* also appears on the o.s.t. "juice"

[too $hort]
So you want to be a gangster.. all that shit
Smoke any motherfucker, dont even trip
You be hard as hell, take whatever you want
Punk suckers wanna front -- they get done
Cause you a gangster -- nuttin more nuttin less
Put my boy to the test and catch one in your chest
Since he was young, homeboy wont back down
Cause real gangsters, always hold that frown
Until you lose control, then you sell your soul
To the devil motherfucker cause youre way too cold
And all the people hide and just run inside
Cause you keep usin yo gat commitin homicide
Boy I tell ya, life is way too $hort
Another brother just got smoked
And you killed him -- aint that a bitch?
Cause it really aint shit

(gangsta, gangsta)
Shoot em up (gangsters)
That aint cool (gangsters)
Aint that a bitch (gangsters)
Shoot em up (gangsters)
That aint cool (gangsters)

Let me tell you somethin youngster.. you got it all wrong
Gangsters dont live that long
I had gangster potnahs get they heads to off
For some of that gangster shit, get caught in the cross
You want stripes, take yo ass to the service
Cause when its on, aint no time to get nervous
Pull the trigger.. yeah you did it
Youse a gangster and I got to admit it
But youse a youngbuck.. you aint learned yet
Killing dont make you a vet
Get out the fast line -- stick with the homeboys
Ready made gangster get gone boy
Cause where Im from its the same old shit
You call them shots, when youre down with the click
Niggaz dyin everyday but thats a black thang
You either sell dope, or your gangbang
But you got the biggest heart in the click man
You did a murder, and now youre a hitman
All your homies tryin to tell you, that aint cool
Playin shoot em up, like a fuckin fool
But youse a gangster, one they cant destroy
Dont even give a fuck, about your boys
You go for self, you wanna be on top?
Fucked around and now your brothers shot

(gangsters)
Shoot em up (gangsters)
That aint cool (gangsters)
Aint that a bitch (gangsters)
Shoot em up (gangsters)
That aint cool (gangsters)
(gangsters) aint that a bitch
(gangsters) and it dont stop
To the beat
