Verse 1:
Get that monkey off your back
You must be smoking crack
That purp done made you snap
Now you caught up in the trap
Get that monkey off your back
You must be smoking crack
That purp done made you snap
Now you caught up in the trap
Get that monkey off your back
Eager innocent minds controlled
Drugs crime doctor parolled
Addicted soul ghetto patrolled
Prison bars One year old
Slaves of slaves Dollars on graves
Families broke being dope raised
Young Men in a dazes
Cops going through phazes
Bullets have no names
Criminals on stages
Murderers have fame
It's a dirty game
Black on black crime
Songs get played
Court hearing sentences delayed
Justice has no minimum wage
Babies born inside a cage
Got Baptized ...Now they saved
Poverty stricken hood in a rage
Cold hearted people we're in a stone age

Hook:
Get that monkey off your back
You must be smoking crack
That purp done made you snap
Now you caught up in the trap
Get that monkey off your back
You must be smoking crack
That purp done made you snap
Now you caught up in the trap
Get that monkey off your back

Verse 2:
Politicians same contribution paid
White collars born in caves
Concrete thieves pulling out blades
Crime bosses still being made
Weak minds...Dreams Fade
Bed made...Head Laid
Brain Dead ...Purple Haze
Another block just got sprayed
Underage plea bargains waived
Ten Years to life stuck in a cage
Lost inside a self made grave

Hook:
Get that monkey off your back
You must be smoking crack
That purp done made you snap
Now you caught up in the trap
Get that monkey off your back
You must be smoking crack
That purp done made you snap
Now you caught up in the trap
Get that monkey off your back

Verse 3:
Restless souls warped minds
Dreamed about a dead man's crime
He was too young
He died in his prime
Still tryna make purple wine
Turn the clock back ...Rewind
Lost souls roam through time
Shadows of darkness on their grind
Crooks got caught paid a fine
People scream then they cry
Tears fall...Lonely wives
Father time....Open eyes
Still alive...Old man wise
Street names..Lost five
Spirits walk...Wings fly

Hook:
Get that monkey off your back
You must be smoking crack
That purp done made you snap
Now you caught up in the trap
Get that monkey off your back
You must be smoking crack
That purp done made you snap
Now you caught up in the trap
Get that monkey off your back
You must be smoking crack
Get that monkey off your back
That purp done made you snap
Get that monkey off your back
Now you caught up in the trap
Get that monkey off your back
That purp done made you snap
Get that monkey off your back
