This Life I Lead

2Pac, OutlawzBuy this song

In this motherfuckin' life I lead, shit 
Hella motherfuckin' roadblocks and crooked cops 
We still ride though, what side? Westside 

I want money in large amounts, my garage full of cars that bounce 
Movin' my tapes in major weight 'cause every dollar counts 
Bustas is jealous and half these niggas is punks 
They runnin' off at the mouth 'til I fill it up with my pump 
They jump, my automatic keep 'em wary 
Why you frontin' like you really badass, nigga you scary 
I been knowin' you for years, we was high school peers, in junior high 
I was itchin' to kill, and you was, ready to die 
Why you bullshittin', niggas was dyin' and catchin' cases 
Bustin' my automatics at motherfuckers in foreign places 
Leavin' no trace, they see my face and they buried 
Them bitches die in a hurry, still I ride, I'm never worried 
Mr. Makaveli tell me to ride, and I'ma ride 
Pick my enemies out the crowd, and motherfuckers die 
It's not the way I want to live, my nigga it's how it is 
Homie got into a fight last night, that killed his kids 

In this life I lead, fiend for currency, get high off weed 
Collect G's make my enemies bleed 
When you see me nigga holla my set, and watch 'em ride 
Outlaw motherfuckers 'til we die, in this life I lead 
Fiend for currency, get high off weed 
Collect G's make my enemies bleed, uh
When you see me nigga holla my set, and watch 'em ride 
Outlaw motherfuckers 'til we die, in this life I lead 

I ain't a killer but don't push me dawg 
For the family I'll send that ass straight to God (what you doin' nigga?) 
In this life I lead, I seen the most of my twenty-three years 
My vision is blurry, the money is clear
Some of my peers eternally will sleep in a coffin (yeah nigga) 
And when Nob' on the road, I'm extremely cautious 
(Westside nigga, you know how we do it!) 
It happen that fast, split second you gone 
At the top of my tombstone put "Nob' was raw" 
Outlaw 'til I'm under the floor 
For Kadafi the Prince I stack dough like I clocked all the bricks 
With a watch on my wrist dawg, I know the time these days 
We Outlawz, we gon' die this way (Nigga) 
We already in the history books, 'Pac made sure of that 
Whatever you took, we takin' it back 
You know it's all for the foundation 
Outlawz we still buildin' the Thug Nation, holla at ya homie 

In this life I lead, fiend for currency, get high off weed 
Collect G's make my enemies bleed 
When you see me nigga holla my set, and watch 'em ride 
Outlaw motherfuckers 'til we die, in this life I lead 
Fiend for currency, get high off weed 
Collect G's make my enemies bleed
When you see me nigga holla my set, and watch 'em ride 
Outlaw motherfuckers 'til we die, in this life I lead 

It ain't nothin' but in-between nuts, oxygen is gettin' hot 
Got a problem ol' fag-ass nigga, kick rocks 
On the phone and that nigga talkin' crazy 
I don't know, who to blame, him or killin' babies 
I'm a New Jerz' Devil, the street, creative rebel 
Only got one, shot to produce on every level 
This is bags I must, go the max I must 
Nigga I came from not much, so money I clutch 
Uh-uh, Napoleon the strength of the strong-arm 
When they think they was in the right I prove they movin' wrong 
I'm a, hardcore, product of the ghetto 
Been blessed with a show, to equal my ? (damn) 
I maneuver, in the right lane, quick to push back brains 
Switchin' to the left lane I'm playin my hands 
And I'm plottin' on the fortune, it's gettin' hot and scorchin' 
I'm diggin' like a scorpion that torture they enemies 

In this life I lead, fiend for currency, get high off weed 
Collect G's make my enemies bleed 
When you see me nigga holla my set, and watch 'em ride 
Outlaw motherfuckers 'til we die, in this life I lead 
Fiend for currency, get high off weed 
Collect G's make my enemies bleed
When you see me nigga holla my set, and watch 'em ride 
Outlaw motherfuckers 'til we die, in this life I lead 

Now with this Outlaw lifestyle that I been introduced tao
Money and hoes keep us closer to Lucifer (What's up Kurupt?) 
Steady seducin' us and now I'm all for it 
This the, life for me and the law can't spoil it (right) 
So you can call it what the fuck you want 
But I'ma ballin' alcoholic with a sawed-off pump (nigga!) 
My momma ain't raised no punk, and neither did 'Pac 
So when it jump off, I breathe for Yak' 
Been puttin' in work, so I walk with a bop 
And it ain't safe at home, so I sleep with a glock (no mistakes) 
Thug livin', uhh, what the fuck be better? 
I do my dirt with the family so we dyin' together 

Nah, uh
We on a mission fo' mo', gangsta shit on you hoes 
We ain't fuckin' with you most just crooks and niggas about they flow 
Tryin' to live Godzilla 
E.D.I. went from a Bad Boy, to an anybody killer 
Look out, wanted man, guns in hand 
Stand firm, nuts and my pride, now let's burn 
Bound to the fam goin' down swingin' 
Holdin' my ground and we the last ones breathin' 
Won't stop until we even deep in the trenches 
So many killings it's senseless 
So in this life I lead, I stay protected 
By God, my squad, and this thing in my palm 
Now all my hustlin' motherfuckers, get your money, sing along 

In this life I lead, fiend for currency, get high off weed 
Collect G's make my enemies bleed 
When you see me nigga holla my set, and watch 'em ride 
Outlaw motherfuckers 'til we die, in this life I lead 
Fiend for currency, get high off weed 
Collect G's make my enemies bleed
When you see me nigga holla my set, and watch 'em ride 
Outlaw motherfuckers 'til we die, in this life I lead 

This motherfuckin' life I lead nigga 
You know what time it is 
Westside, Death Row (Dogg Pound) everybody killer 
Bad Boy killer, (?) killer (Thug Life, Death Row) 
Everybody killer, fuck all y'all niggas 
If it ain't Westside nigga it ain't poppin, that's on my momma
