  • To every girl who ain't never had a daddy
    And every boy who ain't never had a mother
    To that pretty woman lost in the war
    Who seem to think another man won't love her
    All my homies locked up in the pin
    Who can ever seen it, dodge that problem
    Hold your head up high 'cause there's better days
    Hard times, papa's praying for them better ways
    Who know a nigga struggle, but I know pain
    And a whole world a nigga tryina maintain
    Still praying for a little change, feels blue when I can't pain
    Or when your money running low when your rent late
    And all saved credit going after 30 days
    You don't even know the half of my heartache
    Too many letter left, it's the heartbreak
    Anyone know about this young nigga going hard
    I done came too far from my boulevard
    A couple war wounds, few battle stars
    But I'm still here, living, have the same car
    It's a cold world, it don't love you
    Funny when a little faith in the hood do

    And I know my momma praying for me
    And my granny praying for me
    I'm hustling for my family and that's everything in life
    In the day I witnessed my daughter born it was the greatest day of my life
    Take a look in my eyes, look how far a nigga came
    If you search my soul, you understand my pain
    I don't trust nobody and I'll probably never change
    With a lil' bit of hope you can reach your dreams

    For anybody who done never had a dream, you were just like me
    Still believing in myself even when them niggas hating
    And they told me that it could not be
    It was a motherfucking lie, motivate a nigga when you see him on the block
    Tell me how it feel when you struggle with the bills and your momma take pills
    And you never seen your pop
    That put a dent running through my childhood
    Still praying that I wanna live good, selling dope get your hoes then them nice cars
    I'm just thinking if I really should
    Small city, young nigga with a mind set
    Ain't never tryina be another cop vic
    See, I can't lose and I won't quit, lock this God in my heart then I'm conscious
    Remember when they said I wouldn't be shit
    People doubted that I ever had a gift
    Who the fuck are you to judge me, nigga?
    I will never let 'em sink my ship
    With the trials and tribulations nigga, still I stand
    Thank God in advance

    And I know my momma praying for me
    And my granny praying for me
    I'm hustling for my family and that's everything in life
    In the day I witnessed my daughter born it was the greatest day of my life
    Take a look in my eyes, look how far a nigga came
    If you search my soul, you understand my pain
    I don't trust nobody and I'll probably never change
    With a lil' bit of hope you can reach your dreams

    Growing up I wanted to be like Jordan
    Even though I couldn't really afford it
    Who's to say I can't be an Obama
    A Tiger Woods worth about a billion dollars
    Everybody wanna sell a lil' coke 'cause it's going to the niggas you know
    Don't nobody wanna be another judge, young niggas only looking for the plug
    Hope, watch your momma doing dope, daddy locked in the pin and you're on your own
    Try to keep your head up, when you're tired and fed up
    Better days gonna come, better days gonna come

    And I know my momma praying for me
    And my granny praying for me
    I'm hustling for my family and that's everything in life
    In the day I witnessed my daughter born it was the greatest day of my life
    Take a look in my eyes, look how far a nigga came
    If you search my soul, you understand my pain
    I don't trust nobody and I'll probably never change
    With a lil' bit of hope you can reach your dreams
