Being in jail I learned a lot. So when I do get on the block, I'll be smarter, wiser, do it my way.
He wasn't named until he came out of the hospital.
But ain't nobody called him Bryan because everybody knowed him as Baby.
Just call me Money, Dom P., Cristal. Number one stunner . CMR for life.
He said, Old Mr. Johnny shot me.
My mom died when Baby was five, turning six.
As a kid, I saw it all. Everything went down on the block.
They knew we was playing that kind of money at this type of age.
Everybody and they mom had some type of product from him.
Growing up in these streets, watching a lot of my partners die, or go to penitentiary...
That's what I think turned his life on.
...made me want to do something different in life. So I chose music and started Cash Money Records.

(Lyrics) Everybody get yo roll on
Everybody get yo roll on
