Hey baby
This is my life yeah

[Chorus:]
This is my life
Ohhh
This is life
Baby ohhh this is my life

[Verse 1:]
January 3, 1986
Busting out for the fix
Took my first steps
No clue at how physical life gets
Round uptown Calio projects
Whole life stopped when my daddy got popped
One head shot he was dead on the spot
Now I'm running around with my stomach in knots
Knowing that memories is all I got

[Hook:]
Ohh nobody knows about the strugglin I been through
That's why I hustle like I do
I gotta provide for my people
Yeah
And nigga I done worked too hard
I came way too far to lose
Can't stay still gotta stay on the move
Live everyday with a point to prove

[Chorus: 2x]

[Verse 2:]
Mama jumped ship hoping shit gone change
Now I'm A-Town bound nigga down for the grain
I'm feeling like I'm losin my sane
Cause nigga's round me been usin cocaine
Now my dreams of fortune and fame won't be slain
Just gotta except that I'm on the road that was chose from above
Nigga love is pain

[Hook]
[Chorus: 2x]

[Verse 3:]
I go and know you been waiting for a long time
Shorty keep a strong mind
Never give up the sun gon shine
See I'm where I belong now yeah
Jus never ever lose perspective
Cause if the shit hits the fan and times get hectic
I'll fall to my knees and thank god that I'm blessed with
The strength to hold on and deliver the message

So now u know bout the strugglin i been through
Why i'm hustlin like i do
I gotta provide for my people yea
& shorty i done worked too hard
Came too far to lose
INC we on the move
Gotti told me young nigga do what you do


Hook(x2)
