    Let these fools know

    (You been so good to me)

    The game's been good to me
    My fans been good to me

    The money been good to me

    All I need though is this shit

    [VERSE 1:]
    Talkin about I be rappin off track
    Some of you square suckers be tryina say E-40 wack
    Do your due dilligence in your research 'fore I pimp my pen
    If you ain't never lived it and done it, you can't comprehend
    I'm a fixture, a factor, somethin that you ain't
    Respect my rank, you got none of that, point blank
    I'm one of your favorite MC's favorite MC
    Ask they ass, they know me
    Bet you they tell you "That boy right there got flows and creativity
    That's the big homie"
    I'm authentic and real, I'm far from bein phoney
    Originality is a must whenever I bust
    Before I got into the rap game I was hustlin on the hush
    Rock it up (?) dust, same color as pie crust
    Penitentiary chances, shackles, chains and handcuffs
    The first rapper talkin about triple-beam scales
    Choppers, drought seasons and shit like that
    I got some real niggas that'll vouch for that
    Might not know how to freestyle but my rhymes'll paint a picture
    Fuck bein a lyricist, I'm a fuckin game spitter
    Pandemonium and chaos the price of bein a boss
    That come with the package, I'm a savage, slightly throwed off
    Grew up on $hort and Freddie B, Magic Mike and Calvin T
    Dolemite and Blowfly, KRS and Ice-T
    Melle Mel and Spoonie, just to name a few
    UTFO, Kool Herc and Afrika Bambaataa, too

    (You been so good to me)

    The game's been good to me
    My fans been good to me
    The money been good to me
    G-O-D been good to me

    You all I need
    You all I need
    You all I need
    You all I need

    [VERSE 2:]
    I paved the way for indie labels
    Ask Master P and Birdman what I brought to the table
    Out the trunk independently
    Sold hundreds of thousands of records with no video or airplay
    Me and my uncle St. Charles
    Suga, D-Shot, Legit, The Click, legends in this shit
    But hold up, it don't stop there
    If I got a dollar for every word I made up I'd be a billionaire
    I'm the past and the present
    I was sayin shit 20 years ago y'all niggas just now sayin
    I done seen rappers come and go
    Get they 15 minutes of fame, then you don't hear about them no mo'
    Yeah, I done had my ups and downs
    But the cold part about it is E-40 still around
    I don't know why these suckers keep sayin I need to get my mumblin ass out the way
    When I got a passion for rappin, partner, I don't do it just for pay
    You oughta come to one of my concerts, you oughta come to one of my shows
    I do my old school and my new school songs and all of them bitches go
    They don't build 'em like me no mo', I'm a motherfuckin pro
    A living legend, collection of classics, thought that you should know
    You can't erase me out of history
    I'm from the same place as CC
    (?) Vallejo California, if you blink you might miss it

    (You been so good to me)

    The game's been good to me
    My fans been good to me
    The money been good to me
    G-O-D been good to me

    You all I need
    You all I need
    You all I need
    You all I need

    [VERSE 3:]
    Third verse, more than half my life
    Since teenagers, I gotta thank my wife
    Since we was little young cubs
    Born in the struggle, broke, livin off of love
    This is the actual, not a non-theatrical movie
    I thank God for my sons, Issue and Droop-E
    Even though they divorced, my mama and my daddy
    My sister, my brothers, my cousins and my family
    I love y'all, and my fans when they hated
    Were down with my futuristic ass way before I made it
    And all my real ones with some balls
    Went out funkin, beefin, feudin, niggas made some phone calls
    Ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta - Pow!
    Ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta - Pow!
    Ratata-tat, put him on his back
    Bust a sucker head (?)
    The rap game's been good with me
    Stuck when me when I didn't even have a penny
    You lames can say what you like
    But I been in it for 22, I gotta be doin somethin right
    That means I'm not a overnight
    Overnight sensation, didn't happen over night
    I broke barriers for independence, mayne, I set the tone
    They probably won't 'preciate me till I'm gone

    (You been so good to me)

    The game's been good to me
    My fans been good to me
    The money been good to me
    G-O-D been good to me

    You all I need
    You all I need
    You all I need
    You all I need

    (You been so good to me)
