How much must I repeat?
No time outs, no free throws
No handouts, no pit stops
But the drinks are on us

Talk is nothing, talk is cheap
Power corrupts eventually, damn
What are the choices left for me?
I guess my faith is a quest for me
Man got a crib, it ain't got no lease
But I still get brain, oh it has no teeth
But where I was raised all of the killas was down the street
Better do your research
My swag go hard, my swag go country, watch my theme work
3 course meal, full entree, refills and I want my desert
Now keep them bottles coming by the killer liter
I'm so grand hustle, you ain't even in my league sir
They be out here, gettin' their silenced off, gettin' their leads heard
But a dying breed survives and a dynasty immerse
She call me hippie cause I live without any concern
Yea yea yea, I stay in them trees like the keblers
As a kid I played in the yard, but now I'm astro turfing
Map stories of threesomes, they must just be seeing double
My heart is going cold so I gotta sleep with warmer covers
Somebody tell 'em that this is professional stuntin' and don't attempt it
So when you see them folks, don't forget to warn a brother
Veni, vidi, vici, I came, I saw, I conquered
And they name wasn't in the will
And they jealous of my success cause my shoes cost more than their bill
To some it's like conquering mountains, to me it's like stepping on heels
And the truth can be hard to swallow, the pivenous eyes of the peal
My life, fooling speech or presentation
A fighter in his prime, a legend in the making

We only play for keeps
No refs, no penalties
No cheat codes, no sleep
If you with it then pull up a seat
