    Lyrics

    Light it, uhh
    Light it up, uhh

    [Nas]
    The whole, city is mine, prettiest Don
    I don't like the way P. Diddy did Shyne with different lawyers
    Why it's mentioned in my rhymes? Fuck it, it's just an intro
    Hate it or love it, like it bump it or dump it
    Writing, across the stomach spell GOD son
    Life is like a jungle black it's like the habitat of Tarzan
    Matter of fact, it's harder than most can imagine
    Most of my niggaz packed in correctional facilities
    Half of them passed on, black's strong, couple of shots
    May the ghost leave a body, now they hauntin' the block
    Where they used to stand at, somebody's takin they place
    A younger man perhaps, hand slaps, can't understand that
    Same walk, same talk, I wonder can that be possible
    A thug dies, another step inside his shoes
    And they will hurt you, layin low with a bottle
    I'm blowin circles, my state of mind purple

    Light it, light it, uhh
    Yeah.. light it up, light it up, uhh

    Y'all just wanna deal with drama
    Talk about niggaz who got things, y'all ready to kill his momma
    Everything you went to is underworld related
    You sell your man out, not even your girl is sacred
    You don't trust a soul, hold up, you moldin soldiers
    to pull guns quick and always look behind the shoulder
    Think of how many dudes died tryin to be down with you
    Everybody's under six feet of ground but you
    Still standin, still roamin through the streets, that's real
    You a survivor, knowin all the beef is ill
    You got a bunch of thugs witchu even now that's ready
    Trustin your judgment, quick to put it down, they deadly
    The hood love you but behind your back they pray for the day
    A bullet hit your heart and ambulances take you away
    That ain't love it's hate, think of all the mothers' lost weight
    whose sons you killed, and you ain't got a cut on your face?
    Unmarked police cars roam the streets hard, the heat is God
    Somebody tell these shorties reach for the stars
    Instead they tell 'em how to reach through the bars, holdin a mirror
    holdin' down a tear in jail, makin weapons that kill ya
    We smoke three tokes nigga pour more Henny
    He sighs with eyes that seen a war too many
    Cold-blooded murderers, universal
    Hood to hood, blowin circles, my state of mind's purple

    Light it up, light it up light it up, uhh
    Light it up.. light it up, light it up, uhh
    Uhh.. uhh, uhh, light it, light it, uhh

    These hot-headed youngsters, always get into trouble
    Reactin before thinkin, they easily irritated
    And murder's premeditated, it's a fact that we sinkin
    when we should be climbin, in a nutshell, it's just jail
    Drug sales, liquor and diamonds, niggaz rewind this
    instead of movin forward, to blow up so what's the science?
    People shoutin, police pushin the crowd
    And on the ground's a young soldier, with meat hangin out him
    Am I hallucinatin off the hazin?
    Or did I just see a nigga shoot another nigga's face in
    It's a ugly nation, cops circle the block with mug shots
    Photograph pictures of, suspect faces
    It's usually, two or three niggaz who innocent
    But if they lock the wrong ones up, then someone'll snitch
    A divide and fall strategy, they aren't fair
    I dig in my bag of weed that's covered with orange hair
    This Color Purple'll make Whoopi give me the pussy
    (?) Oprah and Danny Glover gots to feel me
    This is how I escape the madness, too much of anything'll hurt you
    So, my state of mind's all purple
