Typed by:

Memories play back like film
I flash back we was little niggas livin most real
1989's when we first met
We first clicked over convo' gettin twisted
In dunn grand earth crib cuttin outta school
Watchin cable it seemed like the other day
Through the eyes of a stranger we was kids
But in our own minds we was grown mens
Outside on the block we would play the bench
And y'all play the rock every chance y'all got
As I sat back and just watched hey, what can I say?
The same back then as I am today
I can recall me, Jemel and Jamal
In the room drinkin straight vodka with they moms
When I walk home with the big nefertiti charm
Back with the light blue camoflauge suit
God me and Hav' doin it hard, tryin to get on
We sampled songs on the box with record and pause
Killer B didnt even get his first firearm
And I was still holdin one shot derringers

[Hook: Prodigy]
Who would think anyone of us would cease to exist
Left with just thoughts of the past to reminisce
Sometimes I see a chick walkin past with ya kids
Or find an old flicka of some 1-2-5th
All the shit that we been through it boils to this?
Dun, I wish we could start it all over again

Ninety-five, we on top tourin the states
A lotta times we even took the click overseas
Came along way from the hallway
Sitting in the staircase with Bacardi
Bring the honeycomb speaker outside to bang
While we would share drinks with the other that came
Triple L stayed takin they cash in dice games
Killer Black grew to keep an ice grill, dunn was not playin
Yammy, the most Infamous told me one day
"Put the bogies down 'fore I pound you out P"
But it was all love, we was eash others dunns
We held each other down, borrowed each other guns
Its hard to believe that niggas so strong 
could die so easily forever be gone
I could still feel the web of your palm, against mine 
cause we did our hand shake all the time
Why it have to be your time to go and not mines?
Spilled tears contemplating to my delf cryin
All the laughs we shared and fights we had
All the nights we would get nice, damn
Plates of food we split in half
I dedicate the rest of my life to all my niggas that passed


What the fuckin deal, motherfuckin Scarface nigga, killer
For Bean, Fugi, Gooey, (I can't take no more nigga), Corey
Black Ed, the fuck, knahmsayin?  Ill Will burnin
Harry, fuck yo, I can't take no more man
Frankie, Spank, whattup man?  Straight up

Grandma Brooks, straight up my pops man
Straight up man, that's it
All my dead, all my dead
Man, the little babies man, no more man
Abortion babies man, I can't take no more man
I'll never forget you, all my dead it's all love man
Motherfuckin Yambo, in a minute, we'll be there
Motherfuckin Yammy, straight up, I can't wait
You was my strength nigga, I miss y'all
I can't believe you gone nigga
What the fuck happened?
Ain't nobody else goin away man
You ain't takin nuttin else from me man
Nobody can't take nuttin else from me man that's it
I dare you!  Come try, it's over man
You can't take nuttin else from us yo..

That's my word, I put my life on it
I'll be next nigga, straight up!
I stand up for that
Cause ain't none of my niggaz goin, that's enough
We had enough
It's the Veteran's Memorial right here man, straight up man
We love y'all, one love..
