What Do You Do When You're Branded Lyrics

Branded, scorned is the one who ran
What do you do when your branded? And you know you're a man.
Wherever you go, for the rest of your life
You must prove, you're a man

See now I'm back wit the force, read about the kid
From the front to the back of The Source
You see me back on the course
Scream on every beat until my voice get crackled and horse
Front seat niggas never sit in the back wit a boss
Fuck the fact that it cost, the price tag of the Porsche
Will cost ya life, have ya mother feel an immaculate loss
But of course, come and speak to the best
And watch me spit a jewel sharper to carve the meat of your flesh
You looking weak in the chest, you see the street is a test
Women on the stoop smoking holding a seed to they breast
You see the street is a mess
Struggling holding a couple pounds of weed then the rest
Now I proceed to the rest of my niggas keeping it fresh,
Though we must stay on the grind I supersceded the stress,
We always seem to finesse from the East to the West,
You Know we w-w-we keep the teflon from the street to the vest
Kill that nigga slow like how you get defeated in chess
Got you under pressure, hairline receded effects
Hot air niggas I only feel the heat from your breath,
Rap niggas beef in they album probably needed the press
And as a man I never found the slightest need to impress
Another man because I'm proud and I believe that I'm blessed
But yo I always found the need to address these weaker niggas
That speak to the street always keeping the people abreast
Now you've been branded


Higher science and I'm changing the crime in,
Watch my son 'cause you'd be fucking wit the child of a Giant
I'm in a place stuck between being loving and violent, [voice switch]
Becoming more of a threat when I move subtle and silent,
Then set it off to be the only one to quiet the riot
My destiny's the only thing between the sky and the pilot,
Relate, it's like busting a 3-8
Be late, I be taking most of the brick leaving a pile outta shape
I never quit watching these niggas try to hide they mistake,
Taking a shit watching they body floating by in the lake
Make it quick you weak niggas better try to escape,
And create the quickest way to reach the fire escape.
Snitch niggas always quick to go and lie on a tape,
But it's o-k 'cause Super Hero niggas die wit a cape,
It's so great to watch them finally break, stand aside from the fake
Street niggas gotta slide for the take
Being broke and not being able to buy me a steak
Stacking my paper so see now I can buy an estate,
So I rely on the love and I reply to the hate
So much pain in the struggle my whole body'll ache, come on,
From the gates, so awake that was the plan of my fate
Now I'm straight, got me my own knife and fork on my plate
Want to scorch a debate, wait, do me a favor nigga just remember
The date, cause you been
