My life.. Pharoahe Monch.. Ayatollah
Holiday Styles.. Double R.. Rawkus Records
Pharoahe talk to 'em.. let 'em try to understand
Let 'em try.. let 'em try now

[Hook: Pharoahe]
My life is all I have
My rhymes, my pen, my pad

And I done made it through the struggle, don't judge me
What you say now, won't budge me

Cuz where I come from, so often
People you grew up with, layin in a coffin

But I done made it through the pain in spite
It's my time now, my world, my life
My life

Is based on, lightin blunts, loadin guns
Tellin my lawyers to get the case gone (uh-huh)

I need the bills that the presidents got they face on
So I can switch my residence - get a truck and a Lex

Fuck a check, I no longer have to wait for 'em
I made a couple ends, lost a couple friends
I light a blunt cuz never will the struggle end

So you can judge a nigga, but you ain't got it, you ain't in the role
So you really can't budge a nigga - you oughta love a nigga

For the fact that it's my world and my life but still I'm a rugged nigga
They say you buggin nigga, fuck it, I'm a thuggin nigga

You talkin bullshit then kick it with another nigga
I got a bigger bed and I need a cover nigga
And I ain't got friends - I got enemies
So if they with me, then that means they my brother niggas

[Hook: Pharoahe]

Is a blunt to the head, a prayer for the dead
Run around hustlin, scared of the feds

They said death is eternal sleep
But the only thing is you ain't really sure if you prepared for the bed

So often we get merked in the head, instead of big money
They got big momma hurtin instead

My life is makin the verse - but the handcuffs
The bullpens, the jail cells is makin it worse

Tell mom I don't go to the church - tell Oc' I dont' go to mas
I blow blunts, hold guns, and I'mma be right there when the soldiers'll march
I play the part, and my heart seem colder than March

But on the flipside of things, it's still warmer than June
I have talks with the Lord and he'll be callin me soon, what
And my life is all I have - my family, my niggas, my flow, my grabs what

[Hook: Pharoahe] - 2X

My life
My life
My life
My life
