This is a public service announcement
Fellow Americans, it is with the utmost pride and sincerity
Of history in the makin' durin' our generation
Allow me to re-introduce myself
I used to move snowflakes by the O Z
C.E.O. of the ROC, Hov'
I be the, music biz number one supplier
Got the hottest chick in the game wearin' my chain
That's right Hov', oh, not D.O.C.
I check Cheddar like a food inspector
So that's what I'ma do, take you back to the dude
Let me tell you dudes what I do to protect this
This ain't a movie dog
Now before I finish, let me just say
Did not come here to impress you
And I don't care what you think about me, but just remember
Twenty years from now, you're gonna be able to say

I done came through the block in everything that's fly
I never claimed to have wings on
Get your umbrellas out because, that's when I brainstorm
I just rolled the dice, tryin' to get some change
And I do it twice, ain't no sense in me
And I could blame my environment but
Hope you don't think, you'se as hardy
If you do then, how would you explain?

Check out my hat yo, peep the way I wear it
No matter where you go, you are what you are player
Man, you was who you was 'fore you got here
Either love me, or leave me alone
