    THUG LIFE (THE ORIGINAL VERSION)

    Tupac had it tatted on his chest,
    And thug life put that ***** to rest.
    Does thug life originate in the hood,
    With that cat claiming he’s the best?

    Naw, it’s trickled down with the history of the U.S.
    The sweet land of liberty is where the kings of thug life live.
    We’ll drop bombs on Iraq, China, and Cuba and then try to make it a positive.
    Thug Life in the U.S. today lives in the White House,
    Not in the hood in front of the boarded up crack house.
    What exactly is Thug Life?

    Having a mentality where you don’t give a ****!
    Being in the wrong place at the wrong time is tough luck.
    The government decides to put you in jail,
    But they’re doing the exact same **** on a larger scale.

    Bush is allowed to play hard ball with Iraq and the Chinese,
    Claiming red, white and blue is the toughest…oh please!
    Only Jah can bring me to my knees.

    Young drug dealers giving’ their dollars to the big man behind the scenes.
    The big man is a government official.
    He sends the cash to Israel because that’s where his fake God resides.

    These kids have the same American dreams in their minds.
    They’re just choosing to use the back door method to crime.
    America, I was taught to love, cherish, and even die for you.
    I’ve learned what a thug is…Thank You.

    I know my people aren’t half-bad,
    They’re just imitating their greatest teacher….

    It’s you ------- > D.A.D.
