Can anyone help me identify two obscure songs from vaguely remembered lyrics?

I suppose this is going to be another long shot, but I heard a couple of songs on a college radio station a few years back [probably between 2001 and 2006] which I would really like to hear again. Unfortunately, I have not been able to find anything about them on the web.

The first song was, as I remember, at least somewhat hip-hop styled, and included lyrics like:

"All the ladies think I'm strange, cause I still hop the train."
"A couple of cops - they know my name, but I still hop the train."

The other song was not hip hop, more of a rock style, and had the lyrics:

"[something I don't remember], got arrested."
"Got a needle in my arm, now I'm gettin' tested."

In case it's any help, the station I heard these on was WIDR-FM in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

It doesn't match exactly, but could the second one be Gomez's "Get Myself Arrested"?

Black Moon's Powaful Impak! has "I still hop the train," but it's from '93.

Good suggestions both; thanks! But, I'm afraid neither of those were the songs I'm looking for.

Is the second one Acting Class by Quiet Desperado (http://rapgenius.com/Quiet-desperado-acting-class-lyrics#note-503729)? Seems impossible to find on youtube because of 'Desperado' but I'm sure you have your methods.

And the first, how about The 2004 Rap Up by PackFM; with misheard lyrics near the bottom:

See the shit never change, I still hop the train
Broke as fuck, but I still rock my name on my chain
