Gang Related Lyrics

[Verse 1:]
Yeah, Uh
Yeah, livin’ life like this
Gotta paint a picture when I write like this
Tales from my hood, not a sight like this

Where they up to no good on a night like this
And they murder motherfuckers just ’cause
Type of shit I see, you probably wonder where I was
I was in the crib, just sitting on the rug

Basedheads coming through looking for the plug
Now, born and raised in my area
Beautiful by day, by night it’s hysteria
Fuck around and bury ya tonight

Ridin’ with my homies on sight
Momma tell me to come in at night
Now I really gotta go, but they never know
Living life to the fullest, I gotta blow

Po-po finna bust in the door, we got blow in the crib
In the kitchen over there next to the baby with the bib
God damn, what it feel like, middle of the night
Waking up, scared for my life

Never had the heat, just a knife
When the gat go blat like that
Guarantee you it’s a wrap
Finna put you on your back like that

Just breathe, while their mama grieve
Bullet to the dome like an Aleve
Gotta leave for the premises, to murder my nemesis
No, no, uh, uh, just stop, stop, stop

‘Fore they even call the cops
Do it for the money and the bitches
And the drugs and the props
Tell me why another body even gotta drop
Get shot off top for some shit that was gang related

[Verse 2:]
Living life like this
Hope little Bobby never fight like this
Stab a motherfucker with a knife like this
All about the money on a night like this

Run up in the crib, put a bullet in your rib
Got a lot to give, but I never had the chance
Never had the chance, yeah
Stay strapped, but I hate it when I take it out

If you want it I’ma lay it out
Hope my little brother make it out
Every night what I pray about what I pray about
Check it, uh yeah, got a son on the way

But I cling to the streets even though I wanna run away
I imagine a better life
Where I never had a debt in life
Hit you with the [gunshots] in the dead of night

Selling crack to my own pops
Pushing this weight on my own block
If I sell a brick I can buy a house
If they find the key they might lock me up

But I take the chance
‘Cause I need that shit and don’t give a fuck
Take the chance, ’cause I need that shit and don’t give a fuck

[Outro:]
Get down or lay down
Hit ya with the Beretta, you better stay down
Stray shots on the playground
Living how I’m living with the life that I’m given

Anybody that’s riding with me, I’m riding with ’em
Show me the enemy, and I’ma hit ’em
The second I bit ’em, I get ’em
And hit ’em with the venom

Ain’t no need to pretend I’ma never do it
I knew it, already been through it
I do it for the street, for the fam, for the life
Anybody that’s gang related
