Crack

For every shell that fell there's a story to tell
They say you hustle then you goin' to hell
Nah, I know God love's me
Yeah, I know that He ****s with me

Can a gangster go to Heaven? Let me in
I call it survival, you call it a sin
Damn, I got a story to tell
Yeah, I got a story to tell

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm right here, gun in my right palm
*****s try and trap me and cage me like my san
Oh ****, this mic on? Speakin' my thoughts, *****
You catch a hundred if you speakin' in court

Yeah, I'm feelin' like Michael just before the verdict
Sweat on my forehead, I'm anxious and nervous
These streets'll eat you if you let 'em, cop'll beat you
You pumpin' Diesel then them jack boys'll beat you

I try and listen more and speak less
'Cause all that 'Barbershop' talk
Could get a ***** put to deep rest
You on the corner and I'm flyin' buy
Some foreign exotic muh'****er, you know we flyin' buy

Oh you got nine lives? I got a pine box
Might as well hop your *** in it 'cause my iron popped
And I ain't lyin', ask, yeah I'm lyin' hard
Run up on anybody that's supplyin' my block

For every shell that fell there's a story to tell
They say you hustle then you goin' to hell
Nah, I know God love's me
Yeah, I know that He ****s with me

Can a gangster go to Heaven? Let me in
I call it survival, you call it a sin
Damn, I got a story to tell
Yeah, I got a story to tell

I know this ***** named Shaheim, an old school cat
Did football numbers and never once rat
Now he back on the block, got him slingin' them packs
And his rep kinda crazy, known for slingin' them Macks

Got a baby with Sandra, he named him K-Sacks
'Cause that's where he did his first bid way back
Now this ***** Sha' got like a memory lapse
Basically you give him work and he ain't payin' back

Now with some connects, you could away with that
But he must of ****ed wit the wrong Columbian cats
Now these *****z comin' strapped and they want they money back
And you can't tell the difference 'cause some of them look black

Now Sha on the block thinkin' life's a joke
And his mama just had a dream that he might get smoked
But he don't give a ****, he been through the best wars
Knife to knife, the yard to the mess halls

And these *****z here got somethin' else in mind
Like a hundred shots fired at a pretzel less spine
Uh huh, you guessed it, just a matter of time
Another soldier down, he got hit with a nine, dang

For every shell that fell there's a story to tell
They say you hustle then you goin' to hell
Nah, I know God love's me
Yeah, I know that He ****s with me

Can a gangster go to Heaven? Let me in
I call it survival, you call it a sin
Damn, I got a story to tell
Yeah, I got a story to tell

Nah, I ain't a rapper, ********** rap
They snitched on Kim, how lame is that
This game ain't **** but snakes and rats
Fightin' each other for loose change and scraps

My ***** kicked you right on your back when you down
No life preservers, they wanna see you drown
I pull the trigger myself, I don't want no help
Now the only ***** tell on myself is myself

'Money, Power, Respect', you heard 'The LOX'
Half these *****z in here popped deserve to get robbed
I think we need another ****in' Biggy and Pac
So you muh'****ers can have another Million Man March

For every shell that fell there's a story to tell
They say you hustle then you goin' to hell
Nah, I know God love's me
Yeah, I know that He ****s with me

Can a gangster go to Heaven? Let me in
I call it survival, you call it a sin
Damn, I got a story to tell
Yeah, I got a story to tell
