Lyrics:Take this for example young brothers want rep
Cause in the life they're living, you can't half
step
It starts with the young ones doing crime for fun
And if you ain't down, you'll get
played out son
So let's get a car, you know, a fly whip
Get a dent, pull a screwdriver,
and be off quick
With a dope ride, yeah, and a rowdy crew
We can bag us a Benz and an
Audi, too
Even a jeep or a van, goddamn, we're getting ours, yo
Take a trip up the strip,
and be like stars so
It doesn't matter if the cops be scoping
They can't do jack, that's
why a young brother's open
To do anything, anywhere, anyplace
Buckwild in another court
case
It's the code of the streets

They might say we're a menace to society
But
at the same time I say "Why is it me?"
Am I the target, for destruction?
What
about the system, and total corruption?
I can't work at no fast-food joint
I got some
talent, so don't you get my point?
I'll organize some brothers and get some crazy loot

Selling D-R-U-G-S and clocking dollars, troop
Cause the phat dough, yo, that suits me fine

I gotta have it so I can leave behind
The mad poverty, never having always needing
If a
sucker steps up, then I leave him bleeding
I gotta get mine, I can't take no shorts
And
while I'm selling, here's a flash report
Organized crime, they get theirs on the down low

Here's the ticket, wanna bet on a horse show?
You gotta be a pro, do what you know
When
you're dealing with the code of the streets

Nine times out of ten I win, with the skills
I be weilding
Got the tec one dealing, let me express my feelings
Guru has never been one
to play a big shot
It's just the styles I got that keep my mic hot
Anf fuck turning my
back to the street scene
It gives me energy, so Imma keep fiends
Coming, just to get what
I'm selling
Maybe criminal or felon dropping gems on your melon
So keep abreast to the
GangStarr conquest
Underground ruffnecks, pounds of respect
I've never been afraid to let
loose my speech
My brothers know I kick the code of the streets
