Gotta teach the shorties that...
The decisions they make in they life is crucial, man
They choices is gon' be with them for the rest of they life
A simple right or left can mean life or death
Epic fail or nice success
Days of pleasure or nights of stress

Walk with a dirty 5th or be chromeless?
Add on the inf or miss my opponent?
Want ads or ship in bricks to the bonus (bundles!)?
Stay sober or sip it up
Keep that rhyme or rip it up? (Is that good?)
Be a good nigga or risk the cuffs?
Constantly doubt or consistent trust?
Run through the hoes or settle down?
Conform to what's on, or keep my ghetto sound?
Hustle here or pick a better town?
Keep it on safety or let it pound?
Blood or Crip?
