    [Notorious B.I.G.: x4]
    I've been in this game for years, the name is The Animal

    [Notorious B.I.G.:]
    It's rules to this shit

    [Intro: AZ]
    Yea, enough respect
    The Bad Boy, Death Row, No Limit
    Rap-a-lot, Roc-a-fella, Cash-Money, Ruff Ryders
    So-So-Def, The Inc.
    And all the incarcerated Scarfaces from ghetto to ghetto
    Now introducin' to you a new Empire
    Quiet Money Records and Hush Management
    Formely presents - yours truly

    [Verse 1: AZ]
    I'm praised for wicked word-play
    Emerge from my Earth days
    Was boxed in the Bird Cage
    Now flock wit the Mermaids
    A shorty wop, 'til I copped then I turned age
    Saw it unfold, certain laws are untold
    Unsolved Mysteries, coffins is closed
    A Carnivore trickery, cautions your road
    Any slip-ups will be huntin' your shows
    So neva get it twisted nigga, keep an Iron Biscuit witcha
    Beast promoted, the street's is coded
    For the Naked eye times is too deep to notice
    Yea I specialize in rhymes, but I peep the bogus
    On every known level, I'ma stone cold Rebel
    Clothes is crisp, I rolls Gold the Wrist
    I was schooled how to tuck, hide and hold the fifth
    How to crush, cut, divide and supply the sniff
    So if the truth ain't need, then the truth can't be

    [Hook: Rap Samples]

    [NaS:]
    Peeps that's into Drug money, Market into rap

    [Notorious B.I.G.:]

    [Prodigy of Mobb Deep:]
    I'm fallin' and I can't turn back

    [Notorious B.I.G.:]

    [Prodigy of Mobb Deep:]
    I'm fallin' and I can't turn back

    [Verse 2: AZ]
    From base potter to that hard rock white
    We all hustlers, live that hard knock life
    Some get knocked, and their Hearts not right
    Cuffed up in the air, met this charge that night
    We all know that the Narc's ain't nice
    But.. that's the price when your bars ain't tight
    The Beast within release within, you get caught-up lose trust
    You don't speak to friends, you lose lust
    Rarely fuck, you just seekin' Sin
    You know ducks stay glizzly and love to get busy
    The stakes is high, the bench is long
    A few wakes niggaz cry, you live, you gon'
    If you escape, rules apply, kids is born
    And the game won't change, it's the same ol' game

    [Prodigy of Mobb Deep:]
    And I can't turn back

    [Verse 3: AZ]
    And my mind been back was since puffin' on the back-woods
    Clutchin' on them clappers, and duckin' from them crackers
    Neva been in Nappa, neva fuck wit no Rappers
    I'm so gon' wit it, but I'm so long winded
    Seen the worst, when I seen my first
    Body get caught, I was prolly this short
    The victim right beside me, stressed on the sidewalk
    But you neva seen a man cry, 'til you seen a man die
    The killer shots, the realer the co-op
    If you could realer, then it's similar plots
    Then if not, you won't familiar, you a squilar
    You no dilla you hot, fuck around get the whole block locked
    But neva me, I've been Boss playin', cookin' up sautéin'
    'Til I saw another dough, I had to force a nigga weighin'
    Now in all Black wit the Gloves and Hat
    I'm so deep in it, that I can't turn back
