"I Come Prepared" as written by Damian Robert Nesta Marley, Keinan Abdi Warsame, Gerald John David Eaton and Brian West....
Set to high
No callin' the rerevulationary youths
Dam Marley alongside k'naan
Gunpowder philosopher what some boy feel like
Peppop huh
I made the list this year
I'm on a roll
You aint no east African rock and roll
You don't know what time it is like your clock is old
You ain't know y'all packin' like the block is sold
How could it be to the deep and darkest of zero
To become the king of new york like a negro
And he aint even from new york that's what's weird yo
But he's from they repetatattapatatta
So come now don't you try to play the hero
Around here we have pirates with trapedos
Alongside all the warlords and beardos
In the city the people blacker than tuxedos
Baby girl let me get all up in your earlow
And if you shut me down you can kill my ego
Which is my enemy makes you my amigo
So either way you and I are button and needles
And they say I might become because of beetle
But I don't let it all come it all to my head and feed y'all
And I got more street cred then lego but just in case we keep a big deseagle

    General CommentThis song humorously shows off his street cred. Most of it is self explanitory, but some lines have cool allusions, like the clocks. The Swahili clock starts with 12 at 9, and works that way. Swahili clocks must be used in Somalia too. I love this song. K'naan is amazing.
