[Intro - Obie talking]
Yeah! [echo], uh
Let ya'll ni***z know me
Yeah, woo!

Eleven, fourteen, seventy-seven a n***a entered
Big lips, popped out placenta
Momma ain't breastfeed, had no pop neither
Pop leaves s**t but a name - Obie
Elementary homie that's how it started
In garbage, retarded, gainin that heart
F**k ni***z, claimin they hard, a n***a come home touched
My motherfuckin momma bangin me harder
"Nigga take your ass out their and fight for tomorrow"
That's what she told me, "little punk, blame that on your father"
So I had no choice, n***a pick up a brick
Split a motherfucker's s**t for tryin to f**k with the kid
Get a little older, hair on my d**k, now I'm curious
Ni***z on the corner gettin money rockin jewelry
Allowance, n***a that ain't man s**t
Cowards, n***a that ain't man s**t
I had to prove to myself
How these ni***z same age as me calculatin this wealth
So I got me a clique and ni***z what?
Workin one sixteenth, like "nigga we can clean up"

[Chorus - 2X]
Follow my life, homie from start 'til now
Only my motherfuckin momma n***a holds me down
And Lord knows all this s**t that I done put her through
I speak through her straight to you, motherfuckers

[Skit - Obie talking]
Two for one, here, here take this, two for one
Quit switching dicks, holla at me, see you f**k with

[Verse 2:]
Summer '94, I'm gettin a little dough
Taller than my momma, so I'm listenin to her nose
I'm listenin to them hoes scream "O!"
And I'm listenin to them O's go chop!
P-Funk, Joe and me pumpin on the block, summertime
I call her auntie, she cop three at a time
Throw a extra bump bringin cline
I'm so involved with the grind, I'm losin my mind
F**k a steady job, I'm tryin
I steady mob, I'm dyin in this game, I ain't lyin
Sellin so much coke forgettin it's a crime
Flyin down I-75, pocket full of dimes
Give a f**k about the radar on me [police sirens]
Bumpin Big or Pac, yo n***a who tryin me?

[Skit - Notorious B. I. G. 's +Big Poppa+ plays in background]
[Cop] - Get off the god damn truck!
[Obie Trice] - f**k you, yo I ain't did s**t
[Cop] - Put your f*****g hands in the air!
[Obie Trice] - b***h!

[Chorus - 2X]

[Outro - Obie talking (echo)]
Yeah, all my of life
Only my momma know
Obie.. Obie Trice.. Shady and it's crazy, motherfuckers
