Yeah.

[Hook: Russell Lee] [x2]
In The Ghetto, I’m livin’ in a ghetto world
In The Ghetto (In The Ghetto), it’s a struggle but I gotta maintain.

[Trae:]
Welcome to the ghetto, where forever be the same
Hard times, got my people unable to maintain
Everytime I look around, it’s somebody doin’ bad
That’ll put you in the grave, for som’ing they never had
Everyday in the hood it be the same thing
Poverty runnin’ my people, so they love pain
And I don’t know if it’s wrong, but still I know it ain’t right
I seen alot of people die in the street life
The other day it hit my heart when I watch the news
A lil’ girl got killed while she was ‘sleep in her room
And she ain’t deserve to die ’cause that’s a kid dawg
Them niggas took the life, that she ain’t get to live at all
Sometimes I wanna help the ghetto, but it ain’t gon do a thing
Cause I know that they ignant & that’s a god damn shame
It’s an everyday task, tryin’ to live a good life
Inside of the ghetto, where everybody be shife.

[Hook: Russell Lee]
In The Ghetto, I’m living in a ghetto world
In The Ghetto (In The Ghetto), it’s a struggle but I gotta maintain.

[Yung Redd:]
Welcome to the South, niggas ain’t sleep at all
Ery’body out on the block, stay duckin’ them laws
A couple niggas on parole, hustlin’ by the store
I’m tellin’ that ain’t the way to go, play your role
But you don’t hear me though, this what I’m livin’ fo’
Hustle ’til I get mine, grind cause I need mo’
Shots release, too late for you to scream peace
This how it is in the street, leavin’ is obsolete
And still I maintain seein’ the same thing
Sometime I scream my brain just lookin’ for a change
But day in & day out, I move in & move out
Keep my bidness discrete, I’m on a paper route
I wasn’t broke for nothin’ still I was learnin’ some’ing
If you ain’t been through nothin’ then you ain’t seen nothin’
This how it really is around my way
Where anybody can get it, anytime of the day.

[Lil’ Boss:]
I analyze the block, babies are runnin’ round with glocks
Dope in they socks, can’t skip hot so fuck the cops
Moving from crumbs to bricks, nigga these slums are thick
I try to tell my lil’ niggas, but they think they slick
These white folks don’t play, they gon’ hot your way
They try to give you 20 years, just for livin’ the wrong way
And who’s to say now-a-day, right from wrong
They ain’t livin’ how we live, so they can’t get in my zone
We get chased home for stones & laws wanna break our bones
In places in & out a high cell to roam
And that’s probably the reason we goin’ crazy
Pissed at poverty ’cause the system tryin’ to fade me
Lately, I’ve been tryin’ to stay out of trouble
But it’s hard to stop from coppin’ the sack & flippin’ the double
Don’t catch the wrong route, when you on that Metro
There’s a sign in front of the hood, that says “Welcome To the Ghetto.”

[Hook: Russell Lee] [x2]
In The Ghetto, I’m livin’ in a ghetto world
In The Ghetto (In The Ghetto), it’s a struggle but I gotta maintain.

[Spice 1:]
I wonder if heaven got a ghetto
But b-burnin’ down the b-block, I put the petal to the medal
Runnin’ with my cousins in Texas, Lil’ Cross & Big Money
My nigga Trae & Lil’ Joe, nigga all action
In the ghetto, I’ve been ridin’ through the hood for years
And ain’t a damn thing changed, mama still sheddin’ tears
Niggas fresh out the Penn, some niggas just goin’ in
Some niggas gon’ run & stutter turnin’ they self in
Never seen a black man flyin’ dope on a plane
But they lock us up for it shackle us with chains
Welcome to the ghetto, ghetto starts & mob cars
With bullet holes in it, niggas shot up & scarred
But still livin’ driven by the game itself
To stay alive in these cold streets, mashin’ for wealth
Up in this ghetto, O.G.’s P’s & C’s
Thugs, pimps, players hit the 6-4’s or 3’s.

[Hook: Russell Lee] [x2]
In The Ghetto, I’m livin’ in a ghetto world
In The Ghetto (In The Ghetto), it’s a struggle but I gotta maintain.

[Russell Lee:]
Yeah, ghetto ghetto life
Of mi-ine, li-li-li-life life.

Welcome to the ghetto.
