  • Envisioning the hereafter listening to Steve Wonder
    On a Quest for Love like the Proceed drummer
    I strike like lightning and don't need thunder
    Inhale imagination and breathe wonder
    That's your lady I used to run up in her and G weed from her
    It's a cold world and *****s need summer
    At times my going forward seems like retreat
    As I rewrite rhyme after rhyme and throw away beats
    Growing into my britches, outgrowing the streets
    There's a thin line between war and peace, whores and jeeps
    Ignore MC's like beeps, scribbling freedom on pages
    My third eye is like pink eye, seeming contagious
    Redeeming the ancients with ace this rhyme jargon
    I feel Mexican, hip hop is my garden
    Don't give a **** where you charting, certain **** I can't honor
    It ain't that you selling, it's your karma
    Rappers I monitor like a chaperon, you large and haven't grown
    Poetically perform fly-bys, another rapper gone
    The stage becomes a catacomb, I rap like a mummy
    Not for the money, I could have sampled Diana Ross a long time ago
    My mind of flow is like motor key 20
    Youngblood said he had dimes, I prayed that he see twenty
    Hollering at the brothers, either you goin' be a thug or a man
    Flip drugs and get land, I can see my man Rashad
    As he described how the bucks hit him
    And said slugs was still stuck in him, when it rained, it ****ed wit him
    This bucket interrupt wisdom and asked when my album was coming
    I said it's here
    It's here(echoed)
