Kool G Rap

Nathaniel Thomas Wilson (born July 20, 1968), better known by his stage names Kool G Rap (or simply G Rap, and originally Kool Genius of Rap) is an American rapper. He hails from the Corona neighborhood of Queens, New York City. He began his career in the mid-1980s as one half of the group Kool G Rap & DJ Polo and as a member of the Juice Crew. He is often cited as one of the most influential and skilled MCs of all time as he is a pioneer of mafioso rap/street/hardcore content and multisyllabic rhyming. On his album The Giancana Story, he stated that the "G" in his name stands for "Giancana" (after the mobster Sam Giancana), but on other occasions he's stated that it stands for "Genius". more »

The umm security we have here today 
Not the open security 
The ones that that really sittin' there 
And really think we don't know who they are! 

"Now that's funky" 
"Now that's funky" 
"Now that's funky" 
"Now that's funky" 
Crime don't pay that's what they tell us 
But that's because the other motherfuckers gettin' jealous 
But I'ma tell you this they neighborhood got the Goodfellas 
But they come arrest us for the same shit they sell us 
Cause they don't want to see a young black nigga rollin' 
Inside a nice car, nice kit, without the shit bein' stolen 
So they come and lock a nigga up 
Meanwhile some corrupt, politician nigga is makin' bigger bucks 
Niggaz gettin' blamed for the crystals; but we don't grow 
The motherfuckin' coke or weed or make the fuckin' pistols 
Niggaz ain't tryin' to live in poverty 
And a black man's lottery's a motherfuckin' robbery 
So yo you gotta make your best 
Make a small investment and then put it to the test ("I know!") 
Yes, cause the other motherfuckers gettin over 
Police don't look at a white man strange drivin' a Range Rover 
Carrying shit like it's minerals 
The big dollar white dollar suit and tie criminals 
Even the government figures 
Sellin' shit to the motherfuckin' Columbians and rich niggaz 
Crime isn't time from the brothers 
Hey you say it don't pay, it's payin white motherfuckers 
It all depends on how you do your shit 
'Cause either learn it quick intelligent and that's it 
("I beg your pardon?") You're well fittin' 
F*ck workin' for a bastard 
I gotta see that money before my ass sees a casket 
Get paid, motherfuck a raise 
'Cause to all them improper crooked coppers, crime pays 

"Jack you motherfuckers" 
"Jack you motherfuckers" 
"Wake up and go for what you know" 
"Everybody's got to make a living" 
"Boy I'm trying to make me some money!!" 
Stop, nigga stop, nigga freeze 
But at the same time, some old rich f*ck, is drivin' by with twenty ki's 
Because they came up with a law 
To keep the rich motherfuckers rich and the poor motherfuckers poor 
We take the cake you get the crumbs 
Stackin' up a package of cracks, to sell to blacks in the slums 
Guns are bein' sold over the counter 
And you wonder why your daughter's head was slaughtered when they found her 
Why did he have to shoot the bitch 
But the bitch I mean the witch just had to switch 
To make the nigga Richie Rich 
Yeah, so I'm throwin' you the phrase 
Believe me when I tell you motherfuckin' crime pays
