    The Maestro
    Fresh Wes
    The symphony
    Is in full effect

    [Maestro Fresh Wes]
    Let your backbone slide
    Let it slip, let the rhythm rip
    While my lyrics leave my lips
    Ladies and gentleman kids of all ages
    Watch a brother roamin' on stages
    Name rings a bell from state to state
    Province to province till you can't escape
    It's radius a margin
    Bruisin' bargin'
    Blowin' away blockades and still chargin'
    Up the crowd while the introducer
    Says the name they get looser looser
    Maestro Maestro with magnitude
    That's longer than the lines of latitude
    Going tropic to tropic
    Topic to topic
    yo are you ready for the drop (yeah)
    then drop it

    "Drop the needle" X6
    Bust it
    "Drop the needle"

    [Maestro Fresh Wes]
    The needle drops like a pistol pops
    Rocks the whole crowd, they can't stop
    Ladies wave and rave like slaves
    With this sound wave the guys misbehave
    I pave a road where the poems explode from
    Globe to globe, earlobe to earlobe
    Started at zero now they Xerox it
    Zipcode to zipcode I should ziplock it
    They won't stop the chumps they just chop it
    Chewin' chunks and chunks and then shop it
    On the homeplate, and I hate
    To hear my rhymes of a different rate
    I should ostracize the eyes of spies
    And destroy all districs for disguise
    In the form of the highest mind
    Of a hip-hop goliath rhymes
    Make it easy to cruise
    You get bruised if you're not enthused
    Silence is lost as the holocaust comes down
    When Wes goes off on the microphone
    Cord or cordless
    It don't matter cause I rock the fresh vest
    Hiroshima havoc and hurricane
    LTD is on the cut Maestro's the name
    The needle won't skip or the crowd will flip to frantic
    As I watch 'em drip
    D draws back the wax like a bow
    The bass is the arrow to break bow and arrow and
    Blast it, off like a rocket
    Again are you ready for the drop
    Then drop it
    Smoother than smooth can get plus tommorrow
    I'll be smoother
    Runnin' like silk
    Starin' at the mountains as melodies are built
    Like Everest I'm ever ready for the crossfade
    I have a vest never fest just cascade
    I'm a go on I'm a run and I'm a go on
    And tell two friends
    so on and so on (so on, so on)
    I ain't passive
    I lamp with the dope state massive
    Down with Scarborough
    Down with the jungle
    Down with Michee Mee
    Down with Rumble
    Down with Self Defense from flemo
    This was a hit before it was a demo
    Went to the studio with Pete
    And Anthony to lay down the beats
    And now, it's just too damn sweet
    I'm the voice in the Sonys walking down the street
    Drop it


    [Maestro Fresh Wes]
    (yo Maestro, tell 'em what you wear)
    "Drop the needle"
    I wear a black tuxedo
    Black tuxedo
    Black-black-black (oh my God)
    A black tuxedo with the cumberband damn
    Talk slang while the ladies hang
    Runnin' more hoes than clothes to a pimp
    Rhymes so rugged they'll make you limp
    Some MC's like to dance all night
    But I like the brothers who can rock the mic
    With bass and adrenaline big beats but then again
    Nowadays most rappers sound feminine
    Soft *echoed*
    They come off weak and they're so-so
    I'll be down to the pound and jump mofo
    Thousand pages of poems make the microphone prone to stand alone
    A Tallahasee lassie asked me
    (Wes, how can you rap so rough, but yet classy?)
    'Cause I'm smooth
    Making the people move
    It's like a cruise when ya take two two-twenty-twos
    That's a full forty four times more than a migraine
    Unexplained like an unsolved mind game
    The mastermind is defined as the Maestro
    Nitroglycerine sizzlin' hype so
    Comin' 'em on with a scent of napalm
    Droppin' the bomb as I raise my baton on
    And on the dawn
    Inject the venom in
    MC's like a late dose of heroin
    Suckers be stagerrin'
    I smoke the piece, D does the daggerrin'
    On the Technics, he'll tomohawk it
    Are you ready for the drop (yeah)
    Then drop it


    [Maestro Fresh Wes]
    United States United Kingdom
    The rhymes I bring them spread like syndromes
    T.O. mixed it, New York pressed it
    All these def hits you can't test this
    Rhyme still buggin' clock 'nuff duckets
    No wait yo hold up hold up
    Now fuck it
    One hour flight and I'm captain
    Like Jason I'ma take Manhattan
    Each ceremony and every seminar
    On LMR i'm hard, you're gonna get scarred
    I run a dead pool every rapper dread this
    Boys be pain at the naming of the dead list
    Or the red list the blood shed fest
    Fist to fist on the mic you're left headless
    They broke into the vault like Capone
    Didn't find jack so they all went home
    My vault could never be opened I locked it
    Punks be scopin' or hopin' to pop it
    '89 is mine you can't stop it
    Are you ready for the drop (yeah)
    Then drop it


    Now freak me
    "Are you ready"
