    You were my brother
    from another mother
    what's mines, was yours
    and vice versa
    that's why i can write this
    with absolutely no rehearsal
    as youngin's we was live wires
    always had it poppin'
    just tryin' to live life to the fullest
    ti'll the earth felt like stoppin'
    old heads even admired us
    said we were ahead of our time
    but let me slow down
    cause i'm gettin' ahead of my rhyme
    everybody knew you to be kind of loud
    who me, assassin type quiet
    if you had beef, then i had beef
    in the ft. apache section started 1 or 2 riots
    or like that night on 155th
    across the street from the ruckers
    chillin' with some girls
    when some dudes from the polo grounds mistook us for 2 suckas
    i calmy told them atras de una puta vezin
    and they all stopped poppin' ish and paused
    that's when we both started to slowly reach
    for what we had in our draws

    you was my brother from day one
    what's yours was mine and what's mine was yours
    if peter don't let you in the pearly gates
    tell the angels that i'm coming thru to clap down the doors

    From the streets to the ball court
    you always had the feel
    we played one on one full courts in front of crowds
    not even keepin' score cause we was keepin' it real
    had your eye on the nba
    tryout with the nets, but fell a step short
    and came right back to the streets
    cause that's where we held court
    we had many memorable summers
    like the philly greek fests and jones beach
    where b.i.g. First Performed party and bull – ish
    with heavy d and little cease right there within arms reach
    the tailgate parties at the meadowlands
    pushin' up on cuties from the south in the parking lot twisted
    when they would ask us for our names
    we would often reply 'they call me young, black & gifted'
    all the basement parties
    and the battles in the park
    where the power from street lamps
    made the place spark
    couldn't believe it
    when they told me what happened
    last time I saw you was the night
    I threw my plate at that cook in manhattan
    the same night they murdered X
    I wrote about it in 'Redrum'
    couldn't post pt. 2 due to the lack of the statute of limitation
    on murder so I was limited and then some

    you was my brother from day one
    what's yours was mine and what's mine was yours
    if peter don't let you in the pearly gates
    tell the angels that i'm coming thru to clap down the doors

    Over the years we got departed
    so many cats in our ears
    even the one who gave me the news sounded fake
    cause what was coming out his mouth wasn't matching his tears
    so I had a sit down with your older cousin
    who gave me confirmation
    that's when I blacked out and went home
    and spent the rest of the day in silent meditation
    reflecting on different situations
    like when you were under investigation
    repeatedly violating probation
    that had you barely ducking incarceration
    but eventually led up to your ultimate destination
    I guess heaven was waitin'
    and got tired of seeing you facin'
    all your trials and tribulations
    when I chose the books over the streets
    I know why you didn't come wit' me
    cause you knew if you had beef, I still had beef
    and you could always call or come get me
    and now I gotta be patient
    ti'll I get to see you again
    from the cradle to the grave
    you still my mutha F'n friend....................

    you was my brother from day one
    what's yours was mine and what's mine was yours
    if peter don't let you in the pearly gates
    tell the angels that i'm coming thru to clap down the doors
