Vibes and Stuff
Let me flaunt the style, I think that the time's near That we drop Scuds, there won't be no duds here Rappers play the dumb, kinda on the space tip But when they hear the jams, they be on the dilsnick Now I'm not for the rock, I know the territory Go ahead and try, that's a different story Similar to Grimm, I could tell a better one All about a kid, who couldn't rap and didn't run Stands on the side when the mic is getting dumb Resorts to bagging Billy, asking could he have some No never ever, go back and try again man If you come back, I'll be the first to shake your hand Competition's good, it brings out the vital parts The Abstract Poetic, majors in recital arts Do it for the kids, the elders and the rap peers We know the job is done when we hear a lot of cheers Gotta feel the vibes, real from my creation If the hands clap I'm filled with elation Here I am ghetto, full with a lot of steam Think I gotta, I think I gotta, I think I gotta scream Cause that's how good it feels child Let your hair down, so we can get buckwild Do your ill dance, don't think about the next man We must have unity and think of the bigger plan Division we will fall, we must stick together, see I'd like to take this time to say what's up to Kool G The name is Q-Tip, the Midnight Marauder Giving nuff respects to Afrika Bambaataa As a man in the world, I must do my job Take care of Mama Duke, I won't resort to rob Bob you'll get your dough, Mase is my witness Obsessed with the rap, for it's the mental fitness Like shooting Cee-lo, and always hitting head cracks The industry is luck, winning with the fake raps Peace to the crews who pump the real hip hop Not selling out, from hardrock to disc jock I don't know what to say, but here I go freak it If the papes come, then you know I'll seek it I'm just a short brother, dark skin face Weigh a buck-fifty, 36 waist Hair is crazy curly, flip like Mr. Furley To this day I still believe that no MC can serve me Brothers try to front, but everybody know I get more props than the Arsenio Hall Show Party animal I was, but now I chill at home All I do is write rhymes, eat, drink, shit and bone Found my thrill in Amityville, I'm always in the Island Fudge and Lucky know the time, they know who keeps 'em smiling Go out on my own, something that I gotta do Do what the hell I want and have no one to listen to I'm prompt with my business and I do things on the double Yo, I'm out like Buster Douglas, I say peace to MC Trouble Rest in Peace Word Up, rest in Peace, and you know what else?
