    Now... what y'all wanna do?
    Wanna be ballers? Shot-callers?
    Brawlers -- who be dippin in the Benz wit the spoilers
    On the low from the Jake in the Taurus
    Tryin to get my hands on some Grants like Horace
    Yeah livin the raw deal, three course meals
    Spaghetti, fettucini, and veal
    But still, everything's real in the field
    And what you can't have now, leave in your will
    But don't knock me for tryin to bury
    seven zeros, over in Rio Dijanery
    Ain't nobody's hero, but I wanna be heard
    on your Hot 9-7 everyday, that's my word
    Swimmin in women wit they own condominiums
    Five plus Fives, who drive Millineums
    It's all about the Benjamins, what?
    I get a fifty pound bag of ooh for the mutts
    Five carats on my hands wit the cuts
    And swim in European figures
    Fuck bein a broke nigga

    We see through, that's why nobody never gon' believe you
    You should do what we do, stack chips like (Hebrews)
    Don't let the melody intrigue you (uh-uh)
    Cause I leave you, I'm only here
    for that green paper which the eagle

    I'm strictly tryin to cop those, colossal sized Picasso's
    And have papi flip coke outside Delgado's (whoo!)
    Mienda, with cash flowin like Sosa
    And the latin chick tranportin in the chocha
    Stampedin over, pop Mo's, never sober
    Lex and Range Rovers dealin weight by Minnesota (uhh)
    Avoidin NARC's wit camcorders and Chevy Novas (uh-huh)
    Stash in the buildin wit this chick named Alona (uh-huh)
    from Daytona, when I was young I wants to bone her (uh-huh)
    But now I only hit chicks that win beauty pageants (ahahaha)
    Trickin, they takin me skiing, at the Aspens (c'mon)
    Uhh, gangsta mental, stay poppin Cristal
    Pack a black pist-al in the Ac' Coupe that's dark brown (whoo!)

    Half a brick of yea, in the bra, where her titties at
    And I'm livin that, whole life, we push weight (uh-huh)
    Fuck the state pen, fuck hoes at Penn State (c'mon)
    Listen close it's Francis, the Praying Mantis
    Attack with the Mac, my left hand spit, right hand
    grip on the whip, for the smooth getaway
    Playa haters get away or my lead will spray
    Squeeze off til I'm empty, don't tempt me
    Only, to Hell I send thee, all about the Benji's
