This song is a classic but I always felt like it needed some answers [Verse 1: Papoose]
Because Jadakiss be spittin' that shit
Because the industry don't wanna see an artist get rich
Because most of these dudes just there for the ride
Because when the drama pop, [?]
Because they make money off of the jail
Because they want us to catch three felonies and die in a cell
Because the plan was for CDs to get rеplaced
And even though it's lovе, keep the [?] in case
Because they don't wanna see us be leaders
Because now you got the hood dyin' over jordan sneakers (wow)
Because they don't plan for a rainy day
Because nowadays, snitchin' is okay
Because Biggie and Pac was the greatest
Because they got slave minds and the owner of [?] is racist
Because they can't shoot this [?]
Because fathers gotta teach they sons how to use a condom
Because[Hook: Anthony Hamilton]
All that I’ve been given
It's this pain that I’ve been livin'
They got me in the system
Why they gotta do me like that?
Tried to make it my way
But got sent on up the highway
Why? Oh why?
Why they gotta do me like that?[Verse 2: Papoose]
Because they can't get jobs at all
Because Bush made a lot of money off of the war
Because heaven needed Aaliyah closer, shoutout to D
Gods gives tough battles to its strongest soldiers
Because they don't want us reading positive words
Because Jim Crow don't wanna see us learn
