I Wonder If Heaven Got A Ghetto (Original and Hip-Hop Version) - 2Pac

I was raised, the little young n_gga doin bad sh_t
Talk much sh_t cause I never had sh_t
I could remember being whupped in class
And if I didn't pass mama whupped my ass
Was it my fault papa didn't plan it out
Broke out left me to be the man of the house
I couldn't take it, had to make a profit
Down the block, got a glock, and I clock grip
Makin G's was my mission
Movin enough of this sh_t to get my mama out the kitchen and
why must I sock a fella, just to live large like Rockefeller
First you didn't give a f_ck, but you're learnin now
If you don't respect the town then we'll burn you down
God damn it's a motherf_ckin riot
Black people only hate police so don't try it
If you're not from the town then don't pass through
Cause some O.G. fools might blast you
It ain't right but it's long overdue
We can't have peace til the n_ggaz get a piece too
I want G's so you label me a criminal
And if I die, I wonder if heaven got a ghetto


[Verse Two: 2Pac]

Here on Earth, tell me what's a black life worth
A bottle of juice is no excuse, the truth hurts
And even when you take the sh_t
Move counties get a lawyer you can shake the sh_t
Ask Rodney, LaTasha, and many more
It's been goin on for years, there's plenty more
When they ask me, when will the violence cease?
When your troops stop shootin n_ggaz down in the street
N_ggaz had enough time to make a difference
Bear witness, own our own business
Word to God cause it's hard tryin to make ends meet
First we couldn't afford sh_t now everything's free
so we loot, please don't shoot when you see
I'm takin from the, cause for years they would take it from me
Now the tables have turned around
You didn't listen, until the n_ggaz burned it down
And now Bush can't stop the hit
Predicted the sh_t, in 2Pacalypse
And for once I was down with n_ggaz, felt good
in the hood bein around the n_ggaz, yeah
And for the first time everybody let go
And the streets is death row, I wonder if heaven got a ghetto


[Verse Three: 2Pac]

I see no changes, all I see is racist faces
Misplaced hate makes disgrace to races
We under I wonder what it take to make this
one better place, let's erase the wait state
Take the evil out the people they'll be acting right
Cause both black and white are smokin crack tonight
And only time we deal is when we kill each other
It takes skill to be real, time to heal each other
And though it seems heaven-sent
We ain't ready, to have a black President, huh
It ain't a secret don't conceal the fact
The penitentiary's packed, and it's filled with blacks
I wake up in the morning and I ask myself
Is life worth living should I blast myself
I'm tired of being poor and even worse I'm black
My stomach hurts so I'm lookin for a purse to snatch
Cops give a damn about a ne-gro
Pull a trigger kill a nigger he's a hero
Mo' n_gga mo' n_gga mo' n_ggaz
I'd rather be dead than a po' n_gga
Let the Lord judge the criminals
If I die, I wonder if heaven got a ghetto

[Chorus (to :27 from fade)]

Just think, if n_ggaz decide to retaliate
(Soldier in the house)
I wonder if heaven got a ghetto [4X to fade]
