 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Honies cash weed cars 
ghetto celebrities 'hood movie stars 
gat slingers now rap singers are who we are 
went from Nasty to Nas to Nas to Escobar 

The path we all walk starts out long it's like a boardwalk 
monopoly some make it around some go down it's prophecy 
happy days balancing with life's atrocities 
hoppin' in v's knowin' some day I got to lead properly 
high up in a five realizing the price paid 
for this life laid in the light shade 
one might say, top of the world's two whips, a crib and a girl 
quick to celebrate it, poppin' corks like they made it 
pretentious, arrogant niggas is senseless 
pro ball players with white wives, peep they night lives 
while you could catch me in a crisp white five 
dark tinted, dijon-scented, with Al Green on 
my theme song, love and happiness, how can it seem wrong 
I mean before this, I used to rock a taurus with the donuts 
now I grown up, got it chromed up 
got the rap game sewn up, sho-nuff 
niggas acting cool, but it's really no love 
I feel a slow buzz, off the dutch 
this is everyday, every second 
got to make it pay, every lesson I learnt 
got me open while most of these rappers'll stay burnt 

Chorus 2x (the second time "Honies" changes to Money") 
With so much drama in QBC, it's kinda hard being Escobarro 
Elderado Red, sippin' Dom out the bottle 
my life is like a Donald Goines novel 
we wave glasses like bravo 
drunk niggas with mad problems, and shot pockets 
my niggas from the block rock this, 
box cocaine, cook it and chop it 
looking to profit, in different ways 
goin' through this difficult stage, called life 
but each year my physical's praised 
some fell beyond the reach of help 
cut in the street, thinkin' they could teach theyself 
when all we wanted was a piece of wealth 
and randomly, feed our family 
the streets are insanity 
amply, living in ths thug's fantasy 
richest nigga in show biz is what I plan to be 
heavy chain and my QB sway, living this king's life 
magazines write about me, in this dream it's all tight 

Chorus 2x (The Second time "Honies" changes to "Money") 
Now the main thing that boggle my brain be all the bottles of pain 
iced the chain and all the followers came 
they tried to throw me off track, but I caught that 
they thought I lost that 
but I'm continuing to make more stacks 
halftime, new york state of mind, it was written was hittin' 
trips overseas, southeast, diamond and riches 
sleepin on the plane, wake up when we land feelin' real scared, on the 
rollie flush, princess cuts, and large rounds 
the crews up, findin time to shine rocks 
it's real, you violate, be in a pine box 
if it go there, I lay you before you lay me, it's crazy 
I didn't make the game, the game made me 
records for the babies so they raised up in mansions 
haters keep hating, and ladies'll keep glancing 

y'all know the routine out this muthafucka.... word up
