I really miss my homies. Even though you’re gone away, I know you’re in a better place. And I hope to see you soon someday. I’m so alone. How could it be? Take a minute to smile for the dead.
Some Gs never change. Why do soldiers ride for your name? A lotta soldiers done died and a lotta mothers done cried. So just leave it vain. The ghetto persons that lost their loved ones to these ghetto scandals. I miss my homies even though they’ve gone away.

Master P has got heroin and cocaine Some call him the dope man. He went from cheddar to cheese. From powder to cooked rocks. From the ghetto to the lakes. Slangin’ thangs in the hood to move his records to 50 states. He’s got more work than the mayor do. He’s got more hoe’s than Macys sell muthafuckin Girbauds.
Relentlessly Master P keep the muthafuckin party jumpin’. For putting the south on the map like Eazy-E did Compton. No Limit Soldiers are mercenary killas that keep one up in the chamber. They’ve got it made like Special Ed. They got more vapors than Biz Markie ever had because they are after dead presidents like Eric B & Rakim. They plan to hypnotize the rap industry like Biggie did. No Limit is going federal like E-40. They will shock the world like Silkk. No Limit is and was putting fools on hold like En Vogue. They used to slang white ice cream. Now it’s platinum and gold.

Without no business
It’s over for you before you get out the door

Huh nigga thats all on you to be on top of yearn
But by the time they finish fuckin you, bitch you gon learn

Make sure yo contract is escilatin’ otherwise them bitches will rape ya
Makin big promises on how it’s gonna be all good just and be patient
Yo album done came and gone and you stupid ass still waitin

Fuck how good you rap it ain’t shit without yo business
I rate this single 5/5*****!!
