A military mind nigga
A military mind mean money
A criminal grind nigga
A criminal grind mean hustle, you know

We tradin' war stories, we Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes
We tradin' war stories, we Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes

Now can your mind picture? A thug nigga drinkin' hard liquor
This ghetto life has got me catchin' up to God quicker
Who would figure that all I need was a hair trigger
Semi-automatic Mack 11 just to scare niggaz

Pardon my thug poetry, but suckers is born everyday
And fear of man grow on trees
Criminal ties for centuries, a legend in my own rhymes
So niggaz whisper when they mention

Machiavelli was my tutor, Donald Goines, my father figure
Moms sent me to go play with the drug dealers
Hits fall, we thug niggaz and we came in packs
Every one of niggaz strapped sippin' on 'nac

In the back, my AR-15
Thuggin' till I die, these streets got me cravin' thorazine
My lyrics are blueprints to money makin'
Fat as that ass that honey shakin'

My niggas tradin' war stories, we Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes
We tradin' war stories, we Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes

I bust a trey-trey, buggin' an' shit, they call it overthuggin' and shit
But I was just a younger nigga, gettin' older and lovin' this shit
But what was I doin' in this place?
To the fakes without a pistol in the first, facin' termination in the worst

But I figured to play the wall to watch all these
Playa hatin' niggaz position for I could see 'em all
Made it up out of there, lucky to be here to tell you
But it'll never be a repeat people I'm tryin' to tell you

Now picture the scenery, I'm thugged out smokin' greenery
Considered a B.G., but I'm off in this game somethin' D-P
My eyes only see deez, that's why I'm young and burnt out
Learned the know how, well how to do now, by 18 turned out

And why I do it the ridin' and smokin' collidin' with foes
In the worst place y'all shouldn'ta fucked with us
In the first place y'all real O.G.'s, droppin' game to the youngsters
Y'all don't want no funk 'cause
Y'all be the next in the long line of war stories

We tradin' war stories, we Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes
We tradin' war stories, we Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes

I breaks 'em off with this gangsta war story tale
Stackin' loot up in the coupe that I protect with a Mack 12
Slap my clip in the chamber, fool, your life's in danger
No one will remain when I come through dumpin' insane

Call me Bo-wl of Major Pain, gun-slang and movin 'caine
I be the nigga that's pullin' the trigga
And dumpin' the hollow points in your brain
Mo' bigger balls that Ru Paul, Thug Life ain't a ball
We bust that ass up against the wall

Never been no sign for men call
How we bucks 'em down on the way to the ground
Ain't nuttin but the hog in me
Bust off his dildo, killin' up hoes and keep mobbin' G
It ain't no calling the funk off, don't be funking with my sawed off
Bust they dirty-ass drawers off and had them bitch niggaz hauled off

We tradin' war stories, we Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes
We tradin' war stories, we Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes

My whole family been raised, on shit that ain't okay
Ain't nuttin' on this earth will make a nigga like me stay
I'm reminiscin' and catchin' flashbacks when niggas ran up
In my house and I was too young, to try to blast back
What happened then? No one would tell me since I was three

Heard that God took my peoples, now they livin' somewhere free
But fuck that, you got what's mines and I want that
Never drop my guard, been on the squad, since ways back
And now I'm sittin', holdin' in anger because my parents' missin'
Thuggin' Immortal, we got some war stories for ya

Now look at me straight Outlaw Immortal
Never gave a fuck 'cause I was nobody's daughter
Outlawin' from my tits to my clits, don't try to figure
'Cause the murderous tendencies of my mind can't be controlled, nigga

So who's the bigger, who's the quickest killer?
Would ya try to trip with my finger on that 9 milla?
When I got cha on kay-nine-fourths, prayin' to God
As your life goes back and forth

We tradin' war stories, Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes
We tradin' war stories, Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes

We tradin' war stories, Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes
We tradin' war stories, Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes

We tradin' war stories, Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes
We tradin' war stories, Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes

We tradin' war stories, Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes
We tradin' war stories, Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes

We tradin' war stories, Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes
We tradin' war stories, Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes

We tradin' war stories, Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes
We tradin' war stories, Outlawz on the rise
Jealous niggaz I despise, look in my eyes

War stories nigga, ha ha ha, what players do
Thug Life, Outlaw Immortalz, motherfuckin' Tupac A K A Makaveli
Can you feel me? Just so you know, it's on Death Row
My niggaz love that shit, Dramacydal in this motherfucker, he he he
Yea nigga, shout out to my niggaz Fatal and Felony
C-Bo, the bald head nut, what? You know what time it is?
