It's

the nigga ya love to hate with a new song So
what really goes on Nothing
but a come-up but, ain't that a bitch They
hate to see a young nigga rich But
I refuse to switch even though Cause
I can't move to the snow Cause
soon as y'all get some dough Ya
wanna put a white bitch on your elbow Moving
out your neighborhood But
I walk through the ghetto and the flavor's good Little
kids jumping on me But
you you, wanna be white and corny Living
way out "nigger
go home" spray-painted on your house Trying
to be white or a jew But
ask yourself who, are they to be equal to Get?
the hell out Stop
being an uncle tom you, little sell-out House
nigga scum Give
something back to the place where you made it from Before
you end up broke Fuck
around and get your ghetto pass revoked I
ain't saying no names you, know who you are You
little punk be, true to the game Break

When


you first start rhyming It
started off slow and then you start climbing But
it wasn't fast enough I guess So
you gave your other style a test You
was hardcore hip-hop Now
look at yourself boy, you done flip-flopped Giving
our music away to the mainstream Don't
you know they ain't down with the team They
just sent they boss over Put
a bug in your ear and now you crossed over On
mtv but they don't care They'll
have a new nigga next year You
out in the cold No
more white fans and no more soul And
you might have a heart attack When
you find out the black folks don't want you back And
you know what's worse You?
was just like the nigga in the first verse Stop
selling out your race And
wipe that stupid-ass smile off your face Niggas
always gotta show they teeth Now
I'm a be brief Be
true to the game Break

A


message to the oreo cookie Find
a mirror and take a look g, Do
you like what you see But?
you're quick to point the finger at me You
wanna be the big fish you, little guppy Black
man can't be no yuppie You
put on your suit and tie and your big clothes You
don't associate with the negroes You
wanna be just like jack But
jack is calling you a nigga behind your back So
back off genius I
don't need you to correct my broken english You
know that's right You
ain't white So
stop holding your ass tight Cause
you can't pass So
why you keep trying to pass With?
your black ass Mister
big But
in reality you're, shorter than a midge You
only got yourself to blame Get
a grip oreo, and be true to the game Be



true to the game
