You might wanna say it
Testing
Ooh, ya got to understand

What ya gotta
Speak the truth for real
You might want to say
You got to understand

We trying to tell you the deal from our perspective
The J5 collective will wreck 'cuz you
You got to understand" keep it together and try

You might want to say but you you got to understand
We're more than meets the third eye, words fly
Reppin' from the bird's eye view

I ain't hating, I just heard better
Up the ante on the game and apply the pressure
Understand I was a fan
Before I was a member of your favorite rap band
Understand that I'm still a fan

And you can keep playing after the fact
Related to the game and came after crack
'Cuz every nigga I know is out ta get a plaque
So why you wanna go and do that, huh?

I don't know man, 'cuz we see fiends who dream cream
Reppin' the west through special effects and green screens
And it seems you need to be the one to flash that cannon
Or sign the autographs till the last cat's standing

Brother pass that action and your trashin' is real
Your only way of coming up is probably inking a deal
While you're thinking the skills, some are thinking the mills
In a never-ending quest ta get the house on the hill
And that's real

What ya gotta
Speak the truth for real
You might want to say
You got to understand

We trying to tell you the deal from our perspective
The J5 collective will wreck 'cuz you
You got to understand" keep it together and try

You might want to say, but you you got to understand
We're more than meets the third eye, words fly
Reppin' from the bird's eye view

I need some understanding in this world between me and my girl
She want the diamonds and the pearls to be a part of my world
Twenty four-sev but love don't pay the rent
So love me when I'm home and cherish the moment

Uh-huh, 'cuz some of you women are men's mirrors
I know some women who dodge balls like Ben Stiller
Please understand, it's not to offend or seem bitter
But every queen need a king wit her

Ms. Thing I don't know
But ever I leave you ready to go
My Momma told me about how it flow
But I didn't wanna listen but she told me so

Now if it ever came to the bank account
Who'd ya pack ya things and get up and bounce
These the type of things that I be thinking about
To all my other fellas you got to understand

What ya gotta
Speak the truth for real
You might want to say
You got to understand

We trying to tell you the deal from our perspective
The J5 collective will wreck 'cuz you
You got to understand keep it together and try

You might want to say but you you got to understand
We're more than meets the third eye, words fly
Reppin' from the bird's eye view

And all the times I tried ta do what this wanna God do?
It's cuz I see the world from the Artist eye view
You live life the next part is you die, too
And there's no one on this Earth it doesn't apply to

Now that's true, 'cuz every single day I live
I'm obligated just ta say it like it T-I is
And I ain't gon' talk about no cat whose decision is poor
Trust me, man, my hand is just as dirty as yours

Either they like you or they hype you, it's a cycle
Choices that we make in the vital
'Cuz in the blink of an eye it can all go awry
And the next man will quickly take your title

Yeah, between me and myself and all of these things
Understanding is a theme when we doing our thing
From the job to my queen and chasing my dream
The whole world needs a little bit of understanding

What ya gotta
Speak the truth for real
You might want to say
You got to understand

We trying to tell you the deal from our perspective
The J5 collective will wreck 'cuz you
You got to understand keep it together and try

You might want to say but you you got to understand
We're more than meets the third eye, words fly
Reppin' from the bird's eye view
