What, uhh, yo

Just when things seemed the same,
And the whole scene is lame
I come and reign with the unexplained
For the brains 'til things change
They strain to slang sling, I'm trained to bring game
History that I arranged been regained by King James

Go to practice, with tactics, when the track hits, theatrics
Women that look like actress the status of Cleopatra's
Stacks of mathematics to feed yo Asiatics
As I find out, what the facts is, for geographic

No time to sip Mo's with hostess,
never mind what the total gross is
I rip shows, stay focused, and split cheese, with soldiers
While you hit trees and coast I spit flows that be ferocious
And with these explosives, I split seas for Moses

Shine permanently only my mind's concernin me
Fire burns in me eternally time's eternity
Followers turn on me they'll be in a mental infirmary
Determinely advance technology better than Germany

Since the first days you know of, till the last days is over
I was always the flow-er, I made waves for Noah
From a compound, to the anatomy,
to the breakdown of a atom
Some of my rap patterns, still surround Saturn

From the ancient Hieroglyphics, to graffiti painted pictures
I study I know the scriptures but nowaday ain't it vicious
Date back I go beyond check the holy Qu'ran
To speeches at the altar on, now we get our party on

So being benificent, I bless em with dialogue
They expectin, the next testament by the God
I blow em through battlezones with chrome for chaperone
Blast beats with saxophones
One of the baddest rapper's known

Every country city and borough, sidestreet and ghetto
isle and alley and meadow theories ferile enough to echo
When it was one mass of land, with one nash' of man
And the whole mass was ran under one master plan

Since the world's metamorphis,
and the plan is kept in orbit
Turntables we spin off but the needles never skip off it
Rhythms we expressin similar to our ancestors
It'll answer your questions if you understand the message

From the days of the slave choppers,
to the new age of prophets
As heavy as hip-hop is I'm always ready to drop it
from the mind which is one of Allah's best designs
And mines'll stand the test of time, when I rhyme

The 18th Letter, the prophecy professor
I stay clever, long as the planet stay together
Bring up praise from Mecca, make a phrase for the better
In new days to remember, always and forever

(Repeat 2X)

The R, baby
