    Hey hey hey
    What you got to say

    Verse 1
    Fast *****es fast cars money and fame
    this rap **** is just like the '90's dope game
    Before sold out shows rocked and hoes jocked
    it was all about the 'hood and that Foe Hundred block
    A few scraps as a puppy dog
    you had to be down
    to roam that infamous neighborhood
    where *****s wore the crown
    It was on every morning from Manchester to Century
    BG's walkin' in packs to elementary
    afterschool some had 'hood patrol
    and watched deals on the corner
    while others had skills and hittin' drills in Pop Warner
    The unforgettable good old days how it used to be
    'foe *****s made the transition from a jock to a G
    now the streets is nice but the police is thick
    'cause *****s sick and mo' murders
    committed than a horror flick
    but whatever happen rappin' or not
    it's the same for me
    it's still I.N.G. foe L.I.F.E.
    so...

    Chorus
    Hey hey heyy
    What you got to say
    Inglewooooood
    Inglewood Swangin'

    Verse 2
    The city's full of cheddar like a cheese pizza
    known for senoritas and Inglewood Familias
    The landmarks in the 'hood is legendary
    the fabulous Forum, the Court and the Library
    The city hall is scandalous to the average tax payer
    so the town done ****ed around and voted me the mayor
    had G's that put they life on the line and some died
    but thanks to this rap we on the map worldwide
    And as far as race go we probably even these days
    about 50% black and the rest is esays
    so we spin and we win up and down Market St.
    ***** I'm a million dollar ***** and still shop the Swapmeet
    what I'm in right now probably ain't worth a hundred bucks
    a beany T-shirt khakis and a fresh pair of Chucks
    That's a real ***** foe you that's me so don't knock it
    I got everything I need plus money in my pocket
    So...

    Chorus

    Bridge
    I.N.G. foe L.I.F.E. (4X)

    Verse 3
    It seem like yesterday I was the average Y.G.
    and at the blink of a eye became a household MC
    From the land of sunshine gold D's and palm trees
    to Japanese screamin' for a ***** overseas
    But I gotta think about O.G's I got game from
    remain the same ***** and can't forget where I came from
    We all know money make the world go 'round
    so I give back to my town and put a few *****s down
    I keep my enemies close 'cause they salt shakers
    mad because I travel state to state
    and get paid like the Lakers
    Used to like the Magic man when I was a itty bitty
    but now Mack and Shaq can go half and buy the city
    So...

    Chorus

    Bridge
