    Default words in lyric

    Ah yeah...
    Uhh
    Uhh
    Hollar if Ya Hear me

    Yeah...

    Here we go
    Turn it up
    Let's start
    From block ta block
    We're snatchin'hearts
    And jackin' marks
    And tha punk police can't fade me
    And maybe
    We can have peace someday 'G'
    But right now I got my mind set up
    Lookin down tha barrell of my 9
    Get up
    Cause it's time to make tha pay back phat
    To my brothers on tha block--better stay strapped black
    And accept no substitutes
    I bring truth to tha youth tear tha roof off tha ol'school

    Oh no, I won't turn tha other cheek
    In case ya can't see us while we burn the other week
    Now we gotta make it smash
    Blast
    How long will it last, till tha broke get more cash
    Until then
    Raise up!
    Tell my young black males
    Blaze up!
    Lifes a mess don't stress
    Test
    I'm givin ..[????]
    Much love to my brothers in tha pen
    See ya when I free ya
    If not, when they shut me in
    Once again, is there no one else strapped
    Keep ya hands on ya gat
    Now ya boys watch ya back
    Cause in tha alleys of cali i'ma tell ya
    Mess with tha best and tha vest couldn't help ya
    Scream, if ya feel me
    See it clearly? your too near me

    Chorus

    Hollar if Ya Hear me
    Hollar if Ya Hear me
    Hollar if Ya Hear me

    Pump ya fists like this
    Hollar if ya hear me
    (pump, pump) if ya pissed
    To tha sell-outs livin' it up
    One way or another you'll be givin it up
    I guess cause i'm black boy
    I'm supposed to say 'peace', sing songs, and get capped on
    ?
    But it's time for tha new plan, BAM!
    I'll be swingin' like a one man clan
    Here we go
    Turn it up
    Don't stop
    To my homies on tha block
    Gettin' dropped by cops
    I'm still around for ya
    Keepin' my sound
    Underground for ya
    And i'ma throw a changup
    Quayle, like you never brought my name up
    Now my homies in tha backstreets
    Tha blackstreets
    They fear me when they rollin in they phat jeeps
    This ain't just a rap song
    A black song
    Tellin all my brothers, get they strap on
    And look for me in tha struggle
    Hustlin' to tha other brotha's bubble

    Chorus

    Hollar if Ya Hear me
    Hollar if Ya Hear me
    Hollar if Ya Hear me

    Will I quit, will I quit?
    They claimin'that i'm violent
    But still I kick
    Representin'
    Never give up on a good thing
    Wouldn't stop it if we could
    It's a hood thing
    And now i'm like a major threat
    'Cause I remind you of the things you were made to forget
    Bring tha noise
    To all my boyz
    Know tha real from tha bustas
    And the decoys
    And if ya hustle like a real 'G'
    Pump ya fists if ya feel me
    Hollar if Ya Hear me
    Learn to survive in tha nine-tre
    I make crime pay
    I was in crime pay
    Whatever it takes to make a stand
    Cause nobody else'l give a damn
    So we live like caged beasts
    Waitin' for tha day to let tha rage free
    Still me, till they kill me
    I love it when they fear me
    Hollar if Ya Hear me

    Chorus

    Hollar if Ya Hear me
    Hollar if Ya Hear me
    Hollar if Ya Hear me
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`
    what do the words in red stand for?
    make me manic

    I don't know them all, but here are the ones I do. A question mark means I'm either not sure or don't know. Here are some links to sites dealing with slang:

    The spelling is more phonetic and reflects their pronunciation. It's also a music that doesn't set out to follow rules.
