AnalysisEdit

The song is 'The Return' by Blu, a song from his fifth studio album Good To Be Home. The video was edited by Meat to include the signature flickering effect used in many of Meat's other videos. The song used in the video is the album version of the song, and not the single version.

It is believed that Meat is either the director of the music video, or Blu, and is promoting his music, but this cannot be confirmed.

LyricsEdit

Yeah, nigga smokes, nigga
(But I finally realise I need her by my side)
West side, the best side
East side, the beast side
(It's gonna be the happiest moment of my life)
L.A., Compton, Watts, Carson, No cripping, no loving
(I can hardly wait to see her when the morning comes)
We banging on these niggas in the first thing in this music
Yeah come on, west town

Ayo I never banged, and through it all, never changed my name
They used to call me Young Blu, before the fame
Like my cousin Smurf, heard about a OG who used to run the turf
Then he got murked
Putting in work with the Blacks when the Browns was beefing
I got my grief in after school with the chicks grieving
Like "Blu, thank god that wasn't you", ayo
One week later, they got my homeboy too, ayo
Dang, my cousin used to tell me, "Boy watch for them colors.
Other than that, you be the illest mothafucker"
So I pushed to the streets, I pushed to the beach
End up pushing more raps than I ever pushed trees
I had beats from the best
Just to make it known, I was a beast from the West
Trying to get put on with the Snoops and the Games
The Cubes and the Pacs
Next thing you know they banging Blu on the block
My nigga, bang, bang!

When the times get hard in the streets, niggas bang
When them right bars sit up on the beat, niggas bang
When niggas sling cocaine all day to make change
Niggas bang, niggas bang, niggas bang-bang
Tryna tell ahk, "Watch where you walk", niggas bang
When that spark set fire to that heart, niggas bang
From the rollers to the lames, ain't a damn thing change
My niggas bang, niggas bang, bang-bang

Now back up on the block, rap shit locked
Pocket full of money, no crack in my socks
Shouts to the homies in jail with no bail
And props to the homies that blow but don't sell
They be like "Oh well, more room for the real"
Popped a fake in the face for acting like I can't tell
Yeah it feels all good in the hood, I know it ain't
Should be smelling all good, but, I know it stank

Tell the homie hold the shank while I blow that dank
Roll the streets with that cannon like we rolling tanks
Uh, gold plates ho, I know they gonna hate
Might as well get the gold plaques, and the platinum chains
See me when you see me, 'til then, kiss the genie
Spell G, me, you could never be me, believe me
Put the CD on smoke, fuck P's and the hoes
And them niggas talking about they shit bang when it don't
My nigga, bang, bang

When the sun is here you realize you go fly and trying to see her
Screaming try as you lose your voice just trying to be her
No stranger to the game, but you can't seem to believe her
You'll see her, when the morning comes

When the times get hard in the streets, niggas bang
When them right bars sit up on the beat, niggas bang
When niggas sling cocaine all day to make change
Niggas bang, niggas bang, niggas bang-bang
Trying to tell ahk, "Watch where you walk", niggas bang
When that spark set fire to that heart, niggas bang
From the rollers to the lames, ain't a damn thing change
My niggas bang, niggas bang, bang-bang

Ayo, next thing you know, I'm in the county
With a whole bunch of real OG's surrounding me
What you do when your name's Blu
And you run into a Crip, a Cholo, a Piru?
And everybody wanna know on the coast, what set you claim
All my life I had that name -
