  • Ain't no question if I want it, I need it
    I can feel it slowly drifting away from me
    I'm on the edge, so why you playing? I'm saying
    I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

    Not for nothing I've foreseen it, I dreamed it
    I can feel it slowly drifting away from me
    No more chances if you blow this, you bogus
    I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

    Penitentiary chances, the devil dances
    And eventually answers to the call of Autumn
    All of them fallin' for the love of ballin'
    Got caught with thirty rocks, the cop look like Alec Baldwin
    Inter-century anthems based off inner-city tantrums
    Based off the way we was branded
    Face it, Jerome get more time than Brandon
    And at the airport they check all through my bag and
    Tell me that it's random
    But we stay winning, this week has been a bad massage
    I need a happy ending and a new beginning
    And a new fitted and some job opportunities that's lucrative
    This the real world, homie, school finished
    They done stole your dreams, you'ont know who did it
    I treat the cash the way the government treats AIDS
    I won't be satisfied 'til all my niggas get it, get it?

    Ain't no question if I want it, I need it
    I can feel it slowly drifting away from me
    I'm on the edge, so why you playing? I'm saying
    I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

    Is hip hop, just a euphemism for a new religion?
    The soul music for the slaves that the youth is missing
    But this is more than just my road to redemption
    Malcolm West had the whole nation standing at attention
    As long as I'm in Polos smilin' they think they got me
    But they'd try to crack me if they ever see a black me
    I thought I chose a field where they couldn't sack me
    If a nigga ain't shootin' a jump shot, running a track meet
    But this pimp is, at the top of Mount Olympus
    Ready for the world's game, this is my Olympics
    We make 'em say ho 'cause the game's so pimpish
    Choke a South Park writer with a fishstick
    I insisted to get up offa this dick
    And these drugs, niggas can't resist it
    Remind me when they tried to have Ali enlisted
    If I ever wasn't the greatest, nigga, I must have missed it

    Ain't no question if I want it, I need it
    I can feel it slowly drifting away from me
    I'm on the edge, so why you playing? I'm saying
    I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

    I need more drinks and less lights
    And that American Apparel girl in just tights
    She told the director she tryna get in a school
    He said, "Take them glasses off and get in the pool"
    It's been a while since I watched the tube
    'Cause like a Crip said
    "I got way too many blues for any more bad news"
    I was looking at my resume, feeling real fresh today
    They rewrite history, I don't believe in yesterday
    And what's a black Beatle anyway, a fucking roach?
    I guess that's why they got me sitting in fucking coach
    My guy said I need a different approach
    'Cause people is looking at me like I'm sniffing coke
    It's not funny anymore try different jokes
    Tell 'em hug and kiss my ass, x and o
    And kiss the ring while they at it
    Do my thing while I got it
    Play strings for the dramatic
    Ending of that wack shit
    Act like I ain't had a belt in two classes
    I ain't got it I'm coming after whoever who has it
    I'm coming after whoever, who has it?
    You blowing up, that's good, fantastic
    That y'all, it's like that y'all
    I don't really give a fuck about it at all
    'Cause the same people that tried to black ball me
    Forgot about two things, my black balls

    Ain't no question if I want it, I need it
    I can feel it slowly drifting away from me
    I'm on the edge, so why you playing? I'm saying
    I will never ever let you live this down, down, down

    Aye yo
    I done copped Timbs, that's lived in lenses
    Kid, Armani suits, fresh fruits, Bally boots and Benzes
    Counting up, smoking, one cuff
    Live as a red Jag', a Louis bag, grabbing a blunt, fuck it
    Steam about a hundred and one L's
    Kites off the jails, buying sweats, running up in Stetson
    Nigga hat game was special
    It matched every black pair of Nike's
    Throwing dice for decimals
    The older head, bolder head, would train a soldier head
    Make sure he right in the field, not a soldier dead
    That meant code red, bent off the black skunk
    The black Dutch, back of the old shed
    If you can't live, you dying
    You give or buy in
    Keep it real or keep it moving, keep grinding
    Keep shining, to every young man, this is a plan
    Learn from others like your brothers Rae and Kanye

    Not for nothing I've foreseen it, I dreamed it
    I can feel it slowly drifting away from me
    No more chances if you blow this, you bogus
    I will never ever let you live this down, down, down Writer/s: Corey Todd Woods, Ernest Dion Wilson, Gene Clark, Jim Mcguinn, Kanye Omari West, Malik Yusef El Shabazz Jones, Mike Dean, Roger James Mcguinn, Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi
