Who We Be Lyrics

Who We Be - DMX

Uhh yeah

Another one of those - this is for my ni**a Q - down to earth joints

Rest in peace baby you're not for me dawg

That's how many that don't know they knew I could do it

 

This goes out to my ni**a Q - rest in peace baby

 

They still ain't ready

 

What they don't know is

The b******t the drama (uhh) the guns the armour (what )

The city the farmer the babies the mama (what )

The projects the drugs (uhh ) the children the thugs

(uhh ) The tears the hugs the love the slugs (c'mon )

The funerals the wakes the churches the coffins (uhh )

The heartbroken mothers it happens too often (why )

The problems the things we use to solve 'em (what )

Yonkers the Bronx (uhh ) Brooklyn Harlem (c'mon )

The hurt the pain the dirt the rain (uhh )

The jerk the fame the work the game (uhh )

The friends the foes the Benz the hoes (what )

The studios the shows comes and it goes (c'mon )

The jealousy the envy the phony the friendly (uh-huh )

The one that gave 'em the slugs the one that put 'em in me

(whoo ) The snakes the grass too long to see (uhh uhh )

The lawnmower sittin right next to the tree (c'mon )

They don't knooow who we beee

They don't knooow who we beee

They don't knooow who we beee

They don't knooow who we beee

What we seeing is

The streets the cops the system harrassment (uh-huh)

The options get shot go to jail or getcha a** kicked

(aight) The lawyers the part they are of the puzzle (uh-huh)

The release the warning "Try not to get in trouble" (damn )

The snitches the odds (uhh) probation parole (what )

The new charge the bail the warrant the hole (damn )

The cell the bus the ride up North (uh-huh)

The greens the boots the yard these hearts (uhh )

The fightin the stabbin the pullin the grabbin (what )

The riot squad with the captain nobody knows what happened

(what ) The two years in a box revenge the plots (uhh )

The twenty-three hours that's locked the one hour that's not

(uhh ) The silence the dark the mind so fragile (aight )

The wish that the streets would have took you when they had you

(damn) The days the months the years dispair

 

One night on my knees here it comes the prayer

They don't knooow who we beee

They don't knooow who we beee

They don't knooow who we beee

They don't knooow who we beee

This here is all about

My wife my kids (uh-huh) the life that I live (uh-huh)

Through the night I was his (uh-huh) it was right but I did

(uh-huh) My ups and downs (uhh) my slips my falls (uhh)

My trials and tribulations (uhh) my heart my balls (uhh)

My mother my father I love 'em I hate 'em (uhh )

Wish God I didn't have 'em but I'm glad that he made 'em

(uhh ) The roaches the rats the strays the cats (what what )

The guns knives and bats everytime we scrap

The hustlin the dealin the robbin the stealin (uhh )

The sh*t hit the ceilin little boy with no feelin's

(damn) The frustration rage trapped inside a cage

Got beatin's 'til the age I carried a twelve gauge

(aight ) Somebody stop me (please ) somebody come and get me

(what ) Little did I know that the Lord was ridin with me

The dark the light (uhh) my heart (uhh) the fight (uhh)

The wrong (uhh ) the right (uhh ) it's gone (uhh ) aight

They don't knooow who we beee

They don't knooow who we beee

They don't knooow who we beee

They don't knooow who we beee

They don't knooow who we beee

They don't knooow who we beee

Man listen

 

These motherf**kers don't know who we are

They don't know

They couldn't possibly f**kin know dawg

 

That's from the heart
