In Los Angeles I got to have paper I'm a nigga, don't talk to my neighbors Straight asshole, always up in Vegas (yay yay) Lay it out for these niggas to follow Get the point, but these points is hollow Now this here, is hard to swallow But if you do it's like hittin' the lotto Little nigga with big bravado Hit the throttle niggas hit the bottle Can give a fuck if they life is hollow Where the fuck was you, when I rocked the Apollo, bitch?
