Welcome To D-Block Lyrics

by Jadakiss

This is my livelihood
That you fuckin' with
This is it right here baby
No more hatin' in the world
You know, it's gonna be what it's gonna be
Ruff Riders

Welcome to D Block, the city of broke down dreams
With things ain't always peachy keen as they seem
City of dope dealers, killers, pimps, pushers
Pan handlers hustlers and doped out fiends

The sun don't shine here, in this part of town
But we all got a town that's similar to this too
'Cuz every cities got a ghetto and every ghetto got a hood
Take a good look around you 'cuz there's a D Block near you

Place where ain't no body that proud, it's a fuckin' black cloud
That got people under the impression they can act wild
Workin' around though, see if you can pull a trigger on the pound yo
Five minutes flat the whole town though

Lot is assumin' a niggas salary
More lies than truth definitely more rumors than reality
Only way you beatin' a body is a technicality
Other than that catch 'em and Clinton on a gallery

The determination and dedication of discipline
Listenin' and catchin' the jewels you was missin'
And they still doin' coward shit
You know the hate is gonna always be heavy but the love over powers it

Somethin' in the air but the older they get
They kill you quicker over a girl than over a brick
We don't play with the lizards
We make phrases up and say I'm exquisite
Anytime you can pay us a visit

Welcome to D Block, the city of broke down dreams
With things ain't always peachy keen as they seem
City of dope dealers, killers, pimps, pushers
Pan handlers hustlers and doped out fiends

The sun don't shine here, in this part of town
But we all got a town that's similar to this too
'Cuz every cities got a ghetto and every ghetto got a hood
Take a good look around you 'cuz there's a D Block near you

Welcome to D Block, the mighty, mighty D Block
A place in New York City where Diddy won't even walk
It's D Block, the part of Yonkers I wouldn't be caught
Without two pistols on me that'll be cocked in each pocket

D Block don't even stop to talk, you just keep walkin'
Stick up kids every block who watch for that free op
Portunity, as soon as you leave out that jewelry shop
And you won't even notice your mind will be so preoc

Cupied on that new watch you just copped
You wont even see that ride pullin' up along side you
You'll be shot for you even realize you were spied over three blocks
D Block the place where OG's get knocked, locked up

Get out come home for a week and get re-knocked
You don't even see cops, hip-hop police don't even stop
On D Block, where everybody wants to be Pac
And you can get popped over the new G Unit Reeboks

Welcome to D Block, the city of broke down dreams
With things ain't always peachy keen as they seem
City of dope dealers, killers, pimps, pushers
Pan handlers hustlers and doped out fiends

The sun don't shine here, in this part of town
But we all got a town that's similar to this too
'Cuz every cities got a ghetto and every ghetto got a hood
Take a good look around you 'cuz there's a D Block near you

If you bust and your gun got nigga, niggas on the run
And you rep where you from nigga you D Block
And you try to come home and your pockets is light as a cup
They don't give a fuck, you D Block

Aiyo bang bang nigga, let's get it on
Homies been a monster, but it's worst now that my son been born
And every nigga where I be, I put in work for free
It's D Block mothafucka, here grab this P

Welcome to D Block, a place where 'lil niggas is killaz
And the mother's raisin' a son that turn into Gorillaz
And the hallway's is pissy as hell
All we do is get bigger

More ignorant, you send us to jail
My niggas shoot anything that'll move
Sell drugs, from the rise to the sun to the fall of the moon
I'd die the way I stand with my man if I can
When the shells come this is D Block ya'll welcome

Welcome to D Block, the city of broke down dreams
With things ain't always peachy keen as they seem
City of dope dealers, killers, pimps, pushers
Pan handlers hustlers and doped out fiends

The sun don't shine here, in this part of town
But we all got a town that's similar to this too
'Cuz every cities got a ghetto and every ghetto got a hood
Take a good look around you 'cuz there's a D Block near you
