Verse 2:
Back when Gucci was the... to rock,
Back when Slick Rick got the... to pop,
Id do anything to say I got it.
Damn, those new loafers hurt my pocket.
Before anybody wanted K. West beats,
Me and my girl split the buffet at KFC.
Dawg, I was having nervous breakdowns,
Like, man these... that much better than me?
Baby, Im going on a airplane,
And I dont know if Ill be back again.
Sure enough, I sent the plane tickets,
But when she came to kick it, things became different.
Any girl I cheated on, sheets I skeeted on.
Couldnt keep it at home, thought I needed a Nia Long.
Im trying to right my wrongs,
But its funny, them same wrongs help me write this song.

Verse 3:
Yes! Yes! Yes! Guess whos on third?
Lupe still like lupin the third.
Here like year, till Im beer on the curb,
Peach fuzz buzz but bit on the verge.
Lets slow it down like were on the syrup,
Bottle-shaped body like Mrs. Butterworth.
But, before you say another word,
Im back on the block like Im layin on the street.
Im trying to stop lying like Im Mum Ra,
But Im not lying when Im laying on the beat.
En garde, touch, Lupe cool as the unthawed.
But I still feel possessed as a gun charge,
I come as correct as a porn star,
In a fresh pair of steps in my best foreign car.
So, I represent the rst,
Now, let me end my verse right where the horns are like...
(To Chorus 3:)
