"Drive Slow (feat. Paul Wall, GLC)" as written by Kanye Omari West, Tommie Richardson, Doug Edwards, Leonard Harris, Paul Michael Slayton and W Trotter....
Drive slow homie, drive slow homie
You never know homie, might meet some hoes homie
You need to pump your brakes and drive slow homie

My homie Marley used to stay, 79th and May
One of my best friends from back in the day
Down the street from Calumet, a school full of stones
He nicknamed me K-Rock so they'd leave me alone
Bulls jacket with his hat broke way off
And walked around the mall with his radio face off
Plus he had the spinner from his Daytons in his hand
Keys in his hand, reason again to let you know he's the man
Back when we rocked Ellesses, he had dreams of Caprices
Drove by the teachers, even more by polices
How'd he get the cash? The day his father passed away
Left him with a lil' somethin', sixteen he was stuntin'
Al B. Sure nigga with the hair all wavy
Hit Lake Shore, girls go all crazy
Hit the freeway, go at least 'bout eighty
Boned so much that summer, even had him a baby
See back-back then-then if you had a car
You was the Chi-Town version of Baby
And I was just a virgin, a baby
One of the reasons I looked up to him crazy
I used to love to play my demo tape when the system yanked
Felt like I was almost signed when the shit got cranked
We'll take a Saturday and just circle the mall
They had they Lincolns and Auroras, we was hurtin' 'em all
With the girls a lotta flirtin' involved, but dawg
Fuck all that flirtin', I'm tryna get in some drawers, so
Put me on with these hoes homie
He told me don't rush to get grown, drive slow homie

Drive slow homie, drive slow homie
You never know homie, might meet some hoes homie
You need to pump your brakes and drive slow homie

What it do? I'm posted up in the parkin' lot, my trunk wavin'
The candy gloss is immaculate, it's simply amazin'
Them elbows pokin' wide on that candy 'Lac
Trunk open, screens on, neon's lit with fifth relaxed
I'm on a mission for dime pieces and sexy ladies
Allow me to introduce you to my CL Mercedes
It's a star-studded event when I valet park
Open up my mouth and sunlight illuminates the dark
You see them fo's crawlin', you see them screens fallin'
The disco ball in my mouth insinuates I'm ballin'
I'm leanin' on the switch, sittin' crooked in my slab
But I could still catch boppers if I drove a cab
A young Houston hardhitter all about the scrilla
Ridin' somethin' candy coated, crawlin' like a caterpillar
I'm tippin' on them four's, I'm jammin' on that Screw
I'm lookin' for them hoes baby what it do, drive slow homie

Turn your hazard lights on when you see them hoes (drive slow homie)
If you ridin' around the city with nowhere to go (drive slow homie)
Live today cause tomorrow man, you never know

You never know homie, might meet some hoes homie
You need to pump your brakes and drive slow homie

My car's like the movie, my car's like the crib
I got more TV's in here than where I live

And that don't make no sense, but baby I'm the shit
And everything I flip, you know it's somethin' serious
I got the custom grill, I got the Brabus rims
I got the baller genetics baby it's evident
You see a player flickin', and how you ain't convinced
That you should go on and kiss it, "Just a Lil' Bit" (just a lil' bit)
I got my custom kicks, I got my Jesus chain
My canaries is gleamin', through my angel wings
They see me, hoes actin like they seen a king
With that mean lean, smokin' on that finest Cali green
My woodgrain oak, I'm ridin' on Vogues
My cylinder quiet, like tip-toes
I sold O's, and this I know
When you see them hoes, lil' homie drive slow

Drive slow homie, drive slow homie
You never know homie, might meet some hoes homie
You need to pump your brakes and drive slow homie

    General CommentDrive Slow is about Kanye's best friend from Chicago who used to be realy popular with girls and had nice cards, but he died in a car accident driving too fast. This, along with Kanye's car accident is the reason why is promotion driving slow. he is also saying driving slow will impress the girls as much as driving fast.

    Goodnight!

    General Commenti think its about not rushing to grow up- which includes not rushing to lose your virginity, its about a friend he looked up to ..' he told me dont rush to get grown, drive slowly'

    i also think 'drive slow' has a double meaning, they are saying dont drive too fast, because kanye's been through a car crash, its a piece of his wisdom, but he also means dont rush through life..'live today cause tomorrow man, you never know'

    this song is amazing, i love the trumpets are beautiful and add a cruisy vibe

    General Commentit's not about picking up hoes off the street. It's about not being in a rush to lose your virginity.

    And I was just a virgin a baby
    One of the reasons I looked up to him crazy
    He said don't rush to get grown drive slow homey

    General CommentI love listening to this song while driving. When it plays you automatically drive slow. The jazzy trumpet sample adds that touch to the vibe of the song. I like the
    "I got T.V.'s in here than where I live"
    "And that don't make no sense, but baby I'm the shit."

    General Commentnah guys i dont think its about just fucking picking up girls or losin your virginity.

    its about just taking life slow, not rushin shit cause you never know what could happen, u just gotta enjoy life in the moment, u could end up picking up girls but you never know u could also end up dead.

    but maybe im wrong, u never know.

    General CommentI liked this song alot, mostly cuz of it's slow beat... I lost alot of respect for it however, considering it's 2pacs beat.

    General CommentMy favorite part is:

    I got more TV's in here then where I live

    AND

    Live today cuz tomorrow man you never know

    I think it's about taking everything slow, don't try to grow up fast, do things at a certain pace, don't be all over girls trying to loose your virginity. I love the beat of the song, and I actully like the fact other people sing it along with him, I tend to get bored if the song is only by one artist, because then I listen only to one part of the song as to when there is mroe artist then there are different styles.
