[Omar Cruz]
It's ya boy
O. Cruz
This goin' out to all those muh'fuckers that down with me from day one, man
We're here now
Let's ride out

[Verse 1: Omar Cruz]
It was all a dream
My fantasy, for a young Latin kid
Actin' like I was rappin' in front of thousands, I laugh at it now
But back then, the struggle really had a grip on me
And all my family could really do was wish the best of me (Whoo!)
We had it hard, growin' up in the barrio
When muh'fuckers would ride out and bury you with the saw
When they sense street light, I wrote my first song
Every single night in bed, I'm hearin' shots go off {*two gunshots*}
But through the pain and sorrow, and all the cloudy days
I would find a way to make sunrays brighten up my day
Ignorin' all the bassheads and the one time
That's out to make us pure California sunshine
Even the homies that know me, they know I said it, "Solely
Only for all my soldados," mamis is showin' they chonies (Ha ha)
Cause now we made it, we struggled to make it right
We hustle just to survive, we celebratin' this life (Come on)

[Frankie J.]     Can't stop
                 Ain't no stoppin' us
                 Won't stop
                 Ain't no toppin' this
                 Candy drop
                 Six-four's hop to this
[Omar Cruz]      Where we takin' this, man?
[Julian Bunneta] "To the top"
[Frankie J.]     Can't stop
                 Ain't no stoppin' us
                 Won't stop
                 Worked too hard for this
                 Shit to pop
                 Ain't no stoppin' us
[Julian Bunneta] "To the top"

(Verse 2)
[Omar Cruz] So now, we mobbin' to the liquor store, for supply
            Same spot, where the homie took his last breath of la di
            So many funerals and rosaries, lonely nights
            That's why the night, we smoke on somethin', toastin' (???) life
            So many rollin' with us, always ridin' so deep
            Range Rove, chrome feet, six-four, gold D's
            The homies hold heat daily on the boulevard
            There's hood insurance so we don't catch any bullet scars
            So little mama, get your pretty ass in the back
            Call ya homegirls, tell 'em, "We gon' be there in a half"
            Top down, you know my shit got the best sound
            The convoy in candy paint, headed west bound
            Smoke in the air, got the Cali weed, everywhere
            Blowin' in the wind, throwin' dubs up, we don't stop
            Pull at a stop
            Little mama, wanna roll, let's go
[Female]    Where we going?
[Omar Cruz] Westward, hoe (Come on)

Repeat Chorus

[Verse 3: Omar Cruz]
We hit the coast, dip in three wheel motion
The sun is gettin' close to the ocean, sippin' the potion
We posted, homie, I'm feelin' right
For all the hard times
Everybody feelin' right
We had to get it tight
So now, we pourin' tequila, some drinking grey goose
Homies poundin' 12-packs, others sippin' gin and juice
Light up the don fire, player lit a O. Cruz
Pour a little liquor for the homies cause we miss you

Repeat Chorus Twice
