Lyrics:

[Intro: Val Young] Street life don’t you let it get ya down
Street life don’t you let it run you around
Street life don’t you let it get ya down
Street life don’t you let it run you around

[Prince Ital Joe] Yes, this one dedicated to my bredrin Snoop Dogg
Glad to see you move baby, bigger
Yeah
Snoop dogg the militant soulja
Mystical article holder
Tell the D.A. assistant
Snoop well important
We have to light up the blunt
Back at the studio, we happy again
District attorney, bow your head in shame
Can’t keep a good man down
They punch in the case and they rule it down
When all them suit a come, all better duck, dive, for cover, and run
Nigga daz thing will be blasting, just penetrate, and your head will be bumpin
Free again, yes him free again
Snoop dogg me bredren and free again
Free again, yes him free again
Blessed is the man that love the children
The sun rise drop in the east but it set in the west
Babylon dont test
Violent men, then I go reap them mon
Humble and wise we have to keep on the drum
God is the greatest power in the known universe
Who jah bless, no man curse
When I was a youth I used to smoke sessimilla in the paper
Come follow me, come follow me
Long time ago I smoke in the challawah
Oh lawd
Snoop dogg the militant soulja
Mystical article holder
Tell the D.A. assistant Snoop well important
We have to light up the blunt
Rough and ready reggae hip hop steady
We no afraid of dick, tom, and harry
Like a big bull we fierce when it come to war
They dont know what they fighting for
Who fa’ get bigger, get bigger
Who fa’ get smaller, get smaller
Dont test the criminal corrupt. or your life trouble will disrupt
Snoop dogg the militant soulja
Mystical article holder
Nigga daz thing will be blastin
Just penetrate and your head will be bumpin
Free again, yes him free again
Snoop dogg me bredren and free again
Free again, yes him free again
Snoop dogg me bredren and free again

[Snoop] Hm
Since I was young I grew up in the street life
Times get hard for a gangsta in the street life
See ain’t no tellin what my life must be like
As a gangsta growin up in the street life

Since I was young I grew up in the street life
Times get hard for a nigga in the street life
See ain’t no tellin what my life might be like
For a nigga growin up in the street life

You can’t tell me shit, about these streets homie
I done seen it and done it, livin real from the phonies
Out for the money, homies maintain there composure
Since kids we was always sellin dope, by the boulders
Now I’m a scolder muthafucka for the chips
Wanna dip to trip
On G.P. straight for dp.
Flip the script and came equipped
Got some ridahs who got my back
Snoop Corleone, I’m always down to jack
I jack for instant thought, talkin walk the walk
Niggas who oppose automatically get stomped
Terrorizing the neighborhood niggas
Gaining they grab me
Me, Style, Tye and Daz, mashin for the set
Rest in peace to deceased homeboyz who aint alive
Street Life took him over now he forced to ride
Slippin and slidin, bouncin counting my ends
To be straight, times is rough for these dayz
Niggas is crazy, but to fear is much greater
The innovator, dominator
Soul creater, out for the papers

[Val Young] Street life don’t you let it get ya down
Street life don’t you let it run you around
Street life don’t you let it get ya down
Street life don’t you let it run you around

[Snoop] Since I was young I grew up in the street life
Times get hard for a gangsta in the street life
See ain’t no tellin what my life must be like
As a gangsta growin up in the street life

Since I was young I grew up in the street life
Times get hard for a nigga in the street life
See ain’t no tellin what my life might be like
As a nigga growin up in the street life

[Makaveli] Haha
Bustin and bailin, thug addicted to drug sellin keys
Got me riskin the street livin, catchin felonies
How many niggaz wanna see me gone?
You playa haterz is bitches who hate to see a nigga hold his own
Forever ballin, no never fallin
Live my life as a thug nigga, now can you hear the liquor callin
When we blaze, niggaz is blinded
My competition minimal so I lives a criminal minded, nigga
Can you hear me wave yo’ pistols in the sky
Roll a fat-ass blunt, bump this shit
I bet’ll get you high
They wonder why I’m hard to kill, hard to let it go
How can I have fear?
All my peers live on Death Row (for life)
Don Makaveli, 45, tucked next to my belly
Conversating wit my nigga Dogg, lyrics so deadly
When ya come to get me bring an army
An Outlaw thug motherfucker, who can harm me, heh
Bomb these bitches, leave the track smokin
Cause real Bad Boy killaz need the gat smokin
Ha ha, open ya eyes and understand this
Murder ain’t fair these motherfuckers doin scandalous
Niggaz don’t wanna see me hot with my glock cocked
Drinkin on Henn’, screamin fuck the world this is the end
In the street life

[Snoop + Makaveli] Since I was young I grew up in the street life
Times get hard for a nigga in the street life
Ain’t no tellin what my life might see like
As a gangsta growin up in the street life

Since I was young I grew up in the street life
Times get hard for a gangsta in the street life
See ain’t no tellin what my life might be like
As a gangsta growin up in the street life

Ain’t no tellin what we all might be like
In the land of the lost of the street life
Ain’t no tellin what we all might be like
In the land of the lost of the street life

What it C like, what it B like
Hm, growin up in the street life
What it C like, what it B like
Growin up in the street life

We on the eastside, we on the eastcoast, nigga
You fin that one hard

What it C like, what it might B like
Growin up in the street life
What it B like, what it C like

Aint no G up in my future, nigga
Ain’t no G up in my future
