    [Intro]

    (RZA)

    Dear momma, no need for the head drama
    I quit slinging that yac', don't need the feds on us
    I made a mil' off the deal, legit
    After I pay the tax, I'ma buy us a crib
    In the winter, I'ma buy us a whip
    So we can take long trips, just me and the kids
    I'm up again, I never let you down
    Nothings ever gonna stop me now
    I'm up from the gwop, don't gotta hide from the cops
    Plus homey's got a spot, they can stay off the block
    They can drop a few tracks, or spar a few minds
    The God home from the pen, he left the yard behind
    Got a brand new sampler, take the breaks and I loop it
    Got a license for the gat, in case the public is stupid
    Plus, I ain't afraid to shoot it
    A man with the family, is firmly rooted

    [Interlude]

    (Talani Rabb)

    We on top right now, we living
    Ain't nobody saying it, can't nobody fade us
    We killing, look at this, yo, just sweet in here
    We did it, we ain't gotta worry bout nothing no more
    We on top right now, we living
    Ain't nobody saying it, can't nobody fade us
    I always know you was gonna make it
    You was a dreamer, from day one

    (Beretta 9)

    What shall I speak, about the brothers that passed?
    Make me weak about the knees, make me wanna bust ass
    Or should I kick knowledge, and I ain't even graduate
    But take it from me, it ain't cool to skip class, imagine it
    Five Gods, came to picture perfect, to ovulate to it
    Music and expression of freedom, escape to it
    Not much to it, we was born and conceived to it
    And me being the man that I am, the same could do it
    Surrounded by a civilized man, a weak woman
    Subconsciously be planting a fed, inside children
    Allow me to explain my cause, or who I B-E-R-E, Double T, A, N-I-N-E
    A/K/A K-I-N-E-T-I-C, my attribute B-O-R-N G-O-D Allah
    Searching for the truth in myself, I seen, I saw
    In order to achieve it all, must give my all

    [Interlude]

    (Talani Rabb)

    I always know you was gonna make it
    You was a dreamer, from day one
    Look at how you killing them right now
    Why don't you go get you a massage or something, daddy
    Ain't gotta worry bout none of that
    Matter fact, pass me the oil
    I got you all day, you know you did your thing
    Just sit back and relax

    (The Reverend William Burk)

    Off up in the C-H-I, C-A to the G-O
    Where the winter time temperature be twenty below
    Knee deep up in the snow, the Reverend still get dough
    To pay the bills, feed his family and go get more
    Money, now we taking trips to Jamaica, just to relax
    My homey's came a long way since paper from g-packs
    But gone, they used to be pushing BP's and Z-nax
    Now they wire us our paper back and forth like we fax
    We ask the lord and savior for guidance
    It's probably hard to hear us over gunshots and violence
    Figure when I'm in the casket it'll be plenty silence
    So in the end, when you add it up, it all balance
    The crew been up, staying higher than pallets
    On vacations in the islands, watching women with talents
    Fellowship and with the family members who be the wildest
    Now we live in mansions, castles and golden palaces

    [Interlude]

    (Talani Rabb)

    Into everything that you put your hard work into
    Look at the gold on the lamp, baby
    Look at the size of this TV
    Look at everything, just take up all the beauty in this room right now
    Look at how you did your thing, you did it
    We living right now, we ain't gotta worry bout nothing no more
    Yeah hahahaha

    [Fade out]

    (El DeBarge)

    Up again, I'll never let you down
    Nothing's ever gonna stop me now

    (George Clinton *El DeBarge*)

    Up again, I'll never let you down
    *Nothing's ever gonna stop us now*
    Nothing's ever gonna stop us now
    Up again, I'll never you down
    *Never let you down, never let you down*
    Up again, I'll never you down
    *Nothing's ever gonna stop us now*
    Up again, I'll never you down
    *Up again, I'll never you down
    Nothing's ever gonna stop us now
    Up again, I'll never you down
    Nothing's ever gonna stop us now
    Up again, I'll never you down
    Nothing's ever gonna stop us now
    Up again, I'll never you down
    Nothing's ever gonna stop us now
    Up again, I'll never you down
    Nothing's ever gonna stop us now)

    [Outro]

    (Talani Rabb *RZA*)

    Bobby, make this world digital
    Bobby, your love is so digital
    *Spell my name B-O-B-B-Y*
    *B, O, B, B, Y, Bobby repeat after me*

    A marathon, one of those tracks that should be played as an encore at the end of a concert. Banger
