rap genius - heads sayin he should blow (he should tho)
rap genius - got good quotes and footnotes
look - who else spittin the most urgent
most soul-searchin perfectly dope verses
and no curses
ask any analyst, journalist, panelist
whos canada's unimanimous circa 98 canibus
ambulance vans when my jams spin - it's calamitous
sendin bands into banishment
dammit i need no laminate - yall know the name
im the rap game villain
shad k. back stage in the bat cave chillin
bumpin bad brains with a bad dame
wheelin in the fast lane
rugrat still these cats cant kill him
kids talkin bout, "i just need a co-sign - one break!"
all i need's a drum break and one take
im unsafe - yall soft as sunday brunch dates with bundt cake
got crowds jumpin like i just done a pump fake
man this is just 1/8th - just a morsel
i got more flows
yall just mortals, even moreso
this is morse code from the north pole
to warn folks:
the storm crow's comin thru your war zone
lords knows i was born dope
goin back like corn rows
i amaze (i am maize) like corn rows
pure jokes still i can rage like hormones
im a oracle, im next level: warp zone
the forbes shows what they net
but im more gross - sick as a sore throat
the kid isnt normal
hard core flows but he spit with a warm tone
the whip isnt much but his chick is a norah jones
im eatin all yall food by the fork load
golden arches or ol girl with the orange fro
no actually i'll have your pork roast and orzo
make a short toast then pop the cork off the bordeaux
i could hold court with the foremost
i could tour coasts or teach a course load
at the sorbonne
forget 4 bars - every quarter note's historical
when i perform poems
im a force, im a horror show
man im in my z---, im in your zone
im on your porch, in your home
takin everything like it foreclosed
just me and t
stakin claims, takin names
i guess some things stay the same
still the champ
