Backstreet (David Anthony)

The air is still, the heat is rising Summer time's on the horizon Little girl with a baby crying 'Cause she's got no food to eat And it ain't that nobody's listening And it ain't that nobody cared It's just that everybody's busy Looking out for what is theirs I'm a hustler on the corner Making very little money But down the block on the other corner This nigger's down there getting paid What's he doing that I ain't doing? He got clothes and fancy things Big old car and pretty women Watch what jealousy and envy brings On the backstreet, that's where I live On the backstreets, there ain't nothing positive Now up the block comes my man, Cee Lo Say what's happening, how you feel? He don't care about no 'Cause he's known to keep it real Peep what's happening down the block? Yo hood is down, you're taking mine Cee Lo knows about his business So he runs it down one time He get keys straight from Miami Hooks it up and sells it cheap You ain't getting nothing but old from Sally So your prices are too steep But I got just the thing you need, son If you really wanna win Sunlight sparkles on his gold fronts As he makes this evil grin Take a walk on down to my crib And let me show you something new Now I got loads of guns and ammo That I bought from this white dude You could tell that I was down That I was just the man to see And he funded me and leased the cheese with Of artillery on the backstreet That's where I live on the backstreet, yeah There ain't nothing positive Now in his bedroom, it's amazing He got guns of every kind He lights a plant and we start blazing Then I picked the one that shined It's an old school Calico Semi auto dark as night It's just the thing I need To make my situation tight So he shows me how to load it Since I don't know what to do Aims toward the wall and it exploded Through this poster of Ice Cube It brought so much devastation That it's obvious to me That is just the thing To separate your soul from your body On the backstreet, that's where I live On the backstreet, yeah, there ain't nothing positive I went home and started planning For he might come up at midnight In the darkness catch him slipping Take his up, money is life I'll just catch him as he goes out To his car to make a run Now you can't front when you're confronted With the cold steel of a gun Midnight comes and I'm moving On the creep all dressed in black Wearing a ski mask so he won't know Who just put him on his back So I hid behind the bushes At the people's house next door 3 shots rang out from behind me And my blood began to pour, no What? What now, boy? Told you I was gonna get you, boy Thought you's gonna catch me sleeping in your dream Do it hurt? Let's go Everything happened in one swift action Should I just couldn't believe Cee Lo told them what was happening I been tricked up and deceived And it ain't that nobody heard it And it ain't that nobody cared It's just that everybody was busy Looking out for what was theirs city said What they call the M-C-C Now I don't really know what that means But it's what the cops called me They don't care what happens to me They don't miss me on the beat All they know is that there's one less nigger Hanging on the backstreet where I used to live On the backstreet, there ain't nothing, nothing The choices you make can make or break you The choices you make can make or break you The choices you make can make or break you The choices you make can make or break you
