    .Should I blast myself?"
  • I'm tired of bein' poor and even worse I'm black/My stomach hurts, so I'm lookin' for a purse to snatch
  • Cops give a damn about a negro/pull the trigger kill a nigga, he's a hero
  • Give the crack to the kids who the hell cares/one less hungry mouth on the welfare
  • First ship 'em dope & let 'em deal the brothers/give 'em guns step back watch 'em kill each other
  • It's time to fight back, that's what Huey said, 2 shots in the dark, now Huey's dead.
  • I got love for my brother but we can never go nowhere/unless we share with each other
  • We gotta start makin' changes/learn to see me as a brother instead of 2 distant strangers/and that's how it's supposed to be/How can another take a brother if he's close to me?
  • I see no changes all I see is racist faces/misplaced hate makes disgrace to races
  • We under I wonder what it takes to make this/one better place, let's erase the wasted
  • Take the evil out the people they'll be acting right/'cause both black and white is smokin' crack tonight
  • And although it seems heaven sent/We ain't ready, to see a black President
  • It ain't a secret don't conceal the fact/the penitentiary's packed, and it's filled with blacks
  • But some things will never change/try to show another way but you stayin' in the dope game
  • And still I see no changes can't a brother get a little peace/It's war on the streets & the war in the Middle East/Instead of war on poverty they got a war on drugs/so the police can bother me
  • We gotta make a change.^ My respect for you is now even broader.

  • Perhaps I was blind to the facts, stabbed in the back/I couldn't trust my own homies just a bunch a dirty rats
  • Will I succeed paranoid from the weed/And hocus pocus try to focus but I can't see
  • Look to my future cause my past, is all behind me/Is it a crime, to fight, for what is mine?/Everybody's dyin tell me what's the use of tryin
  • I've been Trapped since birth, cautious, cause I'm cursed/And fantasies of my family, in a hearse
  • And they say it's the white man I should fear/But, it's my own kind doin all the killin here
  • Oh my Lord, tell me what I'm livin for/Everybody's droppin got me knockin on heaven's door
  • And all my memories, of seein brothers bleed/And everybody grieves, but still nobody sees
  • Recollect your thoughts don't get caught up in the mix/Cause the media is full of dirty tricks
  • I hear the doctor standing over me screamin I can make it/Got a body full of bullet holes layin here naked
  • Still I, can't breathe, somethings evil in my IV/Cause everytime I breathe, I think they killin me
  • I'm having nightmares, homicidal fantansies/I wake up stranglin, danglin my bed sheets/I call the nurse cause it hurts, to reminisce/How did it come to this?^ "Tell me, will my enemies flee when they see me."

  • Somebody help me, tell me where to go from here/Cause even Thugs cry, but do the Lord care?
  • I'd rather die like a man, than live like a coward/There's a ghetto up in Heaven and it's ours, Black Power is what we scream as we dream in a paranoid state/And our fate, is a lifetime of hate
  • Dear Mama, can you save me?
  • No more hesitation each and every black male's trapped/And they wonder why we suicidal runnin round strapped/Mista, Po-lice, please try to see that it's a million motherfuckers stressin just like me

  • And they say it's the white man I should fear, but it's my own kind doing all the killing here

  • Collect calls to the till, sayin how ya changed/Oh you a Muslim now, no more dope game/Heard you might be comin home, just got bail/Wanna go to the Mosque, don't wanna chase tail
  • I seems I lost my little homie he's a changed man/Hit the pen and now no sinnin is the game plan
  • Now the whole shit's changed, and we don't even kick it/Got a big money scheme, and you ain't even with it
  • knew in my heart you was the same motherfucker bad/Go toe to toe when it's time for roll you got a brother's back
  • I kiss my Mama goodbye, and wipe the tears from her lonely eyes/Said I'll return but I gotta fight the fate's arrived/Don't shed a tear, cause Mama I ain't happy here/I'm through trial, no more smiles, for a couple years
  • They got me goin mad, I'm knockin busters on they backs/in my cell, thinkin, "Hell, I know one day I'll be back"
  • So many tried to plot/That I keep a glock beside my head, when will it stop?
  • Til God return me to my essence/Cause even as a adolescents, I refuse to be a convalescent
  • So many questions, and they ask me if I'm still down/I moved up out of the ghetto, so I ain't real now?/They got so much to say, but I'm just laughin at cha
—"I Ain't Mad At Cha" video version released a few days after Tupac's death (9/13/96)"
  • Father forgive us for livin while all my homies stuck in prison/Barely breatin believin that the world is a prison
  • It's like a ghetto we can never leave/A broken rose givin bloom to the cracks of the concrete
  • So many other things for us to see/Things to be, our history so full of tragedy and misery
  • To all my homies never made it home/The dead peers I shed tattoo tears for, when I'm alone
  • Picture us inside a ghetto heaven, a place to rest/Findin peace through this land of stress
  • In my chest I feel pain comin sudden storms/Life full of rain in this game watch for landstorms
  • Our unborn never got to grow, never got to see what's next/In this world full of countless threats

    Here's a word to those that robbed me/I murder you then I, run a train on Mobb Deep!
  • Don't f**k with me Nigga you're barely livin, don't you got sickle cell?/See me have a seizure on stage, you ain't feelin well, hell
  • How many niggaz wanna be involved?/See I was only talkin to Biggie, but I'll kill all o' y'all, then ball
  • Then tell Da Brat to keep her mouth closed/F**k around and get tossed up, by the f**kin Outlawz
  • Before I leave, make sure everybody HEARD/Know I meant, EVERY MOTHERF**KIN WORD When we ride on our enemies
—"Thug Mansion"
  • I once contemplated suicide, and woulda tried/But when I held that 9, all I could see was my momma's eyes
  • Where do niggaz go when we die?/Ain't no heaven for a thug nigga/That's why we go to thug mansion/That's the only place where thugs get in free and you gotta be a G
  • Picture me inside the misery of poverty/No man alive has ever witnessed struggles I survived/Prayin hard for better days, promise to hold on/Me and my dawgs ain't have a choice but to roll on
  • We found a family spot to kick it/Where we can drink liquor and no one bickers over trick shit/A spot where we can smoke in peace, and even though we G's/We still visualize places, that we can roll in peace/And in my mind's eye I see this place, the players go in fast/I got a spot for us all, so we can ball, at thug's mansion
  • Nobody cares, seen the politicians ban us/They'd rather see us locked in chains, please explain/why they can't stand us, is there a way for me to change?/Or am I just a victim of things I did to maintain?/I need a place to rest my head/with the little bit of homeboys that remains, cause all the rest dead
  • I need a house that's full of love when I need to escape/the deadly places slingin drugs, in thug's mansion
  • Just think of all the people that you knew in the past/that passed on, they in heaven, found peace at last
  • Picture a place that they exist, together/There has to be a place better than this, in heaven/So right before I sleep, dear God, what I'm askin/Remember this face, save me a place, in thug's mansion
—"Trapped"
  • You know they got me trapped in this prison of seclusion/Happiness, living on tha streets is a delusion
  • Even a smooth criminal one day must get caught/Shot up or shot down with tha bullet that he bought
  • Nine millimeter kickin' thinking about what tha streets do to me/Cause they never talk peace in tha black community
  • All we know is violence, do tha job in silence/Walk tha city streets like a rat pack of tyrants
  • Too many brothers daily heading for tha big penn/Niggas commin' out worse off/than when they went in
  • There must be another route, way out/To money and fame, I changed my name/And played a different game
  • Tired of being trapped in this vicious cycle/If one more cop harrasses me I just might go psycho
  • Thoughts in my mind was tha nine and a better life/What do I do?/Live my life in a prison cell?/I'd rather die than be trapped in a living hell
—"Hit 'Em Up"
.
  • Grab your glocks when you see 2Pac / Call the cops when you see 2Pac, Uhh / Who shot me, but your punks didn't finish / Now, you 'bout to feel the wrath of a menace
  • First off, fuck your bitch/And the click you claim/West side when we ride/Come equipped with game

  • Don't let the west side/Ride the night (ha ha)/Bad Boys murdered on Wax and kill/fuck with me/And get your caps peeled
  • I don't know why I'm even on this track/Y'all niggas ain't even on my level
  • Peep how we do it/Keep it real/Its penitentiary steel/This ain't no freestyle battle/All you niggas getting killed
  • With your mouths open/Tryin' to come up off of me/You and the clouds hoping
  • niggas think they learned to fly/But they burn mutha-fucka you deserve to die/Talking about you Getting Money/But its funny to me
  • All you niggas living bummy/While you fucking with me?/I'm a self made Millionaire/Thug livin', out of prison/Pistols in the Air {Air} (Ha Ha)
  • Now its all about versace/You copied my style/Five shots couldn't drop me/I took it and smiled
  • Now I'm back to set the record straight/With my A-K/I'm still the thug that you love to hate/Mutha-fucka I'll Hit 'Em Up
  • Oh yah Mobb Deep (uhh)/You wanna fuck with us/You Little young ass mutha-fuckas
  • Any of you niggas from New York that want to bring it, Bring it./But we ain't singing, We bringing drama
  • Now when I came out, I told you it was just about biggie.^ My respect for you is now even broader.

  • And since we all came from a woman/Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman/I wonder why we take from our women/Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?/I think it's time to kill for our women/Time to heal our women, be real to our women
  • And if we don't we'll have a race of babies/That will hate the ladies, that make the babies/And since a man can't make one/He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
  • So will the real men get up/I know you're fed up ladies, but keep your head up
  • And suddenly tha ghetto didn't seem so tough/And though we had it rough, we always had enough
  • I huffed and puffed about my curfew and broke the rules/Ran with the local crew, and had a smoke or two

  • I try to keep my head up, and still keep from gettin wet up/You know it's funny when it rains it pours
  • They got money for wars, but can't feed the poor/Say there ain't no hope for the youth and the truth is/it ain't no hope for tha future/and they wonder why we crazy,i blame my mother for turnin brother into a crack baby
  • Cause I think we can make it, in fact, I'm sure/And if you fall, stand tall and comeback for more

  • You can't complain you was dealt this/hell of a hand without a man, feelin helpless
  • Dying inside, but outside you're looking fearless/While tears, is rollin down your cheeks/Ya steady hopin things don't all down this week
