Well it's a different thing being a fellow from Vegas
Where thousands of girls sell it from the yellow pages
Some on the corner, some are making porn wages
It's a different kind of thing being born in Vegas.
Thought it's a beautiful town, it can kick your when you're down
You might think I'm kidding around but you can drown upon dry ground
Though you could also hit it big if you know when to quit
Listen up kids that shits for your benefit


Don't mess with Vegas
It's such a sin
You need to face it
The house always wins

And it's a different thing living off Rainbow and Trop,
At times trailblazin' from Spring Valley to the top
Can't remember how much money that I dropped into them slots
It's a crazy situation livin' off Rainbow and Trop
Though I loved my neighborhood can't you hear it in my tone
I did everything I could just to own my little zone
I even tried slanging but that game wasn't for me
So now I'm just singing about my home city


And it's a different thing working behind the scene
Some stars are hella cool some bitches are mean
At the top are the McGraws the bottom Miss Strisiend
I made out like a fiend working behind the scene
For twenty bucks an hour I would hurry up and wait
and then I'd use my power to do the work of eight
Ok, so that's a stretch but I could do the work of two
And I know when I should fetch another member of my crew

Good rap
Enjoy the rapping. Good Lyrics. Not a huge fan of the chorus. Also agree that the backing track is a little thin like the previous comment. Good stuff!

Where's the rating?
Good start here man, putting it all out there. This has great potential,
with the right production, it could be a hit!

Keep it up man, this is good.

Waiting for the jackpot
Again, great writing, and really nice singing. The spoken part doesn't
have the same edge. The drum track gets kind of annoying by the end, in
my ears, and maybe that's becuz I don't listen to this genre that often.
But this is a song full of wit and great imagery, and if your production
could capture the Las Vegas feel, it could bring out all the clever writing
you've done.
