Konvict
Stand up
Salute
Devon Stephens
Up front is in the building
It's the Konvict album
Yeah
Y'all done ****ed up now
I got money now, *****
I got enough money to free all the stars

He ain't lyin'
If you sellin', we ain't buyin'
If you got it on ya block
You best believe we supplyin'
From a key to a half a pound
A quarter to a dime
Tryin' to own a piece of Brooklyn
Like my ***** John Klein
Hey
Ya know me; I'm known to rock wit' it
Roll through your spot wit' it
Post up block wit' it
Hey, ya know me; I'm on the block with it
Non-stop wit' it
Violate and get popped wit' it
Hey
So I suggest ya keep steppin' on me
'Cause you will rarely find me
Without my weapon on me
Got the whole Konvict squad bettin' on me
And now the dots around the world
Are now connectin' on me

[Chorus]
Hey now
A bunch of gangstas strapped
So make a wish now
When they come wavin' them gats
Ya know to lay down
And give 'em all ya got
'Cause it's a shake down
Hey now
A bunch of gangstas strapped
So make a wish now
When they come wavin' them gats
Ya know to lay down
And give 'em all ya got
'Cause it's a shake down
Oh, oh, oh
'Cause it's a shake down
Oh, oh, oh
'Cause it's a shake down
Oh, oh, oh
'Cause it's a shake down
Do I make myself clear?
Oh, oh, oh, hey, hey, hey

A fleet of European cars in my driveway
Ferarri
My shorty ridin' shotgun
Bumpin' Sadie
Toes hangin' out the window
Loadin' up my army
You know I keep a bad ***** breathin' on me
Also known to have no business with no beefin' on me
And won't hesitate to **** it
When them people on me
So guess what
No exceptions to ya neither, homey
Ya know I got that African connection
Locked up in a facility correction
I'm a star, style changed
Hangin' like blow
Black royals in the front
We in the place now

[Chorus]

Now I'm a show ya how to break this down
He'll show ya how to shake this down
First ***** to create this sound
Can't believe it took a convict to shake this town
Dippin' European linen with the v-net
Diamond studded VVS
No less
Kunta Kinte bracelet
Lit up the whole set
My *****, we on deck
Believe it's no sweat
Need street credibility who you go get
I give you that credibility for the right check
Keep your future on the shelf
Quiet where it's best kept
Don't want them upfront shooters
Bringin' red light

[Chorus]
