(Verse 1- Prodigy)
When it comes to teks, I'm similar to a menace
Like Ol'Dog sniffin caine couldn't **** with the damage
That I do to a bastard, Keep playin around won't be nobody strong enough to (Hold You Down!)
Yeah, I leave 'em in shock
People got sentenced to life they stressed in the box
Most of my friends got murdered and damn I feel lost
Wish I was there when they popped off to (Hold You Down!)
Nobody but me, I got a whole gang of killers but that's how you gotta think
If you want to make it alive all in one piece
It takes much more of them things to (Hold You Down!)
Yeah, yo sonny, I'm well connected in the streets
We loyal to each other when it comes to that beef We get (Down!)
Don't worry 'bout a thing Dun Dun I foreverly (Hold You Down!)

And I love this proffession but I'll throw it all away in a second cause I'm (Down!)
For the cause when my life is threatened
Take this and maybe that will (Hold You Down!)
Now you know how we cooks the pot up
You could get up in some things you would not want to so slow (Down!)
And watch how I mold the sound So when I ain't around the music still (Hold You Down!)
But I'm a keep my eyes open yo I don't even blink
Keep my pen movin down the line I don't even think just write it (Down!)
On the paper get my vocals in sync

And when we get to the telly I'ma bend you over and (Hold You Down!)

Aiyyo! Mobb, Thugs, Drops, and Trucks

Somebody finna get wigged, homie I'll hold yo outfit and (Hold You Down!)
I seriously doubt it, my chain cost quart a mill now imagine what I spent gun shoppin
Get bullets by the thousands and they say that we whylin
And I'm far from recluse, we fight on front lines with them fullies in the coupe
Before the drama and the shootin, then I take the bullets and die to (Hold You Down!)

(Chorus)
(Outro)
(Soon You"ll Un-Der-Stand!)
