Young Niggaz - 2Pac

I wanna dedicate this one to Robert 'Yummy' Sanderford
and all other lil' young n_ggaz that's in a rush to be gangstas

As a young n_gga, I'm almost ?swellin? in the wind
Give anythang, to be that innocent again, when I was ten
I didn't bang but I was hangin with the homies
tell them n_ggaz started slangin that they don't know me
I got my hustle on, learned to ignore what couldn't pay me
Lately I've been tryin to make a bill-ion, can you play me
with that jealousy they need to miss me, don't sweat me
If them cowards really want me, come get me, and even I
someday will die but I'm cautious, I'm fin' to ride
Put down the top, now we flossin
Hit the freeway, let the wind blow, drop the window
Workin with a twenty sack of indo, feelin good
Stop through the hood, grab the young thugs
And I can't help but reminisce back when we slung drugs, know it's bad
but all we had was our hopes and dreams
Couldn't see unless we learned to slang dope to fiends
as young n_ggaz

He's the kind of G like everybody knows
As a young n_gga
He's always G'd up, from head to toe
My memories as a young n_gga
Always got it blown like Al Capone
Young n_gga
He's the downest G I've ever known

Back in Junior High, when we was barely gettin by, when daddy died
That's when my momma started gettin high
My neighborhood was full of drivebys, couldn't survive
All our homies livin short lives, I couldn't cry
Told my momma if I did die, just put a blunt in my casket
let me get my dead homies high
Come follow me throughout my history, it's just
_Me Against the World_ stuck in misery; as a young n_gga
My only thing was to be paid
Life full of riches avoid snitched cause they shady, back in the days
We always found the time to play,
but that's before they taught them gangbangers how to spray
Not just L.A., but in the Bay and in Chicago and even St. Louis
Every stadium that I go, when will they change?
Stuck in the game like a dumb n_gga
Remember how it was, to be a young n_gga

He's the kind of G like everybody knows
As a young n_gga
He's always G'd up, from head to toe
My memories as a young n_gga
Always got it blown like Al Capone
Young n_gga
He's the downest G I've ever known

I'm tellin you..
.. to be young, have your brains and have every ? and all that
Yo, y'all n_ggaz don't know how good you really do got it
Muh'f_ckers need to just calm down
and peep what the f_ck they wanna do for the rest of the life
'Fore you end your life before you BEGIN your life
You dumb n_gga

Now that I'm grown, I got my mind on bein somethin
Don't wanna be another statistic, out here doin nuttin
Tryin to maintain in this dirty game, keep it real
and I will even if it kills me, my young n_ggaz
break away from these dumb n_ggaz
Put down the guns and have some fun n_gga, the rest'll come n_gga
Fame is a fast thang, that gangbangin
puttin n_ggaz in a casket, murdered for hangin
at the wrong place at the wrong time, no longer livin
Cause he threw up the wrong sign, and every day
I watch the murder rate increases, and even worse
the epidemic and diseases, what is the future?
The projects lookin hopeless, where
more and more borhters givin up and don't care
Sometimes I hate when brothers act up, I hit the weed
and I proceed to blow the track up, for young n_ggaz

He's the kind of G like everybody knows
For these young n_ggaz
He's always G'd up, from head to toe
My memories as a young n_gga
He always got it blown like Al Capone
Take it slow n_gga, it's for the young n_ggaz
He's the downest G I've ever known
As a young n_gga

He's the kind of G like everybody knows
He's always G'd up, from head to toe
Memories as a young n_gga
He always got it blown like Al Capone
He's the downest G I've ever known
['Pac talking overlaps singing last four lines]
This go out to the young thugs, the have-nots (you know)
Little bad motherf_ckers from the block (that's right)
Them n_ggaz that's thirteen and fourteen
Drivin Cadillacs, Benzes and sh_t (I see you boy)
Young motherf_ckin hustlers (make that money boy)
Stay strong n_gga
You could be a f_ckin accountant, not a dope dealer
youknowhatI'msayin? (Go to school n_gga, go to school)
F_ck around and, you pimpin out here
You could be a lawyer (really doe)
N_ggaz gotta get they priorities straight
(Don't see Johnny Cochran out in this motherf_cker)
Really doe.. young n_ggaz.. little RahRah
(sup n_gga) Especially my little cousins don't be no dumb guy
(Don't be a dumb n_gga, listen, young n_ggaz)
