STREET LIVIN' (街頭生活) - The Black Eyed Peas (黑眼豆豆)

Written by:will.i.am/apl.de.ap/Taboo/Joshua Alverez

Streets streets

 

Livin' in the streets

 

Street livin' caught in a trap

 

Guns or books sell crack or rap

 

Be like kings or be like pawns

 

They called us coons now they call us cons

 

Street niggas be packing pistols

 

Terrorists be blasting missles

 

Crips and Bloods and retail thugs

 

CIA planes bring Colombian drugs

 

Don't push me 'cause I'm close to hell

The teachers in my neighborhood can hardly spell

And compare to them prison guards get payed well

Ten years no bail is 4 years at Yale

So forget about the statue of General Lee

Because the status of blacks are generally

 

Gonna end up in some penitentiary

 

Systematically that's how they made it to be

 

Listen they derailed the soul train

And put a nightmare into every Martin Luther King

And privatized prisons are owned by the same

Slave masters that owned the slave trade game

 

And racists no longer have to be racist

'Cause niggas kill more niggas than the KKK did

 

Now every time I hear a new def jam

Niggas killing niggas like they Ku Klux Klan

 

I understand what's a ni**a to choose

Be the killer or be the dead dude in the news

 

I get it what's a ni**a to do

No education in the hood got a ni**a confused

 

Street livin' tough conditions

 

Brainwashed by the television

 

We lost in the war we live in

 

Double cross love lost no religion

 

Street livin' oh my gosh

 

Another brother got shot by the searg'

Another cop got off with no charge

If you black in the hood you at large

 

You're guilty until we prove you're innocent

If you're ivory they treat you different

 

If you're ebony they assume you're temperament

Well be vigilant and they call you militant

You'll get shot and they'll say the incident

Is 'cause you're beligerent

What a coincidence

 

Born and bred but you're still an immigrant

If you ain't dead you can see imprisonment

 

There's more niggas in the prisons than there ever slaves cotton picking

 

There's more niggas that's rotting in the prisons

Than there ever slaves cotton picking

 

So how we gon' get out the trap

 

Guns or books sell crack or rap

 

Street livin' hustle or hoops

 

Guns or books get shot or shoot

 

Street livin' ain't no rules

 

Break the law make the breakin' news

The life you choose could be the life you lose

Niggas getting stuck for the Nike shoes

 

Street livin' ain't no joke

It's a cold world better bring your coat

 

Revoke 'cause the streets are broke

And now they wanna take away our dreams and hopes

 

Street livin' no economics

 

No way out of the Reaganomics

 

Infected by the black plague new bubonic

 

No comprende we speak ebonics

 

Street livin' what's your position

You can take action or take a dick

Listen you can get f**ked by the system

 

Or you can say f**k the system
