growing up in the hood ant no way to live
Bang Bang Bang
three shots
wonder who dat is
the only thing I'm guessing is
dat hes dead
wondering around find a park
three little kids playing wit needles
wonder why day ant in school
walking the hallways
"what up fool" day say throwing sings
they call me a fool they only in grade school
wonder da streets hearing i'm from the hood
i walk up and ask
where you from
where your colors
one day i finely get my answer we ant got no colors
as i walk away i shook my head
where i come from they would be dead
