Song Lyrics

[Intro/Chorus: 2Pac]

Say he wanna be

Shorties gonna be a thug

Said he wanna be

One day he`s gonna be

Said he`s wanna be

Shorties gonna be`s a thug (3x)

[Verse One]

Was a nice middle class n*gga

But no one knew, the evil he`d do, when he got a little bigger

Get off the final blaze, while puffing on a Newport

Plotting on a another way to catch a case

Was only sixteen, yet convicted as a felon

With a bunch of old n*ggas, but you the only one ain`t telling

I tell you it`s a cold world, stay in school

You tell me its a man`s world, play the rules

And fade fools, and break rules until we major

Blaze up, getting with hos through my pager

Was raised up, commencing to money making tactics

It`s getting drastic, n*ggas got automatics

My fingers on the trigger, tell the Lord

To make way for another straight thug n*gga

I`m sitting getting buzzed, looking for some love

From the homies, cause shorty wanna be a thug


[Verse Two]

Straight from the Hall to the Penn

An adolescent n*gga standing way higher than six feet ten

He carried weight like a Mack truck

Gonna bust on some player haters, if the motherf**kers act tough

Then thats when the lethal weapon with the razor

This little n*gga smoking weed and getting blazed up

No one could figure, when the guns blast pull the trigger

Could take the life of a young n*gga, gun`s bigger

No mother and father, you see, the n*ggas all alone

Old timers my role model, the war zone

Released with this game until its a part of me

My heart don`t beat no fear and it ain`t hard to see

The future is looking dim

I`m trying to make a profit out of living in this sin

I`m in the dark getting buzzed, looking for some love

Out with the homies, cause shorty wanna be a thug


[Outro: 2Pac]

Shorty gonna be a thug

(You little bad ass n*gga)

To the young n*ggas

Gotta stay sharp n*gga

(Play your part)

You got plenty of time

(You bad motherf**kers)

You only get three mistakes, then thats life, big baby

(n*ggas crazy)

Watch the signs

Damn, you ain`t but sixteen n*gga?


That`s a bad motherf**ker
