2Pac – Thugz Mansion (Remixes Vol. 2 Album)


Remember this face, save me a place, in thug’s mansion
Picture a place that they exist, together
Nobody cares, seen the politicians ban us
Ain’t no place I’d rather be
At thug mansion
A spot where we belong, that’s just for us
Tell the homies I’m in heaven and they ain’t got hoods
Ain’t no place I’d rather be
Ain’t no place I’d rather be
Only place that’s right for me
The deadly places slingin’ drugs, in thug’s mansion
Not knowin’ it’s hard to carry on when no one loves you
They’d rather see us locked in chains, please explain
When Miles Davis cuttin’ lose with the band
Sky high, iced out paradise, in the sky
Why they can’t stand us, is there a way for me to change?
Sky high, iced out paradise, in the sky
And in my mind’s eye I see this place, the players go in fast
No man alive has ever witnessed struggles I survived
Where we can drink liquor store and no one bickers over trick shit
That’s why we go to thug mansion
Chil’ren, dead homies and family
So right before I sleep, dear God, what I’m askin’
Seen a show with Marvin Gaye last night,
Ain’t no place I’d rather be
Picture me inside the misery of poverty
That passed on, they in heaven, found peace at last
Tired of gettin’ chased by the police and arrested
Chil’ren, dead homies and family
Little LaTasha sho’ grown tell the lady in the liquor that she’s forgiven, so come home
Then some lady named Billie Holiday sang sittin’ there kickin’ it with Malcolm, ’til the day came

I shed tattooed tears and couldn’t sleep good
I need a place to rest my head
For multiple years, witness peers catch gunshots
I cry at times I once contemplated suicide,
So much pressure in this life of mine,
I’ll be right behind ya, show me and I’ll go
Prayin’ hard for better days, promise to hold on
Is there a spot for us to roll, if you find it

Only place that’s right for me
Ain’t no place I’d rather be

Will I survive all the fights and the darkness?
Me and my dawgs ain’t have a choice but to roll on

Just think of all the people that you knew in the past
Ain’t no heaven for a thug nigga

Chil’ren, dead homies and family
Sky high, iced out paradise, in the sky
How can I be peaceful? I’m comin’ from the bottom
Chromed out mansion in paradise, in the sky
it had me shook drippin’ peppermint Schnapps, with Jackie Wilson, and Sam Cooke
We found a family spot to kick it
With the little bit of homeboys that remains, ’cause all the rest dead
Chromed out mansion in paradise, in the sky
Chromed out mansion in paradise, in the sky
niggas ain’t gotta get all dressed up and be Hollywood
Ain’t no place I’d rather be
Watch my daddy scream peace while the other man shot him
There has to be a place better than this, in heaven
Only place that’s right for me
niggas need a spot where we can kick it
Dear momma don’t cry, your baby boy’s doin’ good
Sky high, iced out paradise, in the sky
Trouble sparks, they tell me home is where the heart is, dear departed
We still visualize places, that we can roll in peace
Ain’t no place I’d rather be
Chromed out mansion in paradise, in the sky
Chil’ren, dead homies and family
Maybe in time you’ll understand only God can save us

Shit, tired of gettin’ shot at
Only place that’s right for me
A spot where we can smoke in peace, and even though we G’s
Ain’t no place I’d rather be
I need a house that’s full of love when I need to escape
No one knows my struggle, they only see the trouble
and woulda’ tried but when I held that 9, all I could see was my momma’s eyes
That’s the only place where thugs get in free and you gotta be a G
Where do niggas go when we die? Y’knahmean?
Or am I just a victim of things I did to maintain?
A place to spend my quiet nights, time to unwind
I got a spot for us all, so we can ball, at thug’s mansion
