  • A yo, I walk down the block with my stomach in knots
    Spent time hustling, running from cops
    Broke as a joke, no ends at all
    Can't play ball and my Timbs is small
    Can't buy trees with government cheese
    I rather be where its breeze, *****s bubbling ki's
    My moms got two jobs one on her knees
    and writin letters to the governor "Please call off the deeds"
    My baby mother with another brother with cash
    and drive by roll down the window and laugh
    I solve all my problems with indo and hash
    Bought my daughter a Nintendo now she calling it Dad
    My landlord's a jerk, the water don't work
    My little sister twelve and she bought her own skirt
    Rather do Kirk than do her homework
    Talk blunts and boys and she'll jump for joy
    ****'s twisted, opportunity not but I missed it
    Out in the park gettin lifted
    So now I'm sittin here **** out of luck without a buck
    and it don't make a difference

    So do you hear me?
    'Cause if you don't I'll come up close and say it clearly
    I got to know I got to go
    I strive for my pay each and every way
    but this type of **** it happens everyday

    It's like I'm trapped in a maze walk around in a daze
    I won't rest 'til I'm paid or I'm down in my grave
    I want to look tough, but my sneakers is scuffed
    Everyday pants in the week is enough
    I had a little money but it came and it went
    Now its either pay the rent or stay in a tent
    and it don't make sense how the **** is intense
    and all you got up in your pocket is lint, you get the hint?
    I had a cigarette for breakfast, just for beginners
    Cried for my lunch and sleep for dinner
    I tried to go to church, priest called me a sinner
    He called me everything except for a winner
    I'm walking in the rain wishing things would change
    It ain't a game, mad I pawned all the rings and chains
    Emotionally scarred form losing my job
    Pass the nod *****, times is hard

    [CHORUS]
    So do you hear me?
    'Cause if you don't I'll come up close and say it clearly
    I got to know, I got to go
    I strive for my pay each and every way
    but this type of **** it happens everyday
    Now would you check me?
    If I was you and you was me, would you respect me?
    I got to know I got to go
    I strive for my pay each and every way
    but this type of **** it happens everyday

    I ain't gonna front, all I want is a blunt
    a pair of blue and yellow dunks and my hundreds in chunks
    But, people see me, put they purse to the front
    I'm waking up early on the first of the month
    Honeys don't respect when you call 'em collect
    and it's 25 cent you can call 'em direct
    I put my life on the line I ain't making a dime
    ***** call me "Never mind , man you're wastin' your time"
    A yo, I'm livin' in the ghetto and I'm tryin' to survive
    At the same time a ***** rolling by in a five
    Can find a drive for a 9-5
    It's like I only get by when I'm feeling the high
    And I ain't got no smoke, the elevator broke
    I'm at the end of my rope tryin to find a way to cope
    I'm sipping on Gin thinking how I could win
    I don't know where it begins but this is where it could end

    CHORUS
