Live Long

BRIDGE

 

Heard the thugs they don't live long, don't live long

Heard the killas they don't live long, don't live long

Heard the thugs they don't live long, don't live long

Heard the killas they don't live long, don't live long

 

 

HOOK

 

And I know how we live is wrong

But fuck that nigga just stay strapped

Alot of times we kill our own

But sometimes it's just payback 

For the beef niggas peel that chrome

In the streets niggas feel at home

Young nigga but jit act grown

Thug niggas don't live that long

 

 

VERSE 1

 

In the city where the beef don't die

Don't be the nigga that don't keep no fire

Enemies know it be on sight

Every nigga feel like please come try

Just know whatever you be on, niggas be on

When G'z collide

Just know nigga, we gon' slide

I just hope it never be yo side

Caught a case gotta touch yo' stacks

Police just rushed yo' trap

Niggas you call real straight rats

How much time they just gave back 

Fuck around with the people they love

It's homicide when they bust they gats

Don't act like niggas killing just for fun

It's hard enough tryna just stay black

That's life when you living just for crumbs

Fast life niggas went and got the funds

That's right, niggas made the money 

Saying fuck them crackas

Then they gave it back to them 

And damn right i'm tryna save them youngins

But they hustling backwards

Can't teach, can't rap to them 

They can't see that the streets is a trap for them 

New slaves in a cage in a maximum

And the babies see us living wrong

So they getting grown

Ain't no chance that we could get along

Once the pistols drawn

My dawg be saying fuck the other side 

It's up and stuck for life

But I can't blame him if he love to slide

Because his brother died

VERSE 2

 

And you know when the hammers blow

We slanging that K when it's time to go handle smoke

Cuz niggas don't dance no mo'

Niggas don't fade or throw no hands no mo'

Still on this damn parole

If I get jammed then it's back to the can I go 

But I can't let the bands get low

So you ain't gotta ask why i'm taking them chances fo'

Single mom can't stand alone

Dad been gone and it ain't no man home

To lead by example so, 

Now lil man gotta learn to be a man on his own

Looking at how we living

Looking at why, it's because of our decisions

Look at that time they giving

The judge just said that my nigga finna die in prison

My other dawg got shot in the head

In front of his daughter too

I could tell from the look in his eyes on the hospital bed

Some bodies gon' pop up dead

And it ain't no stopping em' too

But tell me what y'all would do

When you live where the gangstas at

Used to bring fire to school 

Nigga might die in school

I remember thinking that 

Lil nigga with the biggest fire and it's the dirtiest

Every time a killer cry it be murder tears

Jit know he ain't getting out cuz this his 3rd offense

They gave that nigga life plus another 30 years

VERSE 3

 

Just from everything I know, about the streets

It's best to never leave yo' home, without yo heat

Only seventeen years old, and about the beef

But the choppa bullets left his dome, without his feet

Just cuz he was stepping wrong, the pressure's on

He died with his weapon on em, lesson known

Three time convicted felon, record long 

He beat the time cuz he started telling, they let em home

Nigga how you ride then send the cops, kinda shit is that

And I know why they call it a trap, cuz it's a trap

But no lie man this shit don't stop, and that's a fact

When the other side get to sending shots, gotta send it back
