(Intro)
One day youre gonna understand

Aye
Can I holla at ya?
Let me holla at ya

(Verse)
Special, never forget the day I met you
We was destined for each other like a son to his mother
Or a sister and brother, man this bond is deep
We go a couple years and dont even speak but know its love though
Could never let them dirty your name, I got the up most respect for ya
Came back home and had the check for you
Word round town is you like down
Some older nigga snatched you up, gave you a right now
Damn, and could it be?
She like if you was me you wouldnt wait for me
Living sassy, wouldnt ask to break from me
Big city slicker nigga on a higher track
Bigger now but when she send a letter always write her back
And time revealed, she feels that she settled too soon
While she see me go for miles and she admire that
We speak about time as if we could just buy it back
If only it was that simple, damn I miss you

(Hook)
Can I holla at you?
Can I holla at you?
Let me holla at you
Yea I know its been a while but aint no better time than now
Can I holla at you?
Can I holla at you?
Let me holla at you
Yea I know its been a while but

(Verse)
You betrayed me
The day you played my mama you played me
Cant believe I let you in my heart nigga
I shouldve followed my instincts, a stranger in my house
Only 5 years old but since danger in my house
I was too young to strap you but damned if I didnt want to
Im blowing up fast and I hope these words haunt you
13 years, knew you more than my real pops
Put me on the pack and all the rappers that killed cops
Who wouldve thought that you would leave my mama high and dry?
Last words to a bitch nigga, why you lie?
Feelin bitter so these words might seem jumpy
But when you left I watched that lady crumble
I know by now you probably a old man
But still I feel I wont be satisfied until we throw hands for all the ass whooping
Heard you tryna talk to that punk, dont call
You aint shit and Im scared it rubbed of on me

(Hook)
I holla at you
I holla at you
Let me holla at you
Yea I know its been a while but aint no better time than now
Can I holla at you?
Can I holla at you?
Let me holla at you
Yea I know its been a while but

(Verse)
I heard you on that shit, I hope it aint true
Was hard to holla at you last time I came through
Could barely recognize you, nah nigga this aint you
Cuz you aint lookin like that nigga that I once knew
And plus you act like you dont know me
We was homies, now you call me by my rap name
See me do my thing so you expectin me to act strange
Aint hollin but you on my mind nigga
I wont forget the good times, nigga
White Ts in the club, jeans baggy as fuck
Sometimes I look back on my life,
That was the happiest stuff
We had potential to be monumental via mentality
You know that old killa beat? Kill mentality
I look at where you at now, its a real fatality
Cuz where you supposed to be is on top close to me
Chasin hoes like the old days but now we overseas
Dog congratulations on the scene
Yo my nigga!

(Hook)
Can I holla at you?
Can I holla at you?
Let me holla at you
Yea I know its been a while but aint no better time than now
Can I holla at you?
Can I holla at you?
Let me holla at you
Yea I know its been a while but
