We Dem Boyz
He’s the ‘big man’ and he and his boys are ready to party. They’re drinking from a bottle, smoking some marijuana and the girls all want to follow him. All girls want him – foreign girls, white girls, girls with big asses. He’ll take them all on “But first I gotta roll this joint, baby hol’ up”. He’s better than his rivals, who are broke and lazy.
