Yeah whassup G?
Why whassup I'm on my way to the airport now
Somethin' about a gun
Please approach the bench."
Yo they got me handcuffed I'm down in central booking
But I'm too fly, I'ma change this scenario
Chumps are leary though, they see me as a threat
Five-oh makes me want to flip, Larry Davis style
It's OK though, cause from grey skies comes blue
And this I certify we all should be alerted by
the D.A. says they got me on a felony
The streets are war, that's what brothers carry weapons for
The next thing you know, they got me on the radio
Of course I know, that I'm a role model
Right now I gotta think about me **** the industry
What's the story, what happened when I went to L.A.?
Nothin' happened, mind your business yo step

Don't want to see us come up, don't want to see us makin' G's
Let's make moves no discussion
Peace to my man Hass, and Orange Man payin the cost
into the system, supposed to rehabilitate
Read, study lessons and build your inner power
For example, I know this rich Nigerian
He asked me why do all us brothers be gettin' trapped
Whether you got naps, braids waves or no hair
And you can swagger like you rule this; Josey Wales
Give up the savage ways, be effective soldiers
There's war in the streets, prepared men know best
They're always makin' trouble yo, against the righteous
And as I sit feelin' the pain in my wrist
Or at least I gotta try, or part of me will die
So I inhale, exhale as I ponder
I've been there, I've seen how they make us fall victim
And so I rip facts to dope tracks I caress
