Boom bash dash, I had to break, I had to getaway
Kissed my mother, gave my pops a pound
I threw the duffelbag over my shoulder
Time to fend for myself jack
Stopped at the lye spot before I hit the train station
It took the last of my loot to make this move Troop
Plus my aunt's got a room that's for rent
So **** the bullshit I'm audi
I'm gonna make it god damnit
They never fake it just slam it

And all the spots in Beantown where *****z carry burners
So one cold morning, I left home
Or workin in a mail room Uptown, feelin sick and
I wasn't tryin to lose -- I refused
Sometimes all you need to get by, is a girlie
I seen a lot of ill **** on my block, happen nightly
And peace to my man Hass doin his bad
Stopped at the bookstands for somethin to read
and like the sayin goes, sometimes life ain't fair
So I stayed up late, to write some rhymes to some rhythms
But ****it I'll maintain, one day I'll be hittin
Out in B-R-double-O-K-Lyn, The Planet
There in B-R-O-O-K-Lyn, The Planet
And you can, walk the walk talk the talk but don't flaunt
but don't sweat it, cause that's the life out here
I got my own place in Bed-Stuy
Malcolm X Boulevard and Gates Avenue
Me and the *****z Troy and Squeaky
I used to build with the brothers by the spot
To get my haircut had to go to Fort Greene
Then to Fulton just to look around
and check a movie or some **** like that
I remember this one chick, she brought me a beeper
But then I stepped, cause I found out about her rep
But anyway I used to lay up in the crib
Saved my dough, stayed on the down low
And Lil' Dap used to come by strapped
Sometimes I used to miss my moms
But I'ma be aight still
I'm gonna make it god damnit
I never fake it just slam it
