I finally got the fame and fortune that I prayed for

Who would have thought I would emerge from all that gun smoke?

This for all the teenagers that wanna gun tote

‘Cause they cheaper in the hood than in the gun store (On God)

You gon’ lose a lot of your friends and that’s what hurt the most

You can’t do nothin’ but reminisce about y’all crackin’ jokes

You feelin’ like nobody love you, I know how that go

You gotta love yourself, lil’ nigga, that’s gon’ help you glow (On God)

I know it might sound lame, but just stay in school (21)

They got a place that they put people who don’t follow rules (Yeah)

You probably got your mama scared, don’t wanna watch the news

Ready to risk your life and freedom for a pair of shoes

Yeah, you say you love your switch, but they don’t love you back

You can hug that block all night, it ain’t gon’ hug you back (Facts)

Some of your friends gon’ reincarnate and come back as rats (Pussy)

And after your candlelight, they ain’t gon’ give your mama jack

Now your brother kids askin’ where they daddy at

So you gotta lie and tell ’em he just took a nap (Damn)

You done failed in the streets, so now you tryna rap

But that ain’t really workin’ for you, so it’s back to trap, damn


When it’s all said and done

There’s some things you can’t run from

It’s hard to decide

Either live or you die

I, I ask myself was it all worth the risk

‘Cause I can’t pretend (Yeah)

I can’t stand the thought of losing you


I know how it feel to see your dawgs stretched out (On God)

And watch him struggle tryna let his last breath out (Damn)

You don’t wanna do it, but you lost some real niggas that you gotta step out

One more seat left in the car, you gotta help out (Yeah)

Niggas stressed out (Yeah, yeah)

Probably why I tell the kids to put the guns down (Oh, facts)

Gangsta but I still cry when nobody around

Tryna numb the pain, drinkin’ bottles ’til I drown (‘Til I drown, 21)

Never do no suicide

But I’d be lyin’ if I said it hadn’t crossed my mind

I hurt on the inside and I still act like I’m fine

Why the judge give my nigga Paul all that time? (Free Paul, hey)

Heard they lockin’ niggas up for what they put in rhymes

Standin’ on this shit (Oh), fuck it, I’m still writin’ mine (Fuck ’em, oh)

This what growth look like, no more committin’ crimes (21)

I stayed out the way and made a way for us to grind (21, 21)


When it’s all said and done (All said and done)

There’s some things you can’t run from

It’s hard to decide

Either live or you die (Live)

I, I ask myself (Ask myself) was it all worth the risk (Was it all?)

‘Cause I can’t pretend (Yeah)

I can’t stand the thought of losing you

All my dawgs too


Forever-ever Eastside (Eastside)

This shit ‘posed to be for life (Supposed to be for life, 4L)

Jumpin’ shit since we was five (21, five)

We got that fire, we was nine, nine

Even though I’m up, up

You can see the pain in my eyes

I mean like fuck love (On God)

But either way, I’m still gon’ try

Got me fucked up (21)

Seein’ my twin on Channel 5

I, ’cause even gangsters cry

I, I, I

Gangsters cry

Even gangsters cry

I, I, I

Even gangsters cry

(I, I, I)

21, 21


My son, this is your time

I know your heart

And I’ve watched you rise above many challenges

And you have made me so proud

I pray for many more fulfilling experiences as you elevate to new levels of growth, purpose, and success

Dreams really do come true

By the grace of the source of life, so be it
