about

"Streetlyfe" was inspired by young men in the urban community facing struggles and the understanding of what it means to be a man. This song is to uplift these young brothers in the understanding that street life isn't the only alternative, there are other opportunities for a better life. As a teenager growing into my manhood, I faced these struggles and see myself in some of these young guys. I want them to know they are not alone.

"Streetlyfe" is originally from the album "Fallen Angel"

lyrics

Street life, you better save yourself
Get outta the street life
Before it gets too late

Verse:

Running here and there
I was running everywhere

Thought I had some friends
Found out the hard way

I dun lost myself
Trying to be a man

Wasn't what I thought
I saw a lot of things

Grew up so fast you could say
Thought I knew it all
But didn't know a thing

The future had something in store for me
When I look at you, I see myself

Hook:

You living that street life
You better save yourself
Get outta the street life

Don't let 'em take you down
Get outta them streets boy
You hustling just to get by
But there's another way

You better save yourself
Before it gets too late
Time ain't on our side
(boy live your life)

Verse 2:


Cause when you all in the streets
That weight is all on your shoulders

It's just a heavy pain
I wonder does it ever go away

Feels like another day
Does it ever change

Po po around the corner
Drug dealers start running game

Is this the life
I chose for me? Oh why

B-section:

Bad boy
What's gonna be
Get it right or run the street (repeat 3x)

Hook:

Street life

You better save yourself
Get outta the street life

Don't let 'em take you down
Get outta them streets boy

You hustling just to get by
But there's another way

You better save yourself
Before it gets too late

Time ain't on our side
(boy live your life)

Boy, what's it gonna be?
Get it right, or run the streets.
Oh boy, what's it gonna be?
Get it right, or run the streets.
