Back in The Days - Trick Daddy

Back in the days
It wasn't no AIDS
It wasn't no AK's
More afros than braids
Wasn't nuttin for a boy to get a straight fade
But not no mo
N_ggaz done twist up the fro
Let it lock and grow
Quick to go to gunplay bout that fro
N_gga you don't know

And I'm thinkin bout when
Round the time i was ten
And way before the pen
The worst thing i ever remember seeing
Was a boy get his whole head bashed in
But now they gettin blown off
Whole chest torn off
Whole block roped off
Two clips in his house for f_ckin round
Runnin off at his damn mouth
Yep back in the days it wadn't bout fame
And it wudn't bout a name
Plus it wudn't no thang
To kill a n_gga and do the rest of ya life in the chain gang
But na sh_t done changed
And I know it seem strange
But I'm a maintain
So I'm a stack my flow and say "f_ck you hoes"
stay the f_ck out the chain gang


Some hoes no shame
Other hoes play games
See they'll f_ck ya for the fame
And when the heat is on and they cant hang
Theyll give them crackers yo name
Thell say it under oath
And swear to tell the truth
Run down what ya do
How ya clown wit ya crew
Along with that a list of sh_t like who f_cked in who house
Tell a ho about ya spot
Where ya threw away the glock
But every b_tch that ya shot
Every key that ya caught
And every car that ya drop
The ninety-seven drop tops
And them Carolina trips
And then they grill you the flip
Time and date when ya dip
Every deal you done dealt
And every crib you done built
With no muthaf_ckin guilt
Back in tha days
It wudn't none a this
Ya couldn't pay a b_tch to snitch
It just goes to show that
F_ck n_ggaz and slimy hoes make the world flip the script


See back in the days
All pimps got paid
And all hoes got slayed
Alot a money got saved
And every playa had it made
In Dade
We was slayed before then
Boys was made before then
Way before them
Raisin poor men
With no choice
Way before them
But na sh_t done changed
I mean a n_gga done came
Ya done took our name
We done peeped yall game
Ya ovalooked our pain
Man, and we aint tryin to be friends
Ya wudn't tryin back then
Had a problem with my skin
Got together with ya clan
And send a young poor black man
Straight to the pen
Ya had beef with the blacks
But na the blacks got the gats
So if a cracker talk slick his ass gon get whacked
And you can bet that
See n_gga
Back in the days
I was young and afraid
So dumb in a way
I was trapped in a maze
So hey
