Lyrics
Straight gangsta mack
Who's the mack? is it some brother in a big hat
Thinking he can get any ***** with a good rap?
Rolling in a ****ed up Lincoln
Leaning to the side So it looks like he's sinking
Into that leopard interior
This ***** thinks every girl's inferior
To his tongue get a dumb ***** sprung
As she's selling more butt
Don't even get a cut of the money
His name is Sonny
And he know the play
And hope to god that he don't find a runaway
That's looking to become a star
He'll have your *** in and out of every car
With every on and Rick, sucking every john's ****
Come short of the money, get your *** kicked
You don't like it but you still call him hunk
Last night the ***** put yo' *** in the trunk
You want to leave but Sonny started talking fast
And it make you want to go and sell more ***
He's getting rich, you his ***** and it's like that
Now ask yourself
Who's the mack?

It is that fool that want to pump the gas
Give you a sad story and you give him cash?
He starts macking and macking and you sucking
Quick to say I'm down on my luck
And you give a dollar or a quarter and he's on his way
Then you see his sorry *** the next day
Are you the one getting played like a sucker?
Or do you say, "Get a job, ************"?
Every day, the story gets better
He's wearing dirty pants and a funky-assed sweater
He claims he wants to get something to eat
But every day you find yourself getting beat
He gets your money and you run across the street don't look both ways
'cause he's in a daze
And almost get his *** hit for the crack
Now ask yourself
Who's the mack?

Is it that ***** in that club asking
Have you ever been in a hot tub?
I know the game so I watch it unfold
When I see the boy pinned to your earlobe
He's talking **** and you crack a smile
When he tell you that he can go buck wild
For a girl like you and make it feel good
You know it's drama but it sound real good
He started dragging and hopefully he can start tagging
The ***** so he can keep bragging
He say, "I'm 'a leave baby, can you go with me?"
The ***** so he can keep bragging
You want to do it but you feeling like a H-O-E
You grab his hand, you leave and it's over
'Cause the ***** ain't nothing but a rover
Ya knew the game and you still ended up on your back
Now ask yourself
Who's the Mack?
Macking is the game and everybody's playing
And as long as you believe what they saying
Consider the a M.A.C.K. and with no delay
They are gonna get all the play
But when it comes to me, save the drama for your momma
It's Ice Cube and you know that I'm a
Mack in my own right
When it comes to rhyme and rap
'cause all I do is kick facts
Unlike Iceberg Slimm
And all of them be claimin' be P.I.M.P.
No, I'm not going out that way
I'm just a straight up N I double G A
Next time you get over on a fool
And you did the **** like real smooth
Thank Ice Cube for giving up the facts
And ask yourself
Who's the Mack?
Straight gangsta Mack
