Say he wanna be
Shorty's gonna be a Thug
Said he wanna be
One day he's gonna be
Said he's wanna be
Shorty's gonna be a Thug
Said he's gonna be
One day he gonna be
Say he wanna be
Shorty's gonna be a Thug
Said he gonna be
One day he's gonna be
Said he wanna be
Shorty's gonna be a Thug

He was a nice middle class nigga
But nobody knew the evil he'd do
When he got a little bigger
Get off the final blaze
While puffing on a Newport
plottin' on a another way to catch a case
Was only sixteen, yet convicted as a felon
With a bunch of old niggas
But you the only one who ain't telling
I tell you it's a cold world, stay in school
You tell me its a man's world, play the rules
And fade fools, 'n break rules until we major
Blaze up, getting with hoes through my pager
Was raised up, commencing to money makin' tactics
It's getting drastic, niggas got automatics
My fingers on the trigga, Tell the lord
To make way for another straight Thug Nigga
I'm sitting getting buzzed, looking for some luv
from the homies, cuz shorty wanna be a Thug



Chorus
Said he gonna be
Say he gonna be
One day he's gonna be
Shorty's gonna be a Thug
Said he gonna be
One day he gonna be
Say he wanna be
Shorty's gonna be a Thug
Said he wanna be
One day he gonna be
Say he wanna be
Shorty's gonna be a Thug

Straight from the Hall to the Penn
Adolescent nigga scaling weight
and standing Six feet Ten
He carried weight like a Mack truck
Gonna bust on some playa haters
if the mutha fuckas act tuff
Then thats when the lethal weapon with the razor
This little nigga smoking weed and getting blazed up
No one could figure, when the guns blast pull the trigga
Could take the life of a young nigga guns bigger
No mother and father, you see, the niggas all alone
Old timers my role model, the war zone
Released with this game 'til its a part of me
My heart don't beat no fear and it ain't hard to see
The future is looking dim
I'm trying to make a profit out of living in this sin
I'm in the dark getting buzzed, looking for some love
out with the homies, cuz shorty wanna be a Thug



Chorus
Said he gonna be
Say he gonna be
One day he gonna be
Shorty's gonna be a Thug
Said he gonna be
One day he gonna be
Say he wanna be
Shorty's gonna be a Thug
Said he wanna be
One day he gonna be
Say he wanna be
Shorty's gonna be a Thug

Shorty gonna be a thug


(Tupac Talking)


You little bad ass nigga, to the young niggas
gotta stay sharp nigga, play your part
you got plenty of time (you bad mutha fuckas)
You only get three mistakes, then thats life,
big baby (niggas craaazy)
watch the signs
Damn, you ain't but sixteen nigga?
Sixteen?!?!
That's a bad muthafucker
