The Day I Was Made

This song is by Silkk The Shocker and appears on the album Made Man (1999).

Today, we have a serious decision that needs to be made for our family
There's a young cat out here that's growing old
Quick and fast in our organization
And today he must step up and be made
And I think you all know
Who's this guy mayn?
This guy is Silkk, Silkk the Shocker
His contribution to the streets has grown so fast he's grown weak. Kay?
You know what, this decision must be made now and only now
Isn't he young?
He's a stand up guy, he's a born leader, he has my blood
I was also a young when I started
So be it
Godfather, please, let me be the one to tell him he's a Made Man
Not now, let the Don tell him
Dannny Divuchi, bring Silkk to me
Godfather, you won't regret it
Yo Don, what up with this visit to
Okay mayn, have a seat, ju know
I'm here to tell you some good news mayn
You're a Made Man now, everybody stand up

Last Year I was the help, This year I'm the boss
You don't like it? Fuck y'all, they'll find y'all niggas lost
Fuck with real niggas, mob figures, not tru niggas that's soft
I talking about visiting some of you niggas, some of you niggas is talk
I always been a made man starting I was a teen
Through the streets where I knew how to hustle
So the Don put me down on his team
Told me ya down to take a chance
Ya gotta be down to dirty dance,
If so the world can be yours, so I put my life in his hands
I know I'm up in the game but I learned quickly
Told me to live good but wouldn't give it up when they come to get you
Told me never make moves with your heart
Never snitch if you get caught,
Never trust nobody a 100 percent realize anybody can be bought
Everybody got a price
Money's nothing without power, respect, loyalty it's a way of life
You've been chosen to be the Made Man everybody gotta turn
But it's rules to this shit that everybody gotta learn
So go from poverty to riches
Before I rule, choose my girl
Today it's the streets, tomorrow I rule the world.

I want the world the and everything up in it
No settling this time, this time, the sky's the limit
Power, loyalty, respect, from the cradle to the grave
I wanted to rule and I did, the day I was made, I'm a Made Man

I want the world the and everything up in it
No settling this time, this time, the sky's the limit
Born leader, cradle to the grave
I wanted to rule and I got my chance the day I was made, I'm a Made Man

I want the finer things, the cars, house, and diamond rings
Wait patiently 'cause I know that time will bring it
I'm a Made Man touch it no mo, I don't touch no coke
I'm a made man, fuck it, I don't even show up for court
Judge tried to give me ten
Pointed the middle finger 'cause I thought he was trippin'
I can tell him why every nigga I had beef with, them niggas wind up missing
Used to be broke but now it's nothing but dollar signs
Used to be convicted felonies
But now if I get convicted it's white collar crimes
Shit never been nervous, if I was never let it show
Cause of my baby face I did a lot of crime but they let me go
Usually females come to get me
Never ever leave no witnesses
If I gotta do it, it gotta get done, nothing personal just business
A Made Man with a vision, learned to master the system
My family never seen me, I just send them presents on Christmas
I want the world, take trips to Reno stop in the Casino
Make a lot of loot, have suits designed by Valentino
I want the world and everything up in it, when I said it I meant it
Time to ride high but this time the sky's the limit
Some it feels like my last line, my last rhyme
Gave the world to little brother never been nothing but the last Don
I want the world
