    The Cadillac-a with the diamond in the back
    With the sunroof top

    Brand new again, never get old
    When I was little, boy they said I had a old soul
    Old gold
    Riding with some pimps on a ho stroll, now that's loco
    And you're local, and I'm global
    That means worldwide like a rising tide
    I'm gonna subside and rise again like clockwork
    C-Bone is gonna show you how the Glock work (brap)
    Nonviolent though, no violence, just styling ho
    From the birthplace of MLK where everything ain't okay but KKK
    I'm more Malcolm than Martin, come get some, be a target
    Standing in the kitchen with the AK, aka the Choppa

    Play with death, you get stung like the Crocodile Hunter
    Got them racks, slanging them packs and no we can't leave them sacks alone
    Hired an assistant cause my weed need a chaperone
    (Luda!) And then Big Boi will pass the lighter
    I'm convinced that we started the California brush fires
    One, two, and it don't stop, so many whips at my crib
    Ya chick came, the bitch thought it was a road block
    Spending cash so fast, you'd think I'm foolish
    And I love chicks with ass so it arch like St. Louis
    Got chicks hugging my nuts like a speedo
    Cause when I'm on the mic, I go for broke like T.O
    But we know I'm rich and pay the bills at my mother house
    Atlanta cribs jealous cause I'm chilling at my other house
    Yea you may be able to out-trap me
    But none of you niggas will ever out-rap me

    What is this that you say?
    What's this you say?
    Is that what you say?
    Is that what you say?
    Is that what you say?
    They stay out all night on the basketball court
    Practising, and practising their jump shot
    Practising their hook-shot
    And practising and practising, and then they're qualified for the majors
    Well why can't you stay up all night practising your multiplication
    Practising your Chemistry, practising your Physics
    Why can't you stay up practising that?
    If practice makes perfect, then why do you just specialize in fun things
    And not in the things that require effort, commitment, and sacrifice Writer/s: CORY ANTONIO ANDREWS, CHRISTOPHER BRIAN BRIDGES, WILBERT LEE ELLIS, CLIFFORD HARRIS, LAWRENCE BUTLER, ANTWAN PATTON
