      About "I Love To Give You Light"

      Lyrics for Snoop Dogg - "I Love To Give You Light"

      [Minister]
      Say man may ushers, deacons, lock the door

      (I love, to give you light)

      [Snoop Dogg]
      Yeah, first of all
      Giving honor to God, and all the ministers on the pulpits
      Ushers, deacons, and my lovely choir
      They sound so beautiful, don't you agree?
      Sing it sister,
      Yeah, we'd like to welcome y'all inside this R&G
      Rhythm & Gangsta: The Masterpiece
      Such a, heavenly experience
      Alchemist, break it down for me nephew
      Let me preach to 'em one time, church

      [Snoop Dogg]
      In the beginning as a child I was chosen
      Though not knowing the reason while still my eyes opened
      Whatever the purpose, I surfaced above the fog
      Love was given to all, outside living the ball
      As an adolescent, one black child, I had a message
      To reach teaching the masses, I wrote my first passage
      It was jotted down, created in the form of a rap
      I'm young, living in the city of jackers and gang-banging
      And dope dealing, cold feeling to be a product of niggas around you
      Once you get on top they down you
      But the temptation got me, streets caught me watching
      I found myself grinding on the streets quite often
      With a blue rag, banging the dub, fo'-fifth coffin
      At the spot, 61st, forty blocks from the Eastside
      Where most of the big homies had a glock and flossed the G-ride
      Niggas throwing up hands but it wasn't no peace signs
      Never fo' a second did I think to let my light shine
      Hardheaded, thought I was grown, messing up
      Disrespecting my home, not caring 'bout what moms what saying
      And then I found out that mom wasn't playing
      Today, I love you for it, back then, I couldn't understand
      Get my life right, step it up, nigga be a man
      Never be a victim, of what the system might hit you with
      Through the stripes still gotta shine my light
      I've grown, to comprehend the game; my name is Big Snoop Boss Dogg
      Just a block and a phone call away
      I've reached the status, of a modern day John Baptist
      I'm preaching just what I practice
      To each and all, I got a word from the Beach to across the globe
      Man woman young and old
      Don't gain the world, lose your soul to spite
      Many circumstances Doggy gon' shine my light cause I love you

      (I love, to give you light)

      [Minister]
      And the people that is locked up, locked down
      And the people that's locked down
      Also God, should purchase the new, Escalade
      On 24's, with the spinning things, ha ha
      I need you to, right now, look at your neighbors
      Cause a lot of y'all think y'all going to heaven huh
      And you ain't gon' go!
      So I need you right now to, look at your neighbor
      And say neighbor, say neighbor, you ain't going!
      You ain't going!
