Common Ft. Nas - Ghetto Dreams

ghetto dreams
ghetto ghetto dreams
ghetto niggas' dreams
ghetto ghetto dreams
ghetto niggas' dreams
ghetto dreams
ghetto niggas' dreams
from the hood

[verse 1: common]
i want a bitch that look good and cook good
cinderella fancy, but she still look hood
butt naked in the kitchen for the pancakes
plus she tricking from the dough that her man makes
we got our own handshake
her titties ain't fake
fucking in the car cause he just can't wait
to get home, early in the morn' getting stoned
pretty with her eyes low, running by bible
the type of bitch that big said he would die for
is the type that i would rather stay alive for
tats on her back, looking all tribal
she know shoes like she know survival
well put together, she weathers the storm
seen her brother die so forever she's strong
hear beyonce's song and she gotta perform
whether fucking or fighting: we getting it on!


[verse 2: nas]
i don't even say shit, she can feel it
i toss the realest
so ______
ass is a weapon and it's hard to conceal it
baby in one arm, the other arm's a skillet
frying chicken, macaroni
raise on the black _____
(ghetto press???), she's my ____
______ or my mama
knowing the drama like she know when to joke
steal a nigga's squares, not wanting me to smoke
i poke my head out of benzes
streets that i know who my friends is
in this love for the money, power and clothes
a ghetto housewife watch reality shows
she might get to snapping when the cameras are closed
when the cameras start snapping, she's ready to pose


[verse 3: nas]
i notice all my flaws when it comes to writing rhymes
subject matter be changing too quickly at times
so i keep it strictly 'bout dimes and stick to the story
call me a pro in the pussy category
had explicit experience as i shouldn't mention
for me, getting women turn from a sport to an addiction
powerful women playing the roles of submission
_________ leashes
_____ women _______
pain under my game wanted and i'm sadistic
they liked it, they diked it, devices twisted
til i get a nice chick, to get me on some nice shit
crib raising kids, slap a door behind a white fist
but i'm still single, looking for cleopatra
african queen, yo look at me, i'm a bachelor
y'all niggas in trouble, keeping girls behind closed doors
cross your fingers, be happy i haven't chose yours
she loves _________ sandals
valentino bags is my etiquette my man is
half hood half glass, photographers cameras
____ hope she can handle this
she can join me, red carpet at my next non-profit
event having spot ____ have some alcohol _____
jumping out a bentley with some fresh red bottoms
you learn to dream with me when you are just in the projects

Common, Lupe Fiasco & Jennifer Hudson - We Can Do It Now

[Jennifer Hudson]
Guess I gotta forget all about this issue
and try to live my life just like it is
but I want everyobody to remember me (everybody)
I will come back 10 years ago (well, hey)
said I want everybody to remember me
when I go back 10 years and years ago
When I get my second chance

[Lupe Fiasco]
When I get my second chance I'm gon redeem myself
when I bring myself, me and my team my help
aint no "I" in that but I'm in that so I am packed
so theres ten to millions inside of that
aint one man army, one man army I am that
bring it back like a typer-writer, writing that
I attack like a lightening strike with a lions wrath
with a vipers bite come alive with that
put your life on that
like everything I do though
all my old wounds have healed but they still feel like they new though
and everytime I see 'em I start to think of you yo
first I wasn't focused, wasn't willing and my goon's
so performance was just lackin at those moments that were crucial
now my heart is razor sharp and confidence is MUCHO
big, things I can't forgive, things I cant forget
things I can't relive, the agony is asking me, defeat is sweet to sin
but I put that on my city we will never miss again.

Never miss the city of the wind that I'm in
city of the wind that I'm in
we can do it now
we can do it now
we can do it now
we can do it we can do we can do it now
second chance, second win, do it again
yeah eah, eeeeah

yeah we do it again
we can do it now
lets do it again
we can do it now
do it now

The rise of the phoenix, sweat falls
time has it's meaning, I evolve
hit the ground and bounce back up, just like B-Ball
Muhammad Ali jaw, I knew that I would be all
(?) where I came from, the same place that (?) from
my name hung, from the rafters before an aftermath of a master
wishing I could have the moment to grab the trophy and glass of champagne
my locker rooms a cold place, LA got no gates
you mighta seen this man cry, that was just my old face
my soul waits redemption and intervention from a higher dimension
inspire mission, no more hoping or wishing, conditions'll change
(?) and say Barack on the range
I'm from the Chi' too, now I'm Barack in the game
came back and overcame, overstood the rain
more than just the fame, married to the game
now I hold the reign
