It Ain't Easy

I take a shot of my liquor and inhale the weed now I think I'm strong
enough to face the madness
My partner got a pocket full of weed laced with hash
Just got a phone call from my niggas telling me that two of my childhood
friends just die
It’s a damn shame when will we ever change
Got a nine should I pull it or let my niggas die
They tell me to keep my faith in God and just trust him he will bring you
out of your troubles
But it ain't easy in this life of mines
Hiding from the cops and getting calls from my baby mama talking about
you need to pay the child support
My life is so stressful never easy don't have a family to go to when I'm
feeling lonely or need some attention
Short on money because of the damn economy and the days couldn't get
any worser for a black man
Cops harassing me because they think I'm a criminal with the hood over my
I pray to God everyday to get rid of my enemies because they're driving me
I know that my destination is hell
But I try everyday to live right and I have to do what I’m capable of doing
to survive in this world
Because it ain’t easy from selling dope to robbing banks I got to have this
money to pay the rent
Both of my buddies doing time in the pen
While my father left me at the age of twelve leaving me to be the man
And my mother wasn't any better sniffing up coke getting high everyday
leaving me *****to eat
And I know that’s petty but that’s how I was raise doing  *****on my own
thuggin on these streets
21Because its nothing left for me so don't mind me if you see me on the streets
Because I rather be dead then living this life of mines it ain't easy
