Down at the best spot
The spot's hot and everybody nervous
Oh why did fools had to let loose
Big Tom had to push us
For they gats so they could draw down
Not known why I dropped out
So now I gotta jet
Tryin' to see if we got him
Didn't panic but I still looked cracked out

On my way, to MLK
Where *****s die over a little scratch
In my back is where the bullet entered
***** still made me fill out the ****in' form
Then I heard "freeze ****** don't move"
Didn't want to go out like my man Rodney King
Internal bleeding as the bullet starts to travel
Being asked information on my gang affiliation
And I'm a victim of neighborhood crime
I need to see a MD
Look at the waiting room
Nobody gettin' help
The hospital move slow
People steppin' over me to get closer to the tv
Now will I die on this nappy *** carpet
Done watched two episodes of MASH
They call my name and put me on ICU
No respect and handcuffed to the bed
'Cause the bullet must be just a hair from my heart
Just to get looked at by an overworked physician
Only got a band-aid and an IV
Police steady askin' me who did the bustin'
Why oh why can't I get help
Too many black bodies the hospital housin'
