  • "Underground intelligent hip hop development progression is our intent, ladies and gentlemen"

    They say possession is nine tenths
    Well we possess mind vents
    To filter the rhymes sent
    From deep down inside
    Hence the precision and timing
    Essential to rhyming
    If you wish to pierce the cerebral lining
    You see image is nothing
    Imagination is everything
    Is there anything you wear that's more important that what you think?
    I think not... as I b__b Aesop
    Cruise to Herbie Hancock and f___in' rock out with Snot
    You wanna look for me?
    I'll be in charity shops
    I ain't buyin' my shirts
    I'm buyin' my d___ pants and socks
    This s___'s inside of me
    I ain't riding the beat
    It's the beat that is riding me

    "Underground intelligent hip hop development progression is our intent, ladies and gentlemen"

    I ain't an alcoholic
    I just drink a lot
    And maybe I'm a genius
    Or maybe I just think a lot
    My intellect in retrospect compared to some...

    "Ay yo Pip you know that second verse was all straight garbage?"
    What you talkin' 'bout man it's not that bad... it was alright.
    "I know what I'm talkin' 'bout. Give these f___ers something new!"
    What am I supposed to do? What...?
    "Come on man"
    Alright man, how about this?

    I remember hearing Mos Def rhyme the alphabet
    I just sat there in silence
    As a sign of respect
    I knew what I had to do
    And that's what happened nest
    I rhymed the periodic table
    To stay one step ahead
    See in the periodic table
    Hydrogen is number one
    Cause hydrogen is what puts the shine in the sun
    Through nuclear fusion and when it's done
    It leaves element number two
    Helium... helium is the second lightest gas that there is
    So we use it in balloons we give to little kids
    Then there's lithium often used to treat mental problems
    Beryllium don't conduct electric currents, it stops them
    Borom can be used to make things harden
    And that smoke that's coming out of your exhaust; carbon
    Carbon is arguably the most important element
    And nitrogen in the air is almost eighty percent
    The rest of the air is mainly oxygen
    And fluorine is the lightest of the halogens
    OK, that's enough teaching
    I ain't trying to bore ya
    I'm just trying to be a good role model for ya
    Cause in my town I'm blessed with many role models
    So many that sometimes the mind just boggles
    See KRS is my teacher
    Slick Rick's my ruler
    Chuck D's my preach'
    I'm just a preschooler
    I've still got growing to do though
    I ain't trying to fool ya
    But compared to all the other kids in my class
    I'm much taller
    I'm much taller
