When I say Thug Life, I mean that shit / Cause these white folks see us as thugs / I don’t care what ya’ll think / I don’t care if you think a lawyer, If you a man, If you an african-american / If you whatever the fuck you think you are / We thugs and nigga’s to these motherfuckers / You know / And until we on some shit / I’mma call it like it is / How you going to be a man and we starving? You know? / And we walk down and 5 different houses and not a man in either one of them motherfuckers? / How we going to be a man? We thugs / And we nigga’s / Until we set this shit right.
