You all have to excuse me on this one...This sudden death in my family just brought back so many memories...I was crying while I was typing this one...It's lyrics--you can call this one rap. But it's for every person that I lost that I loved...RIP

George Battles (Grandaddy)
Cousin Junior
Steve Kelly
Johnnie Jones
Quincy Exantus (Prince)

Everyone else that I know that has went on to the other side. I respect you all too. But this here is love!


Peace to Steve Kelly
and my boy Johnnie Jones
I know you're gone!
I'm gon' miss you
But life goes on

It's a struggle in the streets
And we hustle just to eat
Tote heat big enough
To give the street a good sweep

Homies young and they dying
So you hear the mamas crying
See him laying in the dirt
Not breathing! Ain't trying

Pop's grieving! Shots flying
All this liquor that we buying
Screaming "Thug Life"
Drive by, bust and keep riding

I know who killed my boy
But that coward keep hiding
I'm gon cut him like a sorry player
Wait until I find him

In the mean time picture X
On the block grinding
That's an old photograph
You should picture X shining

You should picture Junior breathing
Picture us not grieving
The graveyard with no stones
No bones even

Even Pac could come back
Take Pun to see Crack
Never see an R.I.P.
Where B.I.G was placed at

Picture every rapper in the church
Where Pastor Mace at
Close the album--homies gone'
And nothing can replace that

I wrote a will a while ago
But you can go erase that
When I die bury me
In a Bentley Maybach

And I'll drive into Heaven
Sitting on some twenty-sevens
Find my grandaddy--
He died just when I turned eleven

And I'll see my boy Prince
Trust me dawg, I've been waiting
Ever since you died that week
Before high school graduation

But I can't be anxious...
Trying to be patient
Got a woman that I love
Can't leave her life vacant

Wishing that we could go back
Reverse the ride
Let's have moment of silence
For the folks that died...

  i can see why everyone says u remind them of pac in a way. it's true, i won't deny that but i couldn't say a particular song that this reminded me of becuz it has a style of it's own. ur style that cannot be imitated. damn good write, and that's not an opinion. that's the truth.

  Straight to the heart. I'm one of very few people who've never lost someone close to them. I can only imagine what that has to be like. This is incredible. Simply and beautifully incredible.

those lines hit me the most, thinkin back to all our lost patriarchs and idols of hip-hop. i'm srry for your lost loves ones, brian. god knows i've had ones that i love die. Melissa, Paw-Pee, Gamee,...the list goes on. the main idea is for us to never let go, tho we may stop cryin and our facesdry, we never let go. very somber piece for you, not that it matters. brilliant.~P.J.

  First let me say I am sorry about your sudden lost of your cousin Jr. its such a shame how young kids see all this volinece in video's and think its cool and only see women as booty shaking whores. The streets are very tough,but only the people who live that life can change it, asking the Gov or police to stop it,will never do any good. its takes good parents and tight families to overcome it.

This is an excellent write and so so so true,bravo

  This was an excrutiatingly heartfelf piece! It was so sad, mixed with a little bit of rage maybe? Too many lives are taken too soon and others you just don't want to let go of. You've hit a lot of hearts with this and did a wonderful job!
I'm so very sorry for your seem to have a lot of strength to carry on- you've shown a lot of it in your writing! Great job!

  Well this is a very mature piece, Brian, I commend you for keeping your obvious emotions in check.

You do well to give us a small insight of the character of those you've lost, to drag the reader into the sorrow, and hope, that you put into this.

Once again, you impress greatly.

Well done, and, I mean this:

be Happy

  ooohhhh X, i really respect this piece...its a nice tribute to people that mean so much to you, that have gone somewhere a whole lot better than this! my condolences for your loss, but you are showing great strength and courage through it...the flow was great and i could even hear the music.

trust that it will get easier...though you wont forget you will shine in their memories...

  I guess the only one's I have lost were my granddad and a brother-in-law. Both are missed. This is an exceptional piece and touches at the heartstrings. Amazingly written.

It has a sense of sadness and longing to be with those that you've lost.. Yet a desire to remain and "live".. for them, and those who are still here.

The last stanza was an excellent way to close this out. A moment of silence...

  Good write brian. When a remembrance piece is written it takes everybody back to the time they lost someone. And thats you did. Kinda like that old school song by p, i miss my homies, you truly trying to remember in the best way and that i gotta applaude you for. Im sorry for your loss but keep your head up

  You touched on emotions that I've tried to forget truly have...This was a very somber and hearfelt requiem for all that was.

Death funny...though it stops a life it brings together so many more...think of how close you are at the funeral services with all the other who are grieving...think back to a burial of a long time homie and remember the embrace you gave to that one person you hadn't seen in years and swore you didnt care about...but because of a mutual death you cling to that person for comfort, for i'm sorry i dont mean to ramble on your piece but you've just made a retired soldier think...

  Wow this is a masterpiece..It got me crying immensely ...I mean you got me contemplating about the struggle of our black youth...caught up in these social injustices..However it captures the beauty of our talented and gifted brothers, while some have given up the fight to realise their potential!This is an inspirational piece...Nobantu
