I Wish (Remix) (to The Homies That We Lost) - R. Kelly feat Boo, Gotti

[R.Kelly talking]
Yo what up, my n_gga
You know I was in the hood
I just thought I'd stop by
Holler at you for a minute
Pour out a little liquor or something

[Verse 1-R.Kelly]
N_gga, we done been through a lot of sh_t together
From running these streets to being down for whatever
And now that you're gone I got a whole lot of sh_t to tell you
Things I should've said way back when we was younger
Remember when we used to roll hand in hand
And now I'm tripping on how I really miss you, man
And remember when you and me would say
We'd get up out this hood and everything would be okay
It's all good now (My n_gga)
We out the hood now (Mmm)
We had the same ideas, but not the same careers
We shared the same old laugh, and now the same tears
You were my homie, my sconey, my Roni
My n_gga and never placed no b_tch before me
Man, I swear to God I love you for that sh_t
Why'd you have to get hit
Where was I, what time was it
You were supposed to get older with me
On stage, hands on shoulders with me
Copping them Range Rovers with me
Sitting onthangs and smoking trees
And if it wasn't for the will that God had made
I'd turn back the hands of time and take your place
Sitting here sipping on this Hennessy
Just thinking about how much you meant to me (My n_gga)
Even when you're gone you will always be my n_gga
When you went home I'm still missing you, my n_gga
I'm feeling like the timing was wrong, my n_gga
I know you're smiling down saying carry on, my n_gga
Sometimes my nights can get long, my n_gga
Sometimes I feel God did me wrong, my n_gga
So I had to write a song, my n_gga
Just to let you know that you're still my n_gga

I wish, I wish, I wish (Oh I)
I wish, I wish, I wish

[Verse 2-R.Kelly]
Little son is looking at me like, 'Where is my daddy?'
And your 13-year old daughter is mad 'cause she understands
Promised your mama I'd take care of the family
But she's so hurt, she turns away my helping hands
Damn, I wish your ass was here, my n_gga
To grow that gray beard and smoke that cigar, my n_gga
And we would talk about you getting up out this game
And you would tell me how it keeps calling you name
(We used to ride-ride-ride)
Never afraid to (Die-die-die)
But sometimes we (Cry-cry-cry)

Asking the Lord (Why-why-why)
They're tearing down these projects
We were homies for like 20 thug years
Sat in church and cried the same thug tears
You remember when Vibe World Premier
How we used to share the same old gear
And remember when you and me would say
We'd get up out this hood and everything would be okay
(It's all good now) My n_gga
We out the hood now
It's so easy for folks to say, 'Rob, just live on'
When I'm dying every second that you're gone
Nevertheless I try my best to be strong
Hoping you said your prayers before you went on home
When we stood on these blocks and just shot the breeze
We'd slapbox dead in the middle of streets
And if a fight broke out, you would take up for me
You're all I have left of these ghetto memories


Uh, uh, yo dog, I can't explain how I miss you
We stayed together, copping cane, poppin pistols
I miss you most
Putting the doo rag over your bean head
Even out the hood on the scene you brag (whoa)
Coming up off the fiends for bags
Running up out the cleaners, drag
You was the closest n_gga I had
Look how we stayed aces
Hustled, made big faces
I wish we could trade places
F**k giving you ice, I'd rather give you life
And the thigns that I had, I'd give you twice (Oh yeah)

So what the deal, my n_gga, I know you holding it down
If you could see me you would say I'm talking soft right now
But it's hard for me to say when I'ma seee you again
And I know it's f**ked up, I gotta talk through this pen
But you're died for the love of the dough
The love of the block, 16 you was running the spot
Boy, your mama used to hate how we stood on the curb
Hanging with wild thug n_ggas, smoking the herb (Mmm, hmm, hmm)
I'm gonna keep pouring this liquor and that's my word
This here is for n_ggas that be flipping them birds
(Oh) Word up!

Even though you know you will always be my n_gga
Even though you're gone you will also be my n_gga
I'm feeling like the time when I'm high, my n_gga
I'm feeling like the time
I'm strung out, saying 'Radio, please don't take the n_gga out
this song'
Let it play on, go on, on
So I had to write this song, my n_gga
Just to let you know that you're still my n_gga
