lyrics

I Represent that, Represent that,
I do it for the love of it and not for the wealth
I Represent that, Represent that,
I do it for my family, I do it for myself

I represent that Westside,
So don't disrespect that and end up on my bad side
Cuz nobody wanna see the dark side of this bright smile
that'd be, no more Mr. Nice Guy
That ain't my style, but don't mistake my
kindness for weakness, cuz you will not take what's mine
and you will not break my stride
I fight for my dignity, and not for a price.

I Represent that, Represent that,
I do it for the love of it and not for the wealth
I Represent that, Represent that,
I do it for my family, I do it for myself

It's been a long rocky road and I don't mean ice cream
but I stay cool under pressure when I'm fighting
My whole life has been a disciplined path
so please believe what I've taken from it's, to give it right back
and it's what I will spend my life at,
to share where I've come from, the pride is in the path
Started from the bottom, now we do what we do
So to the 9 to 5 underdogs, I'm rooting for you
and when you do:

Represent that, Represent that,
Do it for the love of it and not for the wealth
Represent that, Represent that,
Do it for your family, Do it for yourself

From the mouka to makai & the windward to leeward
we set sail to return like the iwa bird
I live the free bird life, I wanna see the world,
through the eyes of my little girl
Kaya you have my eyes on you always and my smile
you've got my heart inside of yours child
and that's the heart of a lion, how I protect my pride
and never lose my faith in god

I'm gonna
Represent that, Represent that,
I do it for the love of it and not for the wealth
I Represent that, Represent that,
I do it for my family, I do it for myself
