Pow pow pow pow pow pow
Boom boom boom boom boom boom boom boom
I compose fight music like Lalo Schifrin
Me and Bruce Lee, not so different
Be like water with the flow you drippin'
Never catch Geo ego trippin'
Broke hustlers C-note pimpin'
But real rich fuckers will evict your building
Re-wrote history to trick your children
To thinkin' this ship is not sinking
This shit is not workin' and folks not workin'
Said, "Hold up" but it's not for certain
Got to hold on 'fore they drop those curtains
And they act like they did it but it's not on purpose
And they said we don't deserve it
I would rather be flawed to God than a soulless perfect
It's getting dark like the Mont Blanc ink in the pen
That I grip when I wrote these verses
Me vs. Me but the older version
And the collar's still blue and producer Persian
A new class like a renaissance merchant
Hurtin' you bastards you flirt with disaster,
Rollin' Rainier with the speakers blastin'
D. Black and them cats put in work with passion
I'll be the first to reverse the fashion
'cause the trend won't last but It might come back

And it's time to make the matter matter again
Show you how to make a camera with a pad and a pen
Two thousand and ten, a spectacular end, yes I'm back in the Six let the battle begin
And it's time to make the matter matter again
Show you how to make a camera with a pad and a pen
Two thousand and ten, a spectacular end, yes I'm back in the Six let the battle begin

There's no caliber like mine, survived a '45
The kind of Colt guy
Specifically designed to snuff my fine print inside a line
And in about a minute I'ma take what's mine
Came from a thick blood line of front-liners who cut fly
Stand tall covered all corners of the map
Oh, where them browns in the act
Make money, money wait a minute send it back
And leave just a little for the liquor and the lab
Hawaii to Seattle, B-Town was the gap
Slapped by the teacher for having that bad gram'
Still passed all of my tests with bad manners
It's not a question who rocked it the baddest
From 14th and Madison, nonchalant laughin' at you non-factors chattering
Thank you for speaking and keeping my name traveling
They say no comparison without being arrogant
A rare combination
I'm there like 3 Bloody Mary's in the mirror
I appear now, the new people listen here
Fear no bullets, hear no music
If I can't feel nothin' then I can't see through it
I can't do it, the conduit, rhyme fluid
Whether or not my mind's zooted
I'm not losing, assuming otherwise is foolish, huh
Boom boom boom boom boom boom boom pow boom boom pow boom boom boom pow

And it's time to make the matter matter again
Show you how to make a camera with a pad and a pen
Two thousand and ten, a spectacular end, yes I'm back in the Six let the battle begin
And it's time to make the matter matter again
Show you how to make a camera with a pad and a pen
Two thousand and ten, a spectacular end, yes I'm back in the Six let the battle begin
What up?

Boom boom boom boom boom boom boom pow boom boom pow boom boom boom pow

    General CommentLalo Schifrin is an Argentine composer of film/tv scores, including loads of Clint Eastwoods. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…). Chock full of references to cinema:

    "Me and Bruce Lee, not so different/Be like water with the flow you drippin'"
    Bruce Lee said, "Don't get set into one form, adapt it and build your own, and let it grow, be like water. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless – like water. Now you put water in a cup, it becomes the cup; You put water into a bottle it becomes the bottle; You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend."

    Anyway. There's more to the song, just noting how the song is a part of the larger album. Camera's, cinema. So on. . .
