    Cigarettes – Fort Minor

    [Intro] Yeah, go ahead and, uh, cue the special effects [Verse 1] Man, I love this rap game, mainly ’cause it’s cool To add a little spice to the life you’ve been through Everyone exaggerates a tiny little bit Make that shit sound more gangsta than it really is You can’t appear weak, man, we wanna hear street We wanna hear you spit your thug over this here beat Don’t take it as sarcastic, I can’t get enough I’m telling you, you can call my bluff, if it’s not rough Then, I really don’t need it, I’m not even ashamed I got too much reality that’s filling up my brain…
