It's sad, cause I bet Brenda doesn't even know
Just cause you're in the ghetto doesn't mean you can't grow
Without any positive family figures, Brenda grew up having no idea that she could do something great with her life and make it out of the ghetto.
These lyrics strongly reference 2Pac’s famous poem, “The Rose That Grew From Concrete”:
Did u hear about the rose that grew from a crack
In the concrete
Proving nature’s laws wrong it learned 2 walk
without having feet
Funny it seems but by keeping its dreams
it learned 2 breathe fresh air
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else even cared!
