[MC Eiht]
Wake your punk ass up
The MC Eiht's back in the muthafucking house
Kicking the straight gansta shit for teh 9-1
You know what I'm saying, yea
Growing up in the hood, yea boy, 1984
Was the year my peers didn't know what was in store
A little hard head kid came abade
Time to pay my dues, learn the tricks of the trade

And at home, it's the same ass story
Mom's treat me like she don't even know me

But my younger brother's got much clout
I can't take this shit so I bones the hell out
And roll wit the pack of wicked muthafuckas
No shorts are taken, we're down black brothers
A little nigga wit no problems at all
Fucked up and killed my first 8-ball

Quick up the stairs so little sucker stop looking
Stagger to the house so I can collect my whooping

But watch out cause a little nigga's up to no good
Growin' up in the hood
("Life ain't nuttin but bitches and money")
("Cause in the city you live and let die")
("Nutting but bitches and money")[MC Chill]
I got hard times and realize, ?(skate)? sometimes I wonder
But it just seems that the hood could took me under

Police sweat my tip and keep harrassing
Trying to lock me up cause I keep on blasting

Community trying to shut me out
But the money keeps flowing and I got much clout
Wit the cluckers, the brother back street punk suckers
Try to break me out fool, you be a short muthafucka

Always strapping, eager to peel a cap
I set up a trap, put your foot to a nap
Cause I grew up fast on the wrong side of the law
So watch me take 2 to your jaw

Don't enter my hood homeboy
Not a robocop, a robogansta, ready to destroy
I take chances cause life to me ain't no good
Growin' up in the hood
("Life ain't nuttin but bitches and money")
("Where I'm at if you're soft, you're lost")
("Nuttin but bitches and money")[MC Eiht]
1987, I'm back on the scene, out of jail, I'm legit
And I'm fucking up shit

I'm ready to peel a sucker's cap
And I heard that my hood was making snaps

As I precede to make my riches
Just like the neighborhood kingpin, pimp, and all these bitches

Task force trying to roll deep
But I'm playing these punk fools cheap

Niggas rolled by and try to blast, it didn't work
I seen the bullets flying and fool, I hit the dirt
Bullets fly through the window
Hits my brother, down goes my mother

As I'm rolling, I'm hitting my switches
Looking for the punk ass, sons of bitches
I found them, before I kill 'em, I said you fucked up good
Got ta handle that, growin' up in the hood
(Chorus)Yea-a-a-a[MC Chill]
A brother's on the run, I've got a hand in my stash box
Wanted cause I'm serving them the potent fat rocks
And my face is like a household name
Everybody warns their kids about the dope game

But I'm still makin my profit
And the one time just can't stop it

So I keep hiding my face
No time to waste, they got me on the chase
Now the neighborhood's on my line
Cause some punk ass fool had drop the dime

5-0 at my doo' at 8 o'clock
Rush to the toilet so I could flush the rock
Out the backdoor, freeze, I heard a shout
Am I sho', yo I guess I got no clout
But it's murder one, I'm the victim, damn, that ain't good
Growin' up in the hood
