young men on the street with a tek drawn
unless its on yonge street it gets slept on
for all the already lost and the next gone gotta do my best
this a fresh new next jawn kids play this on the block
like its hopscotch men that got gwop
play it in they drop top and turn this line up here
if the cops watch no you're not pigs
but the profilin's hog wash
as i continue to drive slow five-0 (bye)
hi habesha girl with the fly clothes
it says shady when i call on your iphone
and i get the feeling that it's not a typo -
ooh blame it on the rain. a lot cats rap but don't know what they're saying
it's not just milli vanilli
city to city im diddy samplin scritti pollitti
until im dizzy shad kizzy - whattup

ahem ...
mozart just wrote
a whole chart
these flows open doors
call em crow bars
i gotta go hard
play for my fan base
slide off the lampshade
shine - thats the mandate
T's on the cut - i don't need a band aid
ian is ill - please excuse my bandmates
we just on a rampage
cant stay long
just a handshake
gone 'cross the landscape
thanks yall
plan a's good
girl you know it's true
haven't made a milli
but what you gonna do
man im trying to stay tasteful
and im grateful tho still
this is live from the underground
april o'neil on that cable show
real turntables both wheels and a fatal flow
ILL with the fader showin skills
