Lyrics:

I make a motherf*cka say ‘Oh yeah!’
I’m cold as a lion with no hair
And, if you ever see me fighting in the forest with a grizzly bear
Help the bear
Cuz that b*tch gon’ need it!

These bars aren’t from a radio hit, but a 2012 freestyle performed by Mystikal during an appearance on  appearing on DJ Green Lantern’s Invasion Radio on Hip Hop Nation, Sirius/XM 44.
