Title :

Street Struck

[Big L]
Yeahit's the Big L
Comin at you once againin nine-five
And I dedicate this one
to all my peoples from Uptown.. and everywhere
Check it!

Yo where I'm from it ain't cookies and cream
There's a lot of peer pressure growin up as a young teen
You never know when you gonna get wet
Cause mad clowns be catchin wreck with a tec just to get a rep
Instead of cool friendsthey'd rather hang with male thugs
Instead of goin to schoolthey'd rather sell drugs
It's best to go the right route and not the wrong one
Because it's gonna catch up witchu in the long run
Brothers be all up on usactin stupidgettin lifted
They life is twistedand most of them are quite gifted
In other wordsthey got TALENT; but they'd rather sell cracks
and bust gats and run the streets actin violent
To them it's all about hittin skinz and makin some easy green
Cause that's all they show you on the TV screen
All they care about is a buck or bustin a sweet nut
They don't give a (WHAT?) cause they street struck

Chorus: Big L

You betta listen when L rhyme; cause bein street struck'll
get you nuttin but a bullet or jail time
So pay attention when L rhyme; cause bein street struck'll
get you nuttin but a bullet or jail time

[Big L]
Before the rap contractI was sellin crack
Stay strapped with a MacI was into alla that
I started rappin and got nice as hell
If it wasn't for this I might be doin life in jail
And some of my peeps are still in the game sellin 'caine
If that's what you gotta do to maintaingo 'head and do your thang
But with the cash profit make an investment
And try not to go to the grave like the rest went
Cause you can be rich with crazy lootown a house and nine cars
What good is thatif you're deador behind bars?
And yo it's not even funny
I've seen a lot of my peers give up they careers for some fast money
They could've been boxersballplayers or rap singers
Instead they bank robbers and crack slingers
Aiyyo they used to be legit kidsnow they corrupt
They had dreams but gave em up cause they street struck

Chorus: repeat 2X

[Big L]
I still chill with my peeps in the streets; but most of the time
I'm in the cribwritin rhymes to some dope beats
Or either callin up some freaks to bone
But word upI try to leave the streets alone
But it's crazy hard kidin other wordsit's spooky
The streets be callin melike the crack be callin Pookie
It ain't a dumb jokelisten to this young folk
Cause where I'm from -- you can choke from the gunsmoke
Stay off the corners; that might be your best plan
Before you catch a bullet that was meant for the next man
Or end up with a deep cut
Or relaxin on a hospital bedfrom bein street struck

Chorus: repeat 2X

[Big L]
Worrrd up!
Aiyyo take it from methe Big L
Cause I been through it allyouknowhatI'msayin?
Stay off them corners you'll stay out of trouble
And I gotta say rest in peace to all the cats teasin streets
I'm outta here
