It's the rules of engagement nigga,
What ya'll know about that shit?
Niggas I been in this game for years,
Makin' me the animal that I is.
There's rules to this shit.
Remember these crack commandments,
That is what I call The Rules of Engagement.
You should master this,
Take notes you bastards;
Never outshine the master,
If you oppose a threat he gon' kill you faster.
Conceal your intentions always,
Nowadays niggas either snitchin and catch phrase.
Always say less than necessary,
Them niggas that talk too much often get buried.
I know you heard this before,
Push your enemy totally, Hail Mary's and rosaries.
Pose as a friend, work as a spy,
Take 'em to get high, Then put it between his eyes.
Stir up water to catch fish,
This here is my favourite, ain't no need in explainin' it.
Keep others suspended in terror,
Be unpredictable, in other words gain the advantage.
Play a sucka to catch a sucka,
Seem dubmer than your mark muther-fucker so you can touch him.
Know who you dealin' with,
Don't offend no wrong niggas, get your family killed.
And Rule 10 shoulda been number 1 to me,
Play all the way to the end without gettin' your hands dirty.
It's the rules... of Engagement niggas
