This thing called rhymin’ is no different than coal minin’;
We both on assignment to unearth the diamond.
Consider me the entity within the industry without a history of spitting the epitome of stupidity.
Peace before everything, God before anything,
Love before anything, real before everything,
Home before any place, shoot before anything,
Style and state radiate, Love Power slay the hate.

Breathe out…weed smoke retrace the skyline.

8-year olds gettin’ found with 9 mill’s.
It’s 10 P.M., where your seeds at? What’s the deal?

But I disregarded detour signs,
And did not stop til you was mine.

Careful what you wish for, cause you just might get it in heaps.
Try to give it back, He be like, ‘Nah, that’s yours to keep.’
I seen her on the ave, spotted her more than once.
Ass so fat that you could see it from the front…
Why did one straw break the camel’s back?
Here’s the secret:
The million other straws underneath it.
