~Tupac~ Sometimes its hard, to wake up in the morning Mind full of demons. I dont wanna hear em anymore. Got me heart broken, fine. So many babies screaming because their seeing destruction Before they see a human being. So they start smoking weed Will never get our day. Until we learn to pray, Keep our families in shape. Cause they all broken Why? do ghetto birds die? Before we learn to fly? Somebody elses child caught in gun smoke & We, can all make a change So i'm told, but i havent seen a change unfold I keep open pleas If you prefer to breathe Communties in need Of people that will lead Keep your eyes open I, can only say i'll try Until the day i die I promise to be wise With my heart open Greed, brings only misery; a way to tragedy So i stay sucka free. Only a few chosen, rise. My ghetto queens, rise, dont be afraid to, try To many of us die, for the daughters,open. wise my brothers, be wise. Stay focus on the prize though every dies.
~EM~ If we can only learn to take, our anger and our hate Conrtol our mental state Settle down and set it straight. Maybe we can learn to take A second to pump the brakes Before we set it, regret it later, and let is escalate. Because by then its just to late Theres so much we can take And theres only so much someone can swallow and tolerate. Up to the point that he just breaks Snaps, and thats all it takes You'd think that we was learning from other rappers mistakes. But we aint. Its great to go against. With every artist comes an image he portrays And a picture that he paints. But in amidst of all this anger and these skanks Never did you hear me say i am a gangster, and i aint. Hear no complaints. But i know that i will always continue to grow As long as i lead and never follow no ones elses shadow there will never be another me And that i can guarantee Thats why the fuck i remain sucker free, till this day The game will never be the same No matter how much fame or success they obtain There will never be another me And no matter what they do There will never be another you You can search but you will never find You can try to rewind time But in your hearts and your minds We will never die, we are forever alive. And we can continue growing
(TUPAC) ONE DAY AT A TIME. ~?????~ Dont get caught up in publicity and caught in the hype Rappers are regular people minus money and lights Searching for fortune and fame and super stardom All the jewelry, all the cars. Who's crews the hardest? Now the hiphop police, them fellas is watchin And the kids think beef is the only option Outlaws born filthy, guilty as charged My memories reason to die, Makaveli lives on They think the industy is fun, aint no pity with guns And when your money is up thats when you enemies come So if he died and came back would he try to save rap We needin a change this drama remains
I spent my whole life fighting myself That, i cant win, so I'm inviting some help ???????????????????????? I take rights from the left I'm still just like a kid looking for stripes on my belt And that there is a fight in itself So i just pray and hope god, take a light to myself No matter how much i try, stay alive, I'ma die a man and still standin in the love of my pride
Frivolous beef, we past that I'm trying to keep someone from come,coming in And collect on my ass, cap. Rappers in the game aint change And i finally realized that we not in the same game The hating, the ??? So i guess i'll deal with it Them 4,5 a pop killas, yes, i'm still with it The streets is military you gotta be a solider, Gotta stay lery and keep your eyes on the road they do what they gotta do to shackle and hold So we got to do what we got to do to keep it growing One day at a time, keep the faith in your mind,
