    Lyrics

    One time

    SWAT's, drop-tops and 'gnac
    Lil-bitty killas on the block, cock back the gat
    Can't a day go by, one of these villains don't die
    Won't try to fight this feelin', this concrete thang
    It thrillin' niggas, it's killin' for nothin'
    Meanin', niggas is livin' for less, I guess
    That I'm bring it to ya like it I S, the rest your 'sposed to know
    See crime, that get'cha time, to the do' slick

    When you hit 'em, get 'em
    But keep yo' name up out they system
    'Cuz that there could sho' fuck up the rhythm of thangs
    Called up, charge it to the game
    No your sittin' downtown tryin' to explain
    Simple-n-plain, but they ain't finna be listenin'
    You pre-trial detain to yo' co-sentencing
    (Uh huh)
    This situation keep ya tied in a knot
    Lord have mercy on the SWAT's

    Lord have mercy on me
    This is just how it's gone be
    Niggas dying daily on them same corner that pay me
    But that's the only chain I'm gon' see

    Lord have mercy, on me
    I'm doin' the best that I can
    But it's hard in my front yard
    It's do or die out here, ya understand?

    I done seen these same, lil-bitty niggas squeeze
    Lil-bitty triggers, now these
    (Uh huh)
    Lil-bitty niggas is, lil-bitty killers
    (Uh huh)
    Couldn'ta been no more than thirteen
    (Uh unh)
    Supplyin' fiends, shorties strictly stressin' dirty
    (What?)

    I sit on the porch and watch 'em flee from the police
    But the nighttime blind, and ain't no eyes on the streets
    (Shh)
    First law of the concrete
    Better, never ever repeat, nothin' ya seen
    (Uh unh)
    He said he had to make a killin'
    (Uh huh)
    That's how it go whodi, ride and take a livin' fo' sho'

    He say he kill and kill again, he'll kick in the do'
    (Yeah)
    Keep the lick, he trick a milli into mo'
    (Yeah)
    Nobody wit' him, he so low, when he creep through
    (Uh huh)
    Ride a glass Chevrolet, damn near see through
    But they all fall 'cuz he learnt to walk
    But he never learnt to crawl, have mercy, Lord

    Lord have mercy on me
    This is just how it's gone be
    Niggas dying daily on them same corner that pay me
    But that's the only chain I'm gon' see

    Lord have mercy, on me
    I'm doin' the best that I can
    But it's hard in my front yard
    It's do or die out here, ya understand?

    I get it in, I put the chamber under yo' chin
    I play to win, stingy, I don't have no air to lend
    I'm standin' still, talkin' 'bout I'm grill
    Cee-Lo Seville and steel real
    Only millimeters away from my meal
    Mighty knife, just enough not inconsiderate ice
    You're contemplatin', contestin', please consider it twice
    'Cuz I'm connected with the guy left after the drop of a dime

    Or roll or roll down a bat, wonder what blow your mind
    I'm heavyweight and Front Street Skeet
    Got the snorters geeked-up and they keep runnin' back to the plate
    We get it on, get it out the pot
    Get on the block, and get it gone
    Raised up out of the factories, and then we sit it chrome
    Ya won't show, get out doors even if it's ice-cold
    And slice O's as the dice rolls, shit
    And may Lord have mercy on your hustlin'-ass soul

    Lord have mercy on me
    I'm doin' the best that I can
    But it's hard in my front yard
    It's do or die out here, ya understand?

    Lord have mercy on me
    This is just how it's gone be
    Niggas dying daily on them same corner that pay me
    But that's the only chain I'm gon' see

    Lord have mercy on me
    I'm doin' the best that I can
    But it's hard in my front yard
    It's do or die out here, ya understand?
