  • Kids coming up from the alleys not like the valleys
    Southtown San Diego rats out here in Cali
    So Cal with the crew to show'em how
    You like me now, with the sound straight underground
    Putt'n it down, lift up this jewel that I have found
    And pass it around, flowing against the crowd
    Hip-hop hardknox rhym'n soon as the tune drops
    Negative small talks, homie star kick'n rocks
    and thake it all down the blocks where it belongs
    A demo of songs but they wouldn't put me on
    Thought I was gone, too late, but who's to say
    My pockets are empty and I got dues to pay
    (B section)
    To the tic tock you don't stop
    To the tic tock you don't quit, hit it

    chorus
    Freestyle, freak with the flava it's the sure shot
    Floss up the Ave, when the spot gets hot
    Still pay'n dues and knock'em out the box

    That's how it is homie like it or not
    It's bad enough late bills keep stacking up
    No one ever told me that it would cost this much
    So buckle up and come along for the ride
    Catching the vibes and staying true to my tribe
    I got mad love for the ones that still around
    Knew you'd be down from the get-go here and now
    You make me proud from the diapers to the grave
    No masqurade, stayed the same like in the day
    On day when we all get saved
    We're gonna change the world no matter what they say
    And stay real playing what we feel
    I'll keep praying for you while you shoot to thrill

    (B Section)

    chorus

    It's been a long time
    It's been a long time com'n
    Hated by many and loved by less
    Hold the thresh, resurrected here in the West
    Clinch the fist; dismiss the stereotype myths
    Loose lips sing ships, then plead the fifth
    You hated this, no reason you hated this
    If you only know you'd be the first one to enlist
    We come in love cause its just how we does
    Fit the frame staying the same as it ever was

    (B Section)
