“D'USSÉ is the s--- if I do say so myself/If I do say so myself, if I do say so myself/Hold up, stumble all in the house/Time to back up all that mouth/That you had all in the car/Talkin' about you the baddest b---- thus far/Talkin' about you be reppin' that Third/I wanna see all that shit that I heard/Know I sling Clint Eastwood/Hope you can handle this curve, uh”

“The year is '94, in my trunk is raw/In my rearview mirror is the motherf-----law/Got two choices, y'all: pull over the car or/Bounce on the devil, put the pedal to the floor/And I ain't tryin' to see no highway chase with Jake/Plus I got a few dollars, I can fight the case/So I pull over to the side of the road/I heard, "Son, do you know why I'm stopping you for?"/‘Cause I'm young and I'm black and my hat's real low?/Do I look like a mind reader, sir? I don't know”
