    REP YOUR HOOD KID!!!!!

    What hood you represent?
    I represent the Greens, you know how we do.
    You rep your hood,
    But that **** ain’t no good.

    The “Science Projects,” also known as the projects.
    It’s the place that taught you to be strong.
    But at the same time, it stabbed you in the back.
    It’s the spot where GODS stoop to selling crack.

    It’s where bodies fall from drive-bys.
    It’s where the 5-year old fell from the 14th floor,
    And on the cement below is where his blood dried.

    It has raped, conned stabbed, shot, kidnapped, and murdered you.
    And what the hell do you turn and do?

    You rep your hood.
    You believe in it.
    You believe in the hallways that are filled with the stench of piss and sh**.

    It’s where the heroin addict sleeps right next to apt 703.
    It’s where spirits are shattered and dreams are deferred.
    Like the little boy from the 2nd floor.
    He has psychological issues of a Vietnam Vet.
    But the messed up part is…he wasn’t even born yet.

    The war was over 30 years before he was conceived.
    But the youngin’ knows the battle grounds like you wouldn’t believe.

    Why do we believe in the bricks?
    Why do we believe in that ****?

    Somebody raise your hand and explain it to me.

    SOMEONE IN THE CROWD GIVES ME THEIR SIDE.

    I reply:
    I respect your choice of words, but you don’t have enough to make me believe.
    Fu** the system that built it and I’ll pray for the fool that reps it.
    Don’t rep your hood,
    Rep what’s good!
    And trust me *****, it ain’t yo hood.

    Celebrate the strength of your people!!!!

    rep whats good
    leave the rest to waste
    moves made in haste
    leave a tart taste
    mad moves without moderation
    will get your *** maced
    laced from haters in the hood
    stay on dl donuts if you know whats good
    or end up crammed in the corrupt contagious canaster
    beat to death with louie wood...

    keep it flowing
    peace

    so true 1poet...so true. Only if I could figure it out why our outlandishness is so legendary. We have so much more to offer.
