Such a great song. It's rare to see a rap song that promotes peace, and that's what makes this song special.

Thank you for making this song for us toy soldiers. For you that don't know. We are soldiers for Marshal. Anything he needs. We got em. That means killing somebody I love or giving him our own lives. That's what you sign up for.-313

And talkin' about something that I knew nothing about
Plus Dre told me stay out, this just wasn't my beef
So I did, I just fell back, watched and gritted my teeth
While he's all over t.v. down talkin' a man who literally saved my life
Like f**k it i understand this is business
And this s**t just isn't none of my business
But still knowin' this s**t could pop off at any minute cause

Great song... Goes out to my baseball team... Great group of guys... I would take a bullet for any of them...

And even though the battle was won, I feel like we lost it
I spent too much energy on it, honestly I'm exhausted
And I'm so caught in it I almost feel I'm the one who caused it
This ain't what I'm in hip-hop for, it's not why I got in it
That was never my object for someone to get killed
Why would I wanna destroy something I help build
It wasn't my intentions, my intentions were good
I went through my whole career without ever mentionin'
And that was just out of respect for not runnin' my mouth

I'd never drag them in battles that I can handle unless I absolutely have to
I'm supposed to set an example
I need to be the leader, my crew looks for me to guide 'em
If some s**t ever does pop off, I'm supposed to be beside 'em
That Ja s**t I tried to squash it, it was too late to stop it
There's a certain line you just don't cross and he crossed it
I heard him say Hailie's name on a song and I just lost it
It was crazy, this s**t went way beyond some Jay-z and Nas s**t
And even though the batt

Step by step, heart to heart, left right left
We all fall down...

Step by step, heart to heart, left right left
We all fall down like toy soldiers
Bit by bit, torn apart, we never win
But the battle wages on for toy soldiers

I'm supposed to be the soldier who never blows his composure
Even though I hold the weight of the whole world on my shoulders
I ain't never supposed to show it, my crew ain't supposed to know it
Even if it means goin' toe to toe with a Benzino it don't matter

Actually @Luis the song is about people fighting and the after math (death in this case) that drama can cause. I still think it's ironic that the video shows proof as the one dying only shortly after for proof to really die as shown in the video.
