Song Lyrics

There are seven known wonders of the world, you about to witness the eighth muthaf**ka'¦

[Verse 1]

I got King Kong in my trunk,

King Kong in my doors

My nuts play ping-pong from the noise;

you can hear me from a block away

Im sitting next to your ass and cant hear what you got to say

My sh*t is loud, my ears is ringing

My paint job is wet

My chrome is gleaming

I feel like a vet ballin' on these rookies

An old-school bully, you must have played hooky

I bring it like a bookie,

My aggression is depressing

Don't give a muthaf**ka time to learn his lesson

A lunatic, y'all know what I represent

The only rapper that wanna fist-fight the president


It takes a nation of n*ggas to hold us back (x4)

[Verse 2]

When I bang this its dangerous

n*ggas go brainless

So bang this with the four-five stainless

And understand that you looking at the famous

West-coast rapper who act like an anus

Hollywood, they thought they could tame this

Pit-bull, but I know what the game is

Them f**kers cheat like an NBA ref

If you smoke one ???

They'll electrocute you to death

I got god on my intellect

Godzilla by the neck

When the n*gga come through, who you wanna holla at

Ghostwriters hit the deck

When ya boi got a tech

Where the f**k is Africa-Bamabata at

We need to take it back, f**k Viacom

Clear Clear Channel and Radio One

You muthaf**kas programmed by the programmers

That's why you getting locked up by the dope slammers

Not me


It takes a nation of n*ggas to hold us back (x4)

[Verse 2]

They music so fluffy, Im'a stay gutter

That sh*t is kinda popcorn, my sh*t is so butter

My style never change in 22 summers

Straight independent and doing my numbers

This sh*t don't sell, you know Im still paid

So sour-puss n*ggas, can drink lemonade

Im doin it for the love

You doing it because

You need that advancement to spend on them dubs

I don't need a penny, but I need many

Don't worry bout ma money boi, cause I got plenty

You muthaf**kas worry bout flossing so much

You don't know the fundamentals, you forgot how to brush

These thirty-two teeth

Will give your ass grief

Bite you like a fat burger if you got beef

So whose it gonna be, your favourite MC

Your scared of the government, they scared of me

Now what?


It takes a nation of n*ggas to hold us back (x3)

It takes a nation of n*ggas and streets of crack

ng done anymore.
