[Verse 1]I'm from the land of the gang bangSince I was little, ain't a god damn thang changedIt's the same ol sameBush run shit like Sadaam HussienI cock and aim, clinically insaneTo deal with this bullshit day to dayIf I sell some yay or smoke some hayYou bitches wanna throw me up in pelican's bayCall me an animal up in the systemBut who's the animal that built this prisonWho's the animal that invented lower livingThe projects, thank god for Russell SimmonsThank god for SugarhillI'm putting a different kind of steel up to my grillY'all know what it is, scared for your own kidsHow these ghetto niggaz taken over showbiz
[Verse 2]It's boyz in the hood, it's toys in the hoodY'all wanna know why there's noise in the hoodCause there's drugs in the hood, thugs in the hoodNigga killed a crip and a blood in the hood (For real)Cause when niggaz get tribalIt's all about survival, nobody liableI got caught by five-ohGrandmama came to court with her bibleBut when the judge hit the gavelNow I'm too far from my family to travel (Fuck)I just came unraveledSocked the D.A. before I got gaffledOwned by C.A, State PropertyJust like the year fifteen fifty threeLooking for me, a one-way ticket outDon't understand, what's so hard to figure out?
[Verse 3](Damn) I can't take the pressurePulled the fo-fo up out the dresserGrabbed the weight up out the closetPo-po coming but I'm scared to toss itY'all know what happened last time I lost itCan't tell you niggaz what the fuckin boss didThe game got a nigga exhaustedGotta go for the plea bargain they offeredTwenty years for what?Breaking these laws that's so corruptTaking these halls and fillin 'em upSome powder cake shit that's about to eruptAy y'all, I'm about to be stuckUntil the year two thousand, what the fuck?In the hood, don't press your luckCause these motherfuckers will set you up, word up
