[Hook - Ja Rule]
I got a hundred guns, a hundred clips, n***a I'm from New York (New York)
I got a semi-automatic that spits next time if you talk (you talk)
I got a hundred guns, a hundred clips, n***a I'm from New York (New York)
I got a semi-automatic that spits next time if you talk (you talk)
(And I know)

[Verse 1 - Ja Rule]
Yall ni***z is p***y, poonani, (Vagina)
Your (Monologue's) getting tired, now it's time to ride
You're print distrified, you're no longer desired
So take off them silly chains, put back on your wire
I'm on fire, holly dipped in octane
Let east coast bang, let west coast bang
And Rule gonna bring the ghetto gospel
To every 'hood possible, pushin through in the sky blue
Back with the gods you now, preferably the 4 pound
Slugs flyin at the speed of sound
Tryin to catch the ears of ni***z that's runnin their mouths
I might get my Brooklyn ni***z to run in your house
I don't really understand what the runnin's about
But we're hunters, we take pride in airin our prey out
Leavin 'em layed out, dead, in just a sport
'cause we ain't playin up here in New York

[Hook - Fat Joe]
I got a hundred guns, a hundred clips, n***a I'm from New York (New York)
And you can tell the way the homie spit, That n***a, I'm from New York (New York)
I got a hundred ways to make a grip, Yes, I'm from New York (New York)
And you can tell I get real ignorant, 'cause n***a, I'm from New York (New York)
(And this is how we do)

[Verse 2 - Fat Joe]
N***a I can see the coke in your nose
This ain't a movie, even he got his head blown on the globe
And I was just about to find god
But now that Ma$e is back, I think I'd much rather find a menage
And everybody talkin crazy how they're ak spit
But we know this investigatin, and they ain't spray s**t
Not me, I'm the truth homie, got the industry shook like
"Naw nigga, Joe gonna let 'em loose on me"
True Story, I'm bringin the T back
Even Roy Jones was forced to (Lean Back)
My n***a Dre said grind cook
Now we killin them Howard ni***z, who said I must of found Pun's rhyme book
Got b*****s on top of the Phantom
And the pinky got bling, like the ring around Saturn
Cook coke, crack, ni***z fiend for that
And you already know the x is where the team be at

[Hook - Jadakiss]
I got a hundred guns, a hundred clips, n***a I'm from New York (New York)
(Ruff Ryde), and (D-Block) and s**t, n***a f**k what you thought (you thought)
And you can't take s**t for granted, because life is too short (too short)
I got a hundred guns, a hundred clips, n***a I'm from New York
(Aha, and this is how we do)

[Verse 3 - Jadakiss]
I swear it couldn't be sweeter, Life's a b***h
Depending on how you treat her, you might get rich
It's guaranteed you gonna die, you might get missed
For maybe 2 or 3 hours, 'til they light their spliffs
And that coke will get you a long time
But when I let 'em know the dope is out, it's like America Online
Wise has awoken
And you know they say that you deserved it whenever you die with your eyes open
I still hold a title, because I'm in the hood like them little motorcycles
Stick up kids, hoppin out with them old rifles
Just doin s**t for nothin, it's so spiteful
Ha I'm just like you
Word that ni***z wanna murk you is in the air
A double shot of yak and the purple is in the air
And I'm not cocky, I'm confident
So when you tell me I'm the best it's a compliment

[Hook - Jadakiss]
I got a hundred guns, a hundred clips, n***a I'm from New York (New York)
(Ruff Ryde), and (D-Block) and s**t, n***a f**k what you thought (you thought)
And you can't take s**t for granted, because life is too short (too short)
I got a hundred guns, a hundred clips, n***a I'm from New York
(Aha, and this is how we do)
