Lyrics Rick Ross

Everyday I'm hustlin' [x7]
Everyday I'm, everyday I'm, everyday I'm hustlin'

[Verse 1]
Who the f*ck you think you f*ckin' with? I'm the f*ckin' boss
745, white-on-white, that's f*ckin' Ross
I cut 'em wide, I cut 'em long, I cut 'em fat (what)
I keep 'em coming back (what), we keep 'em coming back
I'm into distribution, I'm like Atlantic
I got them motherf*ckers flying across the Atlantic
I know Pablo, Noriega - the real Noriega
He owe me a hundred favors
I ain't petty n*gga, we buy the whole thang
See most of my n*ggas really still deal cocaine
My roof back, my money rides
I'm on the pedal, show you what I'm running like
When they snatched black, I cried for a hundred nights
He got a hundred bodies, serving a hundred lives


[Verse 2]
We never steal cars, but we deal hard
Whip it real hard - whip it, whip it - real hard
I caught a charge, I caught a charge
Whip it real hard - whip it, whip it - real hard
Ain't bout no funny sh*t, still b*tches and business
I'm on my money, sh*t, still whipping them Benz
Major league, who catching? Because I'm pitching
Jose Canseco just snitching because he's finished
I feed 'em steroids to strengthen up all my chickens
They flying over Pacific to be specific
Triple C's, you know it's back, we holding sacks
So n*gga go on, rat, run and tell 'em that
More cars, more hos, more clothes, more blows


[Verse 3]
It's time to spend my thrills, custom spinning wheels
I ain't drove in a week, them b*tches spinning still
Talk about me because these suckers scared to talk about me
Killers talking bout me, it ain't no talk about me
It ain't no walking 'round me, see all these killers 'round me
Lot of drug dealing 'round me going down in Dade County
Don't tote no 22s, Magnum cost me 22
Sat it on them 22s, birds go for 22
Lil' mama super thick, she say she 22
She seen them 22s, we in room 222
I touch work like I'm convertible Burt
I got distribution so I'm converting the work
In the M-I-A-YO, them n*ggas rich off that yayo
Steady slanging yayo, my Chevy banging yayo


Song facts

"Hustlin'" is the first single off Miami rapper Rick Ross's debut album Port of Miami. The official remix of this song features Jay-Z and Young Jeezy, which is also on the album.

In the lyrics of the song, Rick Ross refers to the cocaine traffic network the real Rick Ross had built up, stating: "I'm into distribution, I'm like Atlantic/I got them motherfuckers flyin' across the Atlantic". The song also contains references to Manuel Noriega, former Panamanian Militant General, Pablo Escobar, Colombian narcotics trafficker and Kenneth "Boobie" Williams, Miami-area drug runner. To emphasize that he is talking about Noriega the dictator and not Noreaga, the Queens-based rapper, Ross adds "the real Noriega", who he claims owes him "a hundred favors."
