Motherfuckers say that I'm foolish
I only talk about jewels
(Bling bling)
Do you fools listen to music
Or do you just skim through it?
See I'm influenced by the ghetto you ruined
That same dude you gave nothin'
I made somethin' doin'

What I do through and through and
I give you the news with a twist
It's just his ghetto point of view
The renegade you been afraid
I penetrate pop culture
Bring 'em a lot closer to the block
Where they pop toasters and they live
With they moms got dropped roasters
From botched robberies niggaz crotched over

Mommy's knocked up 'cause she wasn't watched over
Knocked down by some clown
When child support knocked, no he's not around
Now how that sound to ya?
Jot it down I bring it through the ghetto
Without ridin' 'round hidin' down duckin' strays
From frustrated youths stuck in they ways
Just read a magazine that fucked up my day

How you rate music that thugs with
Nothin' relate to it?
I help them see they way through it, not you
Can't step in my pants can't walk in my shoes
Bet everything you worth
You lose your tie and your shirt

Since I'm in a position to talk to these kids
And they listen I ain't no politician
But I'll kick it with 'em a minute
'Cause see they call me a menace
And if the shoe fits I'll wear it
But if it don't then y'all
Will swallow the truth grin and bear it
Now who's these king of these
Rude ludicrous lucrative lyrics
Who could inherit the title
Put the youth in hysterics

Usin' his music to steer it
Sharin' his views and his merits
But there's a huge interference
They're sayin' you shouldn't hear it
Maybe it's hatred I spew
Maybe it's food for the spirit
Maybe it's beautiful music
I made for you to just cherish
But I'm debated disputed hated
And viewed in America
As a motherfuckin' drug addict
Like you didn't experiment?

Now now, that's when you start to stare at
Who's in the mirror
And see yourself as a kid again
And you get embarrased
And I got nothin' to do
But make you look stupid as parents
You fuckin' do-gooders too bad
You couldn't do good at marriage
(Ha ha)

And do you have any clue
What I had to do to get here?
I don't think you do so stay tuned and
Keep your ears glued to the stereo
'Cause here we go
He's jigga joint jigga chk jigga
And I'm the sinister
Mr. Kiss My Ass it's just the

Never been afraid
To say what's on my mind
At any given time of day
'Cause I'm a renegade
Never been afraid
To talk about anything

Never been afraid

I had to hustle my back to the wall
Ashy knuckles pockets filled with a lot of lint
Not a cent gotta vent
Lot of innocent of lives lost on the Project Bench
Whatchu hollerin'?
Gotta pay rent bring dollars in
By the Bodega iron under my coat feelin' braver
Doo rag wrappin' my waves up
Pockets full of hope
Do not step to me I'm awkward

I box leftier often
My pops left me an orphan
My momma wasn't home
Could not stress to me I wasn't grown
'Specially on nights I brought somethin' home
To quiet the stomach rumblings
My demeanor thirty years my senior
My childhood didn't mean much
Only raisin' green up

Raisin' my fingers to critics
Raisin' my head to the sky
Big I did it multi before I die
(Nigga)
No lie, just know
I chose my own fate
I drove by the fork in the road
And went straight

See I'm a poet to some
A regular modern day Shakespeare
Jesus Christ the King of these
Latter day saints here
To shatter the picture in which of that
As they paint me as a monger of hate
And Satan a scatter-brained atheist
But that ain't the case see it's a matter of taste
We as a people decide if Shady's as bad
As they say he is

Or is he the latter a gateway to escape?
Media scapegoat, they can be mad at today
See it's easy as cake, simple as whistlin' dixie
While I'm wavin' the pistol at sixty christians against me
Go to war with the Mormons
Take a bath with the Catholics In Holy water
No wonder they try to hold me under longer

I'm a motherfuckin' spiteful delightful eyeful
The new ice cube
Motherfuckers hate to like you
What did I do?
(Huh?)
I'm just a kid from the gutter
Makin' this butter off these bloodsuckers
'Cause I'm a muh'fuckin'
