Cheh, crazy, it's one of those things man
You gotta experience to know what I'm talkin' about
It's where the goin' get rough, Akon
The tough stay tough, Styles P, up front, let's go, konvict

We in too deep to turn back now D, sure is
Watch yourself before you get blown away

You know where I come from
The place where your fate is a mic or a bull or a dum dum
A jail cell a pine box and brothers is dumb young, young boys
Still bustin' guns for the slum that they come from

Cops is the only ones they gon' run from, that's it
They puttin' they hood up but 9 out of 10 of us ain't got good luck
You gon' ride on a man and catch 25
(Blown away)
Or get hit and get sent to the other side

You lose both sides of the coin
So me I play the hood baby not in the groin
Mama got a little church I could join but I didn't go yet
Man got a mosque I could join but I didn't go yet

Cool with the devil on my back, I'm in cold sweats
'Bout to do some dirt in some dirty black old sweats
If you known you shoulda shown the way
Mosta the hood 'bout to get blown away

'Cause I was raised up to show no fear
Cowardly hearts'll never last long here
If you ain't man enough to make s*** clear
Guaranteed you'll get blown away

'Cause I done seen the block break down tears
And I done seen the cops break my peers
Tryin' to hold on to couple more years
Tryin' not to get blown away

See I ain't never shot nobody but I'm known for fightin'
So when I strike man you'll think you been struck by lightning
Shouldn't have to prove myself by killin' a ***
Even a child can take it like by pull the trigga

Retaliation only takes anger mixed with passion
So you target in the distance and keep on blastin'
They say guns don't kill people, people do
So when you're hit man you feel that s*** the evils do

Can't see myself get beat down my eyes swollen
Mom's cryin' they don't know what happened, my pride's stolen
If I ain't got my heat then I got a blade
That hit you off me, so

I was raised up to show no fear
Cowardly hearts'll never last long here
If you ain't man enough to make s*** clear
Guaranteed you'll get blown away

'Cause I done seen the block break down tears
And I done seen the cops break my peers
Tryin' to hold on to couple more years
Tryin' not to get blown away

Keep my eye out for jakes, ears to the streets
Other eye out for snakes and these scandalous freaks
If we ain't on good terms don't bother to speak
Don't smile and try to spark a convo with me

Same thing'll make you laugh it'll make you cry
This quiet ***, he'll take ya life
Hate for it to be the world's sacrifice
If somebody else could travel through the tunnel of life

'Cause I'm that type of guy I'll be there when you're ridin'
But I'll stay to myself
So if you see me out there with a bear we fightin'
N**** then go help the bear

'Cause I was raised up to show no fear
Cowardly hearts'll never last long here
If you ain't man enough to make s*** clear
Guaranteed you'll get blown away

'Cause I done seen the block break down tears
And I done seen the cops break my peers
Tryin' to hold on to couple more years
Tryin' not to get blown away
