    Let's make it clear...This is what we come to parties to do!

    Verse I

    Mental enslavement and pavements have blood stains
    Single mama pain smack dab in flood plains

    Hood supermarkets don’t even carry no whole grains
    Evading diabetes as well as the blown brains

    Where some don’t mind dying for wards they proclaim
    Surroundings in which I was raised and maintained

    But on the open market, these stocks get low gains
    if you ain’t smoking strains or rockin that cocaine

    but me I rock mics, cross borders and make change
    on, passenger trains, cars, buses and jet planes

    20 cities just to boost the recognition of name
    Not an Irene Cara type that be lookin’ for fame

    To be the most popular was never the aim
    To empower and make wack cats step up they game

    You got a problem tell me bout it, ain’t no bxxch in my veins
    Forever for the people won’t be switchin’ no lanes

    Failure came knocking, I never let it in
    Heard the beats droppin’, was ready to begin
    Losing? Forget it, we set it for the win

    Get it, MOVING, CRACKIN’, POPPIN’—IN!(4x)

    Verse II

    (If) these young cats want direction, I give 'em my spiel
    Lay it out in black and white like Heidi + Seal

    Somebody try to discover you, it’s best that you yield
    Discovered people got smallpox in blankets concealed

    Decimated after teaching (colonists) preparation of meals
    Exported 9000 miles to pick cotton in fields

    I once waited on this one cat to gimmie a deal
    Masquerading pro-Black bxxch nxxga (that) wasn't for real

    When we'd speak, my release date he'd never reveal
    Felt like two Technics, he was spinning my wheels

    Said between commercial and conscious he would level the field
    Tried to switch my steez up, we didn’t congeal

    Stifled my momentum, fate almost got sealed
    I was out like the Clampets in that automobile

    If it go commercial, wouldn’t from switching my feel
    Like Rocksteady Flashdancing w/ Jennifer Beal


    Verse III

    I live along the Mississippi, as once did Choctaw
    Most times rhyming, I hold the microphone southpaw

    Big Daddy Kane, Juice Crew, it's undoubtedly raw
    MC Shan, Shante, authentic, down by the law

    Man, I'm cold...and still stay fresh when I thaw
    I kept grinding, because success I foresaw

    Professional presentation leave spectators in awe
    We left the static in on purpose, no it wasn't a flaw

    Storm hit and for life we had to tooth and to claw
    People suffered, and who prospered? halliburton and shaw

    I worked for almost everything that about me you saw
    Dueling with the industry, take 10 paces and draw

    Petty criticism, that's the back breaking straw
    These blog saggin bout to kcuf around, get bust in they jaw

    Promoters think we rock free, aw family naw
    Hit your financial institutions and proceed to withdraw
