    Best Lyrics:

    Girl your daddy was a real n****, not 'cos he was cold
    Not because he was the first to get some p*ssy twelve years old
    Not because he used to come through in the Caddy on some vogues
    Not because he went from bagging up them grams to serving O's
    Nah your daddy was a real n****, not 'cos he was hard
    Not because he lived a life of crime and sat behind some bars
    Not because he screamed f*ck the law, although that was true
    Your daddy was a real n**** 'cuz he loved you"
    For your eyes only

    Best Lyrics:

    It's beauty in the struggle, ugliness in the success
    Hear my words or listen to my signal of distress
    I grew up in the city and know sometimes we had less
    Compared to some of my n***** down the block, man, we were blessed
    And life can't be no fairytale, no once upon a time
    But I be goddamned if a n**** don't be tryin'
    So tell me, mama please, why you be drinking all the time?
    Does all the pain he brought you still linger in your mind?

    Best Lyrics:

    Don't save her, she don't wanna be saved
    Don't save her, she don't wanna be saved
    Fool me one time shame on you
    Fool me twice, can't put the blame on you
    Fool me three times, f*ck the peace signs
    Load the chopper, let it rain on you

    Now I'm sure you done head about me
    A black star, Mos Def, Kweli
    Good so them bad hoes try me, they try me
    This is Martin Luther King in the club, getting dubs
    With a bad b*tch in his ear, sayin' that she down for whatever
    In the back of his mind is Coretta
    And she knows, she knows
    And I know she knows, and I know she knows

    Best Lyrics:

    Crib has got a big 'ol backyard
    My n***** stand outside and pass cigars
    Filled with marijuana, laughin' hard
    Thankful that they friend's a platinum star
    In the driveway there's no rapper cars
    Just some sh*t to get from back and forth
    Just some sh*t to get from back and forth
    Welcome to the shelter, this is pure
    We'll help you if you've felt too insecure
    To be the star you always knew you were
    Wait, I think police is at the door

    Okay, the neighbors think I'm sellin' dope

    Best Lyrics:

    I wrote back and said "of course I had sex before"
    Knowing I was frontin'
    I said I was like a pro baby
    Knowing I was stuntin'
    But if I told the truth I knew I'd get played out son
    Hadn't been in p*ssy since the day I came out one
    But, she don't know that
    So she done roll back and told me
    "Oh you a pro homie? Well I want you to show me
    My mama gone for the weekend
    So Saturday baby we can get to freakin'"
