Im ridin filthy in the Beamer
Cause i can have Leemon or Colina bring it to a misdemeanor. -Lloyd Banks (Changes)
Just my vest, and my semi, in the back, of the Bentley
Enage, a mirage, see I'm there, then I'm gone
Cause my lawyers are strong and my money is long
So when I'm right I'm right, and when I'm wrong I'm right
I hit your ass up right, nigga it's nighty-night -50 Cent
