[Zion I] 
Yo checkout the superb tech 
Cashin' checks through dialect 
Doper than the gold around your neck 
This is my manuscript to spit lyrics like fat spliffs 
I show the whole damn world my gift 
For Paris I'm speakin' upon 
Powerful just like a pod 
Positioned in the proper placement 
Focus like militant deep as concentrational caverns 
Devising secret plans on spitting atoms 
I verbalize 
Lust to bust 
Just as dangerous 
As watching Mt. Vesuvius erupt 
Corrupt a data disk 
From the super soul powered slums 
I-N-I, Planet Asia make it bump, bump 
I'm deep off in the trunk 
SWATS call it crunk 
The 15 inch woofers make the beat go thump 
I dump clips of pros ? goes 
The chillin' is killin' with the illest type flows 

[Hook] 
"Rap legends presidents felt" -> Nas 'Nas is Like' 
"Put us together" -> Mobb Deep 'Survival of the Fittest' 
"The outcome is Critical" -> GZA/Genius 
"Set it off" -> Jeru The Damaja 'Mental Stamina' 

[Zion I] 
Yo, vocally blessed to beat you into submission 
I paddle units which protrude from the underside of trains 
Do not touch I'm high voltage 
Like the third electric 
Emergency phones needed in every tunnel for the murder method 
You're dealing with the armed forces 
We wave warm torches 
Through the trenches of the onslaughtness 
? up next 
I'm anticipated post my plan is to stay behind my every line stated 
Deluxe, eon fluctuates what I pronunciate 
Cold verses be lookin' out but y'all people got months to wait 
Life as it is baby, Zion I got me flyin' high 
My mind's inside music symbolic to I-N-I 
This ain't the Sci-Fi Channel 
We true and living legends of this beat freak committee 
Clash Of the Titans through the vinyl 
When we splash the Atlas with the rules of the game 
We out the old school and came to drop a jewel on your brain 

[Hook] 

[Planet Asia] 
My brother hit me on the game 
Said that we original man 
And we manifested here to spit slang 
I thought a minute, and let it sink 
Deep like the Titanic 
We wider than the ocean of Atlantic 
Pacifical mythical styles 
In the west it's gettin' wild 
I'm chillin' like the Sphinx upon the Nile 
Reverberating 
Why is you hatin' hip hop we creatin? 
Across the desert sands we be bakin' 
My melanin 
The key to lock rock spots and flocks 
Walk the rugged avenue with my be-Boy bop 
It's evolution toss a pebble at the devil and smile 
I'm rebellion while propelling freestyles 

[Zion I] 
From the bottom to the top I made a lot of em drop 
Hip hop's the lifestyle of urban civilians and even cops 
No it don't stop 
Once again another classic fantastic rap shit 
That'll make y'all MCs wanna practice 
How to lock shit down like Daddy ? 
I blaze mics for days 
Hit the page light stage and burn Sage 
Then engage 
This ain't a faze or some played out gimmick 
That's worth to ? for the fact 
That most of y'all cat's is timid, vivid 
Views of the do and don't don't apply, 
To the uncompromising Planet Asia, Zion I 
Worldwide renown 
Zones of the chosen few 
Verbal rhymes I cipher shots to leave holes in you 

[Hook]
