Good Die Young
[Intro- Kon Artis] Dawg, I shouldn't have left. They wouldn't
have tried this shit if I was wit' ya. Maybe we would have
picked another time, or maybe chose anotha way. Or maybe my
prayers would have convinced him that choose another soul. Shit,
it’s just me and my man Tony now. Man you look so peaceful right
now...how can I argue with that. They say...
[Kon Artis - Chorus] They say that the good die young, that’s
why I think that you should have fun (when your young). Cause
time won't wait for no one, when God calls, you gotta go home.
They say the good die young, (die young), that's why I know that
we gon' have fun. In this life cause you only get one. When God
calls for me, don't cry I just went home.
[Kon Artis] It's true that everybody heard, there mama say
everyday's like this, when you see, one of your friends die in
the mist. In the struggle, until the circumstances it's a risk
that they take, just to prove a point to a friend. Even then,
accidents are prone to happen to any man, or woman that's dumb
enough to pretend. That her, God won't hold them accountable for
sins. If they commit, and they try to repent themselves to
repent. But I guess that’s just the way things go,
I was blessed to see 24. To wake up to that how "My Name Is"
video, motivated me to write what I wrote. And I knew my little
brother sold dope, and mom and daddy want to move off Ro'. I did
it, I still got a lot to prove and show, I just wish we ain’t
have to lose Bugz to the struggle Cause you know...
[Bizarre] I know you used to Bizarre on some silly shit, but
niggas in my clique is dying quick.
In Detroit, niggas don't party, they pull a fo-fo out, snatch
off bacardis. That’s why I keep the pistol under the trunk, I'm
27 years old, too old to be gettin' jumped. And fuck rap, I miss
Carnell Pitts, B-U-G-Z, tattered on my wrist. Me and you in the
Jeep, listen to swing ol' beats, it's a shame me and Fuzz don't
even speak. I got married, my wife name is Dee, peace to 31 and
51-50, I miss you.
[Kuniva] I remember back on that tragic day, my phone rung, and
Bizarre's voice tellin' me, Bugz was gone home. It was like a
knife piercing my chest and I couldn't breath, I didn't wanna
accept it, didn't wanna believe it. And I swear with this weight
dawg, I cried so hard literally, Denaun had to carry me to the
car. While I stand in this booth now it’s tearin' me apart but I
had to let it out cause it was tearin' at my heart. Cause he died
over somethin so petty and so small, a human life is so very
precious. I hope ya'll understand how I'm feelin' cause I love
you Bugz. I wanna rhyme wit' you, laugh wit' you, hug you Bugz.
But I can't and you was so close to seein' dreams,
a coward came along and took you away from the team. So don't
mistake this track, it's just another song. This goes out to
everyone who lost a loved one cause you know. . .
[Proof] They say it's never too late to have an early childhood,
if I could turn back the hands of time, God should. Forgive what
I did as a kid to run blocks, now my dreams are just screams,
cops, and gun shots. The fun stops when your homie's up in a
box, my dude E-Bole, rest his soul, snuffed by the cops. I use
to quartion'(?) a lot, if there's a guy by me say somethin'. If
you love her so much why didn't you gave nothin'? When he took
my homie, Snook was only in 11th grade, now I hope to see your
face at the heaven gates. It ain't never late in the game, this
hatin' remains, with a grudge to see slugs break through my
frame. My heart aches with the pain, the life in his breath, we
gotta have fun now, there’s only minutes left. In the depth,
distress young as a? Did to get? Off my fallen homies who ain't
got enough years. I miss y'all.
[Swifty] When I was younger I knew four brothers that wasn't
wise. That crash and the driver died, my partner on the
passenger side was paralyzed. And I'm surprised by the look of
that ride that the other peeps survived. Nine months later
another one died, somebody shot him in the side when he was
startin' up his ride. 3 years go by, I made a hell of a run, and
that’s when Funky got done, Joey playin' wit' guns, and Tookie
over funds, Carty was my man, and Reggie, I wish that I was wit
you in that van. And Bugz if it wasn't for you, you know I
wouldn't be standin' in this booth. That’s the truth, I miss
