The year is 2004, people talk about war I had to hit the floor when the bombs began too pour Ten minutes ago I was mad cause my stomach was grumbling Now the whole world is crumbling I hear people scream across the street gettin' crushed This went on for twenty minutes then the whole world hushed I couldn't see shit but I could feel myself breathin' Damn I'm still kickin' but I'm just not believin' I give thanks to God then I'm off on my mission Ain't no stars in the sky so it ain't no wishin' I wonder, I wonder, I just can't under-stand Why, am I the last man? These crazy thoughts in my head won't stop Where's my moms and my pops and what about hip-hop I'm pickin' up things that could be of use to me Too build a makeshift crib where Hollywood used to be And it ain't no forties, it ain't no blunts I ain't had no ass in five years and eight months Five more years pass, and I still survive And I'm through with wonderin' who's still alive Until one day I'm just walkin' along And I hear this kid singin' a hip-hop song He said, "That's the way it is, and it's like that" I said, "Yo kid c'mere, where you learn that song at?" He said, "My daddy taught me about the hip-hop game I'm eight years old and Rakim is my name" He said, "Yo I'll take you to him, come follow me; but first you gotta prove that you can MC" So I cleared my throat got in a b-boy stance and I ran through a rhyme that made him piss in his pants With tears in his eyes, he grabbed me by the hand And then we ran, ten miles across the sand He took me to the spot, dig deep underground Where I can hear the sound of the big bass pound I wasn't really sure, but I swore we smelled blunt smoke No joke loc, well can I get a toke? He took me to his pops and he handed me a spliff And out behind the wall came Tash and E-Swift They took me to a freestyle session it was on I knew hip-hop would never be gone Five hundred hip-hop deep Yo we cool in 2014, Alkaholiks still rulin' It's gonna live forever This goes out to the P-Town, LBNT KnowhatI'msayin? Check it out Hip-hop don't stop Alkaholiks Check it out
