I was the third brother of five.
Doing whatever I had to do to survive.
I’m not saying what I did was alright.
Trying to break out of the ghetto was a day to day fight.
Been down so long, getting up didn’t cross my mind.
I knew there was a better way of life that I was just trying to find.
You don’t know what you’ll do until you’re put under pressure.
Across 110th Street is a hell of a tester.
