I was voted most likely to have a psychiatric evaluation
Let's start the process of elimination
This dedication is for niggaz with the 'Green Buddha'
The bandula, six-shooter to your suit coolers

Now how this feel? Cold black steel up in your grill
This hollow point lead gon' be your last meal
Say your prayers, say your graces
Pieces of your face is found in a hundred different places

Huh, so what we lookin' like?
We tryin' to see some hoes to fuck tonight
And you just tryin' to see the afterlife

Make a decision before we have a head-on collision
Makin' me spend the rest of my life in prison
See I can only play the cards I was given

Multiplication, division whatever you got to break mines off
Like the U.S. government did to Microsoft
Like Xzibit in some pussy with the lights turned off
It's like

I'm just livin' to fulfill my dreams
I'm just tryin' to have the best of things
None of y'all can't take shit from me
Life's a bitch she ain't fuckin' for free

So I'ma ride til the wheels fall off
While all the rest get weak and go soft
You're petite style, can get you beat down
My heat's loud, have you huggin' on the street now

Niggaz keep askin' me how does it feel?
How does what feel? Not havin' to scrape for a meal
Not bein' locked down to a fucked up deal
The biggest man in Los Angeles is not Shaquille

We had to reinvent the wheel, draft new blueprints
Made a whole album, spent half what you spent
Then sent the rest to my people to invest wit it
Custom fitted, if you want it nigga, come and get it

And I suggest you bring a million niggaz runnin' wit it
Split it, feel it, hit it it's hot, look
I ain't gon' stop til everybody's shot
Muammar Khadaf's the dot, X mark the spot

With an infrared to your head, left for dead
Fuck the feds, flee the country then grow some dreads
I suggest you keep your distance, for instance, the same distance
It takes to get to the next solar system, motherfucker

I'm just livin' to fulfill my dreams
I'm just tryin' to have the best of things
None of y'all can't take shit from me
Life's a bitch she ain't fuckin' for free

So I'ma ride til the wheels fall off
While all the rest get weak and go soft
You're petite style, can get you beat down
My heat's loud, have you huggin' on the street now

Strike one, when a nigga talkin' shit with his hands
Strike two, gettin' caught
In the wrong place with your pants down
Strike three, tryin' to fuck with the D-O-double-G
DRE, or any of my Alkaholik family

Huh, Xzibit turn your vital signs to a straight line
Never seen a dog bite and bark at the same time
Restless, rugged, never relaxed
Permanently owe you motherfuckers backs like tax

Baseball bats and bricks upside of your head
Homey still gettin' swoll off water and bread
I got this, retaliation, for any situation I'm facin'
And leave the stage with a standin' ovation, it's like

I'm just livin' to fulfill my dreams
I'm just tryin' to have the best of things
None of y'all can't take shit from me
Life's a bitch she ain't fuckin' for free

So I'ma ride til the wheels fall off
While all the rest get weak and go soft
You're petite style, can get you beat down
My heat's loud, have you huggin' on the street now
