  • You're now tuned into the mu'fuckin greatest
    Turn the music up in the headphones
    Tim, you can go and brush your shoulder off nigga I got you, yeah

    If you feelin' like a pimp nigga, go and brush your shoulders off
    Ladies is pimps too, gon' brush your shoulders off
    Niggas is crazy baby, don't forget that boy told you
    Get, that, dirt off your shoulder

    I probably owe it to y'all, proud to be locked by the force
    Tryin' to hustle some things, that go with the Porsche
    Feelin' no remorse, feelin' like my hand was forced
    Middle finger to the Lord, nigga grip I'm a boss
    Stab the ladies they love me, from the bleachers they screamin'
    All the ballers is bouncin' they like the way I be leanin'
    All the rappers be hatin', off the track that I'm makin'
    But all the hustlers they love it just to see one of us make it
    Came from the bottom the bottom, to the top of the pots
    Nigga London, Japan and I'm straight off the block
    Like a running back, get it man, I'm straight off the block
    I can run it back nigga cause I'm straight with the Roc

    If you feelin' like a pimp nigga, go and brush your shoulders off
    Ladies is pimps too, gon' brush your shoulders off
    Niggas is crazy baby, don't forget that boy told you
    Get, that, dirt off your shoulder

    You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder
    You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder
    You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder
    You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder

    Your homey Hov' in position, in the kitchen with soda
    I just whipped up a watch, tryin' to get me a Rover
    Tryin' to stretch out the coca, like a wrestler, yessir
    Keep the Heckler close, you know them smokers'll test ya
    But like, fifty-two cards when I'm, I'm through dealin'
    Now fifty-two bars come out, now you feel 'em
    Now, fifty-two cars roll out, remove ceiling
    In case fifty-two broads come out, now you chillin'
    With a boss bitch of course S.C. on the sleeve
    At the 40/40 club, ESPN on the screen
    I paid a grip for the jeans, plus the slippers is clean
    No chrome on the wheels, I'm a grown-up for real

    If you feelin' like a pimp nigga, go and brush your shoulders off
    Ladies is pimps too, gon' brush your shoulders off
    Niggas is crazy baby, don't forget that boy told you
    Get, that, dirt off your shoulder

    You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder
    You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder
    You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder
    You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder

    Your boy back in the building, Brooklyn we back on the map
    Me and my beautiful bitch in the back of that 'Bach
    I'm the realest that run it, I just happen to rap
    I ain't gotta clap at 'em, niggas scared of that black
    I drop that "Black Album" then I back, out it
    As the best rapper alive nigga ask about me
    From Bricks to Billboards, from grams to Grammy's
    The O's to opposite, Orphan Annie
    You gotta pardon Jay, for sellin' out the Garden in a day
    I'm like a young Marvin in his hey'
    I'm a hustler homey, you a customer crony
    Got some, dirt on my shoulder, could you brush it off for me?

    If you feelin' like a pimp nigga, go and brush your shoulders off
    Ladies is pimps too, gon' brush your shoulders off
    Niggas is crazy baby, don't forget that boy told you
    Get, that, dirt off your shoulder

    You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder
    You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder
    You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder
    You gotta get, that, dirt off your shoulder

    You're now tuned into the mu'fuckin' greatest

    Best rapper alive, best rapper alive

  • Bill from UsWell the lyrics here include the Linkin Park song Lying from you. Mash Up.
    So lets someone fix that.
  • Fabio from New Orleans, LaLove this song. Haters won't be bringing me down any longer.

    I know it's been out for years, but I only recently changed from childish anti-obscenity to a teen who can stand obscenities.
