Lyrics:

[Intro - Royce Da 5'9]
Yeah, yeah
Sway and Tech nigga.
My name is Five Nine.
Yeah I been in the game for a minute.
Shout out to GangStarr,
Whaddup Preem. (Back 2 Basics)

[Chorus]
A lotta shit has happened, since I started rappin'
A lotta shit has happened, since I started rappin'
A lotta shit has happened, since I started rappin'
There's been enough beef, and enough gat clappin'

[Royce Da 5'9]
Check it out.
Yeah.
I done became a target.
From the bottom, became the hardest artist in the game.
The first time they started to market my name
I started to change.
Smart, but hardly could think logically.
The insane part of me layin inside of me says pardon me
So I part with the same side of me.
I hang out with the same guys;
Either they not noticin' the game changin me
Or they ain't watchin me.
Bitches sayin, hi to me.
Niggaz who ain't hot as me.
Picturin' me slayin niggaz gettin plain tired o' me.
Lookin down at 'em when he got the same vibe as me.
We the same, niggaz aim just as high as me.
Everything is the same with us, but the thing is
I came in here with a different anxiety.
Hopefully the day I retire is approachin'
Me lookin back like those were the days I was fly.
(And y'all gon' learn) from the mistakes
To wait and to be patient.
Wrong turns did take up a lot of time.
But I finally found my way around. Now I'm wiser
And I thank God that I made it out alive.

[Chorus]

[Common]
One man rises, another falls
To discover all is one and one is all.
I come to call like Jericho with the trumpets.
It's wild in the hunids, Grams' in the choir hummin'
The Lord soon cometh.
From blow, some grow.
Many stay stunted. Talks with the shorties knowin'.
I learn from it. Keep the dumb shit from my circumference.
I run with niggaz that want it and done it, the hunted and blunted.
L said it gotta come from the stomach.
To me the stomach is the voice of the Lord,
The revolutionary People's Choice, the award.
Seein souls move forward.
Goals move toward new homes and new floors
For us to rise to.
In the attic tapin' up my Bible, thinkin how can I apply it to survival.
The un-American Idol seein vital signs of tha times.
I put it in my rhymes...
A lotta shit has happened.

[Chorus]

[Chino XL]
Yo
Welcome, lambs, to the slaughter.
It's the most important moment in my life since the birth of my daughters.
Regardless, all is well in the universe.
Premier track, and Chino who cannot spit a wack verse?
My first CD's basically made me Marky Mark
With the whole Planet of the Apes chasin me.
Was here to save you all. Now rap ain't worth savin,
But I can't hit the pavement with gay shit like Craig David.
Vocal arrangements even basic, I'm still the hottest
nigga to spit inside o' my cousin Tigga basement.
I've no replacement for what's seeming like ages
I ain't no hypochondriac complainin', I stay sick.
Standin ovations for acapella shitiations
I get better with agin', everybody's observation.
Starvation to brawl The Last Samurai
Take an eye for an eye till the world goes blind.
I'm bovine - raging bull, words are my weapons hoping not over ya head like Kangos in '87.
I move from Jerz' to Cali' feellin the love.
Moved m'moms to Miami, promised I would.
Beef 'n drama I've been in, you wouldn't last through.
What's funny muthafucka, I wanna laugh too.
But now I'm ready to get rich, old dog new tricks,
So ill, could dig to China with chopsticks.
When I switch to the big leagues this year with no fear
Cuz who'd even believe that I'd be here.

[Chorus]
