[Notorious BIG]
I've been in this game for years, it made me an animal
I've been in this game for years, it made me an animal
I've been in this game for years, it made me an animal
I've been in this game for years, it made me an animal
It's rules to this shit


[Intro]
Yea enough respect
The Bad Boy, Death Row, No Limit
Rap-a-lot, Roc-a-Fella, Cash Money, Ruff Ryders
So So Def, The Inc

And all the incarcerated Scarfaces from ghetto to ghetto
Now introducing to you a new empire
Quiet Money Records and Hush Management
Formely presents, yours truly

[Verse 1]
I'm praised for wicked word-play
Emerge from my herb days
Was boxed in the Bird Cage
Now flock with the Mermaids
A shorty wop, til I copped then I turned age
Saw it unfold, certain wars is untold
Unsolved Mysteries, coffins is closed
A carnivore trickery, caution your role
Any slip-ups will be haunting your souls
So neva get it twisted nigga, keep an iron biscuit witcha
Beast promoted, the street's is coded
For the naked eye times is too deep to notice
Yea I specialize in rhymes, but I peep the bogus
On every known level, I'mma stone cold rebel
Clothes is crisp, I rolls gold the wrist
I was schooled how to tuck, hide and hold the fifth
How to crush, cut, divide and supply the sniff
So if the truth ain't me, then the truth can't be

[Hook]
[Notorious BIG] I've been in this game for years, it made me an animal
[Nas] Peeps that's into drug money, market into rap
[BIG] I've been in this game for years, it made me an animal
[Prodigy] I'm falling and I can't turn back
[BIG] I've been in this game for years, it made me an animal
[Nas] Peeps that's into drug money, market into rap
[Pro] The street's is ki's
[BIG] I've been in this game for years, it made me an animal
[Pro] I'm falling and I can't turn back

[Verse 2]
From base potter to that hard rock white
We all hustlers, live that hard knock life
Some get knocked, and their heart's not right
Cuffed up in the AM, met this charge that night
We all know that the Narc's ain't nice
But that's the price when your bars ain't tight
The beast within release within, you get caught-up lose trust
You don't speak to friends, you lose lust
Rarely fuck, you just seeking sin
You know thugs stay grizzly and love to get busy
The stakes is high, the Benz is long
A few wakes niggas cry, you live, you gon'
If you escape, rules apply, kids is born
And the game won't change, it's the same ol' thang


[Hook]

[Verse 3]
And my mind been backwards since puffing on them back-woods
Stressing on them clappers, and ducking from them crackers
Neva been in Napa, neva fuck wit no Rappers
I'm so gon' wit it, but I'm so long winded
Seen the worst, when I seen my first
Body get caught, I was prolly this short
The victim right beside me, stressed on the sidewalk
But you neva seen a man cry, 'til you seen a man die
The killer shots, the realer the guap
If you gorilla, then it's similar plots
Then if not, you more familiar, you a squealer
You no dilla you hot, fuck around get the whole block locked
But neva me, I've been Boss playing, cooking up sautéing
Til I saw another door, I had to force a nigga way in
Now in all Black wit the gloves and hat
I'm so deep in it, that I can't turn back

[Hook]
