  • So you wanna be a gangsta, bang to death
    Shoot to kill, represent your set
    Ride around in a low rider
    No matter how hard they can go
    You can go harder
    Never scared to get down, quickly bust your Mac
    Enemies get dealt with, never tuck your flag
    Stay dusted, high as a motherfucker
    Get that working, lay down another buster
    And the game, it don't matter, it becomes your wife
    Ink in your skin 'cause this shit's for life
    Pledge your life to the hood, nigga, you ain't cut for this
    Motherfucker, you can't fuck with this

    You wanna be a gangsta
    You wanna be a gangsta
    You wanna be a gangsta
    You wanna be a gangsta

    You wanna be a gangsta
    Yo, that shit looks sweet
    You wanna be a gangsta
    Kakis and chucks in your feet
    You wanna be a gangsta
    The neighborhood's elite
    You wanna be a gangsta
    You gonna die in the streets

    You don't know a thing about this
    Too many fucking rap songs
    They got you on the pay, this is your last song
    You sit behind a keyboard and you pretend you hard as fuck
    But you must've been hood, get your ass sold up
    And if you want to, boy, don't have to look too hard
    You can listen to me or fuck a prison guard
    Get caught in this world, gang banging is no fucking game
    Fuck around in the killers' fields and get blown out the frame

    I want you to listen to me
    And pay fucking attention
    If you ain't from the hood
    Stay the fuck out of the hood

    You wanna be a gangsta
    You wanna be a gangsta
    You wanna be a gangsta
    You wanna be a gangsta

    You wanna be a gangsta
    Yo, that shit looks sweet
    You wanna be a gangsta
    Kakis and chucks in your feet
    You wanna be a gangsta
    The neighborhood's elite
    You wanna be a gangsta
    You gonna die in the streets Writer/s: ERNEST T CUNNINGAN, TRACY LAUREN MARROW, VINCE DENNIS
