DMX Life Is What You Make It Lyrics

Yo ill will, ruff ryders
what what, sraight like that

You a killer or a hustler, dealer or customer
Gangsta or buster, youngster or old n____
A weed head, a c__e sniffer
You rich or a broke n____
Know you all relate to this s___ that i wrote n____s
Lots of my mans trapped up in a max
Penatentary, sending me letters i answer back
That eventually, we all be bentley'ed out
Throwing campaigns, f___ it I'm running for White House
My n____s control Senate, pipe seats jeeps tinted
Mad Lewinsky chicks, some kinky s___
Did dirt now I knew it would come back one day
So I'm on point, scrap, prepare for gunplay
Stared at one face, thought it was beef he looked familiar
Ready to blast ,n____ gave me daps said I feel ya
Can't believe how my life changed
From the hood, the first time in my life I can say i did the right thing

Chorus: 4x
Life is what you make it n____, I'ma make it
No matter what it takes my n____, we gonna take it(uh)

uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Everyday s___, around the way s___ got me stressed (what)
So i keep on the vest in case a n____ wanna test (uh)
I got no time for games cause I'm all grown up
You wanna joke n____? laugh when you get blown up (come on)
See how funny it is when your kids aint got no father
Cause you played it sweet now you floating in the harbor (for real)
s___ is hectic so respect it for your health (what)
Didn't think it was right, you should've checked it yourself (come on)
Life is too short to get caught up in some dumb s___
Wake up one day, 40 years old on some b__b s___
Time flew by, you was too fly to see the light
Everyday it's getting darker then comes the night
Now what? (what) realize that you ain't got s___ (uh)
Not long ago you was the man on some hot s___
So just peep the flow yo, cause you already in this
Make sure your s___ is right kid and handle your business (uh huh)


Make history before you go
f___ the misery, you po we gettin doe
Except the ?dollars? other reasons why I'm living yo (why?)
Time is viable
Low and behold the young, black, and powerful
Got to eat yo, everyday my daughters feet grow
You wack and cheap with the doe, my heat could blow
Payin doctors when I'm born, a preacher when I'm buried
That's why cash is needed for my kids to inherit
Gotta pay just for living, tax life is a b'ness (business)
If you catch a bad deal, watch your life deminish
Deals made by God and the Devil, and we in it
p___s in the game, can't complain or say s___
Just strap up and hold on, hope for the best
prepare for the worse, no fears no nothing on earth
No tears if I'm dumped in a hearse, I won't be the first
Nor the last n____, let's get this cash n____
