Foundation Lyrics - Xzibit

Review The Song (2)



Verse 1

When I look you in your eyes I can see my own
Straight love manifested in flesh and bone
You's a breath of fresh air in this world of shit
You was born to be a soldier don't ever forget
Hit back when hit
Use force that's effective
All these bitches and women
Son, please be selective
This is California can't stick your dick in everything
We will survive necessarily by any means
Let no man ever hold you down or supress you
It's the 90's the police just arrest you,
disrespect you on occasion take life
By the time you come of age they'll probably blast on sight
It's a shame they protect them but try to serve us
sponsored links
When your neck is on the line stand ground then bust
In God we trust but just incase keep it loaded and locked
Ready to rock
Then shake the spot
The Foundation

Verse 2

You came from a long line of killers and drug dealers
Who forever smoke bud
So it's probably in your blood
Realize you can only run the streets so long
Then the streets run you into the ground then gone
It's kinda ruff trying to teach you what's right from wrong
Same shit different day
It's the same ol' song
If the time ever comes that I meet my match
Take control of my assets
Fuck startin' from scratch
Take care of your mother
Keep yourself on track
Just cause niggas get behind you don't mean they got your back
Beware of the serpent
Cause there's a time in life the mothafucker will strike
And try to make you loose sight
Don't be a fake mothafucker tryin' to keep shit real
Fill cassettes with idle threats with no guts to kill
Son if you ever pull heat
Then use it
If you got a chance to walk away
Then do it
Total domination takes full concentration in all situations
A solid foundation

Verse 3

You are the foundation
Begining of a new generation
I remember hospital hallway pacin'
I was anxious as fuck to see your face shine
Only to find that yours looked like mine
So it's like I'm livin' twice at the exact same time
In this life you can't press stop
Then press rewind
Gotta live to the fullest never follow behind no man
Have your own plan, expand your mind
Ain't no paper thin game to raise wannabe thugs
This is nothing but love
Via sattelite Muggs
Take heed when it's your turn to bring new life
Make sure it's the woman you gonna make your wife
Be prepared for the worst
But expect the best
No matter where life takes you
Come home to the West
Survival takes more than just gats and guns
That's words to live by
From a father to a son

agree'd | Reviewer: Brad | 3/2/09

I agree with what was said above. straight fire, yet straight reality. this is the music i listen to that speaks the truth and spits the blue's all at once. The 90's are deffinately dead. but the tracks made back in those days are still alive and well. bring back the truth in the booth, and get rid of these rap fools.



Straight wisdom line after line | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/6/08

I have not heard many RAP songs that were as filled with hood wisdom as this one. Especially since the bling bling era. I am sick to my guts when I here first page color magazine's artists who rap about nothing and are usually able to do it for quite a few minutes in there hottest tracks. Guess I will always love the 90's with 2Pac, Biggie and so many more not as worldwide known as these two, who were able to tell the truth about the reality that surrounds them.

Every once in a while there is a song addressed to an offspring in example "Like father like son" by the Game. I still have not heard enough to consider myself an expert but among those I remembered The Foundation is by far no. 1!

Well I first heard the instrumental version, then read the lyrics and even if I have never heard Xzibit perform it I would always consider it as his greatest achievement.
