Get Stupid lyrics
verse 1
when we pull up to the light the people all stare
four niggas in the benz with the dredlock hair
smoke everywhere waivin at mavericks
with the woodgrain davens and the license plate rattlin

we mental we ignorant by we go dumb dude
gas break dip we call it yokin
do a donut in yo whip we call it ghostin
get stupid its what we do
ghost ride the whip while we dance on the hood

(Noun, Informal/Slang) The Yay Area, or simply "The Yay"m is a conjugation of the Bay Area or The Bay, that incorporates the term Yay, both as a play on the word "Yay" to refer to joyfulness but also the regionally-specific slang term "Yay" which was a popular way to refer to cocaine in the Bay Area, popularized during the Hyphy Movement music era, by Andre Nickatina in the song "Ayo For Yayo."
Me and Dre are going to back the Yay Area.
