DJ Khaled – I'm From the Ghetto Lyrics
We the besssst..
I represent the hood..
I represent the ghetto..
I represent the people..
I represent YOU - LISTENNN!!!
All the money in the world couldn't change me
No diamond rings or the fancy cars
Cause my niggas in the hood woulda left me
Holdin this because (I'm from the ghetto)
I'm from the ghetto (and I'm from the projects)
Yeah, that's what got me here
The Chucks, the khaki suits, all the swap meet years
The six dollar socks, the five dollar rocks
Uncle Greg rest in peace, he taught me how to chop
That's why I love the hood and everything we got
From the ice cream trucks to the forty ounce tops
All white Air Force Ones, the fake Jacob watch
Dog turn the TV off, got tired of watchin Jigga boss
So we told our moms we's lookin for jobs
When we was really in the record store lookin for Nas
Project or the ghetto, ghetto and the projects
From Compton to being Dre's number one prospect, so
Hahhh-HAHHH~! Yeah, uhh
They know, uhh
Just food stamps, WIC checks an
And still might need to borrow your Medicade card for health care
Everybody know each other, if not they related
Blocks in the 80's
Ninth, tenth grade is usually when niggas dropout
House party games of spade, sweet Kool-Aid
Boys in blue raid
Black folks get a little dough and forget where they come from
