​Lavish

This song is by 415 and appears on the album 41Fivin (1988).

DJ Daryl cuts up:
(The money's still long, just livin' lavish)

(VERSE 1: Richie Rich)
What is the meaning of lavish? Yo, I started with a single
My album's out, so now it's time for me to mingle
Well, 'lavish' to me is like mail, straight up
So all you hungry muthafuckas pick a plate up
'Cause I'm about to feed you some dope shit
And I'ma sit and sit and sit until it's bit
I'm tired of the muthafuckin hype
About the black brothers gotta be a stereotype
You see, lavish is a one-way ticket
And on the back is boldly stamped: 'It's time to kick it'
Me, D-Loc, DJ Daryl and Young Tone
We put some shit together for the microphone
And it's lavish

DJ Daryl cuts up:
(Takes money to survive)

(VERSE 2: Richie Rich)
What is the meaning of lavish? Yo, despite the perpendicular
Rap is my sport and on girls I'm real particular
Lovin' the tour shot when the fellas get to bumpin hoes
City to city in the motels be pumpin those
I ain't sweatin that, that ain't lavish
Because back in the days we used to have this
Lavish to me is watchin girls all plex
Niggas get to trippin' 'cause I work Rolex
I gives a fuck about a nigga and a punk-ass bitch
I'm with the 415, my name is Young Richie Rich
Just a fresh young brother, no preservatives added
And that's Double R's definition of lavish

DJ Daryl cuts up:
(The money still love, still livin' lavish)
(Takes money to survive)

(VERSE 3: Tone)
Rich, let me describe the motive of a player
But first I gotta relax my feet and smoke a tailor
'Cause I'm about to spit it straight from the set
Give it to 'em all as lavish as lavish can get
First topic is monetary
Can you handle cash? The test is kinda scary
'Cause I'm the kind of brother who has to have it lavish
Bitches on my tip, just wish you could have this
First off, check it, I'll describe a trap
Down on the west side where the fresh get frap
Boomin-ass hot thub
With a bowl, all the bitches singin' the rubadubdub
Caviar, wine with a cracker
And if you're pickin' too hard it'll distract ya
Rollls Royce, dip into freestyle
And to the hoes on the set you know I'm drivin' 'em wild
With the high-power Zeus and the ???? boost
Gold Rolex watches and money to boot
We keep flowin and flowin and keep showin, you know it
415's on the set, it's to the top where we're goin'
And it don't stop, because the hoes still jock
And yes, players like us are still 'em non-stop
DJ D in the back makin' 'em wish that they could have this
That's Tonio's definition of lavish

(VERSE 4: DJ Daryl)
What is the meaning of lavish? Yo, comin' from the DJ
It's goin' on tour and turntables do what I say
Spinnin and cuttin' and get royalty checks
And watchin the 415 snap necks
See, I spin for a livin', but now I get paid
And see they girls say that Daryl wears a high-top fade
We're goin' coast to coast, from L.A. to Miami
I'm gettin' a tux cold fitted for the Grammy's
As a DJ, man look, I gotta spin it
Hook up a beat, enter a contest, win it
We're a rap group, we're hittin harder than the Beatles
But my only prime: I keep tearin up needles
When the record makes a funny sound I just grab it
And that's DJ Daryl's definition of lavish

DJ Daryl cuts up:
(For those that don't know: mail means money)

(VERSE 5: D-Loc)
Lavish to D is livin' life with ease
Straight loungin - while my money work for me
And if the flow gets low, no sweat on mine
I just pull out the pen and put my name on the dotted line
You got a problem, the Locster can solve it
Your money well is dry, mines flow like water
I never have to worry about shit
I ain't livin' large, nigga, I'm livin' lavish
Home in the hills, my own windmill
Satellite dish for the late night tip
Freaknasty for every day of the weak
I make a nigga stand guard when I'm feelin' kinda sleepy
Everywhere I go people know the name
I'm in the top rank because of money and fame
Yeah, that's how I'm livin' in this world of madness
And that's D-Loc's definition of lavish

DJ Daryl cuts up:
(Just livin' lavish)
