"Rubber Band Man" as written by Lavell Crump and Clifford Harris....
Hey, who I'm is?
Rubber band man
Wild as the Taliban
Nine in my right, forty-five in my other hand
Who I'm is?
Call me trouble man, always in trouble man
Worth a couple hundred grand, Chevys, all colors man

Rubber band man, like a one man band
Treat these niggas like the Apollo, and I'm the sandman
Tote a hundred grand canon in the waistband
Look'n fo' a sweet lick? Well this is the wrong place man
Seven tyme felon, what I care 'bout a case man?
I'm campaignin' to bury the hate, so say yo' grace man
Ay, I don't talk behind a nigga back, I say it in his face
I'm a thoroughbred nigga, I don't fake and I don't hate
Check my resume nigga, my record's impeccable
Anywhere in the A nigga how T.I.P. is highly respectable
And the M-I-A nigga I'm tryna keep it professional
Cause all this tongue finna have me snap'n, I'm tellin' you
From the bottom of the Duval, Cakalacky to New York
And everybody show'n me love that's one to you all
Yeah, to all my Florida niggas, my Cakalacky niggas, my LA niggas

Hey, who I'm is?
Rubber band man
Wild as the Taliban
Nine in my right, forty-five in my other hand
Who I'm is?
Call me trouble man, always in trouble man
Worth a couple hundred grand, Chevys, all colors man

Hey, who I'm is?
Rubber band man
Wild as the Taliban
Nine in my right, forty-five in my other hand
Who I'm is?
Call me trouble man, always in trouble man
Worth a couple hundred grand, Chevys, all colors man

Call me trouble man, stay'd in some trouble man
Some niggas still hate'n on shawty so, they some suckers man
Got a couple fans that love to do nothing other than
Lick, suck, show no 'spect, but still I love 'em man
Dig it, lil' pimpin' got the mind and the muscle
Stay down on his grind put the crown on the hustle
Hey, I could show ya how to juggle anything and make it double
Weed, blow, reel estate, liquor sto' wit' no trouble
Young Cassius clay of my day Marvin gay of my time
Tryin' stay alive, live'n how I say in my rhymes
My cousin used to tell me, take this shit a day at a time
And told me Friday died, Sunday we a day in the ground
I still smile 'cause somehow I know he see'n me now
And so I'm doing all my shows just like he in the crowd
Hey, throw ya lighters up for my cousin Toot, (rest in peace)
Aaliyah, Left Eye and Jam Master Jay

Hey, who I'm is?
Rubber band man
Wild as the Taliban
Nine in my right, forty-five in my other hand
Who I'm is?
Call me trouble man, always in trouble man
Worth a couple hundred grand, Chevys, all colors man

Hey, who I'm is?
Rubber band man
Wild as the Taliban
Nine in my right, forty-five in my other hand
Who I'm is?
Call me trouble man, always in trouble man
Worth a couple hundred grand, Chevys, all colors man

Grand hustle man mo' hustles than hustle man
But why the rubber band? it representin' the struggle man
My folk gon' trap, until they come up wit' another plan
Stack and crumble bread to get theyself off they momma land
Gangstas who been serving, since you was do'n the run'n man
Went down, did 10, back 'round and rich again
That's why I'm young wit' the soul of a ole man
I'm shell shocked, get shot slow ya roll man
Still ride around with the glock on patrol man
I ain't robbing, I'm just looking for that dro' man
For ma niggas slanging blow, pimpin' hoes
Rollin vogues, twenty-four's
Let these other niggas know

Hey, who I'm is?
Rubber band man
Wild as the Taliban
Nine in my right, forty-five in my other hand
Who I'm is?
Call me trouble man, always in trouble man
Worth a couple hundred grand, Chevys, all colors man

Hey, who I'm is?
Rubber band man
Wild as the Taliban
Nine in my right, forty-five in my other hand
Who I'm is?
Call me trouble man, always in trouble man
Worth a couple hundred grand, Chevys, all colors man

    General CommentThe nickname "Rubber Band Man" I believe comes from T.I.'s habit of wrapping rubber bands around his money stacks.

    This song is about so many different things, though, that it would be hard to know where to begin discussing it.

    General CommentRubber bands are often found on the wrists and arms of recovering heroin addicts who say that the sting of popping the rubber band against their skin reminds them of a needle and actually calms them down

    General Commentha yeah i think it's about $ not heroin, because he's talking about all the expensive things he's got from all his money, that's why he's the rubberband man :)

    General CommentWell it IS T.I. He basically raps about his money and that's it... and so does all other rap music sooo
    I'm pretty sure it is about him and his money u know like I wouldn't expect T.I. To write a song about being a recovering heroin addict you know
    And I don't even know if he is a heroin addict or something u know so ya...
    its prolly about money

    General CommentYo dawgs. When T.I refers to a 45 you tink he means a colt 45 malt beverage or a .45 caliber weapon? Or maybe he means 45 spf sunscreen. In his right hand he says he has a 9, that could be understood as a pistol. Why would he have 2 different pistols in each hand? i think he just be thirsty and shit and be drankin it up. wut i nigs think?

    General Commentactually, t.i. said in an interview that in bankhead (his neighborhood), dealers or addicts would walk around wearing rubberbands on their wrists signifying either how much drugs they had, what types, and prices... or how much $ they had to spend on drugs from others
