Snoop Dogg - Imagine Lyrics

Featuring: Dr. Dre & D'Angelo

[Snoop Dogg]
Yo Doc what up my n*gga
Snoop Dogg, it is what it is
This record is so motherf*ckin' gangsta man
I think it's time for me and you to just
Tone it down a bit
Come on

[Dr. Dre]
Imagine it never happened
Imagine no rappin'
Imagine n*ggaz trapped
Imagine it havin' action
Imagine how n*ggaz could be actin'
If we never got this sh*t crackin
Imagine life's so hard
You can't imagine it's like livin' in city of god
You feel me
Imagine life on the yard
Or tryin' to get that dollar on some sh*tty ass job
Imagine Biggie with his son
Imagine Pac gettin' called pop by one
Imagine a mother struggling
Dealing with a system that don't give a f*ck about who shot her son
Imagine life where you can't win
When you get out of the ghetto and go right to the pen
When you get out to the pen you go right to the jenz
When you get back to the streets you get right back in
Imagine Russell still struggling
No Def Jam just another n*gga hustlin'
And ain't no rocks on them fellaz
Just rocks on them fellaz
Just tryin' to keep it bubblin'
Imagine n*ggaz just stopped
From the east to the west coast, everybody f*cked up
I can't imagine no less
But it don't take imagination
To know n*ggaz been bless with hip-hop

[Chorus]
Before we go
Can you imagine?
Picture years, with your mom
Can you imagine?
Paint her picture in the sky
Can you imagine?
Call emergency I've been dreamin' all my life, all my life

[Snoop Dogg]
Can you imagine bein' lit up by some hot shells?
Imagine being tossed around and put in jails
Imagine life when you can't get from under
Imagine n*ggaz at ya when you done fo'
Remember how they ask you why you run for and treat you like a b*tch
When they kick you in your d*ck and take your sh*t
They actin' like they hate to see you gone hoe
But just imagine if the rappin' got the gun no, but you already know.
Imagine n*ggaz in the LBC felt just like Snoop Dogg & D-R-E,
And felt just like the n*ggaz in the 2-1-3.
Then imagine us was comin' when you f*ckin' with me.
Imagine you was up on top of this sh*t
Imagine if the b*tches could stay off this dick
I mean imagine we said f*ck this sh*t
Imagine if my n*ggaz got together and tow up this b*tch, yeah
You can't imagine growin' up in jail done
Happy just to be alive' watching all your people run
But you imagine growin' up to sell your 50 million records world wide or f*ckin' off somebody's son
Imagine if these n*ggaz never saw a colour
Would it be peaceful in them streets where n*ggaz kill each other
All the drunk fool get is pissed on balls
He f*ckin' off my n*ggaz, they gon' murder us all, imagine that

[Chorus]
Before we go
Can you imagine?
Picture years, with your mom
Can you imagine?
Paint her picture in the sky
Can you imagine?
Call emergency I've been dreamin' all my life, all my life

Before we go
Can you imagine?
Picture years, with your mom
Can you imagine?
Paint her picture in the sky
Can you imagine?
Call emergency I've been dreamin' all my life, all my life

Imagine, imagine
Can you imagine? Can you imagine?
Can you imagine? Imagine, imagine

In the name of Allah, in the name of God
The benificiant, the merciful
The one God to whom all praises due
Regardless of land labor, of title

No matter what name you call God by
Whenever life seems hard
Everybody know that you must talk to God
