Blacktop Jungle

BLACKTOP JUNGLE

It's a blacktop non stop junglistic hip hop
Hustlers and pimps use the city as a backdrop
Addicts get high in the backlot, dealers use kids as a lookout a lot
You got fiends stealing as they pop off a shot
You got three time losers sunset cruisers big boy bruisers
Sunset cruisers the freaks and the shady occupy the same spot
Drivin' around black and you know you get stopped
Propositioned by an undercover cop
You bound to get a lesson that you never even thought
Mind and time get dropped the weak get soft
Men in positions of sedition get caught
Violation of volition extreme conditions
The fiends they glisten like a dream from the distance
The mean and the listless the homeless in business
That man holds his hand outstretched for a reason
Its drive by season in Los Angeles

CHORUS
It's a blacktop jungle and it's dangerous
So many out here act scandalous get out your danger kits
Can you handle this its Los Angeles home of the vandalous

Get out your danger kits where a stranger gets
Rearranged and hit on sunset strip where the strippers do flips
Smoke in the alley Friday night rally girls in the valley
Do blow you know don't get caught up in the mountains of snow
People shot up with the fame it grows fast as the mighty Mississippi flows
Don't act like you don't see crack and smoke in fact it'll make you
Insane and choke act insane and then murder she wrote
Up that creek with no paddle and no boat yeyo oh no it's a non-stop show
All you can do is be true and flow this big city livin goes fast not slow
People live and die by a yes and a no in Los Angeles

CHORUS

In the blacktop jungle man that's how it goes
You see people mumble and the trouble it grows
Mass populations the Haitians the Christians
Jews Palestinians the Indian nation the ground vibrates
In the golden state the gangs carry heat to hit people they hate
Times up oh no too late don't debate
Cash and corruption and chaos create
A date to arrange with the master of fate
Side step please step don't walk don't talk
Sidewalk spot outlined in chalk
On the five o'clock news watch crews get caught

CHORUS
