    this that i got i got i got i got
    realness i just kill shit cause it’s in my dna
    i got millions i got riches buildin’ in my dna
    i got dark i got evil that rot inside my dna

    at 9 i’ve done so well hit cartwheel in my estate
    and i’m gon’ shine like im supposed to antisocial extrovert
    and excellent mean the extra work
    and absentness what the fuck you heard
    and pessimists never struck my nerve
    and nazareth gonna plead his case
    the reason my power’s here on earth
    salute the truth when the prophet say

    ii got loyalty got royalty inside my dna
    this is why i say that hip hop has done more damage to young african americans than racism in recent years

    ii got loyalty got royalty inside my dna
    i live a be fuck your life
    5 4
    this is my heritage all i’m inheritin’
    money and power the mecca of marriages

    tell me somethin’
    you mothafuckas can’t tell me nothin’
    i’d rather die than to listen to you
    my dna not for imitation
    your dna an abomination
    this how it is when you in the matrix
    dodgin’ bullets reapin’ what you sow
    and stackin’ up the footage livin’ on the go
    and sleepin’ in a villa
    sippin’ from a grammy walkin’ in the buildin’
    diamond in the ceilin’ marble on the floors
    beach inside the window peekin’ out the window
    baby in the pool godfather goals
    only lord knows i’ve been goin’ hammer
    dodgin’ paparazzi freakin’ through the cameras
    eat at four daughters brock wearin’ sandals
    yoga on a monday stretchin’ to nirvana
    watchin’ all the snakes curvin’ all the fakes
    phone never on i don’t conversate
    i don’t compromise i just penetrate
    sex money murderthese are the breaks
    these are the times level number 9
    look up in the sky 0 is on the way
    sentence on the way killings on the way
    motherfucker i got winners on the way
    you ain’t shit without a body on your belt
    you ain’t shit without a ticket on your plate
    you ain’t sick enough to pull it on yourself
    you ain’t rich enough to hit the lot and skate
    tell me when destruction gonna be my fate
    gonna be your fate gonna be our faith
    peace to the world let it rotate
    sex money murderour dna
