Track Name: Good Black Boy
I wonder really really (2x)

Chorus:
How hard, how hard can it be
to raise a good black boy?

What you gone do when ya lil' man get Duran Duran
hungry like a wolf for money off the books?

what you gone tell em
it's drugs on the block, think he won't sell em

it's fiends on the block, think they won't buy em
all the teens on the block, know I ain't lyin'

what you gone do?

Chorus (2x)

Long as the sun shines, if it's only one ray
it's a mighty fine day, if my son is okay

lookin' in his eyes, how he glows when they say
Daddy, what you gone show me today?

well, what can I teach my son today?
That B.I.G. was aight, Pun was just okay

and if either one of them were alive today
they wouldn't have the same place in Rap history...

or men settle grievances with guns today
so at times, it's okay to just run away

just so long as where you runnin' ain't where you stay
cuz it's some bangin' ass music you gots to face

and when you do about face and you about to face it
remember Pop Dukes showed you the basics...

man can't live on bread alone
a prophet won't get it in his home town.

Chorus (2x)

What you gone do when your lil guy get a little Guy
runnin' round callin' young chicks dumb bitch

What you gone show him?
it's yamps on the block, think they ain't hoein'?

they just wanna get high, think they won't blow him?
he got money on the sly and you ain't knowin...

what you gone do?
what you gone do?
what you gone do?

Some'll let the streets raise 'em
Some are puttin 'em in placement
It's a tough situation.
If you could do one thing, what you gone do?
Some'll let the streets raise 'em
Some are puttin 'em in placement
It's a tough situation but I tell you one thing yo...


Long as the sun shines, if it's only one ray
it's a mighty fine day, if my son is okay

lookin' in his eyes, how he glows when they say
Daddy, what you gone show me today?

well, what can I teach my son today?
what can I teach my son today?
what can I teach my son today?
what can I teach my son today?

Chorus (2x)
