All you wanted to be, a soulja, a soulja
All you wanted to be, a soulja, like me
All you wanted to be, a soulja, a soulja
All you wanted to be, a soulja, like me

All you wanted to be, a soulja, a soulja
All you wanted to be, a soulja, like me
All you wanted to be, a soulja, a soulja
All you wanted to be, a soulja, like me

They cuttin' off welfare
They think crime is risin' now
You got whites killin' blacks
Cops killin' blacks, and blacks killin' blacks

Shit just gon' get worse
They just gon' become souljas
Straight souljas

All you wanted to be, a soulja, a soulja
All you wanted to be, a soulja, like me
All you wanted to be, a soulja, a soulja
All you wanted to be, a soulja, like me

All you wanted to be, a soulja, a soulja
All you wanted to be, a soulja, like me
All you wanted to be, a soulja, a soulja
All you wanted to be, a soulja, like me

Crack done took a part of my family tree
My mom is on the shit, my daddy's splittin'
Mom is steady blamin' me
Is it my fault, just 'cause I'm a young black male?

Cops sweat me as if my destiny is makin' crack sales
Only fifteen and got problems
Cops on my tail, so I bail 'til I dodge 'em
They finally pull me over and I laugh

"Remember Rodney King?" And I blast on his punk ass
Now I got a murder case
You speak of heaven punk? I never heard of the place
Wanted to come up fast, got a Uz and a black mask

Duckin', fuckin' 'Task', now who's the jack-ass?
Keep my shit cocked, 'cause the cops got a glock too
What the fuck would you do, drop them or let 'em drop you?
I chose droppin' the cop

I got me a glock, and a glock for the niggaz on my block
Momma tried to stab me, I moved out
Sold a pound a weed, made G's, bought a new house
I'm only seventeen, I'm the new kid

Got me a crew, bought 'em jewels, and a Uz'-thick
But all good things don't last
'Task' came fast and busted my black ass

Coolin' in the pen, where the good's kept
Now my little brother wants to follow in my footsteps
'A soulja'

All you wanted to be, a soulja, a soulja
All you wanted to be, a soulja, like me
All you wanted to be, a soulja, a soulja
All you wanted to be, a soulja, like me

Buck, buck, niggaz get fucked, don't step to this
Quiet as kept, I'm blessed on a quest with a death wish
Tell 'em to come and test and arrest nigga, it's hectic
Here's the anorexic, I'm makin' it to an exit

Walkin' through the streets on the black tip
Packed with several gats, 'cause I'm on some 'Pay 'em back' shit
Niggaz don't wanna try me, brother, you'll get shot down
Now I'm king of the block, since my bigger brother's locked down

I'm hot now, so many punk police have got shot down
Other coppers see me on the block and they jock now
That's what I call, a kingpin
Send my brother what he needs and some weed up to Sing-Sing

Tellin' him just be ready set
Pack ya shit up quick and when I hit, be prepared to jet
Niggaz from the block on the boat now
Every single one got a gun, that'll smoke pow

These punks about to get hit by the best
I'm wearin' double vest so aim at my fuckin' chest
I'll be makin' straight dome calls
Touch the button on the wall, you'll be pickin' up your own balls

I can still hear my mother shout
"Hit the pig nigga, break your bigger brother out"
I got a message for the warden
I'm comin' for ya ass, as fast as Flash Gorden

We get surrounded in the mess hall, yes y'all
A crazy motherfucker makin' death calls
Just bring me my brother and we leavin'
For every minute you stall, one of y'all bleedin'

They brought my brother in a jiffy
I took a cop just in case things got tricky
And just as we was walkin' out, 'Bang'
I caught a bullet in the head, the screams never left my mouth

My brother caught a bullet too
I think he gon' pull through, he deserve to
The fast life ain't everything they told ya
Never get much older, following the tracks of a soulja

All you wanted to be, a soulja, a soulja
All you wanted to be, a soulja, like me
All you wanted to be, a soulja, a soulja
All you wanted to be, a soulja, like me
