[Intro]
It's okay
Tomorrow'll be a better day

When ya rent a day late and ya tryna stay straight
But the only way to get it is to slang that weight
Okay, tomorrow'll be a better day

[Verse 1]
We all came in the world with a sparkle in our eye
And knowing the only thing that we can promise is we die

But a promise is a lot can't nobody guarantee it
With death around the corner can't nobody damn see it
I can't agree that God good at all time
But we all know shit ain't all good at all time
So I tote my strap in the hood at all time
But respect ain't just something that's understood in our time
Especially by our kind
man I hate it for the future
Police don't wanna lock ya up no more they wanna shoot ya
Ain't as half as bad as these hatas'll do ya
As soon as ya get ya loot up they wanna shoot off

Lord forbid to kill me I bet ya nobody knew what
Suckas get shot and police come straight to us
Imagine how they do us ever since niggas blew up
I know ya goin through it know I'm goin through it too

[Hook 1]
When ya rent a day late and ya tryna stay straight
But the only way to get it is to slang that weight
Okay, tomorrow'll be a better day

When ya daughter like 6 and her pops ain't shit
You ain't wanna tell her you and momma gotta go strip
Okay, tomorrow'll be a better day

[Verse 2]
I'm doin this for the hood, the kid wit no dad
I was just like ya'll don't feel so bad

Know it's hard when ya live so bad
They whoop ya ass and they wonder why ya still so bad

For long ya get whoopin's and just laugh
Momma washin' clothes behind lil' blue bag
She ask what ya what ya doin ya tell her stuntin' like my daddy
You knew that I was gonna be a hustla when ya had me
Look around ma you sent me to the sto' to get some bread
And I'm passin' at least 8 J's or mo'

Rent been late for 8 days or mo'
But slangin' blow ain't bad a habit as 8 days of snow

[Hook 2]
When ya speeding wit the white and ya see the blue lights
And ya on ya 3rd strike so the judge say life

Okay, tomorrow'll be a better day

If ya son 14 and his dad is a criminal
Workin' to realize Baby girl goin witcha tho
Okay, tomorrow'll be a better day

[Verse 3]
My momma girl son 14 just got killed
Had to catch myself
Bout to tell her I know how ya feel
That'd been a damn lie
See her tryin not to cry
She know he in a better place
But she just wanna know why
Know somebody tellin' lie
And a nigga gon' die
It's goin down
I did tell her to calm down
I tried to convince her that he in God's arms now
She said I don't believe that there's a God right now
I know its hard right now and ya heart's light now
But God give new beginings you can start right now
You can start right now cuz you are poor right now
But shit you in better shape than we are right now


[Hook 1]
When ya rent a day late and ya tryna stay straight
But the only way to get it is to slang that weight
Okay, tomorrow'll be a better day

When ya daughter like 6 and her pops ain't shit
You ain't wanna tell her you and momma gotta go strip
Okay, tomorrow'll be a better day

When ya speeding wit the white and ya see the blue lights
And ya on ya 3rd strike so the judge say life

Okay, tomorrow'll be a better day

If ya son 14 and his dad is a criminal
Workin' to realize baby girl goin witcha tho
Okay, tomorrow'll be a better day
