or
Beanie Sigel

If you could look at me now

My hair was knotty then
Nose snotty then
Sweats, no pockets then
Sweatin', no problems then
Facts? Off the potty then
News? Watchin' karate then
Muddas playin' double dutch,
She was hopscotchin' then
Me Girl watchin' then
Crooked little eye. (eye)
Humpback, tryna hump that
Yes I (I)
Couldn't play because I'm poo
They thought I was mockin' them
Grams
Said I was devilish
Been knew I was rotten then
School
Been dropped out,
Neva really clockin' in
Pops
Been dropped out,
Neva really stoppin' in
Moms
Tryna lock me out
Cops
Tryna lock me in
Damn, Devilish one with Pelletguns,
Grew from,
Slingshotin' them, (uh)
To slingshootin' them
Dice all day,
Kept hook shot
Nice all day
Right hook fight
Nice all day
Nigga left for a night
To keep money Right all day
Break a night all

If you could look at me now
If you could look at me now

If you could look at me now
Let me smoke with you young'in

Y'all was poplockin' Then
Cardboard boxin' Then
Me
I was up the center
3D
Lockin' in
Strong arm
Robbin then
Started car
Poppin' in
Me
Skinny toots, Telly boots, Marley Park and them
Got in trouble with Passyunk
Wilson park n them
Other Jacks, diffeferent sets
Started sparkin' him
I had the fourteen gauge,
My nigga Larken then
How it made front page,
He caught a spark from them
He got gauged in his leg,
Still was walkin' then
8toss, shook it off
Kept sparkin' them
All heads ain't help,
We had more heart then them
We squashed that war,
Got some wall,
Stayed apart from them
Down in Iraq, they give me dap,
I'm takin' pounds from clowns,
You shake my hand like a grown man (grown man)
Ya ain't see it like Tony and old man,
Mob style for real,
This is my lifestyle for real.

If you could look at me now

Now its big businesses,
You see them big Bentley skids
You see them Bee's on those shiny ass
Rims of his,
You can't find him in the woods,
With his kids with his
Mob cookin' breakfast with no S.W.A.T.
A good day this is.
You could bullshit with rap if you want,
I pull the bullshit to the back
And put rap in front.
Now I'm State Prop flickin' it
State Prop stitchin' it.
I'm paper soldier y'all,
Your boy gettin' rich

I see a kids hair knotty now..
They nose snotty now
So what I do,
I try to turn they frown around
I make 'em smile a day
If only for a while a day
I give them dollarday
That's my ghetto holliday
I must say for myself
I'm feelin proud today,
My life is shaped
Like I run about a mile a day
I dedicate this to the one's that
Counted me out
And looked at me down
Just look at me now.

I know y'all see me
Look at me now man
I'm killin' this shit
Sheed, check your boy out man
Your boy got businesses man
I done came up on my own nigga
I'm a C-E-O nigga
Clothing line, cartoons, movies, name it nigga
Bullshit with rap if you want,
I'm a big boy toy driver nigga
With unlaced air force 1's with no license
Holla at me nigga.
Y'all can't tell me shit,
Look at me now.
