In this life [Dj..
P] "I go all out" - "Y'knahmsayin "?[Verse

One Guru]: From
New York to Cali it remains the same B
h***ni z***always wanna go against the grain The
strong will survive the, weak shall perish Y'all
need more courage I, keep y'all nourished Get
in line I, let you know right now You
need to slow right down or you get blown right now From
what I see it's systematic how we push to addicts Demographics
make the street life hell or drastic In
the hood we see oppressive genocide Cause
if it's on it's on you, know at least 10 men'll ride But
on the other side corruption, runs deep I'm
aware of the conspiricies discussion, is brief They're
building more prisons spendin, less on schools On
the block Smith & Wess-ons and Teflons rule It's
hard to escape it certain, laws are sacred In
this life my n anusit's, mad hard to make it [Chorus

In this life [Dogg]..
Money is key [Dogg]
And everybody you see ain't what they claim to be [Guru]
In this life [Dogg]..
I try to do right [Dogg]
I live a treacherous life I, know I ain't right mm, [Guru]
In this life [Dogg]..
You got to keep on [Dogg]
You got to be strong you, got to hold on [Guru]
In this life heh, I, come in peace [Guru]
But still yo I, come from the streets [Verse

Two Snoop: Dogg] This
one's for my sons and my lil' daughter Peace
to jmj and my n anusHeadquarters A
+Gangstarr+ with a gangster on, a mission World
+Premier+ limited, edition My
mind keeps driftin cause I haven't had a spliff in A
long time I'm, doin fine I, feel teriffic I
bop up the street C-walk, to the beat It's
cold outdoors so, I got to keep some heat I
never know when a cutthroat gon' try to test me Disrespect
me things, could get messy Yes
he shoot, a good game like, James I
mean Jesse watch, out n anusheavens, to Betsies The
big drum beater With
a car full of heaters and some fly senoritas In
some Stacy's or some Chucks cause, I gotsta keep it G'd up Run
up on the Dogg man you bound to get beat up [Chorus

In this life (ohhh.. this, life I'm, tryin to make it better) [Dj
P] "You better wake up" [Guru]
In this life (I.. won't have to struggle no mo' no, I won't) [Dj
P] "R-R-Remember this" [Guru]
In this life (ohhh.. this, life this, life) [Dj
P] "S-S-Survival of the fittest" - Nas> [Guru]
In this life (tryin.. to make it better yes, I am) [Outro

Uncle: Reo] Ooooohhh
talkin, bout this life Whoahhhohhhhhhhhhh
this, life this, life {.. fades*out }*
