Tell me why are we so blind to see
That the ones we hurt are you and me?
As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I take a look at my life and realize there's nothin' left
'Cause I've been blastin' and laughin' so long that
Even my momma thinks that my mind is gone
That's just the way it is Things will never be the same That's just the way it is Ooh, yeah
Instinct leads me to another flow
Every time I hear a brother call a girl a bitch or a ho
Tryna make a sister feel low
You know all of that gots to go
To all the ladies in the place with style and grace
Allow me to lace these lyrical douches in your bushes (uh)
Who rock grooves and make moves with all the mamis?
The back of the club, sippin' Moët is where you'll find me (what?)
I'm representing for them gangstas all across the world
(Still) Hitting them corners in them low-lows, girl
Still taking my time to perfect the beat
And I still got love for the streets, it's the D-R-E
Chillin' with the homies, smellin' the bud
Double parked and I'm talkin' to Dub
About who got a plan, who got a plot
Whom got got, and who got shot
'Cause everybody knows that he got the info
Crazy Toones hangin out the window
He ain't got money, and he ain't got the loot
And every time that I see him, he's always a-beggin'
Now let me welcome everybody to the wild, wild west A state that's untouchable like Elliot Ness
Street's disciple, my raps are trifle
I shoot slugs from my brain just like a rifle Sampede the stage, I leave the microphone split Play Mr. Tuffy while I'm on some Pretty Tone shit
s it worth it? Let me work it
I put my thang down, flip it and reverse it
Missy be puttin' it down
I'm the hottest 'round
I told y'all mother-ooh
Y'all can't stop me now
Listen to me now
I'm lasting twenty rounds
