INTRO
Sai oh no it's 98 y'all and we got sum new shit what we say? Yeeess thank the 
world in this mother fucker that's right

VERSE 1
Fuck what you heard baby Im dj quick, whether on tv or in the streets im 
still the shit I went from drinking eight ball to making demos to drinking 
hennesy and chivas regal in the back of the limo getting my issue in life you 
cant hate that and when I tell you about yourself nigga you cant take that 
cuz yall be cross faded if you don't understand you gotta side knock out one 
but you be flossing over here to see whats in my hand yeah but that's cool 
too I guess my money on the double that's what I do hitting brown bubbles and 
avoiding trouble hoes to choose with nothing to lose and a million mother 
fuckers wanna be in my shoes but you don't understand beyond the parties each 
year I've been broke my whole career breaking bread with my peers for the 96 
impala the new double lex before the 20000 mile mark I gave it to sis I can 
never bust a niece you heard my nephew aint got it being a jump man cortes 
yeah im coming out em pocket put my homies in the hood  up on it when im 
around cuz theres a difference between being a thug and being down, now

CHORUS
Bang bang boogie to bang to bang boogie to the boogie bang boogie to bang 
fuck what you saying nigga youse a gansta (no im not) nigga youse a gangsta 
(no im not) nigga youse a gansta  (2x)

VERSE 2
Just because I kick it with killas don't mean that I do it my occupation is a 
musician and im staying true to it I went from being a ridah to being a 
provider while I was straddling the benz trying not to hit the divider just a 
impressional human being trying to do right every now and then I get my 
manner tested in fight like I used to have a beef with this cat named eight 
and his homies approached me at the club at ray what was I to do im on stage 
and im doing my thang and this niggas out in the crowd trying to hoo bang 
giving it up for his homies and set tripping too but he wasn't from roadie 6 
these more like triaged me I wondered whats his problem what hes trying to 
say is his business personal or just fuck dj quik day I approached him like a 
man and not like a nut he turned around and put his drink down and straight 
out pulled up in a dark club punches is flying all around and even though it 
was me and him the rumors were around they said I killed somebody now how 
that sound how could I smoke someone to death thats bigger than me and I'm 
just 155 pounds tell em

CHORUS

VERSE 3
See some don't realize about the power of lyrics cuz when you rap about death 
you talking to spirits you see you can say the things that can help us all 
ball but you can say things that making bad for us all fixing the problem the 
only way is come to the source don't be a trojan horse help us change the 
course everybody knows that its bad in the hood so check what you rapping 
about if it aint to the good I did my part a long time ago I changed my views 
aint no gang banging slanging just hanging with trues give it up to my 
creator and that you could quote the mother fuckers still see me as a 
scapegoat yeah like that night with biggie how they cost you your spot yeah 
like 400 other people yeah I heard some shots broke away with the crowd 
nervous obviously and the mother fuckers blamed it on me what the heeeeell

CHORUS
