    * Poems written by Shakur as ~ interpreted by other artists

    [2Pac Shakur]
    You try to plant somethin in the conrete, y'knowhatImean?
    If it GROW, and the and the rose petal got all kind of
    Scratches and marks, you not gon' say, "Damn, look at
    All the scratches and marks on the rose that grew from concrete"
    You gon' be like, "Damn! A rose grew from the concrete?!"
    Same thing with me, y'knahmean? I grew out of all of this
    Instead of sayin, "Damn, he did this, he did this,"
    Just be like, "DAMN! He grew out of that? He came out of that?"
    That's what they should say, y'knowhatImean?
    All the trouble to survive and make good out of the dirty, nasty
    Y'knowhahatImean unbelievable lifestyle they gave me
    I'm just tryin to make somethin..

    [Nikki Giovanni]
    When no one even cared
    The rose it grew from concrete
    Keepin all these dreams
    Provin nature's laws wrong
    It learned how to walk without havin feet
    It came from concrete

    [Spoken part]
    Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?
    Provin nature's laws wrong it learned how to walk without havin feet
    Funny it seems but, by keepin its dreams
    It, learned to breathe FRESH air
    Long live the rose that grew from concrete
    When no one else even cared
    No one else even cared..
    The rose that grew from concrete

    [Spoken part]
    Did you hear..
    Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?
    Provin nature's laws wrong
    It learned to walk without having feet
    Funny it seems but by keeping its dreams
    It learned to breathe FRESH air
    Long live the rose that grew from concrete
    When no one else, even cared

    [Nikki Giovanni]
    Keepin all these dreams
    Provin nature's laws wrong
    It learned how to walk without havin feet (to breathe the fresh air)
    It came from concrete (to breathe the fresh air)
    (to breathe the fresh air, to breathe the fresh air)

    [2Pac Shakur]
    You see you wouldn't ask why the rose that grew from the concrete
    Had damaged petals. On the contrary, we would all celebrate its
    Tenacity. We would all love it's will to reach the sun
    Well, we are the roses - this is the concrete - and these are
    My damaged petals. Don't ask me why, thank God nigga, ask me how!
    Hahahaha..
