Lyrics:Tales From The Crack Side
Tales From The Crack Side
Tales From The Crack Side

I woke up in the morning on a regular day
I knew my man named R would be
around my way
I brushed my hair my teeth suddenly I washed my face
Then he came
over my house with the drug base
He kept saying if I take one hit of a pipe
I write
records to rhyme before the rest of the night
I said "R I don't do drugs, or drugs are
And ain't that base drug like a drug, CRACK
He said no Solo, see base is the
Girls puff of base, and everybody does it
He left off quick and left me the
base and the pipe
And I thought I write a record a rhyme, before I reach night
said if that's true, but any case
I couldn't wait to write my record after I smoke the base

He left the crib, I heard the telephone
It was my mom telling to watch my sister
'till she gets home
I hung up the phone, with no time to waste
I put my sister in
the kitchen so I could smoke the base
It had a funny taste but it didn't taste bad I felt
That's when I got my pen and pad
I wrote a rhyme it was funky
I broke in
a race
'Cause the rhy that I wrote, tried to run off my page
I said, "Stop rhyme"

Then I grabbbed the rhyme and cut the rhyme
That I've seen running in my sight

I got a mind was happy when I thought the rhyme was dead
Some leaf swong and caught
me square on the head
I fell on my floor and
The rhyme grabbed the knife
cut my little sister
I thought it took her life
She fell on the floor, blood covered
the rug
The rhyme was left and to my surprise I knew something was bugged
I got on
the phone to call the cops, "what should I do?"
You'd did the same thing if you was in my
As I started talking I seen the rhyme run by
And hit me with a can of ravioli
in my eye
I fell on the floor look and when my vision cleared
I looked around the
house and see the rhyme disappeared
I started to cry I said, "Oh, what would my mom say?"

That's when I heard a cop pulled up into the driveway
She came in the house she took
a look at the place
See my sister still bleeding the knife and the base
She said,
"You cut your sister while you were smoking that shit"
I said, "Mom, I didn't cut 'er, the
rhyme did it"
I knew this was the truth, mom thought it was a lie
Some of y'll might
even think it's just a Tale From The Crack Side

A Tale From The Crack Side
Tale From The Crack Side

Mom was crying, she ran in shocked
Got on the
phone, and then she started crying to the cops
So I ran out the door, and I looked for

The rhyme that cut my sister, who bled on my floor
I got in the yard, went out ran
out in the street
I had to duck behind some trees 'cause I seen the police
When they
ran in my house and shut up the block
I see my girl far coming to my house, and my jaw
I said, "Baby stop," but yo she kept on walking
I knew pretty soon, the cops
would be hawking
I never knew the trouble I was really headed for
'Till the rhyme
appeared again dressed in Santa Claus
He said, "Ho Ho Ho baby you look great"
told me dead on my face my girl was gonna get raped
Me watching this whole thing it was
blowing my mind
'Cause my girl was getting raped by this musical rhyme
He was
sliding in fast my girl cried for help
I grabbed a stick, you know and Solo went for self

I hit the rhyme in the head and seen him drop
But hen the rhyme disappeared and all I
seen was cops
They were coming for me fast I couldn't escape
Besides my girl was on
the ground butt-naked yelling and raped
One cop gave 'er a coat and said "M.s are you
Another cop said that's the kid that cut his sister with the knife
I told
them my name, I tried to explain
They heard the side of my story
They said "Boy you
insane" you raped this girl too
Come on and just admit it
I said, "Man, I didn't
rape 'her, the rhyme did it"
I knew this was the truth but cops thought it was a lie

Some of y'll might even think it just a Tale From The Crack Side

A Tale From The
Crack Side
A Tale From The Crack Side
A Tale From The Crack Side

cops tried to catch me, so I ran like hell
I needed someone to talk to, someone to tell

'Cause all these things were happening they where blowing my mind
See, I knew I
didn't do this, I knew it was a rhyme
But who would believe me in any high state of mind

If they ask me who did it, and I say it was a rhyme
The cops didn't buy it, this is
why I 'm being chased
Then my mom told the cops that I was high, on base
I'm running
I'm sweating
I suddenly knew that I had to get the piece out as fast as I can, so
shoot up this corner, run up another block
Looked over my shoulders, and seen I lost the
cops, then
I ran to his door, bang like a ring or two
He said "Solo, hey man the
cops are looking for you"
I said, "Thanks to you the base and that pipe"
"I wrote a
rhyme high last night and the rhyme came alive"
He started to laugh, said "Yeah right!"

I said, "It raped my girl on the block, and cut my sister with a knife"
He started
laughing, he thought it was a joke
He said, "Yo Solo you had a little too much to smoke"

I grabbed him in the jaw, we started fighting on the floor
Suddenly that's when I
heard someone that was coming from the door
To conclusion, enter my mind, I said

"Could it be the cops, or the rhyme"
But before when I told 'em my man pay me no mind

And when the door opened up, it came the rhyme
With a hammer in his hand he tried to
hit me in the head
I ducked, but the hammer hit P instead
I started braeking then, I
said this must be a nightmare
He was screaming on the floor and there was blood everywhere

I got on the phone, called the cops
She went into shock
And when I hung up
the phone, cops was on the block
I stuck my head out the door, said, "Help me the rhyme is
in here"
But then he dropped the hammer, again he disappeared
The cops kept asking
me how did he get hit
I kept trying to tell the cops "Yo, the rhyme did it"
didnt' buy it, they said "Boy you're bug"
"You can save that rhyme story, for the lawyer or
the judge"
I get there the D.A. and judge still wouldn't listen
They gave me fifteen
to twenty-five years in prision
They take me somewhere, far state
For attempted
murder, assault too and rape
My family won't talk to me, my friends wont' see me
girl now hates me, and she don't wanna marry me
'Cause when this all dawned on me
wasn't a rhyme it was just base technique
So I tell kids and adults in this place

This could happen to y'll if y'll smoke crack or base
So do yourself a favor stay away from
Or you'll be in jail like I was yelling the rhyme did it
No one will believe
you, they'll think you're telling a lie
And your life will become another, Tale From The
Crack Side

Tale From The Crack Side
Tale From The Crack Side
From The Crack Side
