Nineteen seventy somethin' ***** I don't sweat the date
Out the skins in this world of fly girls
Ten months in this gut what the ****
wild juvenile rippin' mics and ****
Then came the worst date May 21st
No spouse in the house so she rode for self
Umbilical cord's wrapped around my neck
I made it out, I'm bringin' mad joy

On the drug scene, **** a football team
Hearin' the coach scream at my lifetime dream, I mean
So school I didn't show up, it ****ed my flow up
before I wreck myself, disrespect myself
Scarface, King of New York, I want to be it
Until I got incarcerated--kinda scary
Not able to move behind the great steel gate
All the money I stacked was all the money for bail
Ninety-four, now I explore new horizons
Honey's is tantalizin', they freak all night
As I open my eyes and realizin' I changed
And to my *****s livin' street life
Still tote your vest man, *****s be trippin'
If I'm pimpin on The F with weed on my breath
Respect to the Mac's and the Ac's
