2pac – it ain’t easy lyrics

Loading...

[intro]
keepin’ it real

[verse 1]
i take a shot of hennessy
now i’m strong enough to face the madness
nickel bag full of cess weed laced with hash
phone calls from my n-ggas on the other side
two childhood friends just died, i couldn’t cry
a d-mn shame, when will we ever change?
and what remains from a twelve gauge to the brain?
arguments with my boo, it’s true
i spend more time with my n-ggas than i do with you
but everywhere it’s the same thang
that’s the game, i’ll be d-mned if a thang changed
f-ck the fame, i’ll be hustlin’ to make a million
lord knows ain’t no love for us ghetto children
so we cold, rag-top slowin’ down, time to stop for gas
beep my h-rn for a hoochie with a proper -ss
uh, it ain’t easy, that’s my motto
drinkin’ tanqueray straight out the bottle
everybody wanna know if i’m insane
my baby mama got a mind full of silly games
and all the drama got me stressin’ like i’m hopeless
i can’t cope, me and the homies smokin’ roaches
’cause we broke, late night, hangin’ out ’til the sunrise
gettin’ high, watchin’ the cops roll by
it ain’t easy; that’s right, it ain’t easy

[hook]
—easy being me
will i see the penitentiary or will i stay free?
it ain’t easy being me
will i see the penitentiary or will i stay free?
it ain’t easy being me
will i see the penitentiary or will i stay free?

[verse 2]
i can’t sleep, n-ggas plottin’ on me, k!ll me while i’m dreamin’
wake up sweaty and screamin’
’cause i can hear them suckers schemin’
probably paranoid, problem is them punks be fantasizin’
a brother bite the bullet, open fire and i died
i wonder why, it’s just the way it is, even now
lookin’ out for these k!lla kids ’cause they wild
bill clinton, can you recognize a n-gga representin’
doin’ twenty to life in san quentin?
gettin’ calls from my n-gga mike tyson, ain’t nothin’ nice
yo ‘pac, do somethin’ righteous with your life
and even though you’re innocent you still a n-gga
so they figure, rather have you behind bars than triggers
but i’ma hold you down and holla thug life
l!ckin’ shots ’til i see my n-ggas free on the block
but no, it ain’t easy, ha ha ha
’til i see my n-ggas free on the block, uh, it ain’t easy

[hook]
it ain’t easy being me
will i see the penitentiary or will i stay free?
it ain’t easy being me
will i see the penitentiary or will i stay free?
it ain’t easy being me
will i see the penitentiary…

[verse 3]
lately been reminiscin’ about peppermint schnapps
in junior high hit the block
keep an eye on the cops while d-boys slang rocks
just a project kid without a conscience
i’m havin’ dreams of hearin’ screams at my concerts
me and all my childhood peers
through the years tryin’ to stack a little green
i was only seventeen when i started servin’ fiends
and i wish there was another way to stack a dolla
sold my impala ’cause these hard times make me wanna holla
will i live to see tomorrow? am i fallin’ off?
i hit the weed and then proceed to say: “f-ck all of y’all!”
ain’t n0body down with me, i’m thuggin’
i can’t go home, ’cause muh’f-ckers think i’m buggin’
so now i’m in this high-powered cell at the county jail
punk judge got a grudge, can’t post no bail
what do i do in these county blues?
gettin’ battered and bruised by the you-know-who
and these fakes get to shakin’ when they face me
snakes ain’t got enough nuts to replace me
sittin’ in this livin’ h-ll, listenin’ to n-ggas yell
tryin’ to torture ’em to tell, i’m gettin’ mail
but ain’t n0body sayin’ much, the same old nuts
is makin’ bucks while these sl-ts is gettin’ f-cked
they violated my probation
and it seems i’ll be goin’ on a long vacation
meanwhile it ain’t easy… no, it ain’t easy

[hook]
it ain’t easy being me
will i see the penitentiary or will i stay free?
it ain’t easy being me
will i see the penitentiary or will i stay free?
it ain’t easy being me
will i see the penitentiary or will i stay free?
it ain’t easy being me
will i see the penitentiary or will i stay free?
it ain’t easy being me
will i see the penitentiary or will i stay free?
it ain’t easy being me
will i see the penitentiary or will i stay free?
