I rolled with some Crips down to a Crenshaw funeral
Never saw so many men slaughtered and I knew the ho responsible
The nigga still alive in a hospital
Midnight they crept in his room and shot the doctor too

Later I learned that he was going a bit wild — that was the last I heard, and this story is based on him
