about

Dope yo
Aww yeah

lyrics

i'm from south central
but not really
live south of arlington
so technically
i'm a gangsta
without a gun
east India is
where i'm from
(i) had to go to
a recording
hopped in my car
to do my thing
hit the gas pedal
but didn't go far
here in LA
5 miles is large
ended up parked
next to a queen
at the intersection
(she was) almost obscene
(i) said, "jump in."
she didn't hesitate
she was a model
her boyfriend was late
then i knew
that that meant
trouble galore
made me
start to wonder
why i opened the door

(hook!!!!)
pretty jewelz of the world
are an illusion
they can only cause you much confusion
run to the mountains
run to the hills
live in a cave
that's how i feel

this girl was beautiful
i had to admit
then i got scared
when i saw his fist
comin in the direction
of my window
(i said), "Sorry, homes,
but i gotta go."
so i had to ask her
why she rolled with me
she said i didn't
look too bad for a brownie
"Huh," I said,
"And I nearly died
when your bodybuilder boyfriend
hit my side.
Fortunately my car is pretty fast
and that's why i had to
punch the gas."

(hook!!!!)
pretty jewelz of the world
are an illusion
they can only cause you much confusion
run to the mountains
run to the hills
live in a cave
that's how i feel

turns out her boyfriend's dad
was the mayor
now i knew that trouble
was in the air
i dropped her off
and gave her a ten
(i told her,) "Yo, catch an uber, baby.
I ain't playin'."
Soon the mayor
was startin a war
I had the cops
knockin' at my door
"Yes, officer," I asked,
"what can I do?"
(The cop replied,) "Come with us, son.
Now you are through."
"But what officer
did I do?"
"You rolled with a queen,
a rich white one too."
I didn't realize
there was the caste
i'm an untouchable
without a mask

(hook!!!!)
pretty jewelz of the world
are an illusion
they can only cause you much confusion
run to the mountains
run to the hills
live in a cave
that's how i feel

got fingerprinted
and thrown in jail
with a big dude
named Fred Gizzalle
Fred saw me cryin'
and became my friend
(Fred warned,) "Don't tell the others
I'm a nice man."
so i went out on the exercise yard
nearly got shanked
i was shiverin' hard
Fred stood up
(He) said i was a friend
all the other cons
started shakin'
that's when the warden
called me off the block
(the warden said,) "your mommy got you bail
so your cells unlocked."

(hook!!!!)
pretty jewelz of the world
are an illusion
they can only cause you much confusion
run to the mountains
run to the hills
live in a cave
that's how i feel

i kissed the ground
when i got home
had the media
blowin up my phone
in the news:
"a wild indian kid."
why are the people here
so classist?
i'm done
with the whole dating scene
rather be alone
than with a queen
so pretty jewelz
don't understand
i hope you get it though
i hope you can see
why i became
who i am and decided
to leave this land
one more thank you
to Fred Gizzalle
he kept me
from dyin in jail
and one last thank you
to my momma
she got me out
of the prison trauma
