Y'all ain't never just tripped and pictured
And just looked at the whole situation
Cause once u look at it
You know
(really do)

They don't give a fuck about us...
They don't give a fuck about us...
They don't give a fuck about us.

If I choose to ride, thuggin' til the day I die
Nobody gives a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in their children's eyes
Now they give a fuck about us

[Tupac]

Some say niggas is hard headed cause we love to trip
Equipped with game so we bang with this thuggish shit
I see you trying to hide, hoping that nobody don't notice
You must always remember, you still a member of the hopeless
See ya black like me, so you snap like me
When these devils try to plot, trap our young black seeds
Look it
Cops are as crooked as the niggas they chasin'
Lookin' for role models, our father figures is bases
Some say expect Illuminati take my body to sleep
Niggas at the party with they shotties just as rowdy as me
Before I feed computer chips I gotta deal with brothas flippin
I don't see no devils bleedin', only black blood drippin
We can change, whatcha now say?
I'm watchin niggas work their lives out without pay (huh)
Whatever it takes to switch places with the bustas on top
I'm bustin' shots make the world stop
They don't give a fuck about us

[Chorus]

Now, if I choose to ride
Thuggin' til the day I die
Nobody gives a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in they children's eyes
Now they give a fuck about us

If I choose to ride
Thuggin' til the day I die
Nobody gives a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in they children's eyes
Now they give a fuck about us

[EDI]

It's the morning after and now all the laughter is gone
Time to reflect on what you did cause they saying you wrong
I'm sure you had your reasons dawg, I don't doubt you
See the simple fact of the matter is they don't give a fuck about you
Or them five mouths you forced to feed (uh-huh)
Not including yourself
All you want is wealth, they perceive it as greed
So as you loaded up that mac and continued to bus
Yo, I was on paper
Thinking they don't give a fuck about us

[Tupac]

I'm seeing it clearer, hating the picture in the mirror
They claim we inferior
So why the fuck these devils fear ya?
I'm watching my nation die, genocide the cause
Expect a blood bath, the aftermath is y'alls
I told ya last album, we need help cause we dying
Give us a chance, help us advance cause we trying
Ignore my whole plea, watching us in disgust
then they beg when my guns bust
They don't give a fuck about us

Now,
[Chorus x2]
if I choose to ride
Thuggin' til the day I die
Nobody gives a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in they children's eyes
Now they give a fuck about us

[Kastro]

Now all my homies got love for me
Down to catch a slug for me
Guaranteed to bleed deeply
Now that's love
Shit
Nobody else'd give a fuck
If I'm tore down, from the floor down
Six-feet deep in the cut
What the fuck done went wrong?
How long will I be mourned?
When I'm gone, same song
Ain't gave a fuck all along
And who am I to blame em?
Just do or die through the rainin'
Since they don't give a fuck
I don't
Feel what I'm saying?

[Kadafi]

Now thug niggas die but multiply in doubles
Wrapped in plastic or closed casket for our troubles
Pressed in times, we busted like bubbles
With the police, "This nation's peace", sent here to run you
Now look at what this crooked world has come to
I grew up on the other side of perfect, a life of hurtin'
Man still I hustle, so I'm dyin certain
So I spend young time poor and workin'
I see no reason...
So I stay ballin' season to season
Why you stuck thinking that they give a fuck?

[Napolean]

You tell me that my world is in peace, but nigga you're lyin'
Cause half of my niggas, long gone, buried in the dirt just for trying
Sometimes I think my block is dying
And that it's awful
To wake up to another day
Shit ain't changed, that's all fool.
I wake up sweatin, dreamin, coughin
Seein' me upside down backwards head twisted
While I'm layin in the coffin
The shit comes around so often
So tell me somethin
Before I take it out on the world, and get to dumpin'
Nigga I been so through pain, goin through the struggle
Doin the same thing you did at my age and that's hustlin
On the edge of straight bustin'
Well since you don't give a fuck
and you frontin
I'ma drink my Hennessey, like it ain't nothin

Now,

[Outro x2]

if I choose to ride, thuggin' till the day I die
They don't give a fuck about us
But while I'm kickin rhymes, getting to their children's minds
Now they give a fuck about us

They wanna see us die, they kick us every time we try
They don't give a fuck about us
So while I'm getting high, I'm watching as the world goes by
Cause they don't give a fuck about us
