Ice T - That's How I'm Livin Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • I was born in new jersey, I said it before
  • But I guess nobody heard me
  • My mother died young
  • No sistas or brothas, I was the only son
  • When I was twelve my pops died too
  • What a brotha was supposed to do?
  • They sent me out west
  • To live with my aunt
  • I guess they though it was the best
  • But there was no love there
  • Growin with no moms
  • I guess I was prepared to live in a vacuum
  • The bedroom the kitchen, the hall and the bathroom
  • I didnt leave home much, didnt like l.a.
  • Didnt have no friends to trust
  • Got busted to a school
  • Blacks and whites, I guess the shit was cool
  • But in highschool I changed
  • Didnt wanna bust, didnt wanna play the game
  • I walked to crenshaw high, shit was fly
  • I hooked up with new cru
  • Some brothas that knew what the ***** to do
  • You might call it gang but we called it a set
  • And it was our own thang
  • The whole school was down
  • And one way or another everybody *****ed around
  • When the hardcore or not
  • You wore the right color or your ass got shot
  • Thats how Im livin...
  • I did three years in and made close friends
  • Havin no love my homies came my only
  • I was glad: a family I never had
  • But I grew up fast got a girl on 10th grade pregnant
  • Needin cash, I had to change my style
  • Switched from bangin to hustlin
  • No more goin buckwild
  • Had to get a cashflow
  • But my hustle was weak, it was a no go
  • I join the army, four years in that shit
  • Be all *****ed you can be
  • Came back to the hood
  • My homies had done good
  • Had elevated their game
  • About 100 gees a lick, no motha*****in shame
  • Passed for the jewels
  • Baby sledgehammers with the tools
  • I speak on this with a hesitation
  • Even though it passed the statue of limitation...
  • I checked the bank
  • Bought a porsche and gear, earn high streetrank
  • But as I grew my whole crew fell thru
  • Cops had us on the books as innerstate crooks
  • Murder robbery rape escape, the whole damn nine
  • You robbed a nigga blind
  • I had too much juice, I cut my boosters loose
  • I was intread with the pimpgame
  • Took on the ice-name
  • But the pimpgame moved too slow
  • Especially for a nigga who was hooked on quick dough
  • In one nite late I was in a carwreck
  • And I was lucky to escape
  • Hospital for teen weeks, in bed almost dead
  • And when I got well, I got gaught in a cross
  • And got locked in a jailcell
  • Thats how Im livin...
  • They cutted me loose
  • And I had to change troops
  • This time they didnt catch me
  • Next time theyll strecth me
  • Cause my time was gettin short
  • All my homies was in court
  • Or locked in a hole, this shit was gettin old
  • So I changed my life
  • Putted down the gun and picked up the mic
  • It took ten years to get from there to here
  • But I still keep a gun, cops got me on the run
  • And they hate me more now
  • Than they ever did before
  • My homies came back from pen
  • And we all worked together
  • True friends but every once and while
  • Some punk mistakes me as a junk
  • And he gets in my face
  • Wrong motha*****in place
  • And I aint lyin, thats how you dyin...
