Build a New Life: “Yo, home to Bel-Air.”


Now this is a story all about how My life got flipped-turned upside down and I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there, I’ll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air. In west Philadelphia born and raised, on the playground was where I spent most of my days. Chillin’ out maxin’ relaxin’ all cool, and all shooting some b-ball outside of the school, when a couple of guys who were up to no good, started making trouble in my neighborhood. I got in one little fight and my mom got scared, she said, “You’re movin’ with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air.”

 

 

 

 

I begged and pleaded with her day after day, but she packed my suitcase and sent me on my way. She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket. I put my Walkman on and said, “I might as well kick it.” First class, yo, this is bad, drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass. Is this what the people of Bel-Air living like? Hmm, this might be alright.

But wait I hear they’re prissy, bourgeois, all that. Is this the type of place that they just send this cool cat? I don’t think so, I’ll see when I get there, I hope they’re prepared for the prince of Bel-Air.

Well, the plane landed and when I came out there was a dude who looked like a cop standing there with my name out. I ain’t trying to get arrested yet, I just got here. I sprang with the quickness like lightning, disappeared.

I whistled for a cab and when it came near the license plate said “Fresh” and it had dice in the mirror. If anything I could say that this cab was rare But I thought, “Nah, forget it.”– “Yo, home to Bel-Air.”

I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8, And I yelled to the cabbie, “Yo home smell ya later.” I looked at my kingdom, I was finally there, to sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel-Air.
