 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

I be that mind blessin' blessin' these lessons we've ignited 
Want to bring it to my face man you're cordially invited 
'Cause I've cited  you possess no science in your thinking 
So I'm gonna (never) you're blinking! 

Fingers be pointin' and leakin' falsifyin' the stink 
You think I'm pink I bl l link with them shades of thought and think 
(And in this corner be the hush) so play on William Rhodes 
'Cause at the sound of the bell my circle square controls 
And all MC's best sweat, we bringin' buckets of heat 

So don't fret kid I let you lick the love I secrete, yo 
Even my foes give me bravos, and that shows 
Total domination in this rhyme complication 

Yeah the skill is a cinch I rock the womb with a mic 
And in the days of the nickel and breast, I knew de yes yes y'allin'
Was the callin', clearly not for the gat 
For combat, I bring a bag of my rhymes for the SAT 

I'm Plug One-of-a-kind, for you people's delight 
And for you sucker MC's, step to your knees 
Ain't no second thoughts and all your thoughts are from Orion 
I can tell that you a devil by them rhymes you're designin' 
Your play doggin' tactics can't f*ck with my facets 
Just because you talk all that glock shit don't mean you can rock 
Your identities on freeze 
Just a form of protozoa tryin' to cross them seas 
See high horse riders gettin' shot by the sheriff 
'Cause nobody's safe for crimes 
And even all you skirts need to checkin' in your upstairs attic 
'Cause Mase is smackin' hoes if hoes is startin' static 

Now it ain't all good when your jam goes wood 
So as a deterrent, I use mental current 
Got them brothers shook, peep the look comin' out of the face 
'Cause they all catch a bruise from the hits we make 
Your fame and cars should be listed as magnets 
Legends never die but they can get shot and killed 
Ain't nuttin' glitter when you're battlin MC's 
You once imitated in a mirror so to down syndrome you kneel 

The same status I heard, the same nothin' 
My ears fears the faulty locks tryin' to lock down the stops 
But I earn more than your Menudo or your Boyz II Men 
While down syndrome keeps you immune to frequencies I send 
Fresher than a sniff off havin' them J in fifth 
I identify with your rhythm 
But I exist for more than just a Benz, so mends 
I'm cuttin' off my friends to keep a smile calicum iron grain 

Let me tell you a little something about Soul (tell em son) 
I be a piece of the East coast, so give a toast to 
Plug Wonder why back in the day who soaked his words in jigga 
So when I ran a phrase in June you didn't catch it til December 
I'm a member of them kids from the inner city 
Giving you kitties audible treats, you be aching for making 
More money than a pagan holiday 
Not from the PJ's, yet I still got something to say 

Say what man? You gritty like a diamond grenade 
For the cameo spot you tries to fool Parade 
You acrobats flip the star gazin' map, for alla that 
You'll be the first to place, and ran it all to a waste 
And all the style that you bring (gotta make decks bend) 
You gotta rip it from the start (when the beats come in!)
