Knew a lot of hustlas, goin O.T., comin back with the new hip-hop Like! E-40 holding down the yay (that yay), N.W.A. in L. A OutKast from the A-Town, way down in Houston they play the UGK I walk and talk kinda fast and thought of as a New York kinda rhymer (word is born) But must New Yorkers got family in South and North Carolina (come on!) L.A. is little Alabama, they walk and they talk with a country grammar New York think everybody else sound country, so they get started, started callin 'em 'Bamas Down south where we buy them hammers, down south where we sell them drugs Down south where life is cheap, where they quick to fill you with them slugs It’s nothin, I’m from New York but I got country cousins It’s nothin, we stay connected by the slang we bustin Want it simply put?

Growing up in P.A., I knew nobody out there talked like us Nothin but that county slang, «What up dog? What up cuzz?» Late night you see us guzzling 40's, menthols, wine, and weed Sitting on the back porch, getting zooted, feeling fine indeed Listening to Eric B. and Rakim or EPMD Cool C and Steady B, plus that Public Enemy Not to mention N.W.A., DJ Quik, and MC Eiht Down south we listen to it all, we didn’t discriminate Then along came Geto Boys, Raheem, and the Royal Flush Rap-A-Lot Records based out in Houston, represents for us O.G. Style, The Convicts, Def IV and Too Much Trouble Odd Squad and Ganksta NIP put it down for H-Town on the double So I said, «It's time to hustle,» got down with my brother C Put together UGK and shit the rest is history We make hits by the dozen, put it down when they said we wasn’t Trust me it’s nothin, just another day in the life of your country cousins In Brooklyn, New York I’m down with Lord Jamar Back in P.A.T., man we be sippin the barre I’m down with J. from Houston and I think it should be But when I’m out in L.A.
