Chorus:
Hide from the lights
I'm the... dream
(Gangsta kids what would do?)
When I was seventeen
(Guess the dream is true, huh?)
Yeah, what's up? It's... world baby, it's...

Chorus:
I was on my grind when I was 17
The only... thing for the stack was the 17
Took a rode trip, came back had me seven knees
And when I turn 18 remind me about 17s
Yeah, oh! Take them back when I was 17
I had a caught to see what's extra clean
Always thugging, always on the scene
The world is too bad, needs some big achieve

I gotta get it, I want it, I gotta have it
Tie knots in the bag and I'm right back at it
Yeah, 14 grands in my...
The deal... so who's ready to have it?
Deal for this fast money I'm addicted
You get me out the house, I gotta... the game
Guess momma don't love me no more
Since she might not even let me use the oven no more
One twenty five... on the couch, he in the comma
And I swear the scene is... than the avalanche
Came back the extra 15, did the... dance
My grandma keep telling me I need some help
But I keep telling her that I need someone
Caught this with the... got the tune on
Blow me in the heart, bitch I got me two shots.

Chorus:
I was on my grind when I was 17
The only... thing for the stack was the 17
Took a rode trip, came back had me seven knees
And when I turn 18 remind me about 17s
Yeah, oh! Take them back when I was 17
I had a caught to see what's extra clean
Always thugging, always on the scene
The world is too bad, needs some big achieve

At 17 I had a night with 17 shots
East 17, five 17 block
... to the left whole hood claim low
Shout my niggas from Valley Bronx to Concord
Nigga need to play ball, class I took the day off
Try about some new days hope I get this state off
Fully automatic shooters, call...
Before I ever see 17 I bust the KO
And my homie got me blown in the worst way
17 drams for my 17 birthday
In the school hall we was getting charity
1700 in my... when I was 17

Chorus:
I was on my grind when I was 17
The only... thing for the stack was the 17
Took a rode trip, came back had me seven knees
And when I turn 18 remind me about 17s
Yeah, oh! Take them back when I was 17
I had a caught to see what's extra clean
Always thugging, always on the scene
The world is too bad, needs some big achieve

17... the clean team
Open this full... put on everything
Some lil niggas about their frost skin
Got my first... front punch from the Africans
Had them... still fatting
Had them stashed in the old spice can that I was sleeping...
Went from... to four...
... with the black vans and the...
Now we're drinking milk throwing up...
... for the cash
Just a lil nigga trying to come up for some green bag

Chorus:
I was on my grind when I was 17
The only... thing for the stack was the 17
Took a rode trip, came back had me seven knees
And when I turn 18 remind me about 17s
Yeah, oh! Take them back when I was 17
I had a caught to see what's extra clean
Always thugging, always on the scene
The world is too bad, needs some big achieve
