    over there
    seated at yonder table
    are pimps and thugs
    who just AIN'T able
    to understand
    life's not a game
    to be played and won
    and honor attained
    through drug use and guns

    heed that, son.

    fo this life you pay a price....

    I think they think

    life is a game....called Russian Roulette....

    playing the odds against the inevitable..every day..it's just such a shame that so many others get conned into playin along with them..

    young bruthaz need to understand
    they're working against a corrupt system
    the streets
    and the man
