    I ain't mad at the hustlers rocking their hustle
    Or the dealers dealing their drugs
    Or the strippers shaking it for money
    And acting like two dollar hoes
    They just making money
    And that's the way it goes

    I ain't mad at the bootleggers working the streets
    Or the people fake designers labels
    Or the young ones trying to be famous
    Like the people they see on TV

    And I ain't mad at the brother with two kids
    And two jobs trying to support them
    Or the women that can pay the bills
    Earning next to nothing

    But I am mad at
    The people with money
    And jobs
    Looking at these people and saying
    "Why don't you just get a better job?"

    Well let me explain
    To get a good job
    You need to get into a good school
    To get into a good school
    You need oney
    To get money
    You need a good job
    See the problem?
    If it was that easy
    I would be a g-dd-amn lawyer!

    Well now, if you could figure that out you would be famous, huh? Comical and direct way of pointing out this predicament, I liked this.
