Written By: Luigi Vocaturo

Lui Will Prosper

Verse 1-Lui will prosper proper, I will make progress, out of the projects, that means to live life legal, im not in the ghetto right now, put I’am its people, others see it through a peep hole, to much news deliberately displaying, how were deliberately spraying, and im liberally saying, that Im literally taking time out to solve the problem, you see government should have a separate code of laws, when for the projects, but it still wouldn’t solve shit, cause you don’t understand, you get education from a man, I get my education in grams, you got everything figured out in a textbook, but where im at problems get solved by techs,

Verse 2- I think ive abandon my talent, fuck it/ right now its about getting this shit to the public/ get them to bump it/ earn a relationship, and get them to love it/ we for the children/ in the public housing building/ I know how your feeling/ this is for you still stealing, still with blue steal and/ still killing/ and all the drugs you still dealing/ I know it hurts/ put just keep your head up wards/the guns burst/ its so common it sounds like when birds chirp/ but what’s worse, is there failure to fix it/ and leave to be dead, and become another statistics,/ show we gotta conflict/ like how the hell you gonna fix these problems

Verse 3- yall tripping on some bullshit, worry about your own kid/ we grown men/we getting old and, this rpoutine smoking weed, is getting boring/ and im sorry, but I feel its important/ you need to no they want us selling drugs, they support it/ ,they make more profit than us, they all for it/ as long as they keep snorting, made it addictive on purpose, but we just ignore it, see theres a trade off, the gov’t lets them import it/ there allot more than, what I can say what I can describe/ but its easy to see open your eyes/for some we live with it, its like its infinite, and will never finish/ other listen to rap , make up an act, and take interest/ but for us it actually what we experience/ political figures preaching, for a solution/ mean while they been producing the whole shit the whole time polluting are mind/ made us think its our fault/ for the tkilling amounngst us/ youngsters see us they wanna carry guns for, all the wrong reasons/ funny how they spreaded the crack epidemic/ they give it to us to really make money for them like an investment/ gave us weapons to make us feel protected/ but then when we sell shit/ we get arrested/ by the same people who let it in/ god damn streets ain’t runned by us, it run by the gov’t/

Chorus-And I no god has a plan for me/ whether I struggle on my own/ or raise a family/ive been told/ I wont be able to reach my goal/it goes to show what u know/ cause people been feeling my flow, so fuck all ya’ll
