  • Tell 'em if they want it, they can come get that (Statik)
    I swear I love my city, I just want a little (Statik)
    See me, they salute me, they ain't ready for that (Statik)
    Detroit vs. Everybody

    I took a bite out the rotten apple by the poison tree
    All these females need to email to make noise
    And I think its changin' a lot, he fuck with my authority
    Then he shall see shells
    But not by the seashore if he gangbangin' or not
    It's simple as the alphabet
    He F with me, that G shall surely see
    He definitely is 'bout it, it's retail fraud, he's weak
    The honest gesture
    The trigger finger 'round the diamond tester, we tail flaw with heat
    The same soldier, it's me, myself and I
    Ridin' 'round shootin' my biopic and my autobiography
    Range Rover, this ain't the squash beef state
    You thinkin' makeup, we thinkin' Lark Voorhies face
    This twin Eagle's of Ares coupe, might as well ride by in an ambulance
    My parachute like skydivin' in Hammer pants
    So call it siblin' rivalry
    Take his life, call it the unforgivable robbery
    A wise man told me that holdin' a grudge is like
    Lettin' somebody just live inside of your head rent free
    Real talk, I don't got time to evict these clowns
    Y'all niggas been bitches, that's none of my business, but I don't sip tea
    (That's Nickel) Ride around his block
    All he knows is pitfalls, that's why he's always climbin' out his drop
    (I got a question) Do you wanna ride or die?
    Welcome to Detroit, mothafucka

    Boy I need no halves and halves, I want the game in entirety
    100 Percent cut, no stitches required
    Welcome to Detroit where if you get that promotion
    Don't worry, man them bullets will still be at your ass firin'
    I still call it safe, I would suck if I was umpirin'
    Boy I hit the beat I just treat that shit like a diary
    I'm offended if you hear my new shit and you ain't rewindin' me
    Self made, I never needed your bail or a wire, see
    I'm never callin' collect, I call to collect
    My homie wanted a Chevy so I put my dog in the vet
    Plus I'm so loyal that that paper, boy, is all that I fetch
    Got the ball in my hand and the ball in the net
    Bitch I'm the D, can't no offence dunk on me
    I'm Mr. Big Shot, these hoes get drunk off me
    I'm overrespected, my mama gated community's overprotected
    So futuristic, I'm already over my next bitch
    Reminiscin' on listenin' to 50 fifty times a day
    Back when tenth grade was like fifty days away
    Tryna get paid fifty ways a day
    Used to put fifty on the layaway, now my closet fifty shades of grey
    Twenty six and I done lived a lifetime a few times
    From futons to Grey Poupons
    In church tryna get a little savings, yeah coupons
    I spit that A1 every day, I'm hittin' new primes
    Now the stakes high, niggas surprised at the new lines
    Or takin' down my number like "you still ain't got a new line?"
    Nah it's the same, we've been laborin' for years
    I know it took way longer than 9 months, but fuck it, it's all in due time
    I turned a blunt to a roach with dreams of bein' a Beatle though
    Don't want to, I need to,gotta learn to keep it cerebral
    When you come up in a place where everyone got a piece but ain't peaceful
    This is just part 1, wait 'til the sequel

    Tell 'em if they want it, they can come get that (Statik)
    I swear I love my city, I just want a little (Statik)
    See me, they salute me, they ain't ready for that (Statik)
    Detroit vs. Everybody

    Comin' from them streets where they thirsty, starvin' to eat
    Just a step away from felon, that's why they call it the D
    On your bleeder, ho, reason for all of this honesty
    Honestly no honor roll, but honor the Phantom stripper pole
    'Cause I'm a Linwood nigga, them young niggas say
    Put a sack on your head, you bleed out like the reverend
    And to think our hood harder then I might break the door
    Know some killers pull the trigger for a Swisher and Molly
    In a blink I'll hit your kisser, bet you ass ain't rememberin'
    They say my city's tougher than two fat bitches scissoring
    So nigga I'm a veteran, retire my letterman
    I kings bout that scuba but I ain't get to no betterin'
    Cough up a line, 313 where I'm from
    Zan got me cross eyed like Bernstein's son
    And these niggas try to copy but I hold on this time
    It's us vs them, Detroit vs Everybody yeah

    Lately it seems as if it's me against the world
    Like it was before my life became a movie
    And they used to use my mothafuckin' trailer to tease me with
    But I flipped that script like AB filler
    Painkillers to pop that lid off that safety seal
    It made me feel amazing, made me celebrate me
    And if I may reiterate, I ain't even need a script
    I ain't bein' conceited, but I made it to radio, eat a dick
    I still never ABC the shit
    Mainstream appeal and the skill is what made me iller
    Since before they called Jay Dee Dilla
    I was daydreamin' one day I would be the shit
    And if I ever end up escapin' the streets I swear that I would stay here
    Still in it, I'm crazy, I'll always be real
    Don't make me steal an 18 wheeler
    Break all of my friends out of here and take 'em straight to the Mercedes dealer
    Peel off back to the same block that we came from, rampage
    You crazy for me to flip
    What's makin' you think I need a switch? 'Cause I'm Adrian Peterson
    When he's raging and heated and on the way to go beat his kid
    On the track I spank like he just did
    (Detroit!) I can't never leave this bitch
    Sick of bein' treated like me and shit, but Jesus
    I can just see why people stop callin' me to do features
    And them cyphers on BET 'cause if
    I wasn't me I probably wouldn't want to play with me neither, shit
    Seems to be reachin' this fever pitch, 180 Degrees in here
    Trying to wait for the cedar chips
    Mcs just bit off more than they can chew like a face full of Swedish Fish
    Or Lorena with two penises
    Hateful and genius, this inconvenience
    And for the record, you won't want this kind of static
    In your life, when I'm makin' you cling to it
    They consider tryna reinsulate yah
    When it's maybe in for another crazy winter
    It's so cold in the D, it is as days begin to tick away
    But ain't this what really made me into the angry bitter blonde
    But ain't we sick of bein' underdog
    Don't make me unleash this shit, release this Pit may even seem as if
    I'm yankin' your chain a bit or maybe the way in which I'm sayin' shit
    Is playin' with your relation, changin' it it's still the same shit and Shady's still a lady killer
    Since the day I went insane and attacked the baby sitter
    With a potato peeler and mushed her face into the entertainment center
    It's like another plane just entered into Ukraine again
    The Bermuda Triangle and attempted to make a safety center
    Awaiting anyone who ain't affiliated could be danger
    Did you make arrangements with the gangsters 'fore you came here?
    And if they mention us

    Tell 'em if they want it, they can come get that (Statik)
    I swear I love my city, I just want a little (Statik)
    See me, they salute me, they ain't ready for that (Statik)
    Detroit vs. Everybody

    What up doe
    It's the godfather Trick Trick
    You either ridin' with us
    Or gettin' rolled on
    That means Detroit vs. Everybody!
    Hey Em
    Let me get that instrumental take it down to the hood
    Let the little homies get this remix crackin'
