Lyrics:

[Intro – 2PAC]

Fucking liars…

Y’all ain’t never just tripped and pictured
Just looked at the whole situation
Cause once you look at it
You know (You really do)
They don’t give a fuck about us
They don’t give a fuck about us
They don’t give a fuck about us

[Chorus – 2PAC]

If I choose to ride (hahaha, yeah)
Thuggin’ till the day I die
Nobody gives a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in they children’s eyes
Now they give a fuck about us

[2PAC]

Some say niggaz is hardheaded cause we love to trick
Equipped with game so we bang with this thuggish shit
I see ya try to hide hoping that nobody don’t notice
You must always remember you’re still a member of the hopeless
See you’re black like me
So you snap like me
When these devils try to plot
Trap our young black seeds, look it
Coppers as crooked as the niggaz they chasing
Looking for role models
Our father figures is basin’
Some say expect illuminati
Take my body to sleep
Niggaz at the party with they shotties just as rowdy as me
Before I flee computer chips, I gotta deal with brothers flipping
I don’t see no devils bleeding only black blood dripping
We can change, Whatcha now say?
I’m watching niggaz work they lives out, without pay
Whatever it takes to switch places with the bustas on top
I’m busting shots make the world stop
They don’t give a fuck about us

[Chorus – 2PAC]

Now if I choose to ride
Thuggin’ till the day I die
Cause they don’t give a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in they children’s eyes
Now they give a fuck about us
If I choose to ride
Thuggin’ till the day I die
Nobody gives a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in they children’s eyes
Now they give a fuck about us

[2PAC]

I’m seeing it clearer
Hatin’ the picture in the mirror
They claim we inferior
So why the fuck these devils fear ya?
I’m watching my nation die
Genocide the cause
Expect a bloodbath
The aftermath is y’alls
I told you last album
We need help cause we dying
Give us a chance
Help us advance, cause we trying
Ignored my whole plea
Watching us in disgust
Then they dead when my guns bust
They don’t give a fuck about us

[Chorus – 2PAC]

Now if I choose to ride
Thuggin’ till the day I die
Nobody gives a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in they children’s eyes
Now they give a fuck about us
If I choose to ride
Thuggin’ till the day I die
Nobody gives a fuck about us
But when I start to rise
A hero in they children’s eyes
Now they give a fuck about us

[Chorus/Outro – 2PAC]

Now if I choose to ride
Thuggin’ till the day I die
They don’t give a fuck about us
But while we kickin rhymes
Gettin into they childrens minds
Now they give a fuck about us
They wanna see us die
They kick us every time we try
Cause they don’t give a fuck about us
So while I’m gettin high
I’m watchin as the world goes by
Cause they don’t give a fuck about us
Now if I choose to ride (If I choose to ride)
Thuggin’ till the day I die (till the day I die)
They don’t give a fuck about us
But while we kickin’ rhymes (while we kickin’ rhymes)
Gettin’ into they childrens minds (Gettin’ into they childrens minds)
Now they give a fuck about us
They wanna see us die (they wanna see us die)
They kick us every time we try (everytime we try)
Cause they don’t give a fuck about us
But while we gettin high (Yeah my niggaz gettin’ high)
Watchin’ as the world goes by
Cause they don’t give a fuck about us
Rise (Rise my nation)
Riiiise (Riiiise)
They don’t give a fuck about us
Riiise! (Get y’all asses on the right path, nigga)
Rise!
Cause they don’t give a fuck about us
Get’cha money, nigga get’cha MONEY!!
(Who the fuck you think „us“ is?)
