"Play For Keeps"

How much must I repeat?
We only play for keeps
No time-outs, no free throws
No refs, no penalties
No handouts, no pit stops
No cheat codes, no sleep
But the drinks are on us
If you with it then pull up a seat

When you're roaming through the jungle
Talk is nothing, talk is cheap
Time is money, money is power
Power corrupts eventually, damn
So what are the options?
What are the choices left for me?
What other rule there's left to break
I guess my faith is a quest for me
Man got a dog and ain't got no leash
Man got a crib, it ain't got no lease
Man got a floater that got no brain
But I still get brain, oh it has no teeth
Nowadays, niggas the killas on the beat
But where I was raised all of the killas was down the street
Better do your research
Feeling like I fell out of the sky and landed feet first
My swag go hard, my swag go country, watch my theme work
Hell yea, you can sail that, the boy fend to it cause I took my seat first
3 course meal, full entrée, refills and I want my desert
So why not make a toast? Tomorrow could always be worst
Now keep them bottles coming by the killer liter
And get that Ana off your chest, try to keep a clean shirt
I'm so grand hustle, you ain't even in my league sir
What's up with these nerds?
They be out here, gettin' their silenced off, gettin' their leads heard
The game just ain't what it used to be, the quality is blurred
But a dying breed survives and a dynasty immerse
So put it in for out if you entirely concur
She call me hippie cause I live without any concern
Up on this green earth, I'm on them green herbs
Yea yea yea, I stay in them trees like the keblers
And they say that I look higher in person
As a kid I played in the yard, but now I'm astro turfing
I lived the actual version of the fantasies they utter
Map stories of threesomes, they must just be seeing double
Run for cover, here comes trouble
My heart is going cold so I gotta sleep with warmer covers
Polar bear pimpin', solar flare spittin'
Somebody tell 'em that this is professional stuntin' and don't attempt it
Society is twisted, they tryna take us under
So when you see them folks, don't forget to warn a brother
I made it out alive but still the battle is a struggle
Veni, vidi, vici, I came, I saw, I conquered
The masters have murdered the game
And their name wasn't in the wheel
You see, my citizens are some mad rappers who's still waiting on a deal
And they jealous of my success cause my shoes cost more than their bill
But I'll never sit down at another table unless I'm invited to the meal
To some it's like conquering mountains, to me it's like stepping on heels
Remember the images in your mirror can be bigger than they appear
And the truth can be hard to swallow, the pivenous eyes of the peal
And by the looks it's about the time that you had your prescription sealed
My life, fooling speech or presentation
There are no intermissions, no time for commercial breaking
A fighter in his prime, a legend in the making
There's no debating when you let your numbers make the statement

How much must I repeat?
We only play for keeps
No time-outs, no free throws
No refs, no penalties
No handouts, no pit stops
No cheat codes, no sleep
But the drinks are on us
If you with it then pull up a seat
