You Never Knew
Hiero, y'all It's not a wrong thing To be addicted to the microphone like a heroin fiend I'll tell you one thing You'll never catch me fronting As I proceed to give the people what they wanting You're making some green But not for glamour or fashion I'm stacking cash until I can get moms a mansion All from rapping? Nah, man, there's many plans Like investing in land It started all from impressing the fans With brand-new flows And you know All the way from gangsta clones to weirdos Fools used those But we ain't tripping Give respect when you see this You need us Or your rhymes underdevelop like a foetus Those that know, not doze And it shows When we broke out the knock Hoes hopped out they clothes That's positive feedback Yep, The prose I'm poised, we never pose, you'll never know From ninety-three 'till infinity, we've been inventive Creating the bump is our only incentive And it's been a long time since I feel I've been felt But the only thing I fear is fear itself So you know what we gots to do Maybe could we keep it within the crew Like it should be? Never givin' out We're livin' out our dreams If there's something I can't live without That's my team You never knew Hieroglyphics Hip-hop is vintage Underground like silos Launching long-range ballistics World-renowned, we ground-breaking Musical boundaries Runnin' circles around emcees Del, been rhyming for more than a decade Onto the next stage, while emcees need aid Stay paid, I'm still grade-A None of that tomfoolery As you can see, this shit ain't nothing new to me Utterly hovering over other things material You're stuck in the here and now Plus you're sweating profusely, here's a towel Your fears are now reality When I take your dream states And elaborate on how your team's fake Like phony IDs, but sometimes I feel like Only I see through the charade you've made In today, but hey, tomorrow it's played And then they got a new fool in your place to be okayed Hieroglyphics Hip-hop is vintage Invented in days back Rekindling in ways that many thought was lost In this contemporary maze of methods to floss We finding trees and trails to blaze Boundaries to cross We can be found beyond the bounds of reason Or earthbound, heatin' up the Coliseum They rushed the stage full-throttle in Chicago Our brains interlocked Where fakin' emcees get caught with the forty-bottle Or get their chains snatched, pronto We unstoppable, droppin' flows in Toronto Maneuverin' through Vancouver and on to Japan Where they put major grands in my hand Follow Straight from the heart, we set apart from the rest an' Our perfection on the microphone was predestined World-renowned, we ground-breaking Musical boundaries Runnin' circles around emcees
