  • [Chorus]
    I Grew Up A Fucking Screw Up
    Got Introduced To The Game, To The Game Then Fucking Blew Up

    Ever Since I Was An Embryo Waitng To Shape Up And Ship Out
    Something In My Brain Said Wake Up And Kick Out
    Roberta And Wayne Stayed Up And Flipped Out
    'cause When I Came I Was Draped Up And Dripped Out
    Snip The Amblical Spit The Government Chip Out
    Peace Up A-Town Down And Then I Dipped Out
    And Oh My Gosh The Osh Gosh Was Picked Out
    I Slipped In Even My Baby Stroller Was Tricked Out
    Somebody Get Him The Lil Niggas Out Of Control
    Put A Lil Bit Of Rum I My Bottle
    I'll Dream About Diamonds And Gold,Gold ,Gold
    To Grow From An Infant To Toddler Was Effervescent
    The Essence Of Adolescence Got My Body Feelin Fresh 'N' Fresh 'N' Fresh 'N'
    And It Was A Blessin To Rhyme And Start Rapping
    I Was The Best In My Section
    With Flows Harder Then Erections
    Still The Best But Now I'm Grown With More Range Then A Texan
    I'm A Heavyweight You Niggas Is Lighter Then My Complexion

    [Chorus: x 4]

    [Young Jeezy]
    From The Front Of Me It's Six Shit I Made It A Burn
    Its Seventeen And A Half All I Need Is The Word
    Say The Ice Is Cool But Them Pots Is Hot
    You Let It Cook Slow But That Money Come Fast
    I Got Whut You Need I Hope You Brought All The Cash
    You Know The Kidd Pimpin All Over The World
    100 Carats Got Me All Over Yo Girl
    5 Bricks And My Coochie Double Bagged
    A Corporate Thug I Run With A Players Circle
    Got A Filled Mob That Disturb Ya Peace
    Blowin Sean J All We Do Is Smoke
    Finished Counting My Bread And I Was Gettin Sum Head
    Whut's Up

    [Chorus: x 4]

    When I Came In To The Game They ain't Do Nuthin But Doubt Me
    Now The Whole Game's Changing It Ain't Nuthin Without Me
    Pickin Up My Sloppy Seconds As They Reach For The Crown
    Only Reason You On That Song Because I Turned That Down
    Went Form Hot Wheels To Big Wheels Hyundais To Bentleys
    Five Course Meals No More Popeyes And Blimpies
    From Alrite To Handsome From One Room To Mansion
    From Hangin On The Block To Throwin Parties In The Hamptons
    From Broke As A Joke To Rich As A Bitch
    I Bought A Plane And A Boat And 6 Other Whips
    No More The From Dice On The Curb I'm Stackin Up Chips
    But Harder Birds On My Nerves To Chicks On My Dick
    Guard Ya Women Dog I Went From Ashy To Classy
    Went From A Kiss On The Cheek To Doin The Nasty
    Reach Yo Hand Up In The Air And You Can Play Wit The Stars
    Its Not The Hand That You Dealt But How You Playin The Cards Boyyyyyyy
