I wanna dedicate this one to Robert Yummy Sanderford
And all other lil' young niggaz that's in a rush to be gangstas

As a young nigga, I'm almost swellin' in the wind
Give anythang to be that innocent again when I was ten
I didn't bang but I was hangin' with the homies
Tell them niggaz started slangin' that they don't know me

I got my hustle on, learned to ignore what couldn't pay me
Lately I've been tryin' to make a billion
Can you play me with that jealousy they need to miss me
Don't sweat me if them cowards really want me, come get me

And even I someday will die but I'm cautious, I'm fin' to ride
Put down the top, now we flossin'
Hit the freeway, let the wind blow, drop the window
Workin' with a twenty sack of indo, feelin' good

Stop through the hood, grab the young thugs
And I can't help but reminisce back when we slung drugs
Know it's bad but all we had was our hopes and dreams
Couldn't see unless we learned to slang dope to fiends

He's the kind of G like everybody knows
(As a young nigga)
He's always G'd up, from head to toe
(My memories as a young nigga)

Always got it blown like Al Capone
(Young nigga)
He's the downest G I've ever known

Back in Junior High when we was barely gettin' by
When daddy died tat's when my momma started gettin' high
My neighborhood was full of drivebys
Couldn't survive all our homies livin' short lives

I couldn't cry, told my momma if I did die
Just put a blunt in my casket let me get my dead homies high
Come follow me throughout my history
It's just me against the world stuck in misery

As a young nigga my only thing was to be paid
Life full of riches avoid snitched, 'cause they shady
Back in the days we always found the time to play
But that's before they taught them gang bangers how to spray

Not just L.A. but in the Bay and in Chicago and even St. Louis
Every stadium that I go, when will they change
Stuck in the game like a dumb nigga
Remember how it was to be a young nigga

He's the kind of G like everybody knows
(As a young nigga)
He's always G'd up from head to toe
(My memories as a young nigga)

Always got it blown like Al Capone
(Young nigga)
He's the downest G I've ever known

I'm tellin' you to be young, have your brains
And have every [Incomprehensible] and all that
Yo, y'all niggaz don't know how good you really do got it

Muh'fuckers need to just calm down
And peep what the fuck they wanna do for the rest of the life
'Fore you end your life before you begin your life
You dumb nigga

Now that I'm grown, I got my mind on bein' somethin'
Don't wanna be another statistic, out here doin' nuttin'
Tryin' to maintain in this dirty game, keep it real
And I will even if it kills me

My young niggaz break away from these dumb niggaz
Put down the guns and have some fun nigga
The rest'll come nigga, fame is a fast thang
That gang bangin' puttin' niggaz in a casket

Murdered for hangin' at the wrong place at the wrong time
No longer livin', 'cause he threw up the wrong sign
And every day I watch the murder rate increases
And even worse the epidemic and diseases

What is the future? The projects lookin' hopeless
Where more and more brothers givin' up and don't care
Sometimes I hate when brothers act up, I hit the weed
And I proceed to blow the track up for young niggaz

He's the kind of G like everybody knows
(For these young niggaz)
He's always G'd up from head to toe
(My memories as a young nigga)

He always got it blown like Al Capone
(Take it slow nigga, it's for the young niggaz)
He's the downest G I've ever known
(As a young nigga)

This go out to the young thugs, the have-nots
Little bad motherfuckers from the block
Them niggaz that's thirteen and fourteen
Drivin' Cadillacs, Benzes and shit

Young motherfuckin' hustlers, stay strong nigga
You could be a fuckin' accountant not a dope dealer
You know what I'm sayin'?
Fuck around and you pimpin' out here you could be a lawyer

Niggaz gotta get they priorities straight
Really doe, young niggaz, Little Rah Rah
Especially my little cousins don't be no dumb guy
Don't be a dumb nigga, listen, young niggaz

Young niggaz, young nigga, young nigga
Young niggaz, young nigga, young nigga
Young niggaz, young nigga, young nigga
...
