I’m a ground breaker listen to my baseline shake ya I’m a pace
maker so you can take a couple of beats you can take a minim rest to
catch your breath and all that’s left is to proceed with the earthquake
this is a mic check as the DJ cues up dubs on each deck my mind drifts
back in retrospect to my rehearsal and the ninety-nine mics I wrecked I
make studios look like war zones when they’re strewn with the shattered
shells of microphones I crack metal with my dulcet tones and my poetry
confounds all attempts by MC clones these MC clones will try cloning but
when I step up on the mic I’m owning my defense is full press I’m not
zoning I’m sharp like a samurai sake like a ronin I’m undertoning I used
to get teenage kicks but now I’m older and I’m still sounding sick and
I’m surrounded by MCs who got their arses kicked and I can guarantee
that none of them are half as quick I be still spitting I’m bringing the
beat until your head starts splitting the marks I’m hitting the bass I’m
pounding so make some noise and tell me how I’m sounding.
