"X Gon' Give It To Ya" as written by Earl Simmons, Kasseem Dean and Shatek King....
Arf Arf
Yeah, yeah, yeah (Grrrr)
Uh, Yeah don't get it twisted
This rap shit, is mine
Motherfucker, it's not, a fucking, game
Fuck what you heard
It's what you hearin'
It's what you hearin' (Listen)
It's what you hearin' (Listen)
It's what you hearin' (Listen)

[Verse 1]
X gon give it to ya
Fuck waitin' for you to get it on your own
X gon' deliver to ya
Knock knock, open up the door, it's real
Wit the non-stop, pop pop and stainless steel
Go hard gettin busy wit it
But I got such a good heart that
I'll make a motherfucker wonder if he did it
Damn right and I'll do it again
Cuz I am right so I gots to win
Break bread wit the enemy
But no matter how many cats I break bread wit
I'll break who you sendin me
You motherfucker never wanted nothin
But your wife said, bitch, and that's for the light day
I'm gettin down, down
Make a nigga say freeze
But won't be the one endin up on his knees, bitch
Please, If the only thing you cats did was came out to play
Stay out my way, motherfucker

[Chorus]
First we gonna ROCK, Then we gonna ROLL
Then we let it POP, DON'T LET IT GO
X gon' give it to ya
He gon' give it to ya
X gon' give it to ya
He gon' give it to ya
(Repeat Once)

[Verse 2]
Ain't never gave nothin to me
But everytime I turn around
Cats got they hands out wantin something from me
I ain't got it so you can't get it
Lets leave it at that cuz I ain't wit it
Hit it wit full strength
I'm a jail nigga
So I face the world like it's Earl in the bullpen
You against me, me against you
Whatever, whenever
Nigga, fuck you gon' do?
I'm a wolf in sheeps clothing
Only nigga that you know who can chill
Come back and get the streets open
I've been doing this for nineteen years
Niggaz wanna fight me? Fight these tears
I put in work and it's all for the kids
But these cats done forgot what work is (UH-HUH!)
They don't know who we be
Lookin! but they don't know who they see, nigga

[Chorus]
First we gonna ROCK, Then we gonna ROLL
Then we let it POP, DON'T LET IT GO
X gon' give it to ya
He gon' give it to ya
X gon' give it to ya
He gon' give it to ya
(Repeat Once)

[Verse 3]
Aiiyo where my niggaz at?!
I know I got them down in the game
Give em love and they give it back
Toke too much for too long
Don't give up your too strong (What?!)
A dog to the bow bow honeyz
Shoutout to niggaz that done it
And it ain't even about the do'
It's about gettin down for what you stand for yo

[Chorus]
First we gonna ROCK, Then we gonna ROLL
Then we let it POP, DON'T LET IT GO
X gon' give it to ya
He gon' give it to ya
X gon' give it to ya
He gon' give it to ya
(Repeat Twice)

    General CommentThis song is obviously about Fedex.

    "Fuck waitin' for you to get it on your own
    X gon' deliver to ya
    Knock knock, open up the door, it's real"

    It cannot be more clear.

    General CommentNot a full analysis, but the lines:

    I've been doing this for nineteen years
    Niggaz wanna fight me? Fight these tears

    can be interpreted to mean that he has killed many people in his time. In gang culture, it is a cliche to have a teardrop tattooed onto you for every kill made for your gang in a gangfight. So, "fight these tears" is his way of saying he has many "tears," or kills, and not to fuck with him.

    General CommentUnlike everyone else apparently, I actually this song has some serious meaning...

    It's DMX complaining about how people in his hood expect things to just fall into their lap without doing any work.

    "X gon give it to ya", "X gon deliver to ya..."

    And then they try to get handouts from him, since he put in the work, and now he's rich

    "But everytime I turn around
    Cats got they hands out wantin something from me"

    "I put in work and it's all for the kids
    But these cats done forgot what work is"

    And DMX warns people not to try to steal from, or he'll kill them

    "Niggaz wanna fight me? Fight these tears"

    "I'm gettin down, down
    Make a nigga say freeze
    But won't be the one endin up on his knees, bitch
    Please, If the only thing you cats did was came out to play
    Stay out my way, motherfucker"
