I'm gettin' my kicks dirty, I'm blowin' my mid-30's
Niggaz they want me buried but, I'm in no hurry
Bullets flyin' in flurries, my gat don't work
But I still need one to carry

And I bring the bereavement, when you hit the cement
Police picked me up to talk but I wasn't worried
I remembered the song that was sang from the birdie
'Cause when he whistled he was pushin' up that milk thistle, get it?

These stupid niggaz they ain't playin' for keeps
These niggaz playin' for cheaps, they disobeyin' the streets
Never fear the inevitable, death will come
And when your breath goes numb, you lookin' up to the sheets

I seen it comin' and I'm watchin' the drama grow
And stressin' enough to break the needle and thread where mama sewin'
I'm slow flowin', move back and forth like a boa
Still movin' hoes in 2's to the boat, like I was Noah

Get up, 'cause nigga we'll lay you down
You don't wanna be six feet underground
So get up, we don't play around
You gotta watch your back when you outta town

Get up, when you hear the sound
The Compton nigga's comin' back for the crown
So get up, when you feel the pound
And your rest is short, we'll lay you down

Black Air Force Ones, guns under the Louis Vuitton bomber
It ain't like I need armor
I give a nigga one warning, 'cause if I get you shot
Then I'm Tupac and that's bad karma

I came to get my dip on, find me a round the way girl
In Gucci slip ons, I know what you thinkin'
This ain't another diss song, why they bleep me and Quik songs
But Snoop and Nate Dogg get they crip on

The West been gone, I'm from Compton
I know firsthand Quik been holdin' it down for 10 strong
And Dre got 20 in, all you got to brag about
Is a couple, bitches and spinnin' rims

You wouldn't have a deal if it wasn't no Big
I did 106 and Park with no vid
How he get inside MTV with no spins
No Em, no Dre, I'm the hottest since Jay

Get up, 'cause nigga we'll lay you down
You don't wanna be six feet underground
So get up, we don't play around
You gotta watch your back when you outta town

Get up, when you hear the sound
The Compton nigga's comin' back for the crown
So get up, when you feel the pound
And your rest is short, we'll lay you down

AMG nigga, Dirty West Nile
Any time of the day, you might hear
Fightin' up at the club, fightin' out on the beach
Here's a word to the wise, bring heat

From the Bay to L.A., the S.D.
Niggaz slingin' kilos of yay, pounds of weed
You niggaz need to catch up, 'cause I'm bound to speed
Pick a car, any car, 24's to D's

And if you like what you see, baby let me know
I let you play with the D back up at the mo'
I need a freak like you hoes be needin' rent money
It's 7 days in the week and man they all sunny

80 degrees, tall palm trees
Much too many dimes and too many G's
Everybody know about the B's and C's
Shit cost a chip, nigga bring your cheese and

Get up, 'cause nigga we'll lay you down
You don't wanna be six feet underground
So get up, we don't play around
You gotta watch your back when you outta town

Get up, when you hear the sound
The Compton nigga's comin' back for the crown
So get up, when you feel the pound
And your rest is short, we'll lay you down
