Verse One: Ice Cube

Here's a little somethin' bout a n***a like me
Never shoulda been let out the penititary
Ice Cube would like ta say
That I'm a crazy mutha fucka from around the way
Since I was a youth I smoked weed out
Now I'm the mutha fucka that ya read about
Takin' a life or two
That's what the hell I do you don't like how I'm livin
Well f**k you!
This is a gang and I'm in it
My man Dre'll f**k you up in a minute
With a right left, right left you're toothless
And then you say goddamn they ruthless!
Everwhere we go they say [damn!]
N W A's fu***n' up tha program
And then you realize we don't care
We don't just say no, we to busy sayin' yeah!
To drinkin' straight out the eight bottle
Do I look like a mutha fuckin role model?
To a kid lookin' up ta me
Life ain't nothin but b*****s and money.
Cause I'm tha type o' n***a that's built ta last
If ya f**k wit me I'll put a foot in ya a**
See I don't give a f**k 'cause I keep bailin
Yo, what the f**k are they yellin

Chorus:

Gangsta, Gangsta! That's what they're yellin
"It's not about a salary, it's all about reality" - krs One
Gangsta, Gangsta! That's what they're yellin
"Hopin you sophisticated motherfuckers hear what I have to say"

Verse Two: Ice Cube

When me and my posse stepped in the house
All the punk-a** ni***z start breakin out
Cause you know, they know whassup
So we started lookin for the b*****s with the big butts
Like her, but she keep cryin
"I got a boyfriend" b***h stop lyin
Dumb-a** hooker ain't nuttin but a dyke
Suddenly I see, some ni***z that I don't like
Walked over to em, and said, "Whassup?"
The first n***a that I saw, hit em in the jaw
Ren started stompin em, and so did E
By that time got rushed by security
Out the door, but we don't quit
Ren said, "Let's start some shit!"
I got a shotgun, and here's the plot
Takin ni***z out with a flurry of buckshots
Boom boom boom, yeah I was gunnin
And then you look, all you see is ni***z runnin
And fallin and yellin and pushin and screamin
And cussin, I stepped back, and I kept bustin
And then I realized it's time for me to go
So I stopped, jumped in the vehicle
It's like this, because of that who-ride
N. W. A. Is wanted for a homicide
Cause I'm the type of n***a that's built to last
F**k wit me, I'll put my foot in your a**
See I don't give a f**k, cause I keep bailin
Yo, what the f**k are they yellin?

Chorus:

Gangsta, Gangsta! That's what they're yellin
"It's not about a salary, it's all about reality" - krs One
Gangsta, Gangsta! That's what they're yellin
"He'll tell you exactly how he feel, and don't want a fuckin thing back"

Verse Three: Ice Cube

Homies all standin around, just hangin
Some dope-dealin, some gang-bangin
We decide to roll and we deep
See a n***a on Dayton's and we creep
Real slow, and before you know
I had my shotgun pointed in the window
He got scared, and hit the gas
Right then, I knew I has to smoke his a**
He kept rollin, I jumped in the bucket
We couldn't catch him, so I said f**k it
Then we headed right back to the fort
Sweatin all the b*****s in the biker shorts
We didn't get no play, from the ladies
With six ni***z in a car are you crazy?
She was scared, and it was showin
We all said "Fuck you bitch!" and kept goin
To the hood, and we was fin to
Find somethin else to get into
Like some p***y, or in fact
A bum rush, but we call it rat pack
On a n***a for nuttin at all
Ice Cube'll go stupid when I'm full of eight ball
I might stumble, but I won't lose
Now I'm dressed in the county blues
Cause I'm the type of n***a that's built to last
If you f**k wit me, I'll put my foot in your a**
I don't give a f**k, cause I keep bailin
Yo, what the f**k are they yellin?

Interlude: Ice Cube, Dr. Dre

[Wait a minute, wait a minute, cut this shit]
{Man whatcha gonna do now?}
"What we're gonna do right here is go way back"
[How far you goin back?]
"Way back"
"As we go a lil somethin like this" - Slick Rick

Here's a lil gangsta, short in size
A t-shirt and Levi's is his only disguise
Built like a tank yet hard to hit
Ice Cube and Eazy E cold runnin s**t

Verse Four: Eazy E, mc Ren

Well I'm Eazy E the one they're talkin about
N***a tried to roll the dice and just crapped out
Police tried to roll, so it's time to go
I creeped away real slow and jumped in the six-fo'
Wit the "Diamond in the back, sun-roof top"
Diggin the scene with the gangsta lean
Cause I'm the E, I don't slang or bang
I just smoke motherfuckers like it ain't no thang
And all you b*****s, you know I'm talkin to you
"We want to fuck you Eazy!" I want to f**k you too
Cause you see, I don't really take no s**t
[So let me tell you motherfuckers who you're fuckin with]
Cause I'm the type of n***a that's built to last
If you f**k wit me, I'll put my foot in your a**
I don't give a f**k, cause I keep bailin
Yo, what the f**k are they yellin?

Chorus:

Gangsta, Gangsta! That's what they're yellin
"It's not about a salary, it's all about reality" - krs One
Gangsta, Gangsta! That's what they're yellin
"He'll fuck up you and yours, and anything that gets in his way"

Gangsta, Gangsta! That's what they're yellin
"It's not about a salary, it's all about reality" - krs One
Gangsta, Gangsta! That's what they're yellin
"He'll just call you a low-life m**********r, and talk about your
Funky ways"
