    Gangster Black

    Gangsta Black, this is me baby
    The gansta brother from the bad side of town
    The dope pusher, the pistol packer, this is me baby
    The wine drinker the midnight jacker
    I don’t give a dam. Never will, don’t think I ever will
    You know what type of brother I am
    The brother with the iron heart
    No emotions - no hurt
    Been a terror since I had to look up to back alley trash cans
    Pimps and players were my role models
    I learned to find peace in thunderbird bottles
    Yeah that’s me, gangsta black, yeah that’s me.

    A brother get tired real quick
    Tired of the same ol’ everyday bullsit.
    Leroy got shot trying to steal pookey’s dope
    Killed that boy dead
    Shot his as point blank in the head
    Never did understand much, I didn’t..
    Never understood love,
    But I understood why the wino was behind the liquor store sitting
    Never understood love, but I understood them extension cord as whippings and skin breaking whelps
    I hate a happy motherflucker hate it to my bones man
    Hate it…. I aint never been happy
    Why come yall get to be?
    why come yall get to smile and not me?
    why come I had to be gangsta black ?
    Why couldn’t I have been mr. Sophisticated with a legit car and a legit job and family
    Why I had to be the one to run through bayous and deal dope in empty fields, flucking over people
    I’m tired, man, I’m tired.
    I’m tired of being…. Gangsta Black.

    your were sooo inside the mind
    of this character...and unfortunately
    this character is real for many
    people of this world...but it is
    our struggles that make us stronger
    if we use those experiences as
    reasons to push harder and succeed
    rather than excuses not to...
    you can never look at others...
    just within yourself, keeping your
    eye on the vision for ones own life

    Brother...this was so Inspirational...

    Your descriptive verse made it possible for us to envision this lost soul, and think about the Gangster Blacks that we've seen and perhaps known. Keep the flows coming.
