  • Fifty, fifty
    Ferrari, Ferrari
    Shooter, shooter

    I was innocent then, I ain't do no wrong
    She said, "you mommy little man," I said, "yep, uh huh"
    She was everything to me, when she came, I just lit up
    Sunday morning I was so sharp, all did up
    It was welfare hustlin', they killed her for that
    The first shot, bullet wound in my back
    I'm fucked up, look at my sneakers, I'm fucked up
    Now I'm on my own, mommy gone
    Sam said, "you a young boy, why your clothes look so old?
    You don't need fish, little nigga, you need a pole
    You don't need no new kicks, you need an O"
    Chop that, bag it, get right back at it
    That touched me, it hit me in my heart
    I'm a hustler, homie, you was giving me my start
    I am what I am, Sabrina's only baby
    Practicing in the mirror, pulling out my .380
    Oh man, I fucked up nana gonna kill me
    Whenever shit can go wrong it always will, see
    Seven grams of cocaine, three grams of dope
    Saint Mary medallion hanging from my rope
    Try to punk me and my gun smoke
    Look, I'm outta control, my gun go
    Off like it's legal, call the cops, you need to
    Give 'em my description, I ain't bullshittin'
    My high school sweetheart love didn't last long
    Niggas start flashing that bread and she was gone
    That hurt me like the bullet in my calf then
    My next girl was a pain in the ass
    I got two shots left, in case niggas try to get me
    That's nine shots, we just call it fifty

    Mama said the Lord gon' bless us
    Mama said, mama said
    Mama said the Lord gon' bless us
    Then in came the landlord, beef, and the stresses
    Mama said the Lord gon' bless us
    Mama said, mama said
    Mama said the Lord gon' bless us
    The dope bought the shit the food stamps couldn't get us
    Mama said the Lord gon' bless us
    That's what mama said, that's what mama said Writer/s: CURTIS JACKSON
