    Down in da hood
    where black G's stood
    on every corner
    like a square box
    selling jox like a strap
    some workin nookie
    payday for the cookie
    rapid bang! bang!
    black on black exchange
    gunfire slang for a spot
    inside our four corner box


    Misguided love of unity
    destroying our community
    youth at lost
    adults no longer boss
    lives now toss as trash
    how long will it last
    clashing soul to soul
    sour notions for a name
    promotion of rankz
    can't take that to a bank


    word play used foolishly
    been fool by da man tool
    who try and rule the hood
    where once proud stood
    calling the hype namez
    who seem to claim our kindz
    controling da black mindz
    on da corners of the hood
    scream'min( B)......this & that
    where my (N)..........at
    before peers holla (F).... dat


    Becoming a ~BNF~ of the new age
    still cage in the struggling maze
    like a stolen rip page
    down in the hood ,street life
    wanna be thugz just a burn in da rug
    need some mother love a father hug
    some on da corner smokin bud
    others left laying deep in da mud
    struggling in poverty still no unity
    i'm fighting to save our community


    I'm fighting a war of battle tyme
    from da black on black silly crime
    rim rockin da gang wit lyrics to da brain
    cleaning da stain of shame in da hood
    where the proud once highly stood
    bruthas & sistas it's an all out cry
    to end our hoods deep divide
    of all the destruction and pain
    that had label us in shame , place'd this
    name on our people wake up don't be
    another sleeper of Da hood corner


    I promise not to get caught up in between
    power of the hand and struggle of the mind
    and unify the unity to empower our people
    da hood these corners this community
    without controlling da jurisdictional box.......

    What you describe is gritty and real. And the thing about it is, where does it all end, and will we live to see that change? Sounds like you are fighting to make a difference, and I highly commend you for that brotha. Do flow on!!

    There is nothing that needs to be said more than the fact that our hoods can do good with a little bit of effort and time and putting more than just the foolish on the young poeple's minds that's what we need and I'm sure that the more people we have thinking like you the sooner we'll get there. nice drop
