If Rap Gets Jealous Lyrics

So good things come to those who wait
Sure, I've waited about pop-pop-pop-pop
That's four cousins shot!
I got grudges, let's discuss this, my music needs no touch ups
I got a long record of fuck ups, trust me you don't know who has this weight as mine, or a life as hard as mine.
I had to hustle, chop, sell drugs, grind, whatever you want to call it is fine,
But just listen, and don't preach us
I don't want anyone dismissin' me as another thug or some shit like that,
No Sir! If I fall I will get right back,
I got circumstances, but let me stop dancin' around the issue
And tell you straight forward, I'm poor
A refugee, been in prison and survived the war
I come from the most dangerous city in this universe
You're likely to get shot at birth!...

So I can rap quench my thirst
I don't even hear verses no more
I hear jerkin' off, punks with lip glosses and purses
I don't see nobody I can reach anymore
I see nurses, fuck that!, I'm gonna stay alive! I'd rather do a stage live!

And if rap gets jealous 'cause I rock heavy
It don't worry me if m'aa fuckers don't get it
Yo, if rap gets jealous, words that were admitted
I used to be a public enemy don't forget it.
And if rap gets jealous 'cause I rock heavy
It don't worry me if m'aa fuckers don't get it
Yo, if rap gets jealous,'cause of where I'm headed
Aggression, obsession, we're pain in the gain.

Yo, if rap gets jealous,'cause of where I'm headed
Aggression, obsession, we're pain in the gain.

So yeah, basically I gotta release occasionally
I gotta let you know what's goin' on with me
And facing me are some tough choices
I got a good side and a bad side
Inside my head, I hear screams and loud voices
And I can't lie, ain't got Shit!
I ain't got to brag, I'm hard pressed for some cash
'Cause that's where I'm at with that, you're so superficial!
Of course it's for shizzle, now my choice is to pass on you
Voice! 'Cause my mission is the world
To know my name! my aim! is plainly success!
But I still gotta come practice!...

So I can rap-Quench my thirst
I don't even hear verses no more
I hear jerkin' off, punks with lip glosses and purses
I don't see nobody I can reach anymore
I see nurses, Fuck that!, I'm gonna stay alive! I'd rather do a stage live!

And if rap gets jealous 'cause I rock heavy
It don't worry me if M'aa Fuckers don't get it
Yo! if rap gets jealous, words that were admitted
I used to be a public enemy don't forget it
And if rap gets jealous 'cause I rock heavy
It don't worry me if M'aa Fuckers don't get it
Yo! if rap gets jealous,'cause of where I'm headed
Aggression, Obsession, we're pain in the gain

He, He, He, That's what it is, it's pain, know what I'm sayin'?
I don't know man it's like...
You spend years developing your artistry
Know what I'm sayin'?, perfecting your skills
You can't do shit with it, Ha!
That's gotta be Fucked up!, know what I'm sayin'?
Ha! That's gotta be Fucked up
You know, just imagine like, imagine you build a Fuckin' castle
And you can't live in it, Ha! That's what it is
You can't live it you know
And you got problems, you got family, I got family
Moment of truth right!
And I still gotta come practice!...

So I can rap-Quench my thirst
I don't even hear verses no more
I hear jerkin' off, punks with lip glosses and purses
I don't see nobody I can reach anymore
I see nurses, Fuck that!, I'm gonna stay alive! I'd rather do a stage live!
