featuring Jazze Pha 

[Ras Kass] 

I been around the world once  had your fiancé twice 

I ain't nothin' nice  but every lifestyle got a price 

Kiss my momma on the cheek cause her love was deep 

Like Keith Sweat  but the deeper the streets get 

The deeper the beef get 

Enough fatal attraction to ??? your vet 

Cause everybody want to have it ??? and sh 

Now  ??? is my ??? over night  insight 

I write like six hundred thousand kilobytes 

Yes I'm on one, European cars, Cuban cigars, rap stars, 

Glass ceilings to the inevitable cap dealing for sexual healing 

I lack feeling, voted for black women like Terry Macmillan 

Save a prayer for me, I was told no guts no glory 

I shed a tear once in a while, too 

But a soldier gots to do what he gots to do 

I once ??? in ??? for Rupert Murdoch, I thought you knew 

It is what it is 


[Jazze Pha] Nowadays, that's the way it is 

[Ras Kass] Why do we do what we do when we do what we must, that's 

how it is, and how it is is kinda f*cked up 

[Jazze Pha] It's sad to say, but things just ain't the same no more 

[Ras Kass] Why do we do what we do when we do what we lust, it is 

what it is, and how it is is kinda f*cked up 

[Ras Kass] 

If the pussy is free, then talk is cheap 

Then again, it's probably cheaper to keep her 

Back in the days, all a nigga needed was suede pumas and a beeper 

Now they all expecting condos, briquettes and pet cheetahs 

See ya when I see ya 

And by then I know the motors she bogus I noticed they jockin the rims on 

the ??? 

I learned early to trust God when moms was like [you wear all that Nike 


You need to swoosh your ass and get a job 

My occupation be operation, more horsepower than Daytona 

Cause I'm a rider, like Wynonna 

Being nice is a vice, the gift is naturally mine 

That's like grand verbalizing not knowin the time 

See, my partners commit crimes servin federal ??? 

Confined to a six by nine regretin the wrong shit he did 

I swig, wishing we was still little kids 

But we grown men now homey, it is what it is 


[Ras Kass] 

Hip hop ain't even fun 

In these strange days, rappers is getting done 

Like Jericho won 

Within two months, two major artists got slumped 

I whispered 'God rest the dead' and let the ??? pump pump 

Kept a ??? since about eleventh grade 

Rock the Donna Carren shades 

Cause I don't like to dream about getting paid 

But I'm afraid I do 

Trying to organize a team, willing to empty magazines 

This supreme fiends for cream 

We need g's, like Mary Magdelline and born again Christians 

Ain't a politician cause I already got your vote 

True, I want your money but I ain't a preacher no 

I don't even love the dough 

But if you don't work you don't eat, so I want all I can get before I go 

I love what money can get 

It's elementary evidently, the custom convertible Bentley tently 

It is what it is 

Hook x2 

[Jazze Pha] 

There are things that we can change 

Some things remain the same 

That's just the way it is 

Way it goes, yeah 

There are things that we can change 

But most things gon' stay the same 

It's the way it is 

You better believe it, ooh yeah
