You're thuggin' and you love the streets
Huggin' the block, sellin' rocks, gettin' major heat and niggaz hatin'
And you ain't stop to think about niggaz runnin' their mouth
Niggaz cessed you out, that's how it goes down

What happened to the days
When we could hug a block, flippin' rocks and just get money
I remember when you and me used to ball
We had it all and we took a fall

I came up in Cokeland, better known as Oakland
Your weed could sell, are you smokin'? Eighteen with a big Mercedes
Sellin' dope in the mid-eighties, homie talkin' 'bout I'm about to win
Now when you gon' let 'em all out the pen

You sold crack to hell and back
Whoever would have thought you could fail at that
Bein' broke ain't never been cool
And it ain't no hope when you're failing in school

You might as well flip the sac, roll out of town
And take a trip with that or you could just hit the block
Stayin' on the corner, come and get the rocks
Bein' out on the streets as a young teen wasn't always a fun thing

You're thuggin' and you love the streets
Huggin' the block, sellin' rocks, gettin' major heat and niggaz hatin'
And you ain't stop to think about niggaz runnin' their mouth
Niggaz snitched you out, that's how it goes down

What happened to the days
When we could hug a block, flippin' rocks and just get money
I remember when you and me used to ball
We had it all and we took a fall, that's how it goes down

Dope fiend still get high, while dope dealers barely get by
You better get your life right
You wanna live in the 'burbs with your white wife, do your own thing
I know you won't change and I can't play you wrong man

I'm laced with that long game, it's just not a lot of choices man
You ain't plannin' to go to jail with the poison clan
So you could be another number in the system, stuck for years
Got a brother in the pen fucked up

All the stashes you know you kept and everything that the police left
It's too late when you notice it, it's all gone
Motherfuckers done stole your shit, you wanna kill 'em
And you still do but realize real killas get killed too, oh

You're thuggin' and you love the streets
Huggin' the block, sellin' rocks, gettin' major heat and niggaz hatin'
And you ain't stop to think about niggaz runnin' their mouth
Niggaz snitched you out, that's how it goes down

What happened to the days
When we could hug a block, flippin' rocks and just get money
I remember when you and me used to ball
We had it all and we took a fall, that's how it goes down

He's disappeared into thin air, he's nowhere
When the last time he been here, we don't care
'Cause he don't come around no mo'
Nigga live with his momma, down in Brough

He's just tryin' to survive
I guess it's all right 'cause at least he's alive
'Cause nowadays a lil' kid might shoot you down
Life's wild in the town, young fools like to clown

He did the same thing, fall for the lies
Hold your head up high and swallowed the pride
Caught in a trap but don't know what you in
Had a million, now you ain't got two cents

You can't say nothin', now what
I don't hear you talkin' all that loud stuff
If you live and you die by the game and you lose
At least you did spend your life tryin' to change

You're thuggin' and you love the streets
Huggin' the block, sellin' rocks, gettin' major heat and niggaz hatin'
And you ain't stop to think about niggaz runnin' their mouth
Niggaz snitched you out, that's how it goes down

What happened to the days
When we could hug a block, flippin' rocks and just get money
I remember when you and me used to ball
We had it all and we took a fall, that's how it goes down

That's how it goes down
That's how it goes down
That's how it goes down

Oh I remember when we had it all
And I remember when we used to ball, we used to ball
I remember, don't you remember?
When we had it all, we used to ball

That's how it goes down
That's how it goes down
That's how it goes down
