Canibus – I Gotta Story 2 Tell Lyrics
Listen to me everybody, I got a story to tell
Ono wan make beef outta steam fish?
Tell ya artist keep my name out they mouth or you won't have no peace
Compared to Canibus ya pitbulls is poultry
You and Biggie made a dope team but i roast beans
Be careful how you approach things
My name ain't J to the Muahh, mann i got a flow that stings
Its rap music, you confuse it if you want to
I might still diss you just to see what you gon do
You must be gettin' insecure or something
I'm just admirin' ya shit, man, I ain't gon touch it
I been through a lot of things in my life but I learned from it
Put yourself in my shoes, don't I deserve something?
The only difference between me and you is a BUDGET
Don't make me have to go and sign with Suge or something
Remember this: History repeats itself
Whenever that never ending hunger meets itself
Everybody want they wealth, peace and health
When I was fucked up you ain't give me a couple of G's to help, did you?
No, you waited for my cheese to melt
You want all the hot beats and the streets to yourself
Well my patronymic is different enough to attract interest
From anybody in the rap business and I'mma get it cash or credit
Besides a little drama from my first 2 records
Rip the Jackers images is unblemished
Come on I wouldn't bite you I look at you like my dentist
I thought you was number one recommended, why you offended?
Hip hop ain't ya property, you ain't the only tenant
If I win the lottery you can't tell me how to spend it
You got something to say, dont put ya Henchmen in it
Them little monkey faced artist that you sign fa pennies
I refuse to serve them like Denny's
You know they rhymes is petty
Dont tell me that ya school of hard knocks turn preppy
None of yall motha fuckers know me and you never met me
And if my name wasn't shit then you wouldn't sweat me
Thats ubsurd right? Me gettin busy get on ya nerves right?
You really are listenin to the words right?
High when i wrote this but sober when I spoke it
Its not like I tried to promote it like Jay-o did, ya notice?
Mann I was never focused on you
I just spit hard on the mic cause my shit is hot too
I went out and bought ya album 2 times, I ain't hatin'
Next thing I know you talkin Jamaican like you a native
But you really violatin', you dont know what you sayin'
Canibus ain't in the game so you know he ain't playin
I had nothing before and I have nothing now
Fuckin' with a nigga with nothing only brings you down
Listen to me everybody-rybody-rybody-rybody...
