"Welcome to the Ghetto (Remix)"

Welcome to the ghetto

[Verse 1]
Livin day by day in my hood on the spot
See the same old things: same dope fiends cops
Just an average day in the streets of California
5-0 find a young girl dead around the corner
Mommies on her knees she had tears in her eyes
And nobody knew why the young girl had to die
People look ashamed it's been life this fo years
Bloody sheets on her body face wet from her mama's tears
She couldn'ta been over 4-5
And if mommy wasn't based she would still be alive
But now the street is a place you could be swallowed by death
Brothas takin each other's lives
And goin to REST IN PEACE
I wonder if heaven got a ghetto
My cousin died last year
And I still can't let go
I walk the streets of my city of my neighborhood
Seein dope fiends livin off can goods
15 n*ggas on the corner
And n*ggas die young in California
5-0'll get a dope case and flaunt it
Have your ass on "America's Most Wanted"
But I don't slang or either gang-bang
And though my old school homies do the same thang
I still got love cause you gotta live
So you can give
And raise a family G
But you gotta do your best slangin D-O-P-E
So keep a grip on yourself and stay mellow
And welcome to the ghetto
(welcome hard up with it to my life) ??

[Chorus: repeat 4X]
Welcome to the ghetto
(welcome hard up with it to my life)

[Verse 2]
From across the seas comes cocaine
But you never seen a black man fly the plane
Look at the news:a young black death
Was it drug related,take a guess
I flash when I look in the mirror black
Cause my reflection is a 9 millimeter Gat
I think about genocide
And have thoughts of my homies who died
Everybody backstabbin
But I ain't the one to talk I'm into gafflin
Death gives a sh*t about your color
But yet I see mo dead young brothas
I'm goin crazy out here
Seein 24 brothas die by the end of the year
And I still gotta deal with the 5-0
And I stopped sellin dope in 9-0
But if I came to it
I probably still do it
Put a Nine in my draws get straight to it
I hope that I never see the day
That I get 20 years for a cake
B-K-A as a key
So open up the door for the mo money
But I ain't gotta do that G
Cause I'm down with the F-A to the C to the U to the L-T-Y
G-nut X-tra Large and S-P-I-C-E make n*ggas feel like jello
And welcome to the ghetto
(Welcome hard up with it to my life)


[Verse 3]
Ain't no justice it's just us
And every brother with the guts lust to bust
At the police 'cause we can't get peace
Sending troops to the ghetto like the Middle East
My homie on the block got beat down
And he never sold a ounce, a key, a pound
Suicide was the notion
Sometimes I wanna run and dive in the ocean
But killing myself ain't the answer
'Cause the problems of the world need a cure like cancer
And everybody sees the problem but the President
But he ain't living in the ghetto so it's evident
I quit pulling over for the police
'Cause they beat Rodney King like a savage beast
Now my brothers on the block think it's Glock time
Open up season on cop time
So welcome to the ghetto
Where you straight get played out like a cello
The Mayor got the projects boarded up
And the whites and the blacks are sorted up
My people living in poverty
And every time I wanna max I'm on somebody property
Make me wanna get the gat too
And peel a cap too
But I ain't down for the tattoo--tears
Spending years in the P-E-N
And I'm just another brother in the wind
No love in the ghetto see
1-87 thousand G....

Welcome to the Ghetto!
