this song goes out
to all the people out there, that be running their mouth
and they don't know what the hell they saying
shut up!

now that i've got my voice back, let me start off by saying that
i appreciate the fans around the world that have my back
and i just wanna thank god upstairs for keeping his hands on me
and keeping all the doctors focused through my surgery.
now, there's a couple of things, i gotta get off my chest
some serious issues that i must address
so, well let's just get right through it
people say that i was gone
say there was no way this time he's gonna overcome
and even before, the doctors was done, and i could awake a tsunami of rumors had come to wipe my career away!
after twenty two years of a blessed career
they had me lying in my hospital bed crying mad tears, uhu
but just as i had many people hatin' me, had so many people loving me
and not forget the hood around the world covering me
to everybody that be calling me
well, telling me what they be saying about me
well, bringing me all this negative shit
yall the ones i ain't fuckin with
it's time for me to evaluate, oh, oh
The people that i let up in my space
can i get a witness for all of this, when people all up in your business

chorus:
tell 'em, shut up, tell 'em shut up
tell 'em shut up, tell 'em shut up
i'm talking to you!
tell 'em shut up, tell 'em shut up
tell 'em all shut up!
tell 'em all shut up!
tell 'em! i'm talking to you!

he's washed up, he's lost it!
he ain't got it no more
well i'm here to tell you today boy, you haters are so slow!
and it saddens me to know
some of yal want me to go away
when it's time for me to go
my god is gonna orchestrate it all
until then i'm gonna accept the stones
praying, just try to get along
but sometimes is so hard for me to be strong
see, i got kids and i'm trying to love 'em, so many things i'm trying juggle
but i never thought this music would become my struggle, oh!

The news said i lost my house, my own people put me down
and my friends no longer around, no!
but you see deep underneath the surface
i feel something is working in my behalf
a victory is near! Yea
see, my future ain't my past
it's not the end of the hour glass, who said it would not last
Fans sick they ass!

chorus:
tell, shut up, tell 'em shut up
tell 'em shut up, tell 'em shut up
i'm talking to you!
tell 'em shut up, tell 'em shut up
tell 'em all shut up!
tell 'em all shut up!
tell 'em! i'm talking to you!

now seriously, after all these hits and melodies,
and memories you compare me to someone else! OMG!
no offence to the other artists,
but come one dawg, let's be honest, how many babies have been made of me? OMG!
seriously?
you gonna act like that?
sitting there like it ain't no truth to that?
looking at me like it ain't talking stats OMG!
every boy, every girl, every child around the world
from the 90s up until the day they was made all free

chorus:
shut up, shut up, shut up
i'm talking to you!
shut up, shut up, shut up
all my life, oh!
i'm talking to you!...
just shut up, shut up, shut up!
