"That's How..." lyrics - D12

"That's How..."
(Jeff Bass / R. Arthur Johnson / Marshall Mathers / Curtis Mayfield / Denaun Porter)

(*scratched*: "Niggas, crackers, whities, jews..")
This is how it happens to you
That's how people get fucked up!
(*scratched*: "Niggas, crackers, whities, jews..")

This is how it happens to you
That's how people get fucked up!

Yo, if you a loudmouth, trying to wild out
And we see just how you laying and we peeped yo' style out
(You a punk!) When you chilling out in front of your truck and get stuck
That's how niggas get fucked up!
No love at home with your kinfolk
And the world just keep fucking with your mental
And all these kids making fun of your trench coat
That's how students get shot up!
[Kon Artis]
Hating on us but you come to our show
(Fuck them niggas) I crowd surf and you let me go
(Oh no!) Whup yo' ass when I get off the flo', just so you know tough
That's how haters get fucked up!
When the police pull you over and shit
Then find ganja, now every month they checking on yo' piss
They getting mad cuz you ain't come back since, and now they sweating you
That's how P.O.'s get fucked up!

When your mans hook you up with a bitch
Over the phone and when you see her she ugly as shit (god damn!)
Now at the end of date she want a kiss, AND some dick
That's how blind dates get fucked up!
Saying we not a real crew with a lot of skill
And only one nigga in our crew make the dollar bills
Y'all fools just mad 'cause y'all ain't got a deal
Local rappers talk too much!
[Kon Artis]
(We gon' rob this bank) but you roll with punks
Manager tripped the alarm and you all get stuck
Cops got AK's, y'all only got pumps - that shit's just dumb
That's how Cousey got locked up!
When yo' ass wanna walk in a club
Instead of telling you to wait, the nigga wanna push and shove
(Move!) Then get trampled from the niggas you brung, so move over
That's how bouncers get fucked up!


When you get your guns out of the stash
And gather all your homies up to go and shoot up a pad
Soon as you finish y'all run out of gas - you better haul ass
That's how drivebys get fucked up!
Mixing weed with the brew, ecstasy and Kahlua
Gasoline fumes, nitrous balloons
Acid tab-lets and the magic mushrooms
That's how D12 get fucked up!
[Kon Artis]
(Hey I like your records) but my album ain't dropped
(Dr. Dre's my favorite) bitch get off his jock
Got a backstage pass and I need to get off; wanna meet da-da-d-Doc
That's how groupies get tossed up!
Drop out of school, take drugs and molest sluts
Got your girlfriend sucking on my left nut
Your parents don't like me, but guess what?
'Cause Bizarre don't give a fuck!

Chokin your wife all in front of your peeps (bitch!)
She toss a brick through the window of your Jeep
Get back together by the end of the week, that's so sweet!
Slim and Kim argue too much!
Invite a ho to your house while your bitch is out
Now you got your dick all up in her fucking mouth
Pull it out and then you bust off on her favorite blouse
That's how Clinton got caught up!
[Kon Artis]
Steal cars, wreck bars, get fucked up beyond
Recognition walk in titty clubs like we stars
Our mission every day is just to smoke bongs and fuck bitches in thongs
That's how Runyan Ave. is cut!
When your life wasn't raised up right
Then see your mother coming home with different niggas every night
And then you run into the one you don't like; so get the FUCK lost
That's how step-dads get fucked up!

[Hook 2x]
