lyrics

Yo it's therapy, most the rappers I know got problems
why you think we frowning when we putting out these albums
you would think we selling units way up in the hundred thousands
most of them I know a show away from public housing
back in Richard Allen, similar to Ram Squad
see me, believe me, it ain't easy, it's damn hard
then why you do it? I don't really know the answer to it
heard some kid recite my lyrics, saw some chick dancing to it
I don't know, guess it's sort of borderline comical
laugh until you hurt your abdominal, this ain't optional
it's mandatory, shorties jockin' for the hell of it
watching, waiting for some jaw dropping developments
a little good news but I'm relying on embellishment
wonder if they know that I'm lying when I tell'em shit
I'm hittin' in New York, they love me down New Orleans
popped in, did a intimate acoustic performance
impromptu, we seduced them with the chorus
then we had the whores waiting for us on the tour bus
they yelled 'encore' and cried out for more of us
how can I ignore this, I live for this sort of rush


Say why they keep testin' me, stressin' me
tryna figure out the recipe, I learned this out of necessity
and some of y'all respect me, others will think less of me
and question me, dude I do this out of necessity
why they keep testin' me, stressin' me
tryna figure out the recipe, I learned this out of necessity
and some of y'all respect me, others will think less of me
and question me, dude I do this out of necessity


We must be crazy
maybe bumped our head or mama dropped us as babies
raised by a pack of wolves infected with rabies
I don't know, all I know is I been doing it since the 80's
and still love it like the ladies
love Cool James, we up in school bangin' Wu-Tang
pants hang, the dean said stop walking on the back of your jeans
I act strange and so fly at manipulating Black slang
that you can't deny my critical acclaim
so worthy, flow dirty as work gloves
girls that used to front, now I'm giving them church hugs
so distant with it, took a compliment and dissed them with it
young, black, and educated, how you still so ignorant with it?
dude it's easy when you're 'round the wrong crew
and when you live in shit you bound to get some on you
heard you're on your grind, they claim they're on they jawn too
but can't match your drive, they're rack and pinion is gone too
can't see the dude, tryna house me, nigga ain't even pre-approved
they hate you like MOVE or Mumia Abu-Jamal
had to warn her, hard to make a chick believe
leave 'fore he start beating your head like a itchy weave
I tell'em back up, you're breathing my air
OG legend status, there's a reason I'm rare, yeah
see it's more than rap young fella
talkin' bout you're the closing act
fool you couldn't close a umbrella


Say why they keep testin' me, stressin' me
tryna figure out the recipe, I learned this out of necessity
and some of y'all respect me, others will think less of me
and question me, dude I do this out of necessity
why they keep testin' me, stressin' me
tryna figure out the recipe, I learned this out of necessity
and some of y'all respect me, others will think less of me
and question me, dude I do this out of necessity
