I want to dedicate this one to Robert 'Yummy' Sanderford

Give anything, to be that innocent again, when I was ten
Tell them *****s started slangin' that they don't know me
Lately I've been tryin' to make a bill-ion, can you play me
If them cowards really want me, come get me, and even I
Put down the top, now we flossin'
Workin' with a twenty sack of indo, feelin' good
And I can't help but reminisce back when we slung drugs, know it's bad
Couldn't see unless we learned to slang dope to fiends

As a young *****
My memories as a young *****
Young *****

That's when my momma started gettin'' high
All our homies livin'' short lives, I couldn't cry
Let me get my dead homies high
"Me Against the World" stuck in misery, as a young *****
Life full of riches avoid snitched cause they shady, back in the days
But that's before they taught them gang-bangers how to spray
Every stadium that I go, when will they change?
Remember how it was, to be a young *****
He's the kind of G like everybody knows
He's always G'd up, from head to toe
Always got it blown like Al Capone
He's the downest G I've ever known
I'm telling you
Yo, y'all *****s don't know how good you really do got it
And peep what the **** they want to do for the rest of the life
You dumb *****
Now that I'm grown, I got my mind on bein' somethin'
Tryin' to maintain in this dirty game, keep it real
Break away from these dumb *****s
Fame is a fast thing, that gang bangin'
At the wrong place at the wrong time, no longer livin''
I watch the murder rate increases, and even worse
The projects lookin' hopeless, where
Sometimes I hate when brothers act up, I hit the weed

As a young *****
My memories as a young *****
Young *****

As a young *****
My memories as a young *****
Young *****

Little bad ************s from the block (that's right)
Drivin'' Cadillacs, Benzes and **** (I see you boy)
Stay strong *****
You know what I'm sayin'? (Go to school *****, go to school)
You could be a lawyer (really doe)
(Don't see Johnny Cochran out in this ************)
(sup *****) Especially my little cousins don't be no dumb guy
