2pac - Running (dying To Live) Lyrics

[Interviewer]

Between you and Biggie, it was like,

Who's gon', who's gon'..

Who rules the nigga kingdom and shit, basically

You know what I'm sayin'...

I was like, this is like a fucking election!

It is an election and shit,

You know what I'm saying?



[2pac]

It is that, It is that!

Me and Biggie's situation is smarter than that,

Me and Biggie's situation is like...



[Ambulance radio]

Central, we got a black male shot...



[Singing]

You know I wonder if they'll laugh when I am dead...



[News reporter]

Tupac Shakur got shot 7 times in the chest...



[2pac]

While i'm in jail, strangers is telling me:

"You don't know?

Biggie homeboy shot you!"

And they braggin'!

And thats why what I'm doing...

I don't know what I'm doing,

I'm screaming, i'm screaming...





CHORUS:

Why am I fighting to live

If I'm just living to fight?

Why am I trying to see

When there ain't nothing in sight?

Why am I trying to give

When no one gives me a try?

Why am I dying to live

If I'm just living to die?





[Notorious B.I.G.]

Check it!

I grew up, a fuckin screw-up

Got introduced to the game,

Got a ounce and fuckin blew up

Choppin rocks overnight

The nigga Biggie Smalls

Tryin to turn into the black Frank White

We had to grow dreads

To change our description

Two cops is on the milk box, "Missing"

Show they toes, you know they got stepped on

A fist full of bullets, a chest full of teflon

Run from the police, picture that

Nigga i'm too fat

I fuck around and catch a asthma attack

That's why i bust back, it don't phase me

When he drop, take his glock

And i'm swayze

Celebrate my escape

Sold the glock, bought some weight

Laid back, i got some money to make,

Motherfucker!



I wonder if they'll laugh when I am dead...



Why am I fighting to live

If I'm just living to fight?

Why am I trying to see

When there ain't nothing in sight?

Why am I trying to give

When no one gives me a try?

Why am I dying to live

If I'm just living to die?



[Notorious B.I.G.]

Tupac's still dead, you know what i'm saying...

Just... don't feed into it

If you feed into it, it's going up and escalate

You know what i'm saying...

I know about the truth...

I know what people would believe that was the truth



[2pac]

It's on me...

But still i'm havin memories

Of high speed when the cops crashed,

As i laughed

Pushin the gas when my Glocks blast

We was young and we was dumb but we had heart

In the dark, where we survived through the bad parts

Many dreams is what i had, and plenty wishes,

No hesitation in extermination of these snitches

And these bitches, they still continue to persue me

A couple o' movies,

Now the whole world is tryin to screw me

Even the cops tried to sue me

So what can I do, but stay true,

Sippin 22's of brew

And now the media is trying to test me,

Got the press asking questions, tryin' to stress me

Misery is all I see, thats my mind state

My history with the police

Would shake the crimerate

My main man had two strikes slipped,

Got arrested and flipped,

He screamed "Thug Life!" and emptied the clip,

Got tired of running from the police...



I wonder if they'll laugh when I am dead...



Why am I fighting to live

If I'm just living to fight?

Why am I trying to see

When there ain't nothing in sight?

Why am I trying to give

When no one gives me a try?

Why am I dying to live

If I'm just living to die?



[Notorious B.I.G.]

I was shocked and everything, you know what I'm sayin'

But i wasn't more shocked of him dying,

I was more shocked of him... (*ding*)

Pac is a strong dude yo, i know dudes,

You know what I'm sayin'...

He is real strong,

So when they was like "He got shot!",

I was more like "Again?",

You know what I'm sayin',

He always gettin' shot or shot at,

He gon' pull through this one again,

Make a few records about it,

And it's gonna be over, you know what I'm sayin'?

But when he, when he died, i was like "Whoa!"

You know what I'm sayin', it kinda took me by...

And even though we was going through our drama,

I would never wish death on nobody,

You know what I'm sayin'...

Cause they be comin' back!
