  • Intro: Xzibit, [J-Ro]

    I really wish I could you know at twenty-one
    youknowhatI'msayin',he he, yo yo
    [I'ma tell you exactly why I do the things
    I do, youknowhatI'm sayin']
    Gotta carry the weight youknowhatI'msayin'
    Go ahead
    Yeah! I break it down like this

    Verse One:

    You see I don't like to remenisce about the past
    The lower class, no clout livin' hand to mouth
    Each and every wrong move the police keep count
    make it real fuckin' easy to get streched out
    I was at the funeral when it all began
    You know the painful transition from a boy to men
    I lost sight of my mother at the age of nine
    didn't understand death nearly lost my mind
    But see life moves on and broke niggas can't change it
    Age ten, new step family arrangement
    at thirteen, I started gettin' hair on my dick
    And noticed me and my sister were gettin' treated like shit
    I would forever be hit with anything in reach
    Then my father would proceed to go to church and preach
    about forgiveness, patience all the shit that he lacked
    Gettin' jump when he said and the head gat cracked
    physical contact was in form of a slap
    at the age of fifteen Xzibit now hit back
    courtesy of my stepbrother, who taught me to scrap
    Left the bitch on the ground with her eyes on black
    Ran away from the house of Teresa and Nate
    Into juvenile detention where I built up hate
    I don't remember the date of the judical debate
    but legally I was now in custody of the state


    And niggas wonder why I sit up in the club and drink
    Say what's up to Xzibit and I still don't speak
    I'm trying to contemplate the next move to make
    Gotta find some way to release this hate

    And niggas wonder why I sit up in the club and drink
    Say what's up to Xzibit and I still don't speak
    I'm trying to contemplate the next move to make
    Gotta find some way Xzibit carry the weight

    Interlude: Xzibit, [J-Ro]

    [Yeah it's fucked up though man]
    [The fuck you doin' in jail]
    Insane man, I don't know man, he he he
    [Yeah wats goin' on down there, gotta get out dude]
    Yeah I be out in couple of weeks man
    [It's popin' man]
    It's cool yo fuck that
    [It's popin' out here]
    They can go on and on for that
    [I'm tellin' you it's popin' man come home]

    Verse Two:

    And that was worse then the treatment I was gettin' at home
    but only now I was fucked up plus all alone
    My father talkin' all crazy to me over the phone
    Turned age sixteen now on my own
    Started running with cats who carried gats cause they had too
    with no hesitation lock load then blast you
    Without a hastle we in a town of hicks
    fuckin' all these chicks
    Sellin' rock by the bricks
    so we feelin' like we mothafuckin' Nino Brown
    At the house when the mothafuckin' man touched down
    Screamin' demands "Let me see your goddamn hands (now)"
    A.T.F. cause of handguns and contraban
    we never kept it in the house
    So of course we clounded
    Only found one pistol took us all down town
    We be out by the end of the afternoon
    gettin' drunk on the strip let the system BOOM!
    Who would assume Mr. QK would chill with a wife
    Ty and Matt caught bodies
    Now they spend there life behind bars
    catchin' scars that will not heal
    niggas don't know the half about keepin' it real

    Chorus 1 1/2


    Like this
    Like this, like that
    Yeah! gotta carry the weight
    Like this euh!
    Bringin live
    Yeah! yeah! like this
    It's Xzibit
    Gotta carry the weight
    Like that yo!
    Like that yo!
