1996 marks the begginning of a new era
a dysfunctional member of the Alcoholic Family
Its xzibit, HAH
V1:
Sometimes i wonder if its all worth my while
Xzibit stay versatile with million dollar lifestyle
and i could feel it as a child growin up
The niggaz that was real and the niggaz that was scared as fuck
Thats why Xzibit only roll with a chosen few
You ain't really real i can tell when i look at you
So ease off the trigga talk
You ain't killin shit
It's not affectin me
Or the niggaz that im chillin wit
I don't believe the hype
Or buy a wolf ticket
Nigga you make a gang of noise
And never seem like a cricket
I guess thats why we never kick it
Alot of niggaz is soft and get tossed
Tryin to fuck with the Likwit
How many niggaz do you know like dis?
Always claimin that they ridin
But they really aint shit
it don't make sense
Either you a soldier from the start
Or an actor with a record deal
tryin to play the part
Like dat
(chorus)
It's a shame
Niggaz in the rap game
Only for tha money and tha fame
X-Tra Large
It's a shame
Niggaz in the rap game
Only for the money and the fame
Paparazzi
V2
I don't need no lights no cameras
Just action, now damn it
Never no superstar
I'm more like a planet
See my composure is kept
While others start to sweat
Emergin from the fog
With my fucked up dialog
Tryin to live high on the hog leaves you bankrupt
And niggaz you spent it on
will not give a fuck
and dat's deep
HOW DEEP?
It's deeper dan atlantis
Home of da scanadouls
Big bad los angeles
Dangerous, vandalous
Not to be trusted
So how da fuck is you hard
Not bein scarred by the blvd.?
Pullin that card and saying "Gin, MothaFucka"
Flowin like Likwit
Soak it in MothaFucka
Xzibit break it down
My style surrounds like death
from the west
Puttin whole counties to the test
It's all in perspective
Breaker 1-9 Copy
Dis is fo tha niggaz gettin caught up in da paparazzi
(chorus)
V3
Niggaz smoke stress and cross dress
but Xzibit play da back
While you goin through schemes
and pipe dreams for a contract
Real tightly rolled
FUCK EM ALL
How i feel
Made a cool half mill
Before i got a record deal
Therefore, you look and stare like its magic
But too much of anything can make you an addict
When devil's be startin static
Break out the automatic
I set it on straight
i spread hate, then i vacate
BUT WAIT
Who dares to cross this path
Xzibit do you like math
Cut like glass
Make a blood bath
So on behalf
Of all the niggaz i get drunk wit
Smoken blunts wit
I dispose of your punk shit
And keep it all in perspective
Carbon copies
Gettin caught up in da paparazzi

(chorus)

    General CommentEasily the BEST Xzibit song around. Off his first album, At The Speed Of Life. Its pretty much about how rappers are only rapping for the money and fame and not for the passion and love of doing it. And how a lot of artist are pretty much talking shit about what they have done or how hard they may be. Great song, with a lot of meaning.
