Testin testin
It's game orienfested, size six-ex vested
K-Cizee.. JoJo... that boy Too Sheezee, Todd Shaw
and Earl Stevens, a.k.a. Charlie Hustle
Hey Todd, you on? (Am I on?)

The foundation was laid several years ago
I built a whole empire in your stereo
Got a four leaf clover representin the Bay
Oakland, Frisco, Vallejo, and EPA
We keep the **** together, let's keep it that way
From Sacramento all the way to San Jose
We in a new era, for ten years you made hits
so what's up E-Feezi? (We still the ****) Beotch!

How you think I got this pot belly, overnight?
Shet a nig-ga was hongry, I had an appetite
Just like a lie to my people that's caught up in the struggle
************s tryin to bubble, *****z tired of slangin
Barney Rubble, gettin in trouble and ****in up
Parole got me makin my kids piss in a cup
It's cold, that's why I got a few bucks, I put up
from sellin greens, investing in some vending machines
From the ground up

We started, with nothing
From nothing, we made something
Nobody really gave a damn about us
From the bottom, we started
We started, with nothing
From nothing, we made something
Nobody really gave a damn about us
From the ground on up!

From the ground up, here go some details
This verse right here was made, said strictly for the females
Don't y'all know it's time for y'all to blow up, like Napalm
Instead of sellin Tupperware, and Avon
Get your business license, go on and put the peas in the pot
Tell your baby to get your baby daddy to buy you a nail shop
or a beauty saloon, since he come to be the biggest tycoon
with methamphetamine laughs and heroin balloons

Six po-lice pulled me over laid a ***** on the ground
Searched my car real good I know you know what they found
I had the trunk, full of that junk
X-Rated lyrics, laced with the funk
No doubt, I was just about to flood the streets
Big boxes full of tapes with them dopefiend beats
Two white boy groupies, mad as hell
Black men makin mail, couldn't take him to jail

We started, with nothing
From nothing, we made something
Nobody really gave a damn about us
From the bottom, we started
We started, with nothing
From nothing, we made something
Nobody really gave a damn about us
From the ground on up!

I spent sixteen hundred makin Born To Mack
Used my *****z gold ropes and his Cadillac
I was broke to start with, didn't give a ****
Couldn't tell me Short Dawg wasn't comin up
When ************s roll by bumpin your stuff
It makes you feel good, like when you bust a nut
Now I'm a millionaire, and can't get enough
Forty tell em how it is (way too tough Short Dawg)

When I first started rappin ************s would cap!
"That ***** fake he sound like Woody Pecker on crack (ha ha ha HA ha)"
*****z would laugh and say I rap too fast way back then
But now I be catchin all kind of ************s
tryin to sneak my little old style in
And that's a compliment, cause I ain't trippin on the money
(what about the money what about the money)
Ask me, sheeit, I think there's enough money up in this *****
for all of us, we can Sasquatch pimp the system without a doubt
All we gotta be is bout our paper route

We started, with nothing
From nothing, we made something
Nobody really gave a damn about us
From the bottom, we started
We started, with nothing
From nothing, we made something
Nobody really gave a damn about us
From the ground on up!

That's real, Too Sheezee, Ant Banks, Forty Fonzarelli
K-Ci and my ***** JoJo we all come from the ground up
BEAOOOTTCH!

Right from the bottom to the top
From the ground up we never stop
Right from the bottom to the top
We never stop
Right from the bottom to the top
From the ground up we never stop
Right from the bottom to the top
We never stop

Never stop, no we will never stop baby
We will never stop, we will, we will never stop
We will never stop!
From the ground up, from the ground up
from the ground up, nooo
From the grouuuuund up, from the ground up
From the bottom to the top baby
Baby baby baby baby...
