[Intro: Speaker]
So, all of you Africans
All of you Africans that wanna do thangs
That's workin' for other people
Y'all need to open your own business
Save your money, quit payin' motherfuckers for jheri curls
Quit payin' motherfuckers for perms
Save your money, start your own business
And you true Africans, will have put hundreds to work
This is our future right here, this out future right here
(This some shit! The new generation is on! The new generation!)
Hey, I'mma tell you right now
If if if I have to die today, for this little African right here
To have a future I'm a dead motherfucker
(You right!)


[Verse 1: Snoop Doggy Dogg]
Wake up, jumped out my bed
I'm in a 2 man cell with my homie Lil 1/2 Dead
Murder was the case that they gave me
Dear God, I wonder can you save me
I'm only 18, so I'm a young buck
It's a riot, if I don't scrap, I'm getting stuck
But that's the life of a G, I guess

Ese's way deep, shanked two in the chest
Bests run cause brothers is dropping quicker
Ugh, too late, damn, down goes another nigga

Bouncin' off the walls, throwin' them dogs
Gettin' a rep as a young hog

It ain't nothin' like the street life
You better be strapped with yo' shank, cause ain't no fist fight
So I guess I gots ta handle mine
Since I did the crime, I gots to do my time

[Hook]

[Dat Nigga Daz]
Them say me grow up to be nothin', look at me now
And tell me what you see
I am what I am, it's only me...

[Donny Hathaway sample]
Lil' ghetto boy
Playing in the ghetto streets
What'cha gonna do when you grow up
And have to face responsibility...?


[Verse 2: Dr. Dre]
Now, I'm holdin' a dub, sitting on swoll
27 years old, off on parole, stroll

I'm back up on my feet wit my mind on the money
That I'll be making as soon as I touch the streets
Things done changed on this side
Remember they used to thump but now they blast, right

But it ain't no thing to me
Cause now I'm what they call a loced-assed O.G
The little homies from the hood wit grip
Are the ones I get wit cause I'm down to set trip

Nigga, I'm bigger than you, so what'cha wanna do
Didn't know he had a .22
Straight sitting behind his back
I grabbed his pockets and then I heard six caps
I fell to the ground wit blood on my hands
I didn't understand
How a nigga so young could bust a cap

I used to be the same way back
I guess that's what I get (for what)
For trying to jack them little homies for they grip


[Dat Nigga Daz]
Me learn many things from what me on the street
The outcome of what I've come to be...

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Snoop Doggy Dogg]
Something for the real OG's to get wit
Some facts, made our made, now you wanna run and play
Like every single day, really doe

You know me, I'm the smooth macadamien, gaming them for my homie
No need to be uncalm if you pack right
And learning just enuff to keep your sack right
Late nights, I wonder what they getting fo'
Early morning on the corners, what they hitting fo'
Seven young G's but they serve down
In a G ride, east side where they swerve now
Not thinking about what's really going on
Got crept on, stepped on, now they gone
I spent 4 years in the county wit nutting but convicts around me
But now I'm back at the pound
And we expose ways for the youth to survive
Some think it's wrong but we tend to think it's right

So make all them ends you can make
Cause when you're broke, you break
, check it out
So ain't no need for your mama to trip
Cause you's a hustling ass youngsta, clocking your grip


[Dat Nigga Daz]
Now me finally grown as you can see, still an OG
For life and always remain to be...

[Hook]
