Why'all cats know we always play to win

Hang your punk *** from a limb, they'll have to cut you down
While you rap clone phonies only hurtin' the game
Bout to expose you hoes, this **** is too twisted
When they get robbed like a herb, that's what they get for frontin'
I'm in the top ten, one of the best of all time
You're mediocre son, you're barely average kid
From the hood to the corporate, give up your goods and forfeit
More chips, watch us rake 'em in

Real rough rhymes
Players get your pay up
I'm hot so they're feelin' me, you're not so you're killin' me
While you spread rumors, I'ma dead you junior
Family tradition when I'm randomly spittin'
I never won awards, no Grammys and things

But I survived all the thugged out, grimey capers
Don't take me for granted because I'm calm and ****
Controllin' this grip with one hand holdin' my ****
See why'all cats know we always play to win
Why'all cats know we always play to win
Why'all cats know we always play to win

I'm still goin' strong in this game, and you should learn to
And I ain't the one to be, startin' the violence
For years I ran with some of the greatest men

Real, rough rhymes
Why'all cats know we always play to win
