Just To Get A Rep (Edited) Lyrics

(Stick up kids is out to tax)

(Stick up kids is out to tax)

(Stick up kids is out to tax)

(And this is how the story goes)

Brothers are amused by others brother's reps

But the thing they know best is where the gun is kept

Cause in the night you'll feel fright

And at the sight of a four to fifth I guess you just might

Wanna do a dance or two

Cause they could maybe bust you for self or wit a crew

No matter is you or your brother's a star

He could pop you in and jet without a getaway car

And some might say that he's a dummy

But he's sticking you and taking all of your money

It's a daily operation

He might be loose in the park or lurking at the train station

Mad brothers know his name

So he thinks he got a little fame

From the stick up game

And while we're blaming society

He's at a party with his man

They got their eye on the gold chain

That the next man's wearing

It looks big but they ain't staring

Just thinking of a way and when to get the brother

They'll be long gone before the kid recovers

And back around the way he'll have the chain on his neck

Claiming respect just to get a rep

(Stick up kids is out to tax)

(Stick up kids is out to tax)

(Stick up kids is out to tax)

(And this is how the story goes)

Ten brothers in a circle

Had the kid trapped the one wit the hood he said we'll hurt you

If you don't run out your dues and pay

Give up the Rolex watch or you won't see another day

See they were on the attack

And one said yo you wanna make this to a homicide rap

Make it fast so we can be on our way

Kick in the rings and everything ok

The kid was nervous and flinching

And little shorty with the three to eight yo he was inching

Closer and closer put the gun to his head

Shorty was down to catch a body instead

Money was scared so he panicked

Took off his link and his rings and ran frantic

But shorty said now pulled the trigger and stepped

It was nothing he did it just to get a rep

(Stick up kids is out to tax)

(Stick up kids is out to tax)

(Stick up kids is out to tax)

(Stick up kids is out to tax)
