changed man lyrics – 2pac

(featuring johnta’ austin & t.i.)

[tupac talking]

sh*t, i’m a changed man
hey turn the lights up
still ballin’, 2pac up in this b*tch
you know how we swing this sh*t
look

[verse 1: tupac]

by age 16 i sold to dope fiends
not a drug dealer but i watched them closely
until they noticed me
i got the feds wondering who broke the law
f*ck too inhibited for gun smoke i broke his jaw
words harder than a f*cking diamond
mobile phone call to simon, n*gg*s trippin’ homie, when we riding?
f*ck ’em slowly like jodeci
i’d stick a needle in my eye
if i don’t live and die for m.o.b
and f*ck your homeboys n*gg* we can drop the guns
i hit your block and we can box for fun
n*gg* one on one
last to fall is a baller cat
it’s death row why the f*ck u think we call it that?
so if u knew me in my past life
don’t act like we homeboys
ain’t no love in the fast life
i switch gears on them jealous b*tches
who do you fear?
the game plan of a changed man
so what i’m saying is

[chorus]

i changed plans but i’m still the same old ridah
(f*cking with a changed man)
i slang a new dope to the world but the people still buy it up
(n*gg* you f*cking with a changed man)
all my real thug n*gg*s go and get your hands up now, your gonna flip your hands up
(f*cking with a changed man)
changed man, you dealing with a changed man

(hey, eh, eh)

[verse 2]

in drop top
glock c*cked
got rocks in ma socks
cops spot watt n*gg*s
but hard to stop n*gg*s
not if the gat n*gg*s
doughboys and hot n*gg*s
who might have shot n*gg*s
but only by strolling
out for respect
now days they expect me to be in a ferrari or the old lexus
but anything you see flashin past and can’t tell
that’s me
gauge on the escalade back seat
don’t creep
but what u think
t.i. be in them suites?
but don’t sleep
get u hit from your head to feet
hey u don’t know me
i’m fittin’ to introduce you to the old me
you walk in, explode it and leave reload
you don’t like a record n*gg* – buck you, blow me
but you will respect me
or get it in your neck piece chief
no grief n*gg* still gonna let me be
or get your insides exposed to the streets, n*gg*

[chorus]

i changed plans but i’m still the same old ridah
(your f*cking with a changed man)
slanging new dope to the world but the people still buy it up
(n*gg* you f*cking with a changed man)
all my real thug n*gg*s go and get your hands up now, your gonna flip your hands up
(f*cking with a changed man)
changed man, you dealing with a changed man

[verse 3: tupac]

a n*gg*s so cold when i flow
bow down to death row
three wheel motion
coming through coasting
who’s that n*gg* in the g-ride
screaming out m.o.b
n*gg* we ride
i hit the charts like a stick up kid
number one in the nation
i f*cked the world
the judge gave me probation
faced with incarceration
move tapes like it’s big weights
slanging to the whole nation
give me mine or i’m blastin’;
on every song
murder my enemies
i’m mashing ’till i’m gone
one love to my thug n*gg*s
and f*ck a b*tch cause a truce is to love n*gg*s
throw your hands in the air close your eyes and hope
you ever come against a m*ss of smoke
on death row
my adversaries bleed
but f*ck em all ’till the talk cease
f*cking with a changed man

[chorus]

i changed plans but i’m still the same old ridah
(you f*cking with a changed man)
slanging new dope to the world but the people still buy it up
(n*gg* you f*cking with a changed man)
all my real thug n*gg*s go and get your hands up now, your gonna flip your hands up
(f*cking with a changed man)
changed man, you dealing with a changed man

[tupac talking] (over chorus)

haha, everybody think they understand a n*gg*
sh*t u n*gg*s don’t know me
ya’ll know that n*gg* on the rap songs
ya’ll know that n*gg* in the movies
you don’t know this n*gg* in 3d
the real live right up against u in front of your face…(sh*t)
westside
outlaw immortals (hahaha)
n*gg* you f*cking with a changed man (hahaha)
you f*cking with a changed man (hahaha)
i ain’t the same, you f*cking with a changed man
we ain’t the same, you f*cking with a changed man
we ain’t the same, f*cking with a changed man
changed man …
