  • [Intro: AZ]
    Yes sir! Another year, ha, ha, ha!
    Toast ya glass please, this is champagne
    You know what it is..
    I love when the music sound so vibrant
    So refreshin', alright let's get down to business

    [Verse 1: AZ]
    It's a - thin line between love & hate
    And due time, a stable mind separates what's fake
    It's Two kind of paper takers, make no mistake
    You got those that touch a little
    Then there's those that rape
    I've been embraced, got a face that the game can't shake
    I'm known well like a Coke scale, my name hold weight
    Impeccable taste, medallions in symmetrical shape
    Since '88 been wildin' wit a Electrical tape
    Was a Ape to that street rap presented itself
    Who could beat that, so like Lennox I surrendered my belts
    I was felt wit five funnies, my cars was dealt
    Wit my money and subconscious, I was God himself
    The weed helped, but overall I was so Hip-Hop
    Certified as a cool guy to be so hott!
    Verbalized like 2Pac, wit a East-Coast bop
    Then the shit just changed, had to switch up lanes
    Past predicted the future, though the present exist
    Poetic wiser, I'm Commonsutter, it's a heavenly bliss
    Schooled as a little dude, only dealt as diss
    But you know 'em people is sick and they medicine mix
    So 50 it's only a run, enjoy this here
    Matter of fact you ain't done, enjoy this year
    And uh it's only fair I make this clear
    You could neva fuck wit me, so don't neva fuck wit me
    If money makes the man then on Iraq land
    Saddam statue will still stand on top of the sand
    You a fan so overall respect my hand
    Cuz I can see what's goin' on, I respect your scam
    And we can toast to the life that showed us both
    That trials and tribulation only bring forth growth
    And when we bhost, you could bet who be felt the most
    So live your life 'til the reaper approach..
