The instamatic focal point bringing damage to your boroughs
Be some brothers from the east with some beats that be thorough
Got the solar gravitation so I'm bound to pull it
I gets down like brothers are found ducking from bullets

    I'm sick of bitches shakin' asses I'm sick of talkin' about blunts, Sick of Versace glasses, Sick of slang, Sick of half-ass awards shows, Sick of name brand clothes. Sick of R&B bitches over bullshit tracks

    Man, I remember when this came out, buggin' that they used a 3-bar loop. "Seem like every man and woman shared a life with John Gotti... but they ain't organized!" This track is straight Real Talk.

    "Every word I say should be a hiphop quotable"--I use this one on the constant. Since '96!
