“id turn out all the hoes thats heterosexual
smack conceited niccas right off the pedestal
id even look for my dad that i never knew
then show him how i look and my beretta too
id do good shit, like take kids from the ghetto
show them what they could have, if they never settle
take every white kid from high class level
show em what christmas like, grownin up in the ghetto”
I KNOW them brothas were forreal. I know the look and their stories were too fluid. Their wasn’t a break in timelines or anything to suggest they wasn’t about that life. One of em (the only one with his pants up, not sagging) had a big ass baretta sticking off his hip. I only saw it because he was on the side of me.
They were just young, wild, reckless niggas who fully expect to die young b. Them type of niggas don’t really give a fuck about shit. I grew up with people like that.
Fuck are you fools taking about Empire State of Mind was bitter and depressing? Not uplifting? The whole song is about how if you can make it there you can make it anywhere.. It’s a song of triumph. Tripping the ref is depressing? Fuck y’all talking about? Seriously
