CHORUS
You say you a gangsta
But you neva pop nothin
You say you a wanksta
and you need to stop frontin

 

CHORUS
You say you're a gangster
But you've never shot anyone
You're really a fake gangster
and you need to stop pretending

You ain't a friend of mine,
You ain't no kin of mine,
What makes you think that I won't run up on you with the nine
We do this all the time
Right now we on the grind
So hurry up and cop and go we selling nicks and dimes
Shorty she so fine
I gotta make her mine
A ass like that gotta be one of kind
I crush 'em everytime
Punch 'em with every line
I'm fucking with they mind
I make 'em press rewind
They know they can't shine if I'm around the rhyme

Been on parole since '94 cause I commit the crimes
I said it in my line, I did it 3 to 9
The D's ran up in my crib

You know who dropping dimes

 

You aren't a friend of mine
and you're not related to me by blood
What makes you think that I won't run up on you with my tech nine gun?

We do this all the time
Right now, we're hustling (making money illegally)
So hurry up and buy and go reselling $5 and $10 bags of marijuana
That attractive woman is so beautiful
I have to make her mine
Buttocks like that are unique
My rap is superior
I punch the fake gangsters with every line
I'm playing with their minds
I make them press 'rewind' on the tape player

They know they can't impress anyone if I'm rhyming lyrics
I've been on parole since '94 because I committed crimes
I said it in my rapping, I did my time in prison
The police ran up in my house
You know who told them about my illegal activities

CHORUS 2
You say you a gangster
but you neva pop nothin
They say you a wankster
and you need to stop frontin
You go to the dealership
but you neva cop nothin
You been hustling a long time
and you ain't got nothin

 

CHORUS 2
You say you're a gangster
But you've never shot anyone
You're really a fake gangster
and you need to stop pretending
You go to the car dealership
but you never buy anything
You've been involved in illegal activities for a long time
and you don't have anything

Damn Homie, In high school you was the man homie
Fuck happened to you
I got the sickest vendetta when it come to the cheddar

Nigga you play with my paper, you gonna meet my berreta
Now shorty think Ima sweat her, sipping on a amareda
I'm hit once then deada, I know I can do betta
She look good but I know she after my cheddar
She tryna get in my pockets
Homie and I ain't gonna let her
Be easy, start some bullshit
You get your whole crew wet
We in the club doing the same ol' two step
Gorilla unit cause they say we bugged out
Cause we don't go nowhere without toast we thugged out

 

Unbelievable, friend - in high school you were the successful one
What the fuck (emphasis) happened to you?
I have the strongest vendetta when it comes to money
Black man, if you play with my money, you will meet my gun
Now the attractive woman thinks I'm after her, sipping on an Amaretto (almond) liquor
I'm hit once than deader, I know I can do better
She looks good but I know she's after my money
She's trying to get in my pockets
My friend and I aren't going to let her
Relax, because if you cause trouble
You and all of your friends will be shot with a lot of bullets

We're in the club doing the same dance
Gorilla unit because they say we are good dancers/acting strange
Because we don't go anywhere without making fun of other people, we're dressed in thug style

CHORUS 2

Me I'm no mobster
Me I'm no gangster
Me I'm no hitman me I'm just me, me
Me I'm no wankster
Me I'm no actor
But it's me you see on your tv
cause I hustle baby
This rap shit is so easy
I'm getting what you get for a brick to talk greasy
By any means, partner, I got to eat on these streets
If you play me close, for sure I'm gonna pop my heat
Niggas saying they going murder 50 how

We ride around with guns the size of Li'l Bow Wow
What you know about A-K's and A.R.15's
Equipped with night vision, shell catchers and inf beams, huh

 

CHORUS 2

Me I'm no mobster
Me I'm no gangster
Me I'm not paid to kill people, I'm just me, me
Me I'm no fake gangster
Me I'm no actor
But it's me you see on your TV
because I hustle baby
Rapping is so easy
I'm getting paid as much for rapping as you would get for selling a lot of drugs
By any means, partner, I have to eat on these streets
If you involve yourself in my business, I'm certainly going to shoot my gun
Black men are saying that they are going murder 50 Cent, but how?
We ride around with guns the size of a small dog
What do you know about A-K 47 and A.R.15 rifles
Equipped wit
h night vision, shell catchers and infrared laser beams?

CHORUS 2   CHORUS 2


Ferrari Italian sports car
on parole Out of prison before the end of the sentence, but still required to report regularly to the authorities
commit the crimes 50 Cent spent time in prison for drug dealing.
dropping dimes literally "making phone calls." Pay phones used to cost a dime, and the expression remains.
Nigga from "nigger." Considered extremely offensive in mainstream society, especially if used by non-blacks.
I'm hit once then deada
Well, that's what it sounds like, but it might not be what he said. Although "then deada" rhymes with vendetta, the meaning isn't entirely clear. "Hit" can mean shot, so it could mean that the girl is so attractive that seeing her is as powerful as being shot - like being "knocked out" by her beauty.
Gorilla Unit the name of 50 Cent's group
Li'l Bow Wow double meaning. Li'l Bow Wow is a teen rapper who got his nickname from Snoop Dogg ("bow wow" is what dogs say in English) However, in the video, 50 Cent puts his hand at knee height to show how big the guns are.
