To the hood: y'all don't need me, I need you
Cause my mission's insane, you couldn't vision the pain
Always a snitch in the game. What you want: prison or fame?
Either one, dun, long as my digits the same
An inversion of the rap cliche “the hood needs me.” Psychologically, Cam'ron needs the hood because it grounds him. Practically, he needs the hood to keep track of snitches
“What you want, prison or fame?” means would you rather make your money from drugs (which could lead to prison) or music (which could lead to fame)
Cam will take whichever one makes more money!
