You do your first bid and dirt to get your name known
Now you`re no longer just a face in the crowd
And movin up with your hustle like you planned it
Always got one eye open, for the stick-up kids postin
Ladies flock to your jock like it`s golden
but you ain`t got no time, to be chasin felines
People treat you like you`re ghetto royalty
You paid your dues, refuse to lose in this scenario

You`ve got a harem of *****es and killer *****z that`s hype
You **** what you`re eatin so you don`t peep the proceedings
and that`s the reason why your cash and stash gets stolen
Still another confrontation that you couldn`t avoid
Back in the days you was a forty and a blunt man
New York City ain`t the place to be frontin
Your so-called fam ran a scam, and you got shook
See reps grow bigga in the life of a crook
Years ago, we were new jacks to this scene
Know what I mean? They tried to stifle us
Fed up so we headed on a serious mission
Two businessmen, Guru and Prim`, we enterprised
The dedicated ministers of underground sound
No matter how bizarre and different you think you are
Premier in the rear with the beats and cuts
Take us out the game *****? How you figure?
