  • It's the Dynasty niggas, as promised
    The world's most infamous
    Roc-a-fella Records
    This is Roc La Familia
    It's Young Hova, Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek, Amil-lion
    It's the Dynasty niggas, 2000 to infinity
    This is ghetto to ghetto, gutter to gutter
    Street corner to street corner, project to project
    Worldwide, walk with us niggas
    Hoffa, Dash, it's the Dynasty niggas
    Check it out
    Uhh, walk with me, talk to me, yo

    The theme song to The Sopranos
    Plays in the key of life on my, mental piano
    Got a strange way of seeing life like
    I'm Stevie Wonder with, beads under the doo-rag
    Intuition is there even when my vision's impaired, yeah
    Knowing I can go, just switching a spare
    On the highway of life, nigga it's sharp in my sight
    Oh! Keen senses ever since I was a, teen on the benches
    Every time somebody like Enus was mentioned
    I would turn green, me, being in the trenches
    Him, living adventurous not worrying about expenditures
    I'm braving temperatures below zero, no hero
    No father figure, you gotta pardon a nigga
    But I'm starving my niggas, and the weight loss in my figure
    Is starting to darken my heart, bout to get to my liver
    Watch it my niggas, I'm trying to be calm but I'm goin' get richer
    Through any means, with that thing that Malcolm palmed in the picture
    Never read the Qur'an or Islamic scriptures
    Only psalms I read was on the arms of my niggas
    Tattooed so I carry on like I'm non-religious
    Clap whoever stand between Shawn and figures
    Niggas, say it's the dawn but I'm superstitious
    Shit is as dark as it's been, nothing is going as you predicted
    I move with biscuits, stop the harder niggas acting too suspicious
    This is, food for thought, you do the dishes Writer/s: Justin Smith, Shawn Carter, Woody Cunningham
