16. “What up kid? I know sh*t is rough doing your bid/ When the cops came you should have slid to my crib/ Fu*k it, black, no time for looking back it’s done/ Plus congratulations, you know you got a son/ I heard he looks like ya, why don’t your lady write ya?/ Told her she should visit, that’s when she got hyper/ Flipping, talking ’bout he acts too rough/ He didn’t listen he be riffing while I’m telling him stuff”“One Love”
