1) I’m tired of bein’ poor and even worse I’m black
My stomach hurts so I’m lookin’ for a purse to snatch
Cops give a damn about a negro
Pull the trigger kill a nigga he’s a hero
Give the crack to the kids who the hell cares
One less hungry mouth on the welfare

Poll Who sang these lyrics?

2) It was all a dream
I used to read Word Up magazine
Salt’n’Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine
Hangin’ pictures on my wall
Every Saturday Rap Attack, Mr. Magic, Marley Marl
I let my tape rock ’til my tape pop

Poll Who sang these lyrics?

3) I’m from the hood, stupid! What type of facts are those?
If you grew up with holes in your zapatos
You’d celebrate the minute you was havin’ dough
I’m like, “Fuck critics, you can kiss my whole asshole

Poll Who sang these lyrics?

4) Though our thugs ain’t here, the love is here
And we gon’ rep ’til slugs kill us here
This for my dawgs stuck in the struggle tryin’ to gain
Smokin’ trauma, sniffin’ Ra while sellin’ cocaine

Poll Who sang these lyrics?

5) Getting choked by the detectives yeah yeah now check the method
They be asking us questions, harass and arrest us
Saying, “We eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast.”

Fuck, nut, get up, that’s abortion money
I’ll kill if I have to, don’t force me homie
I get that schoolyard duct tape extortion money

in the middle of the night
Suckin on human blood
Is that your appetite?

Now everybody knows there’s exceptions to this rule
Now don’t be getting mad, when we playing, it’s cool
But don’t you be calling out my name
I bring wrath to those who disrespect me like a dame

And we’ll never be worlds apart

Baby, ‘cause in the dark
You can’t see shiny cars
