This song is by Benzino and appears on the album The Benzino Project (2001).

Yo, this is
B
Brown [Intro:
Bobby
Brown]
We gon lay ya back on this
Benzino track, right
Two times [Chorus 2x:
Female] (Bobby
Brown)
Eye for an eye (Ghetto, ghetto)
Strong will survive (Yeah, yeah)
Look deep inside (My ghetto child)
Everyday struggle to stay alive
Ghetto child gon learn to fly (Ghetto child)
Bet cha wanna ride [Bobby
Brown]
Now being born in the ghetto, it's hard, believe me
Not just a job, anything ain't easy
You go through rough times, you go through hard times
But what I got is a man's best friend
And times even tougher than that I know I'll fail staying in a house that your bed shield
Only bulletproof is if you don't need outside
Brothers'll stick you up and in it they'll take pride
'Cause if not, you get popped, ya be another victim of homicide
It's a living hell, you got to be the guy
You got to be live-full
Peer pressure pounds and if you ain't stressful
Black to feed the back
Your not see-through, your not even equal
Never second guess a professor [Chorus 2x]
But that's the price you pay being born in the ghetto [*in the ghetto* echoes] [Mr.
Gzus]
Let me explain to you, un-hunh, some game is the truth
Mainly I speak to the youth I used to hustle drugs with a crew I was young and green and hungry, what's a nigga to do?
We used to smoke weed on the roof and let the ions loose
Lost to the streets
While shorty saw us off the ninety proof
Loved to rhyme so throw me a beat and flow would make the joint complete
At the same time I gots ta eat
Took a stands, stole a seat jumped in the game to compete
Unaware of the heat, there's was def from cheek to cheek
No sleep for two weeks stated all kinds of beef
Been through hell and back before I was grown
No pops to teach me to how spread my wings and fly, I did that on my own
Made it this far and I'ma keep goin'
Y'all ain't knowin', I'm still here and keep growin', from a ghetto child [Chorus 2x] [Bobby
Brown]
Being born in the ghetto, the ghetto, the ghetto
It ain't nothing about hits
It's about these grits
Being born in the ghetto, the ghetto, the ghetto
Being born in the ghetto, the ghetto, the ghetto
Being born in the ghetto, the ghetto, the ghetto
Being born in the ghetto, the ghetto, the ghetto
Being born in the ghetto, the ghetto, the ghetto
Born in the ghetto, the ghetto, the ghetto
Being born in the...
Being born in the ghetto, the ghetto
Being born in the ghetto, the ghetto
Being born in the ghetto, the ghetto, the ghetto
Being born in the ghetto
Being born in the ghetto, the ghetto
Don't make it up, don't make it up
Being born in the ghetto, the ghetto, the ghetto [Chorus 2x]
