He started this gangsta shit.
(remember when it was just ireverent fun?)
we dont 'just say no', we to busy saying YEAH!
to drinking straight out the eight bottle
do i look like a motherfucking role model?
to a kid looking up to me
life aint nothing but bitches and money.
He killed a verse on "Burn Hollywood Burn",
off of an undisputedly classic PE album.
(way before his contract with disney)
rolling through hollywood late at night
red and blue lights, what a common sight
pulled to the curb, getting played like a sucker
dont fight the power, shoot the motherfucker
He colaborated with Chuck D again,
this time on his classic solo debut.
you wanna free africa? i stare at ya
cause we aint got it too good in america
i can't fuck with 'em overseas
my home boy died over keys
of cocaine it was pain and simple
the 9mm went *bang* to the temple
He dropped "Death Certificate",
considered by many a classic.
... and he never stopped entertaining,
no matter how cliche or over the top.
(watch the 'go to church' video... on mute)
