Chorus:
Gotta be the illest brother to claim respect
It takes the illest brother just to get respect
Got to be the illest brother when its time to get wreck
Got to be the illest brother when I get my mic check

Im one of the illest brothers known to man
But if you dont understand, see Im a grown man
And I stand 58 and 3 quarters
Giving orders to my sqaudron cuz Im like the sergeant
Or general but let me keep this minimal
I used to hang with kids who like to live trife with a knife
Cutting kids for fun and pulling out much guns
And like riflery champs fellas start to get real amped
Dead bodies lay stamped to the pavement so I gave it some thought
Remembering the brothers who are gone now
I will make a strong vow to make things right
Ignite the mic, get hype and all that
Suckers try to menace but they always fall
Flat to the ground as I astound come around
Ill put you down about the brothers who think theyre the boss
Think theyre getting large but in the end they pay the cost
Of their lives and that aint the way to go out
Even take their boys with em cause they know their boys will go out
But when it comes to facing some time
Theyre like crying like weeping, wanna call mom dukes
But mom dukes is fed, fed up with the shit you did
She knows that you shot and she knows that you cripples kids
But whos to judge when youre trying to survive
The one who moves first might be the one to stay alive
So when you think youre hard and dominating the set
Just remember the illest brother claims respect!

Like I said Im an ill kid, so never dare test me
They wanna arrest me cuz Im causing a frenzy
Fake gangsters come and fake gangsters go
Real gangsters chill cuz real gangsters know
That quietly you stalk your prey on the down low
Cuz too much talk will get you beef on the street
And brothers in the city have to live this way
It may cause dismay but imma tell it anyway
Yo guns are easy to get and like a puppet
Some young kid is gonna be the subject of internal oppression
An example of hard times
Cuz to make it out the trap in your mind its a hard climb
But even if you change and come right and exact
Theres another brother scheming so just watch your back
I know a brother who thought he had it all
But little did he know he was bound for a down fall
Hed pick up the heater and go stick somebody
He wouldnt give a damn if he killed somebody
Cuz if somebody would get in the way of him getting loot
Thered be no hesitation hed just shoot
Its like the good, the bad and the ugly
Except its reality and you dont see it on tv
Brothers keep dying in the streets cuz the streets are designed
To keep you from having peace of mind
I know an old man, hes got a rifle to stifle
Any young punk, he hides it under his bunk
And I know a kid whos been to jail
And he told me that the system had failed him
So now hes out the joint and hes like flippin on kids
And the people in his neighborhood are flippin their wigs
But you gotta check the move cuz theres a reason
A method to the madness and you know what Im meaning
Cuz rather than being the herb, vic, or chump
You can be just like my man cold holding the pump
But living like that you take a chance with your life
But some things in life, sometimes will make you uptight
Im like an avalanche of knowledge pounding down all fools
All fakes, all snakes
And ones who try to break the rules and regulations
Stipulations made by the gangstarr
You try to flex muscle but you know you cant hang ha
Youre making me vexed but yeah you can go next
Just remember the illest brother claims respect

Chorus repeat

Yo money dont front you know you blew your chance
And now its my turn so imma take command
Cuz Im like the one whos got all the juice
I always get loose I got the balls to reduce your crew
Very easily I got more ammo
Im like the ill kid the psycho man yo
Cuz now Im past the point and I aint gonna return
And when it comes to your destruction I aint really concerned
About the consequences cuz Im living day to day
So who are you to comment about me and my ways.
I get my attitude from living and I never forget
You got to be the illest brother just to claim respect!
