  • Straight outta Compton, crazy motherfucker named Ice Cube
    From the gang called Niggaz With Attitudes
    When I'm called off, I got a sawed off
    Squeeze the trigger, and bodies are hauled off
    You too, boy, if ya fuck with me
    The police are gonna hafta come and get me
    Off yo ass, that's how I'm goin out
    For the punk motherfuckers that's showin out
    Niggaz start to mumble, they want to rumble
    Mix em and cook em in a pot like gumbo
    Goin off on a motherfucker like that
    With a gat that's pointed at yo ass
    So give it up smooth
    Ain't no tellin when I'm down for a jack move
    Here's a murder rap to keep yo dancin
    With a crime record like Charles Manson
    AK-47 is the tool
    Don't make me act the motherfuckin fool
    Me you can go toe to toe, no maybe
    I'm knockin niggaz out tha box, daily
    Yo weekly, monthly and yearly
    Until them dumb motherfuckers see clearly
    That I'm down with the capital see-P-T
    Boy you can't fuck with me
    So when I'm in your neighborhood, you better duck
    Coz Ice Cube is crazy as fuck
    As I leave, believe I'm stompin'
    But when I come back, boy, I'm comin' straight outta Compton

    Yo Ren
    Whassup?
    Tell 'em where you from!

    Straight outta Compton, another crazy ass nigga
    More punks I smoke, yo, my rep gets bigger
    I'm a bad motherfucker and you know this
    But the pussy ass niggaz don't show this
    But I don't give a fuck, I'ma make my snaps
    If not from the records, from jackin' the crops
    Just like burglary, the definition is 'jackin'
    And when illegally armed it's called 'packin'
    Shoot a motherfucker in a minute
    I find a good piece o' pussy, I go up in it
    So if you're at a show in the front row
    I'm a call you a bitch or dirty-ass ho
    You'll probably get mad like a bitch is supposed to
    But that shows me, slut, you're composed to
    A crazy muthafucker from tha street
    Attitude legit cause I'm tearin' up shit
    MC Ren controls the automatic
    For any dumb muthafucker that starts static
    Not the right hand cause I'm the hand itself
    Every time I pull a AK off the shelf
    The security is maximum and that's a law
    Are-E-N spells Ren but I'm raw
    See, coz I'm the motherfuckin' villain
    The definition is clear, you're the witness of a killin'
    That's takin' place without a clue
    And once you're on the scope, your ass is through
    Look, you might take it as a trip
    But a nigga like Ren is on a gangsta tip
    Straight outta Compton

    Eazy is his name and the boy is comin

    Straight outta Compton
    Is a brotha that'll smother yo' mother
    And make ya sister think I love her
    Dangerous motherfucker raises hell
    And if I ever get caught I make bail
    See, I don't give a fuck, that's the problem
    I see a motherfuckin' cop I don't dodge him
    But I'm smart, lay low, creep a while
    And when I see a punk pass, I smile
    To me it's kinda funny, the attitude showin' a nigga drivin'
    But don't know where the fuck he's going, just rollin'
    Lookin' for the one they call Eazy
    But here's a flash, they never seize me
    Ruthless! Never seen like a shadow in the dark
    Except when I unload, see I'll get over the hesitation
    And hear the scream of the one who got the last penetration
    Give a little gust of wind and I'm jettin'
    But leave a memory no one'll be forgettin'
    So what about the bitch who got shot? Fuck her!
    You think I give a damn about a bitch? I ain't a sucker!
    This is the autobiography of the E, and if you ever fuck with me
    You'll get taken by a stupid dope brotha who will smother
    Word to the motherfucker, straight outta Compton Writer/s: O'Shea Jackson, Lorenzo Jerald Patterson, Andre Romell Young, Eric Wright
