originally*appeared as a b-side to cube's "check yo self" single 24

with an l 24, years old and I got life in this motherfucker 24...

with an l as I bail through the concrete shit, is kinda deep Deep
deeper, than atlantis you, got to know who the man is L
a.better. known as pelican's bay The
ghetto bird's got the word from the stool pigeon A
bird in the hand can't beat a chicken There
ain't no warden (shit) Just
broken glass fucking up my jordans Twice
upon the time in the projects I
done got jacked for my rolex But
I keep going let, it pass Cause
the swap meet got a sale on ski masks And
my little homie kevin Been
carjacking since '87 (really doe) L
a.is. like a jail cell And
I got 24 with an l "get

in that cell nigger"(repeat, 8x) Now

I, made a little money good, But
I still want to live in the hood But
buying new fly shit Is
just like inviting ants to a picnic There's
just too many sets And
now I'm getting those kidnap threats But
who wanna get wet Cause?
I'll soak ya you, think I'm fat like oprah All
I got is a little piece of nothing And
now you want to jack all the sudden Rahter
have me face down on the floor Instead
of that devil you work for Motherfucking
coward And
clowning my man cause he wants to go to howard Now
I got a strap when I bail Through
the hood 24, with an l "get

in that cell nigger", (repeat 8x) 24

years but, see I got life Sorry
mike it, does matter if you're black or white Cause
I'm up against the black and white They
spread my legs and grab my nuts tight Niggas
keep hitting me up And
bitches try to get a drop of nut Asking
me to dick this So
they can blow up throw, up from the morning sickness Keep
my shoulder on the wall like the county Cause
you buster-ass niggas can't clown me South
of pee go that's, where we go Deep
in a regal desert, eagle Sitting
on my lap like a bitch with a gat Westside's
on the map So
if you want to scrap or even drop shells 24
with an l "get

in that cell nigger", (repeat 12x)
