I live the life of a thug, sold many of drugs
Whatever you name it, I've done
Laid a few cats down, I'm on some new shit now
I tell you whatever you name it, I've done

Live the life of a hustla, keepin' it gangsta
Whatever you name it, I've done
I've been all around the world, met all kinds of girls
I tell you whatever you name it, I've done

Comin' up I had it bad, I never knew my dad
Only memories, a picture in a frame
He passed away when I was two, there was nothin' they could do
And all I know is that, they said he was the ladies man

Momma kept pressin' on, her boys kept her strong
We didn't need for much, she did it all alone
She kept her head up high till the day she died
Told me to never give up, do what I gotta to survive

I been uptown, played many games, hurt by many girls
Been all around, lookin' for love but no one to trust
I been locked down with the big boys, see I changed now
The high school diploma made my momma proud

I live the life of a thug, sold many of drugs
Whatever you name it, I've done
Laid a few cats down, I'm on some new shit now
I tell you whatever you name it, I've done

Live the life of a hustla, keepin' it gangsta
Whatever you name it, I've done
I've been all around the world, met all kinds of girls
I tell you whatever you name it, I've done

In and out of jail since 12, a juvenile so no bail
Most of my summer days, spent 'em away
They gave me a B and E, first degree robbery
Criminal mischief, prosecution's on my heels now

I tried to straightin' up too, I got hit by deja vu
A 9 to 5 couldn't find it, my only option was to block it
I been shot at, stabbed, you don't know the half
I was a real ass cat takin' a look back, the life of a thug

I been uptown, played many games, hurt by many girls
Been all around, lookin' for love but no one to trust
I been locked down with the big boys, see I changed now
The high school diploma made my momma proud

I live the life of a thug sold many of drugs
Whatever you name it, I've done
Laid a few cats down, I'm on some new shit now
I tell you whatever you name it, I've done

Live the life of a hustla, keepin' it gangsta
Whatever you name it, I've done
I've been all around the world, met all kinds of girls
I tell you whatever you name it, I've done

I've been through so much didn't know who to trust
I could only count on me out in playin' in these streets
Had to change up my hustle, had to live with the struggle
Takin' a dozen a blow

It's been a long time comin' but I came up
And I gotta thank the Lord 'cause He gave me enough
Anythin' more than that I wouldn't be where I'm at
Anythin' less I confess look at me now, I'm at my best

I live the life of a thug sold many of drugs
Whatever you name it, I've done
Laid a few cats down, I'm on some new shit now
I tell you whatever you name it, I've done

Live the life of a hustla, keepin' it gangsta
Whatever you name it, I've done
I've been all around the world, met all kinds of girls
I tell you whatever you name it, I've done
