they’re out to get me lyrics – busta rhymes

i’m just playin’ wit’ y’all n*gg*z
i’m just playin’ wit’ y’all n*gg*z
i’m just playin’ wit’ y’all n*gg*z
i’m just playin’ wit’ y’all n*gg*z

they see my name and lifestyle and say i changed
they so cold i know that they’re out to get me
and all those people i call my friends, let it go
that’s why i never call on y’all to be around
’cause you see how this money can change everything

yeah, see i done came a long way and now i got me a chauffeur
keep my enemies close, keep my friends even closer
muhf*ckers that i grew around, thought i could rock wit ’em
watch my cake so hard, they burn a hole in my pocket

i see ’em coming from afar because i been through so much sh*t
they plot a lot, hard or not, they see my dough come quick
invested in my n*gg*z, took the realtor route
gambled on the wrong n*gg*z, had to filter ’em out

type of dudes that see my mother and they greet her respectful
behind her back and see her son and try to give me a quick full
it’s cool though, i f*cks wit’ ’em even though i ain’t wit’ it
that’s why the gats be in the house whenever n*gg*z come visit

serve ’em drinks and welcome all to the law
for let ya drunk friend to show his true side until ya forced to cut him off
i seen it one too many times, they disbelieved and they speechless
sometimes having certain friends can end up being a weakness

see now my dogs turn to wolves and try to front me and surround me
come up out they sheepskin and act all different around me

they see my name and lifestyle and say i changed
they so cold i know that they’re out to get me
and all those people i call my friends, let it go
that’s why i never call on y’all to be around
’cause you see how this money can change everything

listen, sometimes i smoke a cigarette and then i think and i choke on
how n*gg*z steal this funny style and i was struggling broke
even though it don’t surprise me, sh*t it’s still kinda funny
when i ain’t have, a n*gg* still would come and try to take from me

instead of cutting my losses, being smart and just end sh*t
n*gg*z was trying to be loyal, just to maintain a friendship
in the wrong situation, plus there’s always a sequel
i’m with the wrong muhf*ckers, plus they ‘pose to be people’s

as i get more money, days get colder
i learned to realize that power only lies in the hands of the beholder
so then i start the heart-on-my-heart as i walk like a soldier
moving so militant, you think i had a chip on my shoulder

living by morals and principles mainly
having heavy thoughts to a kill a brother every time a f*cker betrayed me
but now i’m winning with the strength of the nation
i promise that they not even foreseeing
the size of the sh*t they’ll be facing

i’m aftermath now, sh*t’s getting worse
now when those same friends
see me goin’ hard that sh*t be making ’em hurt

they see my name and lifestyle and say i changed
they so cold i know that they’re out to get me
and all those people i call my friends, let it go
that’s why i never call on y’all to be around
’cause you see how this money can change everything

instead they getting together with me so we both can get rich
when i’m outta town, these n*gg*z busy tryna f*ck with my b*tch
same n*gg*z spend they money till the sh*t’ll diminish
i hit ’em off and turn around and come right back when it finish

i said i’m tired of these n*gg*z, that’ll owe me so much sh*t
that they can’t pay me back for, f*ck all the dumb sh*t
sometime we can’t forgive whatever balances off
‘specially when n*gg*z cross the line that n*gg*z never should cross

realized and thus i state the same sh*t, get the range
the more money n*gg*z get, sh*t around you will change
even though n*gg*z’ll flip and say, “he the one changed”
f*ck you, the dude’ll just’ll justify, takin’ his sh*t from you

the more money i get, i get more dangerous stupid
’cause i been broke before and i refuse to go back to it
and while i sweep these n*gg*z up under the rug with a broom
if i never see these friends again, that sh*t’ll be too soon

sh*t is real like every wind in my breath
and that’s on everything i love,
blood of my blood, flesh of my flesh

they see my name in lifestyle and say i changed
they so cold i know that they’re out to get me
and all those people i call my friends, let it go
that’s why i never call on y’all to be around
’cause you see how this money can change everything
