[Chorus: ("Puff Daddy")]
What's beef?
Beef is when you need two Gats to go to sleep!
Beef is when your moms ain't safe up in the streets!
Beef is when I see you
Guaranteed to be an ICU!
One more time! - What's beef?
Beef is when you make your enemies start your Jeep!
Beef is when you roll no less than thirty deep!
Beef is when I see you!
Guaranteed to be an ICU! - Check it! ("yeeeah! ")

There'll be nothin' but smooooth sailin' ("sailin'! ")
When I spit shots, now your creeeew's bailin'! ("bailin'! ")
All I got is heat and tough talk for you! ("uh-huh! ")
Tie you up, cut your balls off just to use! ("oooh! ")
Man listen straight torture! - Look what that slick shit bought ya
A first class ticket to Lucife, real name Cristopher!
Watch me set it off like Vivica
Here lies your demise! - Close your eyes! ("uh-huh! ")
Think good thoughts! - Die while your skin start to glisten,
Pale blue hands get cold, your soul's risen!
It's bad cause I just begun!
We'll make the shit real bad, now we's havin' fun! (Hahahaha!) ("ehehehe! ")
