"What If" as written by Curtis James Jackson, Darryl Carter, Linda Cooke and Bobby Womack....
Yeah, I'm f***in' wit' dis
It's that classic s***
That gangsta s***, yeah

Man I watched the sun go up but come down, sayin' what if?
Man I watched the tide roll in and roll out, sayin' what if?
Homey I play the block tryin' to get my packs off, sayin' what if?
Man if I get a shot, I could make it to the top, damn what if?

If I got on some pretty boy s*** like Puffy
N****z in the hood, man they just wouldn't love me
If I wore a suit every day like Jay-Z
N****z would think I blew up my f***in' head and went crazy

If I put diamonds in my teeth like Baby
I wouldn't stand a chance of tryin' to sell like Shady
If I put out bulls*** joints like AZ
Every chance n****z get, they'd try and play me

But I move around with a little 380
A n**** try to stunt, a n**** get sprayed be
If I smoked weed all day like Snoop do
I'd see the world different through my dilated pupils

If I bust dance moves on you like Usher
N****z did say, "50 that ain't gangsta, f*** ya"
Man I'ma just keep doin' what I do
'Cause n****z can't do me, better than I do, ha, ha

Man I watched the sun go up but come down, sayin' what if?
Man I watched the tide roll in and roll out, sayin' what if?
Homey I play the block tryin' to get my packs off, sayin' what if?
Man if I get a shot, I could make it to the top, damn what if?

What if I had blockbuster flicks like Will Smith?
And all the backpack n****z loved me like Mos Def
I'd probably be a cool a** n**** like Ice Cube
Picture me in this flick right now lookin' so cool

What if I was a low key n****, just laid back?
Hustle to keep a homey 'round, somebody to hold the gat
Man what if Halle Berry was my next baby moms?
S*** I'd give that child support up with no problems

If I caught a case and jumped bail I'd get caught
'Cause I'm that n**** everybody know from New York
But if I was the new rap n**** you didn't know
You'd be sayin', "Damn that kid got a sick flow"

What if I just cruised through your hood on 22's
Bumpin' Curtis May field or Marvin, somethin' smooth
And if I let the top down on the Azure
Yeah that'd make you sick to your stomach I'm sure, ha, ha

Man I watched the sun go up but come down, sayin' what if?
Man I watched the tide roll in and roll out, sayin' what if?
Homey I play the block tryin' to get my packs off, sayin' what if?
Man if I get a shot, I could make it to the top, damn what if?
