I’ll Be Around Lyrics By Rappin 4 Tay Featuring The Spinners

    phone rings
    lady ragtop records may i help you
    fly can i speak to fo
    lady one moment please he’s around
    4tay yo wassup
    fly wassup fo i know you finished that cut for the radio
    4tay as a matter of fact fly i just finished it baby boy no worry about nothin’ i’ll be around

    regardless if i’m chillin’ backstage or on tour
    with my homie young fly even al b sure
    never hesitate to call me after i’m done
    ’cause homie i’m real and always true to my loved ones
    too many wakes and funerals full of tears
    you say there’s something on your mind well hey i’m all ears
    ’cause ain’t nobody thinking about the funk that you’re choosin’ it
    a lot of my homies stuck in the pen for life or losin’ it
    call up your folks you keep thinkin’ about home
    recorder keeps a peep and there’s a block on the phone
    and all of this is enough to make a brother’s nerves bad
    reminds me of a situation that i once had
    spent that spent this endless relentless tremendous women on my jock
    and don’t nobody mind their business
    he say she say throwin’ salt about
    and chooses to talk about you cause there’s nothin’ else to talk about
    talk about the show and the flow and all the clout
    then be real with yourself and talk about and turned it out
    it’s not hard to compete when one who’s name is poppin’
    a scared man can never win that’s why i stay clockin’
    sticky like a cactus and i practice with tight stuff
    and trippin’ on these suckers ’cause i know they ain’t tight enough
    put ’em on a platter like a stage and they get scared
    waitin’ for an from the fo and i’m well prepared
    fools be huffin’ and puffin’ don’t wanna see me about nothin’ i’m down
    and if you ever need me fly i’ll be around

    whenever you call me i’ll be there
    whenever you want me i’ll be there
    whenever you need me i’ll be there
    i’ll be around

    life ain’t based on peaches and cream
    this new generation holds a whole lot of dreams
    future doctors producers and mothers
    the list goes on but now we killin’ our brothers
    and if we killin’ our brothers that means we killin’ our own kind
    these kids are watchin’ now it goes to their mind
    rattatatat cause you got a gat
    then they want a gat you livin’ like that
    but i’m not surprised just look what’s televised
    it shouldn’t take a bullet for a brother to realize
    we runnin’ the hard heads they runnin’ the hot lead
    then visit a death bed i feel that’s enough said
    enough is enough too much crime buildin’
    no i’m not a role model but i’m thinkin’ of children
    that hang out late night ’cause they feel that’s right
    to watch the gunplay or bloody streetfight
    so i’m a be around with a funky rap g
    i know how it is and hopefully you feel me
    ’cause where i come from we rap to tight beats
    and if you don’t hustle that’s a day you don’t eat
    moms ain’t cookin’ she worked the week straight
    if anything she’s the one deserves a hot plate
    the ghetto the ghetto ain’t nothin’ to dream about
    tryin’ to get out now that’s somethin’ to think about
    fools might disagree but i’m a stay sucka free
    and i’m so black and so strong they can’t fade me
    blacks are blacks worst enemy there’s still no remedy
    you got me for a grip still you call yourself kin of me
    jealousy envy i see it in your eyes
    tell me what’s wrong with seeing a black man rise
    i keep it funky it’s pretty hard to miss it now and is it not explicit
    a message for the mind and a moral for statistics
    so i’m doin’ what we call a roll call
    callin’ out the ones who won’t rap to take a downfall
    i spit the street life and then i go underground
    you silly it’s called versatility and i’ll be around


    things are gettin’ crucial you gotta exercise your mind
    or learn about life before you’re left behind
    but how you gonna get it right when you’re not doin’ right
    when you get mad all you want is a gunfight
    ’cause you ain’t havin’ that but understand that
    you pretty hard to talk to holding a gat
    so here’s a new concept for your agenda
    you’ll live to be old if you control your temper
    this tension causes a gang of madness
    now you want funk that results to sadness
    sadness results to a lot of revenge
    and your so called friends really ain’t your friends
    so how do you know who you’re able to trust
    if you think about the past look what happened to us
    i never trust no one i only trust myself
    or i would’ve been a victim like everyone else
    in friendship or hardship whenever you need me
    just give me a call g i won’t deceive thee
    these fools be shakin’ best believe they’re fakin’
    just tryin’ to get a grip of all the money you’re makin’
    this ain’t race a mind is a terrible thing to waste
    i drop the rap and j drops the bass
    to the flow cause ain’t nobody get with fo
    i’m a down young brother comin’ straight outta frisco
    droppin’ a message out of love to your town
    love your brothers and sisters and i’ll be around
