It's bigger than the hip, hop
It's bigger than the hip, hop
It's bigger than the hip, hop
It's bigger than the hip, hop
It's bigger than the hip, hop
Trust, believe, ah, ah,

I ride for my niggas dog,
And we gotta stay alive just to get a job
The hood look like one big prison, yo
And death is the only visitor
They don't want you at your best
That means stay at your worst
They wanna hear struggle bars
You wanna keep it classic burst
Niggas sleep with the fish like a pelican
Get that stitch for ...
They killed Pac he was too Machiavelian
Stood that in the middle of a room like an elephant
Cause what he said was way too relevant
Never ignorant, way too intelligent
Now we gotta run this scared...
Used to kick dust in the air now we settling
Don't want you to vote like an alien
Came here on a boat like alien
Guns ... they want your dollars,
Gotta work for hours, it's do ...
10 thousand hours strong,
Just to keep the light to the power on
This new New York feel wrong
Babylon's here, but the tower's gone

Where you at, where you at, where you at?
Victory's so sweet but the oh yeah the taste is sour
That's the agony of
I really be in these streets while the only...
You know is the Japanese club
I know queens that will rock your tools
Pulling out... rock them tubes
We on an island and stacking, falling Manhattan
Like a big fan of the ...
The Brooklyn you know it got your chick
Spill your blood like a battering crips
Youngsters looking out for the same gang
Hunger and my belly got the same pain
Just same thang... pursuing the food
Just to maintain
The same thang when we bang bang
Let the fans hang
In pursuit of the food just to maintain.
