Shorty Wanna Be A Thug Lyrics

by 2Pac

Said he wanna be, shorties gonna be a thug
Said he wanna be, one day he's gonna be
Said he's wanna be, shorties gonna be a thug
Said he's gonna be, one day he gonna be

Say he wanna be, shorties gonna be a thug
Said he gonna be, one day he's gonna be
Said he wanna be, shorties gonna be a thug

He was a nice middle class nigga
But nobody knew the evil he'd do, when he got a little bigger
Get off the final blaze while puffing on a Newport
Plottin' on a another way to catch a case

Was only sixteen, yet convicted as a felon
With a bunch of old niggas but you the only one who ain't telling
I tell you it's a cold world, stay in school
You tell me its a man's world, play the rules

And fade fools, n' break rules until we major
Blaze up, getting with hoes through my pager
Was raised up, commencing to money makin' tactics
It's getting drastic, niggas got automatics

My fingers on the trigga, tell the Lord
To make way for another straight thug nigga
I'm sitting getting buzzed, looking for some luv
From the homies, 'cuz shorty wanna be a thug

Said he gonna be, one day he's gonna be
Said he wanna be, shorties gonna be a thug
Said he gonna be, one day he's gonna be
Said he wanna be, shorties gonna be a thug

Said he gonna be, one day he's gonna be
Said he wanna be, shorties gonna be a thug
Said he gonna be, one day he's gonna be
Said he wanna be, shorties gonna be a thug

Straight from the Hall to the Penn
Adolescent nigga scaling weight and standing six feet ten
He carried weight like a Mack truck
Gonna bust on some playa haters if the motherfuckers act tough

Then thats when the lethal weapon with the razor
This little nigga smoking weed and getting blazed up
No one could figure, when the guns blast pull the trigga
Could take the life of a young nigga guns bigger

No mother and father, you see, the niggas all alone
Old timers my role model, the war zone
Released with this game 'til it's a part of me
My heart don't beat no fear and it ain't hard to see

The future is looking dim
I'm trying to make a profit out of living in this sin
I'm in the dark getting buzzed, looking for some love
Out with the homies, 'cuz shorty wanna be a thug

Said he gonna be, one day he's gonna be
Said he wanna be, shorties gonna be a thug
Said he gonna be, one day he's gonna be
Said he wanna be, shorties gonna be a thug

Said he gonna be, one day he's gonna be
Said he wanna be, shorties gonna be a thug
Said he gonna be, one day he's gonna be
Said he wanna be, shorties gonna be a thug

Shorties gonna be a thug

You little bad ass nigga, to the young niggas
Gotta stay sharp nigga, play your part
You got plenty of time, you bad motherfuckers
You only get three mistakes, then thats life, big baby
Niggas crazy, watch the signs damn, you ain't but sixteen nigga?
Sixteen? That's a bad motherfucker
