Yo, yeah, yo
Uhh, uhh, yeah, yo
Uhh, uhh, yeah, yo
Uhh, uhh, G. DepA child of the ghetto, nobody explain it to me
Livin' the scripture, the picture they painted for me
Rippin' it, runnin' and gunnin' and aimin' for me
Yo, yeah, uhh, yeahI guess you niggaz told me right and exact
Shak, shak, right in his back
I might just crack while I'm writin this rap
From even, a tire that snap, I'm light in the sack
I tell you how I feel and that's part of the deal
I'm like Seagal with the steel but harder to kill
It's real, big beans up for lettin' me know
Fifteen bet and you blow, better get doughWon't be a second we won't, they lettin' me go
Since pay's wisen your ways, allow me to grow
Aiyyo, swing, yeah, back to the scene
Seven-four-eight-oh, can't recall in between
Whole state pulsate, we can wrinkle the town
Park jams, dark shams niggaz breakin' it down
Niggaz rock the heaters, my clique rocked Adidas
Didn't know the blocks were where the spots would lead us
But heyA child of the ghetto, nobody explain it to me
Livin' the scripture, the picture they painted for me
Knew what it wasn't, it wasn't the game or the greed
Rippin' it, runnin' and gunnin' and aimin' for me
A child of the ghetto, nobody explain it to me
Livin' the scripture, the picture they painted for me
Niggaz is gamin', they ain't who they claimin' to be
Niggaz that know me they told me the game it could be crazyI take you back to the scene of the stunt
Scene of that rhyme and you can think what you want
And if, and if you tell me you can get it from here
Got boom got boom, put shit in the air, yeah
Get us some gear to get us in here
Waited years to get a premier and did it from here
Harlem, citizen where the kid is in gear, guard him
Niggaz in here, who get it in here, we are themTake you back to the 80's around
Polo grounds, uptown, eight-eighty a pound
Niggaz hit the rooftop, y'all was roofin' the rocks
Other niggaz shoe tops, only youth from the block
You dig me, movin' in tops and movin' these rocks
You get it, we movin' them blocks to move in them drops
Skiddin', I guess the niggaz told me right and exactly
When they said stop fightin' and stack it, get the money niggaA child of the ghetto, nobody explain it to me
Livin' the scripture, the picture they painted for me
Knew what it wasn't, it wasn't the game or the greed
Rippin' it, runnin' and gunnin' and aimin' for me
A child of the ghetto, nobody explain it to me
Livin' the scripture, the picture they painted for me
Niggaz is gamin', they ain't who they claimin' to be
Niggaz that know me, they told me the game it could be crazyEighty-one I had fun, eighty-two I was new
Eighty-three I did me, eighty-four I had grew
Eighty-five it got live, eighty-six in the mix
Eighty-seven in the kicks, eighty-eight in the whips
Eighty-nine I had the grind, now I know it was flowNinety-one we got guns, ninety-two it was dough
Ninety-three was the key, ninety-four was sure
Ninety-five took a dive, ninety-six I was poor
Ninety-seven did eleven, now I'm made out the gate
Ninety-nine spit rhymes two-thousand and straight
Shit, I thought I'd give housing a break
Sit back, countin' the cake and lounge in estates but yoA child of the ghetto, nobody explain it to me
Livin' the scripture, the picture they painted for me
Knew what it wasn't, it wasn't the game or the greed
Rippin' it, runnin' and gunnin' and aimin' for me
A child of the ghetto, nobody explain it to me
Livin' the scripture, the picture they painted for me
Niggaz is gamin', they ain't who they claimin' to be
Niggaz that know me, they told me the game it could be crazyA child of the ghetto, nobody explain it to me
Livin' the scripture, the picture they painted for me
Niggaz is gamin', they ain't who they claimin' to be
Niggaz that know me, they told me the game it could be crazy ml

G. Dep is an acronym for Ghetto Dependant (born Trevell Michael Coleman) (born on September 12, 1978 in Harlem, Manhattan, New York City, New York, USA) nicknamed 'The Deputy' joined Bad Boy Entertainment in 1999 after Black Rob recommended him to P. Diddy who listened to his demo and decided to put him on a couple of tracks on Black Rob’s album: ‘Life Story’. Impressed by G. Dep’s unique style P. Diddy immediately signed him to the Bad Boy label and he made a couple of appearances on Puff Daddy’s ‘Forever’ and Biggies ‘Born Again’. His debut album ‘Child of the Ghetto’ introduced G. Dep to the world in which he rapped about his street life in Harlem. The lead single ‘Special Delivery’ produced by Ez Elpee gave him the credibility he deserved. This was successfully remixed for a single off the album ‘We invented the remix’ which again made the charts.

Despite his successful dance floor single ‘Let’s Get It’ (where all three where credited as "Three the Hard Way") which introduced the Harlem Shake, he failed to make huge sales on the label and his album remains one of the most bootlegged albums to date. His contribution the family is shown on ‘The Saga Continues...’ rapping on some of the best tracks on the album including ‘Child of the Ghetto’ which shows his raw street ability and also his successful collaborations with the family. After a brief hiatus in which his future was uncertain G. Dep came back released a mixtape called 'The Deputy: The sheriff is back in town’. He didn't lose his touch and it led to Black Rob bringing him back to Bad Boy Entertainment and he is expected to take part in his group Alumuni.

G. Dep's life before Bad Boy, although not garnering as much notice outside of the NYC hip-hop community, is considered by many to be far superior from a quality of work perspective. His early mixtapes and bootlegs made him an underground hip-hop legend in the mid-to-late 90's. On Gang Starr's fourth album, Hard to Earn, an in-booklet shout-out is given to leading underground MC's, namely the Wu-Tang Clan and G. Dep. Again, Guru and DJ Premier showed their respect for Dep by featuring him on their next two major releases. In 1997 G. Dep appeared under the name G-Depp on DJ Premier's New York Reality Check 101, on track 5, Head Over Wheels. The next year, Dep found himself rapping alongside Guru and Shiggy-Sha on Gang Starr's unsurpased hip-hop masterpiece Moment of Truth; track 17, The Mall. Read more on Last.fm.
