  • Yeah,
    Hey, hey, hey,
    Aight Toomp man, this what the folks been waiting on I guess,
    That's right
    Let's give it to 'em baby
    Grand Hustle nigga,
    Aye man they been waiting on this shit since "What You Know" huh?
    It's the king bitch
    Alright my nigga, the wait is over nigga
    Hey, hey

    One for the money, two for the show dog,
    Three for the niggas hatin' on the low, y'all
    Know a picture worth a million words I'm a show y'all
    Death before dishonor, a family before all
    Without the braids I'm da closest thing to O-Dog
    Minus the testimony,
    Say it ain't so, homie!
    Shorty like that, don't he?
    World hopped off my jock, I got him right back on it
    Step back brush myself off,
    Pick business back up, right where I lef' off,
    I can show my dope, that other guy just talk,
    Hey, where I live just as big as yo projects, dog
    Better check my swagga
    How I walk, how I talk, how I stack that cheddar,
    What I drive, how I dress, nigga looks just better,
    Hundred stacks on that nigga I'm just, better
    Somebody better tell 'em man
    They swag owe my swag everything
    Very plain to see you study me awful hard
    To the point that my swag need a bodyguard
    I'd like to think to thank you cause uh y'all oughta be
    Havin' y'all swags sending mines an apology
    A lot of little me's, I see, got beef
    But what's the possibility, stop, see, you not me
    Hardly work for hella beams,
    Step up to the guillotine
    Get decapitated,
    Don't see how half you rappas made it
    Say good, bye to the fame and the fortune
    Say la vi
    What the game need with you, nigga? They got me
    I ride through the city so clean,
    Seat really low, auto-mo
    Billies, so pretty, but I'm illy tho
    No comparison
    Ain't a nigga mo' thorough than this gangsta American
    Flow, dope or da heroin,
    King like Evalyn,
    Champagne mayne
    So deranged and belligerent
    Ranked up there with Benjamin
    Who? Andre 3K, B.I.G., Jay-Z, U-G-K, Scarface, Machiavelli the great,
    Wayne, Common, Kanye and
    So fuck what you say
    You welcome to ask who you made,
    Bet they say as of today,
    I'm back on top like a toupee
    All objections overruled
    It's overdue both high,
    And sober too, I'm so high
    Up over you,
    Same guy you see in the streets it's as fly as here in the booth,
    So don't be surprised when you meet me to see that I'm really the truth,
    So uncool
    Nigga, who want proof?
    Must agree that shit idea,
    Can't no one undo,
    I stay on my one two
    Nigga who want to?
    Turn a brunch into a brawl,
    Do what you goin' do,
    I'm wired
    Hot as a bitch and still,
    Cool as a fridge and dear,
    This year I'm on a mission dear,
    Think that was something? Listen here
