real wild
just cant chill out
since a lil child basically till now
been a spaz since since simpson and millhouse been pals
since al and clinton
bills now paid
grown and i feel proud
i don't cry over milk getting spilled out
i don't play though when i play shows
i play those like its play dough and im paid dough
slay foes like doughboy when they hit ricky
still cant delegate - look how i get busy
im just a menace every single sentence
im sentencing currupt judges to the peneten
the white eminem, the black bob dylan
what more can i say? top billin
lately im feline like a star wars star -
part villain but bigger part hero in the end god willin'
im out here…

these days i walk the streets in a heat wave
feet ache and my skin tanner than dj
brain full bitties, bag full of beat tapes
heart full of hope, belly full of cheese steak
cheapskate: i would buy bk on ebay
anything for a free shake and a rebate
release date? please wait
promise when i give it tho it wont
be late or delayed
back to spittin flows
bugging out, given em another sound
one thats found underground
some say above the clouds
well i cant lie the man flyer than these standbyers
they just want that plane/plain - i'll take the handglider
i don't sell
never been a sanjaya idol
or a boy band made up of vampires
i just spit lava
these kids hand dryers, campfires
sm1 turn up the amp higher
tell em im out here
