  • You wanted to fuckin' walk around these roaches
    These niggas is roaches
    These niggas is mere motherfuckin' mortals
    I'm tryna push you to supreme bein'
    You don't wanna motherfuckin'
    You don't wanna embrace your destiny
    You wanna get by
    You don't wanna go into the motherfuckin' dark
    Where it's lonely
    You can't handle the motherfuckin', the pain
    Of the motherfuckin' not knowin' when the shit is gonna stop

    Mama's tryna save me
    But she don't know I'm tryna save her
    Man, them niggas tried to play me
    Man, 'til I got this paper
    You're nobody 'til somebody kills you

    "Blast for me" the last words from my nigga
    On the pavement, born killers, body shivers
    Drug money, dollar figures
    Hustlers moving out of rentals, art of war is mental
    Having sushi down in Nobu
    Strapped like an Afghan soldier, nowhere to go to
    So it's bang, no survivors
    Only riders on my rider, murder rate rises
    Stalkin' niggas on their IG's, never; I be
    Still solo, Under Armour still Polo
    No wire, on fire
    My desire for fine things made me a liar, a shooter
    Gettin' high feeling like it's voodoo
    Nine lives, SK with the cooler
    Makaveli in the 'Rari, still B-I double G, I, E
    I pray you smoke with me
    Go to bed with a kilo like Casino
    Janet Reno, we all we got the creed to Nino
    Pretty cars in the driveway
    If you cut it then you sideways, double up, crime pays

    Mama's tryna save me
    But she don't know I'm tryna save her
    Man, them niggas tried to play me
    Man, 'til I got this paper
    You're nobody 'til somebody kills you

    You fuckin' wanna walk around with these niggas?
    What the fuck is their culture?
    Where the fuck is their souls at?
    What defines you?
    These niggas with these fuckin' silly looks on their faces
    You wanna walk around with them or you wanna walk with God, nigga!
    Make up your got damn mind!

    I'm from where the streets test you
    Niggas mix business and pleasure where the cocaine measure
    The narcotics is our product
    The by-product, you walk up on me, I cock it
    New Mercedes as it peels off
    Nothing penetrates the steel doors, gang signs, see 'em all
    I said my prayer as I'm countin' sheep
    Never really athletic, but I play for keeps, do you feel me?
    The mortician, the morgue fillin' with more snitches
    We kill 'em and taking their bitches, R.I.P
    Chinchillas on a winter night
    Black bottles when I'm feelin' like, you wanna know what winners like
    And I'm never on that tour bus
    Just a decoy for niggas, the PJ's for two of us
    Ciroc boys down to die for Diddy
    My niggas ride for less, keep it real, homie, made me filthy
    Touch mine until it's even keel
    Like I'm knowing every heathen will, closed the deal with Steven Hill
    We Magic City of the networks
    Cut a nigga cast off, how my nigga net worths

    Mama's tryna save me
    But she don't know I'm tryna save her
    Man, them niggas tried to play me
    Man, 'til I got this paper
    You're nobody 'til somebody kills you

    Fuck you wanna talk about?
    Fuckin' jewelries and Bentley's and Hublot's
    And fuckin' art that niggas ain't got on their fuckin' walls
    And fuckin' mansions niggas ain't got
    Niggas can't even pay the IRS, let alone their fuckin' staff, nigga
    You gotta tell the truth, man
    The truth'll set you free, son
    The truth will set you free Writer/s: Billy Preston, Christopher Wallace, Ethram Lopez, Jean Louhsdod, Karim Kharbouch, Sean Combs, Steven Jordan
