This is life (echo 2x)

But it's paradise for me.

From the cradles to the stiff coffin, legit fortune

I lean for them corner fiends, crip-walking

Wedding-bells I'm out of that shell of slick talking

Honeymoon, deep scuba diving, kissing the dolphins

I lived though, I quit flossing, I forgive though this shit's costing

At the crib with the kids often, coasting

Ski-boating on the beach ocean

Hoping them old closed cases never re-open

Moving, y'all minor leagues, I'm like speed motion

Muscles thru my white tee's woken, he's holding

Hypnotic, spit shit you sit and vibe wit, melodic

I mental escape thru all the garbage

This is life (echo 4x)

One in a million, I'm strong young and appealing

Was born son a villain, put on in front of my building

Peeping how the street structure decease brothers

Critique, but I was placed here to reach others

Incomplete, stand feet from the deep cover

Eternal sleep, I wonder if the Beast love us

The frail weaken, the stronger be in jail eating

The average male will make it home if the bail's decent

I inhale frequent, it alleviate great, to be a part of the game

Can't be a day late to be a part of the same

Need a g' a day take, five if you live, slide mines on the side

This is life (echo 4x)

Mics, money and music my life's for you to view it

I stand militant, my stripes came from the sewage

Interrogation lights, spend nights up in the cubics

Fistfights, I'm nice like Earl Huvick

Harmonizing, narration is traumatizing

Here since '94, it's still kinda surprising

I touched topics, safe-boxes, unlocked it

Complete zone keep my tone on one octave

Owe nothing, won't ask to hold nothing

Clean behind the scene, but control buttons

Brought it back for the essence that got watered in rap

'Cuz I'm a aura I bring more to track
