Nature Of The The Business

Coolio

Verse 1:
*singing* itís the roll of the dice
That you canít afford to lose
Itís the nature of the business
Itís the smugglers who lose
*rapping* I got a little proposition, homey, check it out, we gonna put it down
Cause you and I go way back, and I know you done been around
These peeps that I know done put me up on some shit
Nigga, we could all come up loc, we could all make grips
Now I ainít talkin bout no bullshit ass flippin zís
Iím talkin trump type access, they comin off a gang of keys
Now what exscuse you got to play?
You got a wife and baby on the way?
Well, that makes it mo better
We gon work this shit together
We gonna stack enough loochie to get your girls gift from gucci
And send your baby to college and ainít no gettin caught
Cause we gon use the type of knowledge that they never tripped off of befo
They ainít even ready for this hellified shit we got in sto (thatís right)
And I done used the g to hook up that manpower
Shit have the okay to folks taught pillsbury how to push flour
Now all we gotta do is make sure this shit go through, partna (right)
Now call your crew, cause we got work to do
*talking* itís a fifty-fifty chance that you can get stuck
And then snake eyes are crafted, and we shit outta luck
*singing* itís the roll of the dice
That you canít afford to lose
*talking* but if we make this shit work the whole crew gon come up
With thousands in the seikoís, daneís, and fat pocketbooks.
*singing* itís the nature of the business
Itís the smugglers who lose

Verse 2:
*rapping* next level in the game, homey, itís time to get this shit movin
We went up fifty keys on ? speck? and now we got some shit to prove it (right)
We got the contacts in vegas thatís where we go got our troops
Theyíll be the ones in the casino lines dressed in blue suits
And afta shorty, vic, and spider done picked up the shit
They gon lay low a few days to make the trip look legit (thatís right)
But, just in case them niggaz get any fucked up ideas
We gon send wino and big homie to watch our back with the gear (right)
And then them niggaz gonna take the midnight train to dallas (dallas)
We got to hook up them baggage plans to ras kass, misses alice
The cool thing about her is that if she get caught
Itís still all in the family so she ainít gonna sell a nigga out
*talking*
Aight, then, maybe they should get a u-haul pack that shit in a matress
*rapping*
Nah, they best go greyhound, itís still the same as motherfuckin taxes
And all we gotta do is hold our breath about three more days
And cross our fingers, and hope nobody get popped along the way
*talking* you can make this quick lick and be set up for life
But if your ass get stuck, I hope it ainít your third strike
*singing* itís the roll of the dice
That you canít afford to lose
*talking* and them things you last expect, sometimes out there waitin
But I hope you understand if you caught then you ainít got shit to say
*singing* itís the nature of the business
Itís the smugglers who lose
Itís the roll of the dice
That you canít afford to lose
Itís the nature of the business
Itís the smugglers who lose

Verse 3:
*talking* everything is goin according to plan
This shit is on itís way to the man, to the man
Sit next to the goddamned man (right)
But thereís one thing you should know
Thereís some bustas on the bus talkin loud and drinkin and actin the fool,
That shit ainít cool (say what? )
Now, I donít want to have to switch this loc
So, send some bodies to the next stop to get this under control
(they on they way)
But be aware that they all wearin navy uniforms
And they got medals and patches and shit, they think that say desert storm
And they got "gung ho" written all over they chest
So tell lek ratt, d-dog, p.s. to wear they vest
Itís gettin kinda cold out here so iíma have to be gone
*sirens and helicopters*
Wait, here that? oh, I think somethin wrong *gunshots*
Whatís up? baby, whatís goin on, man? what! what the fuck happenin?
Aw, shit, my nigga, iíma have to face shit
I think somebody set us up, thereís feds all over the place
*rapping* thatís the name of the game, thatís the way the game go
Sometimes you rise high, and sometimes you sink low
*singing* itís the roll of the dice
That you canít afford to lose
*rapping* if you make it back to the hood then Iíll see you around
But if they got somebody watchin, then stay your ass outta town
*singing* itís the nature of the business
Itís the smugglers who lose
Itís the roll of the dice
That you canít afford to lose
Itís the nature of the business
Itís the smugglers who lose
Itís the roll of the dice
That you canít afford to lose
