    Yo, yeah, yo
    Uhh, uhh, yeah, yo
    Uhh, uhh, yeah, yo
    Uhh, uhh, G. Dep!

    [G. Dep]
    A child of the ghetto, nobody explain it to me
    Livin the scripture the picture they painted for me
    Rippin it runnin and gunnin and aimin for me
    Yo.. (yeah, uhh, yeah)

    I guess you *****z told me right and exact
    Shak, shak, right in his back
    I might just crack while I'm writin this rap
    From even, a tire that snap, I'm light in the sack
    I tell you how I feel and that's part of the deal
    I'm like, Seagal with the steel but "Harder to Kill"
    It's real, big Beans up for lettin me know
    Fifteen bet and you blow, better get dough
    Won't be a second we won't; they lettin me go
    Since pays wisen your ways, allow me to grow
    Aiyyo (yo) swing yeah back to the scene
    Seven-four-eight-oh, can't recall in between
    Whole state pulsate, we can wrinkle the town
    Park jams dark shams *****z breakin it down
    *****z rock the heaters, my clique rocked Adidas
    Didn't know the blocks were where the spots would lead us
    But hey..

    [Chorus]
    A child of the ghetto, nobody explain it to me
    Livin the scripture the picture they painted for me
    Knew what it wasn't, it wasn't the game or the greed
    Rippin it runnin and gunnin and aimin for me
    A child of the ghetto, nobody explain it to me
    Livin the scripture the picture they painted for me
    *****z is gamin they ain't who they claimin to be
    *****z that know me they told me the game it could be - CRAZY

    [G. Dep]
    I take you back to the scene of the stunt
    Scene of that rhyme and you can think what you want
    And if you.. and if you tell me you can get it from here
    Got boom got boom, put **** in the air (yeah yeah yeah)
    Get us some gear to get us in here
    Waited years to get a premier and did it from here
    Harlem - citizen where the kid is in gear, guard him
    *****z in here, who get it in here, we are them
    Take you back to the 80's around
    Polo Grounds, Uptown, eight-eighty a pound
    *****z hit the rooftop, y'all was roofin the rocks
    Other *****z shoe tops, only youth on the block
    You dig me - movin in tops and movin these rocks
    You get it - we movin them blocks to move in them drops
    Skiddin - I guess the *****z told me right and exact
    When they said stop fightin and stack it - get the money *****

    [Chorus]

    [G. Dep]
    Eighty-one I had fun, eight-two I was new
    Eight-three I did me, eight-four I had grew
    Eighty-five it got live, eight-six in the mix
    Eighty-seven in the kicks, eighty-eight in the whips
    Eighty-nine I had the grind, now I know it was flow
    Ninety-one we got guns, ninety-two it was dough
    Nine-three was the key, nine-four was sure
    Nine-five took a dive, nine-six I was poor
    Nine-seven did eleven now I'm made out the gate
    Nine-nine spit rhymes two-thousand and straight..
    ****, I thought I'd give housing a break
    Sit back, countin the cake, and lounge in estates, but yo

    [Chorus] - 2X {*to fade*}
