Got a gun? You get none!

Women. Have. Power.

Lessons in the Lyrics: Forget I was a G (Whitehead Brothers)

This classic from the soundtrack of the movie “Jason’s Lyric” (1994) really speaks to the issue of a man getting out of the gangsta lifestyle for the love of a woman. Self-reflection is key, he asks himself: “What would I do if I was to lose my girl? How would she feel if I was to leave this world?” Words to live by.

Forget I was a G (Whitehead Brothers)

Street life, it’s the only life I know

All the hustlin and the building

Living on my own

No one…I can love no one to trust

Til you came into my life girl

Now I’m giving it all up

For you…

Get down and pray

That you will stay

With a man like me

And forget I was a G.

Threw away my pager, got my number changed again

No more business calls from other Gs try’na hustle up some ends

Moved to a new location where nobody knows my name

I’ll just live my life in love with you cuz I’m finally out the game.

Get down and pray

That you will stay

With a man like me

And forget I was a G.

I used to hustle on the block

Pull out me glock

Lick some shots!

If you didn’t have me money, straight goin in ya tip

Til I met this fly honeydip

Oh shhhhh!

Ask no questions, I’ll tell you no lie

This girl was fly

Put me off that vibe

Oh my!

So I had to stop hustlin

Cuz hustling was the road to the clink.

She made me think:

What would I do if I was to lose my girl?

How would she feel if I was to leave this world?

Now this lady showed me how to bury the old me

I’m living in peace

Cuz I’m no longer an OG.

Get down and pray

That you will stay

With a man like me

And forget I was a G.

I don’t wanna be a G no more…

I don’t wanna be a G no more…
