[Chorus]
O, O, O, O, O
I think this
Obie Trice
Obie Trice
Obie Trice
Obie Trice
Obie Trice
Obie Trice
Obie Trice
O, O, O, O

I'd like to reintroduce myself, ha ha
If you don't know by now. It's Obie Trice man

I came from nothing solo, straight outta the dumpster hobo
Made up my monster, I was cultivatingly slanging that cocoa
Hated the po po, locally known as abominable snow-o
Later the pig fo' rated the home where I made the dough grow
So on and so fo', the story of us urban negros
Created as equals we wouldn't have to be so eager to mistreat you
We as a people heated in evenings doing these evils
Gotta eat you, be cool, got a kid to feed that'll reach you
Or did it see through? Or do I just speak through the EQ just to say I got a hot sequel
When *****z on the block gotta eat, gotta cop, gotta cot when they caught by the cops
Young Tupac's, laid in the box or they age in a cell blocks, fade away
Brick walls, steel gates, can't wait for the day to be free, that's why I'm

[Chorus]

Seen it, I done ate it, I done **** it
Slept it, lived it, now I spit it
Shady

Working that house off an no-doze, got an ounce to roll on
Trying to get rid of the pounds, I gotta whip the bounce, I gotta put that chrome on
Same old song, young ***** that's trying to get some where I come from
Funds, need 'em in abundance, whole bunch, only way a city boy function
In conjunction with selling this substance
Chips stay up, **** it, glucks keep coming, take another pie out the oven
I'ma be hugging these corners till these corners corner me
But currently, I'm calculating this currency, urgency
Gotta earn a G, uphearnestly, up early when the birds'll sing
It's an emergency, never did occur to me, that the first and the third'll be
Such a thirst for me, life almost took a turn for the worst for me took to see
I finally had a purpose on Earth's surface the seed that was birthing me
[Obie] Gotta do a little soul searching and [Obie] myself personally
And to think all Em had to hear is one verse from me
To confirm and unblur my dreams
Best believe since burst on the scene, I'm a be here certainly
With no uncertainties, yes indeed, I'm a get this cheese and that's why he's

[Chorus]

That's why I'm
That's what made me
Ha ha
That's why I'm
Young black man in America
Get up and get yours *****
I know you struggling man, I been there
I see you
Get up and get yours *****
Ain't no looking back now
