Just what I had goin on with the recent events. You ain't gotta like half the artists out today, but having someone take your life into their own hands isn't something you expect. They may live what they rap, they may not...But life is precious none the less.

Here i'm paying homeage to the dead and gone
Everytime we spit bars, every line is a dedication and through us they breathe on
You don't gotta know them personally to feel like you knew em
But sometimes I wish I could of been as close to them, as the person who slew'd em
Ridin' in the suburban with BIG when he got clapped
He told us skys the limit n changed the way we rapped
Big Poppa died, but we ain't know if it was a revenge killin'
Cause Pac got shot, but he stomped out Orlando, so maybe that dude caught a feelin'?

Slim got bucked, word is he had a price on his head
He lived a Soulja life mentality, so his destiny was filled with lead
The violence is senseless, but dudes ain't give a damn
They just doin' what they believe, the next man can
That night in the studio, I bet Jam Master had on some shell toes
Run DMC told us it was tricky, as far as rockin' rhymes goes
The N.O is a grave yard, first it was Slim, 5 years later it was VL Mike
From Cutthroat to Chopper City, dude's was really livin' that life

The Bay went hyphy when Mac Dre got hit in Kansas
This ain't The Wizard of Oz, they still ain't given us no answers
Stack Bundles got merked, the dude was in his hometown
Being famous around the jealous, can quickly get you shot down
You can't even go shoppin' without watchin' your back
Dolla's killer tried to board a plane, n he was still strapped
Eminem made like toy soldiers, the video was a depiction
Then Proof got killed n the sh*t was no longer fiction

Sometimes you can be, in the wrong place at the wrong time
They thought he was his brother, n Big L got hit with nine
Freaky Tah got one in the dome, He was one of the Lost Boyz
That night was Cheeks' birthday, it was neither a present or joy
I do all of this, Cause four days ago, another life was taken
Slim Dunkin took one to the chest, Another families heart is break'n
I ain't condoning their lives, but how easy is one to take
We take for granted what we have, please listen, for gods sake
