First of all I just wanna say that, being a heavy metal-hard rock fan, it's
hillaroius that I'm tabbing this out, but you gotta admit, it's kinda
funky.  And, the video just kicks ass.  Don't ask me what the words are, if
anyone wants to take this down and slap the words into it & re-post it, be
my guest.  In fact, please do!  I'm not a rap fan, & I can't understand
what the hell they're saying half the time anyway.  What's a "baller" or a
"shot-caller" or a "jimmy cap"?  I guess i'm na?ve, but, If anyone knows,
e-mail me.  Thanx.  My rythm and spacing isn't too great, but if you know
the song, you should know the rythm.  I'm just givin' ya the real basics,
but with a song like this, that's all you need.  Was Rob Zombie in the
studio with Puffy or did he just rip that off too?  If anybody can tell me
anything e-mail:  supernaut13@yahoo.com Also,does anybody know who the hell
Perfect, the Lox, Size14, & FuzzBubble are?  Are they rap or metal or what?

*Note: There's (of course...) lots of distortion, and some kind
of cool delay effects goin' on here throughout the song.  Also,
the tuning here is standard, on the "Rock Remix II" they use
dropped D tuning (I think), and it's *almost* the same thing.
Play around with it.
