Lyrics
[Intro/Chorus:]
4 pound, hit you up with rounds
Leave a man down
Wrappin on a rat
The Infamous nuff said (Enough said m_________er)
and when it happens
Off guard watch reaction (Watch his reaction)
Look him in his eyes, c___ back, commence clappin
and it could happen to you

[Verse 1: Havoc]
It's old love, I could see the eyes up above
watchin, waitin for me to slip
lose grip, opposition got me on their list
I get freshed by Jase
he threw all the fakes
I want my cake and eat it too
Wash it down with brews
Spent a half a milli on gats
You know the drilli
Smack em all buster silly, got dough on the philly
and store-w______, it's the NY City
Hazardous, dangerous game of da
sticky m_________er keepin undercover
Stick-n-move, Gators to Timb shoes
Jeans to tuxedos
Second motion, son, I be do
down below ya best
Sunnin, runnin outta overpower
freeze the counter, ???? and powder
Distant, Gotti on some flip s___
Resco his cool piece, too grimy now ya death row
to test smokes, hazardous the most
Slow you up like dust
c__e white you get crushed
You modernise
Infamous come through like the homicide
Hit guys, rip Dons, get mines, the thin line

[Chorus]
[Verse 2: Prodigy]
Infamous who rap s___, power moves and connect wit
empire, bless all my sons wit
bank accounts
many mansions down south
f___ ABT, got protected
War strategies perfected
Bent all day, Alize party
Golf, f___ par 3, pimp, pusher, playa, couldn't be me
Hennessey raps, fully loaded with gats
Now how you like that
Time lapse
you lose, shoulda been strapped!
Be on your back like a new born
n____s is corn-born, wit
real cats who do this all day long
On and on til the break of dawn, it don't stop
s___ is hot like PJ's infested with cops
Jakes on a n____ a__, ninja break em like glass
Interrogated, they won't last
Would it make you laugh or make you cry?
On this side it's do-or-die
Ya get dead plus sun-dried, you're small fry
We on time with this, mace blindin s___
Gold mindin it, extended 9 clips
Trife life got my mind keyed up
pull out the Tek-nology and team-o
with my cats and ??? blast
Direct splats to your jawbone
I lift that head up, homes, bent they hos and putos
Injured kid, Mobb-tician is the laws of life
Ain't it interestin, listen
It could happen to you

[Bridge:]
Now what would you think? (I don't know)
What would you do? (I don't know)
Can't beat ya gat, can't find ya crew
Far away from home in a land not new
So boom, outta place and I sue ya crew
Son, yo, they steppin in you
And it could happen to you

[Outro: Havoc]
KnowhutI'msayin? Said word to m____, son!
Feels like a dream (word!)
It's like I just woke up, knowI'msayin?
I woke up in a like-like an ill sweat, son
Word up, this s___ had me shook, son!
I don't know, man!
f___in around with them other cats

4 pound, get hit with rounds
Leave a man down
Wrappin on a rat
The Infamous nuff said
(Enough m_________in said!)
