God bless the mothers and younger brothers of hustlers
Cause she don't want sob at his wake
But he want to follow in his steps
Bang his hat, learn his shakes
Master his swagger in the bathroom mirror
Cop a Chevy, steady mob in his place
Lupe introduces the story of a boy and his mom in the hood. The mother is worried that her son will fall victim to the vices of the ghetto while the boy himself is trying to be like his older brother who was a hustler. The mom knows that life on the Streets will likely lead to an early death and she doesn’t want to go through that pain.
