Once upon a time in the projects yo
I damn near had to wreck a ho
I knocked on the door "who is it?"
It's ice cube come to pay a little visit to ya
And what's up with the ******s in the parking lot
She said **** em cause they get sparked a lot
I sat on the couch but it wasn't stable
And then I put my Nike's on the coffee table
Her brother walked in he's into gang bangin'
Cause he walked up and said "what set you claimin'"
I don't bang I write the good rhymes
The whole scenery reminded me of good times
I hate to feel bad but I'm in a rut
By a young ***** that needs to pull his pants up
Her mother came in with a joint in her mouth
