The Streets

I'm trap in the streets so I let my black flag hang.

As I put my sign in the air damn right I bang.

But right now I'm in different struggle.

Cause I'm using my mind now I have a different hustle.

Still dodging bullets at least twice a week.

Yes I know that the streets is not always sweet.

Because to my enemies I'm just fresh meat.

That's why I live my life one step at a time.

Because I was seeing death ever sense the age of nine.

And yes I suffer many heart aches but not once have I cried.

Is it because I'm consume with pride.

Each day I speak words of wisdom cause I don't believe in lies.
