The Lyrics


This parody protests the gangster rap culture and its effect on its listeners and the culture and street gang life in general. It is in no way intended to put down the more mainstream and socially acceptable rap music.

Gang life has made the rapshiddy, they bitch a spoiled spew,
They're everlasting bitchin' of a never changing view.
Such murderous warrin' tragic, like Crypts and Bloods have sold,
This rapshiddy is killin' me, so tossable what's told.

"P-Did" on his loft, chiller badness is this guy,
Their crime demands misfortune, kisses their ass good-bye.
They've sworn and worn a colored cloth that tells each what's their side,
And their code is in their colors as they're seen to wear with pride.

They move with lethal certainty as rival gangs must go,
Just engage in warfare, and why they'd fought, don't know.
Most won't reach this thing called old, gang banging with OG.
Their brain pans' lame and empty.

Loons twistin' this rapshiddy get gone 'cause drugs erode,
A gun splat causes liver shock; they turn dead in the road.
Just seems they hear the callin', that summons quickened hell,
Their mother's weep and suffer, 'cause they hadn't long to dwell.

Live on time they borrow, capped suddenly severe,
The trigger turns them ghostly, no wreath or flowing tears.
These crimes of cheapest starkness, they seem distress with whack,
This rapshiddy brings grappling, 'cause all these guys on crack.

If this parody is viewed by one banger and it makes that banger think about how foolish this lifestyle is and that banger leaves the banging life behind then it was totally worth the time spent to write it. This one was from the heart folks. I've seen my share of gang violence and I thank the good Lord above that so far none of my children have taken to the banging life style. I have had too many friends and co-workers that have had their entire world ripped apart by bangers either within their own family or one of their family members killed or maimed by bangers. I once fired a pistol at a banger that made the mistake of entering my home back in the late 80s. Another time I faced down two gang bangers in a car in front of my house at 2:00AM with my son in an upstairs window with a thirty ought six trained on them. Word got out that the people that lived at my address were crazy with guns and no one ever bothered around my house ever again. Now i have three border collies - they are the sweetest dogs on the planet until they go into protect mode. The only thing bangin' around here is my pots and pans when I get into a cooking frenzy. Thanks all for your commentary. And Pip I liked your comment quite well.
