Freddie McGregor – Brandy lyrics
[Featuring Pimp see Silkk The Shocker]

I want ya'll to play this at funerals in the hood.

Til all this black on black crime stop.

Some say the blind lead the blind.

But in the ghetto you never know

When it's gon be yo time.

[Sons of Funk Mo B. Dick O'dell]

Sittin at the ghetto thinkin bout

All my homies passed away (uuunnnggghhh!)

Candy painted cadillacs and triple gold

That's how me and my boys rolled

How could it be?

Somebody took my boy from me

My best friend's gone

And I'm so all alone

I really miss my homies

Even though they gone away

I know you in a better place

And I hope to see ya soon someday

[Master P]

I used to hang with my boy even slang with my boy

Used to bang with my boy, goddam I miss my boy

We started out youngstas in the park throwin birds

In your hearse, damn it's sad to see my nigga in the dirt

The game got me workin, got me perkin, never jerkin

Still blowin dolja fo ya cause I know you up there workin

Ya little baby's cool and ya baby's mama straight

But today's a sad day to see the t-shirt with ya face

From the cradle to the grave, from the streets we used to fall

In the park you liked to ball, put yo name upon the wall

In the projects you's a legend on the street you was a star

But it's sad to see my homeboy ridin in that black car

A lotta soldiers done died, a lotta mothers done cried

You done took yo piece of the pie but you was too young to retire

Why soldiers ride for yo name leave it vain

Some Gs never change, damn they killed you for some change

Smile for my homie Kevin Miller my boy Randall

The ghetto persons that lost they loved ones to these ghetto scandals

Take a minute to smile for the dead (uuunnnggghhh!)

Smile for the dead (RIP 2Pac, Makaveli)

All my homies who done made it to the crossroads

(Biggie Smalls)

[Sons, Mo B. O'dell]

How could it be?

Somebody took my boy from me

(It's like I can't believe you gone)

My best friend's gone

(Sometimes I feel like I can't go on)

And I'm so all alone

(Everytime I see something you done left

I really miss my homies

(It just remind me, more and more of you, dawg)

Even though they gone away

(I just keep reminiscin)

I know you in a better place

(Cause I know you alright)

And I hope to see ya soon someday

(And I keep smilin, knowin I'm a see you in the crossroads]

[Pimp C]

We used to grip on the grain and flip them candy toys

But I'd give up all that bullshit if I could get back my boy

Off in the club smokin weed til 3, hollerin at the hoes

Spendin $4000 on me on gators and clothes

When I turned to rap, he had to chase the game

Nigga told me, "see, leave that dope, cause rappin is yo thang"

I ain't gone even lie, some nights I ride and cry

Wonderin why the real niggas always the ones to die

So I just smoke my weed and try to clear my mind

I wish that I had the power to turn back the hands of time

I wonder if there's a heaven up there for real Gs

For all the niggas in the game that be sellin ki's

I keep my memories, try to keep my head strong

But baby it's hard to be strong, when yo main homie gone

[Sons, Mo B. O'dell]

Even though you gone away

(Even though you gone, you ain't never gon be forgotten)

I know you in a better place

(Cause as long as I'm here

You gon live through me and other TRU playas)

I really miss my homies

Even though they gone away

I know you in a better place

And I hope to see ya soon someday


I'm just sittin here dazed thinkin bout all the times we had

Thinkin the past, some was good and some was bad

Remember Dante?

It was a group of us, just a group of five

Now three dead, one in jail, it seem right now I'm the only one alive

To all my soldiers before me, may ya'll rest in peace

When He took three, took my soul, just the bodies

He at the crossroads guide us out to the rest of me

Wishin I could rewind time like demos

Me and you gettin girls, writin down numbers like memos

Makin million dollar bets, makin all our money stretch like limos

Even though I smile, it's sad, but they say gangstas can't cry

But if I close my eyes and visualize me together

Then I suddenly want to smile

To see you laid down when it's yo time, when your time was up

You never seen your child, but he's here to remind us

Even though you was wrong, I never could belive that that was true

You was with me forever, you could check my rest in peace tattoos

See me and see and P forever gon be ridin and thuggin

Rest in peace to all the ones that didn't make it

And rest in peace to my brother

We gon miss you

(I love these fools)

I know you in a better place

(Every time I get on my knees)

And I hope to see ya soon someday

(I pray for you, I'm glad you in a better place

I hope I see ya soon, ain't no more killin

Ain't no more fights, and ain't no more tears)
