Celebrate, grab a drink and put a blunt in the sky
Worldwide, nigga it's 1999
Shit out of control, sign of the times 
I ain't had this much fun since '79
I was only eight then, hadn't been to the pen
Just a young nigga on the front of a swing  Playing football up in Powly High
Too young to ride but it's still Eastside
 Homicides didn't happen much, niggas wasn't rapping much
It's 99 nigga, shit, I know you strapping up
Hell motherfucking yeah, nigga wanna see the end
So next year we can do it all again 
Same dogg channel, same dogg time
Only the strong will survive in 99
So much drama and delusion, my conclusion is confusing  Dripping on my memories, twisted off my music  Trying to make my people do things, oh yeah we do's it, we do's it
Here's my number baby girl don't you lose it
It's smoky in this motherfucker while we cruising 
And East-side niggas is the shadiest (shadiest)
But them West-side niggas is the craziest (craziest)
 Summertime on the grind, baby let me shine, let me shine 
Roll with this shit, I'm cold with this shit in my prime  Nigga done time and I never dropped a motherfucking dime
Be smart, fresh start is all you need
 First thing first, cause, stop smoking cess weed
You are what you smoke, nigga stop hating 
That's why you broke and that's why we celebrating 
But life's so hard on a G, that's what they all say
But somehow someway, better days ahead, Freddy's dead
And Betty said Eddie's a fed
 Sweaty in bed with a nine to his head
And he fucking with this hood-rat that he met up in dance  Betty getting mad cause Eddie wanna share
But look at how you living for a minute then compare 
I love confetti, I always stay ready 
Keep some killers by my side and some riders by the telli 
I'm ready to do now, who now, you now
 Eddie wasn't ready when they drew that, booyow 
Two down, with just one gun
My nigga, and who said killin wasn't no fun
I sit alone in the zone with a face of stone 
Live the life of Al Capone or Don Coroleone  Tragically casualties and fatalities 
And all kinds of funny ass niggas coming after me
My grand pappy once sat me on his lap and he said
 Sonny get your money 'fore you end up dead
I never really understood what he said
 Until my motherfucking dogg took a slug in his head
Cold way nigga gotta learn his lesson 
Slow down and go down, shit you know now

Be smart, fresh start is all you need
 First things first cuz, stop smokin cess weed
You are what you smoke, my nigga stop hating 
That's why you broke and that's why we celebrating 
But life's so hard on a G, that's what they all say
But somehow someway, you got to make a better way

(Somehow someway)
You got to make a better way
(You got to make a better way)
You got to make a better way
(You got to make a better way)
You got to make a better way
(You got to make a better way)
You got to make a better way
(Yeah, better days ahead)
 Better days ahead 
(Better days ahead)
 Better days ahead 

That's real.
I feel your pain nigga.
I used to be just like you nigga.
 Before I got off in this rap shit.
Shit, nigga did anything to get a dollar.
You know, but one thing I never did do.
I ain't never beg a nigga for nothing or ask a nigga for nothing.
I went out and got my own ya feel me?
So from me to you, man to man.
 Better days ahead my nigga.
Shit, keep the faith and get your hustle on.
 Cause I'm a get mine regardless.
 Nigga whether I'm rapping or on the streets.
I gotta have it.
