featuring Jazze Pha

[Ras Kass]

I been around the world once had your fiancé twice

I ain't nothin' nice but every lifestyle got a price

Kiss my momma on the cheek cause her love was deep

Like Keith Sweat but the deeper the streets get

The deeper the beef get

Enough fatal attraction to ??? your vet

Cause everybody want to have it ??? and sh

Now ??? is my ??? over night insight

I write like six hundred thousand kilobytes

Yes I'm on one, European cars, Cuban cigars, rap stars,

Glass ceilings to the inevitable cap dealing for sexual healing

I lack feeling, voted for black women like Terry Macmillan

Save a prayer for me, I was told no guts no glory

I shed a tear once in a while, too

But a soldier gots to do what he gots to do

I once ??? in ??? for Rupert Murdoch, I thought you knew

It is what it is


[Jazze Pha] Nowadays, that's the way it is

[Ras Kass] Why do we do what we do when we do what we must, that's

how it is, and how it is is kinda fucked up

[Jazze Pha] It's sad to say, but things just ain't the same no more

[Ras Kass] Why do we do what we do when we do what we lust, it is

what it is, and how it is is kinda fucked up

[Ras Kass]

If the pussy is free, then talk is cheap

Then again, it's probably cheaper to keep her

Back in the days, all a nigga needed was suede pumas and a beeper

Now they all expecting condos, briquettes and pet cheetahs

See ya when I see ya

And by then I know the motors she bogus I noticed they jockin the rims on

the ???

I learned early to trust God when moms was like [you wear all that Nike


You need to swoosh your ass and get a job

My occupation be operation, more horsepower than Daytona

Cause I'm a rider, like Wynonna

Being nice is a vice, the gift is naturally mine

That's like grand verbalizing not knowin the time

See, my partners commit crimes servin federal ???

Confined to a six by nine regretin the wrong shit he did

I swig, wishing we was still little kids

But we grown men now homey, it is what it is


[Ras Kass]

Hip hop ain't even fun

In these strange days, rappers is getting done

Like Jericho won

Within two months, two major artists got slumped

I whispered 'God rest the dead' and let the ??? pump pump

Kept a ??? since about eleventh grade

Rock the Donna Carren shades

Cause I don't like to dream about getting paid

But I'm afraid I do

Trying to organize a team, willing to empty magazines

This supreme fiends for cream

We need g's, like Mary Magdelline and born again Christians

Ain't a politician cause I already got your vote

True, I want your money but I ain't a preacher no

I don't even love the dough

But if you don't work you don't eat, so I want all I can get before I go

I love what money can get

It's elementary evidently, the custom convertible Bentley tently

It is what it is

Hook x2

[Jazze Pha]

There are things that we can change

Some things remain the same

That's just the way it is

Way it goes, yeah

There are things that we can change

But most things gon' stay the same

It's the way it is

You better believe it, ooh yeah
