Inspectah Deck – U Wanna Be lyrics

[Intro: Inspectah Deck]

There comes a time when you'll be stripped of your stripes

Take away the accolades, and look yourself in the face, you know

No lactose, just a reality dose


We keep it true, yeah, yo


[Chorus: Inspectah Deck]

You wanna be large, you wanna be hard


You wanna be God, you're not quite
You wanna be thugs, you wanna be Bloods

You wanna be loved, is that right?

You wanna be friends, you wanna be him

You wanna be them, you act like

You wanna be live, you wanna be fly

You wanna be high, I gotta be me



[Inspectah Deck]
Born July 6th, 3:23



With a finger for the world up in front of me
Had the gall, had a ball, but ain't have shit

Played the hall, played some ball, average black kid

With a passion to live and see the lands
Without sacrificin' my soul or meet demands


I strive for what I live for, me and my Clan

And searched for provocative plans to feed the Fam

This is no act or mirage, never rocked a corsage
Spanned the globe on roam, nobody God

See everybody's a thug, everybody sold drugs


Everybody rocked an ice cold mug

Most killas I know, is either six feet below

Or lost in the system, doin' years in the hole

But your feet not big enough to fit in my shoes, nigga
It's the changin' of the God, witness the move




[Chorus]



[Inspectah Deck]

Far from the inventor, like Notorious said

But I'm quick to pull my sword and it's off with your head

I never was a dick rider, you never see me try to

Be like that dude, soft, plus, he wack too
Put the money on wood, make it all good


Then make arrangements, I'm bringin' my hood


Pushin' four wheel motion with the sounds and tints
In suspense, ya'll snake eyes bounce off the tents

See, they rent cars and jewels to fool you

In the video, actin' like, that's how they really flow

But only a low percentage know

Only five every hundred make dough, they say so

Oh, you got a rollie plus a six point o

But no, you're not authentic, you're just for show

Lookin' for the next free ride to latch on

In the short amount of time, watch the world catch on that



[Chorus]



[Inspectah Deck]


Money back guarantee, if it's not quality
And that's who I be

This here's official, if not, I wouldn't hit you

I gotta be true, I take offense to the issue

Not your typical rituals I chant
Givin' the chance, watch it rain like an Indian dance


State it like Abe, at Gettysburg, bet he's heard

Through galaxies, aliens stuck on every word


Livin' legend, veteran known to set trend
Flex powers on the mic, like the X-Men


Destined to hit the hall of fame, quick
But ya'll kick the same lame shit


Kick 'em in the groin, for playin' both sides of the coin
Now who will be the next click you join

I stand on my own two feet, truly unique

That's the difference between you and me, you wanna be



[Chorus 2X]
