Lyrics

[CHORUS] I wonder if heaven got a ghetto I wonder if heaven got a ghetto I wonder if heaven got a ghetto I wonder if heaven got a ghetto I was raised The little young nigga Doing bad shit Talk much shit 'Cause I never had shit I could remember Being whupped in class And if I didn't pass Mama whupped my ass

Was it my fault Papa didn't plan it out Broke out, left me to be The man of the house I couldn't take it Had to make a profit Down the block, got a glock And I clock grip Making G's was my mission Moving enough of this shit To get my mama out the kitchen And why must I sock a fella Just to live large like Rockefeller First you didn't give a fuck But you're learning now If you don't respect the town Then we'll burn you down God damn It's a motherfucking riot Black people only waste police So don't try it If you're not from the town Then don't pass through Cause some O.G. fools Might blast you It ain't right But it's long overdue We can't have peace Till the niggas get a piece too I want G's So you label me a criminal And if I die I wonder if heaven got a ghetto [repeat CHORUS] Here on Earth, tell me What's a black life worth A bottle of juice is no excuse The truth hurts And even when you take the shit Move counties, get a lawyer You can shake the shit Ask Rodney, LaTasha, and many more It's been going on for years There's plenty more When they ask me When will the violence cease When your troops stop shooting Niggas down in the street Niggas had enough time To make a difference Bear witness Own our own business Word to God 'cause it's hard Trying to make ends meet First we couldn't afford shit Now everything's free So we loot Please don't shoot when you see I'm taking from them 'cause for years They would take from me Now the tables have turned around You didn't listen Until the niggas burned it down And now Bush can't stop the hit I predicted the shit in 2Pacalypse And for once I was down with niggas Felt good in the hood Being around the niggas, yeah And for the first time Everybody let go And the streets is death row I wonder if heaven got a ghetto [repeat CHORUS] I see no changes All I see is racist faces Misplaced hate Makes disgrace to races We under I wonder what it take To make this one better place Let's erase the wait state Take the evil out the people They'll be acting right Cause both black and white Are smoking crack tonight And only time we deal Is when we kill each other It takes skill to be real Time to heal each other And though it seems heaven sent We ain't ready to have A black President, huh It ain't a secret Don't conceal the fact The penitentiary's packed And it's filled with blacks I wake up in the morning And I ask myself Is life worth living Should I blast myself I'm tired of being poor And even worse, I'm black My stomach hurts so I'm looking For a purse to snatch Cops give a damn about a negro Pull a trigger, kill a nigger He's a hero Mo' nigga mo' nigga Mo' niggas I'd rather be dead Than a poor nigga Let the Lord Judge the criminals If I die I wonder if heaven got a ghetto [repeat CHORUS 2x] Just think if niggas Decide to retaliate Soldier in the house [repeat CHORUS]
