    ignorance ain’t bliss
    while y’all sippin’ on Cris
    saying “here a dolla, there a dolla
    everybody holla, holla.”
    please
    what you don’t realize
    there’s more to the game
    10 years from now
    how many will remember your name
    first comes those phat beats
    to hypnotize our minds
    then the girls dress naked
    and shake their behinds
    while y’all sittin’ chillin’
    taking a toke
    the whole generation’s going
    up in smoke
    believing the lies that say
    “Thug Lord for life”
    makin’ young girls babies mama’s
    instead of callin them “wife”
    bringing all our poor parents
    nothing but shame
    hoping on Judgement Day
    the Lord forgets your name
    corruption runnin rampant
    no one seems to care
    sweetest sounding words are
    “Live! You’re on the air.”
    jumping around on stage
    looking like buffoons
    if y’all bounced any harder
    y’all would be cartoons
    i’m not violent by nature
    but how much more can I take
    getting tired about hearing
    how much many you make
    and some of y’all ladies
    you know it’s a shame
    i wouldn’t call my cousin’s dog
    by none of those names
    wanna be the illest the baddest
    and a sister named shady
    went on the next track
    and called herself a lady
    the bling it stings
    i’m blind in one eye
    from all that shiny crap
    you probably found at the Y
    the dreams the drama
    you slapped your baby mama
    she thought she was the girl of the week
    but you laughed and told her
    she was just a freak
    and if all of this
    fails to make you think
    to the lowest depths of Hell
    i will watch you sink
    faster than a diamond
    in a bottle of Cris
    ignorance ain’t bliss….


    The end?

    You ain't playing. :grin: I like how you flowed with this truth.

    " 10 years from now how many will remember your name "

    Oh they all will be there as long as the Cris is flowing. Let the money get short, and you'll always find yourself short on friends and support.


    " bringing all our poor parents nothing but shame hoping on Judgement Day
    the Lord forgets your name " :teach:

    Yeah, right.

    To everyone else, thank you so much for reading and responding! I wasn't sure if I would offend anyone by posting this. I guess, then, so far I haven't....
