Man, they go and tell me like
you never know who your true friends until you ah umm
both got a little bit of money
I mean cause y’all both broke
then there’s no strain on the relationship, y’all both broke
And if you got money and he ain’t got no paper
He still needs you so you’ll never know how he really feel about you
When y’all both get some paper, you’ll see

[R. Kelly (Jay-Z)]
We used to get money together, phone honies together
Pushin chromed out twinkies in custom coach leather
You claim it’s all love, but nigga it’s whatever
Cause this is business, it ain’t personal
Same dream, same team, same schemes (mm)
We even sold to the same damn fiends (how real is dat?)
Ain’t no rules in this war for this green
This is business, and it ain’t personal


Look, I’m a grown man dog
And I ain’t got time to be runnin behind y’all
I know when I first started it was crazy to y’all
“He’s gon’ start his own label, he’ll never be able”
Well, nigga you’ve been wrong before
And you’ll be wrong again if you bet against him
We move through the hood like identical twins
But it just so happen that a nigga made it rappin
You showed your true colors, y’all niggaz stay yappin
That don’t stop him, a nigga weigh platinum
Stop through the hood, to say what’s happenin? (sup nigga)
Fake hugz (uh-huh) fake whassup
Fake love, fake f**k, fake thugs
Gotta one myself for your fake shit, I raise up
Hop in my wheels and I peel, streets are blazed up (uh-huh)
About my bid’ness dog, y’all need to stay up – one

[Chorus: R. Kelly]
