    He had a thugged out mentality
    Robbing the n****** in the street
    He had to survive, He had to eat!
    anyway thats how he preceived it
    had his pistal on lock and load
    took it everywhere he would go
    Stuborn @ss soul
    Hustlers secretly feared him
    Wanted to keep him near them
    Knowing he'll go all out
    Might even take the food out their mouth
    His pockets had to be fed

    Then he saw her
    Stopped him dead in his tracks
    she rippled down his back
    He had to know her
    To show her
    That he'll guard her with his life
    Hiding all his strifes
    He kept her clueless and protected
    From his Thugged out electives
    She was the taste in his mouth
    Butter scotch with a Hennesey shout out
    His boo, his cutie, his dose of reality
    His secret place to to rest his head securely

    Eventually he got caught up in some sh**
    Pacifying a double 20 to life bid
    She had to live
    So she did
    Damm!
    He missed her!

    Its been 15 years since he's been gone
    The last 6 he did alone
    Eventually she went back
    He was her dose reality
    and ever so cleverly she protected him
    from her Thugged Out Mentality!
