Times So Hard

This song is by Young Bleed and appears on the album My Balls And My Word (1998).

We won't be neglected, we won't be denied
We will not be hated 'cause we're hustlin' to survive
Times so hard, tryin' to make it
Times so hard, tryin' to make it

Now all jokes aside, I'm having to realize I'm still breathing
Since a baby teasin', I knew I was gonna live
Even reasons after celebrated seasons, we was broke
Hope was selling dope or robbing these other folks

I know every bad confrontation that we was facing
I'm a young black male what would you do in my situation
Lately dozen altercation that win like a deck of cards
Sayin' we all out if you gonna accept the lord

We won't be neglected, we won't be denied
We will not be hated 'cause we're hustlin' to survive
Times so hard, tryin' to make it
Times so hard, tryin' to make it

Bad times, my cousin had done
I sent two G's to his wife and son I'm sayin'
Dear God, don't take me
Why these bitches and these niggas tryin' ta break me

I see dead presidents, my friends get bent
And mama in the ghetto tryin' to pay the rent
In high school, used to be kings and queens
Came home of a two, now they jackers and fiends, ugh
Survival play ghetto games, lose your life these days
For some yards or gold rings

We won't be neglected, we won't be denied
We will not be hated 'cause we're hustlin' to survive
Times so hard, tryin' to make it
Times so hard, tryin' to make it

Can you visualize perfection in a section of a crib
And a yard full of ghetto kids
When I was dreamin' and creamin' and wasn't makin' no money
Steady hustlin' high to make it for niggas to die for me

That's gonna forever be real
And nigga, that's regardless feelin' like I'm still in my faith
I'm hollowed headed and heartless
Balancing life on a triple beam and gambling with the arts of fate

And niggas got the nerve to playa hate
A young nigga in this game to survive with a 45
Lookin' at the sky gettin' so high nigga
Above the law with underguard right between the sky and the earth
Ain't touchin' dirt, claim to the dirty game for what it's worth

We won't be neglected, we won't be denied
We will not be hated 'cause we're hustlin' to survive
Times so hard, tryin' to make it
Times so hard, tryin' to make it
