THE REAL STORY LISTEN, SOME THINK I’M CRAZI OTHERS THINK I’M SCARED, BUT MY FEARS ARE REAL & I DON’T SHED NO TEARS. ALL I DO IS WRITE, ITS THE WAY I SHARE MY STORY, BEING TESTED AND TRIED AND STUMBLING OVER GLORY. I’M IN A BAD SITUATION, I’M ON A PERMANENT VACATION, I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I WOULD HEAR NATURAL LIFE IS WHAT YOU’RE FACING. COULD IT BE A BAD DREAM, I WAS ONLY 17, HAVE YOU SEEN WHAT PRISON BRINGS AND ALL THINGS IN BETWEEN? BUT I KNOW GOD HAS A PLAN, SO I’M A PUT IT ALL IN HIS HAND HE TOLD ME TO STAND UP, BE A MAN AND ONE DAY YOU’LL UNDERSTAND. THIS IS SOME GARBAGE, SOMEBODY GOTS TO HELP ME OUT, I CALLED MY DAD, HE’S SAD & ALL HE DID WAS SHOUT I HUNG UP THE PHONE NEVER TO SPEAK TO HIM AGAIN, NOW I’M MORE THAN JUST MAD, I FEEL I JUST CAN’T WIN. I WANT TO CALL MY MOM, SHE CAN BRING ROUGH OCEANS TO A CALM, WE TALKING ABOUT DEALS & SHE SAID 25 YEARS AIN’T THAT LONG.
SO WITH MY BACK AGAINST THE WALL, I GAVE HER THIS PSALM, I GUESS YOU FORGOT, YOU REALLY DON’T KNOW YOUR SON BECAUSE I HAVE WONDERED THE STREETS WITH CROOKS AND BUMS, SLEPT IN A BUSH & WRESTLED WITH BIRDS FOR THE LAST FEW CRUMBS. I CAN’T QUIT, LOSE, CHOOSE, GIVE IN OR SLIGHTLY BEND, I’M MARRIED TO THE GAME & HANDCUFFED TO MY FRIENDS. SO FOR BETTER OR WORSE, WE CHOSE TO DO DIRT, SELLING CRACK WAS BAD, BUT NOBODY EVER COT HURT. I’M SIMPLY A THUG MAMA & I GOT TO PLAY THE PART, LIVING 17 YEARS WAS HARD & THEM 25 I JUST CAN’T START. I’M ROUGH & I’M RUGGED AND I’LL FIGHT UNTIL THE END, THE JURY HAS SPOKEN, GUILTY & SENTENCED TO DIE WITH HIS FRIENDS. THIS CAN’T BE RIGHT, MY LIFE & LEGACY IS ON THE LINE. YOU REMEMBER ME, I WRESTLED & PLAYED FOOTBALL, CLASS OF 1995 I’M THE ONE WHO WAS SILLY, ALWAYS HAVING A BLAST, NOW THE JOKE IS ON ME, BUT I CAN’T REMOVE MY MASK. NOW AFTER YEARS IN PRISON & LOSING MY LIFE WHEN I WAS IN HIGH SCHOOL, ALL MY FRIENDS ARE GONE & ONLY MY MAMA THINKS I’M COOL. BUT WHEN YOU’RE YOUNG, YOU FIGURE YOU KNOW IT ALL, I THOUGHT FRIENDS THROUGH THICK & THIN, BUT NOW ONLY MY FAMILY ACCEPT MY CALL.
