Yo G they can't stop me from rapping can they?
I spit it through the wire man
I'll probably risk it all right now
Y'all don't really understand how I feel right now man
Chi-Town what's going on man
I drink a Boost for breakfast, and Ensure for dizzert
That right there could drive a sane man bizzerk
How do you console my mom or give her life support
And just imagine how my girl feel
She was with me before the deal she been trying to be mine
I'm use to trying to reline
Trying to be a millionaire
In the same hospital where Biggie Smalls died
But I ain't Jamaican man
I swear this right here is history in the making man
I really apologize how I sound right now man
They got my mouth wired shut for like I don't know the doctor said for like six weeks
I had reconstructive surgery on my jaw
I couldn't believe it
This is what I gotta say yo

But he wasn't talking bout coke and birds it was more like spoken word
And he explained the story about how blacks came from glory
Good dude, Bad night, Right place, Wrong time
If you could feel how my face felt you would know how Mase felt
I swear to God drive two on the sue
My dogs couldn't tell if I
It's been an accident like GEICO
I must gotta angel
Unbreakable, would you thought they called me Mr. Glass
Toys are Us where I used to spend that Christmas cash
Swear I should be locked up for stupid **** that I did
Make music that's fire, spit my soul through the wire
Know what I'm saying
I said dog don't you think didn't you realize I'll never make it on the plane now
Can't be serious man
