You niggas know what it is

You niggas know what it is
We live one hell of a life
So Soulo ho?

We mapped it out, and now the map is ours
Raised my stats off of records, check an almanac
Thank God punchline knew I had a knack
Down two die to get my point across like craps
Control System, cut off your radios, cut off your
