[Verse One] Yo it was all a dream, me and my brothers shakim and rahkeem Up black crib puffin l's seeing ourselves on the screen Our pictures in a magazine, we up in a limousine In suede bally's, silk shirts and jeans with the Gucci seams I beat boxed and niggaz flow till we was dizzy My manager Mo, Chuck, Fresh, G-Money, Wil, Louie and Wizzy Those were my favorite days when I turn back the page And everyday we did a show, the staircase was the stage And yo the name of the group: it was "RAHSHASHA" Whoever thought that hip hop would make it this far At 16 we did our first real show at the miccio My mother believed in us, she shot our first video We would go to my uncle young's house every sunday He let us do our thang, we had a hot tape on monday I love them both for that, they always had my back They made me who I am today, I see that when I look back Red Hook day gave me the confidence to do what I do Mr. Gus, Stephen Moore, 9-2 Crash Crew RZA seen what it took the world time to see I dedicate this to y'all for inspiring me come on! [Chorus] Talk to me y'all aha! aha! it's Red Hook day y'all Talk to me y'all! [Verse Two] Hip-Hop is my religion son, music and fashion Since I was a lil nigga yo, I do this with passion It took me around the world from brazil to paris Even on channel 2 news with my man reggie harris Crime saga nominated soul train '96 Even though I do it son, I'm still a fan of this shit When "BDP" said didididadiday KRS dissed Marley Marl, Shan and Shante And Stetsasonic had the Brooklyn anthem We would rush a house party mob deep and vamp them I slammed the mic when I'm done and kicked a hole in the speaker When Rakim told Big Daddy Kane +Follow the Leader+ When Slick and Doug E. them said +La-Di-Da-Di+ When trench coats would hide the shottie to stick up the party We was forever on that Brooklyn bullshit My new projects posse was quick to pull shit And f*ck a fair one, you got ya head snuffed and stomped in Back when that nigga Tim Dog made +F*ck Compton+ +Hey Young World+ is my all time favorite Even now I still sing it every time when I play it I dedicate this to y'all for inspiring me And all my fans around the world whose admiring me I had the vision all my life son, I came a long way And now the whole world's invited I welcome y'all to Red Hook day! [Chorus] [Verse Three] My Uncle Cliff and Calvin Klein always knew I had the vision in mind And one day it'll be my time to shine Back in 1989 they bought me up to 105.9 They played my shit and it lit up the phone lines Ladies and gentlemen, you're about to see A past time hobby about to be Taken to the cinema screens and BET And be blazin ON WQHT and MTV Shit, I sacrificed my whole life for this Everyday I roll the dice and pray to Christ for this, for real! I sacrifice my whole life for this Everyday I roll the dice and pray to Christ for this Def Jam was always my favorite label Since the days I rocked "2 TONE" leather pants and a gold cable And +Krush Groove+ showed me dreams come true All a nigga need is passion to follow' 'em through I love Russell Simmons he inspire me to hustle and keep swimming And never give up the struggle, focus on winning This year I'ma do my thang, word to "RAH" who hovers me I'll love +Wu-Tang Forever+, cause the RZA discovered me [Chorus] Come on come on ha!
