    CHICAGO TIMES ​


    Inside a city where the once proud stood
    now corrupted a badly neighborhood

    Crashing gangs up the block
    drugs passing like candy that's hot

    Children playing in the playlot
    only to see them scramble after gunshots

    Chicago has become a broken tale
    full of broken dreams like a deep spell

    The hood is rough and buck wild
    yet some are strong going the long mile

    Still there's some good in todays time
    neighborhood watch against bad crime

    Living inside the hood been a great task
    wondering how long will it last

    from todya's city big blast"
    feat of these chicago street

    Is to stay on stride with mental hope
    and away from this inner hood smoke

    That is full of crime beyond historical time
    from where the good of evil is nolonger blind

    Ole skol brother's tryin gain by an itch
    while new school continue in gletch

    Stories told bold and strong
    while da hood today is sadly clone

    Chicago is nothing like da ole dayz
    house party and basement blaze

    on da corner singing in harmony
    always together like an army

    but today they stand divide
    pimp / pusher / killers now ride

    is da Life of chicago city hood time
    my soul , my soul is slowly dyin .

    Compared to my city, chicago is kind
    I dare ya to try to walk the streets of mine.
    you'll run back to the chi-town with open arms,
    yall really don't know the first thing about harm!!
    so ...
    When it comes to NJ , you need to think twice,
    that's if you truely and dearly ...cherrish your life :D

    what you say may be true
    but da chi-town is like a night mare boo !
    every corner lay a fear
    danger lurks deep and near
    NJ would be a cake walk
    to da history of chicago talk
    big pimpin / gunshot blast
    robbing raping stealin cash
    da city is a land mark
    but beware when it become dark
    pick pocketing bag snatchin
    like chickens, gangz eggs keep hatchin
    death total rize above all
    chicago beatings
    like going to da mall
    my my my how i cry
    deep inside my soul die
    i tell you no lie .....

    What a shame measuring the quality of life by the degree of dread.

    RICH is right, we're in need of some serious life support.
