Came up vibin off of nights like this
Street lights, burnin bright, softly muted by the mist
In this concrete maze
Steamy nights and hotter days
A world close to being crazed
Cloaked in that blazin city haze

Lil ghetto Picassos, breathin art into the block
Understand us, our concrete canvas exudes the power of our chalk
Hop scotchin our way to a better place, a higher plane
Color a whole new world, defyin our lives filled with pain

Swept up in the pulse of the streets
Dancin, prancin, and romancin to it slick hypnotic beats
Pop-lockin, booty rockin, our bodies the only thing in our control
All around us, life be crashin but we b clingin to our souls

Singin our songs to the moon, our one and only audience
Words of passion and pain flow as we fill ourselves with herbal essence
Lives b eternally linked, souls forever intertwined
Forged from livin and survivin in that other place and time
