Gentrification Is Real

Gentrification is real!
White people moving in the hood to live with Meek Mill
City councilmen be with the contractors tryna strike deals
To buy you out of ya home without regard if you can find another place to live
First the block gets re-zoned and they build some fancy cribs that don’t look like the one you own
And then ya taxes hit the lid
Because they know niggas can’t afford it
But by that time it’s too late
You can’t keep up with the payments and you’ve already been extorted
South Philly was a warning
They let developers breeze through so now North Philly is where they’re pointing…

Strawberry Mansion is next and they’re coming for us.
