Please believe that, some how, some way
We gotta make it up out the hood some day
Some how, some way
We gotta make it up out this life, c'mon
Some how, some way
We gotta make it up out the hood some day
Some way, we gotta make it up out this life

Weather we dribble out this motherfucker
Rap metaphors and riddle out this motherfucker
Work second floors, hospital out this motherfucker
Some how we gotta get up out this motherfucker
Some day the cops'll kill a motherfucker
I don't always want to be this drug dealing motherfucker, damn
Wish I could take us all on this magic carpet ride
Through the sky, I
Use to play the hall of fifth floor, me and my boys we
All poor getting high, I
Seen the worst of the worst, I deserve every blessing
I received I'm from the dirt
I, planted my seed on unfertile land
Myrtle Park, Marcy, Flushing and Nostrand, and
Still I grew, some how I knew that the sun'll shine through
And, touch my soul take hold of my hand
Look man, a tree grows in Brooklyn

Some how, some way
I gotta make it up out the hood someday
Some how, some way
I gotta make it up out this life, c'mon
Some way, I gotta make it up out the hood someday

To old Nell, Sigel Street I ain't forget you
Twenty niggas on the block tryna chase that buck
Nosey neighbors and haters keep their face on stuck
Cops roll up on the pavement, break the dice games up
Moms smoke, kids can't chase the ice cream truck
Girls fighting over rope, the young boys hype things up
Niggas fighting over coke, the young boys light things up
All the petty ass wars f*ck the night scene up
Remember Lil' Eddie draw, man how he light mean up
Then they wonder why we light green up
Back to back steamers, trying to relax but I can't, I lean up
Ain't the L or the refer that steam up (that steam up)
It's my head and I'm stressed to the point I get a fever
Thinking 'bout the block and all the mothers and kids
That can't leave and how the Chinks gotta feed 'em
For the rest of their life
The fucking wings, fried vegetable rice (gotta be kidding)
No breakfast Cap'n Crunch at night
How kids eating lunch at night?
In their beds all bunched in tight
No less than three or four, know how it go
Two by the foot, two by the headboard
Man, I'm getting scared for them (yeah I know)
That's how I feel for 'em
And we gotta grip the shorties on the block
All they do is smoke weed and drink forties
Cop their quarties
Enough to get the latest Roc, newest Glock, and old Jordies

Some how, some way
We gon' make it up out the hood someday
Some how, some way
We gon' make it up out this life
And some how, some way
We go' make it up out the hood one day
Some way, we gon' make it up out this life

Right here another lil' story 'bout this clique I claimed
Another chapter based on how I get that game
Hanging round my neighborhood, bang my street
Sit and watch the passer-bys play my sweep
South-side, Sunnyside
Is the blocks I run, South Acres, South Park
Niggas all got guns
Over here we got this code Charlie, get that there
We know tomorrow ain't a promise so we get that tnow
F*ck sitting in the living room guarding the steps
Working inside a smoke house starving to death
Serving these nigga flippers, quarter-ounces and zippers
Agents snapping your picture 
Neighbors plotting to get ya
Situations is critic 
I was out here to get it
Living it like a savage, 'cause nigga I gotta have it
And holding back on a motherfucker, I'm in it for the haul, dog
Erase enough to walk it down and f*ck it all y'all
Lord be willing and the creek don't rise
I'ma be a nigga and these streets gon' rise
(Some how, some way)
(Some how, some way)
I'ma be a nigga and these streets gon' rise
(Some how, some way)

Some how, some way
We gotta make it up out the hood some day
Some how, some way
We gotta make it up out this life, c'mon
Some how, some way
We gotta make it up out the hood some day
Some way, we gotta make it up out this life
