lyrics

Random

The Man Ran hit em with a grand slam
I don't like to grandstand but
y'all know who I am fam
rolling like a boulder over whoever you rolling with
controlling this, I'm on the sticks- It's overwith
pay your debts, we rated X
walking in my shoes and you lose, cause they're called Fatal Steps
You know what it is, I'm a vet
past scuffles involved
involved steel pipes rocks bats and brass knuckles
you have trouble, my international staff
on Capital Ave, swinging and crackin the class
We back alley brawlin' till you falling
Everything is on the line tonight, I'm going all in

CHORUS
I don't know about yall
but I'm about to post up at the Oak Hill Mall
My cousin told me bout a scuffle going on
I wish I had a view from the school rooftop
Living like the king of River, City, River City
packing brass knuckles this is River City, River City
Getting gritty, getting gritty

Type
Stupid Cyndi, she's always held hostage/
These lame street gangs interrupt her shopping/
Rolling with the bosses, downtown where the Jocks is/
MegaRan will let a man get knocked out with boxes/
Separating jaws in this land of the lawless/
My acro circus might act as a problem/
We don't use revolvers, just kicks and punches/
Phil Mo is still broke and coming for your coin purse/
The boy's hurt, emerge Turk from the darkness/
Kids in Sticksville will get ill and barf up/
It's hard luck living in a city always battling/
I want to abandon it like the 3rd Wheel Factories/
Damages coming at ya quick with my dragon feet/
Lazerbeak on the beat, "That guy's a freak!"/
We never come weak, unlike generic dudes/
Dunn on the video, Kid Fresh will sing to you/

CHORUS
I don't know about yall
but I'm about to post up at the Oak Hill Mall
My cousin told me bout a scuffle going on
I wish I had a view from the school rooftop
Living like the king of River, City, River City
packing brass knuckles this is River City, River City
Getting gritty, getting gritty

Phillip Morris

I stepped out the sauna, smoking marijuana
that's when i saw the n*****s Benny and Clyde
throat grabs and choke slams, I'm known to throw jabs
resin on his fingertips I'm better known as "stoned hands"

(oh snap) another stranger to fight wow
he's quite loud til' i pulled this chain and he piped down
I whipped that ass, no mistaking it's lights out
i live in River City, got my training in Chi-town

Alex, I've got a rare crisis (what?)
a hairline fracture but also an appointment with my f*cking hairstylist (damn)
Ryan keeps affairs private but I'll fight you in
public if I am eating lunch and you decide to interrupt him

Murdering hoardes of fraternity guys
leave em yearning for their mama like maternity wards
that's the type of drama that you don't prefer to be yours
blunt head trauma that you'll need some surgery for

CHORUS
I don't know about yall
but I'm about to post up at the Oak Hill Mall
My cousin told me bout a scuffle going on
I wish I had a view from the school rooftop
Living like the king of River, City, River City
packing brass knuckles this is River City, River City
Getting gritty, getting gritty
