    Remember When

    Post  LunioLuny on Tue Dec 14, 2010 9:34 pm

    f/ H.A.W.K, Mista Madd

    Say L, hold these keys man
    What kind of wheels is those brah
    (man them boys got 20's dog, Lorenzos)
    Man, I ain't never seen shining like that
    Say H.A.W.K, what y'all use to do fool
    When you was growing up

    I use to sit and watch the Flinstones, Gucci rolls and herringbones
    Bezel sets and baguettes, while talking on my cell phone
    From Bo-Bo's to Air Macs, low cars to horse backs
    Hoopties to Cadillacs, water guns to chrome gats
    Levis to Guess jeans, black and white to big screens
    Six by nine to 18's, Bumsalack to sipping lean
    Regals with white walls, 20 inch with screens fall
    Michael Jackson off the wall, to MJG and 8Ball
    Screw house to wrecking flows, to BET on videos
    Zig-zags and yellow bags, to Glad sacks and optimos
    Fist fight to gun play, sawed-offs to a.k.'s
    Spitting flows at talent shows, as the H-A-W-K
    Riding on the Metros, pushing a six double O
    Smoking cess to endo, fill it up with petro
    Fixing on my lego, let go of my ego
    Get in with my little bro, getting up when the rooster blow

    [Lil Flip]
    I remember Kangaroos and afro curls, always running after girls
    Trying to sneak in Natural World, BB gun shooting at the squirrels
    Candy red on tricycles, training wheels on bicycles
    Sugar Daddy's, Pixie Stix, peppermints and side pickles
    Loaded toes and Scooby Doo, some of the things we use to do
    Roller skate now roller blades, Ivy Leagues to holding fades
    Blow-Pop rings and diamond things, herringbones to bezeltines
    Cadillacs to limousines, ironing jeans to being clean
    GI Joes to Tonka toys, eating Willy Wonka boy
    Riding in my uncle's car, wanting to become a star
    Having dreams to be like Mike, hooping in my all black Nikes
    Flying kites and shooting dice, sneaking in the movies twice
    Staying up and watching Cops, walking outside in Michael socks
    Being afraid of chicken pox, check my bowl on Magnavox
    Running up and down my block, sweating cause the sun is hot
    I use to ride the city bus, now I'm pulling Hummers out

    I remember brothers getting dumped off, in ditches and bayous
    Boys gave head jobs, and all I saw was hairdo's
    Pimps drove Lacs and dob hats, with chrome gats
    Hustlers stack paper, with the players and macs
    Police burns in the hood, because somebody just got jacked
    Every girl I slam they call, I told em call me back
    Haters got backhanded, because they were always talking smack
    Instigators chit chat, and were known for spreading rumors
    Ballers went from stabs, to buying more of consumers
    I use to eat on tuna, now it's shrimp and caviar
    I use to be a virgin, now I have menage tois
    I use to drink on soda, now I'm sipping mixed with bar
    I use to stay in the ghetto, now I'm a ghetto superstar
    I recall when I couldn't rap, now my rap game's up to par
    From then to now it's funny, Jabos to Armani
    AP became a business man, that's all about his money

    [Mista Madd]
    Back in the days I was young, I'm not a kid anymore
    But sometimes, I wish that I could be a kid again
    I use to wear a swatch watch, now I only wear Movado
    Went from bare foot on a bus, to holding keys to Monte Carlos
    Now it's a big body Expedition, showing my naked ass provado
    Went from hood to all good, shh playing a game like huh brah
    Backyard nickel and dime that, now boys be moving birds
    Use to carry my knife special, now it's gats and smoking sherm
    Use to mix at house parties, freestyling to Whodini
    Now I'm signing rappers to paid in full, eating shrimp and fetichini
    Boy I use to ride big wheels, while wearing them Chuck Taylors
    Now it's Jordans, Air Macs, even pink-green gators
    Use to be sneaking in Lover's Land, or at the drive-in movies
    Now it's Tinsel Town or Motel 6, where this hoe can do me
    Use to watch freestyle the man, or Rap City on BET
    Now I star in sitcoms, movies and got my own video show on t.v., what

    Should of seen it I was right there, when a problem jumped off
    Rounds got dumped off, leaving niggas bumped off
    Always trying to get the hook up, leaving your girl shook up
    Women breaking my pager, phone line you can't look up
    We had ice on us, merchandise on us
    Busting at other hoods, when they had a price on us
    Listening to flow tapes, people saying rewind it
    Pulling out my piece, and bystanders get blinded
    From winter to summer time, there wasn't no leaving our block
    When the laws made it hot, we was freezing our block
    Man we got enough money, to make my neck look pretty
    Cause we done made enough money, to make my check look pretty
    Rapping at talent shows, saying phrase too frequent though
    Niggas talk about Fasachi, we roll that in Regal though
    Seein niggas Redd capping on, the comedy bout my chaperone
    My dress code is casual, but all of a sudden I'm valuable

    cheap diamond rings
