    Street Struck

    Yeah, it's the Big L
    Comin at you once again, in nine-five
    And I dedicate this one
    to all my peoples from Uptown.. and everywhere
    Check it!

    Yo where I'm from it ain't cookies and cream
    There's a lot of peer pressure growin up as a young teen
    You never know when you gonna get wet
    Cause mad clowns be catchin wreck with a tec just to get a rep
    Instead of cool friends, they'd rather hang with male thugs
    Instead of goin to school, they'd rather sell drugs
    It's best to go the right route and not the wrong one
    Because it's gonna catch up witchu in the long run
    Brothers be all up on us, actin stupid, gettin lifted
    They life is twisted, and most of them are quite gifted
    In other words, they got TALENT; but they'd rather sell cracks
    and bust gats and run the streets actin violent
    To them it's all about hittin skinz and makin some easy green
    Cause that's all they show you on the TV screen
    All they care about is a buck or bustin a sweet nut
    They don't give a (WHAT?) cause they street struck

    You betta listen when L rhyme; cause bein street struck'll
    get you nuttin but a bullet or jail time
    So pay attention when L rhyme; cause bein street struck'll
    get you nuttin but a bullet or jail time

    Before the rap contract, I was sellin crack
    Stay strapped with a Mac, I was into alla that
    I started rappin and got nice as hell
    If it wasn't for this I might be doin life in jail
    And some of my peeps are still in the game sellin 'caine
    If that's what you gotta do to maintain, go 'head and do your thang
    But with the cash profit make an investment
    And try not to go to the grave like the rest went
    Cause you can be rich with crazy loot, own a house and nine cars
    What good is that, if you're dead, or behind bars?
    And yo it's not even funny
    I've seen a lot of my peers give up they careers for some fast money
    They could've been boxers, ballplayers or rap singers
    Instead they bank robbers and crack slingers
    Aiyyo they used to be legit kids, now they corrupt
    They had dreams but gave em up cause they street struck

    I still chill with my peeps in the streets; but most of the time
    I'm in the crib, writin rhymes to some dope beats
    Or either callin up some freaks to bone
    But word up, I try to leave the streets alone
    But it's crazy hard kid, in other words, it's spooky
    The streets be callin me, like the crack be callin Pookie
    It ain't a dumb joke, listen to this young folk
    Cause where I'm from -- you can choke from the gunsmoke
    Stay off the corners; that might be your best plan
    Before you catch a bullet that was meant for the next man
    Or end up with a deep cut
    Or relaxin on a hospital bed, from bein street struck

    Worrrd up!
    Aiyyo take it from me, the Big L
    Cause I been through it all, youknowhatI'msayin?
    Stay off them corners you'll stay out of trouble
    And I gotta say rest in peace to all the cats teasin streets
    I'm outta her
