[Verse 1: Mr. Cheeks] Whoever thought this a happen? Hey yo, that bum nigga rappin,' took it the top, now I won't stop I remember bein' broke cause if I didn't nigga I'd be frontin,' reminisicin' where your nigga at?
Ain't nuthin,' never thought about the hot outfits, jewelry or the celly Back then we was in the skelly Shorties with the barrettes, candy in the bag The handgun, remember when we shot the fair one? A nigga like me had the motherfuckin' pro players and my Lees on For a nickel got my squeeze on Fly balls off the wall in the schoolyard Swear to gods got my first quickie in school garage
[Chorus] I remember those days You and I gettin' paid Now we got it made, oh yeah I remember, I remember
[Verse 2: Mr. Cheeks] Aiyo, we open gates and let the dogs chase us home after school Until my nigga Skee got bit, yo, but that was cool We took him to the crib we laughin', growin' up We drinkin' liquor on the stool while he throwin' up We runnin' from school security, besides that the 102 cops Yo, the man was my grandpops He used to air me out, he never tried to even motherfuckin' hear me out No punishment, but here we out We back at it again, me and my men Yo what was realest when us niggas ????? And all we wanna know does anybody fuckin' care? And why this trouble follow me every fuckin' where?
[Verse 3: Mr. Cheeks] Aiyo, we used to hot wire cars, bragged about the scars we collected Tryin’ to escape from them older guys up at the bars They never let us bang, let's act ??????? We knew they had a crew, but yo our crew was thick OK, now we graduated from junior high We into badder bitches, caine, getting money yo, we livin’ fly We got the Jordan and ball, we got the weed and all When Chris died yo we felt there was no need to fall We seen it all, from welfare lines, all them good and bad times Back then I wish I had rhymes I got my childhood name from my wild hood Sling still, as though it was a good thing
