My Man Rich
[Verse One]

This is a different type of dedication

To a guy that was a different kind of inspiration

Only people that knew him, know what I'm talkin about

And at the end of the story, you will say without a doubt

This wasn't your typical case, of fast livin

Anything he was makin, he was givin

To his moms, pops, his brother and his girl

Cause they, meant, the most to him in the world

Around Suffolk he wasn't known

But in Eastern Long Island, he did have a home

Called L.I., is where he stayed

Where there was no need for D-Con or Raid

He was cool with everybody, he had no enemies

I'm makin this record, cause he's a friend of me

Cause he's a hard workin kid, I've just stated

That's why this record, is dedicated

To my man Rich



Yo yo, this is for you my man

God bless you



[Verse Two]

Let me tell you what happened in the early 80's

When we wasn't thinkin about gettin all the ladies

Me and Rich was thinkin about survival of the fittest

You can ask Keith or Kevin, cause both of them were with us

We'd try to get a job everyplace that it takes

We was even at the factory they call {?}

Everywhere we went they said they'd call us back

Or even said they're not hirin to throw us off track

But Richie Rich said, forget that stuff

Even though, times was rough

We kept searchin searchin lookin and lookin

It seems everywhere we went, the jobs was tooken

Still Rich didn't give up the faith

He found a job that wasn't safe

Even though it was dangerous, it wouldn't switch

That's why this is dedicated to my man Rich



Yo this is to you my man Rich

Cause you know you go way back, you go way back

Word up, God bless you
