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

featuring Masta Killa  Tekitha 

[martial arts movie sample] 
The technique  depends mainly 
on arm and finger strength 
Once you've that  then the next step 
is to learn how to pierce stone 
Well you might as well start practicing now 
Do you Do you Do you Do you 
Do you know  mantis legends? 
How it was it all started? 
It was fighting off this blackbird 
Although it was only a tenth of the bird's size 
it was a very valiant insect 
And that's why the technique, needs a brave man 
And a strong one, who isn't afraid of birds 

[Bobby Digital] 
Welcome back to the temple of hip-hop and Sword Kem'po 
Lyrical rhyme nympho, be	-boy Bob Digital 
Diamond crystal ring solid gold bone rituals 
We be the humble most calmest individuals 
Hard to spot microdots, we Sasquatch 
Stomp MC's, third eye Cyclops lazer beam shots 
being fired once the father get raised up 
We John Blaze up, abrasive heat, from the phaser gun 
Never left for a stun Dunn, Atilla the Hun 
type Killa Park Hilla, eighteen wheeler Mack's 
in the truck lanes, from the rugged grains 
of Shaolin soil, the red wolves be prowlin 
Howlin over the shit that got the whole world bowin 
We spoiled, one thousand swordsmen 
One thousand recordings, one thousand Wu stores and 
One thousand rap tours and global insurance 
Not your everyday occurrence 
My rhyme torments MC's with the fear of God 
You'll be cursed like Farad, and struck by the iron rod 

Chorus: Tekitha 

Hell's Wind Staff, the wrath of Black Titans 
Niggaz battlin, sword swingin 
Cutthroat women, whirlwind given save the children 
Escape the poverty for live and, let live 
Die by the mic, shadow steel by night 
(repeat 2X) 

[movie dialogue] 
Man-Mantis style isn't easy to learn 
A mantis is small, but powerful 
With it's arms, it can lift up many times it's own weight 

[Masta Killa] 
On behalf of the Wu-Tang Clan I'll display 
the Hong Kong, Shaolin King Kong poems 
Slaps niggaz in half from Kwan'tan 
Ten tigers scratch like Allah math, the Hell's Wind Staff 
Watch the eight diagram strike the diaphragm 
Pierced lung minute from tongue double-edged 
sound the drum, here I come as predicted 
Holdin the raw seal, all heads kneel 
7th Degree black mic skill is ill, listen to the guns holler 
Swallow the shell, East New York terrorist 
Break fool to this, madness, crazy low-hand 
grabs the mic stand, smooth as water 
Spat Seven Seas you've not yet mastered 
Breathe and lungs wheeze, Earth kills 
I'm wreckin MC's, blood spills, meadow is round 
The piercin sound of Shaolin's deafens ears 
Fires fears, wood sharp eagle claw tears 
tree from bark, hard to maintain control 
When you leakin I stand with the strength of Jobe 
and hold pleasure that I bust your head, while I'm teachin 
civilization, one havin Knowledge 
Wisdom Understanding, cultural firemen 
Knowledge savage in pursuit of happiness 
Thunderous mantis, all chant this
