Lyrics

 

"Attention all ni**a rows and ni**a hoes

 

We've decided to rob this motherf**ker the legal way

Nobs injecting ourselves to become property on the stock

In the penal system In the justice system"

 

Penitentiary I hear you calling me

Penitentiary I hear you calling me

Penitentiary I hear you calling me

Penitentiary I hear you calling me

As the world turns it burns while it's spinning

 

Coming to a f**ked up ending

I can't wait till the day everything in the hood is straight

And I can hit the purty gates

Until then the pen is unfair

Slave ships in the middle of nowhere (ma)

I lets my goddamn hair grow (ma)

Bellin' in court lookin' like a scarecrow

On Capital Hill they them passed a bill

Coming at me with a f**ked-up deal (nah)

The judge gave me a 'L'

But y'all can't tell

I wait and cry in my cell

Convicted negro superhero

 

Speaker at our house

Takin' lyrics in my mouth

B**ches in the south showin' a** (mm)

Mix a lot got hoes puttin' titties on the glass

We blast in the west for example

And rap about this sh*t over funkadelic samples

Yo' babies see me kill a fool on TV (Wilson )

And straight call me a G

Penitentiary I hear you calling me

Penitentiary I hear you calling me

Thinkin' of illegal ways to get paid

But it ain't sh*t got to be legit

South-central L A

You can buy your game from the C I A hey-hey

 

And South-central L A

You can buy your game from the C I A baby

Penitentiary I hear you calling me

Penitentiary I hear you calling me

 

Thinkin' of illegal ways to get paid

But it ain't sh*t got to be legit

When the evil outweighs the good

And you only give a f**k about rucks

The Earth will self-destruct (B**ch)

F**k the ozone layer b**ch I'm a player (B**ch)

Plus we got a black mayor

I get sex when I shows flex (Boom )

Porbey Rolex (Boom )

Which hoe is next

Would you like a piece of me Not a mate

Calling you a hoe 'cause I'm f**king on the first day (uh)

My world is a one-mile radius

I swear every other hood is the shadiest (uh)

Could the crips and bloods be all rotten

The When trilateral commission is plottin'

 

What you gonna do when the Earth erupts

Some niggas gettin' nuts outa carafel cups (punk)

Fool you on master's woe

But won't even think about sucking Bob Doe (punk)

Asshole from the Senate

How can you relate to a project tennant

Motherf**k you and not the court man no corrections

Tryina' get a section of this west-side connection

Penitentiary I hear you calling me

Penitentiary I hear you calling me

Thinkin' of illegal ways to get paid

But it ain't sh*t got to be legit

Penitentiary I hear you calling me

Penitentiary I hear you calling me

Thinkin' of illegal ways to get paid

But it ain't sh*t got to be legit

South-central L A

You can buy your game from the C I A hey-hey

And South-central L A

You can buy your game from the C I A baby

 

Just because you staygotta

You ain't gotta rot away

We goin' come one and get you day

 

Just because you gotta stay

You ain't gotta rot away

We goin' come and get you one day

 

Just because you gotta stay

You ain't gotta rot away

We goin' come and get you one day

 

Just because you gotta stay

You ain't gotta rot away

We goin' come and get you one day
