(Ugh, yo, yo)
I get it crackin' like a bad back
Bitch talkin' she the queen when she lookin' like a lab rat,
I'm Angelina, You Jennifer,
Come on, bitch. You see where Brad at
Ace my wrists-is, then I piss on bitches,
You can suck my diznik, if you take this jizz-is,
You don't like them disses, give my ass some kisses
Yeah they know what this is, givin' this the business
Cause I pull up and I'm stuntin' but I ain't a stuntman
Yes I'm rockin' Jordans but I ain't a jumpman
B!tches play the back cause they know I'm the front man
Put me on the dollar cause Im who they trusting
Ayo SB, what the fucks good? We ship platinum, them bitches are shipping wood
'Em nappy headed hoes, but my kitchen good
I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish
a bitch would.

[Hook] You a stupid hoe, you a, you a stupid hoe [x3]
You a stupid hoe, (yeah) you a, you a stupid hoe

You a stupid hoe, you a, you a stupid hoe (you stupid, stupid)
You a stupid hoe, you a, you a stupid hoe (you stupid, stupid)

Look Bubbles, go back to your habitat,
MJ gone and I aint having that,
How you gon' be the stunt double to the nigga monkey,
Top of that I'm in the Phantom looking hella chunky.
Ace my wrist-is, then I piss on bitches,
You can suck my diznik, if you take this jizz-is,
You don't like them disses, give my ass some kisses
Yeah they know what this is, givin' this the business
Cause I pull up in that Porsche, but I ain't a Rossi
Pretty bitches only can get in my posse
Yes, my name is Roman, last name is Zolanski
But no relation to Roman Polanski
Hey yo, baby bop, f-ck you and your EP,
Who's gassin' this hoe? BP?
Hmm, thinks, 1,2,3, do the Nicki Minaj blink,
Cause these hoes so busted,
Hoes is so crusty, these b!tches is my sons,
And I don't want custody.
Hoes so busted,
