When I Get Free

All Eyez On Me

(Tupac Talking)

Big Syke, Noop, Payne, Bogard, Big Serv
Y'all know how this shit go (you know)

All Eyez On Me

Muthafucka, Legit
Roll up in the club and shit

All Eyez On Me
All Eyez On Me

But you know what


I bet you got it twisted
you don't know who to trust
So many playa hating niggas trying to sound like us
Say they ready for the funk, but I don't think they know it
Straight to the depths of hell is were those cowards goin'
Well are you still down nigga, Holla when you see me
And let these devils be sorry, but they finally freed me
I got a cariban of niggas, every time we ride (every time we ride)
Hitting mutha-fuckas up when we pass by (when we pass by)
Until I die Live the life of a  Boss playa, cuz even when I'm high
Fuck with me and get crossed later, the futures in my eyez
Cuz all I want is cash and thangs,
a five double 0 Benz and flaunting flashy rings  Uhh
Bitches pursue me like a dream,
been know to disappear before your eyez, just like a dope fiend, it seems
My main thang was to be major paid
The game sharper than a mutha-fuckin razor blade
Say money bring bitches, bitches bring lies
One niggas getting jealous, and muthafuckas died
Depend on me like the first and fifteenth
They my homies for a second, but these punks won't get me
We got four niggas, and low riders, and ski masks
screaming Thug Life every time they pass
All Eyez on Me

Chorus -- Tupac

Live my life as a Thug nigga
Until the day I die
Live my life as a Boss playa (All eyez on me)
cuz we be getting high
All Eyez on me
Live my life as a Thug nigga
Until the day I die
Live my life as a Boss playa (All eyez on me)
cuz we be getting high

(Syke talking)

Heeyyy, to my nigga Pac


So much trouble in the world, nigga
can't nobody feel your pain
The world changing everyday
times moving faaast
My girl said I need to raise up, how long will she last?
I'm caught between my women, and my pistol, and my chips
Triple beam, got some smokers on, whistle as we dip
I'm lost in the land, with no plan, living life flawless
Crime Boss, contraband, let me toss this
Needy hookers got a lot of nerve, let my bucket swerve
I'm taking off on the curb
The nervousness neglect make me pack a tek
Devoted to serving this, Moet and paaayyy checks
Like a kite sailin' nigga I'm forever Ballin'
It ain't right, pair this ice triggas and fleas crawlin'
Sucka duck and get busted, no emotion
nine and four shit is handling my business nigga keep on coastin'
where yah goin' I been there came back as lonely homie
steady flaunting against the grain nigga still don't know me
It's about the money, and the rap shit, this crap shit
It ain't funny niggas don't even know how to act shit
what can I do, what can I say, is there another way ?
Blunts and Gin twenty-four parlay
My little homie G, can't you see, I'm busta free
niggas can't stand me
All Eyez on Me

Chorus -- Tupac

Live my life as a Thug nigga
Until the day I die
Live my life as a Boss playa (All eyez on me)
cuz we be getting high
All Eyez on me
Live my life as a Thug nigga
Until the day I die
Live my life as a Boss playa (All eyez on me)
cuz we be getting high


The feds is watchin', niggas plottin' to get me
will I survive, will I die, come on lets picture the possibilities
Giving me charges, lawyers making a grip
I told the judge I was raised wrong and thats why I blaze shit
Was hyper as a kid, alone, as a teenager, on the mobile
calling big shots on the scene major
Packing hundreds in my drawers, Fuck the law
Bitches I fuck with a passion, livin' rough and raw
Catchin' cases at a fast rate, balllin' in the fast lane
Hustle 'til the morning, never stopped until the cash came
I live my life as a Thug nigga
untill the day I die
Live my life as a Boss playa
cuz we be getting high
These niggas got me tossin' shit
I put the top down now its time to floss my shit
Keep your head up nigga, make these muthafuckas suffer
Up in the Benz burning rubber
The money is mandatory, the hoes is fully strapped
Cuz the criminal lifestyle equipped with the bulletproof vest
Make sure your eyes is on the Meal ticket
Get your money muthafucka Lets get rich and we'll kick it
All eyez on Me

Chorus -- Tupac

Live my life as a Thug nigga
Until the day I die
Live my life as a Boss playa (All eyez on me)
cuz we be getting high
All Eyez on me
Live my life as a Thug nigga
Until the day I die
Live my life as a Boss playa (All eyez on me)
cuz we be getting high

All eyez on me

(Tupac talking)

Pay attention my niggas

and its gonna be like "bing"

Live my life as a Thug nigga
Until the day I die
Live my life as a Boss playa (Bitches)

Every mutha fuckin' way
I got a bustas, hoes, and police watching a nigga
You know

Live my life as a Thug nigga
Until the day I die
Live my life as a Boss playa (All eyez on me)
All Eyez on me

Its like, what they think I'm walking around with some keys in my pocket
or something

All Eyez on me

They think I'm going back to jail

Live my life as a Thug nigga
Until the day I die
Live my life as a Boss playa (I know y'all watching)
(I know y'all got me in the scopes)
Live my life as a Thug nigga
Until the day I die
Live my life as a Boss playa (I know y'all know this is Thug Life Baabbby)
We be getting high
(Y'all got me under surveillance)

All eyez on Me

But I'm known

Nothing To Lose

IVerse 1

The only way to change me is maybe blow my brains out
stuck in the middle of the game to get the pain out
Pray to my God everyday but he don't listen
the poverty bothers me but mama's working wonders in the kitchen
Listen I can hear her crying in the bedroom
praying for money we never think would she be dead soon
Am I wrong for wishing I was somewhere else
at 13 can't feed myself
Can I blame daddy 'cause he left me
wish he would've helped me
too much like him 'til my mama don't love me
On my own at a early age gettin' paid
and I'm strapped so I'll never be afraid
Where did I go astray I'm hanging in the back streets
running with G's and dope fiends will they jack me?
Can't turn back my eyes on the prize
I got nothing to lose
everybody gotta die
say good-bye to the bad guy
that one you fucked when you passed by
Buck buck (gunshots) from a Glock
tempured glass fly
Do or Die walk a mile in my shoes
and you'd be crazy too
with nothing to lose


I got nothing to lose
(that's why I got gang related)
got nothing to lose 5x
nothing to lose

Verse 2

I thank the Lord for my many blessings
though I'm stressin' keep a vest for protection
from the barrel of the Smith & Wesson
and all my niggas in the pen'
here we go again
Ain't nothing seperating us from a mack 10
Born in the ghetto as a hustla older
straight soldier bucking at them bustas
No matter how you try niggas never die
We just retaliate with hate then we multiply
see me striking down the block hittin' co'ners
Mobbin' like a muthafucka livin' like I wanna
Ain't no stoppin' at the red lights I'm sideways
Thug Life muthafucka criiime pays
Let the cops put they lights on
chase me nigga
zig-zaggin' through the freeway
race me nigga
In a high speed chase with the law
the realest muthafucka that you ever saw
I'm livin' raw 'til they bury me don't worry me
I'm high livin' like I ain't afraid to die
And you could walk a mile in my shoes
and you'd be crazy too


Verse 3

Ain't no escape from a deadly fate
and everyday there's a million black bodies put away
I'm startin' to lose hope
it seems everybody's on dope
Mama told me to leave 'cause she was broke
Sometimes I choke on the indo
peepin' out the window alone on my own
I'm a criminal
Got no love from the household I'm out cold
in the streets give me muthafucking peace
I got nothing to lose
and something to prove
What do I do live Thug Life nigga stay true
I wonder when they kill me
is there a Heaven for a real G
Lord forgive me if you feel me
'Cause all my life I was dirt broke
with no hope li'l skinny muthafucka wantin' dough
I hated cutting suckers with my razor blade
but everyday it's a struggle to get major paid
Anyway it's so hard on a nigga in this city
no pity and ain't no love for the scrubs that be buyin' time
If you could walk a mile in my shoes you'd be crazy too
with nothing to lose


It was a what type nigga be a Thug Life nigga
We be the craziest...Muthafucka!
You know!
It was a what type nigga be a Thug Life nigga
We be the craziest!

[To Top]


Come on come on
I see no changes wake up in the morning and I ask myself
is life worth living should I blast myself?
I'm tired of bein' poor & even worse I'm black
my stomach hurts so I'm lookin' for a purse to snatch
Cops give a damn about a negro
pull the trigger kill a nigga he's a hero
Give the crack to the kids who the hell cares
one less hungry mouth on the welfare
First ship 'em dope & let 'em deal the brothers
give 'em guns step back watch 'em kill each other
It's time to fight back that's what Huey said
2 shots in the dark now Huey's dead
I got love for my brother but we can never go nowhere
unless we share with each other
We gotta start makin' changes
learn to see me as a brother instead of 2 distant strangers
and that's how it's supposed to be
How can the Devil take a brother if he's close to me?
I'd love to go back to when we played as kids
but things changed, and that's the way it is

Bridge w/ changing ad libs
Come on come on
That's just the way it is
Things'll never be the same
That's just the way it is
aww yeah

I see no changes all I see is racist faces
misplaced hate makes disgrace to races
We under I wonder what it takes to make this
one better place, let's erase the wasted
Take the evil out the people they'll be acting right
'cause both black and white is smokin' crack tonight
and only time we chill is when we kill each other
it takes skill to be real, time to heal each other
And although it seems heaven sent
We ain't ready, to see a black President, uhh
It ain't a secret don't conceal the fact
the penitentiary's packed, and it's filled with blacks
But some things will never change
try to show another way but you stayin' in the dope game
Now tell me what's a mother to do
bein' real don't appeal to the brother in you
You gotta operate the easy way
"I made a G today" But you made it in a sleazy way
sellin' crack to the kids. "I gotta get paid,"
Well hey, well that's the way it is


We gotta make a change...
It's time for us as a people to start makin' some changes.
Let's change the way we eat, let's change the way we live
and let's change the way we treat each other.
You see the old way wasn't working so it's on us to do
what we gotta do, to survive.

And still I see no changes can't a brother get a little peace
It's war on the streets & the war in the Middle East
Instead of war on poverty they got a war on drugs
so the police can bother me
And I ain't never did a crime I ain't have to do
But now I'm back with the facts givin' it back to you
Don't let 'em jack you up, back you up,
crack you up and pimp smack you up
You gotta learn to hold ya own
they get jealous when they see ya with ya mobile phone
But tell the cops they can't touch this
I don't trust this when they try to rush I bust this
That's the sound of my tool you say it ain't cool
my mama didn't raise no fool
And as long as I stay black I gotta stay strapped
& I never get to lay back
'Cause I always got to worry 'bout the pay backs
some buck that I roughed up way back
comin' back after all these years
rat-a-tat-tat-tat-tat that's the way it is uhh

Bridge 'til fade

You Don't Know Me

Psst, Ay yo, Are you afraid to die?
or do you wanna live forever?
Tell me
What's Wrong?

They wanna bury me
I'm worried
I'm losing my mind
Look down the barrel of my nine
And my vision is blurry
Falling to pieces, am I guilty?
I pray to the lord, but he ignores me
Unfortunately, because I'm guilty
Show me a miracle, I'm hopeless
I'm choking on Marijuana smoke
With every toke is 
Like I'm losing focus
Falling asleep while I'm in service
When will I die?
Forever, paranoid nervous
Because I'm high
don't mention funerals, I'm stressing, And going nutty, 
And remincing about the niggas that murdered my buddy
I wonder when will I be happy
Ain't nothing funny
Flashbacks of busting caps
Anything for money
Where am I going, I've discovered
Can't understand
Why My next door nieghbor is having carloads of undercovers
What a suprise in the mailbox
Hope she get it
Happy Birthday bitch, you know you shouldn't of did it
Everybodies dying, am I next
Will they be G's and look at me
Before they bust
Or will they kill me while I'm sleeping
Two to the head
While I'm in bed, leaking 
blood on my satin sheets
Is there a heaven for a baller?
Gettin' susipicious of this bitch
The line is busy everytime I call her
Now she's telling me to visit
Who else is home?
I check the house before I bone
So we alone
After I nut
I hit the highway, see ya later
To all the playas, watched her fly way
A nigga played her
Bitch is telling all her homies
That I can fuck her like no other
And now other bitches wanna bone me
I'm under pressure, getting drunk
Somebody help me
I drank a fifth of hennessey
I don't think its healthy
I see my enemies they creeping
Don't make me blast
I watch the 5-0 roll, the mutha-fuckas pass
Nod me like they know me
Smiling as they laugh
I put up my middle finger, then I dash
Niggas don't like me cuz I'm thugging
And everyday, I'm a hustler
Looking to get paid 

They wanna bury me, I'm worried
No need to lie
I pray to god
I won't scream when Its time to fry
No where to rest
I'm losing homies
Ain't that a bitch
When I was rich I had clout
Now a niggas lonely
I put the pistol to my head 
and say a pray
I see visions of me dead
Lord are you there
They tell me I'm lost, cuz I'm lonely
I thought I had friends 
But in the end
A nigga dies lonely
No where to run
I'm in terror
And no one cares
A close casket at my funeral
But no one is there
Is there a future for a killer
I change my ways
But still that don't promise me the next day
So I stay thugging with a passion
Forever Blasting
I'm busting on you mutha-fuckas when I mash
They wonder if I'm hell bound
Well hell can't be worse than this
Cuz I'm in hell now
Don't make me hurt you 
I don't want to, But I will
I've seen mutha-fuckas killed over blown deals
Never will I die, I'll be back
Re-incarnated as a mutha-fucking Mac
Eleven, cuz in heaven
There's no shortage on G's
I'm telling you now
You mutha-fuckas don't know me...

When I Get Free

Guess who's back, and ready to knock off
A cop or two
Cuz me and the crew can still 
Get our rocks off
Pentintiary, don't stop a niggac
Cuz he in Jail
Hell, i'm my money on the streets
From here in the cell
I'm living prop
cops is having fits
Just made a profit
You punks ain't stoping shit
I still remember what my momma told me
Find the cop that killed who killed brother 
Send him to hell looking Holy 
Cause a real nigga loved to brawl 
Whats raw, a nigga thats above the law. 
they think they safe cause im locked up. 
Keep pressing your luck and get fucked
Think a nigga don't know whats up
Cuz he locked up
but in the meantime
Get swole, clean time
Concentrate on getting Green time
And as the years go by
They forgot about the small time soldier from the block
To kill a crook
They through the book 
Don't worry be nappy, don't even look happy
Put me in the hole, gave me cold cuts
Did push ups till I swole up
They offered me a ferload
But what they don't know
Is as soon as i get free i'm killing 5-0 
they asked me if i changed much. 
yea even though im still the same nut. 
started askin me questions about my brother
makin remarks about my mother. 
wait a minute, hold up 
Making jokes about my folks
Will get yours blown up
He sent back to the whole
For what I told him
Guess he didn't believe me
So I showed him
He went home to find a tragedy
Nigga, thats what you get for badgering me
And anybody else trying to sweat me
i'm already in Jail so you punks can't get me
You better pray you never see me
makin remarks about my family will get your ass shot up. 
niggas outside still sweat me. 
but im already in jail so you punks cant get me. 
you better hope they never see me 
Cause If they let me free 
Prepare for trouble on the streets. 
when I get free 
when I get free
