    One thirty

    Im sittin on 22’s cousin

    And the boy just talking, only speak what I see
    It’s a good side to everything, but there lies a snake in the garden

    The spoke

    Where I’m from

    Cats beg for dollars
    We Mitchell and ness collas

    Some where sacks to deflect the rain
    A woman wears umbrellas in the sun to hide pain

    In the city
    Where one places his life;s meaning on financial gain
    My best friends smoke the bible to keep a flame

    The same bible that grows behind the tumbleweeds
    That passes the corner
    Don’t say I forewarned

    Not to step in my city
    It’s not just the place
    Where Janet showed a lil *****…..

    We got people that died off the gambling addictions
    It’s the birth of me, but the death of an unsaved affliction

    Comin from where I’m from
    The streets
    My home is unknown
    Hey b
    Can I smoke with u
    Take me home
    To a zone

    Here the zone……

    Me
    You
    Historically black
    Mildews and fades to black
    I’m talking u fool
    U
    I see cats at school
    Not even enrolled at school
    But be knowing
    Bout mo events than I do

    At work
    There so many gays
    I swear
    I don’t judge, don’t understand they ways
    I’m just here to get paid
    I ain’t goin get into that
    I just released a underground book
    And life is still tainted plat

    Picture that
    U wanna know my life
    Not even really my life
    Cuz my life belong to a higher
    Power
    I trying to reach that
    My brotha
    Comin from where I’m from

    Luv is misspelled not only in the text
    But the spiritual form
    See many girls want love
    But I see the latter

    Money behind the dreams
    We see things
    No dreams come true
    In this world
    In this day
    This life
    Land
    Who put ourselves as rulers
    Land-lord
    But this is
    Where we from
