It ain’t no one to trust but me
And I got to make sure that I take care of my family
And it ain’t no choices 'cause it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

And to my niggas on the block
On the grind and hustlin' tryin' to sell some rocks
You hear the voices say it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

I’m hidin' out and smokin' herb
'Cause my boss is gettin' on my motherfuckin' nerves
But I got to take it 'cause it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

See rappin' is my only way
My mama told me just to save it for another day
But I got to make it 'cause it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

Man, I can hear that wind blowin'
You say it don’t get cold in CP well niggas it’s been snowin'
Even though some might disagree when business is still slowin'
Even if we subject to change
Come up out them diamonds and rings
Even all them dollars and change

Nigga we home-grown
And to those that couldn’t take the pressure nigga they long gone
Skeet 25 lighters on dressers or you’ll get zoned on
They be puttin' them bodies in bags
They be cuttin' them bodies on slabs
Then go to somebody and brag

Got to keep a straight face
Better keep inside with your know got to find a safe place
Better stay in silence or go or end up a waste case
Pigs figure it’s more stuff to do
Pigs figure there’s more folks than you
Pigs never come close to a clue

I put my life on it
Want to disrespect give me your neck and I’ll put a knife on it
Some say it’s slippery when wet but my Roll got ice on it
It’s all about supply and demand
It’s all about me buyin' some land
You folks just don’t understand, that uh

It ain’t no one to trust but me
And I got to make sure that I take care of my family
And it ain’t no choices 'cause it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

And to my niggas on the block
On the grind and hustlin' tryin' to sell some rocks
You hear the voices say it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

I’m hidin' out and smokin' herb
'Cause my boss is gettin' on my motherfuckin' nerves
But I got to take it 'cause it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

See rappin' is my only way
My mama told me just to save it for another day
But I got to make it 'cause it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

Man, I see the clouds comin'
Y’all see a man on the moon walkin' I see a crowd runnin'
And the APD steadily talkin' 'cause we done found somethin'
And it’s not as good as it seems
Oh I wish I could get some cream
And get up out of the hood with some dreams

I’m peepin' hard crimes
See the system’s fucked up and they givin' out some hard times
Heard that one of these??? up and my people snortin' hard lines
Locked up and they didn’t do a thang
Locked up because of the pressure and pain
Locked up because they wouldn’t do the same

And I see the case close
I can’t ask no questions, and it’s over 'cause they say so
I ain’t learned no lessons, but these snitches better lay low
Or we gonna be choppin' some heads
And we gonna be rockin' some beds
And we gonna be droppin' some ends

We walk a long road
Tryin' to find the essence of self but I picked the wrong clothes
Do-rag with a gat under my belt 'cause life’s throwin' strong blows
But I keep a little hope and some dreams
And I try to stay focused and clean
But I got a little dope and some green, 'cause uh

It ain’t no one to trust but me
And I got to make sure that I take care of my family
And it ain’t no choices 'cause it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

And to my niggas on the block
On the grind and hustlin' tryin' to sell some rocks
You hear the voices say it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

I’m hidin' out and smokin' herb
'Cause my boss is gettin' on my motherfuckin' nerves
But I got to take it 'cause it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

See rappin' is my only way
My mama told me just to save it for another day
But I got to make it 'cause it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

I can see them change faces
Man, y’all look at me like y’all grew up in the same places
Scams and dirty work came up on a day to day basis
Now they got to re-up and re-bag
And they got to re-up and re-slab
Then they got to be up and be bad

This game’ll never end
Excuse my French, but Goddammit I got some clever friends
They might get set back by some wench but that bitch’ll never win
It’s all about the way of the world
It’s all about the way of them girls
It’s all about them diamonds and pearls

We waitin' too long
But the DEC in Southwest Atlanta is too strong
We might bring that soap out and wash up and throw them suits on
Comin' in the court with some pride
'Cause we ain’t got nothin' to hide
Just didn’t know what laws to abide

I play the cards dealt
And I bought a full house and I watched a woman’s heart melt
See my mama’s cooled out and she’s cryin' 'cause it’s heart-felt
It’s all about supply and demand
It’s all about me buyin' some land
You folks just don’t understand, that uh

It ain’t no one to trust but me
And I got to make sure that I take care of my family
And it ain’t no choices 'cause it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

And to my niggas on the block
On the grind and hustlin' tryin' to sell some rocks
You hear the voices say it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

I’m hidin' out and smokin' herb
'Cause my boss is gettin' on my motherfuckin' nerves
But I got to take it 'cause it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)

See rappin' is my only way
My mama told me just to save it for another day
But I got to make it 'cause it’s cold outside (It’s cold outside)
