See that underground sound radio don't play
So today to be a star you've gotta look both ways
They want that dope shit, dope shit, dope shit
And I'm here
They say they want that dope shit, dope shit, dope shit
Well alright, but they want something more commercial
Well alright
Now see that underground sound radio don't play
So today to be a star you've gotta look both ways
They want that dope shit, dope shit dope shit
And I'm here
