    He's a child to the street and a young man to this society
    HE says: "No matter what corner I hang on, a bullet is still willin to find me"
    Luckily he's survived every wound
    Only way to get out is to succeed with ball or spoken tune
    He says: " Since I ain't stop breathin', doesn't mean I won't be chosen soon"

    He can't step on certain territory without a tool in his pocket
    A medal piece next to his stomach cuz he's only safe if he rocks it
    He says: "I must step real and come with game"
    Cuz some greedy ****** will speak ur name
    He says: "We all run the streets and talk the same"
    But diiferent sets with a shot to aim

    He says: "Only love I feel is for my brothers cuz they understand my grief"
    Time ain't changed
    He says: "I've experienced pain, so I'm not afraid of death
    I came close when a ***** tatted a scar on my chest

    He doesn't make much money but when he does, he must provide
    He says: "I know it kills my people, but one day we all gonna die"
    He's got love for his people, all sorts, all kinds
    He says: "But in the hood, aint no clock, just attack times
    So I really ain't got no time to save lives,
    But my own and the people that got my back,
    Therefore I gotta sleep with both eyes open and not act blind"

    This is the lifestyle that many know about
    Livin life in the gutta is the only true route
    He says: "Judge me from my heart and not the area I live around"
    The truth is, he lives and dies by the money he's able to stack
    Thats the only way to live when these streets got u trapped.

    IT'S TRUE!

    deeper than a ditch,
    that's dug 20ft.
    that's how deep,
    yo flow touched me.
    i know that this is true,
    cuz crackheads bleed my blocks.
    some of the crackheads,
    are also the neighborly cops.
    i wish i could say,
    that this neighborhood is only a cruel fantasy.
    but i can't,
    cuz this cold world--is where we live--in reality....................(DEEP-DEEP) [email protected]:angel1:

    The streets that have him trapped are on too too many corners in own neighborhoods. This is so sad, but at the same time so true.

    and like u say in your flow
    livin life in the gutta is the only true route
    but if they reach for higher goals
    higher goals are what will be found
