  • Bustin' out the bando
    A nigga jewelry real metal like a can opener
    I went from rags to riches to a feature with Tip
    I went from Smart Car to a bitch with some smart lips
    And the F&N make my hip limp
    I'm goin' fishin' with these little bitty shrimp dips
    And my bank roll got a big dip
    She gon' bring it on a big ship
    Quite trill, no Quik Trip
    I got drugs in the alley, no tip there
    She just wanna have a good day
    Smoke way more weed than a guy in L.A
    I want them birds 'til next May
    Never let em fly away
    What!? I heard ay
    Listen what my nigga Tip say

    If it ain't about the money
    Don't be blowin' me up, nigga I ain't gettin' up
    If it ain't about the money
    Ain't no use in you ringin' my line, stop wastin' my time
    If it ain't about the money
    Nah I can't even hear what you say, I ain't finna do shit
    If it ain't about the money
    Bitch, you can miss me with it, bitch nigga miss me with it

    I'm packin' 11, I'm packin' 11
    I ride in a gator, my shoes are Guiseppe
    I'm slime like the reverend, I shoot at the reverend
    Pants out the grocery store, they stuck with lettuce
    She try make the extras, I told on these bitches
    When it's bout time to pay I'ma bail on these bitches

    Ay what you think we in the neighborhood for?
    Standin' at the corner store with a pocket full of dough
    I'll be damned if a nigga wipe a hood hoe
    Learned that from UGK back in "Pocket Full of Stones"
    Put your money down I could book a hard four
    You playin' with it, I'ma send 'em through your car door
    But while I flood the shit sick got prob' oh
    I'm doin' it for black and yellow, free Hardo
    The head honcho, nigga no Tonto, nigga
    I'm quick to put some bricks in a Bronco, nigga
    Niggas talk shit, well I don't respond to no nigga
    No murder, no dough, no convo

    If it ain't about the money
    Don't be blowin' me up, nigga I ain't gettin' up
    If it ain't about the money
    Ain't no use in you ringin' my line, stop wastin' my time
    If it ain't about the money
    Nah I can't even hear what you say, I ain't finna do shit
    If it ain't about the money
    Bitch, you can miss me with it, bitch nigga miss me with it

    I'm packin' 11, I'm packin' 11
    I ride in a gator, my shoes are Guiseppe
    I'm slime like the reverend, I shoot at the reverend
    Pants out the grocery store, they stuck with lettuce
    She try make the extras, I told on these bitches
    When it's bout time to pay I'ma bail on these bitches

    Aye, what you think we in the neighborhood for?
    Standin in the trap, slangin good blow
    Maybach used to slang that crack
    Buy a stolen car while he bang that AK
    If you ever took a loss better bring that back
    Catcha' witcha' betcha' heat will blow your brains bout that
    Know you better be, on your best behavior when addressing me
    Because, bye-gones, we don't let em be
    Niggas disrespect me, I'm a catch a felony
    For real, if you listen I can get you paid
    But not interested in shit you say

    If it ain't about the money
    Don't be blowin' me up, nigga I ain't gettin' up
    If it ain't about the money
    Ain't no use in you ringin' my line, stop wastin' my time
    If it ain't about the money
    Nah I can't even hear what you say, I ain't finna do shit
    If it ain't about the money
    Bitch, you can miss me with it, bitch nigga miss me with it

    I'm packin' 11, I'm packin' 11
    I ride in a gator, my shoes are Guiseppe
    I'm slime like the reverend, I shoot at the reverend
    Pants out the grocery store, they stuck with lettuce
    She try make the extras, I told on these bitches
    When it's bout time to pay I'ma bail on these bitches

    Ay, what you think we in the neighborhood for?
    Standin' at the corner store with a pocket full of dough
    I'll be damned if a nigga wife a hood ho
    Learned that from UGK back in "Pocket Full of Stones" nigga Writer/s: CLIFFORD J. HARRIS, JEFFREY WILLIAMS, LONDON TYLER HOLMES
