    Another day, another dolla (dolla)
    Same block, same nigga, same part, same green

    Or is it the same nightmares (nightmares)
    We let the thugs do it for us, we don't cry tears (that's right)

    Gotta feed the block, niggaz starvin', they got appetites (ayy)
    And this is everyday, it never gets old (old)

    This ain't a rap song, nigga this is my life (this is my life)
    And if the hood was a battlefield then I'd earn stripes (yeah)

    Just because we stack paper and we ball outrageous (ball outrageous)
    Them alphabet boards gotta us under surveillance (ayy)
    Like animals they lock us in cages
    The same nigga that's a star when you put 'em on stages
    I ain't cheat, played the hand I was dealt
    Tried to tax the grand pearl when I got it myself
    (Let's get it) No nuts, no glory (no glory)
    My biography, you damn right, the true story (yeah)
    Set the city on fire, and I didn't even try (try)
    Run these streets all day, I can sleep when I die (ayy)

    Cause if you lookin' for me you you can find me
    On the block disobeyin' the law
    Real G, thoroughbred from the streets
    Pants saggin' with my gun in my draws
    Just to keep on movin' now
    Just to keep on movin' now
    Just to keep on movin' now
    Just to keep on movin' now

    If you lookin' for me I'll be on the block
    With my thang cocked possibly sittin' on a drop now
    Cause I'm a rider (yeah)
    I'm just a soul survivor (yeah)

    If you lookin' for me I'll be on the block
    With my thang cocked possibly sittin' on a drop now
