      Tupac Shakur - 16 On Death Row Música y Letra

      Death Row, that's where mothafuckas is endin' up
      
      Dear mama, I'm caught up in this sickness
      I robbed my adversaries but slipped and left a witness
      Wonder if they'll catch me, or will this nigga snitch?
      Should I shoot his bitch or make the nigga rich
      Don't wanna commit murder, but damn, they got me trapped
      Hawkin' while I'm walkin' and talkin' behind my back
      I'm kind of schizophrenic, I'm in this shit to win it
      'Cause life's a Wheel of Fortune, here's my chance to spin it
      Got no time for cops, who trip and try to catch me
      Too fuckin' trigger-happy to let them suckers snatch me
      Niggas gettin' jealous, tryin' to find my stash
      Whip out the 9, now [?] pump your ass
      Peter picked a pepper, but I can pick a punk
      Snatched him like a bitch and threw him in the trunk
      The punk thought I was bluffin', but swear I'm nothin' nice
      Before I take your life, first wrestle with these mites
      I listened to his screams, until he went insane
      I guess the little mites had finally found his brain
      New Rovers pull me over, I'm sentenced to the pen
      Remember that little bird? He snitched and told a friend
      It's trouble on my mind, I'm with the old-timers
      And fuck five-0! Blaow, blaow! Turn 'em into forty-niners
      
      Bye bye, I was never meant to live
      Can't be positive when the ghetto's where you live
      Bye bye, I was never meant to be
      Livin' like a thief, runnin' through the streets
      Bye bye, and I got no place to go
      Where they find me; 16 on Death Row
      
      Dear mama, these cops don't understand me
      I turned to a life of crime, 'cause I came from a broken family
      My uncle used to touch me, I never told you that
      Scared what you might do, I couldn't hold you back
      I kept it deep inside, I done let it fuel my anger
      I'm down for all my homies, no mercy for a stranger
      The brother in my cell is 16 as well
      It's hard to adapt when you're black
      And you're trapped in a living hell
      I shouldn't have let him catch me
      Instead of livin' sad in jail I could've died free and happy
      And my cellmate's raped on the norm
      And passed around the dorm
      You can hear his asshole gettin' torn
      They made me an animal, can't sleep
      Instead of countin' sheep, niggas countin' cannibals
      And that's how it is in the pen
      Turn old and cold, and your soul is your best friend
      My mama, pray for me; tell the Lord to make way for me
      Prepare any day for me (Why?)
      'Cause when they come for me they find a struggler
      To the death I take the breath from your jugular
      The trick is to never lose hope
      I found my buddy hangin' dead from a rope; 16 on Death Row
      
      Bye bye, I was never meant to live
      Can't be positive when the ghetto's where you live
      Bye bye, I was never meant to be
      Livin' like a thief, runnin' through the streets
      Bye bye, and I got no place to go
      Where they find me; 16 on Death Row
      
      Dear mama, they sentenced me to death
      Today's my final day, I'm countin' every breath
      I'm bitter 'cause I'm dying, so much I haven't seen
      I know you never dreamed your baby would be dead at 16
      I got beef with a sick society
      That doesn't give a shit
      And they too quick to say goodbye to me
      They tell me the preacher's there for me
      He's a crook with a book
      That mothafucka never cared for me
      He's only here to be sure I don't drop a dime to God
      About the crimes he's committin' on the poor
      And how can these people judge me?
      They ain't my peers, and in all these years
      They ain't never love me
      I never got to be a man, must be part of some big plan
      To keep a nigga in the state pen
      And to my homies out buryin' mothafuckas
      Steer clear of these Aryan mothafuckas
      'Cause once they got you locked up
      They got you trapped, you're better off gettin' shot up
      I'm convinced self-defense is the way
      Please, stay strapped, pack a gat every day
      I wish I would've known while I was out there
      Now I'm straight headin' for the chair
      
      Bye bye, I was never meant to live
      Can't be positive when the ghetto's where you live
      Bye bye, I was never meant to be
      Livin' like a thief, runnin' through the streets
      Bye bye, and I got no place to go
      Where they find me; 16 on Death Row
      
      16 on Death Row, Death Row
      Death Row, Death Row
      16 on Death Row, Death Row, Death Row
      It's to all my partners
      In the penitentiaries; 16 on Death Row
