    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
    A real gangsta-ass nigga plays his cards right
    A real gangsta-ass nigga never runs his fucking mouth
    'Cause real gangsta-ass niggas don't start fights
    And niggas always gotta high cap
    Showing all his boys how he shot 'em
    But real gangsta-ass niggas don't flex nuts
    'Cause real gangsta-ass niggas know they got 'em
    And everything's cool in the mind of a gangsta
    'Cause gangsta-ass niggas think deep
    Up three-sixty-five ayo 24/7
    'Cause real gangsta-ass niggas don't sleep
    And all I gotta say to you
    Wannabe, gonnabe, cock sucking, pussy-eating pranksters
    Is when the fire dies down what the fuck you gonna do
    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta

    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
    Feeding the poor and helping out with their bills
    Although I was born in Jamaica
    Now I'm in the U.S. making deals
    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
    I mean one that you don't really know
    Riding around town in a drop-top Benz
    Hitting switches in my black '64
    Now gangsta-ass niggas come in all shapes and colors
    Some got killed in the past
    But this gangsta here was a smart one
    Started living for the Lord and I'll last
    Now all I gotta say to you
    Wannabe, gonnabe, pussy eating, cock sucking prankstas
    When the shit jumps off what the fuck you gonna do
    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta

    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
    A real gangsta-ass nigga knows the play
    The real gangsta-ass niggas get the flyest of the bitches
    Ask that gangsta-ass nigga Little Jake
    Now bitches look at gangsta-ass niggas like a stop sign
    And play the role of Little Miss Sweet
    But catch the bitch all alone get the digits, take her out
    And end up hittin' the ass with the meat
    'Cause gangsta-ass niggas be the game playas
    And everythings quiet in the clique
    A gangsta-ass nigga pulls the trigger
    And his partners in the posse ain't tellin' off shit
    Real gangsta-ass niggas don't talk much
    All ya hear is the black from the gun blast
    And real gangsta-ass niggas don't run for shit
    'Cause real gangsta-ass niggas can't run fast
    Now when you in the free world talkin' shit do the shit
    Hit the pen and let a mothafucka shank ya
    But niggas like myself kick back and peep game
    'Cause damn it feels good to be a gangsta

    And now, a word from the President

    Damn it feels good to be a gangsta
    Gettin' voted into the White House
    Everything lookin' good to the people of the world
    But the Mafia family is my boss
    So every now and then I owe a favor gettin' down
    Like lettin' a big drug shipment through
    And send 'em to the poor community
    So we can bust you know who
    So voters of the world keep supportin' me
    And I promise to take you very far
    Other leaders better not upset me
    Or I'll send a million troops to die at war
    To all you Republicans, that helped me win
    I sincerely like to thank you
    'Cause now I got the world swingin' from my nuts
    And damn it feels good to be a gangsta Writer/s: Brad Jordan, James Smith, John Okuribido
