And my man cl smooth kick it for you like this From the heights, not what am I write, simple I can do this Like Popeye to Brutus, I’m your host like a stewardess Fly with the neighborhood hi-jackin' fella So prepare for landing, and crash into a cellar Bodies in the Buddha cloud, misty in the tune Like a show all nights, a figure eight in a lagoon With Pete Rock, the complete lock and beat stop Now all the horny heffers wanna dangle on my er Down by the dungeon with the cracks on the wall Buffoon I’m like a mink while you’re soon to pimp a raccoon stole Vocal arrangement, ready set to hit the pavement But not before the kid leave the basement The basement, put the funk in grand Here comes my man My brother, grap lover, get wreck cousin, c’mon Call me the grap lover, yes, the younger soul brother Keep your eyes on the prize cause you won’t find another When the funk is played, the rhyme I display Quick to bust a ditz so don’t slip in the way Of the kid, with the flavor, the party people savior Clockin' all the honies, eyes sharp like a razor I kick a dance step, you’re soon to discover Yo, that’s the kid from mecca and the soul brother Yeah once in a while I be with cl on the dl Or I flow with pete, and find my placement in the basement The basement, yes where the beats and the rhymes flow Peace I gotta go, grapster’s out the door of the basement Of the basement! next we got, a special guest I ain’t gonna tell you who it is C’mon, rap along Tick tock tick, things are gettin' thick Here comes the heavster, and I know it makes ya - sick!
