Lyric Where I m From


Thats Where I m From
Thats Where I m From

Back in the hub we used to drop madel
Contemplate in hell
The stories I could tell would
Freak your mind, and wreck your brain
The thoughts I would have
would drive most insane
The band playin Rain
Gettin Down wit Jimmy
Hendrix, and Page
Make up the rage
Back in the Huddle
McLou s back yard
Me and D was starvin
And times were hard
Danny used to roll through
Schemin on the hustle
Credit cards and slang
and M-MC bangin
Leathal used to come with his reel to reel
We didn t have no deal
But that wasn t the point, we d
Rock a funky joint
Then we d rock another
The only thing to eat
Was some bread, and peanut butter
Back to all the females that beded me
In case you ever wondered
They didn t forget me
These are the times that I always think of
And this is dedicated to the ones I love

[Chorus]
That s where I m from
Where re you goin if you don t look back
What s the use of havin ends
If you lose all your friends [x4]

Paintin on the wall
Ten years gone by
Playin on the stereo
With the volume kinda low
Scheme Team s comin
Bring me along
We gonna throw a hut party
Till the break of dawn
With the Soul poppin, thats Soul Poetry
Chameleon playin bringin wit that team
Bring a tab and a 40 and a bag of weed
That s all I need G
Caue I aint Freaky
Trippin for days
Runnin the maze
Goin down to Venice
Sippin on the Guinness
These are the times that I always think of
And this is dedicated to the ones I love

[Chorus]

Now times have change
And I m on tour
And I don t see my friend every day no more
And cause they dont see me
They think I ve changed
But, I the same motherfucker no doubt
What s it all about
I thought we was people
I m tryin to get mine
I thought you had my back
Man, I can t understand
They used to slap my hand
Ask me for a grand
And run wit your man
Behind my back and diss me
If you wanna fuck me
first ya gotta kiss me

[Chorus (x3)]
