money is mandatory my game is self explanitory

i hit the blunt as i proceed to tell my ghetto stories

i'm into deep all my peeps bring them shovel stories

some n****z strapped with thier gats tryin to kill your homez

didn't know me but met the heat when they ran up on me

left his wife and 2 kids at the crib lonely

got in the way of a stray bullet when i pass

tryin to retaliate but keep that happin in the past

ways of the world how will i last when the economy crash

i'm goin all out gettin my cash

while spend mine open wit my eyes on the world

ghettos and jail cells gave me stories to tell

body swells from the evil smells that i inhale

evil set me up to fail make my life so real

people tape will caution times being lost my soul series to scar

i'm fighting off demons it's the ways of the world

.

even though it hurts chest

i'm gonna stroke till i lose my breath

lookin to sin since life began

coming all the way out the water to get oxygen

please father help me breathe again at ease again

.

looking at my self in the mirror i took a second to think

memories of bein babies given milk to drink

without a worry at mind we would play all the time

they ain't callin it but b ball took up most of my time

we were hard headed they all said it

from my parents to our teachers and even my preacher

i say my prayers i gave my momma grey hairs

she lives in fear

the thought of me not being there got her worried scared

they say i look just like my father without the beard

they should have named that n**** magic and dissapear

a couple months out of the year he reappears

its all the same ain't nuttin changed you still my n****

don't hold a grudge just give me love i'm on my own

i'm kinda sober from a broken home

wondering what's goin on did i deserve this

living in atlanta got this little nigga nervous

mama tried to feed us all until she got laid off

had the rats paid off now we all laid off

.

duckin the gun shots at the age of 13

there was a war zone so you choose your team

when the war strikes you better have a heart to fight

or get lost in the world when you loose your life

i would like to get blown so i read and pray

surviving day to day running the streets of stray

living all my self no company

you better meet the heat when you come for me

and when i die burn alive that's a wish of mine

i know that heaving in the zone ain't that hard to find

and when you make it they gone take it that's a must you know

don't think of gettin to the top without a problem or so

i take for caution as for evil gotta hit on me

i've been a bad boy for momma dont you quit on me

they built a jail so when we rise they can crush our dreams

two of the largest in the industry erased from the scene

and i don't wanna be a target so i got with a team

they got a glow around their body and do shit you've never seen

know what i mean?

take it deep like summer eves that's what we do only humans

tryin to get through the world with no confusion

when you close your eyes can you state the pain the misery

bringin for you will rescue me

these are the ways of the world

now i have to choose between life or lose my sanity

go with the streets keep callin me

these are the ways of the world
