Coolin' in my crib, cold video dubbin'
FBI warnin'? Huh, don't mean nuttin'
They call that shit a crime? Yo, that shit's a joke
Hit record on my dope remote
I heard my phone ringin', I wonder who could it be
It was the E, the V, yes the I L E
He said, "We got static, word, I just got out
Punks tried to move at the club and we shot out

Bullets everywhere" Okay what's the prob?
"Ink got popped, he's dead as a doorknob"
You bullshittin' "I ain't fuckin' around
The posse's rollin' tonight, nigga are you down?"
I grabbed my AK, my 16, and my baby Mac
Strapped on my vest, and threw the 9 in the small of my back
I said, Chill, don't let nobody move without me
Say you know where they are?
He said, "I know where they be"

Let's peel their caps back
Let's peel their caps back

Twelve o'clock midnight, posse was airtight
Twenty-five cars, under the streetlights
Some people talked, while others cried
Ink was a brother, who shouldn't have died
Then the silence broke, Ice what's it gonna be?
38 hard brothers stood and stared at me

There were only two words that I had to say
P A Y, B A C K
The car's loaded with a silence that could rape the dead
Pistols clipped as the chamber's loaded full of lead
Everyone in the crew knew what I said
Would mean by morning, somebody else soon would be dead

Let's peel their caps back

The cars at the corner like a long black snake
Nightprowlin' for a life to take
Ya see down in the ghetto it's an eye for an eye
That's the answer to the question why
In my throat, there's a lump, then I swallow it, I ain't no chump
Face of death, then I cocked my pump
I'm a nigga on the trigger, madder than a pitbull

Just layin' for a reason to pull on you
Any duck motherfucker that gets in my way
I'm insane, and my homeboy's death made me this way
But then we spot him, Evil E shot him
Dead in the face, made sure that he got him
Others ran, but no mercy to the posse's wrath
Automatic Uzi motherfuckin' bloodbath

Let's peel their caps back
Let's peel their caps back
Let's peel their caps back

Then all of a sudden, a bullet came through my eye
My dome exploded and I felt my other brothers die
I drink my blood as I fell like shit into the street
My corpse stunk like a burnt out rotten piece of meat
Ten brothers died in this stupid homicidal binge
'Cuz whenever someone dies, nobody wins
But this drama, you'll never hear a word of
'Cuz all the paper's gonna read is a gang murder
Gang murder
