    Welcome
    To the Ghetto
    Land of bug infestation
    And crack house socialization101

    Where the ****roach outgrows the rat
    And slumlords get fat
    Off the woes of others

    The Ghetto

    Home of project housing
    Crowding every nook and cranny
    And every knock is the beginning
    Of yet another threat to your way of living

    Where the bars over your windows
    Aren’t for decoration
    Signifying a separate nation
    Under GOD.

    The Ghetto

    Where neighbor
    Rob from neighbor
    And neither
    Has a pot to piss in

    Where GentleMEN
    Of the day
    Turn into PHARMACISTS
    At night
    And two wrongs make
    Everything RIGHT
    When there’s food to eat

    I hear the pulse of the street’s beat
    Beating Just’us lyrics
    Of misleading rhythms
    Leading to allegations of
    Defamation
    Defilement
    Derogatory comments
    And all the negative sentiment
    That explains our nation

    The Ghetto

    Welcome.

    Baller, reminds us why we shouldn't have Ghetto's , but they never seem to go away, what will it take? Very pointed piece.

    That's right.

    Just saw this under So Ghetto of Ang-el. Two stories on the same tragedy.

    We made every movie they ever loved, fam.
