True Hollywood Story //
True Hollywood Story //
True Hollywood Story //
True Hollywood Story //
True Hollywood Story //
True Hollywood Story //
This is a //
True Hollywood Story //

[Canibus]
Yo,
I vaguely remember 1974 when I was born //
As soon as the doctor cut my umbilical cord he put me in my mother’s arms //
I was crying when she looked down at me //
She was smiling ‘cause I guess she was happy //
She absolutely had no idea //
I was flowing ‘cause it wasn’t quite clear //
She just kept tickling me and ignoring me //
True Hollywood Stories //

[Canibus]
My native home was Jamaica //
We moved to the States a few years later //
I had trouble fittin’ in //
‘Cause I had a funny speech impediment //
People couldn’t understand what I mean //

I used to wear Cross Color jeans //
Rasta belts with the red, gold and green //
My man used to boost [___A___] for me //
True Hollywood Story //

[Canibus]
In ’93 I met the Lost Boyz //
Without them I wouldn’t even have a voice //
I showed the world I was nice with the verbals //
That’s how I got signed to Universal //
I released two albums //
In all I sold nine-hundred and ninety-nine-thousand //
Over the years a lot of people tried to diss me //
‘Cause I grabbed a piece of Hip Hop history //
Thank God that the drama didn’t destroy me //
True Hollywood Stories //

[Canibus]
I took a trip to England with Pak Man //
Five months later we met Stan //
He was cool so we let him join the band //
And introduced him to the rest of the Horsemen //
Then I hooked up with this cat named Lou //
And he was cool with C-4 too //
Now the whole crew’s on tour with me //
True Hollywood Stories //

[Canibus]
This is a story about beef //
Arrogance, lies and deceit //
This is an independent release //
And that’s why it’s totally dependent on the streets //
I ain’t got no record label behind me //
Maybe nobody got the balls to sign me //
But it’s cool ‘cause soon they’ll all be calling me //
This is a True Hollywood Story //
