Quotable Lyrics (Redman)
90s era, I look back
Everybody had the pen writing cooked crack
Nowadays when I hear bars, I watch URL
If Big L was here you wouldn't act so cavalier
Lil n*ggas beef on the internet
Big boys beef when the bread incorrect
Overall, most of these n*ggas only beef with mom when they have dinner guests
