it is what it is lyrics – e-40

it is what it is
it is what it is

you try compromisin’, nope, they don’t wanna talk
and they got them nuts that’s off that acapulco powdered chalk
so he untouchable, oh he can be touched
well, where he stay at then, he stay by such and such

well, since we got altercations with these so called knuckleheads
we gon’ play for dooms and i *ssume
we get radar on fool in dem livin’ rooms
bet, motherf*cker ain’t fin’ ta be runnin’ around here drippin’ sweat

havin’ hot flashes and sh*t
over these fulla b*tch-made and a half-*ss d*cks
you ripped? let’s take it to ’em sick
hit all they spots at once, pour it on ’em thick

who got the suey chops? they in my folks garage
well where he at? he at the travel lodge, beep that n*gg*
tell him to get here right now quick now it’s gon’ be some sh*t
tell him to bring enough ammunition to blow up a ship

bullsh*t ain’t nothin’ this here been goin’ on just a little bit too long
plus i got a family and kids to raise and i plan on seein’ ’em get grown
get straight to the root of the problem
get rid of the source that’s what what, get rid of the big cheese

and the majority of these n*gg*z gon’ back the f*ck up
somebody gon’ mind somethin’, time to validate my respection
hit the corner dumpin’, in the big-*ss [unverified] station wagon
catch them b*tch-*ss, that’s what i told my driver man

while i was tryin’ to get him to get in a position so that i could open fire
f*ck a ski mask, unpolished fish grease
let the fully blast
may he rest in p*ss miss smash up outta there

i brought them boys, but i shoulda brought it like a concert
fool’s still alive, john murell [unverified] trauma center, concord
shoulda doused him, shouldn’ta never found him
shoulda handled biz, but for now, it is what it is

it is what it is
it is what it is
it is what it is

aight, ay dude, this all i wanna know
what’s wrong with this sad to be glad-*ss n*gg*s?
don’t they know that fools is laced with *ss*ssin skills?
kill at will, gonna put your hat on the rack for a cool mill?

(aww, it’s gon’ get done)
but now the heat has been spared
how we gon’ get him out of intensive care
and put him under the wing of a pall-bear?

one of my potnahs got a plug on some silencers, he knows some agents
he used dem [unverified] [unverified] shot on several different occasions
what that mean his family gon’ boo-hoo when i smash that card
better stay on a n*gg* brain give a f*ck about a die-hard

i know this one botch with a big-*ss crotch by the name of connie
she works in icu and she dates this n*gg* named mitchski ronnie
have nab him at the hospital, that’ll work
paid a nurse to pull the plug on the life support

risky business but it’s organized cl*ss and the sh*t sound sharp
but if we f*ck around and make it look too obvious
the broad might her lose her job
tough luck that sh*t no better than f*ckin’ for me now

i gots no toilet paper feelings for her anyhow
the sh*t is crampin’ my livin’ style, floatin’ from telly to telly
conspiracy murder plots phone conversations overheard by federal
i’m guessin’ fool musta p*ssed away, tragic losses

on the wall they got my picture at the post office
after travellin’ bouncin’ back and forth to different states
they finally caught me up in kansas city
at a barbecue spot called gates

do the crime do the time, it ain’t for no b*tch
and as long as a n*gg* twerkin’ in the kitchen, he ain’t trippin’
i’ll be up in that b*tch makin’ spreads, drinkin’ pruno
cocoa and coffee cadillacs, jumpin’ jacks

takin’ flicks, shootin’ kites, makin’ wishes
f*ck around and get mad on the strength of conjugal visits
flip the weight pile, hit my fee-vee [unverified]
keep my shank close by me when i’m sleepy

shouldn’ta caught me, shouldn’ta never found me
shoulda handled biz, but it’s too late, it is what it is

it is what it is
it is what it is
it is what it is

oh, ohh i see
it is what it was, and what it was is just what’s been taught
handle biz when it’s to be done, and i mean rip you dig?
’cause ain’t no sense in savin’ leftovers
that’s yesterday’s thing, roll with the right now
and everything gon’ be is, what it is
