I understand why niggas leave ain't they don't come back
It's either that or they family will grieve and they won't come back
In the available versions of this song they have edited out the second line with just silence leaving this “don’t come back………….and they won’t come back. In some of the later versions both of these lines were edited completely out to remove the gap in vocals on the track. So most people do not even know these lines are even in the track. I not completely sure why but I have to assume it is because of the "family will grieve” part was too much. The lines are meant to mean Joe understands why niggas get out of the hood and don’t come back because if you don’t you get murdered and can’t come back leaving your family to grieve at the funeral which goes with the next line.
