VITAM IMPENDERE VERO, IVVENALIS

’96 Big-Body Sittin’ on Chrome

This is why Tupac is still the best rapper.

Somebody wake me I’m dreamin, I started as a seed the semen
Swimmin upstream, planted in the womb while screamin
on the top, was my pops, my momma screamin stop
From a single drop, this is what they got
Not to disrespect my peoples but my poppa was a loser
Only plan he had for momma was to f*** her and abuse her
Even as a little seed, I could see his plan for me
Stranded on welfare, another broken family
Now what was I to be, a product of this heated passion
Momma got pregnant, and poppa got a piece of ass
Look how it began, nobody gave a f*** about me
Pistol in my hand, this cruel world can do without me
How can I survive? Got me askin white Jesus
will a n**** live or die, cause the Lord can’t see us
in the deep dark clouds of the projects, ain’t no sunshine
No sunny days and we only play sometimes
When everybody’s sleepin
I open my window jump to the streets and get to creepin
I can live or die, hope I get some money ‘fore I’m gone
I’m only 19, out tryin to hustle on my own
on this block where everybody and they pops tryin to slang rocks
I’d rather go to college, but this is where the game stops
Don’t get it wrong cause it’s always on, from dusk to dawn
You can buy rocks, glocks or a herringbone
You can ask my man he’s a mind reader
Keep my nine heater all the time this is how we grind
Meet up at the cemetary then get smoked out, pass the weed n****
That Hennessey’ll keep me keyed n****
Everywhere I go n***** holla at me, “Keep it real G”
And my reply til they kill me
Act up if you feel me

I was born not to make it but I did
The tribulations of a ghetto kid, still I rise
