Mobb Deep - What Can I Do ? lyrics

Yeah... uh-huh ["What can I do?"]
Yeah yeah... (What's goin on man?)
(The fuck is goin on man?)
Yo ["What can I do?"]

To make that paper was the trait that I received at birth
Niggaz jealous and hatin on me ["What can I do?"]
When they plottin and schemin on me, the hammer just keep it on me
Fuck the fame and glory ["What can I do?"]
When your shorty gets nasty and horny, she all over me kid
You locked down, doin a bid ["What can I do?"]
With a nigga, tryin to take food off of my plate
And you know I got a kid ["What can I do?"]
When my stomach touchin, ribs showin
You off in the corner glowin ["What can I do?"]
Nothin else, but to take what's yours, convert it to mines
From the cash to the shine ["What can I do?"]
When shit is so fucked up, can't tell wrong from right
Right from wrong ["What can I do?"]
When they say, life is short, to you it's the cash
Todday it's seemin long ["What can I do?"]
Now I try to keep a positive look, my motto to jux
But can't seem to stay focused ["What can I do?"]
They say, an unoccupied mind's the devil's playground
So I sat and wrote this, to kill time ["What can I do?"]

Yeah yeah that's that gangsta shit son
I feel you my nigga.. (that's right that's right) ["What can I do?"]
(Infamous baby you ain't know?) We gon' do it like this
(That Mobb shit nigga) ["What can I do?"]

But send niggaz to hell
They try and stop me from cashin in man ["What can I do?"]
But squeeze without thinkin, flip without warnin
I got the drop on 'em ["What can I do?"]
You know, give it my best, empty this clip
And if live and happen to snitch ["What can I do?"]
Except, find his home, bring it to his family
Should I shoot his moms? ["What can I do?"]
Fuck it, send him a warnin, lick that bitch
Let him know the shit is on ["What can I do?"]
It's not my fault, it's just the game we in
And when you violate codes ["What can I do?"]
But punish niggaz for they actions
My shit jam when I start blastin, no ["What can I do?"]
Just relax, take out the clip, fix that shit
Put the clip back and keep goin ["What can I do?"]
Man you gotta keep your thug showin
People take kindness for weakness and so ["What can I do?"]
But be a cold-hearted bastard
This world is fucked up, and that's how it go ["What can I do?"]

(Fuck that son, Infamous nigga) ["What can I do?"]
(For two-thousands baby, y'all niggaz got your own) ["What can I do?"]
(Your little run, your little five year run ten year run)
(Y'all niggaz small time baby) ["What can I do?"]
(Small time baby, beneath us baby)

["What can I do?"] ["What can I do?"] ["What can I do?"] [*echoes*]
