    In the ghetto we scrape for scraps.
    Saps get kidnapped and clapped over
    pennies.
    Destined to die in their early twenties.
    I'm one of many in the struggle that ain't got any.
    And you got plenty.
    I don't envy cause it ain't in me.
    I'm on a pace to take your wealth.
    To see how many times that I can make you break yourself.
    My ghetto is just a gutter with no bread and butter.
    We ain't even trying to look out for one another.
    And all we gots is us and this misery.
    My whereabouts remain a mystery.
    Statistically I lead the league.
    Power and money feed the greed.
    Wealth is determined by how hungry you are to succeed.
    Success is best enjoyed when it's been earned.
    The bridge is too hard to cross when it's been burned.
    You need to learn that's why I try to reach you with the lesson the streets will teach.
    Let the ghetto convince you that po' people complete you.
    You floss it just cause it's frozen that make it meant to be stolen.
    How I be rolling,
    deep penitentiary posing.
    How much you holding?
    Bet your bank I become the chosen.
    Ghetto is golden.
    These rookies egoes is swolen.
    You forgot where you from.
    For every suburb there sit a slum.
    Ain't enough bread for you to get a crumb.
    Po' people are quick to get the pistol.
    Pucker when you hear the hum and the whistle,
    cause missles is coming to kiss you.
    If I like what I see,
    I take it.
    Technically that make it free.
    Ghetto been good to me.
