I sold my soul to the devil, and the price was cheap A yo it's cold on this level cause it's twice as deep But you don't hear me, ignorance is blisning and so on Sometimes it's better to be taught dumb Shall I go on You don't want no real, what the deal is a mystery How is it I can live and make history If you don't see it then it, wasn't ment for you to see If you wasn't born wit' it then, it wasn't ment for you to be But you can't blame me for not wantin' to be hound lock down in a cell wit' a soul gettin' dwelled This is hell, go get the devil and get me the key but can't be worst than the curse that was given ta me It's what I live for, you take away that and I'm gone There's a difference between, doin' wrong and being wrong and that ain't right Just keep it fair baby Put me in the year, and I'll take it there baby Yes
I'm a flow regardless because I'm an artist until I'm trapped I'ma continue to hit he hardest whether I scrap or rap Give me death but you ain't my friend I see it in your eyes, you contemplate my end You waitin' for that bin in the road, where you were told that you would go, when you were old and if you died young, it was told So what the dilly, what it was worth Think back 26 years, be like what of his birth What if it was a miscarriage and I never existed Have I given something that have been taken away you would of missed it Didn't know, did I persisted? It was the call of the wild I'm here to say what's in my heart, and you call it a style Don't put it in the cage, don't mistreat it You say you hunger for knowledge, here it is eat it Another soul completed is another thought captured Let me do my thing I got it locked wit' this rap shit

Didn't know a dog with rabies was up in the cut, nigga? Now that you finally findin' out what this shit means I'm at the precinct, 116th Run up in there Open up my jacket "You muthafuckers lookin' for me?"
