Tru - The Ghetto is a Struggle

rate me


The ghetto is a struggle but we've gots to change our lives

We've got to change our lives, Oh-oh

The ghetto is a struggle but we've gots to change our lives

We've got to change our lives, Oh-oh

Master P:

I've done seen it all in the bricks

Somebody said he would never change

The homies killin' up each other

Shit, I guess that is the dope game

And if you look like a thug, then that mean trouble

See my next door neighbor knockin' on the window

She wanna ???

And my water don't get hot, I got bleach in my holey socks

And my mom started stressin' us why I started sellin' rocks

And this street got my crazy

Momma said I can't lose my baby (Damn)

But see these niggas so shady (Ha Bro?)

Fuck the world if they take me



The ghetto is a struggle to me

Who can I be?

Will it bring trouble to me?

Before I rest in peace I ask my auntie to look up in the sky and thank

Before she turn another trigger, take another drink

I know it's hard

Tryin' to survive and not die and stay alive

But who you really foolin'?

Cause we all live a lie

It ain't the same wishin' ya didn't have any

Didn't want it and take it

But if the situation right then It's your pockets I'm breakin'

I lost my conscious when I lost my big brother

Ask my mother, I'm never changin' my ways

Not even for The Source cover

I puts it down like that on this track

To give back to the hood

It's a struggle (It's a struggle)

It's all good (It's all good)


Silkk the Shocker:

The ghetto is a struggle, so I gots to make a change

You know it's hard on the streets, but I've gots to maintain

Mom pullin' up on my sleeve tellin' me don't leave

I'm like, "I gots to do what I gots to do

because if I don't, I don't eat"

Grew up with the rats and the roaches

Tryin' to stay focused (Stay focused)

Tryin' to survive in this world but it's like I stay hopeless

The world is a ghetto and I can't escape that (Can't escape that)

Every time I try to prove 'em wrong y'all just prove 'em right

Shit and, I hate that

I know I've made some mistakes black

Deep in the ghetto tryin' to find the queen

Tryin' to avoid the hoodrat

We've go to make a change

And in fact, we should

Just because we in the ghetto

We should still dream see past the hood
