Last time I checked B K was the hood
Last time I checked Bankhead was the hood
Last time I checked Harlem was the hood
But them rappers don't live there they live in Hollywood

Last time I checked long beach was the hood
Last time I checked Collipark was the hood
Last time I checked Compton was the hood
But them rappers don't live there they live in Hollywood

It ain't about where you at, it's about where you from
If you ever go back they might hit you with a drum
You a G somewhere else but at home you's a b***h
You can't go back to the hood 'cause they know you a snitch

P***y a** rappers fake a** n****s
Metaphorical gangsta studio killas
Everybody know you been lame
Tryna hide behind a chain and a nickname, that's a damn shame

Shoot ya videos gon' f**k ya groupie hoes
Talk dat s**t like da hood don't really know
Da hood despise you
I kick it wit da same n****s use to bully you in high school, n***a

Who you lyin' to, me? N***a
We can see straight through you like a x-ray, n***a
Me, I'm gorilla, you'd be me if you could
But I don't think you can 'cause they say you Hollywood

Last time I checked North Philly was hood
Last time I checked Carol city was hood
Last time I checked uptown was hood
But them rappers don't live there they live in Hollywood

Last time I checked H-town was the hood
Last time I checked Chi-town was the hood
Last time I checked Detroit was the hood
But them rappers don't live there they live in Hollywood

What if the same dude you looked up to was a rapper
And you realized he wasn't nothing like you
He ain't watch the s**t bubble, he ain't see the same struggle
He ain't never go what you been through
(Aight, I'm finna keep it real wit him now)

Real n****s don't feel dem, n****s
And on some real n***a s**t man I feel you, n****s
We like we miss Pac, we need to hear Dre, we miss Big N. W. A
Well what do they say

Well here go this and listen to that
Man somebody tell these labels that they artists are whack
Your cd's are Frisbees, we call 'em drink coasters
Wastin' all ya money on these flyer's and posters

Try to make it look good, buy you a sound scan
Is that the damn plan, well, here's a helping hand
You want some real sells, you need the damn hood
If you don't want to sell wood then don't go Hollywood

Last time I checked Carolinas was hood
Last time I checked Little Rock was hood
Last time I checked Nattown was the hood
But them rappers don't live there they live in Hollywood

Last time I checked Alabama was hood
Last time I checked Mississippi was hood
Last time I checked North Philly was hood
But them rappers don't live there they live in Hollywood

Oh, surrounded by security and police
But you claim gangsta bullshit p***y n***a show me
Nobody told me I don't see you run
You, ya whole entourage and all them damn guns

I ain't never seen a bunch of p***y n****s run around
Like they was killas when they know that they are hoes
All you n****s scary I can tell how you be lookin'
When you see a real n***a for sho'

We don't play games that's y'all punk n****s
And if the s**t was a game, we'd skunk you n****s
Playin' make me [Incomprehensible], punk you n****s
Backstreet boy let your record label pump you n****s

I ain't never seen a bunch of p***y n****s run around
Wit dat sack when they homeboys broke
They respected in the hood 'cause you gon' Hollywood
You can't have dat man and everyone knows, yeah, Hollywood

Last time I checked little Haiti was hood
Last time I checked zone 3 was the hood
Last time I checked the whole bay was the hood
But them rappers don't live there they live in Hollywood

Last time I checked Indiana was hood
Last time I checked man savanna was hood
Last time I checked Louisiana was hood
But them rappers don't live there they live in Hollywood
