Yo, we are no superstars
Who wanna be large and forget who we are
Don't judge us by bank accounts and big cars
No matter how bright we shine we're far from bein' stars

'Cuz stars fall and disintegrate before they hit the
Asphalt, they incinerate 'cuz we came
Not to destroy the law but to fulfill
For those who appreciate those with skills

And fresh windmills and graf that kills
What is a DJ without the scratch to build?
Without the elements, it's all irrelevant
Niggas love to freestyle but hate to fellowship

Yeah, taste the city's agenda, most of you outta town niggas
Get caught up and turn bitter, the city of bullshitters
Where hopes are blown, not even money for the phone
Now tell me what's the solution, how to get back home?

Yo, don't get caught up in glamor and glitz and camera tricks
The Land of the Dead, before you come examine your set
Where drama collects and women use special effects
Where amateur stunts can make a nigga damage your fronts

Uh, the California Sunkist with a twist of limelight
Some set trip on the Sunset Strip
Believe the Hide Boulevard nice, the glamorous life
Many searchin' for the fame but can't afford the price

She would turn you out if you wasn't prepared, Hollywood
She would tell you the things that you wanted to hear, Hollywood
She would blur your vision when it once was clear
This chick is full of tricks so approach with fear, 'cuz

We are no superstars
Who wanna be large and forget who we are
Don't judge us by bank accounts and big cars
No matter how bright we shine we're far from bein' stars

You say you love L.A., you say the weather is great
Plenty sun in your face, you like the cars with bass
You like the way we paper chase and the women that shake
In the land of earthquakes and high crime rates

A lot of people are fake, this is Hollywood
We shape the minds of kids in every hood
We make your past situation look good
The nights filled with Shugs and I wish you would

You can dance with Alvin Haley and Les Miserables
In this century city, you can walk on the stars
Sex, money, and murder, yeah it's all 4 to 5
'Cuz fame and passerby with the name immortalized

On the avenue of stars, many names are called
On the boulevard, known for leavin' permanent scars
Many dreams get robbed, real movie macabre
Young heartthrobs get young heart sobs, 'cuz

{"Good evening, good evening, ladies and gentlemen
Welcome to Hollywood, California"}

The city of angel's wings represents people's hopes and dreams
And the evil that men do that live life close to kings
And boast supreme, fancy cars, coats, and cream
Material things provoke more folks to scheme

Whether you paid your cost, Cali green made your call
The smog covers the city like a table cloth
Is it fame at fault? Entertainers labeled soft
The place where people come to lose their train of thought

Despite the claims of what L.A. is and what it ain't
The picture the city paints that over exaggerates
Within the circus, if you're fillin' this service purpose
Some feel it ain't worth it, the city that's got you nervous

And make you injure and get up out of here nigga
'Cuz L.A. never considered for those that need baby sitters
This is the hot bed for singles and newlyweds
Some lookin' for better gigs or fiendin' to make it big

It's the only place where stars are born
And we are the only ones that can't be worn out
By any place regardless of the cost
'Cuz brothers with big dreams, sometimes they get lost 'cuz

We are no superstars
Who wanna be large and forget who we are
Don't judge us by bank accounts and big cars
No matter how bright we shine we're far from bein' stars

'Cuz stars fall, and disintegrate before they hit the
Asphalt, they incinerate 'cuz we came
Not to destroy the law but to fulfill
For those who appreciate those with skills

And, and
What is a DJ without the
Without the elements, it's all irrelevant
I represent the real from the beginning to the end of it
