Verse 1:

Last take.... I got shit to do... So, here we go...

The flow's a vision, I'm always spitttin fact, it's never fiction
I'm always on my tracks like I was sent out on a mission
Take a listen, this form of art goes back a lengthy distance
Same reason that I rock with perfect timing and assistance

This the business, Independent, that's the way I ride
With this music, we infuse it with a lucent sense of pride
From the Great Lakes, the Midwest is down to take you high
Ain't been all around the world, but I'm bound to, I won't lie

Got the lucrative ties and formats that take the prize
No popped collar, no scholar, smokin somethin nice
And I still ain't forget where I came from, the same one
From back in '85, where they founded the name son

Ain't got time for no lame ass games, I got to play with my mind straight
Excel with lyrics like my state, abbreviated
See this ain't the average, I kill beats and they ecstatic
No nappin, I'm on the run to say what's happenin

With them snares, the bass, and kick drums... (come and get some)
This innovative way of recognition is persistent, for instance
I could think of verses in an instant, priceless
Or is it? My brotha, don't get it twisted

It's been put in it's simplest form, I'm here to inform
I brew the storm son, let it be known
This is T-H-E-O-R-E-T-I-C
It's official, speaking my mind to set me free

Chorus:

If you hustle or you skate man (Keep puttin that work in)
You gotta pay the rent then (Keep puttin that work in)
Tryin to cop a new whip (Keep puttin that work in)
I can only give my two cents (Keep puttin that work in)

If you in Philly or the Bronx yo (Keep puttin that work in)
Portland to Chicago (Keep puttin that work in)
L.A. to the Bizzay (Keep puttin that work in)
Even down in Mississippi (Keep puttin that work in)

Verse 2:

It's been a... long minute since I wrote that verse
So Imma drop a fresh one to compliment the first
Yeah I meant it how I said it, bound to see the world
Now I'm living overseas with my baby and my girl

But umm... Don't forget, I'm still a Chi-Town cat
That's imbedded in my roots, no one could fuck with that
Was making.. Dope beats when I met Term and Ac
Train of Thought came around and hit the net like crack

Back then, they used to call me Theory Divine
Changed my name to Theoretic so I'm easy to find
Still on the grind, gettin mine, you could tell by the rhymes
Givin little rappers goosebumps, R.L. Stine

This be that Boom Bap, shoes, hat, and green to get high
If you missin one of those, then you need to revise
I be.. On the paper like a suit to a tie
Groom to a bride, two of a kind, or burgers and fries

Peace to the people out there keeping Hip Hop alive
Bringin that fresh, raw shit that I need to get by
Puttin that work in, for certain, everyday
Rest In Peace to Dilla, Gang Starr, and MCA. I'm out

If you hustle or you skate man (Keep puttin that work in)
You gotta pay the rent then (Keep puttin that work in)
Tryin to cop a new whip (Keep puttin that work in)
I can only give my two cents (Keep puttin that work in)

If you in Philly or the Bronx yo (Keep puttin that work in)
Portland to Chicago (Keep puttin that work in)
L.A. to the Bizzay (Keep puttin that work in)
Even down in Mississippi (Keep puttin that work in) Ayo shoutouts to Nate Kiz on the beat..

Shoutouts to The Palmer Squares..

Y'all been nothin but good to me.

Keep puttin that work in..

Peace
