    Ghetto Man

    I am what I am,
    And I be what I’ll be what I be
    A man you often hate to see
    See, I am a ghetto man
    With a ghetto mind

    But don’t be mistaken
    My mind is not blind
    I am proud of who I am
    Smart and intellectual
    Yet still a ghetto man

    See, I walk the walk
    And talk the talk
    With my baggy jeans
    And my timberlands on
    Standing on the corner
    Talking to my futures babies moms

    Trying to build
    On a foundation
    That one day may be strong
    But who am I kidding

    I’m just a simple ghetto man
    I have simple values
    And pretty much take what I want
    I’ll even spend my last $5
    On a box of Newport’s or a blunt

    I ain’t worried about what I need
    I was born into poverty
    And don’t give a ****
    about your reality


    This is my reality
    And it’ll grab you like gravity
    Like I said before
    I’m just a simple ghetto man

    But you best believe
    That I’ll have your mind deceived
    See, I have a plan
    Something that you just can’t understand
    And that’s why I’ll always be
    That ghetto man

    GHETTO IS SOMEONE ELSE'S TERM

    DON'T BE FOOLED
    SOUNDS LIKE YOU'RE ON THE RIGHT TRACK

    GHETTO IS JUST THE ENVIRONMENT

    Ghetto is a metaphore for what I am using and really saying. Most people precieve ghetto as being bad when the situation really isn't its just a term.
