I was Cool with You from the Get Go
Loved the Way You Moved Confidently Through Streets, Uptown or the Ghetto
Everybody See You Comin, Start Crackin them Jokes
how You a Big Man n' Kinda Old, but then they Choke on the Smoke
You Used to Roll POD from the Southtown till they Moved On Up
Got a Tour Bus, Passed You Down, Turned You Shadow Locust
You Was Hiphop Ever Since, Rolled with Us to Represent
Carried Our Gear to the Back Door of Every Event
I Remember You Like it was Yesterday
Could Never Go Less than a Hundred and Twenty on the Freeway
Bet You Never Seen a Tank Drive Like a Honda Civic Stick Shift
Tokyo Drift, Lickety-Split, -- Joe was Swift

Windshield Wipers to the BPM’s
RPM’s too, Keepin the Beat, Peepin them Gem’s, Creepin on Men
Pedal to the Metal, Gas Tank Hip Hopped in Heavy Metal
Your Life was Full Throttle, Got those Hot Blows, Pistons Never Settled
on the Highway Asphalt- People Followin the Lines
You Stairway to Heaven, Make Your Own Way, don't Follow No Lines
High Octane, Christ in the Veins, Life in the Fast Lane
Crank Case Cookin’, witha Manifold Destiny to Move Insane
Sometimes I Think how Much Music my Man Brought to Yall
n’ Never Even Seen a Show, Stayed in the Parkin Lot Security Guardin yall
the Gear and the Crew to Every States Stages
Took Us Places, Brought Us Culture, Plus Kept us the Safest

sub Chorus:
cause That's What Best Friends are For
When You Down, They Never Let You Stay on the Floor
if You Don't Got it, Man, they Never Let You Stay Poor
​Pick You Up, Carry You Through to Where You Gotta Be Door-to-Door

in No Time Flat, Burned Down the Line, Like Hell’s Eraser
and Hours Later, Still Topped Out on the Accelerator
when You Got Old You didn’t Act Like it --
Like You Ignored Every Scratch and Dent to Stay God’s Servant
how Many, Times at the Last Minute, I’d Hit You Up
but You was Always Ready to Roll, No Matter the Deal, that's Whassup
n’ I was Never Homeless, You Always Told Me I Got a Home with
Stay in the Back til You get Your Life Back on the Right Track, Uplift
when You Got Hurt, I had to Leave You to Go Get Help
Came Back to Save You, Found Out Some Dudes had Robbed You of Your Health
Smashed You Up, Took Your Shoes, Left you in a Ditch Singin the Blues
You Never Recovered from that Attack and We all Miss You
