Big Boi ft. Andre 3000 & Raekwon-Royal Flush

styles will change/
They say change is dange../
as a king standing on a terrace/
while his partner pointing up at the riflemen/
coward shootings, never know when your life will end/
then, live like there ain't no 'morrow/
and if one come, then this the motto/
now, put message in bottle/
you go to the nearest beach, and open yo' car door/
and walk to the place, where the sea meets the land/
yeah, it's easier to run the streets, than to walk in the sand/
hey, I'm talkin' young man/
As if chalk in my hand/
I will take ya'll lil' ass to school/
It's cool when the kids call me Sunny/
the hood calls me Stacks/
the B's call me Honey/
Hollywood calls me back/
Crack and I have alot in common/
We both come up in the eighties and we keep that bass pumpin/
Thats a nega..tive comparision/
that if you come up fortunate/
the street consider you lame/
I thought the name of the game/
was to have a better life,/
I guess it ain't, what a shame/
I don't slang/
never slung/
but I'm one/
with the slum/
that has a name, well fitting/
plenty g's getting/
no wonder why they call it the trap/
so watch your tail, and I'm not kidding/
no rats and mice/
would give advice/
they say you can paint and draw/
get outta here, go show them that we're more than slangin' raw/
that's when I broke into my Big Rube impression/
and I tried to enlighten, but that night I learned a lesson/
that the morals that you think you got, go out the window/
when all the other kids are fresh, and they got new Nintendo../
and your child is down on her knees/
prayin hard up to God for a Whopper with cheese/
do you 'B' hit the streets hard with a flare/
or do you 'A', go school for heatin and air/
dare make a honest living/
but make a crooked killin/
or do a bit of both until you holdin on a million/
you got one foot in, one foot out/
you put your left back in/
and the you shake it all about/
you do the hokey pokey til you turn your life around/
that's what it's all about/
3000, out/
