Hey, the price of fame cost to much (yeah boy) Like these niggas talk to much (yeah) I'm ready for whatever somebody better tell them (yeah boy) Said I'm ready for whatever Hey, hey, hey,
Even tho my head in the clouds I'm planted on the pavement How I walk around people starring in amazement I play a lot of game a well-being I ain't playing wit They so judgmental man but they don't understand If ya life was in jeopardy everyday is you telling me You wouldn't need weaponry just because of ya felony's Consider this at least I got everybody sweating me On the streets there's people who wont rest unless I rest in peace Killed my folk a year ago still in my sleep they threatening me Paranoid you stressing me ain't nobody protecting me I'm dealing wit the pressure from my partner dieing next to me Niggas know I was arrested they coming for me eventually This was all the things that I was going through mentally This could be the reason I ignore the penitentiary Not mentioning New Orleans niggas coming in the city Killing all summer long ain't nobody pay attention
Now is it that hard to understand if you listen Either die or go to jail that's a hell of decision But I'm wrong and I know it my excuses unimportant I'm just trying to let you know that I ain't think I had a choice, for real
[Chorus] I had straps in my ride gotta go to prison You waiting on me to die you gone be waiting for a minute Boy i'm ready for whatever somebody better tell them I'll be here when the smoke clear and everything settle (for real) Cant afford the price of fame cause it cost too much Man these sucker niggas lame and they talk to much That's why I'm ready for whatever somebody tell them I'll be here when the smoke clear and everything settle For real, for real, hey for real, I said when everything settle For real, hey for real, hey for real, hey for real I said when everything settle for real
I'm a man I ain't perfect I admit it I'm guilty But understand feel me I was riding filthy Cause niggas out there plotting to rob me and kill me five hundred thousand every year spent on security My future was bright but now its getting blurry Cause niggas in a hurry to find me and bury me But surely God'll deliver me up out it I'm a fighter till the heart I'll forever be about it I'm a father to my sons as it to my community Look all that I done my good out weigh the negativity Hey mentally I was focused on that letting history repeat itself That's why heat was kept in a vicinity Yes officially I broke the law but not maliciously Through all the publicity was anyone considerin' My position and the logic hidden my decision But they caught me with them now I'm off to prison, period
But is it that hard to understand if you listen Either die or go to jail that's a hell of decision But I'm wrong and I know it my excuses unimportant I'm just trying to let you know that I ain't think I had a choice, for real
Hey I said listen homeboy You can talk all you want man you know what I'm saying Everybody talking to the king you know what I'm saying They like Escalades everybody got one But the fact of the matter remain If you ain't walk a mile in my shoes and you ain't live a day in my life You ain't survive the shit I done survived You ain't had to deal wit the shit I had to deal wit homeboy You cant motherfucking judge me partner I mean look at folk like Sean Taylor You know what they said, they said had he had a strap He'd f lived today You know what I'm saying Now true enough I did wrong I broke the law I deserve to be punished I understand that alright cool But listen man I gotta house full of kids A mama and an old lady whose life is my Responsibility you dig that? Now for all of y'all who think I was just riding around on some dumb shit You know I'm smarter than you man You know I'm smarter than you dog Hey if you think I was just being stupid Shorty I got some motherfucking ocean front property in Idaho for sale homie If you believe that I gotta bridge in Brooklyn I wanna sell you partner Hey man real talk in order to understand my train of thoughts You'll have to put yo self in my position You cant expect me to think like you cause my life ain't like yours You know what I'm saying? If you don't understand that you don't Understand english I'm done talking!
