CHORUS:
concentration - concentration when you rhyme
dedication - dedication genuine
be patient and scrutinize your ev'ry line
there's no time to waste - life's a beach and then you dive

I just can't understand these clowns standing 'round
who don't know baggy pants come from hand-me-downs
you just can't be out there using sampled sounds
without the 101 - a bunch of pampered clowns

you getting trampled now - beating handed out
just get your knowledge straight before you demand and shout:
"this shit can't be stopped", but your eardrums popped
when Pale spoke through the speakers and the bomb beat dropped

you know what? no way - you don't stop
still that kid from back in the day - all grown up
so, turn the track a bit down and then the microphone up
'cos this here mic device is about to blow up

even in a bathrobe and flip-flops I radiate hip-hop
that spine-tingling kind - 1988 hip-hop
goosebump style and sweat starts to drip-drop
best believe that's concentrated hip-hop


Soul is expression, Blues is a session
Jazz is impression - now, class is in session
I'm your substitute preacher for the rest of the lesson
entitled: "history of hip-hop" - ain't no second guessin'

"don't let him teach - I know this man has been aggressive"
sometimes I underline too much when I'm blasting a session
I always join debates when grass is in question
argumentating profusely I leave a lasting impression

such verbal skills are always attached with a blessing
gift of gab - all gravy - with a fantastic dressing
e-e-equalize my voice with sufficient compression
bottom-heavy mix - 230 gram 12" pressing

make it loud - that's a keeper
I am a loud speaker
80's, 90's, 2G - wearing fat laced sneakers
the groove is infectious, who's on the mix? Lexus
banging "do not sleep on this" courtesy of Johnny Texas


La Jura finds contraband - I ain't saying names
it's personal use only - no wholesale in aim
it's MC Pales formerly of troll-slaying fame
I learnt wordplay playing roleplaying games

everything changes but still stays in place
our perception of life deceives us in amazing ways
from the days of old all the way to present day
how do you sleep at nights and get thru busy days?
