Play for keeps
Yo, I got twenty-four bars to heal these scars
I'll introduce myself, check it out, ladies and gentlemen
Varsity letterman, 'E' on my coat
I'm from a real big city called "watch where you go"
Born in LA, it's hard to get star struck
Born in LA, plus deal where I stay
My crews thick, all sharp, take a pick
We learn both from the best on both coasts
Problem here, problem there, got through 'em
The mic's cocked back, a full clip
This is it, we're up and running, torch is lit
I save my crew's name for last, injections lethal

Play for keeps
y'all can't sleep
And y'all can't sleep now
We play for keeps now

There's people you don't
You gotta keep close
There's people you know
There's people involved that shouldn't be

Stay ahead of the time, stay behind the beat
Everyday they keep chasing me down with little clues
You didn't know friends make better music than strangers
Wherever I fall, I make the category look good
My whole life ahead of me, I was 'lone in my town
The farther away I went the closer to home I started to get
Some love and hate ****, I don't ask, it just happens
Before the show find me at the bar drinkin' Bicardi
Here to keep the party up, I rap caffeine
It's LA's finest, it's Dilated Peoples
And y'all can't sleep now
We play for keeps now

Play for keeps
y'all can't sleep
There's people you know
There's people involved that shouldn't be

There's people you don't
You gotta keep close
There's people you know
There's people involved that shouldn't be

There's people you don't
You gotta keep close
