  • I was born in a human body, I’m deadly and dangerous
    The way I decrease life quality is outrageous
    But you don’t gotta worry, I’m not contagious
    I’m genetic, I travel through your family for ages
    I could live in yo daughter, I could live in yo son
    If you smoke cigarettes, I could live in yo lungs
    I can develop in yo stomach and be that small
    But I grow to the size of a basketball
    Now you can ignore me and try to pass it on
    You’ll be a statistic, in the casket gone
    I could be a sharp pain that you feel in yo spine
    I can be a brain tumor on the back of yo mind
    I’ll even be in yo food if you eatin that swine
    Don’t go to the doctor so you never catch me in time
    I done cause some strong men to lose they strength
    Even cause some pretty women to lose they breasts
    Only God know the cure and to whom he bless
    Is the chosen, he choose the best
    I’m a physical enemy, here to bring miserable treachery
    I can affect him, her, they, you or them and me
    But one small woman gotta checkup randomly
    They burn me out of her body with chemotherapy
    If you come late I’ll deflate your energy
    Take all of your hair and erase your memory
    I can shorten your life if you livin it long
    Even took a black queen named Vivian Strong
    If you don’t go to the doctor that mean you support me
    The only way to stop me is to catch me early
    And gangstas who think I can’t get in y'all body
    I even claimed the life of mobster John Gotti
    Have you had a checkup? If no is your answer
    Then let me introduce myself, my name is cancer

    He rides to it
    Don’t stress a lot
    Put protection on
    If he’s in your home

    The prettiest woman out here blows long in the wind
    Even sip when she wasn’t soft as her skin
    Teeth look like ivory, pleasant as a beach
    Breasts like 2 watermelons, ripe like a peach
    On the outside, sexy as can be
    But on the inside she’s infected with me
    She be up in every neighborhood, dead on the street
    Give you her phone number, give you head in the V
    And she don’t like condom, she sex it for free
    So if you ever met er get tested for me
    Every single day I add names to my dying list
    My epidemic is strong as an iron fist
    You should check your body fluids, that’s where I exist
    Can travel through saliva, I hope you like to kiss
    You can’t get rid of me, you can cry and wish
    It’s no denying this, science says
    He says I was born in Africa, but he’s a lying *****
    I was born in the laboratory, my father’s a scientist
    You can’t contact me if you walk in a bathroom
    Or if you talk to your classmate in your classroom
    You never see me coming, I’m smooth as a jazz tune
    Not airborne, I pass moves
    But you should make sure they clean the needle when you getting them tattoos
    I’m the reason the word positive means bad news
    Idiotic if you don’t believe in me
    Even took a great rapper named Eazy-E
    If you have a lot of sex you should have some condoms
    Cause you could live with me, ask Magic Johnson
    I enter your body with only one assumed mission
    That’s only to break down your immune system
    Become sick easy cuz you not immune
    And I can pass over through every open wound
    So make sure you put a Band-Aid on your cut
    Before you shake another man’s hands sayin wussup
    I’m physical and visible, you can’t feel me
    Medicine, I’m invincible, you can’t kill me
    AIDS is my name, don’t get it wrong
    It stands for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome
    (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome
    Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome)

    This drug addict named Raj is infected with my evil
    Got some new dope he wanna try with his people
    He said go ahead and try it, it’s some brand new diesel
    That’s when I found myself travelling through a needle
    Don’t even know what he getting into is a shame
    Tied his arm up and pump me right in his vein
    He had a lot of women, was living to play his life
    But he was married, he took me home to his wife
    Now she’s a carrier who carries on with me
    His wife had a baby, the baby was born with me
    And I hope that you wouldn’t take this song silly
    A lot of people infected, it’s a strong pity
    You got a jimmy hat? Then you should put on jimmy
    Let’s protect ourselves, we should all, really
    I’m tryna live long, won’t you live long with me?
    Suburbs to the city, sing this song with me

    He rides to it
    Don’t stress a lot
    Put protection on
    If he’s in your home

    He rides to it
    Don’t stress a lot
    Put protection on
    If he’s in your home

    He rides to it
    Don’t stress a lot
    Put protection on
    If he’s in your home
