TUNING: STANDARD
NO CAPO

I'm including two ways to play the chords, in case you can't take on the barre chords yet.
Feel free to mix and match; it sounds pretty good with open Dm and barred Bb, for example.
I'll also list the intro here separately, since you probably only need this part at the beginning.

-- INTRO --

- Alternate between these first two positions, hitting the A & D strings (5th & 4th).
- The third (right-most) one is optional. Play it just once, after #2 and before #1.
It's like a "step" between.
- It also sounds best if you're throwing in some muting with either hand, if you are able to.

      #1       #2       #3

[Verse]

      Dm                                                
His palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
              Bb                        C               
There's vomit on his sweater already, mom's spaghetti
             Dm                                                
He's nervous, but on the surface he looks calm and ready
          Bb                  C                          
To drop bombs, but he keeps on forgetting
          Dm                                            
What he wrote down, the whole crowd goes so loud
      Bb                            C                    
He opens his mouth, but the words won't come out
        Dm                                              
He's choking, how? Everybody's joking now
             Bb                   C                      
The clock's run out, times up, over, blaoh!

       Dm                                               
Snap back to reality, oh, there goes gravity
Bb                           C                         Dm       
Oh, there goes Rabbit. He choked, he's so mad but he won't
                                             Bb              
Give up that easy, no, he won't have it he knows
                            C                         Dm      
His whole back's to these ropes, it don't matter he's dope
                                                    Bb         
He knows that but he's broke, he's so stagnant he knows
                                 C                          
When he goes back to his mobile home, that's when it's
Dm                                                           
Back to the lab again, yo
                       Bb                                    
This whole rhapsody better go capture this moment
      C                                                     
And hope it don't pass him
                                                           
                                                          
[Chorus]

            Dm                                               
You better lose yourself in the music
                     Bb                           C           
The moment, you own it, you better never let it go
            Dm                                            
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
           Bb                         C                       
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
             Dm                                              
You better lose yourself in the music
                    Bb                            C           
The moment, you own it, you better never let it go
              Dm                                             
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
           Bb                         C                       
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime


[Verse]

      Dm                                                
His soul's escaping, through this hole that is gaping
              Bb                        C               
This world is mine for the taking, make me king
      Dm                                                
As we move toward a new world order, a normal life is boring
              Bb                        C               
But superstardom's close to post mortem
      Dm                                                
It only grows harder, homie grows hotter
              Bb                        C               
He blows. It's all over, these hoes is all on him
      Dm                                                
Coast to coast shows, he's known as the Globetrotter lonely roads
              Bb                        C               
God only knows he's grown farther from home, he's no father
      Dm                                                
He goes home and barely knows his own daughter
              Bb                        C               
But hold your nose cuz here goes the cold water
      Dm                                                
These hoes don't want him no more, he's cold product
              Bb                        C               
They moved on to the next schmoe who flows
      Dm                                                
He nose dove and sold nada, so the soap opera is told it unfolds
              Bb                        C               
I suppose it's old partner, but the beat goes on
      Dm                                                
Da da dum, da dum da da da


[Chorus]

            Dm                                               
You better lose yourself in the music
                     Bb                           C           
The moment, you own it, you better never let it go
            Dm                                               
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
                     Bb                           C           
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime, yo
            Dm

                     Bb                           C           
The moment, you own it, you better never let it go

[Verse]

      Dm                                                
No more games, I'ma change what you call rage
                     Bb                           C           
Tear this motherfucking roof off like two dogs caged
      Dm                                                
I was playing in the beginning, the mood all changed
                     Bb                           C           
I've been chewed up and spit out and booed off stage
      Dm                                                
But I kept rhyming and stepped, writing the next cypher
                     Bb                           C           
Best believe somebody's paying the pied piper
      Dm                                                
All the pain inside amplified by the fact
                     Bb                           C           
That I can't get by with my 9 to 5
      Dm                                                
And I can't provide the right type of life for my family
                     Bb                           C           
Cause man, these goddamn food stamps don't buy diapers
      Dm                                                
And it's no movie, there's no Mekhi Phifer, this is my life
                     Bb                           C           
And these times are so hard and it's getting even harder
      Dm                                                
Trying to feed and water my seed, plus teeter-totter
                     Bb                           C           
Caught up between being a father and a prima donna
      Dm                                                
Baby mama drama's screaming on and too much for me to wanna
                     Bb                           C

      Dm                                                
Gotten me to the point I'm like a snail

I think the sync is often wrong during the second and third verses, here's how I would have synced the chords :
Dm
His soul's escaping, through this hole that is gaping
Bb C
This world is mine for the taking, make me king
Dm Bb
As we move toward a new world order, a normal life is boring
C Dm
But superstardom's close to post mortem
Dm Bb
It only grows harder, homie grows hotter
C Dm
He blows. It's all over, these hoes is all on him
Bb C
Coast to coast shows, he's known as the Globetrotter lonely roads
Dm
God only knows he's grown farther from home, he's no father
Bb C
He goes home and barely knows his own daughter
Dm
But hold your nose cuz here goes the cold water
Bb C
These hoes don't want him no more, he's cold product
Dm
They moved on to the next schmoe who flows
Bb C Dm
He nose dove and sold nada, so the soap opera is told it unfolds
Bb
I suppose it's old partner, but the beat goes on
C
Da da dum, da dum da da da

Dm
No more games, I'ma change what you call rage
Bb C
Tear this motherfucking roof off like two dogs caged
Dm

And I can't provide the right type of life for my family
C Dm
Cause man, these goddamn food stamps don't buy diapers

Correct lyrics. And chords for the most part. A lot of the verse is just playing back and forth between Dm and Dm sus3 (Dm and then adding the Bb note, or a 3rd) while a couple of the verse lines get all 3 chords thrown in at the more ending of the middle of the verse and at the end of the verse. The verse doesn't get all 3 chords repeating robotically throughout the song. It's mostly the Dm to Dm sus3 (adding a Bb note into the Dm chord) and the Dm/Bb/C chords only play in succession at the middle line and end line of the verse, more or less, and of course all 3 chords are used in the chorus. Otherwise the lyrics in this are correct.
