City Of Dope – Yukmouth

Uh, welcome! uh, little boys and girls
Listen, I’m bout to lace yall motherfuckers
about Oakland, the City of Dope
The first place in the world to ever sell base rock
nigga, crack rock, they put it there to get rid
of the Panthers, but they really created this ballin
what, what, nigga

Verse 1:

Me and my niggas trying to ride drop
buy rocks then we buy blocks
from the same dope fiends on my block who buy rocks
want supply hot
weight servin cakes like IHOP
ever since them last motherfuckers got shot
police been hot on my spot
spot cops FBI watch
got fiber-optic shit up in the pole
showing my whole clique on crime watch
we let non-stop and show our faces
so what the case is
we wide on TV but still the grind don’t stop
nigga this Oakland, the city of dope
You know where that crack shit was invented
and smoked by these ghetto chemists years ago
on Plymouth street we call the block
Plymouth Rock
the first place like the world to ever sell base rocks
now check it,
the legendary Phoenix Mitchell put it down
so tough they had to make a movie about the town
but called it Nino Brown
That bullshit New Jack City
is really based upon this place we call Crack City
Oakland, Cali we act shitty
think crack’s the answer
to get rid of these revolutionary Black Panthers
Smokin’ blow and takin (???) like Jo-Jo Dancer
Or sniff it up your nose and ball out of control
like Tony Montana
house in Atlanta
3-car garage
our ghetto superstars was hard
young niggas touch a mil-ticket
before they life behind bars
niggas get caught with like eighty kilos
hidden in the wall
but shit ain’t hidden at all
from these cocaine sniffin dogs
same with the law
shit in your draws when they get your ass
and let the ballers ball, get the cash
till they get to your ass
I’ve never seen a baller fall on his knees
and snitch so fast
plea bargain run after them niggas
that hang out with your ass
no wonder why that bitch-ass nigga got out
so quick, so fast
came on the block my niggas saw you
choppin’ it up with task
now that’s a violation
nigga can’t chop it up with task
so while the trial awaits
some nigga walks up and pumped his ass
Because the niggas in the O are hard as fuck
we sell peruvian flake, get it powdered, or rocked up
don’t want nothin from life but to retire from the game
motherfuckin city of cocaine,

city of dope
East Oakland, yeah that’s right
the city of dope
East Oakland, yeah that’s right

Verse 2:

them task folks can’t stop us
high school niggas get caught with a hundred G’s
stashed in his locker along with a chopper
niggas be ballin like a doctor, or a surgeon
M. C. Hammer splurgin’
he bought up countless brand new helicopters
and suburbans, now he hurtin
the feds spilled they base downtown
so now its curtains
Niggas be perpin’ off
certain it’s gon’ be a sweep
dope feind came through last week
told me its gonna be a sweep
1991’s the number nigga
end of the summer
niggas ain’t ridin no fuckin hummers
we ride under buckets and try to stay on the slunder
