    "The Ghetto" Lyrics


    Can I talk about the ghetto?
    That's where I'm from
    Listen up, whoa

    Just ridin' through the neighborhood
    What I see don't look too good
    All my brothers hustlin'
    All my sisters strugglin'
    Just to make it through another day
    Just another day
    That's just the way it is

    (Just the way it is)
    When you're living

    (Living in the ghetto)
    Trying to make it seems so hard
    (Living in the ghetto)
    Unemployment, don't even have no jobs
    (Living in the ghetto) Whoa
    (I grew up in the ghetto)
    In the ghetto, ghetto whoa

    Still got so many memories (Memories)
    Growing up with my family (Oh family)
    Still westside 'till I die (Throw it up)
    And even though I'm living in a highrise
    It's not where you are but it's where you're from
    Daddy told me long ago
    That's why I'll never forget my days

    (Never forget my days, no)

    (Living in the ghetto)
    People don't got no where to go
    (Living in the ghetto)
    Pimps and hustlers everybody knows
    (Living in the ghetto) Whoa
    (I grew up in the ghetto)
    In the ghetto, in the ghetto

    Play on, play on
    My, my, my, my, my, my, my
    Somebody tell me why
    It has to be this way
    Oh why?
    Don't give up, no, no

    This is for my queens
    Keep your hopes high
    Stay down on your knees
    Praying every night
    There'll be days like these
    Mama used to say
    Ain't no need to worry
    He's gonna make a way

    And this is for my kings
    Don't forget respect
    Gotta keep moving on
    Cause it ain't over yet
    Keep your head about it
    Keep your head about it
    'Bout it, 'bout it, 'bout it

    While you're living
    (Living in the ghetto)
    See I'll never forget where I'm from, no, no
    (Living in the ghetto)
    And how far I've come, see I've come too far
    (Living in the ghetto)
    In the ghetto, who
    (I grew up in the ghetto)
    In the ghetto, the ghetto

    (Living in the ghetto)
    So many kids out in the streets
    (Living in the ghetto)
    2 o'clock in the morning when they need to be at home asleep
    (Living in the ghetto)
    In the ghetto, in the ghetto
