"Rags To Riches"
[feat. Bobby Valentino]

From rags to riches
Betcha I'm a be the riches [x4]

[Verse 1:]
Started off as an army brat (Atten-hut)
Seven months class act
I was racin 'round the block as a matta fact
Could've been a track star(I guess I am)
I stacked bars
Runnin through ya system in them phat cars (uh)
Cross country isn't that far
It's like I'm in a race
Don't know who you cats are
See one day I fell from grace landed in this place my whole sh*t erased
From talkin back to my momma's face like I was lost in space
Without a trace
Cuttin class bein Mrs.Fast Ass
Gettin blasted with Dad got caught up in th flash
My Nana goin mad had to make a dash
Saw a fell up in the streets
Did anything for cash
And anything to crash in anybody's path
Gave everything I had
Took what I could grab (check it)
It was just a bunch of open rags

[Chorus: Bobby Valentino]
It's the story of the life of a hustler
Runnin for the come up
No one had thought that I would ever blow up
So I guess I had to show up
Now everywhere I go the people wanna know
They wanna know where I came from
Not havin a pot to piss in
Stop and listen
I'll tell you how I came from rags to riches

[Verse 2: Left Eye]
I remember sellin coke
Can't believe that I was poisonin my folk
Now I let my throat be the antidote
Always kept my hopes high
Now Momma don't cry
Cause I'll close by
With the most high
I was playin Robin Hood (In the Hood)
Little Red Ridin Hood
Till the barrel pointed to where I stood
Yea I stood but walked away like I was absolutely positively sure I could
Attitude on f*ck it
Ten dollars in the bucket
Been schemin steady dreamin
For a chance to make some duckets
Caused a little ruckus on the sideline
Fully reconstructed every guideline
From the alley way to Cali on the Grammy day
Went from disarray to mayday mayday mayday
Ran from the sickness with a quickness
And went from rags to richness


[Verse 3: Bobby Valentino]
Man I struggled so long
Did whatever it took for me to get on
I wouldn't let nobody stop me
Even if they told me I couldn't
I said I'm a do it watch me
And now I'm just livin life lavish
Money cars clothes yea I gotta have it
It's been a long time runnin for this business
But I told ya'll I would be the richest

[Chorus x2]
