Straight Gangstaism lyrics


Song information

Artist: Geto Boys
Album: Till Death Do Us Part



Yeah, I take y'all way back

Seven years old
I'm lookin' up to the ganstas in the hood
'Cause to me and my cousins yeah they represented good
Even when we played cops and robbers on the block
Nobody wanted to play the cop yeah
'Cause the cop was a pussy-ass bitch
And if you played the cop, nigga you got your ass kicked!
I was a curious child
I used to hang out by the bar room and study the gansta style
The way they talk, the way they walk, the way they act
The way they wore dat gansta hat
Tilted, brim layed flat out
Now that's the type a shit I'm talkin' about yeah
Cigarette in one hand, drink in the other
Leanin' to one side, cooler than a motherfucker
With them ganster-ass nicknames
Gilley boy, pokey, big joe, go-dee, and leo lane
True muthafuckin' mack daddies
Bitch on the side, drivin' the '73 caddy
Wid a chrome plated .357
Ready to send a muthafucka on a stairway to heaven
I was fascinated, yeah
I let 'em influence me, and my momma hate it
But she still gave me love
'Cause my momma understood
That it was in my blood
See it was a cycle
And in a few mo' years she wouldn't have to worry about a michael
'Cause I'll be makin' my own decisions, yeah
Comin' up fast, clockin' cash
Straight gansterism

Yeah... uh... on and on and on and on and on... yeah... uh
Break it down
Like dat
Like dat

Now is '93
I got a name fo' myself
Made a little wealth, played the cards I was dealt
Didn't go fo' self, now I'm a g, huh
And every muthafuckin' body know me
Niggas in the hood, all got love
'Cause they saw me raise up from a muthafuckin scrub
And hoes that I know
From way back befo'
They used to say no
All wanna go to the hotel
'Cause they claim that they interested
And everybody talkin' about the shit that they wish they did
But I surpassed all that
They used to wanna know if I was down, now they don't ask all that
'Cause they believin' what they seein'
A young nigga comin' up fast, yeah
Straight g

On and on and on
Like that
Takin' 'em way back

Sittin' back as a youngsta, peepin' at ma folks
Some were straight g's and some went out smoking dope
I had to cope wid it, be a man and stay strong
Even though some folks didn't think that I'd live long
I watch grandpa shoot dice at the liquo' sto'
Gettin' licks in the dough ague and the big joe
Walkin' out the door wid a gallon of jack
Sellin' straight cess booze 'cause back then there weren't no crack
A matter fact, to this day
I'm doin' shit like grandpa in every way
I got my hustle on, loc I ain't frontin'
Jus' a young nigga in this world tryin' ta have somethin' yeah
That's the environment I know
That's how I was raised and that's how I'm a go
I dunno will I ever be a cell mate but I do know I'm never goin' straight..

Yeah [toke] really doe [toke] 3-2 in the muthafuckin' house doe [toke]
Down with the mutherfuckin' gb [toke]
And y'all gonna hear the original big baby really doe [toke]
And the mutherfuckin' 9 to the trey deuce!
I know you heard that big baby [toke] yeah [toke]
We got seag in the muthafuckin' house doe from oakland [toke] yeah

We got big chief and 'lil jay, really doe [toke]
Say big baby, lookit mike d [laugh laugh]

Uh the they can't fade it doe
