[Intro 1: Taken from Freaky]
I really don't have to tell you much about this one because the song is
like the song is like self-explanatory. You know what I mean? It's
called My Own Hell. Story about me, and Midwestside, and Hogstyle
Records, and people around me, and my wife, and stuff like that. Pretty
personal. Real ruff copy. It's the only one we got. You know what I
mean? I think y'all really love the story. People are nosey and want to
know about my life so check this out; this is called My Own Hell
Produced by Don Juan

[Intro 2]
N_gga, my life is straight conflict
When all I want to do is kick it hard and make bomb sh_t
Every perimeter I enter is infested with a sinner
Seems like I'm losing and never coming out the winner
Sh_t, I'm the only one kicking it, everyone else plotting and scheming
But yet they never listen when I say I'm a little piece of love and a
pit full of demons

[Verse 1]
Midwestside was record company comprised of all friends
who grew up together and shared ends
Nobody stepped on nobody's toes
Don Juan was executive producer, Juan had beats I had flows
Scoob and Txx Will did promotion
Got it where Mitch Bade was the sh_t and got Kansas City open
Juan got that sh_t to Quincy Jones through a chick named Mona
Three days later Q called us back and it was on
Q told us to wait on putting the record out indy
The record company will make it to where we'll have plenty
So we waited. Should we put this out? We debated
But working with Quincy we were elated
So now we on the road to L.A. and it was live
till we got to Quincy's and Don Juan to Scooby and them to wait outside
That's when the tension started to build
N_ggaz started feeling unappreciated and then sh_t got real!
'97 Quincy called back for me and Juan
I told my Rogue Dog n_ggaz just to remain calm
I'm bout to make it so we can bling. Get us nice things
and then Don Juan said, "let's mash for our dreams."
Scooby didn't like the way he spent his money on promos
T-shirts and money to make room for logos
He thought he wasn't appreciated, Midwestside depreciated
Gone for the summer and everybody waited
Bakarii didn't like the fact he was down with Mitch Bade
He felt that he should be the next n_gga to get paid
Txx Will got tired of being lectured
on distribution so the anted up and started Hogstyle Records
My n_ggaz wanted me to ride
Hell yeah I'm down, Tecca Nina's on both sides
Hogstyle's like "F_ck 'em, cuz they didn't believe in 57
Midwestside's the same, but the love, I'm trynna find my way to heaven

Yo... This is my own hell, n_gga this is my own hell
Just trynna make my records sell
Off in my own hell, n_gga this is my own hell

[Verse 2]
We want to Cali to hook with QD3
They wanted the superstar to be me
Kicked it with big Q off in the wild wild west they signed me to Quest
Didn't know I was in for some more perspective mess
Quest fighting Midwestside over a single
All the way from the love angel to Chris Cringle
CEO of Midwestside fighting QD over my budget
QD fighting quest cuz he never loved it
Warner Bros. Fighting back and forth with my artists
cuz the b_tch who's handling money is retarded
Quest don't like Midwestside, QD3 don't like Quest
and I'm sitting in the middle depressed
Warner Bros send me four Gs a month
I'm kickin it at parties. Liquor, weed, and cunts
When everybody's fussing and fighting
I'm suffering peacefully like novacaine
That's because I didn't know the game
Midwestside, Juan, and QD3
Q-W-E-S-T fighting over me
Sway and Tech fighting Q over a check he didn't pay
but I suffer. Yeah, I suffer at the end of the day

Yo... This is my own hell, n_gga this is my own hell
Just trynna make my records sell
Off in my own hell, n_gga this is my own hell

[Verse 3]
My female friends started not to like my woman
when they found my marriage was comin
My wife didn't like my friends from the get go
She say them b_tches ain't nothing but f_cking famous rapper n_ggaz for
the grip hoes
Wifey don't like me hanging out with E and Beans
Cuz when we be seeing E and Beans wifey be seeing things
Beans don't like Sheryl cuz Sheryl fine a hell
and Beans things Sheryl will take the d_ck to show and tell
Sheryl don't like Beans cuz Beans rude
She wish Beans would go back to Chicago with her dude
Sayin he don't like Dr. Wick
but Dr. Wick don't give a sh_t
Zany got Nicky waiting for the hit
Wifey study entire cuz something look fishy
Cuz all my relations iffy iffy
Wifey thinks Big [?] would try to f_ck
Big [?] knew if he try wifey was down to buck
Now all these n_ggaz in my rhyme are my people
No one can save them not even a steeple could make the equal
You're all my sisters, my brothers
But I'm tired of mediating. I'mma sit back and watch y'all kill each
motherf_cking other

Yo... This is my own hell, n_gga this is my own hell
Just trynna make my records sell
Off in my own hell, n_gga this is my own hell
This is my own hell, n_gga this is my own hell
Just trynna make my records sell
