[Verse 1:] 
Yeah I run rings around your crew like a track star 
So stay back far 
You better understand who the macks are 
A brand new invention is my intention 
Been rappin so long some say I should get a pension 
Ain't no tension 
If I forgot to mention 
I rock rhymes over beats for salary and commission 
I got it all figured out like Columbo 
I'll drop you like Dumbo 
Your album is weak, and so is your video 
Or should I say wackeo 
Your girl is a tacky hoe 
Go back to slangin rocks and leave rappin to Coolio 
It's the all assmatic, tongue acrobatic, loc 
Used to be smoked out recovered crack addict 
I'll dip you in some sauce, fool, I'm the boss 
And I still be sending busters to Harris & Ross 
You, gotta pay the cost I refuse to take a loss 
So I spit like I feel it and dust your junky ass off 

[Chorus, Repeat 3X:] 
I break 'em off 
I break 'em all off 

[Verse 2: ]
I got to keep on the real 
With my hands on the steel 
Cause we all understand we got to die one day 
But, everybody knows we got to rise to the top 
And the mission don't stop till the casket drop 
I'm protected by the tech 
And the teflon vest 
And we earn that respect 
Cause we worked so hard so put that needle on the record 
And everybody check it, cause I never been affected 
By what they say 
It's been a whole lot of years since I shed tears 
For my fears I downed case loads of beers and drank jack with my peers 
So never let it be said that I fronted a fake 
I keep the treble in my highs and lows in my bass 
So feel the affect of the wine and funk 
But you gotta have hustle which can vibrate you funk 
City to alley to valley hood and block 
You know I got the sound to break 'em off 

[Chorus, Repeat 7X:] 
I came back from the Congo as Return Of The Jedi 
I smoke the spinach and you get popped in your ezzye 
Watch me do this 
You take a ass whoopin like Brutus 
My rhymes will sound like Buddah, like Olive Oil is skinny and Whimpee 
Sea Hag don't never tempt me 
Get up on the funk so you can feel the simpy 
I can do the rope-a-dope 
And steal a base like Davey Lopes 
And bring more hope back to the hood than the Pope 
So, drink some Scope and try to feel sure 
See, if you can endure 
The pressure that's put on your 
But your soggy ass don't stay crunchy in milk 
That's why your cap get peeled, yeah, you're soft as silk 
It's time to separate the real from the fake 
You shaky like Jake 
And your game always get exposed when you perpetrate 
Check the Times and the Post 
This is straight west coast 
And when I break it off you know it's broke 

[Chorus, Repeat 7.5 times ]
This is straight west coast!
