Before a blunt, I take out my fronts
Then I start to front, matter of fact, I be on a manhunt
You couldn’t catch me in the streets without a ton of reefer
That’s like Malcolm X catchin’ the Jungle Fever
King poetic, too much flavor, I’m major
Atlanta ain’t Brave-r, I pull a number like a pager
‘Cause I’m a ace when I face the bass
40-side is the place that is givin’ me grace
