Lyrics:

Intro:

[Stretch] One time, one time nigga one time!

Runnin’ from the police (Yeah I know what you mean)
No matter what I do, they got a nigga
still runnin’ from the police
(Put them motherfuckin Nike’s on tight and get ghost y’all)

[Young Hollywood] I ain’t got nuttin on my mind, but gettin in some trouble
Lickin shots to they block leavin bloody blood puddles
for some ridah delight, now we in a gunfight
I can shoot the gauge pebbles at the devils or die tonight
It’s on me, but if I die bury me a motherfuckin G
A open casket on them bastards so they all remember me
With my vest on my chest, my tools and my piece
Thug Life motherfucker gotta me runnin’ from the police

[K-Dogg] Nigga, you know that’s true
Catch a nigga like K-Dogg, chillin wit a crew
Every damn day parlay with my glass of Re
The O.J. and it’s all OK
’til that fuckin fake cop got to play the man
Ran me down the block with my glass in my hand
Damn, I hope it don’t spill
Nigga chill, shit is real cock back my steel

[Big Malc] Still runnin’ from the police I gets no sleep
I got you peepin in my window while I’m smokin indo
But I ain’t no motherfuckin track star, pig’s got a Jeep
like Big Malc, runnin through motherfucker’s backyards
So I, grabs my piece before I flee
And instead of me runnin’, these bitches is runnin’ from me
Lick shots hits spots off on my piece
Cause a nigga like Big Malc is through runnin’ from the police

[Chorus: Buju Banton]

[Stretch] Yo I was, schemin and fiendin for loots and took the crooked route
to, ghetto fame I felt the pains and now I run the game
The insane brain, cold gettin fly like a plane
on them suckers with my nigga Biggie Smalls causin ruckus

[Notorious B.I.G.] Check it, I grew up a fuckin screw-up
Got introduced to the game, got a ounce and fuckin blew up
Choppin rocks overnight
The nigga Biggie Smalls tryin to turn into the black Frank White

[Stretch] And we got the workers choppin rock, Benz by the flock
And we gettin it, the dirty cops are jealous so they sweatin it
I’m lettin off smoke, hope they don’t play me for no joke
and provoke the homicide, so just let the drama slide
We keepin it real, fuck how you feel, Biggie pass the steel
Let’s serve these motherfuckers slugs as a fuckn meal

[Notorious B.I.G.] We had to grow dreads to change our description
Two cops is on the milk box missin
Show they toes you know they got stepped on
A fist full of bullets a chest full of Teflon
Run from the police picture that, nigga I’m too fat
I fuck around and catch a asthma attack (*heavy breathing*)
That’s why I bust back, it don’t phase me
When he drop, take his glock, and I’m Swayze
Celebrate my escape, sold the glock, bought some weight
Laid back, I got some money to make, motherfucker

[Chorus: Buju Banton]

[2Pac] And still I’m having memories of high speeds, when the cops crashed
As I laugh pushing the gas when my glocks blast
We was young, and we was dumb but we had heart
In the dark when we survived through the bad parts
Many dreams is what I had, and many wishes
No hesitation in extermination of these snitches
And these bitches they still continue to pursue me
A couple of movies now the whole world trying to screw me
even the cops tried to sue me
So what can I do but stay true, sipping 22’s a brewing
now the medias trying to test me got the press asking questions, trying to stress me
misery is all I see, thats my mind’s state
My history with the police is shakin’ the crime rate
Ma main man had 2 strikes, slipped, got arrested and flipped
He screamed ‘Thug Life!’ and emptied the clip
gots tired of running from the police

[Chorus: Buju Banton]
