Wyclef Jean - Slums Lyrics




[Wyclef Jean:]
Dearly beloved
I wanna dedicate this song
To all my refugees around the world
My shottas
My Zoe's
HM, and all the sets around the world, one gang now

[Marx Solvila:]
Little shotta boy, we gon' make it out the hood one day
No more drugs dealin', no more gunplay
The G5's landin' on the runway
You know that the world is yours
Lost a couple good friends 'long the way
Coming from the slums, we make mistakes
Yeah, yeah

[Wyclef Jean:]
Life's like a carnival every day
But we stay sucker-free, no clown face
'Cause them boys Bugs Bunny jumpin' for the carrots
Repeating everything to the Feds like parrots
But all I see's the future ahead
A new start like when I cut off my dreads
Statistically, I ain't even supposed to be here
Bad Christmas, I never seen a reindeer
You beat me, we all got our ego
You sniffin' on that Hulk though, Lou Ferrigno
We go ape, y'all just pose like ya'll killers
I know King Kong when I see him, y'all Magilla Gorillas
Ever had to face pressure?
Squeeze the crack so far up your ass
That you woke up with a ulcer
Yeah, them the homies that I know
They either deported or they ain't comin' home no more

[Marx Solvila:]
Little shotta boy, we gon' make it out the hood one day
No more drugs dealin', no more gunplay
The G5's landin' on the runway
You know that the world is yours
Lost a couple good friends 'long the way
Coming from the slums, we make mistakes
Yeah, yeah

[Jazzy Amra:]
I'm just tryna make it out the slums
And turn our dreams into reality
Little shotta boy, I'll hold you down
Until the day they come and bury me
Queen of the castle, the leader of the pack
I send my troops into battle
Sexy and classy, but don't let it fool ya
You can catch me in the cut, posted up with that Ruger
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[H1 Da Hook:]
I followed my calling
You can picture me broke and you could picture me ballin'
American gangster, the Haitian's behind me
District thirteen posted up, if you boys wanna come find me
And my shooters stay with me, a natural born leader
I'm the OG of the block, I testify like the preachers
All my niggas that's with me, take a puff of that reefer
I don't do it for myself, I do this shit for my people
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Marx Solvila:]
Little shotta boy, we gon' make it out the hood one day
No more drugs dealin', no more gunplay
The G5's landin' on the runway
You know that the world is yours
Lost a couple good friends 'long the way
Coming from the slums, we make mistakes
Yeah, yeah

[Bridge:]
I'm by the river
Don't complicate me
God ain't touched me
I ain't saved yet
I'm by the river
Please be patient
God ain't touched me
I ain't saved yet

[Marx Solvila:]
Little shotta boy, we gon' make it out the hood one day
No more drugs dealin', no more gunplay
The G5's landin' on the runway
You know that the world is yours
Lost a couple good friends 'long the way
Coming from the slums, we make mistakes
Yeah, yeah

    I split the seas in many ways to get here..
    “ statistically I ain’t even supposed to be here” your rhymes couldn’t off said better. YO! Toussaint St.Jean the album and Sweetest Girl... the video.
    I ignored this word.. but my NIGGA.. thank you.. it’s my pleasure to enjoy your music.. if it’s not to much to ask. HIT’hem with a absolute banga if ever you can of how RUTHLESS THE REFUGEE CAMPS WERE FOR HAITIANS AND CUBANS. Love the WEST INDIES WE ARE A UNIQUE BREED IN THE WORLD. We are few of a kind.!!!! Jamaica, D.R, P.R, Cuba and my Haitians! I love you all equally!!! If blood is thicker then water PITT we’re coagulated. The camps left me with PTSD LIKE A P.O.W!!! But I learn from the finest OG’s there they shape my life and molded the definition of a MAN! Right TONY. Uhh life people!!

  6. Omar Hernandez

    I shocked your hand at the Aria “Mandarin Oriental” in Las Vegas I said hey... Wyclef I’m a Refugee from Cuba from 1994 Guantanamo Bay. That’s all... and who would off thought that you came out with a refugee SONG! Thanks man I was with Haitians too I was only 11 years young. With all my heart I love you man I’m a big fan. From Cuba to Haiti I see nothing but LOVE!!! We go hard.
