[Pos Plug Wonder Why] 
(What the hell do you want to be when you grow up?) 
I want to be a supa emcee 
(Well you're already that) so let me step up to bat 
Attack a hit to go beyond this age of rap counterfeits 
Out of the heavens August one seven  sixty nine 
Born I  wonder why with the thoughts to rhyme 
Til there was no longer thoughts to dream 
When an unpolished demo led to limos at the age of eighteen 
Accompanied by the screams, Plug One 
Shot up with fame like novacaine it made me numb 
So numb I wouldn't been able to feel 
Niggaz diggin in my pockets for my currency reels 
But still, I make girls brown eyes blue at will (until) 
My ass was no longer mass appeal 
Oh shit, I guess that was all the fame I was alloted 
Wait a minite, new video, like a leopard I'm spotted 
In a night club chillin with Kamaal and Phife 
I be that farmer cultivating owning acres of mics 
And I likes to make it known Strong Island stylin 
For a while, so do that dance 
(Are you rockin the spot?) Yes I be 
(Showin others they do not?) Yes I be 
(Havin then towed from the lot?) Yes I be 
That's my job as a supa emcee, I'm from Long Isle 
Mobile, make it worth your while 
If the jam needs motion I'm the one to dial 
(Goin beyond ninety watts) Yes I be 
(Well are you rockin it?) Yes, yes I be (rockin it!) 
I can stress the makin of loot to feed the fam 
While the voices impersonate the true who I am 
Buzzin in my ear, oh you one of those wannabees 
Always buzzin in my ear you down with supa emcees 
Steppin to me with your pleas that you gots, butter rhymes 
Man the only thing butter bout you is your spine 
Mad yellow, you can't rock the Mardi Gras, my mellow 
Cause my stealth show more than knowledge of self 
I got knowlegde of you, to know you a wack em-crew 
(You mean wack emcee) Nah, a wack em-crew, see you a crew of wack 
Niggaz 
You should have never tried to test 
These words that I Man, with the eye/I to Fest 
While you sayin one thing really meaning the next 
You're just a contra-DICK, your mind's been tampered WITH 

Like some holy boooks, but looks to the sky 
Cause Wonder Why's here to save the day 
(Are you rockin the spot?) Yes I be 
(showin others they do not?) Yes I be 
(Havin then towed from the lot) Yes I be 
Cause ultimately, I'm lettin all MC's know that 
What's the name of this crew? (De La, De La) 
Well alright, and what be the dish we servin? 
(We servin pos-da!) Posdanos help the next get loose 
Like an alcohol scenario rap be on the rocks 
Authenticity that missin fee to pay to join the flock of MC 

These niggaz stand lower than knees 
Dramatized in they eyes as the ones to please 
When rap kids apply violent pressure to father, brother and son 
For fun to say they inflict pain 
R&B niggaz lie to mother, sister, and daughter 
To have sex disguised as lovin in the rain 
Their words are more hallow than October 31st 
What's worse, hate to see the females 
Switch to sexual mentality, it doesn't match with they given anatomy 
Man they rather be hoes like that male emcee 
Who walk around like they got nuts 
And use the tits and ass like a crutch 
Man the underground's about not bein exposed 
So you better take you naked ass and put on some clothes 
Man this be goin out to the kids from east smash (long island) 
Amityville (long island) 
To all my people out in whinedance, bayshore (long island) 
C.I.'s in the place (long island) 
Brinkwood, hempstead, all my (long island) 
Brothers out in roosevelt, freeport (long island) 
Uniondale to long beach (long island) 
To them girls out in huntington (long island) 
Long island for real (long island)
