Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – Crime Pays Lyrics

Crime Pays by Freddie Gibbs & Madlib


Yeah, yeah, crime pays
Crime pays, yeah, yeah
Yeah
Crime pays, n----, crime pays
Choppin’ up the change wit’ cocaine in my microwave
Made it through my home wit’ my lights out I seen brighter day
Watch this s--- get me high, boy, you live and you die by this game
Homeboy just caught HIV, he lived and he died by his hoe
Have we ever hit the same b---- before? Ain’t nobody know
Have we ever hit the same b---- before? Wasn’t nobody business
N----- be f------ these hoes and say, “F--- insurances and doctor visits”

Fly like the wind, it’s time to begin your life
(Say, “F--- insurance and doctor visits”)
You got control to stop again and do it right
Look to the sky and you will feel how to live a life that’s real
To the perfect harmony, when the spirit is free
(Yeah, yeah)

Crime pays, n----, crime pays
Choppin’ up this change wit’ cocaine in my microwave
Diamonds in my chain, yeah, I slang but I’m still a slave
Twist it in the system, just a number listed on a page
Made it through my home wit’ my lights out I seen brighter day
Watch this s--- get me high, boy, you live and you die by this game
B---- don’t touch my body, ’cause I put your body all off in a bodyslam
You ain’t gon’ hurt nobody, [?] but we the body gang
The hoe that you brought out to Cali
But she only f-----’ wit’ you ’cause you f-----’ wit’ Kane
Thought she was boostin’ her credit wit’ n----- like you that just ain’t got enough on their name
Thought I would front you when other one n----- like you that just ain’t got enough on the books
Talkin’ that s--- in the booth but when n----- come shoot at you, you couldn’t do nothin’ but look
My n----- gon’ bust a four nickel on your n----
Bustin’ that he on the s--- bad
His homie done bubble the condom, he got her shot up
Now I know that his b---- mad
He steadily called up my phone and you huffin’ and puffin’
‘Cause they at your b----, duckin’
And Rocky done went and bought Jeezy a pair of new shoes
That n---- was d--- s-----’

Fly like the wind, it’s time to begin your life
(That n---- was d--- s-----’)
You got control to stop again and do it right
Look to the sky and you will feel how to live a life that’s real
To the perfect harmony, when the spirit is free

Crime pays, n----, crime pays
Yeah, crime pays, n----, crime pays
Crime pays, n----, crime pays
