    "What I Been Through" Lyrics

    Lil' Flip

    Hi, this is the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous
    Today we're interviewing Lil' Flip (what's up man)
    So Lil' Flip tell me, how long have you been rapping
    (man I've been rapping ever since)...

    [Lil' Flip]
    1995, I was in junior high
    I saw a lot of shit, so I was glad to be alive
    A lot of people died, but a lot of people here
    And when I turned 15, my vision got clear
    It's time to be a man, time to make a plan

    It's cool to make a hundred, but it's best to make a grand
    My Granny got sick, and then they found cancer
    We got to pay the doctors, but God got the answer
    The surgery went good, my Granny doing well
    My baby on the way so I can't go to jail
    And to my niggas on the block, stop selling rocks
    Cause I'ma tell the truth you can't outsmart the cops
    You see what I did, I only drop hits
    Chopping up game, y'all chopping up bricks
    And some niggas snitch, cause they can't take the heat
    How we gone go buy a system when the system got his beat

    [Young Redd]
    Hey, I'm from the home of the Astros, home of the Rockets
    Born to rap yo, with a microphone in my pocket
    Always thought I was grown, you couldn't tell me nothing
    I would talk shit if you tried to tell me something
    But I regret that, I had some minor setbacks

    Old people thought my future would be jet black
    All my years growing up, I thought life was a game
    You can't make it real far, thinking life is a game
    Yeah we lost a couple of friends, I almost lost my brother
    I don't know what would of happened if we lost eachother
    Everyday is something new, I just take it in stride
    You only got one life, so enjoy the ride
    Sometimes I was paid, sometimes I was broke
    Me and Gray started hustling but my mama didn't know
    But it's cool, cause now I'm into this music
    The man gave us a gift and we loving to use it
    And if you look real close you'll see
    That you can only be you, and I can be me
    Cause can't nobody ever live my life but me
    But you will never see what I see like me huh me

    [Chorus: Big T - 2x]
    And you don't know what I've been through

    So you shouldn't judge me
    And you don't know what I will and I won't do
    So you shouldn't judge me

    [Lil Ron]
    It's getting harder now I just don't understand
    Why the people in the world disgrace the black man
    All that I could say, is pray and let it be
    Little right and try your best not to end up like me
    See I was the nigga that slang dope and steal cars
    Glad I stopped before it led behind bars
    Heart aches and scars, help me feel my way
    Understand today I got a decision to make
    Now do I wanna live right or continue going wrong
    I'm never at home this music keep a nigga gone
    But this is what gets me, who are you to judge
    Cause I'm young and black, people still hold a grudge
    Just a nudge right now'd push me over the end
    When I was 14 I lost a very close friend
    And ever since then my life ain't been the same
    That's the biggest reason why I had to make a change

    [Lil' Flip]
    Never judge a book by it's cover, a man by his wealth
    And if you already on your feet why don't you help somebody else
    This what I was taught, so that's what I live by
    Cause you can't take none of this shit with you when you die
    So everyday I try, to keep my head high
    But these bird ass niggas always jump fly
    Should I take em out the game, naw I'ma use my brain
    I'ma kill em with kindness, and blow up my name
    I came from nothing, and now I got a little change
    A nigga happy now but I went through some pain
    And everyday it rain, there's gone be some sunshine
    I never thought I could put my whole life in one rhyme

    [Chorus - 2x]
