My Heroes Have Become My Homies (FF 90)

from Freestyle Friday Vol. 1 by Philo Reitzel



What do I got to say mane, been showin up with my A game
I gotta stay on it cuz people they want it I keep it one hunnid to stay sane
Lies they never did sit right even on nights I was gone off that get right
Know how I’m living the scope of my vision expanded see it through big sight
Growin up listen to Big Syke, comin of age in the nineties
Where we were all up on that Thug Life, pitchin and keepin it grimy
Some of us never grew out of it, some of our lives got cut short
Some of us took a lengthy vacation at a state sponsored resort
See my life how it looks now is not how it looked then
I’m on some positive change now, I was somewhat of a crook then
I was never ever square like a book end
I’m extra rare like a good friend
I’m doing something right my heroes have become my homies
Life can be whatever you want Tony! Toni! Toné!
And that’s a Bay shout out where they known to weight that out
The code never rat out just another slap I spat out
