Track Name: 20 Years In The Point
20 YEARS IN THE POINT

Spent 20 years up in east point Georgia

Verse 1:

93 94
I would be around 9 years old
2 dimes ago
My mom signed a loan on a home so that one day I could own it
Been raised in the Point, since Paul D. West
name in the streets like Auburnfest
roots are Raleigh I was born in Rex,
But zone 4's where a brother been known to rest

Same spot where I got my lone arrest, it's home, police suggest that we only guests though, but ...still know I gotta globe to trek, where I'll be in 10 years, I can only guess, but if you ever hear somebody say oh he's fresh, you know It's OBVI-OUS, cuz I'm from the SOU-TH
West,
And that's home of the A-Town's Best

Who made you wanna get that Lac, then dip that black, dro in the wind when the window cracks, with the tempo high, like a disco track, or a funky ride laid back
Say it ain't stacks, And daddy fat sacks Wrong place, wrong time boy you might smacked,
The south got something to say, know that,
But now everybody wanna do it for the trap,

Tri-cities hi, I'd listen to Wu more,
Niggas started saying that I think I'm from New York
I'd rather b than hear master p...
But Fuck your views, I know the Barbie screwed yours,
I been the A, you just in the way,
I was MJQ when you were MBK,
What Pimp C say? Yeah I'm still east coast,
Blaylock of the Hip-Hop's NBA,

Verse 2:

Greenbriar, represent,
We were teens hired at Peppermint,
Rest In Peace to Seth, what a senseless death,
but you're heaven bound cuz you were heaven sent
While I'm still below,
Off Sylvan road,
Headland and Delowe,
I went to Eddie for golds,
A couple dollars for a movie,
You can holler at a cutie, then take her to the level below,

I was balling for the AAU, up in Run n Shoot, I got 5 City Trophies, I loved to hoop
Wasn't much to do, if you were just a youth, torn ACL, I needed something new
But It was basketball before studios
I could paint but it wasn't like music though, my
homeboys did dirt for the newest clothes, some
did time trying to ride trues and vogues,

A Pleasers skeezer, I've never seen, But boned one from Ni-kki's at 17
In my momma's attic getting head to CREAM, and Can it be so simple, no better themes,
Central Station was stripper training, I ain't go much but it was entertaining, I guess I'm just tuned to a different station, but it must be a reason I'm in this location,

Jax had a house off RN Martin, I could see his backyard from our apartment, it was 26 dollars for Marta cards then, often I walked to the Arden's Garden,
Lovin' It Live, got the vegan dishes,
Low key delicious, but it be expensive,
Matilda Bean for my burritos fixes, but the owners divorced, then ceased the business

Shack on Main got the meanest brisket, but I seem to miss it on each visit,
So I change plans, and hit Taco Pete or the break pad, cuz I need a Guinness,
corner tavern for a billiard night ,
for Caribbean bites, you go to Silver Delight,
Pizza Valley was all halal til they dropped the ball, and put the pig on a slice,

After hours, hitting Lu's up
The first time that I ever saw a woo blunt
I ain't puff the shit, it didn't touch my lips
If it did, I probably woulda threw up
I never put screw in a huge cup,
But it's the place where I grew up,
S5 on the red line
1 Deuce down and 1 deuce up
