I once knew a ***** whose real name was William
Being the illest hustler, that the world ever seen
A corrupted young mind, at the age of thirteen
She put the pipe down, but every year she was sober
He started hanging out selling bags in the projects
He was fascinated by material objects
He build a reputation 'cause he could hustle and steal
So criminals he chilled with didn't think he was real
I don't project my insecurities at other people
So he felt he had to prove to everyone he was evil
The product of a ghetto breed capitalistic mental
Dancing with the devil, smoked until his eyes would bleed

You probably only did a month for minor offenses
But then again there's always the wicked that knew in advance
But that's what happens when you rape, murder and sell rock
There's no diversity because we're burning in the melting pot
So Billy started robbing *****s, anything he could do
Starting fights over little ****, up on the block
Working overtime for making money for the crack spot
fulfilling the Scarface fantasy stuck in his brain
He wanted to be major like the cut throats and the thugs
They told him any **********ing coward can sell drugs
Any ***** with a red shirt can front like a blood
But only a real thug can stab someone till they die
Billy realized that these men were well guarded
Suggested raping a ***** to prove he was cold hearted
Or making money with made men, up in the cyph'
A hardcore ***** is all he ever wanted to be

You probably only did a month for minor offenses
But then again there's always the wicked that knew in advance
But that's what happens when you rape, murder and sell rock
There's no diversity because we're burning in the melting pot
They drove around the projects slow while it was raining
Until they saw a woman on the street walking alone
And so they quietly got out the car and followed her
They wrapped her shirt around her head and knocked her onto the floor
So Billy oaked her up and grabbed the chick by the hair
She struggled hard but they forced her to go up the stairs
Screaming shut the **** up and stop moving around
So Billy stomped on the *****, until he had broken her jaw
They kicked her until they cracked her ribs and she stopped moving
And then they all proceeded to rape her violently
Ripping her up, and choking her until her throat burned
When they were done and she was lying bloody, broken and bruised
They told him that she was a witness of what she'd gone through
He thought about it for a minute, she was practically dead

I'm falling and I can't turn back
Right before he pulled the trigger, and ended her life
And he felt strong standing along with his new brothers
But what he saw made him start to cringe and stutter
She looked back at him and cried, cause he had forsaken her
His whole world stopped, he couldn't even contemplate
And he remembered how his mom used to come home late
He turned away from the woman that had once given him birth
But only the devil responded, cause god wasn't there
And so he jumped off the roof and died with no soul
After that they killed his mother, and never spoke about it
Cause I was there with Billy Jacobs and I raped his mom too
In fact I'm sure he's standing among one of you at my shows
He could be standing right next to you, and you wouldn't know
White, brown, yellow and black colored is not restricted
And you'll be one of gods children and fell from the top
So when the devil wants to dance with you, you better say never
