    Yo, I'm from where, you might not make it to see 25
    Get the wrong judge? You might see 25
    It hurts here - hard to sleep through nights
    Need a gun & a good set of eyes just to get through life (damn)
    From where dudes stand around the corners & pump rocks
    To make it off the street, all depends on your jumpshot (word)
    The drugs, the fiends, the pimps, the hoes
    & what you call the slums, I call home (I'm home)
    The funerals, the tears, little girls with kids
    The murals of the friends that we lost through the years (we miss you)
    Kids can't learn 'cause school is overcrowded
    But they got cells for 'em though they say it's overcrowded (it's crazy)
    I can't lie, take a look around, it's hell here (it's hell here)
    But somethin' keeps me grounded 'cause Lord I'm still here (I'm here)
    The love I feel is hard to explain
    I could live anywhere but nothing's the same as
    (My hood) everything ain't peaches & cream in (my hood)
    Even though it ain't much it's (my hood)
    Take a look what you seen in (my hood)
    'Cause I ain't gon' ever give up on (my hood)
    Maybe I'm just too stuck in (my hood)
    'Cause I ain't gon' turn my back on (my hood)
    Come through, I get love from (my hood)
    'Cause I'm gon' always come back to (my hood)
    Where I seen my pops die in front of me (Curtis!)
    Seen my pops get high right in front of me
    Cops said somebody said I had a gun on me
    I guess that's why they beat me while I had the cuffs on me
    Around here ain't no hope for each other
    'Cause up the block somebody sold dope to my mother
    Please tell me how we 'posed to recover
    When them gunshots touch more people than them songs from Usher (yeah)
    And it don't help seein' all my men get burried
    We should've RIOT when them pigs killed Timothy Stansbury
    Everybody's on parole or probation
    Or on the run or just caught court cases
    Hustlers & con artists & narc faces
    On the same strip chickenheads is car chasin' (what up?)
    Deep down, know it's a better place to be
    But still, I can't seem to get myself to leave
    You might just speak with a different slang
    But 'round the world every hood is the same (the same)
    The dice games, the projects, the cars, & the corner stores
    The barber shops, weed spots, & the liquor stores (yeah)
    Niggas bring them bikes out in the summer time (haha!)
    The hood is a bitch but dawg, she's fun at times (uh huh)
    Everybody plays ball or they tryna rhyme
    My homie just came home for the hundredth time
    At night time mami, get yo' kid (whoa)
    'Cause when them shells start flyin', don't let 'em hit yo' kid
    Petty thieves & stick-up kids, drug businesses
    Sluts suck any dick they get (oh)
    Young girls with men names tattooed on 'em
    With all this AIDS & shit, can't go raw in 'em
    Look dawg, my son is my life, when I'm done with my life
    The only place that I'd rather die is
