Say these niggas ain't ridin' on low, oh
Push Benz through the bitch
And a nigga gotta go
DROGAS
I need a trophy for this shit, dawg
I need a trophy for this shit

City of the year, city of the year
That's where I'm from
City of the year, city of the year
They don't want none
City of the year, city of the year
Them hoes can't come
Go hard to go home
I'm turnt up in the 'Go zone
City of the year

Ayy, born in the middle of the West
Lil' nigga, living in the middle of death
Raised 'round killers, that's why little impress
Outside white folks, it must sound I'm a little oppressed
And I'm sorry, my niggas, but I think you the best
You don't need no Khaled, 'cause that's on me, valid
Let me push my brother, we don't need no malice
Niggas raised in the projects, now they gon' need a palace

Niggas want JJ's, don't eat salads
Fourteen with a AK, and he'll let a nigga have it
Fireworks in Capetown, man it's so tragic
Fireworks on the lake front, shit look like Magic

City of the year, city of the year
That's where I'm from
City of the year, city of the year
They don't want none
City of the year, city of the year
Them hoes can't come
Go hard to go home
I'm turnt up in the 'Go zone

My city look pretty in the summer
6th grade, moved out to the hundreds
Prolly wouldn't have made it hangin' 'round my mama's
Havin' worldwide, made my come-up
Bishop was a BD, dope claimed lord
Cliqued all up, put it all on CD
Neutron don, but I prolly been a GD
God knows best, so he put me where he need me
Puttin' truth in all these rhymes
State tried to shut a nigga down
Gave my nigga Chilly all that time
People think it came out of nowhere
It's all by design
They took away the chiefs
And the streets lost their minds

City of the year, city of the year
That's where I'm from
City of the year, city of the year
They don't want none
City of the year, city of the year
Them hoes can't come
Go hard to go home
I'm turnt up in the 'Go zone
City of the year

[Rondo:]
Turn up, let's get it
Turn up, life in Windy City
Chiraq
Lupe, what up, bro?
In the 'Go zone, in the 'Go zone

Go hard or go home, we turnt up
I'm from Chiraq, when we come around we rust stuff
I gotta keep that 'cause when I come around they act tough
Chi Lupe, I'm so hard, I'm burnt up
City of the year that's my shit, I'm ridin' 'round in traffic
See there he got the mop stick
Ain't shit change, I ain't quit
Ain't shit change, I ain't switch
I'm just smart, tryna get rich
I'm so high, you in a ditch
I'ma get mine, Money Makin' Mitch
You talkin' shit, you don't exist
I can leave you lost in the mist
I'm Rondo, real as it gets
Either with me or you against

[Lupe Fiasco:]
City of the year, city of the year
That's where I'm from
City of the year, city of the year
They don't want none
City of the year, city of the year
Them hoes can't come
Go hard to go home
I'm turnt up in the 'Go zone
City of the year
