    The Fall And Rise Of Elliot Brown

    "I mean um, I got years man, I go back, actually
    I-I-I just got back to these streets man, this is home to me though
    Y'mean, I was goin' for a while, ten years to be exact
    I lost my lights in the streets, y'know but for these streets, me and my dude
    We got down and dirty for it, man, we did e'rythang, we took, nah'mean, to eat..
    That's what it's about when I was comin' up in the 80s', everybody tried to eat man
    and my way livin' to eat, man I gurped in theses streets
    I grind, walked to these streets here, nah'mean?"


    Got to get this bread
    Got to get this dough, got to get these chips
    Got to get these whips, and fits and -
    Got to get real mean, got to get real clean
    Got to get these fiends a fixin'
    On a mission to get rich real quick use wit' no intermission
    Got to live big, gettin' the tip on them big {?}, so spendin' spendin'
    Any witness get hit quick, this lick isn't never no kid shit
    Not a picnic, flip bis-cuit/get rich, that's it
    Big bills, just Ben's, no frills, just Benzes
    Spendin' endless spendin' sprees
    Limitless, BUILD IT UP TO THE MILLIONS
    Then I can have things, like a new fly ring
    and a new fly fling, I can do Irene, Darlene, Charlene
    and Francine, even get inside Pam's jeans as clean as you ever did see
    On the scene doin' real big things, as I PIMP this simple SYSTEM
    Then I hear si-rens, and I see high beams
    Now I am fly-in', but they're behind me
    NOW I'M ON ONE KNEE, AND THE DOPE'S ON ME
    NOW MY HOPE'S GONE SEE AND I LOST MY FREEDOM
    LOCKED UP, SEE YA!!




    ..He was a young lad
    Off of happiness and smiles, he was sprung bad
    Wanted all the trendy classy number one fads
    In a very short time, learned the rules of combat
    Learned who was a punk, and who would have swung back
    How to take from the weak, especially when hung-ray
    While mama's workin' two jobs, and daddy's gone away
    and police be throwin' you vibes, even at a young age
    and it was like he was livin' inside a cage
    from the outside world, 'cause he just couldn't relate
    ..and then life really began
    and trifeness was a giv-en when he graduated

    The Fall


    ..So he hustled
    doin' whatever just to get the bread and the mustard
    Stacked high, grew wit' some niggaz he trusted
    He shouldn't have though, 'cause them same niggaz got him busted
    And 'bout the same time he 'bout to get sent up, his -
    Ex-girl is like, "I'm pregnant baby daddy - plus it's twins"
    and when he goes to jail, he has company
    in the form of fifty percent of the cats he grew up wit'
    Gets out, goes back, just like a puppet
    Caught in a genocidal death trap of the government
    The don't rehabilitate, they just be lovin' it
    When niggaz is in the pen, 'cause that's big money makin' to them

    The Rise


    For some time he sat and pondered
    Trapped in a cell filled with criminals and convicts
    Time had arrived to confront the real conflict
    Lookin' within, not without, he got honest
    Started to read and acquire that self-knowledge
    Learned he was royalty and didn't come from garbage
    How to embrace struggle and learn from his problems
    True wealth is health, family, and a higher conscious-ness
    Learned most of what he was taught was nonsense
    Read up on economics and how to start a business
    Self-determination and dedication empowered him
    Somethin' inside him told him only God could STOP him
    Now he's out livin' what others said was impossible
    Thought he would be another victim of ghetto obstacles
    Through a concrete, a rosebud started to blossom
    Remember change is really all that remains constant, yeah


    "Saved message...Friday...3:56...P.M."
    "Hey, ?B-Cam?, this is your sister Dee-Dee
    I was just callin' to tell you that I, gone to see Frankie
    and I told him that you wanted him to, um
    GIVE a, like, what it was like to be in prison
    and what, advice he would give and
    Oh my God, I got this letter from him
    Tim, you've got to hear it, this word should be in the book or a song or something
    I mean really..."
