I am, Chicago is...

I am Chicago. 

Chicago is

only two glocks for one block

get shot at bus stops

hide out from white cops

if he flip-flops he's an OPP



Now we on a mission

we born with ambition 

and we don't need permission

we can't afford tuition

in these economical conditions 

but listen 

no one is safe not even the kids


If thats a surprise

you don't know what

Chicago is..

because Chicago, I am.
