Gossip[n].small talk or chatter about someone,often about things heard from others but not 
known to be facts.

Intro: Don't you just hate when the world turns on you unannounced? You get that paranoid 
feeling all the time that you wish would go away. The main factor contributing to that feeling 
is gossip.

I always tell my inner circle not to believe what people say.

It goes in through one ear and out the other because they do it anyway.

O, thats what we on, you listen to them but not me.

My mama always said people are fake, I didn't believe it, but now i see.

We go way back to God knows wen, what happened why spread rumors and lies?

I see you everyday and wanna knock you out when I look into your eyes.

Word around school is... I'm no good, cheater, a hoe,

Lets be real I'm none of that especially a false-flaggin Moe.

Then again haters get down like that becuz their esteem is weak.

Katt Williams said if Monday you have 5 haters, try to get 10 by the end of the week.

What is it, you mad because my attention isn't on you but somebody else?

You need some attention, go kill yourself you need some serious help.

I'm cool though, hated by many, confronted by none.

My swagger, words, and wisdom will act as my only gun.

So for all the people who like riding the winds breath here's a tip:

If there's one thing that will get you hurt,is spreading gossip.
