"Raisin' the Stakes" as written by Thomas Charles Findlay, Jonathan Leroy White, Delano O. Ogbourne and Andy Cato....
We started from hooligans
With brothers that shoot at jobs
Take it back around the way
Trying to build a future form
Our peoples are still lost
Get through no matter cause
We run it out of town
But you still wanna floss
Not because you getting money
Don't mean you better off
Can't join that late nights
Now take that Gucci sweater off

Too heavy for rap
Have to take a slight measure off
'spin that George broth back
You in that white colored cloth

Like Oliver North
My fate detected
My feelings is forced
Bullets get ejected
Mothers scream into ours
I've been through the force
Sauteed rappers with sauce
And mix them up with tofu
And no beef of course
When I say give me some room
And I mean a loft

Big bitchin' too fast scenery from the boys
Greenery live with the torch
A bad piece hitting New York
You can't listen if you know that you're soft

Jump on the stage
Chain rattlin'
The lance is street hagglin'
Underground scriptures thrown at you like a javelin
Tone of my voice unravelin'

They fall in about as quick as you know time is travelin'
Can't you imagine that you see me every day on the streets
From crown heights to castle
In the comfort castle back into my own speech

Mozambique
The time in Cologne
That flavors have flown
Earn a few shillings then I'm heading back home

Setting the tone
And raising the stakes
And rhyming the breaks
High school flows giving rappers the shakes

On the corner posted up
Henessy Styrofoam cups
Man we still living it's surprising like what

Bring on the skeptics
Let them know ten years fully vested
Been down like Amadeus blend the eclectic

Respected like the full pound
It's like Horatio girl you gotta love the way it's going down
Raising the stakes
And rhyming the breaks
