  • Follow me, everybody spread around, I want you all to hear this
    Join me, sit down, sit down
    I wanna tell you 'bout something, I got story or something
    Listen

    I knew this girl named Roulette-lette-lette
    The coolest woman I ever met, met, met
    I never tried to hook it up, up
    But I used to fantasize about the guts
    Fuck, bust nuts, rush
    Grab the gold and carry it in your mouth
    But I'm a try to hold the microphone and turn the party out
    And if it's the type of crowd that doesn't like to shout, fuck it
    I'll give 'em something to chew on, something to talk about
    Snap, crackle pop rock, never had a sawed-off
    Don't never wanna blow up, 'cause I never wanna fall off
    Adjacent to that vacant lot, next to the weed spot
    Sits a headshop, beneath a tree watching peace talks
    So let me catch a round of applause
    So maybe I can persuade some lady out of her bra (come on baby)

    Ladies and gentlemen...
    We now ask that you give a warm Minnesota nice welcome to MC
    I've gotta be your man on the mic, you know...
    Ladies and gentlemen, give it up
    Put your hands together, put your hands...

    Cause if we can't do it together
    We'll do it apart
    Ain't no way we'll ever make it how it was at the start
    But that's a given
    Now within the distance of your vision measure the persistence
    How are you living?

    I'll smack the whack and sell 'em crack while I'm laying down my mack
    (I'm trying to tell you homeboy)
    I'll get sick on a trick, talking shit firm grip on my dick
    (Ayo bitch I got what you need bitch, yo, yo)
    I make moves and get loose wearing a camouflage goose
    (And that's juice, like what, what, what, what)
    Yes, yes, I never stress
    Make a mess on the mic sipping a Becks, wearing a vest
    'Cause well, you know
    It's that Rhyesayer with a razor, truck jewelry, Chuck Taylors
    (Yo man, pass that blunt kid, yo kid, kid)
    Tall sharp and handgun, paid a ransom for these pants dun
    So step off kid you're playing me too close

    If we can't do it together
    We'll do it apart
    Ain't no way we'll ever make it how it was at the start
    But that's a given
    Now within the distance of your vision measure your persistence
    How are you living?

    Killed all the thoughts about killing all the cops
    No longer get as pissed off when I have to jerk my dick off
    I just want a mic and a crowd and if that's asking for too much
    Fine, lemme just have that mic and I'll be alright (I'll be alright)
    Stuck, between a rock and the sky
    With an option to buy and I got lost in a lie
    Tossed them fakes out the door, I ain't your whore
    I make music, can you feel it?
    Cool, then I'm a make some more
    Yes, yes ya'll you are now rocking with the best of the mess hall
    In root to the basement, while Ant drives the vessel
    All apologies to those insulted
    By the repulsive vultures that fly loose when I'm seduced by the impulses
    (By the impulses)
    Defense mech in effect, protect the rep
    From all forms of public infliction
    But listen I love the ripping, so fuck the friction it takes focus off what's the mission
    (Yo tell 'em what's the mission)
    To be the man on the mic, to be the man on your mind
    To be the man that made you push rewind
    To be that mother fucker over there on that mic
    You know what that means?
    That means I can show you what I need you to see, see, see
    (See here, what you need to do is follow, follow us baby
    Before you can... what you need to do is see, see, see, see, see)

    If we can't do it together
    We'll do it apart
    Ain't no way we'll ever make it how it was at the start
    But that's a given
    Now within the distance of your vision measure your persistence
    How are you living?
    Measure your persistence
    How are you living?
    Measure your persistence
    Higher living
