I rap for listeners, prisoners 
Henessey holders and old school niggas, then I be dissin' a 
Unofficial that smoke woolie thai 
I dropped out of Kooley High, gassed up by a coke head cutie pie 
Jungle survivor, f*ck who's the liver 
My man put the battery in my back, a difference from Energizer 
Sentence begins indented, with formality 
My duration's infinite, money wise or physiology 
Poetry, that's a part of me, retardedly bop 
I drop the ancient manifested hip-hop, straight off the block
I reminisce on park jams, my man was shot for his sheep coat 
I could see him drop in my weed smoke 
It's real, grew up in trife times, murderous nights white lines 
Hype vice, yeah 
Chill on the block with Cognac gold strap 
With my peeps that's into drug money, market into rap 
No sign of the beast in the blue Chrysler, I guess that means peace 
For niggas no sheisty vice to just snipe ya 
Start off the dice-rollin' mats for craps to Ceelo 
So roll a deuce nothin' below 
Peace God, now the shit is explained 
I'm takin' all you on a trip straight through memory lane 
Damn it's like that y'all, it's like that y'all

"Now let me take a trip down memory lane" 
"Comin' outta Queensbridge" 
"Now let us take a trip down memory lane" 
"Comin' outta Queensbridge" 
"Now let us take a trip down memory lane" 
"Comin' outta Queensbridge" 
"Now let us take a trip down memory lane" 
"Comin' outta Queensbridge" 

One for the money 
Two for pussy and foreign cars 
Three for Alize niggas deceased or behind bars 
I rap divine Gods check the prognosis, is it real, or showbiz? 
My window faces shootouts, drug overdoses 
Live amongst no roses, only the drama, for real 
A nickel-plate is my fate, my medicine is the ganja 
Here's my basis, my razor embraces, many faces 
Your telephone blowin', black stitches or fat shoelaces 
Peoples are petrol, dramatic automatic fo'-fo' I let blow 
And back down po-po when I'm vexed so 
My pen taps the paper then my brain's blank 
I see dark streets, hustlin' brothers who keep the same rank 
Pumpin' for somethin', some up-rise, plus some fail 
Judges hangin' niggas, uncorrect bails, for direct sales 
My intellect prevails from a hangin' cross with nails 
I reinforce the frail, with lyrics that's real
Word to Christ, a disciple of streets, trifle on beats 
I decipher prophecies through a mic and say peace
I hung around the older crews while they sling smack to dingbats 
They spoke of Fat Cat, that nigga's name made bell rings, back 
Some fiends scream, about Supreme Team, a Jamaica Queens thing 
Uptown was Alpo, son, heard he was kingpin, yo
F*ck 'rap is real', watch the herbs stand still 
Never talkin' to snakes 'cause the words of man kill 
True in the game, as long as blood is blue in my veins 
I pour my Heineken brew to my deceased crew on memory lane 

It's like that y'all, memory lane
It's nothin' like the memories boy, let me take a trip down
Memory Lane
"Comin' outta Queensbridge" 
Let me take a trip down memory lane" 
"Comin' outta Queensbridge" 
Remember lookin' out my window pane
"Comin' outta Queensbridge" 
"Now let us take a trip down memory lane" 
"Comin' outta Queensbridge" 
Let me take a trip down memory lane
Comin' out of Queensbridge
