Fore’ U Shoot Me Down…
I’m really not Sure-

I didn’t Rob any Store-
I’m not High Or Drunk,

Is it really a Crime 4 “ME”,
2 have a Nice-Ride
Why does it have 2b?,
I’m slangin thangZ on the side?
ThatZ not what I Do Alright?^
U got the Wrong-Brotha(
But PerhapZ in Ur Eye-Sight^
I Jus got the Wrong-Color(.
U’ve Been Followin my car,

Holdin on 2 ya pistol,
still searchin 4 Pot_.
