Every two lines of lyrics goes through this progression (keep it going through
the rap): 

Capo 3 
E E/A B E/A 
(repeat forever!!!)

--------

Capo 3 
(relative to the capo)

  E (E or A) B
e 0  0    0  0
b 0  0    0  0
g 9  8    8  6
d 9  9    9  7
a 7  7    9  7
E 0  0    7  5

--------

Start learning by strumming once, then slapping.  Pick up the in-between strums
as you pick up on the strum pattern/rhythm.

I was playing the song and realized the second E sounded like an A, so I added
the option for you guys to choose from because the A sounds just as good as the
E but it makes it easier to go into the B.  So choose which chord you'll use.

While strumming, you only need to hit the a, d, and g strings, but I think it
doesn't sound bad to add the other strings here and there as well, so mute them
if you want.


Another method: (not played on the album, but still plays well with it)

Capo 5 
D A G A 
(repeat forever!!!)

----

Capo 5
(relative to capo)

  D A G
e 2 0 0
b 3 3 3
g 2 2 0
d 0 2 0
a 0 0 2
E x x 3

----

For this progression don't worry about muting anything, because honestly, it
sounds better when most of the strings are hit.  But make sure, if any, you hit
the a, d, and g strings.

Try it out, it sounds good!

Disclaimer: I don't know the technical names of the chords, but the tabs are 
correct.

I wanted to submit this song because the other tabs using these chords do a bad
job of clearly presenting the tabs.  I also have more tips on here.  So it would
probably benefit this community to add this tab (or replace the other tabs with 
this one) because I was having a rough time figuring out the tabs that are 
currently available, even though its such a simple song.
