As I get a little older 

I realize life is perspective 

And my perspective may differ from yours 

I wanna say thank you to everyone that’s been down with me 

For all my fans, all my beautiful fans 

Anyone who’s ever gave me a listen 

All my people 


I come from a generation of pain where murder is minor 

Rebellious and Margielas will trip you for designer 

Belt buckles and clout, overzealous and prone to violence 

Make the wrong turn, be a wheel of the wheel alignment 

Residue burn, miss that in inner city 

Miscommunication to keep hommo’ detective busy 

No protection is risky 

Desensitized, I vandalized pain, covered up in camouflage 

Get used to hearing arsenal rain 

Analyze, what’s your life take to charge? 

Homies that fucked your baby mama once you hit the yard, that’s culture 

23-hour lockdown that somebody caused 

Said your little nephew was shot down, the culture’s involved 

I done seen n****s do 17, hit the halfway house 

Get out and get his brains blown out, looking to buy some weed 

Car wash is played out, new GoFundMe accounts, proceed 

A brand new victim, shatter those dreams, the culture 



But I want you to want to want me too (Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah-oh-ah-oh) 

I want the hood 

Come on me, baby (Ah-oh-ah-oh-ah-oh-ah-oh) 

I want the hood (Look what all I done for you) 

Look what I done for you 

Look what I done for you 


I said I do this for my culture 

To let you know what a n***a look like in a bulletproof Rover 

In my mama’s sofa was a doo-doo poppa 

Head trigger, walk up closer, ain’t no Photo-Shopping 

Friends bipolar, grab you by your pockets 

No option if you froze up, always play the offense 

N****s going to work and selling work, late for work 

Working late, praying for work but he don’t pay for work 

That’s the culture, point the finger, promote you 

Remote location, witness protection, they gonna hold you’ 

The streets got me fucked up, y’all can miss me 

I wanna represent for us 

New revolution was up and moving 

I’m in Argentina wiping my tears full of confusion, water in between us 

Another peer’s been executed, history repeats again 

Make amends then find a n***a with the same skin to do it 

But that’s the culture, crack a bottle 

Hard to deal with the pain when you sober 

By tomorrow we forget the remains, we start over 

That’s the problem, our foundation was trained to accept whatever follows 

Dehumanize, insensitive, scrutinize the way we live for you and I 

Enemy shook my hand, I could promise I meet you 

In a land where no equal is your equal, never said I ain’t told you (Nah) 

In the land where hurt people hurt more people, fuck calling it culture 



Celebrate new life when it come back around 

The purpose is in the lessons we learning now 

Sacrifice personal gain over everything 

Just to see the next generation better than ours 

I wasn’t perfect, the skin I was in had truly suffered 

Temptation and patience everything that the body nurtures 

I felt the good, I felt the bad and I felt the worry 

But all in all my productivity had stayed urgent 

Face your fears, always knew that I would make it here 

Where the energy is magnified and persevered 

Consciousness is synchronized and crystal clear 

Euphoria is glorified and made His 

Reflecting on my life and what I done 

Paid dues, made rules, changed outta love 

Them same views made schools change curriculums 

But didn’t change me staring down the barrel of that gun 

Shit, I feel resentful, had to see my full potential 

Shit, I feel regret about the good that I was into 

Everything is everything, this ain’t coincidental 

I wake up that morning with more heart to give you 

As I bleed through the speakers, feel my presence 

To my brother, to my kids, I’m in Heaven 

To my mother, to my sis, I’m in Heaven 

To my father, to my wife, I am serious, this is Heaven 

To my friends, make sure you counting them blessings 

To my fans, make sure you make them investments 

And to the killer that sped up my demise 

I forgive you, just know that your soul is in question 

I seen the pain in your pupil when that trigger had squeezed 

And though you did me gruesome, I was surely relieved 

I completed my mission, wasn’t ready to leave 

But fulfilled my days, my Creator was pleased 

I can’t stress how I love y’all 

I don’t need to be in flesh just to hug y’all 

The memories recollect just because y’all 

Celebrate me with respect 

The unity we protect is above all 

And Sam, I’ll be watchinng over you 

Make sure my kids watch all my interviews 

Make sure you live all the dreams we produce 

Keep that genius in your brain on the move 

And to my neighborhood, let the good prevail 

Make sure them babies and their leaders outta jail 

Look for salvation when troubles get real 

‘Cause you can’t help the world until you help yourself 

And I can’t blame the hood the day that I was killed 

Y’all had to see it, that’s the only way to feel 

And though my physical won’t reap the benefits 

The energy that carries on emits still 

I want you
