  • Yeah, for the dogs dem, you know
    Man when shit gets like this, in the whole city
    Shit's crazy right now, this shit ain't gonna stop
    You know shit gonna get a lot more worse before it get any better

    Look
    Mama hit my phone and said rap's no good
    Better than her telling me the check's no good
    Now they wanna act like I do no good
    Funny 'cause I really did more than I should
    I made a decision last night that I would die for it
    Just to show the city what it takes to be alive for it
    Can't get me on the line so they hang me out to dry for it
    You know 40 wants peace, but I'm down to cut ties for it
    And I can't sleep these days unless I take one
    If they don't have a story these days, they'll make one
    Life is always on, man, I never get a break from it
    Doesn't matter where I go, I can never get away from it
    They give me loyalty and I don't gotta pay for it
    Same way, brands gotta break for it
    Keeping people fed is my only peace of mind now
    And I turn the six upside down, it's a nine now
    I made a decision last night that I would die for it

    (Dying, yeah, yeah, gangstas, gangstas, gangstas)
    (Dying, yeah, yeah, gangstas, gangstas, gangstas)
    (Dying, yeah, yeah, gangstas, gangstas, gangstas)
    (Dying, yeah, yeah, gangstas, gangstas, gangstas)

    All these hand outs, man, it's getting outta hand
    I'ma start telling niggas "Get it how you can"
    I got it right now so I'm everybody's friend
    If I ever lose, I bet we never speak again
    I made a decision last night I'd die for it
    Just to show the city what it takes to be alive for it
    First place, first place, man, we can't be tied for it
    I only drove it five times, paid 1.5 for it
    Keychain go jang-a-lang, I wanna do major things
    MJ in every way, I just don't fade away
    Six upside down, it's a nine now
    Like Mannie, like Stunna, man, shit is big time now
    And I made a decision last night that I would die for it

    (Dying, yeah, yeah, gangstas, gangstas, gangstas)
    (Dying, yeah, yeah, gangstas, gangstas, gangstas)
    (Dying, yeah, yeah, gangstas, gangstas, gangstas)
    (Dying, yeah, yeah, gangstas, gangstas, gangstas)

    (Make me feel the same way that I did to you)
    (Trust me when I say I'll go without you)
    (Trust me when I say that shit is old moves)
    (God made himself a way from me to you)
    (Tried to kill me but they still want the views)
    (Tried to kill me but they still want the views)
    (Tried to kill me but I am very much alive on the six side)
    (Yeah, I said I am very much alive on the six side)
