    Dr. Dre



    [kung fu sample]

    Where is he?
    Concentrate on the job, don't disturb the doctor

    [Intro]

    (Raekwon)

    Yeah, word up
    Who said we ain't the definition of exclusive shit?
    Real rap, you know
    Yeah, this is multi expensive rap here, brother
    Word up, time to recreate the power
    You know what it is, man, nothing but gangsta shit, baby
    Let's go Doc, I need that prescription
    Ayo, ayo

    I grew up on the foul side, nickel bag vile side
    Purple tops, two for fives
    I had seven grams, outside with my eleven mans
    On the corners with a pocket full of contrabands
    Running up and down fire escapes, NARCs coming
    Jump in the window, let your Nikes fly, hide the freaks
    Guess up in the Hill it was real to me
    What a nigga would of did if you steal from me
    All my life around drug niggas, villains who want millions
    Niggas with them hoodies on, with techs in the building
    Mad fiends, bags of green, Gillette razors
    Fly neighbors, all live blazers, designer jeans
    That's why we live, niggaz need shit in they crib
    Go broke, you gonna rope you a vic'
    It's just full-time stragglers, niggaz try to take your place
    And smile in your face, but still and all back stabbers

    [Chorus]

    (Lyfe Jennings)

    I was trying to get home
    Leave a couple mill' to my kids when I'm gone
    Nigga, that ain't cologne, it's the smell of this money
    I was trying to get home
    Cuz I don't know when my karma gon' catch up
    I don't know when the toilet gon' back up
    And put me in some shit, that I can't get out of

    (Raekwon)

    Come on, bags of money, trying to stay rich and fly
    Keep it cool, silks and dungarees
    Crew glasses and food, grilled salmon trying to make a move
    Those who knowing they be dapping they dudes
    How it do, blow a lot of cruise, stay in the cut
    Pacing, from here to L.A., and Hawaii and Cuba
    Blew new Uzi too, serial numbers is brail
    So when you rub against it feel all tools
    Now I'm with some special niggaz, next level niggaz with rubble bezzles
    Who drive Exeleros with jewels
    Brolic boots on, olive Goose, calamari soups and noodles
    That spell out, y'all niggas the truth
    What it is baby boy, reclining in the big Benz
    La-Z-Boy, ends upped, lenses on, Chips A'hoy
    Shipping triple, niggas try to stop the issue
    And cock blocked but can't stop the official, what

    [Chorus x2]

    (Raekwon)

    Yeah, for real, man
    Word up, we gon' keep it official
    We gon' make sure y'all get that raw shit man, yeah
    Compliments of my niggas, yeah, yeah, Dre
    This is powerful, baby, we gon' take 'em there, man
    Locomotive, bulletproof fly shit, let's go

    ^ co-sign, it's the weakest song on the album and the only song that doesn't work too well in the context of the other tracks. Dre is a great producer but his style and sound doesn't fit an album like this too well imo, "About Me" was better but a little bit of the same case. looking back, i'm glad the Aftermath situation didn't work out
