Konvict, konvict, stand up, salute, Devon Stephens
Up front is in the building, bless y'all
It's the Konvict album, yeah, y'all done *** up now
I got money now nigga, I got enough money to free all the stars
(It's a shake down, oh)

He ain't lyin', if you sellin' we ain't buyin'
If it's scattered on your block, you best believe we supplyin'
From a *** down to a half a pound, a quarter to a dime
Tryin' to own a piece of Brooklyn like my *** John Klein

Hey, you know me I'm known to rock with
Roll through your spot with, post up block with
Hey, you know me I'm on the block with
Non-stop with, violate and get popped with

Hey, so I suggest you keep steppin' on me
'Cause you will rarely find me without my weapon on me
Got the whole konvict squad bettin' on me
And now the dots around the world are now connectin' on me

Hey now, a bunch of gangstas strapped
So make a way now, when they come wavin' them ***
You know to lay down and give 'em all you got
'Cause it's a shake down, oh

Hey now, a bunch of gangstas strapped
So make a way now, when they come wavin' them ***
You know to lay down and give 'em all you got
'Cause it's a shake down, oh

'Cause it's a shake down, oh
'Cause it's a shake down, oh
'Cause it's a shake down, oh
Do I make myself clear, oh, hey, hey, hey

A fleet of European cars in my driveway
[Incomprehensible]
My shorty ridin' shotgun bumpin' Sadie
Toes hangin' out the window loadin' up my army

You know I keep a bad *** breathin' on me
Also known to have no business with no beefin' on me
And won't hesitate to cock it when them people on me
So guess what, no exceptions to you neither homie

You know I got that African connection
Locked up in a facility correction
I'm a star, style changed hangin' like blaow
Black royals of front, we in the place now

Hey now, a bunch of gangstas strapped
So make a way now, when they come wavin' them ***
You know to lay down and give 'em all you got
'Cause it's a shake down, oh

Hey now, a bunch of gangstas strapped
So make a way now, when they come wavin' them ***
You know to lay down and give 'em all you got
'Cause it's a shake down, oh

'Cause it's a shake down, oh
'Cause it's a shake down, oh
'Cause it's a shake down, oh
Do I make myself clear, oh

Now I'ma show you how to break this down
He'll back show you how to shake this down
First *** to create this sound
Can't believe it took a konvict to shake this town

Dippin' European linen with the V-net
Diamond studded VVS, no less
Kunta Kinte bracelet, lit up the whole set
My *** we on deck, man believe it's no sweat

Need street credibility who you go get
I give you that credibility for the right check
Keep your future on the shelf, quiet where it's best kept
Don't want them upfront shooters bringin' red light

Hey now, a bunch of gangstas strapped
So make a way now, when they come wavin' them ***
You know to lay down and give 'em all you got
'Cause it's a shake down, oh

Hey now, a bunch of gangstas strapped
So make a way now, when they come wavin' them ***
You know to lay down and give 'em all you got
'Cause it's a shake down, oh

'Cause it's a shake down, oh
'Cause it's a shake down, oh
'Cause it's a shake down, oh
Do I make myself clear, oh
