Song Meaning
Verse 1
Black people don't have nowhere to go
You know all we got to do is kick it
We gonna kick it in our hood you know
What we gonna do we might
Verse 2
We might go kill a couple of niggaz mane
You know go in they hood and do a drive by
Then come back in the hood and laugh about that stuff
You know it's just a thing
Verse 3
Only how you really gonna get deep into it
Is when one of your homeys die
Just like when my partnaz died
(we got some problems)
Verse 0
[Chorus]
First we pray, then we ride
First we pray, then we ride
Verse 4
He was my brother
Loved him like no other
To top it off
I introduced him to this game
I knew his mother
Loved her like my mother
Part of me is gone
Bout take my brother home
Verse 5
(what're ya gonna do)
When the trials come
(are ya gonna run?)
Are you gonna run?
(what're ya gonna do)
First I'm gonna pray
(are ya gonna run?)
You muthafuckin right
Verse 6
[Chorus]
Verse 7
I ain't got nuthin but love for you loccs and hogs
And I ain't got nuthin but love for my muthafuckin dogs
In the mist of the war zone, its on on site
Daylight tonight the heat held close and tight
Verse 8
Beware here I come with the DPG on my chest
Heat gonna spit like Elliot Ness
In the darkest zone you feel alone and on your own
And after I bust, niggaz call me Kurupt Coleone
Verse 9
All I'm about is money, loot and cash
Homeys in the DPG Nate, Snoop and Daz
Now with these emotions how you approach yourself
Knowin you all about your wealth and as it is to health
Verse 10
First I pray, get my thoughts intact
Ask for forgiveness 'cause I'm bout to lay this nigga flat
Can you adapt, can you feel me, I doubt it
'Cause the closest you see it, is when niggaz write about it
Verse 11
I can't live without it and it ain't shit I could do
But stay down with the homeys in grey and blue
So just keep the heat close in hand
'Cause I done see niggaz get shit while they homeboys ran
Verse 12
Heavenly father shine your light on me
I know I promise to slow down on this weed
Seems I remember someone used to say
One life gets taken, if you take one life away
Verse 13
(what're ya gonna do)
When the trials come
(are ya gonna run?)
Are you gonna run?
(what're ya gonna do?)
First I'm gonna pray
(are ya gonna run?)
You muthafuckin' right
Verse 14
[Chorus]
