Вершы: Yukmouth. City of Dope.

Gather ?round, gather ?round, hurry
Uh, welcome! uh, little boys and girls
Listen, I?m 'bout to lace, y?all motherfuckers
About Oakland, the city of dope

The first place in the world to ever sell base rock
Nigga, crack rock, they put it there to get rid
Of the panthers, but they really created this ballin'
What, what, nigga

Me and my niggas trying to ride drop
Buy rocks then we buy blocks
From the same dope fiends on my block
Who buy rocks, want supply hot

Weight servin' cakes like IHOP
Ever since them last motherfuckers got shot
Police been hot on my spot
Spot cops FBI watch

Got fiber-optic shit up in the pole
Showing my whole clique on crime watch
We let non-stop and show our faces
So what the case is

We wide on TV but still the grind don?t stop
Nigga this Oakland, the city of dope
You know where that crack shit was invented
And smoked by these ghetto chemists years ago

On Plymouth street we call the block
Plymouth rock
The first place like the world to ever sell base rocks
Now check it

The legendary Phoenix Mitchell put it down
So tough they had to make a movie about the town
But called it Nino Brown
That bullshit New Jack City

Is really based upon this place we call crack city
Oakland, Cali we act shitty
Think crack?s the answer
To get rid of these revolutionary Black Panthers

Smokin? blow and takin' [unverified] like jo-jo dancer
Or sniff it up your nose and ball out of control
Like Tony Montana
House in Atlanta, 3-car garage

Our ghetto superstars was hard
Young niggas touch a mil-ticket
Before they life behind bars
Niggas get caught with like eighty kilos

Hidden in the wall
But shit ain't hidden at all
From these cocaine sniffin' dogs
Same with the law

Shit in your draws when they get your ass
And let the ballers ball, get the cash
Till they get to your ass
I've never seen a baller fall on his knees

And snitch so fast
Plea bargain run after them niggas
That hang out with your ass
No wonder why that bitch-ass nigga got out

So quick, so fast
Came on the block my niggas saw you
Choppin? it up with task
Now that?s a violation

Nigga can?t chop it up with task
So while the trial awaits
Some nigga walks up and pumped his ass
Because the niggas in the O are hard as fuck

We sell Peruvian flake
Get it powdered, or rocked up
Don?t want nothin' from life but to retire from the game
Motherfuckin' city of cocaine

City of dope
East Oakland, yeah, that?s right
The city of dope
East Oakland, yeah, that?s right

Them task folks can?t stop us
High school niggas get caught with a hundred G?s
Stashed in his locker along with a chopper
Niggas be ballin' like a doctor, or a surgeon

M.C. Hammer splurgin?
He bought up countless brand new helicopters
And suburbans, now he hurtin'
The feds spilled they base downtown

So now it?s curtains
Niggas be perpin? off
Certain it?s gon? be a sweep
Dope fiend came through last week

Told me it?s gonna be a sweep
1991?s the number nigga
End of the summer
Niggas ain?t ridin' no fuckin' Hummers

We ride under buckets and try to stay on the slunder
I wonder, wonder what they would do
To a nigga who get caught with 2 pounds of thunder
Straight from Humboldt County, fuck that brown

Weed all should be green like the jungle
Dope fiends tryin' to warn us
Settin? up scene still in a bundle
We beat they ass and drag them from they hair

Just like Repunzel
Don?t fuck up our hustle
But anyway the day came just as predicted
I?m up at 6 in the mornin? takin' early morning pissin?

Pulled down my britches, and a nigga almost shitted
I heard somebody walkin' on the roof
I cocked the fo-fitness
Woke my cousin mike up

Could be some niggas sent to strike us
'Cause back then so many niggas didn't like us
Looked out the window, all I saw
Was FBI and snipers

I let the china white flush
And put that motherfucking 4-5 up
See the dope fiend he informed us
Told us it?s gonna be a sweep and then

He tried to warn us
But niggas out here try to make they money
So we ?nourmous then only a battering ram
Bustin' down your shit, ?nourmous

Highway patrols, 5.0?s, ambulance and coroners
In case there was a shootout or high-speed chase performance
By 9:00, they lock down each baller from every corner
From north to west on down to East Oakland, California

But, but, them niggas from the O is hard as fuck
We sell Peruvian flake powder or get it rocked up
Want nothing in life but to retire from the game
With some change in the city of cocaine

East Oakland, yeah, that?s right
City of dope
East Oakland, yeah, that?s right
City of dope
