"Shook Ones, Part I (Original Version)"

[Verse 1: Prodigy]
The most violent of the violentest crimes, we give life to
If these Queensbridge kids don't like you
We bring drama of the worst kind of enemies
Your first time will be your last Earth memories
It's only your own fault, I gave you fair warning
Beware of killer kids who don't care
Unaware fools will be dealt with in time
It ain't a mystery in how I form the words in rhyme
In nineteen hundred and ninety square
All shook n*ggas is supposed to have fear
Tryna get a piece of this pie, we don't share
Prepare for the worst 'cause I been there
Try to keep a positive mind and walk a straight line don't work
So n*ggas is forced to do dirt
And God made dirt, so this dirt won't hurt
If I listen to the lessons and the rules I learnt
On these streets for nineteen years and not leaving
My first priority's to reach twenty-one breathing
Forever beef, nobody will ever be even
So I grab the heat before breezing
Lost in this foul mind-state, I can't keep straight thinkin'
But I keep my eyes on the Earth without blinking
It's hard to be a man in this land of the venom
Any man try to front, he get slugs in him, because

[Chorus: Prodigy]
He ain't a crook, son, son
He just a shook one, shook one
(Shook one)
We live the life, that of diamonds and guns
And numerous ways that we choose to earn funds, earn funds
Some n*ggas get shot, locked down, and turn nuns
Cowardly hearts and straight up shook ones, shook ones
He ain't a crook, son
He just a shook one, shook one

[Verse 2: Havoc]
For every rhyme I write, it's twenty-five to life
To all my peoples in the Bridge, know what I'm talking 'bout, right?
Ain't no time for hesitation, that only leads to incarceration
You don't know me, there's no relation
'Cause Queens n*ggas don't play
I don't got time for the he-say she-say, I'm bigger than that
Claiming that you pack a gat, but you scared to get locked
Once you get upon the Island, change your ways and stop
Thirteen years in the projects of hard times to live in
Wake up in the morning, thank God I'm still living
Sometimes I wonder do I deserve to live?
Or I am gonna burn in hell for all the sh*t I did?
No time to dwell on that 'cause my brain reacts
Front if you want, n*gga, lay on your back
I don't fake jacks, kid, you know I bring it to you live
Stay in a child's place, kid, you out of line
Criminal minds thirsty for a recognition mission
I'm strictly sipping E&J like got my mind flippin'
I'm bugging, digging my ways out of holes by hustlin'
Get that loot, kid, you know my motherf*ckin' function
As long as I'm alive, I'ma live illegal
And once I get on, I'ma put on all my peoples
React quick, spit lyrics like MACs, I hit
Your dome up when I roll up
Don't be caught sleeping, 'cause I'm creeping
You just a shook one

[Chorus: Prodigy]
We live the life, that of diamonds and guns
And numerous ways that we choose to earn funds
Some n*ggas get shot, locked down, and turn nuns
Cowardly hearts and straight up shook ones, shook ones
He ain't a crook, son
He just a shook one, shook one
We live the life, that of diamonds and guns
And numerous ways that we choose to earn funds
Some n*ggas get shot, locked down, and turn nuns
Cowardly hearts and straight up shook ones, shook ones
He ain't a crook, son, crook, son
He just a shook one, shook one

[Outro: Prodigy]
Yeah
