    Yo, all I need is one mic, one beat, one stage
    One ***** front, my face on the front page
    Only if I had one gun, one girl and one crib
    One god to show me how to do things his son did
    Pure, like a cup of virgin blood; mixed with
    151, one sip'll make a ***** flip
    Writing names on my hollow tips, plotting ****
    Mad violence who I'm gon' body, this hood politics
    Acknowledge it, leave bodies chopped in garbage's
    Seeds watch us, grow up and try to follow us
    Police watch us {*siren*} roll up and try knocking us
    One knee I ducked, could it be my time is up
    But my luck, I got up, the cop shot again
    Bus stop glass bursts, a fiend drops his Heineken
    Ricocheting between the spots that I'm hiding in
    Blacking out as I shoot back, **** getting hit! {*more sirens*}
    This is my hood I'ma rep, to the death of it
    'til everybody come home, little *****s is grown
    Hoodrats, don't abortion your womb, we need more warriors soon
    Sip from the star sun and the moon
    In this life of police chases street sweepers and coppers
    Stick-up kids with no conscience, leaving victims with doctors
    If you really think you ready to die, with nines out
    This is what nas is bout, ***** the time is now!

    Yo, all I need is one mic,
    All I need is one mic, that's all I need
    All I need is one mic, all I need *****s
    All I need is one mic, yeah

    All I need is one blunt, one page, and one pen
    One prayer - tell god forgive for one sin
    Matter fact maybe more than one, look back
    At all the hatred against me, **** all of them
    Jesus died at age 33, there's thirty-three shots
    From twin glocks there's sixteen apiece, that's thirty-two
    Which means, one of my guns was holding 17
    Twenty-seven hit your crew, six went into you
    Everybody gotta die sometime; hope your funeral
    Never gets shot up, bullets tear through the innocent
    Nothing is fair, *****s roll up, shooting from wheelchairs
    My heart is racing, tasting revenge in the air
    I let the **** slide for too many years, too many times
    Now I'm strapped with a couple of macs, too many nines
    If y'all *****s really wit me get busy load up the semis
    Do more than just hold it explode the clip until you empty
    There's nothing in our way, they bust, we bust, they rust, we rust
    Led flyin, feel it? I feel it in my gut
    That we take these *****es to war, lie 'em down
    Cause we stronger now my ***** the time is now!!

    All I need is one mic, that's all I need, that's all I need
    All I need is one mic, there's nothing else in the world
    All I need is one mic, that's all a ***** need to do his thing why'know
    All I need is one mic,

    {*starting loud this time, getting quieter*}
    All I need is one life, one try, one breath I'm one man
    What I stand for speaks for itself, they don't understand
    Or want to see me on top, too egotistical
    Talking all that slick ****, the same way these *****es do
    Wonder what my secrets is, *****s'll move on you
    Only if they know, what your weakness is I have none
    Too late to grab guns I'm blasting cause I'm a cool *****
    Thought I wouldn't have that *** done? fooled you *****s
    What you call a infinite brawl, eternal souls clashing
    War gets deep, some beef is everlasting
    Complete with thick scars, brothers knifing each other
    Up in prison yards, drama, where does it start?
    You know the block was ill as a youngster
    Every night it was like a, cop would get killed body found in the dumpster
    For real a hustler, purchased my range, *****s throwing dirt on my name
    Jealous cause fiends got they work and complain
    *****es left me cause they thought I was finished
    Should of knew she wasn't true she came to me when her man caught a sentence
    Diamonds are blinding, I never make the same mistakes
    Moving with a change of pace, lighter load, see now the king is straight
    Swelling my melon cause none of these *****s real
    Heard he was, telling police, how can a kingpin squeal?
    This is crazy, I'm on the right track I'm finally found
    You need some soul searching, the time is now

    All I need is one mic, yeah, yeah yeah yeah
    All I need is one mic, that's all I ever needed in this world, **** cash
    All I need is one mic, **** the cars, the jewelry
    All I need is one mic, to spread my voice to the whole world
