Fake thug, no love, you get the slug, CB4 Gusto
Your luck low, I didn't know til I was drunk though
You freak n****z played out, get f***ed and ate out
Prostitute turned b****, I got the gauge out

96 ways I made out, Montana way
The Good-F-E-L-L-A, verbal AK spray
Dipped attache, jumped out the Range, empty out the ashtray
A gla** of 'ze make a man Ca**ius Clay

Red dot plots, murder schemes, thirty-two shotguns
Regulate wit my Dunn's, 17 rocks gleam from one ring
Yo let me let why'all n****z know one thing
There's one life, one love, so there can only be one King
