This is the final boarding call for flight 1259 
Departing from Los Angeles  final destination to St. Louis 
Thank you 

Damn G  the spot's gettin' hot 
So how the fuck am I supposed to make a knot? 
Police looking at niggas through a microscope 
In L.A. everybody and they momma sell dope 
They trying to stop it 
So what the fuck can I do to make a profit? 
Catch a flight to St. Louis 
That's cool, cause nobody knew us 
We stepped off the plane 
Four gang bangers, professional crack slangers 
Rented a car at wholesale 
Drove to the ghetto, and checked in a motel 
Unpacked and I grab the three-eighty 
Cause where we stayin', niggas look shady 
But they can't fade South Central 
Cause bustin' a cap is fundamental 
Checkin' out every block close 
Seein' which one will clock the most 
Yeah this is the one no doubt 
Bust a you Bone, and let's clear these niggaz out 

Hey hey man, whats up nigga? 
Yo, well this Lench Mob nigga! 

Now clearin' 'em out meant casualties 
Still had the L.A. mentality 
Bust a cap, and out of there in a hurry 
Wouldn't you know, a driveby in Missouri 
Them fools got popped 
Took their corner next day, set up shop 
And it's better than slangin' in the Valley 
Triple the profit makin' more than I did in Cali 
Breakin' off rocks like Barney Rubble 
Cause them mark-ass niggas don't want trouble 
And we ain't on edge when we do work 
Police don't recognize the khakis and the sweatshirts 
Getting bitches and they can't stand a 
Nineteen-ninety-one Tony Montana 
Now the shit's like a war 
Of gang violence, where it was never seen before 
Punks whirl when the gat bust 
Four jheri curl niggas kickin' up dust 
And some of them are even lookin' up to us 
Wearing our colors and talkin' that gang fuss 
Giving up much love 
Dyin' for a street, that they ain't even heard of 
But other motherfuckers want to stand strong 
So you know the phrase, once again it's on 

[TV announcer] 
Top of the news tonight, gangs from South Central 
Los Angeles which are known for their driveby shootings 
Have migrated into East St. Louis 
Leaving three dead and two others injured 
No arrests have been made 
Police say this is a nationwide trend 
With similar incidents occurring in Texas, Michigan, and Oklahoma 
(female voice repeating in background: 
"If it can happen here, it can happen anywhere") 

Boom, my homie got shot he's a goner black 
St. Louis niggas want they corner back 
Shooting in snowy weather 
It's illegal business, niggas still can't stick together 
Fuckin' police got the four-one-one 
That L.A. ain't all, surf and sun 
But we ain't thinkin', bout the boys 
Feudin', like the Hatfields and McCoys 
Now the shit's gettin' tricky 
Cause now they lookin' for the colors and the khakis 
Damn, the spot's gettin' hot from the battle 
About to pack up and start slangin' in Seattle 
But the NARC's, raid about six in the morning 
Try to catch a nigga while he's yawnin' 
Put his glock to my chest as I paused 
Went to jail in my motherfuckin' drawers 
Tryin' to give me, fifty-seven years 
Face'll be full of those tattooed tears 
It's the same old story and the same old nigga stuck 
And the public defender ain't givin' a fuck 
The fool must be sparkin' 
Talkin' about a double life plea bargain 
You got to deal with the Crips and Bloods by hand G 
Plus the Black Guerilla family 
And the white pride don't like Northside 
And it's a riot if any more niggas die 
No parole or probation 
Now this is a young man's summer vacation 
No chance for rehabilitation 
Cause look at the motherfuckin' years that I'm facin'
I'ma end it like this cause you know what's up 
My life is fucked
