    ai ight
    i ain't really felt like sharin nothin yet
    but let me kick something anyway
    diss is gon' be called, "i don't undastand"

    i don't undastand (why)
    i like workin so much, an now i can't get a job
    and i'm broke as -what-
    i don't undastand why
    when i was drunk that night and them 11 kids
    beat me with bats, guns n whateva and left
    me for dead
    why come God ain't let me pass...
    i don't undastand (why)
    when you hurt so bad, not many people will listen
    but they'll take you to the hospital
    quick as hell
    i don't undastand (why)
    i've been rappin for over 15 years
    and still won't QUIT.
    i don't undastand (why)
    many early Rastafarian leaders
    were treated like the people in movies
    that believe in ghosts, vampires, and witches..
    Yeah, i do..my bad --Babylon--
    anyway
    i don't undastand (why)
    my boi Dix shot himself in the chest 2 committ
    suicide-sound like a set up 2 me
    plus i think headshots do it much betta
    but he was one of the hardest dudes i know though
    i don't undastand (why)
    my ex told me i'd neva be in another relationship
    an i believed her
    i don't undastand (why)
    i worked hard all my life to get education
    an live as righteous as i can
    an now all i want to do is get a spot an a pack
    so i can flip some crack
    yeah, i do.. --Babylon--
    movin on...
    i don't undastand (why)
    i keep reachin out to really meet you
    and all i end up truly touchin is myself
    or a pistol grip
    i don't undastand (why)
    a millionaire in Chicago
    didn't know ANYBODY that could
    put me on for a job

    but i ain't all that bad a kid..

    Very Nice flow Antar

    " i don't undastand (why)

    So true so true. The system has failed me and you. A woman should never tell a man he won't be nothing. If he owned the world he would give her something. Man comes up. Man goes down. Rest on one knee and continue the fight.

    You kicked this one away!
