lyrics

Verse:

Dear Tony the Tiger
Please don't send me no mo
No more Phrosted Phlakes please
I got enough in this bowl
U see cuz all the empty promises is takin a toll
And dealing with these Hollywood types is gettin real old

Ain't no love in this game
We just out in the wild
Walkin round LA at night, just like a motherless child
They steal yo rights & yo gig then look at u and smile
Then we all together takin Grammy pictures like pals

Don't want no parts of it
I put my heart in this
I shook hands, I kissed babies that smelled like phart & piss
News phlash new dudes
U don't have to go through this
Bending over just to pay your bills & feed your kids
You know they say it ain't rape, if u agree to the terms
And now im feelin like Féla, "Burn Hollywood Burn"
And ima take my own chances
I ain't waitin my turn
Cuz KEiTH PHELPS is here to stay
And homie bump what u heard


Hook:

Ayo I'm tired of the phlakes
The phlakes x6
And yo I'm tired of the phlakes and the phakes
That'll smile in my face, turn around and try to stab me with a shank
And I don't have time to waste messin round with these phlakes
I don't have time to waste messin round with these phlakes
Yea these phlakes and these phakes
That'll smile in my face, turn around and try to stab me with a shank

Verse:

Ayo I just wrapped up 2 projects, on to the next one
Might even hit the gym so a brotha can flex one
Pass up wack opportunities, while I make the best ones
Let The Lord be my agent so I'll get all the blessed ones

Cuz the way y'all handle business is disgusting to me
Guess I should be disappointed
But it's funny to me
See cuz that placement wasn't nothin but some money to me
I got the mic now
I'm way bigger than just makin beats

I used to want somebody's cosign to change my life
If I could just get them to see em every thing would be right
And now the only cosign I want is one from Christ
Cuz everybody else cosign come with a price

I been kinda goin in on the regular, daily
Bowin out this industry because it's so freakin shady
I even left the Twitter cuz it was makin me lazy
And this the kinda junk that make a brotha go "Crazy"

Hook 2x
