Born in the citi….raised by the street.
Looked up to the gankstas...down wit the beat.
HIP-HOPPIN', TRASH-TALKIN'...straight up STREETWIZE.
Never seein' the tears in your mother's eyes.
Circlin' the block like a bird of prey.
Got ya bank, ya brew and ya twenty-two.
Never suspecting TODAY'S VICTIM was gonna be...YOU!!
Little brotha, so young...so naïve.
Wish I could've known you,
wish I could've told somethin'...made you believe.
You could have been somebody,
done anything your mind conceived
Wanna-Be GANKSTA...HARD ROCK on the rize,
RAT-A-TAT-TAT, RAT- A-TAT-TAT...you're DEAD!!!!
Never...ever...seeing...the tears in your mother's eyes
