Chorus(2x):
What y'all want me to do
Keep your shit the hardest
It's about to go down
Niggas is ready to start this war that's for sure
Nigga come and get it
Ride and die why
Cause my niggas is wit it

I want Monopoly money but I ain't even halfway there
Cause do a dirt and a nigga got to take the back way there

What it is is the biz and it's dirty
You'll get rich but life expectancy is about thirty
Take the business to the hallways, driving up for four days
On parole with warrants that'll send me back the raw way
If I get caught across Jersey state lines
Figure this 98 and I been runnin since 89
So that's like 9 years delinquent time
You speakin crime then you know

9 years you owe, get knocked- 9 years you gonna go
No probation or parole more time doin' nothin'
They roam to yard writin rhymes an frontin

Carry niggas greasy because I'm built like that
Burry niggas easy cause they get kilt like that
If you ain't in it wit me than you in my way
But either or you will respect mine
And leave tech 9 and leave it for dude
The realest you gonna feel is when you face your death
Sorry I didn't know nigga don't even waste your breath
Coppin pleas not D why you flippin
Nigga know the only thing I'm really scared of is slippin
Lettin a nigga catch you when I got my gaurd down
So I keep 'em up
Noddin' off with one eye open
I can freak it but there's gonna be a time when I'm close 'em both
Lead poisonin I'm a get hit with an overdose
So I don't drug thing crud thangs
Think I don't know my slug stains, or blood blaze
Raw gun playin drama
Sadness to another niggas momma
I'mma be the the one that puts you up inside the trauma
These are troublesome times
And the crime prevails
And the dark side keeps a nigga's ass in jail
Bada-boom-bada-bing some of this and some of that
I gotta boogie for a minute but you know I'm coming back

Chorus(2x)

Try to show niggas but I can only hope they see
You's a little nigga fit right up in a 6 by 3
Layin' up like this
Lips sewn shut eyes closed
Niggas walk past the casket damn shorty nice pose

You was ballin nigga till your ass got balled out
Called out by some disrespectful ass niggas that go all out
I bet you thought it was real funny
Until it had to get cruddy
Me walkin off leavin' you with all this bloody
What he gonna do when it's all over for real
And the last thing you seein' is that steel
A blast of light that's what he seein' if you blast him right
Hit him in his face and hear that closed casket tight
Cause it's like it ain't nothin but endin it to a nigga
Street sweeper like ahhhh!
Sendin it to a nigga
When you in the house you'll play by house rules
2 words you'll never hear again are house lose
And that's house choose it ain't gonna be that
Cause I can't see that
Ready to get up in this nigga's ass real good so where the weed at
Believe that you ain't going to see nothin' gettin' too familiar
I would tell you what to do but than I'd have to kill you
And it ain't even worth it I ain't goin to build nothin
So I'm just gonna let you go be that same nigga
Still frontin laughin and shit
Like you see somethin' funny
What you sayin' sounds good
But let me see somethin money
For real
(dog nigga, dog nigga, dog nigga, dog nigga nigga)

Chorus(4x)
