OUTKAST - Claimin True Lyrics



[big boi]
Well it is ithe pimp playin nigga that you heard about
YeahI got the money and a half a million dope houses
I got the hookers on the go and playa rhymes that I fuck with
I buy amps that pops my trunk swift
I've been a player since the age of two
That's when I learned to walkgrab my crotchtalk
Do how them hoe sellers do
See born and raised as a pimpthat's what I claim to be
Always claimin true to what I do and then fuck what I see
I pledge allegiance to the streetsthat's where I growed up
And make my money cuz my daddy never showed up
But fuck itI'm on my ownI'm in my zone
And nothin wrongyou don't belongyou left me standing alone
YeahI'm the nigga with the feather in my hat
Finger waves and snake skinsshitI got all that
But you ain't know I'm the one dippin and dodgin bullets
The price you pay when you behind it steady tryin to pull it
So dolemitedolemite not shitI studied the mack and rudy ray moore
They were my idols when I was a kid
From nappy headgreasy faceeatin watermelon
To drug dealerarmed robbernowto big felon

Chorus: repeat 2x

I wonder how you would react if you was in my shoes
I put in work and did the dirtthat's how I payed my dues
Uh1-2-3that's how it be
So all the real niggaz step up like the playas that's in back of me

[dre]
All heavenly fatherwhy do you even bother watchin over me
Growin up a little gmy mama thought I'd grow to be
A lawyer or a doctor but I felt like comin harder
Packed a shank up in my socks when I started kindergarten
This ain't no secret gardenso you fly when niggaz flee
If it is one of my ownI'm lettin the trigger be
Cuz I got love for any nigga who got love for me
And then I get a slap of dap when I'm slangin quarter keys
Just tryin to make itthen of agecome throughtake it
I ain't forgot about y'all women who be workin niggaz butt naked
At magic cityshakin titties just to pay the rent
Lordtryin to hustle must be somethin that was heaven sent
But I ain't got no sensethat's what I got them thinkin
I think about paybackstrap myself and keep on dankin
Cuz I be takin the rough side of the mountain
If you cross my pathI'll leave you drainin like a fountain
Yes it's been like that since way backin 1975
Been taught to hustle with muscle and even try to strive
So little botty bwoy better say your prayers
You better learn some street sense before somebody lay ya

Chorus: repeat 4x
