    :yo: Yeah, Everybody knows me Im the brotha thats got it all
    You know, gold teeth, fancy car, but know job cause I ball!
    I got 5 Star education, but not from any books
    I learn from the best teachers! I tutor witht he crooks!
    Nah, I dont go to school to get what I need
    Reading, Writing, doesnt mean squat
    I get my knowledge from gansta movies and smoking weed!
    OH! By the way, I make more in a week then most do in a year
    While you go home to your boring family life
    I run the streets in constant fear!
    So how can you tell me I dont got it all
    Man, one week I only heard 3 times
    "Freeze Get Your Hands up on the Wall"!
    I go on vacation when I want!
    Most of the time its to the county jail
    But remember Im a baller, it want be long before I make bail!
    Give me a few days, Ill call up one of my women
    Dang, "I forgot to pay child support about 5 of them
    Just might be trippin"!
    Yeah you seen me in the club
    Flossin, but stumbling, High off some drug!
    Im even famous, I was the hero on the news,
    The one in the shootout with them thugs!
    Gang banging, car jacking, Ive done it all!
    But none of my survival tatics prepared me for this fall
    No one even told me Id be telling this story behind 4 walls
    Or sitting back reminiscing on how hard I use to ball!
    Oh, that boring family life, I wish I could trade spots
    Im tired of taken showers with 25 men in a room as big as a card board box!
    All those women I had, I dont even have to worry
    Word around town is......My first baby's momma ran to another brother
    Quick, Fast and in a Hurry!
    All those trips to jail have turned into a life long stay
    Judge threw the book at me, said " Sorry young Bro you'll never see the light
    of day!
    Wrapped up in all the things I thought I had, didnt recognize what I was missing!
    Seemed to overlook that I didnt have a FUTURE, thats why Im sitting in Jail
    simply reminiscing :bawling: !

    All the high stepping and fast living, when it comes down to it, is it worth it? So much truth in this scribe.
