Blame me

You *****s know my pyroclastic flow
You *****s know my pyroclastic flow flow
You *****s know my pyroclastic flow it's R-A-W, R-A-W

You looking at the grand wizard, war lord vocal chord so vicious
And I don't have to show riches to pull up pull off with some bad *****es
And it ain't about chivalry
It's about dope lyrics and delivery
It's about my persona ain't nothing like a man that can do what he wanna
Ain't nothing like man on that you knew on the corner
See 'em come up and **** up the owner
See 'em throw up Westside California
***** I'm hot as Phoenix Arizona
I'm Utah I got multiple *****es
It's a new law keep a hold of yo riches
Dumb ***** don't spend it as soon as you get it
And recognize I'm a captain and you a lieutenant

I can say what I want to say ain't nothin to it gangsta rap made me do it
If I call you a ***** ain't nothin to it gangsta rap made me do it
I can act like an animal ain't nothin to it gangsta rap made me do it
If I eat you like a cannibal ain't nothin to it gangsta rap made me do it

I'm raw as a dirty needle
Choke an eagle
Just to feed all my people
Lyrically I'm so lethal
Plant thoughts in they mind just to defeat you
Ice Cube is a saga y'all spit saliva
And I spit lava
I got the fearless flow
Don't get near this ho
If you sacred to go
I keep it gangsta and why should change that
**** you old ************s tryin to change rap
But aren't you the same cat that sat back when they brought cocaine back
I'm tryin to get me a Maybach
How you ************s gonna tell me don't say that
You the ones that we learned it from
I heard ***** back in 1971

So if I act like a pimp ain't nothin to it gangsta rap made me do it
If I call you a nappy headed ho ain't nothin to it gangsta rap made me do it
If I shoot up your college ain't nothin to it gangsta rap made me do it
If I rob you of knowledge ain't nothin to it gangsta rap made me do it

Thank God when I bless the mic
You finally get to hear the **** that you like
A ***** talkin bout real life so you can try to get this **** right
Use your brain not your back use your brain not a gat
It's a party not a jack (for real)
Don't be scared of them people
Walk up in there and show them that you equal (**** them **** them)
Don't be material a ***** grew up on milk and cereal
I never forgot Van Ness and imperial
Look at my life Ice Cube is a miracle
It could be you if you was this lyrical
It could be her if she was this spiritual
'Cause me and Allah go back like cronies
I don't got to be fake cause he is my homie

If I sell a litle crack ain't nothin to it gangsta rap made me do it
If I die in Iraq, ain't nothin to it gangsta rap made me do it
If I take you for granted ain't nothin to it gangsta rap made me do it
If I **** up the planet ain't nothin to it gangsta rap made me do it

You *****s know my pyroclastic flow
You *****s know my pyroclastic flow flow
You *****s know my pyroclastic flow it's R-A-W, R-A-W

Oh yeah and another thing
For all ya *****s that don't do gangsta rap
Don't get on TV talkin about gangsta rap
Cause 9 times at a 10 you don't know the **** you talk about
Talk about that bullshit rap you do
Stay the **** out of mines
