J-88 - The Look Of Love Pt. 2 (Best Kept Secret, 2000)
It’s like girl, I mean goodness gracious. Thinkin’ bout taking you back to my place and.. Thinkin’ bout doin some things, like relations Where we just do it, do it, and keep doin’ it…
So lady, what’s up? Just tell me if you’re cool with this. I could do things you never dreamed with your clitoris. Lights, camera, action. Handle my business. Don’t try to front. And what love got to do with this?
Can’t two adults have a mutual agreement? Can’t a couple not be in love and be intimate? I told you before, that I ain’t no gentlemen. Don’t care what you say girl, I just ain’t settlin’.
“It’s hard to make music when this depression exists / they say use it as inspiration & the best of ‘em did / well that’s them, see that I can’t handle this pressure for shit / and if you ask me stress is a bitch…”—
“I can’t even compete with these ballers trying to get at you / Cause I ain’t even got enough cheese to try to match dude / Nor do I got a flat to bring you back to / But I can roll up a blunt and try to relax you / Probably make you laugh when you mad in a bad mood.”—

See me and baby got this situation See brother got this comlex ocupation And it ain’t that he don’t have education Cause I was right there at his graduation Now I ain’t sayin that this life don’t work But it’s me and baby that he hurts Because I tell him right he thinks I’m wrong But I love him strong
Blu & Exile - O Heaven (Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them, 2011)
And through it all I try not to do you wrong As I have in the past, rapping other love songs But its kinda hard building lust when your trust gone Money was the object of affection, they ain’t want John
