QUALITY CONTROL Its’ funny how you don’t believe in logic Your profits is only based on whats up in your pocket Caramelo colour skin tone my composite Consider how my caravan stomp thru your province Tell me where your district at Watch how I piss on that Don’t give a fuck about the place where you rest your head Throroughbreed You can see it in the stance that I conquer 1st class whippings for them niggas who imposters The truth holders Who want proof that we soldiers Notice how the hand slow grip around the holster Upholster your front lawn with your fragments A closed casket for living drastic You rat bastards Feel like im back where im stared Fucking up your couch and your carpet Stepping on your carcass Blindfolded niggas wanna cross it Let em go approach the line We bringing madness Quality control. And that’s how it goes Things said things ain’t never gone be the same That’s why the game is horrendous For wack emcees You can pay to play and take it to another degree But you ain’t never generating respect Listen the balance is off There’s been a rift in the culture The tides done shift So when I rip you will notice the livest shit Bottom line we have reached the vertical peak Speech used to be a weapon to teach Im so calm complete Concisely command the fleet This new era looking like they misguided sheep What ever happen to original thought Something you brought to the table Niggas be coming soft and unstable… They whole rap diagram fables Cut em off from the source Hang em by they cables Snatch em outta they skin And let em pretend They trying to offend And we trying to win That’s why we bringing that Quality control And that’s how it goes Do you believe in self or you just tryna chase benefits Simple shit taken outta context… See you cant even tell a nigga that they he wack no more Cause that emotion get hurt Prolly rocking a purse Come from a time where you speak your mind Stand firm never fall Same rebel With the same cause It’s like a brand new rendition of rhyme With no position in mind Only condition is to spit with conviction You see I got that sickness And now they wanna try and go and find how it’s so convincing My regimen is handling business On a regular basis Stay away from them smiling faces Or them yes men type call em basket cases Them muthafuckas who be in your private spaces You let em get a little bit closer And now they tryna take advantage of the situate Time to go and regulate… Quality control. And that’s how it goes
For Nothing 04:29
FOR NOTHING Okay i’m slicker this year I’m slicker this year Got the fans hands stuck up in the atmosphere Time ticking on the question like we done been here Now we done saw that came thru and conquered Planet on the flatline searching for the basic essentials Why they selling game with no credentials Call it what it is if you aint’ go much They dropping bombs all up in your area bust The cannon if can if you can’t then clutch Your precious nightmares and embrace the dust Racing to a future that is hazy Surrounded by the maybe’s No petals on the daises The situation crazy For nothing Now lets go into detail See we fail cause we don’t even like our own kind Now when’s the last time that you tried to extend Your hand as a friend to another brotheren For nothing Simply off of g p You know help em get back up on they feet for free If my community is blinded by what we call shining Then half you muthafuckers out here claim you grinding for nothing That’s just how break em Take em for they sense of pride and they motivation Sell it to they kids so when they bring it back to the crib That’s when the domino effect slowly begins All for nothin It’s like you can’t even avoid The feeling it was destroyed a long time ago Same bloodline as geranimo Captivate muthafuckers just like guantanamo Im here to let em know we can’t be faded Now face it Im doing this here for simpler times My systematic observation got that kalifornication state of mind On that sun beam relax recline By the way you just mi-informed Hold the correction Till you get your spine right Or get your back in the game Go get a sense of pride about yourself Cause we maintain I represent the inner crust of every broken terrain The focus never outta focus Analyze the prognosis Or the forecast Moving through the ghetto Rather steadfast Committed to genuine efforts And still collect cash… For nothing they just popping the trunk And if you stuck Then you just get stuck Really im saying its for nothing
