"I'm A Hustler" as written by Curtis James Jackson, Jason Phillips, David Styles, Sean Jacobs, Chad Elliott, Rufus Moore and George L Spivey....
Rule number one don't go against the grain
Rule number two give respect where respect due
Rule number three if you get knocked play games and say names
[gun click sound] the 45 will tear you out the frame
Its like the rich get richer and the poor don't get fuckin thing
Don't mean nothin changed but the things my money bring
My style will leave you aggy like them cats in jail
You peoples got pleany money actin like they ain't got bail
I feel for you niggas gettin shot while I'm sayin this rhyme
Or niggas in the mess hall gettin shot on shallow lines
An old timer schooled me don't burn bridges my friend
Imagine the G-Dub close and yo ass gotta swim
I watch the fifth melt a nigga melt a nigga of the sidewalk of New York
Me and shorty saw from afar and had a talk
He said I told em if he came around I'd clap him, I gave him my word
Look at his head its still shakin he had alot of nerve

If it wasn't for the flow
I'd probably have to double Back bubble crack
yea yea I'm a hustler

If it wasn't for the flow
I'd probably have to double Back bubble crack
yea yea I'm a hustler

If it wasn't for the flow
I'd probably have to double Back bubble crack
yea yea I'm a hustler

Yo when the fed come in the game loyalty is limited
Hardcore niggas start actin feminine
With the feds you do eighty five percent of your time
Duke you get ten you'll damn near do nine
Hate a liar more than I hate thief
A thief is only after my salary a liar is after my reality
The streets I know'em like my ABC's
Stay away from the D's and stack ya cheese
Try to see three hundred g's fore you see three hundred C's
Tree top to feel the breeze co connect for key's
Yo bitches sexin me take me to ecstacy
Once I nut (ahh oh shit) I don't want 'em next to me
If its on mother fucker believe I'm gonna ride
I'm the type to swallow my blood fore I swallow my pride
Letters on my shirt read DKNY
Got grimy niggas runnin with me from BKNY

If it wasn't for the flow
I'd probably have to double Back bubble crack
yea yea I'm a hustler

They say I don't sound like a killer well how a killer sound
I bet I grab a foe pound and back that ass down
See many men live baby and many men die
Many men get drunk puff lah and stay high
Here's a jewel love you enemies and hate your friends
Your enemies remain the same friends always change
I don't quit that theres more that one way to skin a cat
You can get him in the face dog or down his back
All bullshit aside now its time to be honest
I fear no man for death is all thats promised
I got niggas standin in line waitin to hear me spit
From eighty six to ninety six the game went from sugar to shit
This for you niggas in the background dyin to shine
I hate you like fiends who ask for a dime for nine
Don't nothin change in the game but faces and names
Skate to wait to date and the jake

If it wasn't for the flow
I'd probably have to double Back bubble crack
yea yea I'm a hustler

    General CommentThis artist is promoting the torture of youth as whores by glorifying whores and hookery its because of artists such as him that some youth think its ok to be involved in gangs and street violence. This guy promotes greed, violence and sodomy!!

    General Commenthonestly if 50s a wanna-be than every other rapper in the world that youve ever heard of is a wanna-be.

    That goes fore every other rap artist around the globe to mention violence and PROSTITUTION. (QuiefLoraine, hookery isnt even a real word, you pro-female cunt.)

    What makes it a fad to all of a sudden hate 50 Cent? God only knows.

    As for the man thinking he is fit, Randomhugs, did the doctor mistake your head for your ass and slap you in that empty hollow spot you call a head?
    the man knows he is fit, he IS fit.
    if you know youre skinny, youre skinny.
    if you know youre fat youre fat.
    if i were to say you are a loser who likes to complain about successful rap artists and who chooses to bitch about him even though you are looking at the lyrics to this one of the most unpopular of all 50s song lyrics hinting that you must like the guy even a little, i would be right because all these things are based on fact.

    Honestly, storyxofxaxbitch, if they look like lyrics and they sound like lyrics, it rhymes, and they are on a lyrics website then YES i would have to call these LYRICS.
    if you disagree then maybe you can show us how its done.
    im sure you must have loads of boring storys to write about.

    You
    Fucking
    Twats

    General Commentby the way i completely forgot why i was here in the first place, damnit, see what wasting your stupid people time for too long does to you?
    anyway.

    I think this song is a clever, and cleverly written.
    He writes about everything he knew about the streets and the life lessons he learned along the way.

    "Hate a liar more than I hate thief
    A thief is only after my salary a liar is after my reality"

    "Here's a jewel love you enemies and hate your friends
    Your enemies remain the same friends always change"

    These are some of the most clever lines ive ever heard in a song of any genre.
    A theme song for any hustler, drug dealer or gangster to feel.

    My OpinionThis song is a life's lesson. It's amazingly meaningful. I mean just listen to theses lines:

    ''Rule number two give respect where respect due''

    ''All bullshit aside now, it's time to be honest;
    I fear no man for death is all that's promised''

    ''If it's on motherf***er, believe me I'm gonna ride;
    I'm the type that swallows my blood before I swallow my pride''

    50 cent was a true rapper back in the 1997-8-9-2000... I Mean he was hungry back then. Just listen to ''Power Of The Dollar'' album, it's so good. 50 cent has so much confidence and he knows it. Just listen to his lines you'll see how much confidence he has. The man is now on top of that music industry. Yes, he became big out of nothing. Nowadays he's getting money and having a good life, sadly you haters can't appreciate his art. Well guess what? 50 cent is not giving a flying fuck about you, he's getting money and has succeed so much in his career. Seriously if you think this song is crap, you don't know what rap is. I mean this is legit old school man.
