[DMX:]

Told y'all niggaz
Ya just don't listen
Why must you be hard headed
Tried to explain, but ya didn't hear me though
Ya know, grrrrrr

Uh
One two one two, come through run through
Gun who, oh you don't know what the gun do
Some do, those that know are real quiet
Let me think you wanna try it, fuck around and start a riot
Niggas gonna buy it, regardless because I'm the hardest
rap artist and I'ma start this
Shit up foreal, get up and feel, my words
I make herbs split up and squeal
Ill is all I've been hearin lately
Niggaz hate me, wanna duck tape me and make me
put their brains on the wall, when I brawl
Too late for that 911 call
Niggaz stay beefin but a lot of them bluffin
But not me because I'ma nigga that can get out of them cuffs
You think a lot of them tough
Not just for frotin
When I hit them niggaz like 'What you want?'
the battle turns into a hunt
With the dog right behind niggaz chasin em down
We all knew that you was pussy
but I'm tastin it now
And never give a dog blood
because raw blood
I have a dog like one bitin whatever
All up in ya gut
Give it to them raw like that
and ain't no love I do em all like that
Four right up in they back
Clak Clak
Close your eyes baby, it's over
Forget it, happened in front off your buildin but
nobody knows who did it
What
Where my dogs at?
What what
Where my dogs at?
Uh
Where my dogs at?
What what
Where my dogs at?
Uh
Where my dogs at?
What what
Where my dogs at?
Uh
Where my dogs at?
What what

Niggas is pussy
Keep me runnin from the werewolf, owww
Howling at the moon on the roof
Eh, ah, no, get em
Ten niggas on him, hope God's with him
Give me the bat, let me split him
I'll have em where the pillow and the casket won't fit him
Only reason I did him, he wouldn't fight back
Trieed to strike back
Left him like that, layin up with the white hat
Gettin right back at ya when I snatch ya
up out the grave, nuthin but bones and ashes
Hittin niggaz with gashes to the head
Straight to the white meat but the street stay red
But this girl gave me head for free
Cause they see, who I'ma be by like 2003
That Nigga D took it there
He thought it was a joke
He went through like 20 G's and thought that
I was broke, stupid
That's what you get for thinkin and eventually
found that's what you get for stinkin
Blowin up the spot when you rot
plus if it gets hot they know you dipped
for four squared blocks
Hit em with the ox to the grill
Eh, ah, kill nigga kill
Yet still they don't know I'ma rob who
That dog DMX is a muthafuckin problem
Aight


2 Ruff Ryders Anthem'

[Chorus(2x):]
Stop, drop, shut 'em down open up shop
Oh, no
That's how Ruff Ryders roll

[DMX:]

Niggaz wanna try, niggaz wanna lie
Then niggaz wonder why, niggaz wanna die
All I know is pain
All I feel is rain
How can I maintain, with madd shit on my brain
I resort to violence, my niggaz move in silence
Like you don't know what are style is
New York niggaz the wildest
My niggaz is wit' it
You want it? come and get it
Took it then we split it
You fuckin' right we did it
What the fuck you gonna do, when we run up on you
fuckin' wit' the wrong crew, don't know what we goin' thru
I'ma have ta show niggaz how easily we blow niggaz
When you find out there's somemore niggas, that's runnin with your niggaz
Nothin' we can't handle, break it up and dismantle, light it up like a candle
just cause I can't stand you
Put my shit on tapes, like you bussin' grapes
Think you holdin weight? Then you haven't met the Apes

[Chorus(2x)]

Is ya'll niggaz crazy?
I'll buss you and be swazy
Stop actin' like a baby, mind your business lady
Nosy people get it too, when you see me spit at you
you know I'm tryin' ta get rid of you
Ya I know it's pitiful
That's how niggaz get down
Watch why niggaz spit round
Make ya'll niggaz kiss ground, just for talkin' shit clown
Oh you think it's funny then you don't know me money
It's about to get ugly, fuck it dog I'm hungry
I guess you know what that mean, come up off that green
Five niggaz or a fiend, don't make it a murder scene
Give a dog a bone, leave a dog alone
let a dog roam and he'll find his way home
Home of the brave, my home is a cage
and yo I'ma slave til' my home is a grave
I'ma pull paper, it's all about the papers
Bitches talkin' paper then how they wanna rape us

[Chorus(2x)]

Look what you dun started,
Asked for it, you got it
had it, should have shot it
Now your dearly departed
Get at me dog, did I rip shit with this one here I flip shit
Niggaz know when I kick shit
It's gonna be some slick shit
What was that look for, when I walked in the door
Oh you thought you was raw, boom not anymore
Cause now you on the floor, wishin you never saw me walk
through that door, with that 4 4
Now it's time for bed
Two more to the head, got the floor red
Yea that nigga's dead
Another unsolved mystery, It's goin' down in history
Niggaz ain't never did shit to me
Bitch ass niggaz can't get to me
Gots to make the move, got a point to prove
Got a make'em grove, got'em all like ooh
So to the next time, you hear this nigga ryhme
Try to keep your mind, on gettin pussy and crime

[Chorus(1x)]


3 Fuckin' Wit' D

[Quick Skit: gun fire]
[DMX:] TALK IS CHEAP MUTHAFUCKA!!!!!

[Verse one:]

[DMX:]
grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr...........
What's on y'all niggaz minds
fuckin' wit' me, y'all know somebody has
told you about fuckin' wit' D, stuck in
a tree is what you will be, like a cat
and I'm the dog at the bottom, lookin' up
what's that.
Your worst nightmare is I take it right there,
you got niggaz comin' where they at, right
where? I make 'em like air, floatin' away, wouldn't
tell what he was thinkin' so I opened a way,
Went from broken away, you know he hurt before he died,
makes you wonder if he lost his shirt before he died, only
two knew the answer and one of us is dead, so anyone who
seeks the truth can get it straight to head!
Than you andf him can discuss what I did, yeah it was
wrong dog but I slid, i'll repent one day, just not right
now, you hear my shit all on the street i'm kinda hot
right now!

Come on!

[Hooks (Chorus):]

I DON'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT
CH'YALL NIGGAZ CAUSE Y'ALL
AIN'T KILLIN' NUTTIN'!!!

I DON'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT
CH'YALL NIGGAZ CAUSE Y'ALL
AIN'T KILLIN' NUTTIN'!!!

[Verse two:]

I wanna break bread wit' da' katz
that I starve with, wanna hit the
malls with the same dogz I rob wit',
wanna be able to laugh with the niggaz
that I cried with, when it's over be like
these is tha niggaz that I died wit'.
What do you do when you find out in the
hall there's a rat, what do you do when
you find out that your dog is a cat,
Shit, on niggaz back, can't hold but two
so while you gettin' more gatz i'm puttin wholes
in you, snubnose will do, break 'em off real
proppa', need to keep it' spittin' but I ain't gonna stoppa', cocka, unlocka, let
'em go, give it to his man just to let him know,
All things considered it was real for' a minute,
got what was yourz and tried to steal sometin' wit
it, now feel sometin' hit it, your chest that is,
the best that is, is probaly the best that slid,
yo stress that kid!

[Hooks (Chorus):]

I DON'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT
CH'YALL NIGGAZ CAUSE Y'ALL
AIN'T KILLIN' NUTTIN'!!!

I DON'T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT
CH'YALL NIGGAZ CAUSE Y'ALL
AIN'T KILLIN' NUTTIN'!!!

[Verse 3:]

When Niggaz hear that dog bark,
they betta run, when police hear
that dog bark they betta come, they
expect tha same thing that's live,
and they lives will be lost, there
is a price to pay, how many lives
will be lost, COME ON!
Since I run with the devil i'm one
with the devil, I stay doin' dirt so
I'm gonna come with the shovel,
Hit chyou on a level of a madman who's mind's
twisted, Made niggaz dreams caught the last
train, mines missed it, Listed as a manic
depressin' with extreme paranoya! and dog
I got sometin' for ya! hear my name, feel my pain,
niggaz wanna steal my fame, but first feel
my reign, know what it's like to suffer, never
have enough of shit, startin' off hard than
only gettin' rougher! tougher, but than came
the greese, so if you wanna say peace, tame the beast!


4 Storm (Skit), The


5 Look Thru My Eyes

Judge not and shall be judged first
Die nigga, die nigga

[chorus]
Look in my eyes, see what I see
Do what I do, be what I be
Walk with my shoes that hurt your feet
And know why I lurk the streets

[DMX:]
Burning in hell, but don't deserved to be
Got niggas I don't even know that wanna murder me
It's because they heard of me
And they know that the Dark is for real
The bark is for real, when you see that spark it'll kill
Be poppin, robbin and chill, take it over there bark wit' it
From Ohio to Cali to Baltimore back to New York wit' it
Come through flyin', a 129
Up the school street cuz I come through mine
Barking my dogs, get at me nigga
arf arf arf
Get at me nigga
What the deal is, never forget what real is
Them cats that used to say X is the best know he still is
Can't help but feel this, putting goosebumps on your arms
Take you there if you want but I lose chunks with the bomb
Then come for the star
Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde and it's getting warm
Feel me yo

[chorus 2x]

[DMX:]
I can understand why y'all niggas is scared of me
And why the big dogs never wanted to play fair with me
Cuz I leave blood wherever I go, wherever I flow
Wherever I blow niggas who know I can go
Feel me yo
What is it about the Dark that gets niggas where they about to spark
About to bark, take it to the heart cuz it's real like that
Give him chills, but do I make him feel like that
Shit is real, what you don't know is gon' getcha
With the steal, what you don't know is gon' splitcha
I can blaze tracks
Make niggas play raps and raise stacks
Paybacks a bitch, didn't you used to say that
Play around in dirt, you get mugged
Cuz you know, I can either spread love or shed blood
And bloodshed turns to mudred and real sticky
Or I can hit you from roof, make it a quicky
For real

[chorus]

[DMX:]
I bear my soul, niggas wouldn't dare, my role
Gives a nigga a heart of gold but with a hole
Lost all control, my shoulders hold a lot of weight
Just like first time soldier eighth done told us not to hate
But then it's out of state, and it's too late
For change is to be made
That's what I get for fucking with strangers in the shade
This is it, that nigga's got to give me a place
For the same reason that fate, chose to give me away
Take away hate, now I'm supposed to love the one that cursed me
The one that wouldn't give me a cup of water when I was thirsty
It was always his versus me, but now I gotta teach him
Personal feelings put aside, cuz now I gotta reach him
What I'd like to do is turn my head, like I don't know him
But it seems like I've been called on to show him
So I'ma show him
And if you never met me, then you've no right to judge me
I've got a good heart but this heart can get ugly

[chorus 2x]

Feel the pain, feel the joy, of a man who was never a boy. For real.
arf arf, arf, arf, arf


6 Get At Me Dog
- (featuring Sheek of The Lox)

[DMX, (Sheek)]
(Yea I'm right here dog) Where my dogs at
(We right here dog) Where my dogs at
(I'm right here dog)

[DMX]
What must I go through to show you shit is real
And I ain't really never gave a fuck how niggaz feel
Rob then I steal, not cause I want to cause I have to
And don't make me show you with the Magnum
If you don't know by now then you slippin
I'm on some bullshit thats got me jackin, niggaz flippin
I got my man and them stay pretty like I'ma stay shitty
Crimey it's all for the money is you wit me
Hit the bitches, went out I could make the crime
And when it's on we transform like Optimus Prime
I'll form the head, roll out let's make it happen
If we ain't gonna get it wit them we'll take the cap down
Bust it off, gust it off on the softest niggaz
Money with the biggest mouth, yo let's rob this nigga
A novice nigga never made a sound
Breath too fuckin hard like you gettin bust down

[Hook : Sheek (DMX)]
Yo, yo ya n...az wanna be killers (get at me dog)
Ya n...az wanna feel us (get at me dog)
Ya n...az want the real (Get at me dog)

[DMX]
Rrrrrr arf arf what the deal

[Hook]

[DMX]
Rrrrrr arf arf what the deal
Nowadays, Don't get to good for certain niggaz, I'm hurtin niggaz
What you doin robbin niggaz, jerkin niggaz, stickin niggaz
Cause they deserve it; with money got murdered
They know we died slow if they heard it
The nigga there blew up the spot a while
and the mother fucker ain't got shot in a while
And the stacks will light up, will fuck the night up
blow everything in sight up
fuck around and I'll have your ass right up
What makes you think, you wasn't able to stand
I got shit that'll disable a man with the wave of a hand
The days are longer and seems like I'm wastin time
I've got a lot of dreams but I'm not really chasin mine
I suck it all up like a sicka fly
Cause nowadays gettin' by, catchin ???, an occasional meal and
gettin high, I live to die, That's where I'm headed
let your man hold somthin, now it's all about you can get it

[Hook]

[DMX]
Rrrrrr arf arf what the deal
Well in the back wit ya faggot ass face down
Lucky that you breathin but you dead from the waste down
The fuck is on your mind? Talkin that shit that you be talkin
And I bet you wish you never got hit cause you be walkin
But shit happens and fuck it, you would of did ya dirt
niggaz is wonderin how the fuck you hid your skirt
Right under they eyes like a surprise to the guys
just one of their mans was a bitch in disguise
fuckin with cats in order heads and slaughter more kids
Let me hollar at you all that wanna borrow the raw shit (ah-oh!)
Knahmean? I'm just robbin to eat
And there's at least a thousand of us like me mobbin the street
When we starve and we eat whatever's there
Come on you know the code in the street, whatever's fair
Blood stains and chalk, cause yo man couldn't walk
After the talk, heard him out at 1133 of New York
Transformin us niggaz so get it quick
You know for real that nigga can't fuckin suck my dick
And it's gon' take all these niggaz in the rap game
to barely move me, cause when I blow shit up
I have niggaz fallin' like white bitches in a scary movie
Ah, you know I don't know how to act
Get too close to niggaz, it's like:
"Protected by viper, stand back"
What's that, a bunch of niggaz you was killas demented
fuck y'all what me with this coward finish him descend it


7 Let Me Fly

[DMX:]
Uh. Yea. Uh. If you love something let it go, if it
comes back to you it's yours. If it doesn't, it never was.
Hold me down baby

[Chorus(2x):]
Either let me fly, or give me death
Let my soul rest, take my breath
If I don't fly I'ma die anyway, I'ma live on
but I'll be gone any day

Hold me down, niggaz wanna know me now
Didn't want ta play wit' me when to show me how
No meow
Is it all about the bark?
Let the dog lose baby it's about to spark
Light up the night, like the 4th of July
Niggaz know, when I let go, niggaz die
wit' this Y and you don't know you slow like Baltimore
If you ain't tryin' ta go ya blow
I soke up all the pain and except it in silence
When I let go it's violence cause the wildest
leaves the dog barkin' up the tree for the cat
in the fog but ya'll niggaz see is the bat
Flappin' away wit' em blind like Stevy
Niggas don't hear me, still tryin' to see me
Stop being greedy, ya heard what I said
Let me go, let me flow on my bed

[Chorus(2x)]

I sold my soul to the devil, and the price was cheap
A yo it's cold on this level cause it's twice as deep
But you don't hear me, ignorance is blisning and so on
Sometimes it's better to be taught dumb
Shall I go on
You don't want no real, what the deal is a mystery
How is it I can live and make history
If you don't see it then it, wasn't ment for you to see
If you wasn't born wit' it then, it wasn't ment for you to be
But you can't blame me for not wantin' to be hound
lock down in a cell wit' a soul gettin' dwelled
This is hell, go get the devil and get me the key
but can't be worst than the curse that was given ta me
It's what I live for, you take away that and I'm gone
There's a difference between, doin' wrong and being wrong
and that ain't right
Just keep it fair baby
Put me in the year, and I'll take it there baby
Yes

[Chorus(2x)]

I'm a flow regardless because I'm an artist until I'm trapped
I'ma continue to hit he hardest whether I scrap or rap
Give me death but you ain't my friend
I see it in your eyes, you contemplate my end
You waitin' for that bin in the road, where you were told
that you would go, when you were old
and if you died young, it was told
So what the dilly, what it was worth
Think back 26 years, be like what of his birth
What if it was a miscarriage and I never existed
Have I given something that have been taken away you
would of missed it
Didn't know, did I persisted?
It was the call of the wild
I'm here to say what's in my heart, and you call it a style
Don't put it in the cage, don't mistreat it
You say you hunger for knowledge, here it is eat it
Another soul completed is another thought captured
Let me do my thing I got it locked wit' this rap shit

[Chorus(2x)]

Or give me death, uh uh uh, or take my breath
I'ma die anyway, but I'll be gone any day
Where my niggaz?
[3x] Uh ha ha, for my niggaz
