I think this Obie Trice, Obie Trice, Obie Trice
(I'd like to re-introduce myself, ha, ha)
Obie Trice, it is Obie Trice, Obie Trice
(If you don't know by now)
Obie Trice, Obie
(It's Obie Trice, man)

I came from nothing solo, straight outta the dumpster hobo
Made up my monster, I was cultivatingly slanging that cocoa
Hated the po-po, locally known as abominable snow-o
Later the pig fo' rated the home where I made the dough grow

So on and so fo', the story of us urban negros
Created as equals we wouldn't have to be so eager to mistreat you
We as a people heated in evenings doing these evils
Gotta eat you, be cool, got a kid to feed that'll reach you

Or did it see thru? Or do I just speak thru the EQ?
Just to say I got a hot sequel when niggaz on the block gotta eat
Gotta cop, gotta cot when they caught by the cops
Young Tupac's, laid in the box or they age in a cell blocks

Fade away, brick walls, steel gates, can't wait for the day
To be free that's why I'm

Obie Trice, Obie Trice, Obie Trice
(Seen it, I done ate it, I done shit it)
Obie Trice, it is Obie Trice, Obie Trice
(Slept it, lived it, now I spit it)
Obie Trice, Obie
(Shady)

Working that house off an no-doze, got an ounce to roll on
Trying to get rid of the pounds, I gotta whip the bounce
I gotta put that chrome on same old song
Young nigga that's trying to get some where I come from

Funds, need 'em in abundance, whole bunch
Only way a city boy function

In conjunction with selling this substance
Chips stay up, fuck it, glucks keep coming, take another pie out the oven
I'ma be hugging these corners till these corners corner me
But currently, I'm calculating this currency, urgency

Gotta earn a G, uphearnestly, up early when the birds'll sing
It's an emergency, never did occur to me that the first and the third'll be
Such a thirst for me, life almost took a turn for the worst for me
Took to see
I finally had a purpose on Earth's surface the seed that was birthing me

Obie gotta do a little soul searching and Obie myself personally
And to think all Em had to hear is one verse from me to confirm
And unblur my dreams, best believe since burst on the scene
I'ma be here certainly with no uncertainties
Yes, indeed, I'ma get this cheese and that's why he's

Obie Trice, Obie Trice, Obie Trice
(That's why I'm, that's what made me)
Obie Trice, it's Obie Trice, Obie Trice
Obie Trice, Obie Trice, Obie Trice
(That's why I'm)

Obie Trice, Obie Trice, Obie Trice
(Young black man in America)
Obie Trice, Obie Trice, Obie Trice
(Get up and get yours nigga)
Obie Trice, Obie Trice, Obie Trice
(I know you struggling man, I been there, I see you)

Obie Trice, Obie Trice, Obie Trice
(Get up and get yours nigga)
Obie Trice, Obie Trice, Obie Trice
(Ain't no looking back now)
Obie Trice, Obie Trice, Obie Trice
