u and your friends
r just like kids
hoping to be the
local celebrity
buggin' out in clubs
smokin' on bud
showin' only money love
callin' me out my name
in hope of some type of fame
that would make u thug of the year
or maybe playa of the month
but it's all a front
'cause for real u ain't tough
pick up a book
 find a 9 to 5
try livin' right
go thru a night
without hittin' licks
or doing some dumb sh*t
try being a MAN
and if that's too hard
try being real
and see if u like the feel
or find a thrill
in being a good Black Man
