[Chorus(2x):]
Stop, drop, shut 'em down open up shop
Oh, no
That's how Ruff Ryders roll

[Dmx:]

Ni***z wanna try, ni***z wanna lie
Then ni***z wonder why, ni***z wanna die
All I know is pain
All I feel is rain
How can I maintain, with madd s**t on my brain
I resort to violence, my ni***z move in silence
Like you don't know what are style is
New York ni***z the wildest
My ni***z is wit' it
You want it? Come and get it
Took it then we split it
You fu***n' right we did it
What the f**k you gonna do, when we run up on you
Fu***n' wit' the wrong crew, don't know what we goin' thru
I'ma have ta show ni***z how easily we blow ni***z
When you find out there's somemore n****s, that's runnin with your ni***z
Nothin' we can't handle, break it up and dismantle, light it up like a candle
Just cause I can't stand you
Put my s**t on tapes, like you bussin' grapes
Think you holdin weight? Then you haven't met the Apes

[Chorus(2x)]

Is ya'll ni***z crazy?
I'll buss you and be swazy
Stop actin' like a baby, mind your business lady
Nosy people get it too, when you see me spit at you
You know I'm tryin' ta get rid of you
Ya I know it's pitiful
That's how ni***z get down
Watch why ni***z spit round
Make ya'll ni***z kiss ground, just for talkin' s**t clown
Oh you think it's funny then you don't know me money
It's about to get ugly, f**k it dog I'm hungry
I guess you know what that mean, come up off that green
Five ni***z or a fiend, don't make it a murder scene
Give a dog a bone, leave a dog alone
Let a dog roam and he'll find his way home
Home of the brave, my home is a cage
And yo I'ma slave til' my home is a grave
I'ma pull paper, it's all about the papers
B*****s talkin' paper then how they wanna rape us

[Chorus(2x)]

Look what you dun started,
Asked for it, you got it
Had it, should have shot it
Now your dearly departed
Get at me dog, did I rip s**t with this one here I flip s**t
Ni***z know when I kick s**t
It's gonna be some slick s**t
What was that look for, when I walked in the door
Oh you thought you was raw, boom not anymore
Cause now you on the floor, wishin you never saw me walk
Through that door, with that 4 4
Now it's time for bed
Two more to the head, got the floor red
Yea that nigga's dead
Another unsolved mystery, It's goin' down in history
Ni***z ain't never did s**t to me
B***h a** ni***z can't get to me
Gots to make the move, got a point to prove
Got a make'em grove, got'em all like ooh
So to the next time, you hear this n***a ryhme
Try to keep your mind, on gettin p***y and crime

[Chorus(1x)]
