Joe Budden

"Young n*ggaz"

[*Joe Budden ad libs*]

[DJ On Point - talking over Joe Budden]
This sh*t right here in called Young n*ggas
Shout out to my n*gga Ron Browz on the beat
Whole Monie Ave, I see you


[Verse 1 - Joe Budden]
Yo, my struggle's a little different
Y'all n*ggas was selling, I was sniffin
Sike, rewind it, I'm just kiddin (OH!)
I was hangin with old heads, tryna put my bid in
Same safe you was stackin in, I was tryna get in
Y'all was f*ckin with pigeons (naw)
I was on Malcolm X, lookin for a jar for my cig to get dipped in (OH!)
Was still spittin, before the video vixens
Around the time Ewing had got dunked on by Pippen
n*ggas was still pitchin
I was stealin money from my moms anytime she left her purse in the kitchen (that was f*cked up)
Guzzlin a fifth and
I was high as a f*ck, OD'n on Visine, so my eyes wouldn't glisten (OH!)
Moms still b*tchin
She thought I knew better, but I didn't
She tried to talk to 'em, wouldn't listen (listen, wouldn't listen)
It's almost like somethin inside of me kept itchin
I thought the streets loved me, naw who was I kiddin? (kiddin)
God lookin like the devil (oh)
Sendin me to the pawn shop anytime I found sh*t that looked like metal
I dropped outta school, naw not to be cool
I was sittin there bored, thought all y'all was fools
f*ck I wanna read up on "Romeo & Juliet"
Way back, I ain't even have my first toolie yet
Angie ain't even make that knife go through me yet (talk to 'em)
Matter fact, I ain't even smoke my first woolie yet
Tried to have it wrapped, but things wasn't a doobie yet
What was comin for me, but naw it ain't subdue me yet

[Hook - Joe Budden]
Young n*ggas, know I used to be a young n*gga
I used to pop off to prove I ain't the one n*gga
B and E's, stick ups and dirty guns n*ggas
This before I finally had my little young n*gga
Young n*ggas, God keep me from these young n*ggas
Not the smart ones Lord, just the dumb n*ggas
Might have me thinkin I'm still one of them n*ggas
sh*t changed from when I used to be a young n*gga

[You know why his name is On Point, cause he On Point pus*y]

[Verse 2 - Joe Budden]
Yo, aiyyo
My first time locked up, I was a child
Met up with mad n*ggas I ain't seen in a while (yeah)
And it wasn't bad bein locked in with them (but)
But couldn't fathom lockin in at 10
Like f*ck readin a book, sat on my bunk, mad time to get my thoughts straight
One month, one shower, still without a court date
Just bags of nicotine, rollin paper
Did pull ups, push ups, how the f*ck'd I get here?
War stories, you hear a lot of sh*t here
Great place to visit, but naw don't wanna live here (live here ...)
Naw gotta get my mind in a new place
Grimy ass n*ggas stealin my socks and toothpaste
Can't ever remember feelin such neglect
But snakes get snaked (dog), what the f*ck'd I expect? (expect)
I thought if anything I had earned n*ggas respect
But n*ggas hung up soon as they heard "Collect"
Had my mag with the tits out
O.G.s said to me the streets don't love you, they'll be there when you get out
Bunch of the same people, still in the same space
A few of 'em'll die, a few will take your place
I prayed to God that I never catch another case
Cause CO's just treat us like we rats in a maze
You wonder why Joey always hype and smilin (why?)
I was this close to Rikers Island
Was bein on Rikers, wilin (wilin)
I've been through way worse sh*t than havin a few gripes bout my album (c'mon)

[Hook] - w/ ad libs

[DJ On Point - talking over Hook]
Shout out to mixtapekings.com
Can't forget my n*gga Moozoo, Victory Square

[Outro - Joe Budden - talking] (*echo*)
For real
God keep me from these little young n*ggas man
Cause I'll f*ck around and get a bid
Make me somethin stupid and sh*t
Made me resort to bein ..
Bein the old me and sh*t
I worked hard to get money
I ain't tryna go back
I ain't tryna go back to the hood, keep my eyes lit up
Keep me from these n*ggas, for real
