Because...people hate on Jay equally as much as other people love his music. However you call it
"he was just some thug that caught some slug, and he loved cuz in him we saw some of us"

He runnin around like life's a peach, 'til one day
he approached this thug that, had a mean mug
And it looked so familiar that he called him "Young Cuz"
Told him, get off the strip but the boy ain't budge (ufck you)
Instead he pulled out a newer thirty-eight snub
He clearly had the drop but the boy just paused (hold up)
There was somethin in this man's face he knew he seen before
It's like, lookin in the mirror seein hisself more mature
And he took it as a sign from the almighty Lord
You know what they say about he who hesitates in war
(What's that?) He who hesitates is lost
He can't explain what he saw before his picture went blank
The old man didn't think he just followed his instinct
Six shots into his kin, out of the gun
@%%@$% be a father, you're killin your son

POWERFUL

"Isis, like this broadway life / she love the gucci sneakers the red green and white"


Used to say this line everytime I saw this girl named Isis in my class back in high school

Damn near impossible, only men can raise men
He was his own man, not even him can save him
He put his faith in a thirty-eight in his waist
But when you live by the gun you die by the same fate
End up, dead before thirty-eight and umm
That's the life of us raised by winter, it's a cold world

Favorite track on BP2 by far. Forreal.

Y'all really think this song is slept on?

Pretty much the first song that gets brought up when this album is discussed.
