[verse 1]
growin’ up on section a, momma in the otha room cryin’
cuz she got bills to pay, and it ain’t no ch*r*s to play
only thang outside is a sand box and a gate to hate
and the show ain’t gon’ show money, soul of a show money
only thang around town, brooklyn is dat dope money (livin’ in the projects)
dem boys on the corna, and they pockets gittin’ stronga
momma did it fo’ the hunger
we sold about a hundred, err’body still runnin’
and we sittin’ on the block
cuz the dope feigns rollin’
videos, i ain’t trynna be no rap
i ain’t trynna be no act
i’m tryin’ to make a stack up (livin’ in the projects)
i ain’t gotta call practice
so if i’m on the streets, then come greet or tear my back up (livin’ in the projects)
tha police betta call back up
cuz if i can’t feed my daughter – i’ma come and rob ya (and i was…)

[verse 2]
rememba when the food stamps used to look like dollas
i ain’t have no clothes so the ho’s wouldn’t holla
git outta here would all a n*gg* wann’
when i hit ’em lights all the roaches h*t the flo’ (d*mn)
momma had got in to a accident
it’s f*cked up, mayn she can’t even pay the rent
and the heat and light been out eva since
so you know when a n*gg* gone, it git cold in the b*tch
you know what i’ma do? – i’ma go git rich
put on my ski mask and go hit me a liq
it’s all you could do when you young and from tha bricks
i’m from the hood, lil’ shawty, i’ma represent (and i was…)

and if a man stepped to me i got a right to grab the steal
