"These are the streets!

Shit is real out here!

This ain't no fuckin joke!"


I lived in a spot called Millbrooke Projects

The original Criminal Minded rap topic

With twenty cents in my pocket I saw the light

If you're young gifted and black, you got no rights

Your only true right, is a right to a fight

The sacred street art of keepin it real

Why I gotta listen, to somebody else?

How they got wealth, let me talk about myself

But all I really got is hip-hop and a glock

The results are obvious, if I'm confined to my block

Occasionally, in the city I'm released

to meet other beasts, lookin for the feast

We grunt and growl, on the
