The Prospectus EP

The Three

I’m a captain of industry
you can call me Steve Jobs
catch me chillin by the water cooler
meeting with the bobs
running a ponzi scheme
in my office pool
then chillin back at the estate
of 20 acres and a pool
failing outta business school
but not giving a worry
cuz when we drop IPO
our wealth increase in a hurry
I see your eyes getting blurry
when you spot my portfolio
i’m like a multitasking baker
making all kinds a dough
it’s like im pinochio
but what’s enlarged aint my nose
i keep my money well invested
to ensure that it grows
running schemes with my bros
running trains on the hoes
a money making machine
from my head to my toes
he drops the beats I drop flows
we got the skills and it shows
we the Wall $treet Playaz
not your average Joes
[Chorus]
Cause we’re the Three (what)
We’re the Dub S P
We’re the Three
And you can’t stop me
I’m the man behind the method
with a mic in my hand
a gun against my head
yet forever i stand
can’t reclaim the money
steady into the sand
but the playaz keep it flowin
making grand after grand
i’m in a land of riches
while you tighten your britches
The Wall $treet Playaz
make your CEO’s bitches
and we know where the glitch is
bugged out of control
tearing out all of the stitches
short-selling your soul
I’m running on logic
so obsessed with the green flow
you could call it the chronic
but mine on the trees grow
and not hydroponic
are you catchin the mean bro
we’re using the sonic
to produce all the phat dough
and you’re seein how that goes
this system that i chose
keep collecting duckets
just to see how the stack grows
(Chorus)
Cause we’re the Three (what)
We’re the Dub S P
We’re the Three
And you can’t stop me
I’m on the cover of Forbes,
but I wear a disguise
I got a Bill Gates mask on
so all you see is my eyes
I can’t tell you no lies
We got cash to the sky
You can see that pile from space,
cause it’s 10 miles high
We ain’t envious guys
but we still seein’ green
I got so much money
You can call it obscene
We countin’ bean after bean
If you know what I mean
I’ve got hundreds in my vest
all you got is your spleen
My name ain’t Scrooge McDuck,
I don’t swim in my money
I got a pool full of champagne,
green tea, and honey
It gets you drunk, gets you slick,
and cures your sore throat
You can’t stop me motherfucker
’cause I’m sailin’ on a boat
I don’t brag, boast, or gloat
We hittin’ all the right notes
We the Wall $treet Playaz
and that’s all that we wrote.

The Bailout

The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout
The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout
The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout
The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout

It started with the banks saying we ain’t got no money
I’m looking at the CEOs sayin this shit ain’t funny

What happened to my savings account and 401k?
What – you think they just got up and then walked away?

Now they’re chillin out in china – drinking tea and eating rice
We got a problem who can solve it? Should we call Vanilla Ice?

Lehman Brothers – what a blunder – you let down the family
There’s a couple million missing – just between you and me

And Meryl Lynch – guess they pulled that trap door out from under ya
you’re all responsible – we can’t blame it all on W

And though I think he’s an idiot – it’s greed that got us here
With sub-prime loans and bitch and moans – the warning signs were very clear

The housing market over inflated and we all knew that it would pop
And now we headed down hill with no brakes so how we stop

(chorus)
The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout
The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout

The bailout, The bailout
We know we got a problem
We dug ourselves hole, yea
But have we hit the bottom.

The bailout, The bailout
Can it keep us all afloat.
If we’re plugging up the dam
Then we better build a boat.

The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout
The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout

Detroit recession city – home of the big 3
They came to DC cuz sales were lacking
As soon as they arrived (yo) they were sent packing

Maybe showing up in private jets was a blunder
But it still gets better gas mileage then your Hummer
And maybe that’s the reason sales ain’t going so well
Cuz we’re givin all our money to Exxon Mobil and to Shell

I see you’re looking for help so we’ll do what we can
Will everybody here please buy American?
(yo) There we did our part and we even said “Please”
The cars are American but the parts are all Chinese
Your stock price is falling and it just took a dive
Without increased sales (yo) how you gonna survive?

(chorus)
The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout
The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout

The bailout, The bailout
Can we really afford?
Is this gonna help
GM, Chrysler and Ford

The bailout, The bailout
My pocket’s full of lint.
Everybody needs a handout
Even Larry Flynt.

The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout
The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout

Now WaMu is Chase and Commerce TD
With all the banks colliding – how’s it gonna be
The current state of the market’s – a disappointment
We staying topical like prescribed ointment

Now Fannie and Freddy they got a divorce
With Geitner at the helm, we heading way off course
From Clinton to Bush we still aint on track
Hope this Obama guy can start to bring it back

Watching the failure through meticulous predictions
all comin to the playaz for some financial prescriptions
As congress falls in line like requisite conscription’s
Laissez Fair isn’t fair as we break from our traditions

(chorus)
The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout
The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout

The bailout, The bailout
Welcome to the new recession
The second worst in history
After the Great Depression.

The bailout, The bailout
Is there an end in sight?
Well the experts all agree
Eventually one day it might.

The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout
The bailout, The bailout – What what – The bailout

The bailout, The bailout – What what -

Where You At? (Wall Street)

Wall Street Playaz son, don’t you forget it
the monies in the bank, we ain’t livin on credit

factory close in china, stocks start to fall
walk in to the office, start a boardroom brawl

if you mess with my money then you mess with me
and if you step to a playa then you step to all 3
and now 4 and growing even more
where ever you at get on the tradin floor

where you at? Wall Street
let me hear you Wall Street
where you at? Wall Street
let me hear you Wall Street
takin profits Wall Street

tradin stocks Wall Street

We ain’t incorporated in Delaware, we from downtown
take the 4 5 train then emerge from underground

We love our job while you bitch and moan
The best street in this world paved in cobblestone

We take down the bear in the land of the bull
Stayin well paid keepin our pockets full

We aint no band of back stabbers / We a band of traders
Reverse splittin, ass kickin / Send ya packin see ya laters

where you at? Wall Street
let me hear you Wall Street
where you at? Wall Street
let me hear you Wall Street
takin profits Wall Street

high yield Wall Street
tradin stocks Wall Street

Rappin’ ’bout finance, they said we couldn’t do it
But look at us now, we in your skull like a bullet

When you hit Chap 11, you know you been sunk
We’ll liquefy your assets and go get crunk

Throw a stack in he air to see dollaz fly
We fed up with the Fed so we don’t comply

It’s Bernanke Bernanke Bernankulous
Makin’ up your own words is ridaculous

So before this song is over / and we almost up to that
One more time investors / yo tell me where you at

where you at? Wall Street
Wall Street
Wall Street
Wall Street
They got that Journal Wall Street
And that bull Wall Street
It’s not exctly on Wall Street
But it’s just south of Wall Street

The Bear

The internet bubble
your stocks in mad trouble
sell tech buy blue chips
do it on the double

After the shareholders meeting
your stock took a mad beating
the board opened its seating
Wall Street Playaz started feeding

Our takeover was hostle
shook it up with a jostle
took your old management
and turned them into a fossil

We brought our own people in
let Whosiewhats reign begin
we took your negative forecast
and turned it into a win

we roll in lincoln town cars
drink in downtown bars
well known from here to mars
stock trading super stars

Whacha gonna do when the bear comes (Diversify, Diversify)
Whacha gonna do when the bear comes (I said Scream!, now Scream Broker Scream!)

after your white collar crime
was a transitional time
your CEO was a mime
but look your new one can rhyme

then a layoff and a cut
the office had to shut
the analysts were like “what?
that Whosiewhats is a nut”

The market keeps changing, you gotta stay loose
How you gonna drive this train if you in the caboose
If my plans don’t pay off, guess you can cook my goose
Some people think I’m a cock, I’m just king of the roost

the doubters and competition said we were wrong
but after a PR blitz public opinion was strong
we still got a lot to do and not very long
to recover from the bear by the end of this song (yea)

we roll in lincoln town cars
drink in downtown bars
well known from here to mars
stock trading super stars

Whacha gonna do when the bear comes (Diversify, Diversify)
Whacha gonna do when the bear comes (I said Scream!, now Scream Broker Scream!)

The market started to shift
Like a tectonic rift
And look who rose to the top
We Wall Street Playaz can’t stop

They planned our expiration
But we beat their expectations
In this capitalist nation
P/E’s the equation

Flipped the sector on its head
Company’s back from the dead
They thought we failed but instead
We roll in black not the red

VC’s said we were insane
’til we posted mad gain
You best remember our name
Wall Street Playaz of fame (yeah)

we roll in lincoln town cars
drink in downtown bars
well known from here to mars
stock trading super stars

Whacha gonna do when the bear comes (Diversify, Diversify)
Whacha gonna do when the bear comes (I said Scream!, now Scream Broker Scream!)

Livin’ The Life

Cuz we’re livin the life of luxury
We the playaz in this game you the scrubs you see
Climbing the corporate ladder to see what I can see
Ain’t lettin your ass get in front of me

You fools act like you don’t know what’s next
Take out the wallet, rock the corporate Amex
Give us an inch and we’ll take a yard
Buy the whole crew lunch on my T&E card

On my lunch break – don’t go very far
Catch me boozin up down at Harry’s bar
Drunk drivin maniac in the company car
Blowin smoke rings out from my Cuban cigar

I’m not in the office, I’m working from home
Got the remote access hookup, so you know I roam
I rock the Blackberry, fuck your Nokia phone
If it ain’t business related, then leave me alone

Cuz we’re livin the life of luxury
We the playaz in this game you the scrubs you see
Climbing the corporate ladder to see what I can see
Ain’t lettin your ass get in front of me

Got a house in the Hamptons I use in the summer
Bently in the driveway next to the Hummer
Only use the house maybe a month a year
But I can afford that shit with all the money I clear

Got a charity scholarship in my name
Think I’m helping the youth? Its a tax break game
Don’t gotta pay Uncle Sam if I give it away
Karma’s a boomerang, it’ll come back some day

This ain’t no shopping spree. It’s everyday for me
Got the keys to the penthouse and to the Bently
The watch’s Rolex, suit’s custom made
Damn it’s good to be a playa. Damn it’s great to be paid.

Cuz we’re livin the life of luxury
We the playaz in this game you the scrubs you see
Climbing the corporate ladder to see what I can see
Ain’t lettin your ass get in front of me

Robin Leech never met a real Playa like me
Modern day pirate, bank accounts overseas
Take a trip to the Caymans, my tax free spot
Cruisin’ around the world in my 100-foot yacht

I take my chopper to work, while you’re transferring trains
It’s an easy commute, except for when it rains
Those days I stay at home and I trade as I please
I got the whole market beggin, down on its knees

I submit my order and press execute
Then I eat some caviar and then count my loot
I buy some more diamonds and give them to my wife
A true Wall Street Playa, livin the life

Cuz we’re livin the life, the life, the life of luxury
Living the life, the life, you see (playa)
Livin the life, the life, the life of luxury
Living the life, the life for me

Cuz we’re livin the life, the life, the life of luxury
Living the life, the life, you see (playa)
Livin the life, the life, the life of luxury
Living the life, the ONLY LIFE FOR ME
