[Featuring Dr. Dre, Prince Ital]

Intro: Dr. Dre

I know you're bobbin your head, cause I can see yah (repeat 4X)

You can't see me, hah

Back up in that *** once again

With some of Dat ***** Daz ****

Beatin up on your ear drums with some of that G Funk

Some of that gangsta funk

Some of that ghetto funk

Call it what you want, just don't forget the G

Got the **********in Dogg Pound in the house

Verse One: Dogg Pound

Now tell me what's poppin in your head my brother

What you want to do end up dead ************

I don't know why we got to kill each other

Cause on the streets it's do or die ************


Now as a child I was raised in the church

Now what ever possessed me to do the **** that I do to put you in the


I gives a **** about a ***** on the street

I'm runnin ninety-fo' and I done ran ninety-three, don't like no


For the murders I committed in my Omni Fo' convertable

And not a soul saw who did it

As I lean to the side in my Omni G-Ride

On a mission, fo' deep, Dogg Pound do or die


Now if you see me mobbin down the street what would you think (not)

Realizing that I'm surviving off instinct

What makes my mind click to perfect timing

For me to twist **** switchin bullshit the **** up like The Shining

Cause I'm in my own zone, alone look down

You think you saw but death is all round like a ghost town

Perhaps you, know I axe you

Fool if I have to, can you comprehend or adapt to

Chorus: Prince Ital

Respect to the Deathrow Inmates

Deathrow Inmates lawd dem never hesitate

To bust a gun shot, in a i-diot face

Dis is Dogg Pound and your life goes to waste

Fraid, Dogg Pound carry no grace

Lifetime in static, put you inna your place

Dogg Pound be killin a ***** mentality

Mess with Dogg Pound and you be dead each way


Verse Two: Dogg Pound


Now I'm Dat ***** Daz, everywhere I roll I'm set to blast

The way to success is elevating too fast

Every corner that I turn, there's money to burn

With no concern count the amount there's more to be earned

Set-Trip, the word I hear every ***** spit

Sixty percent's trippin forty percent's bullshittin

Industy's shady, my safety's in jeapordy

Control the mind with mental telepathy *****

Shady as ****, Kurupt can see it in your eyes

Anticipatin for the real to come from the disguise

The Pound, we roll thick like one-time

And I could **** your ***** after I bust just one rhyme

All we do is smoke weed and get blitzed

And kick that **********in gangsta ****

(Say what say what say what say what say what?)

Kick that **********in gangsta ****


Well I see myself on top, by the age of twenty-two

or will I drop, a fallen star that has been forgotten not

In the past, I mainly hustled for the cash

surprised to see that ***** rise up on that ***

Anybody killa, do or die if I have to

On deck, twenty-four seven and blastin if I have to

I live my life I done swore to courtin trigger long

Who would stop the movement why I journied so far

From the danger that lurks, from the one that's out doin dirt

Step to modify this and vanish away from this Earth

Beyond the heartbreaks and heartaches, rest in peace

Riders died death is unexplainable when you die

Outro: Prince Ital

We don't got to stoop low

We don't got to stoop low

We don't got to stoop to your level

But when they see we coming lawd

Now when they see we coming lawd

Now when they see we coming lawd they tremble

Cause we a rebel, terror from a well fractured gun

And you know we keep it real to make your life invisible

So don't ****, you betta be respectable
