    have you ever been to vegas
    for me it was a first

    gambling, drinking and S.E.X
    each to quench the devils thirst

    Everyone walking around
    like they are so alive

    But like fliez to shiss
    the walking dead was feeding on the liez

    one man told me
    pull a slot... i should do it cause it's free

    come on man.. get ur head out the sand
    free don't exist in this un-reality

    the craziest thing was all the beautiful black men
    trying so hard to be my P.I.M.P

    there's Power In My People, I said
    and ya'll aint finna sell me

    they thought I was so very cute
    said I was the most beautiful girl that they had seen

    I hugged the bothers and loved the brothers
    man they said, they thought that all sisters were pose'd to be mean!!!

    They all had one thing in common
    That they felt so all alone

    I said to them keep ya head up
    cause one day we can all go home

    the funniest comedian crownd
    was some white broad.. well, well, well

    I thought fo sho it was Kat Williams
    and the homey Dave Chapelle

    There was nothing Black in Vegas
    only the deceit of white-type greed

    All the hate and money mongers
    Love is what we need

    but my left hand was there
    and what I gave back was my right

    love sweet love in the depths of it all
    got me walking towards the light

    now don't get offended or act like you are shocked
    but it white people can see Elvis

    then I can see TUPAC!

    Plenty of dazzle in Vegas, plenty of trouble to get into also, you brought us into that world with your words so well. And that last line, what an appropriately comical way to finish.

    Hi Miss Lady
    Welcome Home Little Sister
    This flow about Vegas is great !
    Showing love in Vegas now that was cool
    Because most are there for one thing.
    I would have thought, and you showed that
    Even with a pocket full of money. It can't replace
    Loneliness.
    And I seen Tupac chilling here on the East side last week.
    Yeah! I do agree.


    Peace~N~Love
