    General CommentI cannot believe no one has commented on this song yet! It's from the Pharcyde, one of the greatest alternative rap groups of all time, with incomparable production by the late Jay Dilla (RIP). This song has a lot of personal meaning for me since it seems to be about learning to be a man and stand up for yourself even when no one else will- the Pharcyde have such balls rapping about being bullied in school, I only wish more rappers could get over their thug posturing and tell the truth.

    Song MeaningI listen to this song every morning before i start me day.

    "So I stood up and let my free form form free
    Said I'm gonna get some before they knockin' out me"
    ----I totally understand Fat Lip here. Life is nottin more then djungelife - you must kill before getting killed.

    "Can't depend on friends to help you in a squeeze, please
    They got problems of they own"
    ---- I feel more stronger if i only depend om myself...in that way you never have to get disapointed

    I feel this song is about accepting LIFE, and it hardship. Is means that you shouldnt run away from it of you will never experiance the good stuff either - everything is better then living in limbo.
