[kung fu sample]

You have to learn mercy
\
Otherwise, you will learn bad ways

You have been confined here, for one month already
But you still haven't grasped this basic principle
I feel sorry for you, my boy

[Intro]

(Blue Raspberry)

I've been living in this world

Not knowing where I'm going *knowing where I'm going*
This world ain't showing that it's gonna get better, better
*yeah, it's gonna be trouble again*

(Beanie Sigel)

My days getting shorter, my nights getting longer
My cell getting smaller, my son getting taller
I exercise my mind, my body getting stronger
But my blood getting colder, heart getting harder
My chances for appeal, getting slimmer
My skin getting brighter, my hair getting thinner
See, when you stressed out, you could age fast in here
*have mercy*
I done seen weak niggas not last a year,
so before lights out
I write my kids every night,
kiss the stamp on the kite
and say a prayer,
I hope it lands safe in this flights

I pray they sleep safe through the night

Try to teach my son right, give him some jewels

But it's hard to raise my boy from this visiting room

Many cells turned to prisoner's tombs
I just pray I don't die in here, and last night I almost cried a tear *have mercy*

[Chorus]

(Raekwon, *Blue Raspberry*)

To all my gun holders, stand up, get it
Cuz when the killas come around, it's on
Bullets get blown, warn 'em and they re-up fast
Say some back shit, your flagship gone
Can't play the building no more
Can't hang around by the store no more
It's really on, you a dickhead
Now you a dead man with no hand
Now you can't believe you jammed

(Raekwon)


Between my six niggas, sixty years, stay in the crispy airs
Hundreds, blunted, we up top, switching lairs
Money equal power, horror equal real when borrowed
Ratchet barrel under your ears
Mean streets in the middays, they robbers, but life's so hard
Even the cops clutter us to starve us
*have mercy*
The killas is star struck, look at the cars and trucks
Rambo guns, it's hard to get luck
Whether fail or a come up, your number is up
Period, make you bleed Caesarean
Chop through your body, leave you right in the lobby
Hear me, kid? Extra holes right in your derriere

The blitzes, the rushes'll touch something, back in the cells
Two days later, yup, back in them cuffs again
Or leaning on the customers, hustlers, my hood illustrious
Marvelous raps, screw on mufflers
*have mercy*

[Chorus]

(Blue Raspberry)

Ahh, ahh, ahh, ahh
It hurts my heart, to see what's going on
Young men dying now, children going when they're born
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh whoa
Oh no, oh whoa, where is this world going to? I don't know

Classic - again!

Love Beanie's verse and Blue - is absolutely great. I didn't think we'd hear Blue and Wu again - hope we hear much more in future.

yo change the producer from Ice Water Productions to MoSS, cuz he's the actual beatmaker here. just search google for it and you'll see for yourself. the thing is he gave the beat to Rae in 2005-2006 (maybe when they did "Kilo" w. Ghost together) and by the time they was putting out CL2 Rae didn't remember who made the beat and put Ice Water Productions on there. same with "Canal Street" i believe, if you check the first tracklistings that Rae released all songs had production credits next to them except "Have Mercy" and "Canal Street"; "Cold Outside" was credited to ATL (just like in the booklet if you check closely).

this song is really dope either way, Beanie Sigel and Raekwon sounds great rhyming together and the jail stories fits perfectly on this epic LP. i must say the best verse goes to Beanie altho Rae ain't coming with no half-assed shit either. it was amazing to hear Blue Rapsberry's beautiful voice on here as well, i wish she was doing background vocals for one or two more songs though but good that he let her on.

4.5/5
