Things done changed

"Remember back in the days, when niggaz had waves
Gazelle shades, and corn braids
Pitchin' pennies, honies had the high top jellies
Shootin' skelly, motherfuckers was all friendly
Loungin' at the barbeques, drinkin' brews
With the neighborhood crews, hangin' on the avenues
Turn your pages, to nineteen ninety three
Niggaz is gettin' smoked g, believe me.
Talk slick, you get your neck slit quick
Cause real street niggaz ain't havin' that shit
Totin' techs for rep, smokin' blunts in the project
Hallways, shootin' dice all day
Wait for niggaz to step up on some fightin' shit
We get hype and shit and start lifin' shit
So step away with your fist fight ways
Motherfucker this ain't back in the days, but you don't hear me though.

No more cocoa leave-io, one two three
One two three, all of this to me, is a mystery
I hear you motherfuckers talk about it
But I stay seein' bodies with the motherfuckin' chalk around it
And I'm down with the shit too
For the stupid motherfuckers wanna try to use kung-fu
Instead of a mac-10 he tried scrappin'
Slugs in his back and, thats what the fuck happens
When you sleep on the street
Little motherfuckers with heat, wanna leave a nigga six feet deep
And we comin' to the wake
To make sure the cryin' and commotion ain't a motherfuckin' fake
Back in the days, our parents used to take care of us
Look at 'em now, they even fuckin' scared of us
Callin' the city for help because they can't maintain
Damn, shit done changed.

If I wasnt in the rap game
I'd probably have a key knee deep in the crack game
Because the streets is a short stop
Either youre slingin' crack rock or you got a wicked jumpshot
Shit, its hard being young from the slums
Eatin' five cent gums not knowing where your meals comin' from
And now the shits gettin' crazier and major
Kids younger than me, they got the sky grand pagers
Going outta town, blowin' up
Six months later all the dead bodies showin' up
It make me wanna grab the nine and the shottie
But I gotta go identify the body.
Damn, what happened to the summertime cookouts?
Everytime I turn around a nigga gettin' took out
Shit, my momma got cancer in her breast
Dont ask me why I'm motherfuckin' stressed, things done changed."
