Lil Scrappy - Livin' In The Projects Lyrics




[Chorus - 2Pac w/ Lil Scrappy ad-libs]
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects
Broke, with no lights on (And I was)
Livin' in the projects (Uh-huh)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects
Broke, with no lights on (And you was)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Broke, with no lights on (And we was)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Here we go)
Broke, with no lights on

[Verse 1]
Growin' up on Section A, momma in the otha room cryin'
Cuz she got bills to pay, and it ain't no chores to play
Only thang outside is a sand box and a gate to hate
And the show ain't gon' show money, soul of a show money
Only thang around town, Brooklyn is dat dope money (Livin' in the projects)
Dem boys on the corna, and they pockets gittin' stronga
Momma did it fo' the hunger
We sold about a hundred, err'body still runnin'
And we sittin' on the block
Cuz the dope feigns rollin'
Videos, I ain't trynna be no rap
I ain't trynna be no act
I'm tryin' to make a stack up (Livin' in the projects)
I ain't gotta call practice
So if I'm on the streets, then come greet or tear my back up (Livin' in the projects)
Tha police betta call back up
Cuz if I can't feed my daughter - I'ma come and rob ya (And I was...)

[Chorus - 2Pac w/ Lil Scrappy ad-libs]
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects
Broke, with no lights on (And I was)
Livin' in the projects (Uh-huh)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (What's goin' on)
Broke, with no lights on (And you was)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Broke, with no lights on (And we was)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Yea)
Broke, with no lights on

[Verse 2]
Rememba when the food stamps used to look like dollas
I ain't have no clothes so the ho's wouldn't holla
Git outta here would all a nigga wann'
When I hit 'em lights all the roaches hit the flo' (Damn)
Momma had got in to a accident
It's fucked up, mayn she can't even pay the rent
And the heat and light been out eva since
So you know when a nigga gone, it git cold in the bitch
You know what I'ma do? - I'ma go git rich
Put on my ski mask and go hit me a liq
It's all you could do when you young and from Tha Bricks
I'm from the hood, lil' shawty, I'ma represent (And I was...)

[Chorus - 2Pac w/ Lil Scrappy ad-libs]
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects
Broke, with no lights on (And I was)
Livin' in the projects (Uh-huh)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (What's goin' on)
Broke, with no lights on (And you was)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Broke, with no lights on (And we was)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Yea)
Broke, with no lights on

[Verse 3]
Now it was neva eva 'posed to be like this
My teacha told me I wadn't gon' be shiit
A surely young nigga when his dad got rich
A-Town ho' you can suck my dick
Now you made it outta Tha Projects
A young nigga gittin' cash
Gotta keep dat steady flow runnin' while the time pass
Can't let 'em git you down, move in or move out
Gotta git dat money shawty, dat whudd I'm talkin' bout
When time git hard betta pray to God
Don't stretch the dope game on the boulevard
No (No), my daughter neva will
And if I have to kill, she gonna git anutha meal
Shiit, play the hand I was dealed
And if a man stepped to me i got a right to grab the steal
Chyea, I'm on top and I still rememb-a
Those cold ass days in Decemba, and I was...

[Chorus - 2Pac w/ Lil Scrappy ad-libs]
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects
Broke, with no lights on (And I was)
Livin' in the projects (Uh-huh)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (What's goin' on)
Broke, with no lights on (And you was)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Broke, with no lights on (And we was)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Aye)
Livin' in the projects (Yea)
Broke, with no lights on

  75. Bret Plymire

    @abear902 you're*

  76. Josh Fasano

    2 People aren't living in the projects

  77. Chris Quoyeser

    2pac i thought originally did it.

  78. IllE90

    it's good that young rappers like lil scrappy show respect to Pac, seem's like present artists forgot who started everything ;)

  79. ddavisjr128

    @fultontaylor And on a side note, "real" Americans use food stamps as well.

  80. ddavisjr128

    @fultontaylor i don't why people like you make such ignorant comments. just because you lived in the projects, hood, or whatever you want to call it doesn't mean you're uneducated nor does it mean that they aren't working a real job. If you haven't noticed the economy has been in its worst condition since the Great Depression. College education isn't cheap whether you're an in-state or out-of state student. Because of this terrible economy, people struggle just to get a simple part time job.

  81. Janis LAalaldl

    true life

  82. Imani Gadis

    @vaggelis1990tel

  83. Vaggelis Telligiannidis

    greek respect for the song...

  84. lildaves919

    this is one of the hottest albums. dont know why it didnt sell atleast 2 mill

  85. BlackAmericanMusic

    Very true

  86. 4CVL

    I miss deep songs like that. I can imagine my life listening to this, feel what he's saying. Everyone knows the music industry is fucked up now, but damn I miss the old days. Wayne was good back in the day pre Carter II but now, I'm tired of hearing his voice...Drake does have a nice flow but its music like this that needs to be put out. Lupe, KRS1, Rakim, Nas, Eminem, Common, Talib, Mos Def that's music. Lil Scrappy needs to get back to his roots like this and he can go right up with them.

  87. MitchelAmes

    why dont they make real shit like this anymore, instead its fucking drake and lil wayne talking about cars, hoes and money.

  88. Joshua Perkins

    i aint have no clothes so the hoes wouldnt holla, k mart gear was all a nigga wore. real shit!

  89. Domonique Nelson

    love this song....u can relate to it

  90. BlackAmericanMusic

    @qnznyc I tried but Youtube took it down and gave me a warning lol

  91. BRU513330

    man this is some real shit 4 ya

  92. hennessy0623
