lyrics

IM KEEPIN EM CHOKIN, LOOKIN AT ME, SEEIN IM OPEN
CLOSIN, SUPPOSED TO BE HAVIN A SHOW FOR FOLDIN
GOLDEN, WHO REALLY WANTS TO BATTLE ME FOR OWNIN
NO ONE, SAYING SO LONG TO YA OLD SONGS

IM MAKIN EM MAD WHAT A FAILURE TO ILLUSTRATE
THE MATH ID HATE TO TAKE YA PLANS, AND YOUR AIMS OF 80 GRAND
BUT THERE AINT A CHANCE, YOU COULD ENTER MY CYPHER
IM LIVER THAN AN ALL NIGHT NIGHT RIDE COMBINER

YA MINOR, BUT NOTHIN TO LOOSE IS DANGEROUS
SEE FAME TO US, WAS NEVER PART OF THE PLAN
IT JUST STRAIGHT CAME TO US, ID RATHER BE NAMELESS
BUT STILL POSESS THE SKILL TO ACHIEVE THE A PLUS

THE BEATS NUTS, DO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD ?
MOST THE TIME I HOLD MY BREATH WHEN IN THE REEFA FOG
DONT REALLY EAT A LOT, PROBLY DRINK ALCOHOL MORE
ILL HIT MY HOME STORE BEFORE WE DO A WHOLE TOUR

----

TWISTIN SCIENCE, AMPLIFY MY
APPLIANCE HIGHER THAN ANY LEVEL, COVERED IN THE LICENSE
IM JUST, REMEMBERING THAT THE WEDDING RING
I USED TO ROCK AROUND MY NECK IS NOW NOT ANYTHING

THE BELL TOLLS, THE PENNY BRINGS , MANY THINGS
BUT NOT WHAT IS GONE, AINT NO 3 KINGS
ILL KEEP HYMS FOR WHEN THERE SEEN TO BE APPROPRAITE
I USED TO HAVE A BIBLE, COULDNT BRING MYSELF TO OPEN IT

A B-BOY, IN A B-BOY STANCE
FLATTEN WEAK MC'S JUST TO IRON OUT THE FANS
TRY MY HANDS, IM DEADLY WITH THE 1&2'S
ALSO, HERE'S YOUR OPTIONS YOU CAN EITHER LOOSE OR GO

MORE DOUGH, 2 INCREASE THE WAX COLLECTION
SEARCHIN FOR THE ALBUM FROM THE BOLUVARD OF LINDEN
UNITED KINGDOM, STRUGGLIN TO FIND ITS PLACE
HARD PRESSED TO FIND MC'S THAT CAN RHYME THIS GREAT

----

METHODICAL, ... CARRY OUT THE PROCEDURE
NONE OF C-CITY SEEIN ME EITHER
THE GREAT BELIEVER, ILL STICK TO WHAT I KNOW BEST
MUSICALLY YA MUSICS IN A CAGE MADE OF STONE MESH

FELL IN THE TRAP, ITS VERY HARD TO RETURN
THE REVERB AINT MY LARGEST CONCERN
I EARNED, RESPECT FROM DOIN MANY FREE SHOWS
MOST THE TIME IM MAKIN BEATS EATIN DORTIOS

CASINOS, IM NEVER MAKIN GAMBLE TRACKS
I GUARANTEE THAT EVERY LINE YOULL HEAR IS ACTION PACKED
THE OPPOSITE OF YA SHOWS AND FANS THAT YOU ATTRACT
ILL DROP A RELEASE, LAY-LOW AND THEN ILL SOON BE BACK

MASTER OF CREATION, ME N JESUS HAD A MEETIN
THE ADAM OF THE EVE SHIT WAS LEFT UP IN THE EDAN
THIS IS POSITIVE READIN, ITS A QUALITY FEELIN
ALL LOCKS OFF THE BOX HIP HOP THAT IM FEEDIN

-----

THE REASON THAT YOUR HERE'S TO ROCK WITH US NOW
MR. RIC, HOLDIN IT, DOWN.. LIKE BIG L
THIS YEAR AINT FOR HALF HEARTED ARTISTS
THIS ONE HERE'S FOR THE SLEPT ON MARKET
