Hook: Guru
Scandalous, money greed and lust
In this trife
life, there ain't nobody you can trust
Plus there's no justice, it's just us
In
fact, watchin' yo back it be must
And each and everyday around the way gats bust
And
jealous so-called friends'll try to set you up
It's called betrayal
Verse 1: Guru

Check the horror scene
The kid was like twelve or thirteen
Never had the
chance like other kids to follow dreams
Watched his father catch two in the dome and to the
spleen
Nothin" but blood everywhere, these streets are mean
They spared his life,
but killed his moms and his sister Jean
Of course over some drug shit
Hi spops was
on some ill-out, spill your guts, on some thug shit
Didn't know his boys was on some shady
ass no love shit
His pops got played out though, with silencers they laid him out yo

Took his stash and all the cash and left 'em, tied up on the couch yo
With tape over his
mouth, so he couldn't cry out
cause his dad was the nigga with clout
Survival of the
fittest so they split his wig no doubt
Despite the stocking caps he noticed the same cat,
who used to give
him doe
and taught him, to use the same gat
Supposed to be
an Uncle,fam and all that
He could tell it was him 'cause he wore the same slacks, he wore
when
he took him to Meadowlands racetrack
Why did he flip and go out like that?

It's called betrayal
Hook
Verse 2: Scarface
A Betrayal
Punk
ass niggas
It's called betrayal
He on a mission to become a ball player
Flip
big Benz's, flossin all gators
Had it all mapped out,6-8,12th grader
Fresh outta
school, he fin' to go lay paper
He had abrother who was hustlin collectin his change

Never let his baby brother stick his neck in the game
Told him all he had to do is just
enjoy the ride
And he ain't have to worry about money cause that's in time
So now
he's pacin as the time moves slowly
Can't wait to face Shaquille in the paint and school
Kobe
Kept his grades and stayed up under naighborhood functions
And then a group of
knuckleheads came through dumpin
So now he's sittin on the sidewalk bleedin
Fell
into a puddle of his own blood and stopped breathin
And everybody in the neighborhood still
grievin
But destiny caught up with his ass and he got even
And all the cryin in the
world ain't goin to bring him back
his brother, sittin at the wake wipin tears from his
mother's eyes
Why'd the game have to go and take the young boys life
Only the wicked
live shife, payin the price
while he's starin at the shell
his brothers soul wants
hell the trigger man made bail
and you, wouldn't pay the boys mail, and sacrificed the
fuckin family
That's betrayal
Betrayal(echoes)
Hook
