Uh huh (Y'KNOW?)
..
ARF!
Uhh..

Take it for what it's worth my birth was a blessing
Sent to live and die on earth as a lesson
We each have a star all we have to do is find it
Once you do everyone who sees it will be blinded (WHAT?)

They'll tell you that you're bright and say you have a future
When you turn your back same cats'll try to shoot ya
Niggaz ain't shit I can live on both sides of the fence
Forget what you do, when you talk, see what you really meant (aight?)

That's what I thought, them niggaz was bluffin (uh)
They talk all day but say, nothin (uh)
It gets so dark (WHAT?) haze so intense
Since this first rain it's like it's rained ever since (WHAT?)

Never got paid for a rhyme but I flow (whoo)
Never got a plate on time but I grow (whoo)
Live your life, STAY on the line but I go (UHH)
Went from doin crime to bein kind cause I know

[Chorus: x2]
I'm goin' live forever, I'm never goin' die
Only thing I fear is that I'm never goin' fly
Carry my weight but I'm never gon' cry
Shit I tell y'all niggers straight cause I'm never gon' lie

What is about who I am that makes me unforgettable (HMM)
What it is about what I've done that makes it so incredible (uhh)
"More money, more problems" -- well the fame was worse (uh-huh)
I reached out for love and what came back was thirst (WHAT?)

Blessed with the curse (uh) niggaz don't hear me
Niggaz don't hear me, Y'ALL NIGGAZ, don't hear me (uh)
What'd I just say? "Nigga g'head" - you see that?
You gots to FEEL ME to catch what I'm sayin, BELIEVE THAT (UHH!)

But leave that, alone (WHAT?)
We goin' make a nigga want to be at, your home (WHAT?)
Oh you kinda quiet with the heat at, your dome (UHH!)
If the dog got he's gonna bring back a bone

'Cause we got the chrome (C'MON!)
This is what I live for, or die for
I'm the nigga with the high score, you try for
What you niggaz want to lie for? It changes nothin
I'm true for cats, yet some strangers bluffin

[Chorus]

Now if I take what he gave me and I, use it right (uh-huh)
In other words if I listen and, use the light (uh-huh)
Then what I say will remain here, after I'm gone
Still here, on the strength of a song, I live on (HMM)

No second-guessin on what I stood for, I was good for
stoppin niggaz from killin each other in the hood war (UHH)
Comin through showin love, throwin up (UHH)
Them cats not throwin love, you know whassup (WHAT?)

Dark Man baby, that's my name
and I got's to be the realest nigga (UHH) up in this game
'Cause ain't no shame, they don't make em like, this no more
Real to the core, big heart but built for war

I stand for what I believe in
Even if what I believe in stops me from breathin
Relatives grievin, but I ain't went nowhere
Listen to the song (C'MON) I'm right there

[Chorus]
