These days, you gotta be strapped
I'm already knowin' ain't nobody got my back
These days, you gotta be down
Who said it was easy claimin' Dogg Pound

These days, you gotta be strapped
I'm already knowin' ain't nobody got my back
These days, you gotta be down
Who said it was easy claimin' Dogg Pound

I believe I got good skills
We been makin' music since we were kids
That's all I wanna do for life
Keepin' it real until the day I die

Obstacles get in my way
Continue to mash and don't forget to pray
I keep my hand on my steel
Because I love my life and I always will

Whatever people say to me
I take it in stride, I'm thinkin', 'Negro Please'
If you really don't know me
Then you best pack up, I suggest strongly

Yes sir, this is DPG, 'til the day I D-I-E
For my L-I-F and E
No matter where I look that's all I see
And I know

These days, you gotta be strapped
I'm already knowin' ain't nobody got my back
These days, you gotta be down
Who said it was easy claimin' Dogg Pound

These days, you gotta be strapped
I'm already knowin' ain't nobody got my back
These days, you gotta be down
Who said it was easy claimin' Dogg Pound

Many women cling to me
Is it because they see me on BET
Everybody knows my name
All the police think I'm serving cane

Jealous niggas call us out
But I don't worry long as I hear their mouths
If ever they decide to kill
You better be prepared because I know I will

One thing I can guarantee
You don't wanna be standin' next to me
Before my final curtain call
I fore say, save anyone below

So if we bump hits in the streets
Or even at some party
You niggas really can't see me
My request is that you stop trying
'Fore I let go

These days, you gotta be strapped
I'm already knowin' ain't nobody got my back
These days, you gotta be down
Who said it was easy claimin' Dogg Pound

These days, you gotta be strapped
I'm already knowin' ain't nobody got my back
These days, you gotta be down
Who said it was easy claimin' Dogg Pound

Everyday, the 4, 5 stays erect for whoever
I bustin', takin' now, bowin' down never
Gotta watch my back for these coppers
As well as these niggas that I kick it with
They stick you faster than these bitches will

Since I'm pimpin', everybody wants my riches
And I can't keep a dime from buyin' weed, actin' every time
I smoke constantly, you can't flinch me
From commitin' the murders so I chill and puff the herb

Who gots my back? Nobody
Little John Gotti's blamin' niggas down at the homies party
All be goin' crazy, I guess we are bein' who we are
And they say the nigga's gotta be a star

I gots to get mine and if I blast then it's my destiny
If I die then it was meant to be intentionally
Worryin', stressin', I'm guessin' no confession
When the murder take place, it was self protection

These days, you gotta be strapped
I'm already knowin' ain't nobody got my back
These days, you gotta be down
Who said it was easy claimin' Dogg Pound

These days, you gotta be strapped
I'm already knowin' ain't nobody got my back
These days, you gotta be down
Who said it was easy claimin' Dogg Pound

These days, you gotta be strapped
I'm already knowin' ain't nobody got my back
These days, you gotta be down
Who said it was easy claimin' Dogg Pound

These days, you gotta be strapped
I'm already knowin' ain't nobody got my back
These days, you gotta be down
Who said it was easy claimin' Dogg Pound

These days, you gotta be strapped
I'm already knowin' ain't nobody got my back
These days, you gotta be down
