In West Philadelphia I was born and raised
On the playground is where I spent most of my days
Chillin' out, maxin', relaxin' all cool,
And all shootin' some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys who where up to no good
Started makin' trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared,
And said "You're movin' with your auntie and uncle in bell air".
