    Mix it up, in the pyrex...
    Hold up!
    We taking over..
    Got them feigns wondering whats next?
    Modern day bonnie and Clyde..
    the wait is over!
    Soft and fluffy china white..
    Hard rocks.. 8balls keep you warm at night.
    Work all day till I have no might..
    to work another dawn because its a hell of a fight.
    The life is fast and the money spends right,
    Patti Cake..
    Patty cake..
    I was the bakers Wife..
    Slept with a nine under my pill'ow,
    just to make sure them feigns that he sold'
    wouldnt come thru a wind'ow...
    because the guns cocked and ready to blow!
    I was a bakers wife..
    Patti Cake,
    Patty Cake..
    Now I got my masters degree,:teach:
    in public mastery..
    and I cant believe how far Ive come,
    let fools mistake me,
    and they better run! MOtha... Run!


    **Note,
    Never again will i touch the poison that has tainted so many lives, but the money was well spent.. I paid off my college debt.. down to the last cent!:danger:

    Everyone has a story to tell, but not everyone can say that they learned from it. Creatively posed, and good to read you again.

    congratulations

    no regrets, ma.
    crack sells itself.
    to get a degree and advance in life is a harder task than bakin' any cake.
    take it from me.


    this is from my mixxtape Indiana 2 Alabama w.a.r. (we all ready)
    to the T.I. Rubberband Man tune...

    It's Shuga Shane main
    used to cook and cut 'caine
    now i'm in the booth
    truth is.. it's the same thang
    i'm in this rap game
    higher than a aeroplane
    headed for the world trade
    this is what the world made...

    Ay,ay I hang around gators like the swamp thang
    screens falling like rain crawling on them chrome thangs...

    Honesty does live deeper than "the truth". Only the honest question is did you advance, who else were you selling to and who are you going to live with with your advancement papers? The soul writes, is your conscious free? Your true degree earned is the knowledge gained to help and prevent the same old cycle that doesn't actually lead (the whole) anywhere. Kevin
