Life's a gamble, you gon' take that chance?
Damn right, I'm 'bout cash, you know what fills my pants
That charge carry life, you gon' stay on ya' grind?
Hell yeah, you already know, money's on my mind
What if the police watching, you gon' stand on that corna'?
Hell nah, I'll be ducked-off, I ain't a slow learner
What ya' gon' do, play cards or roll dice
Life's short, move fast, don't think twice
Life's a gamble, don't go broke, hit the jackpot
Stay solo, running in packs get ya' tied-up...knot
Got a few loyal soldiers, lots of phonies and fakes
The game's like a cave, filled with rats and snakes
There's too many hustles to be sitting 'round broke
Call me, like a manager, I got work
Gotta' take chances in life, nothing's guaranteed
Would you go get it, even if you had to bleed?
Mind over matter, but what matter's on my mind
Not a pro-skater, but I stay on my grind
Try 'n' take mines, best believe you gettin' hit
Bring ya' crew, and my choppa'll serve a banana split
By any means necessary...that's my motto
I wouldn't change my life, even if I hit the lotto
