I'd risk everything For one kiss, everything Yes I'd do anything (Anything?) Anything for you I’d do a bid, loose a rib, bust a cap, trusting that Run up to heaven doors, exchange my life for yours Leave a steak out the door, mi casa, su casa Just remember to turn the lights off in the hall My brother from another pop, minus one shot We Neno and G-Money man, we all we got From the stoop to the big dudes, stoppin' us from playin' hoops And us getting mad, throwing rocks off the roof Straight thuggin' man, I thought we would never progress But look at us now man, we're young execs My n***a Dame, my n***a Biggs, my n***a Tah My n***a Ja, my n***a Gotti We embody all that’s right with the world No matter how pretty she is, you never liking my girl That's how we run, when you ain’t around I'll spank ya son, keep him in line If you should die, I’ll keep him like mine God forbid, keep this in mind, my n***a I'd risk everything For one kiss, everything Yes I'd do anything (Anything?) Anything for you I'd risk everything For one kiss, everything Yes I'd do anything (Anything?) Anything for you I know mama, your little baby But these streets raised me crazy Product of my environment, nothing can save me Thanks for letting me bloom for your wisdom for your womb For the roof over my head, for my shoes, for my bed For the most important lesson in life was when you said "Strive for what you believe in, set goals and you can achieve them" Thanks for the days you kept me breathing when my asthma was bad And my chest was weezin', thanks for the look of love Just as I was leavin' On nights you thought that I wouldn't come back That left you grieving Thanks for holdin' down the household when times was bad As the man, I apologize for my dad When the rent was due, you would hustle like a pimp would do That wasn’t the life meant for you You’re a queen, you deserve the cream Everything that gleamed, everything that shines Everything that’s mine I'd risk everything For one kiss, everything Yes I'd do anything (Anything?) Anything for you I'd risk everything For one kiss, everything Yes I'd do anything (Anything?) Anything for you Check it out, uh, uh Dear nephews, I’m writing' this with no pen or a pad And I’m signing it, ya uncle, ya best friend, and ya dad Don't look back if you fall and you’re feeling bad I’m right there from your cut to when you peelin' the scab If it comes a time when you ain’t feelin' your real dad Put my face on his body don’t wait for nobody Don’t follow no n***a, that's ho shit man Stand on your own two, do your shit man The world is yours Some girls are nice some girls are whores Don't listen to your crew Do what works for you Standing back from situations gives you the perfect view You see the snakes in the grass and you wait on their ass Bite your tongue for no one and whatever is said Take it how they want, a closed mouth don't get fed You know my number when it’s code red if you're wrong my n***a You’re my nephew, f**k it we get it on my lil n***a
