Now for a public service announcement: "If your kid goes out and blows somebody's head off because Allen Iverson has said he was going to blow somebody's head off on wax, then you're doing a bad job as a parent." Why the caveat, issued by budding rapper Iverson in The Philadelphia Inquirer? Excerpts from his new single, 40 Bars:

Man enough to pull a gun
Be man enough to squeeze it
Blink if you don't believe it
Anything to do with millions I'm gonna be with it....

Get murdered in the second and first degree
Come to me with faggot tendencies
You be sleeping where the maggots be....
Won't catch me as a victim in a rap casualty....

Everybody stay fly
Get money, kill and f—- bitches
I'm hittin' anything
And planning on using my riches....
Down for zero digits
I'm a giant you're a midget....

I know niggas that kill for a fee
That would kill your ass for free
Believe me
How you wanna die, fast or slowly?...

Now I'm reaching for heat
Leave you leakin' in the street
Nigga screamin' he was a good boy
Ever since he was born
Butf—- it, he gone
Life must go on
Niggas don't live that long....
This type of murder don't need no hook
Just 40 f——— bars from the mouth of a crook...yo

[Sound of gun being cocked and fired.]
