Live This

This song is by 8Ball and appears on the album Almost Famous (2001).

I was twelve years old when I sold my first stone
Thirteen when I bought my first gold herrin' bone
MJ knew how to cook it up and I supplied the kitchen
My momma was at work and never really paid attention

Bitches comin' in and out, fuckin', gettin' blowed
A couple of my niggaz like to dirty up they nose
But I was never into that, I really loved the chief hay
Pipes with them white boys, them blunts when I'm around the way

Never seen nothin' other than them streetlights
Late at night, trife niggaz be out gettin' hype
Ain't no tellin' what a young nigga might see
Might be, when he grown up in the inner city

Everybody got they own shit they dealin' with
Every muh'fucker livin' should be feelin' this
Money ain't the only thing that bring a nigga joy
But when you ain't got it mayne it be so hard

How many niggaz live the shit they spit?
(Live the shit they spit)
How many niggaz spit the shit they wish?
(Spit the shit they wish)
They could get, when they blow up and get legit
(Blow up and get legit)
How many niggaz live the shit they spit?
(Live the shit they spit)

How many niggaz live the shit they spit?
(Live the shit they spit)
How many niggaz spit the shit they wish?
(Spit the shit they wish)
They could get, when they blow up and get legit
(Blow up and get legit)
How many niggaz live the shit they spit?
(Live the shit they spit)

Tell me nigga if you feel what I'm spittin' to you
Is any of this shit sinkin' in and gettin' to you?
I've been on the road, hustlin' for ten deep
In yo' city on the backstreet gettin' weed

Fuckin' wit niggaz that don't even know how to rap
Niggaz that go to every fight and shit like that
And don't trip nigga, we ain't got no beef
And no beliefs in nothin' that we can't see

Except God, I pray to him and he be right there wit me
He make it all good, even when it ain't pretty
Every nigga got they nose in my bankroll
Rollin' over with these hoes in my night clothes

Late night shows gotta get it how we come
On the bus, on the plane, know we push some
Now you gotta get nigga so I gotta get it
(Gotta get it)
If you ain't got it yet, nigga you betta go and get it

How many niggaz live the shit they spit?
(Live the shit they spit)
How many niggaz spit the shit they wish?
(Spit the shit they wish)
They could get, when they blow up and get legit
(Blow up and get legit)
How many niggaz live the shit they spit?
(Live the shit they spit)

How many niggaz live the shit they spit?
(Live the shit they spit)
How many niggaz spit the shit they wish?

Rap dope game, Lil' Ki' told me that
It's for real if you look at how a nigga react
Look dope makes cash, CD's make G's
Dope getcha locked up, CD's getcha free

You might think that if ya don't know the game
Them niggaz rearranged but the game stay the same
I put it in my head and I locked it
Loaded up my mouthpiece, cocked it and I popped it

Brr, bulletproof nigga cain't nuttin' stop this
Everybody gettin' hit, when I start to drop this
Watch this big, fat, overweight, Space Age,
Black-ass nigga, lookin' fly on the front page

Gotta love it when you see it 'cause it's all real
I done seen niggaz lie still and get killed
Blood spilled over muh'fuckin' record deals
Ain't shit changed nigga and it never will

How many niggaz live the shit they spit?
(Live the shit they spit)
How many niggaz spit the shit they wish?
(Spit the shit they wish)
They could get, when they blow up and get legit
(Blow up and get legit)
How many niggaz live the shit they spit?
(Live the shit they spit)

How many niggaz live the shit they spit?
(Live the shit they spit)
How many niggaz spit the shit they wish?
(Spit the shit they wish)
They could get, when they blow up and get legit

How many niggaz live the shit they spit?
