Lyrical Nutrition

First of all
I wanna thank my connect
The most important person
With all due respect
Thanks to the duffle bag
The Brown paper bag
The Nike shoe box
For holding all this cash
Boys in blue who put greed
Before the badge
The 1st pusher whoever made the stash
The roc boys in the building tonight
Oh what a feeling I’m feeling life
Thanks to the lames
Niggas with bad aim
Thanks to a lil change
I tore you out the game
Bullet wounds will stop your bafoonery
Thanks to the pastor rapping at your eulogy
To lil kim and them
You know the women friend
Who carry the work cross state for a gentlemen
Yeah thanks to all the hustlers
But most important to you the customer

Chorus

The Roc Boys in the building tonight
Oh what a feeling I’m feeling life
You ain’t even gotta bring ya paper out
We the dope boys of the year
Drinks is on the house
The roc boys is in the building tonight
Look at how I’m chillin
I’m killing this ice
You aint even gotta bring
Ya purses out
We the dope boys of the year
Drinks is on the house

Let ya hair down baby
I just hit a score
Pick any place on the planet
Pick a shore
Take what the Forbes figured then figure more
Cuz they forgot to account what I did with the raw
Pick a timeless
Pick apart some stores
Pick a weekend for freaking for figure fours
I figure frauds never hit a lick before
So they don’t know the feeling
When them things get across
Put ya hand out the window
Feel the force feel the porche
Hit the frost
Ice cold
Jewels got no flaws
Drop got no top
You on the top floor
Pink rose, think OJ
I get away with murder
When I sling ye
Heron got less steps than Britney
That means it ain’t stepped on dig me

Chorus

Red Porsches, rare portraits
Rare guns if you dare come near the fortress
This apple sauce is from
The apple orchid
This kind of talk is only reserved
For the bosses
Which means I get it from the ground
Which means you get it when I’m around
Rich niggas, black bar mitzvahs
Mazel Tov, it’s a celebrations bitches
L’Chaim, I wish for you a 100
Years of success but it’s my time
Cheers toast to the crime
#1 D boy shame he could rhyme

UPDATE:
Yeah that’s Little Brother on the Jeezy adlibs.

    Honestly, its cool. Nothing that really made me go like “wow” you know? Im one of his biggest supporters, shit I even wrote a song about the dude but I just cant get to crazy about his latest.

    Maybe when I hear the project as a whole my views mght change. It’s dope for what it is tho.

    Heron got less steps than Britney
    That means it ain’t stepped on dig me
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    I don’t get that line. Anybody?

    • kkmoney

      I think it has to do with Heron not needing to be processed as much as coke, so in turn it is easier to produce/move and makes more cash….not sure about the less steps than britney line, but it could be referencing the vmas or her being in 12 step rehab, or maybe saying britney is a coke head thus meanin

      heron got less steps than “coke” britney??

      N

  • du Bois

    /\/\/\
    “Stepped-On” coke is coke that’s been watered down or had ‘ish added to it to up it’s weight… in other words diluted –> Britney forgot most of the steps to her routine at the VMA’s or just plain couldn’t do them… so he’s just saying his coke is the sh*t.

  • CHICAGO PaPii

    My 16′s:
    Yeah them Roc Boys is Back
    then Free Larry Hoover with the Blocks destroyed from That,
    got the *150 hat tilted towards the Right
    more Folk$ is on the Strip then Police Camera at
    Night
    it’s Gamble with life walkin in The Hood so roll the Dice,
    all you hear is junkies moaning from blowin on that Pipe,
    youngsters, hustlers,Chevys,Regals and Impalas with Crome Mufflers
    Mayor Daly send out his Irish Goons to rush us
    but, were BLACK and MILITANT like Bobby Rush was,
    back when the Panthers were a Organization of the Mothers,
    who lost Sons to Anglo-Saxons,Irish and Italian
    MutaFuckas
    from Englewood to Roseland to Austin
    Organized Crime brought about a Shadow
    of Coffins
    different Gang Signs and Gang Lines which dared Outsiders to
    Cross it,
    It’s like Baghdad on 68th and Halsted,
    Pimps get robbed and trucks tossed in,
    Hypes tweakin from that
    Frosting,
    you talk about niggas in “It”
    These Chicago Streets are more than a
    EPIDEMIC

  • Rues

    “Apple orchid?”

    Orchard.

  • Fire

    “Blue Magic” has better lyrics than this, but the beat for “Roc Boys” is tight as hell. Just imagine if you combined those two. Not saying he should, but that would be sick. This definitely isn’t Reasonable Doubt or The Blueprint, but it’s still all right.
