  • [Intro: Tech N9ne]
    The sadness gets deeper, and now my body's growing weaker
    To EMJ this is dedicated; through this, you'll never belated, bro

    [Verse 1: Tech N9ne]
    I told him, I ain't know you rap nigga, you cold blooded
    The way he busted his flow on stage wasn't slow was it
    My nigga was flippin', he grabbed the mic and was rippin'
    Until some idiots was trippin' and then I heard bullets whistling
    Then I sang 'em, I just want to celebrate, he laughed
    Cause said he's "writing a song called Reno 911 straight on they ass"
    Far as words go, it's crazy them were the last I heard
    EMJ on this emotional musical journey

    [Hook: Krizz Kaliko]
    Come ride with me, it's so sad to see, still ride with me
    So join me, let me share with this world as I live out the dreams
    We won't be gone for long, I promise you won't be alone
    If you lose me, I'm writing the words of this song
    My man Michael Jones, on this emotional musical journey

    (Yo, this is OG Muggs, wanna shout out to my man EMJ
    God took you away, it was too soon man
    You're up there with the angles looking down
    And watching our world right now brother
    We love you, we miss you, we'll never forget you EMJ
    Rest in peace brother)

    [Verse 2: Irv Da Phenom]
    That was my nigga
    In the bunk right across from mine
    Cracking them jokes like all the time
    Hoppin' on stage with him every night
    And why niggas
    Would ever wanna take somebody's life
    Who was living it like a shining light
    Man all the homie ever did was smile
    I still don't understand it, don't think I ever will
    Why I couldn't have been the bitch nigga
    That god had let get killed
    Instead he took EMJ away, it's safe to say
    I'll see your face again someday, at pearly gates
    But I hold you in my heart until

    [Verse 3: Kutt Calhoun]
    At times I'm like
    Yo EMJ, where you been?
    I know you lookin' down on me like
    "Here I am, Kutty!
    And I ain't wanting for nothin' homie
    No, mourning do nothin' for me
    Your love is enough in store in its glory
    Or what, so pour me a drink
    We can cheer and toast, giving thanks to why
    You didn't lose a partner, you gained a gangsta for life
    In your heart I exist, but through music I'm able to live
    I see the way you floss me all on your wrist
    And that's what's up, man"


    (On my highest day my nigga, you was there
    Now I'm on my lowest day, cause you're not here
    I miss you my nigga, love you EMJ)

    [Verse 4: Bernz]
    I seen a cruel bitch, met her in Reno Nevada
    She'll have you living your dreams and take 'em all with no problem
    In dark alley ways, where devils wait for the shootout
    At someone who was special, I told my family about him
    I saw his first tour, he told me Tech was his hero
    And watched him from the crowd, to then go rock the same theaters
    Step out of bounds and rounds can fly, behind casinos
    On the night I never gambled and still lost it all in Reno

    [Verse 5: Wrekonize]
    If I only had 8 bars, to come and deliver to you in the graveyard
    I'd say god is shitty for even releasing you behind the 8-ball
    The pain's hard, I know you got kiddies to carry your name on
    But I'm praying for 'em, so they don't end up just singing the same song
    I'm hearing it in my sleep, I'm hearing it in the head
    There's whispers on the beat, screaming EMJ where you been
    I promise you everyone out here shed tears, until he remembers
    High powered mayhem, EMJ, Mayday's 7th member

    [Verse 6: Stevie Stone]
    Remember like it was yesterday, show up in Reno
    Off of the bus and to off a Bourbon then we hit the Casino
    And then we, we did the show an we was only
    It was all that crying and you and Rock was on that homie
    Never should have left you lonely, you took six and survived it
    Talked to you a couple days ago, still riding
    No one never thought there was complications rising
    A blood clot inside him, EMJ died I'm like

    (EMJ, it's Cross-Eyed Joe man, we all fucking miss you bro)
    (EMJ, what can I say man, rest in paradise
    Rest in paradise pimpin, we love you)

    [Verse 7: Jay Rock]
    Michael Jones, I miss you my nigga
    EMJ, still tryna cope with this
    Still can't believe that you gone and I know I gots to be strong
    Revenge is mine said the lord, so we gotta let him take control
    But lord knows that I wanna grab the gat
    Cock back and land a blow and watch heads roll
    You was a talented man, I watched you gravitate fans
    Shouted out where you been, people was all in a trance
    Then we step on stage, you'd say "You killin 'em, Rock"
    Then I'd say "You killin 'em, MJ," then you say "Let's put on for Watts"
    You strong as an ox, in the bed just laying with shots
    Laughing and jokin', meanwhile I'm going through emotions
    Then you tell me Jay Rock, you gotta keep goin' on daddio
    Your album about to drop, plus you can't be slacking bro
    Yeah fo' sho' my nigga, I know this a minor set back
    But you told me keep killin' 'em, you gon' be alright
    I'mma be back, no time bet that, then I got that phone call
    It was bad news at its best and it hurt me
    That I lost my friend on this emotional musical journey

    [Verse 8: Magnum PI]
    Hold up roll up a Swisher, light up and paint a picture
    Only if painted different, I would have been right there with you
    So instead of cryin', I rejoice and pour out some liquor
    Henny straight or mix it with lemonade, feel like I should be ashamed
    I had to look you mama dead in the face
    She told me everything was gon' be okay
    You told me if anything you should be on your way home any day
    Soon as we all relaxin' the phone rang, heard her sayin'
    I'm goin' crazy, it's crazy, I'm thinkin' maybe just maybe
    I'm misunderstandin' what your lady was sayin'
    Naw-naw, you can't be serious, stop your talkin' delirious
    Got my mom on the phone, you already know where his spirit went
    So I drink that Hen 'til there no more left, right that wrong no it don't go left
    Write this song try not stress, gotta be strong yet fight to death
    As far as visions go that's that was last way that I saw
    EMJ on this emotional musical journey
