1. UGK (Ft. Outkast) – “International Players Anthem”

So, I typed a text to a girl I used to see/ Sayin’ that I chose this cutie pie with whom I wanna be, and/ I apologize if this message gets you down/ Then I cc’d every girl that I’d see see ’round town…

2. UNK (Ft. Andre 3000 & Jim Jones) – “Walk It Out (Remix)”

Walk it out like a usher/ If you say “real talk” I probably won’t trust ya/ If you wanna go to war/ The gun’s my pleasure/ Even Jesus Christ had 12 disciples on the level, trigger, whatever…

3. Devin The Dude (Ft. Andre 3000 & Snoop Dogg) – “What A Job”

We do it for that boy that graduated/ That looked you in your eyes real tough and said “‘preciate it”/ And that he wouldn’t have made it if it wasn’t for your CD number nine…

4. Sleepy Brown (Ft. Outkast) – “I Can’t Wait”

I’m laughing at the calendars and clocks/ Ascot to match the socks/ Whats in your Speakerboxxx?/ Pink And Blue…
