歌詞

 

 

Leave the angels in the city

 

Leave the angels in the city

 

Tell them muthaf-ckas I'm forever paid

 

California king wrestle gators in the Everglades

 

Drive up out that muthaf-ckin swamp in the Escalade

So before you put that Red rag

In your pocket I wanna see your f-ckin resume

 

Started off on Ground Zero then I start to levitate

Rip rappers a new asshole: I never hesitate

 

Dre Beats on smoking that chronic just to meditate

I'm a give em hurricanes until another Levee break

You niggas is featherweight

 

I'm Aftermath's heavyweight

 

Now Dre's weapon of mass destruction

Is 'bout to detonate

 

When a ni**a wack found me sh*t

I was selling weight

Now a ni**a's selling millions

Now it's time to celebrate

 

Performing in front of millions ni**a every race

 

64 in the'64 now watch the Chevy scrape

 

4th album no 5 mics Then let 'em hate

But I'm not stopping

'Til I'm the f-cking king in every state

 

Recognize my life ridicule my fight

 

Give me fuel for the fire burning

When I yearn these lights

 

In the midst of the hieroglyphs

My fingertips start to write

Get familiar Cartwrightwith

 

Cause I wrote that shot

I'm a raging bull when the needle drops

For the record I'mm wreck it

Even if my record don't pop

I'mma tie your knot on a Downtown building

Let it tow behind me

Tell' em they can find me

In with the dark the ghetto children look at my heart

Ni**a f-ck your feelings this is me

I'm sick of muthaf-ckers talking about "the West died”

Can't you hear my heart beating

 

That's the motherf-ckin West side

 

You test me you test God

I'm his son insane songs you come at me

Then I can split you with this Tommy gun

You won't have no time to run

 

I'm from the Compton slums

And that's how the West ride

 

I'm from the city where 2 of the best died

Rest in peace to both of 'em

Spit like I'm the ghost of 'em

Damn I said I spit like I'm the ghost of 'em

 

Name your top 10

I'm harder than the most of 'em

 

Matter of fact shorten your list ni**a top 5

 

Game Biggie Hov prolly Pac Nas

 

No particular ord'r

 

Bet a mil that I slaughter serve niggas

Give a f-ck what you ordered

 

How dare you niggas pop fly

 

When I'm the ni**a sold 5 mil out the gate

And numbers do not lie

 

Recognize my life ridicule my fight

 

Give me fuel for the fire burning

When I yearn these lights

In the midst of the hieroglyphs

My fingertips start to write

Get familiar with Cartwright

 

Cause I wrote that shot

I'm a raging bull when the needle drops

For the record I'mm wreck it

Even if my record don't pop

I'mma tie your knot on a Downtown building

Let it tow behind me

Tell'em they can find me in the dark

With the look ghetto at children my heart

Ni**a f-ck your feelings this is me

I gave you the Documentary sh*t was a classic

 

Gave you Doctor's Advocate

You ripped it out the package

 

Came with LAX since critics said it was average

I was stressed the f-ck out

Torn between Aftermath and

 

Geffen Interscope now I got you in the scope

Spill the red ink on the paper

It's like my pen is broke

And this is what you all been waiting for

 

I'm the lost angel knocking on Satan's door

What the f-ck y'all take me for

I love you cause you hate me more

I'm Kobe on the Lakers floor

Except I give you 84

 

Shake you like Haiti's floor walk up on you

Like "what's going on baby boy

Shots in that Mercedes door

Either I'm crazy or the black Slim Shady or

Could that be the reason

That Baby said he would pay me more

 

But I still owe Jimmy one more album

 

The best the West has ever seen

No disrespect to Calvin

 

Recognize my life ridicule my fight

 

Give me fuel for the fire burning

When I yearn these lights

In the midst of the hieroglyphs

My fingertips start to write

Get familiar with Cartwright

 

Cause I wrote that shot

I'm a raging bull when the needle drops

For the record I'mm wreck it

Even if my record don't pop

I'mma tie your knot on a Downtown building

Let it tow behind me

Tell'em they can find me in the dark

With the ghetto children look at my heart

Ni**a f-ck your feelings this is me

Kendrick And I wear pendant on my shoulder soldier

Like a lieutenant

And the coupe tinted got pulled over

Johnny always lock a ni**a down

Knowing damn well we don't wanna see

The box Manny like Pacquiao

Little ni**a Mayweather size

Ride like Pac in his prime

Thug life is now on radar

Til the federal come through and raid ours

Reminiscing when the LA Raiders

Was in my home

Snapback fitted on my uncle's dome

And I don't condone dickriding

I'm addicted to Westsiding

Living in a city where the skinny niggas die

And the semi bullets but fly

It turn me to a lion

Trying and I mean that sh*t

Game came through

Put the city on his back

I was in the city with a ni**a

Had seen that sh*t

"Compton ni**a a gotta scream that sh*t

Never went commercial

Never T V screened that sh*t

 

Can't block or screen that sh*t

Now everybody sing that sh*t

 

Red is a very emotionally intense colour

 

It enhances Human metabolism

 

Increases respiration rate and raises blood pressure

 

It has a very high visibility

 

It is why stop signs stop lights

And fire equipments are usually painted red

 

It also represents one third of

California's gang population

 

Needless to say

 

Please dress accordingly while visiting

The Los Angeles area

 

Also tuck your jewellry

And keep your hands inside your vehicle

Thank You
