"Respect"


Beauty in the beast

Show respect to get respect
Show respect to get respect

I took you in, I showed you how to win
I damn it gave you the paper and the pen
Taking notes to take over but you overstepped your boundaries
I could blow your cover if you're thinkin that you're clowning me

I see ya, I see ya, yeah, I see right through ya
I see the difference from a gimmick and they feel like they can fool ya
Real recognize real
So don't be fooled by a smiling face

I'm lookin over my shoulder for that cold piece to cut
Keep them knives out my back, you get stuck slippin up, you think I'm stupid
But publicly I won't speak names
I'm on some silence 'cause violence will only validate yo fame
It's a shame, can't associate with fakes and lames
I pump the breakes, gas past ya, dip into another lane
Got a traffic jam battling for the top position
When you fall back down again, Heres a lesson you've been given

[Pre-Hook:]
You better give credit, give credit, where it's due
Or you'll choke if you're bitin off more than you can chew
You want that money, that money, that money and the fame
But you ain't got shit without respect behind your name

[Hook:]
Show respect to get respect
You get what you give
Show respect to get respect
You get what you give

Don't go up against a vet unless you puttin in some work
Take a lesson on respect you better earn that shit first
Fuck that overnight success, earn them one at a time
Rockin plotin and pacin but movin humble on this grind
I've built a solid foundation with all the bricks that they thrown
And I'm bout my reputation, let that shit be known
Acknowledge those who paved the road and laid the ground work
And honestly their credits give it but it's deserved

I'm reppin that 5-1-0, going neck to neck and toe to toe
Got them hitters on deck if you gotta keep checked
That's if you're steppin on toes
I'm reppin that 5-1-0, going neck to neck and toe to toe
Got them hitters on deck if you gotta get checked
That's if you're steppin on toes

Don't forget where I come from
Better show respect, that's number one

[Pre-Hook:]
You better give credit, give credit, where it's due
Or you'll choke if you're bitin off more than you can chew
You want that money, that money, that money and the fame
But you ain't got shit without respect behind your name

[Hook:]
Show respect to get respect
You get what you give
Show respect to get respect
You get what you give
