Ay Trusty Trusty, what you want man?
Aww nigga let me get one of them ciggarettes, damn!
Shit, come on bastard, get the phone for a nigga
Use the phone, aww nigga get the phone for me man
What's the number? 323-6545, tell her it's Pac

Chorus: repeat 2X

When I get free, motherfuckers better watch they ass
Soon as I get released, I'ma clock some cash
Did some time locked down, but I'm back on the street
There'll be trouble when they see me

I heard a snicker a laugh, I take a look at the evening news
And see a nigga gettin cuffed by the boys in blue
Is it a, frame up, tryin to keep me out the game, stuck
These motherfuckers tryin to dirty up my name, but
I slip as quick as the wind, it's me again, fuck friends
My foes be on a mission, tryin to do me in
Fuck em I'm out to get out, they all thought
I blow up like gauge, and in a rage blow they balls off
Why are you niggaz tryin to test me trick?
And be the first ones to snitch to arrest me bitch
Maintain with a nigga meal ticket only if you with the real
The nigga will kick it, I'll enforce it with the steel
These are lessons that I learned in jail
Rule one: fuck a busta he can burn in Hell
Now I'm workin with connects that I got in the pen
In no time I'll be clockin again

Chorus

Heyyy, still sittin in my cell as I dwell on my past
Tryin to figure how a nigga turned dreams into cash
Quick call her collect, ain't no respect on the other side
My cellmate's suicidal cause his mother died
And my C.O. is a lady, and I'm thinkin maybe
me and her can hook up a scheme, to be Swayze
Cause she keep on callin me baby, to a young
motherfucker facin eighty that's enough to make me crazy
Now how long will it take, to get a hook
Got her watchin me liftin weights, sneakin looks
I devised a plan, I'm in the trunk while she drives
but man, ain't no disguise I'ma die as a man
If we make it then I'm takin it to Hell
all them niggaz that was frontin while I sat up in a cell
Locked in jail, I couldn't touch her so I planned, in misery
The nigga you don't wanna see

Chorus 3X

When I get free, believe that shit
Yeah nigga fuck your cigarette, fuck that phone call motherfucker
I'll be out this motherfucker in a few days
I'll pay these bitches back in spades
Punk ass bastards, long as my AK flexes
we gonna play these bitches
That's how we do this shit
Fuck that I'm out, C.O. turn the fuckin lights out!

    My InterpretationIt is easy to appreciate only the gangsta part of the song, but to me this song speaks a lot more:

    When I get free, motherfuckers better watch they ass
    Soon as I get released, I'ma clock some cash

    'Clock some cash' - He has no plans to open a business, or be good at some skill. Those are thoughts for simpler people who haven't faced the ugliness of prison. 2Pac knows what matters in this world - cash - and how to get it - a job that requires little use of intellect.

    Did some time locked down, but I'm back on the street
    There'll be trouble when they see me

    Prison came and went - now he am back. Yeah, he did some time now lets move on. I guess it was too painful, and now that he is out on the street, too grim and otherworldly to even try to understand it. 2Pac doesn't accept his position of a hardened criminal while those who sent him are free, and maintains his original persona. There will, indeed, be trouble.

    These are lessons that I learned in jail
    Rule one: fuck a busta he can burn in Hell

    Isn't that true. As a child you start with a bunch of like-minded friends. Then you find some who cheat, then some who manipulate, then some who disappoint and by the time you are married it is you and your family. Nation, religion, community are for those who have the luxury of pride not yet trampled. For 2Pac it is just about him, and the rest can go to hell.

    ---
    Awesome song! As I said, the gangsta part is the dress, the metaphorical part about being institutionally repressed and what happens after getting 'free', is the meat.
