Meek Mill- Heaven and Hell


Some niggas go to college, some niggas go to jail
Some make it into heaven, some make it into hell
Nobody want to lose, nobody want to fail
Nobody want to die, nobody want to kill
The things we do just to make it through
But nobody want to lose, nobody want to fail
Nobody want to die, we’re just tryna live our life

[Verse 1: Meek Mill]
Look, I got homies in the ground, skeleton and bones
And niggas doing life, they ain’t ever coming home
They said I wouldn’t make it or never see the throne
And my baby mama hate me cause she said I did her wrong
Cause I left to chase my dream, get it any means
I said that I’ll be back, she wasn’t listening to me
That back and forth arguing was getting in between
I said fuck them other niggas, I go get it with my team
If we all grind, we all shine, fuck a part time
I used to play the block early morning and dark time
Now it’s G5 flights, fuck a depart time
It was hard times, nigga now it’s our time
Just take a look at my life, rapping brought me back to life
Cause I was in them streets, my heart was cold as a pack of ice
Every night we strapping like we was in Iraq to fight
Cause niggas getting murdered for a block that do a stack a night
Woah, I got to make it home to my son
On them papers with a firm hold on his gun
Before I snitch they gotta burn a hole in my tongue
Give me a hundred years in a hole on the sun
In boiling water, in the world of no order
In the hood ain’t no loyalty, ain’t no world for your daughter
Ain’t no life for your brother, on the life of my mother
I’mma get the fam right, nigga you damn right


I choose my favorite songs depending on whats going on in life such as personal experiences.  In this new era Hip Hop Meek Mill is one of favorite rappers, mainly because I can relate to the things he raps about.  I grew up in Red Hook section of Brooklyn, NY in one of the toughest neighborhoods. I can relate to the lyrics because I chose to attend college.  I wanted something better for myself, but the majority of my friends I grew up with went to jail. Some of us make good decisions and some of us bad ones. Sometimes we do things because we feel we have no choice but to. This first line of the verse “Look, I got homies in the ground, skeleton and bones/And niggas doing life, they ain’t ever coming home” hit me hard because I lost a lot of friends to the gun or penitentiary. I use to witness first hand my friends not coming outside unless they had gun or being out all night in the streets trying to make money. I always say to myself that the world we live in is hell that’s why all these bad things be happening.
