in my city
lyrics

[Hook]

People die in, drive by in, people cry in, every day

In my city, in my city, in my city

People die in, drive by in, people cry in, every day

In my city, in my city, in my city

[Verse 1]

Look, they k**ing, they illing and ain't nobody chilling in here

Health care, Medicare, it's pretty rare

Welfare… hell yeah, that sh** is here

Blank stairs… the children tears

Section 8, … them ghetto benefits

The schools are closing down

Schools closing down cause kids ain't really into it

Murders and a**a**ins, cops known by aliases

City of the gods, n***as living like …

Oakland, Brooklyn, which one is the craziest

The shadiest, maybe it's cause the parents don't play with kids

Raised by the unraised…

Church say it's gonna get better one day

But hell, they only sing songs on Sunday

Cause Monday …to the gunplay

Living in the city of god, I guess we living like the song say

I guess we living like the song say

[Hook]

People die in, drive by in, people cry in, every day

In my city, in my city, in my city

People die in, drive by in, people cry in, every day

In my city, in my city, in my city

[Verse 2]

They hustle, they grind, and they… they struggle, they fighting

They muscle they weight to the top, no …no crying

They put the fire in the …

They writing, they focus, they know what they glowing they shining…

They ripping off your chain and tripping…

They throwing up flame, tipping and flipping and slanging

They claiming the blocks that don't owe a dime for them

They taking shots…so we writing for them

To make you stop for a second cause everyone heard

If I can give them a record …give one verse

…you can't make a prediction, the future's not written

Although I'm not a physician I try to stop and listen

It's like we got a condition

[Hook]

People die in, drive by in, people cry in, every day

In my city, in my city, in my city

People die in, drive by in, people cry in, every day

In my city, in my city, in my city

[Verse 3]

For you to call me a street n***a it's just an accusation

You're probably calculating…

Making money in the city I'm from, from grinding

Until they get us tired it's…

Our actions is affirmative, come get the affirmation

… not stopping until the whole block flooded like…

So they go out in the streets smart despite college

… n***as even … and go somewhere…

A bunch of slum dog millionaires…

[Hook]

People die in, drive by in, people cry in, every day

In my city, in my city, in my city

People die in, drive by in, people cry in, every day
