I used to get feels on a *****
To stop me from that HIV ****
Playin the villian
Biggie Smalls is the illest
"What you talkin bout Willis?"
is here to excite and
*****es I like em brainless
I want the ****in Fortune like the Wheel
Don't tempt me [T-H-O-D Man]

Come to spread the butter lyrics over hominy grit
Comin where you rest at, surrender
Lookin cold booty like your ***** in December
From Method all you gettin is a can of ***-whippin
Actin as if it can't happen
Yo I'm from Shaolin, Island, and ain't afraid to bust somethin
I got a six-shooter and a horse named Trigger
Kickin down your god damn door [and it goes a lil somethin like this]
**** the world, don't ask me for ****
Honies shake your hips, ya don't stop

Meth-tical, puttin *****z back in I.C.U.
I got connections, I'll get that *** stuck like glue, huh
Yo I gets rugged as a **********in carpet get
I spark and they cells get warm
Baby accept it, utmost respect it
I spit on your grave then I grab my Charles Dickens
Welcome to my center
Cold as the pole in the winter
And when my Mac unloads
Ready to die, why I act that way?
The ****** took the back way
I used to do stick-up
Excuse me, flows just grow through me
Cliffs to avalanches
Deep like the mind of Farrakhan

I make it hot [***** won't even stand next to you]
tree times in the head

And everything you get ya gotta work hard for it
And *****z pack the clips, keep on
**** the world, don't ask me for ****
Honies shake your hips, ya don't stop
