  • (Verse 1, N.A.R.D)
    Look in the heart in the ghetto, where we be shooked up
    From black losin' their life, now everytime we look up
    Finally pop him, throw away, just learn, they wanna book us
    Chicago political criminals like a crook Church
    To the Al Capone city we love so much
    But when we give our love way, now who the fuck gon' love us?
    We die young, and they don't care
    But the old folks still lookin' for they Medicare
    And it's somethin' on my mind I gotta tell ya
    My people who surronded me, they thought I was a failure
    But I, appear to be that nigga from the start
    Cause I'm down for my motherfuckin' niggas in my heart

    (Hook, Johnny P)
    Said it's gonna beee, alriiight (Said it's gonna be, alright)
    Only better, for me
    Said it's gonna beee, alriiight (Said it's gonna be, alright)
    Only better, for meee

    (Verse 2, AK)
    Guns blastin', they after me
    Like an assassin, neighborhood not lastin'
    They burn it down, like fuck them bastards
    Police be watchin', from the other block and
    They crucial, put the car in neutral
    They try to school, people don't run jokes
    Different day, same shit, so I hustle wit' my head up
    Get'cha paper, what'chu scared of?
    I ain't no joke so, put the jokes up in a choke hold
    My children need, don't stay so
    New shoes and some nice clothes
    I guess is what we fight fo'
    Children of the ghetto, reach for the stars
    Never think to me-sss, cause you know who you are

    (Johnny P)
    Why don't you hoold yo' head up
    Fooor meeee

    (AK)
    This what I said to him

    (Hook)
    Said it's gonna beee, alriiight (Said it's gonna be, alright)
    Only better, for me
    Said it's gonna beee, alriiight (Said it's gonna be, alright)
    Only better, for meee

    (Verse 3, Belo)
    I was a hustla as a shorty, had to make it pop off
    Nigga gave me lip and he flinched, I knocked his socks off
    Fuck paddle, bubble the coke, and watch it rock off
    White man designed a blue-print, to clear the block off
    The snakes always fill up the plate, and niggas fed up
    We need to catch they ass in the yard, and shake they head up
    Ya sista always struggles wit' babies, just keep ya head up
    And brothas in the pen doin' time, don't ever let up
    A motherfucka know what it is, to have to strive again
    That's why we hit the bricks and shoot shit, when this go bobblin'
    We tat the dead off in our skin, to keep the mob within'
    I never wanna have to go rob, or have to starve again

    (Hook)
    Said it's gonna beee, alriiight (Said it's gonna be, alright)
    Only better, for me (Ric Jilla: Yeah)
    Said it's gonna beee, alriiight (Said it's gonna be, alright)
    Only better, for meee

    (Ric Jilla)
    Baby it's gon' be alright
    Homie it's gon' be alright
    Hold yo head up
    Baby it's gon' be alright
    Homie it's gon' be alright

    (Verse 4, Ric Jilla)
    You only get "One Life to Live", and these ain't no soaps
    Ain't no joke, nowadays it ain't no hope
    An opportunity for you and me to follow our dreams
    But me and my team, finally plan a powerful scheme
    So we can try to make a way, that's why I take it "One Day"
    At a time, I write rhymes, and get out here on the grind
    Cause man, it's Do or Die for you and I, out here in the struggle
    It's gon' be alright, nigga be about yo hustle
    We almost, here now, we can't stop here
    We ain't gon' quit til' we get everything they got here
    Cause I know how it feel, to not to have your bread up
    But even though you fed up, my nigga keep yo head up

    (Hook)
    Said it's gonna beee, alriiight (Said it's gonna be, alright)
    Only better, for me
    Said it's gonna beee, alriiight (Said it's gonna be, alright)
    Only better, for meee

    Said it's gonna beee, alriiight (Said it's gonna be, alright)
    Only better, for me
    Said it's gonna beee, alriiight (Said it's gonna be, alright)
    Only better, for meee
