I knew this guy from ATL Georgia
Said he wanted to be a judge when he grew up
Had a good life livin up in the suburbs
Doin his thang just tryna make him come up
But one day things began to make a bad change
His father left and his mother had to maintain
Moved to the ghetto, joined a gang, and began to slang
Now he found himself caught up in the game

What can u gain from makin up your own rules?
A major change from the things that he use to do
And he even stopped prayin like he use to
Now he doin what he thinks that he gotta do
Now his boys is the only thing that he needs
And mary jane is his only necessity
The state of mind is his only capativity
And now he has to face reality and this mentality
And what he did for the will of stability
His lifes changed so physically mentally
He didnt mean to go through this intentionally
Now he has to face reality
And the ghetto ghetto mentality

Seventeen with a baby mama
Now he's trapped in a life that's full of drama
Still thinkin that he can do what he wants
But he gotta live for his son cause he's still a father
Now hes tryin to make money the best way he can
Trifflin down the streets thinkin that he the man
Dude is blind he still can't understand
How much his life is gettin outta hand

What can u gain from makin up your own rules?
A major change from the things that he use to do
And he even stopped prayin like he use to
Now he doin what he thinks that he gotta do
Now his boys is the only thing that he needs
And mary jane is his only necessity
The state of mind is his only capativity
And now he has to face reality and this mentality
And what he did for the will of stability
His lifes changed so physically mentally
He didnt mean to go through this intentionally
Now he has to face reality
And the ghetto ghetto mentality

What would you do if you gave the world to lose your soul?
Can you relate can you hear the message in these words?
I got the feelin I know you care, and I,
I wanna know if you'd take that chance
Cause trust me boy this is not the end.
If you dont hear the truth then we'll talk again

Now his boys is the only thing that he needs
And mary jane is his only necessity
The state of mind is his only capativity
And now he has to face reality and this mentality
And what he did for the will of stability
His lifes changed so physically mentally
He didnt mean to go through this intentionally
Now he has to face reality
And the ghetto ghetto mentality
