"Can I Start This?" as written by Anthony Robert Depula and Timothy Wadell Grimes....
[Intro]
[Eric 'IQ' Gray] Wise, Culture man, I got one more track left, what's up?
[Culture Freedom] What's up man, what you wanna do?
[IQ] Huh?
[Culture] What you wanna DO?
[Tony D] Yo, man, IQ over here says, man, he want us to do one more chumpy, so you wanna kick somethin, or you wanna, you know, what's up?
[Wise Intelligent] Yo check, here go what we're gonna do. Since you've been makin all them funky new radical, butt naked booty stinkin' type a style a beats, we gonna let you get a taste. So you come on in the sound proof, and rock some of that rubbish you been writin
[Culture] Yo… I'm gonna rock a little somethin' too man, so um… get things right
[Wise] Word up
[IQ] Can I.. Can I start this?
[Wise] Word is bond you can start this!
[Culture] Do dat!

[Culture] Ahh like that! About to get dumb stupid, word up!
[Culture] Yo, what's goin on Q man? Yo… Yeah, shut that door man, yo

[Wise] Ayo Culture Freedom! It's about time you showed some loyalty to this too!
[Culture] Word up! I'm goin' do that!

[Tony D] Yo well check this out, yo yo.. Take some of that echo out and I'm gonna kick it like this

[Verse 1 - Tony D]
Yo Harvee! [Who?] Harvee Wallbanger!
Met [Who? Who?] Mrs Coathanger
In the compartment of their apartment
Down with the upside down [???] department
So you figure it
But please don't be a bigot
Make like a wino, and swig it
Down your mouth your throat, your esophagus
I'm too smooth - so get offa this
Sucka. You can't withstand the momentum
Take em one a day, and a Centrum vitamin. Mr Weasel
My mike's like a painting, mike stand's an easel
You go Rambo, I go Predator
Competitor, editor, creditor, and much better than a
Quacker. Rapper. Who thinks he's like Dapper
Dan like a seal I keep em clapping his hands
Balancing, a ball on his nose
And goin' "Ert ert ert!" and striking a pose
For the camera. But you say "How?"
I say are you an Indian? "Who?" - now you're an owl
Hooting. Like a bird always tooting
Polluting, the atmosphere continually tooting and hooting and looting
Meanwhile I go freestyle
Hear the funky rap with PRT on Profile
I'm running out of breath, it's time for Tone to pass it
Huh-hua! Yo Wise, please gas it

[Verse 2 - Wise Intelligent]
Once again, yes my friend, [???] tends to build up my empire
Poor Righteous Teachers, teachers
Dem said Poor Righteous Triers
Yeah now that we succeeding they must seat that weak suggestion
Cause now they even students to the Teachers and the lesson
No guessing, oh how I love to bomb a weak hypothesis
Listen cause I'm dropping this
P-R-T posse rocking this
Smooth with the roughness, this sexy style, yet
How can I sink into the crescent of the soul? check
Stummer's comin' [nope no sense?], step the rhythm
There goes P-R-T posse gone, cannot keep up with 'em
They rocked and they rolled
Rolled meaning stepped
Back upon divine land that's the projects that they rep
Sometimes the teachers teachers show and tell the tribe a-yo let's go
Pack up the equipment get me back into the ghetto

[Wise] Yo um, Culture Freedom, I think it's about that time you showed and proved to yourself - do that!
[Culture Freedom] I'm gonna do a little somethin like this --

[Verse 3 - Culture Freedom]
[Hidden in the ??]
Bomb but don't panic
I'm the sole controller, revolving nine planets
Yes, I'm manifesting, a blessing from the heavens
Peace, to all the queens, submitting to the seven
I'm the asiatic, based on mathematic
You're the jive junkie, sack crack fanatic
Write a knowledge knowledge, wisdom be purified
My wisdom will receive, reflect and amplify
[Banish?] understanding that makes it understood, yo
I'm Culture Freedom - now ain't that good?
I use the power of refinement to serve the justice
I dare you snakes, to ever try to touch this
I deal equal, that's equality
Freezing your domes, giving no apology
Seven and a half, you know that's God
Tell em, truth is food, word is bond
I build and destroy as the earth keeps [probing?]
Surrounded by filth but protected with clothing
Shelter's where I store my knowledge to born
Love is in the cypher, so I go on
Peace!
It's for the cause that I'm rappin this
Love brings peace, and peace brings happiness
Total satisfaction, from one's own actions
If not? Then there's a fatal reaction
You call it static in the attic the static will be dynamic
You say you're satisfied? Well I'm flattered
At the end of this verse, you know who rules
I have my mathematic divine with twelve jewels
And there [??? drop down?] the brothers and the others that lack
Yo um, here comes the beat, but I'll be back

[Wise] Word!

[Outro]
[Culture] Crash-mashin the set, you know what I'm sayin? CF is in full effect; Poor Righteous Teachers, Tony D, and the PRT Posse, gettin' stupid, dumb, retarded, and all that, you know what I'm sayin?
[IQ] IQ, North Side Productions
[Culture] gettin Radically - um - dep, dep-a-dep-a-depa-deba-doh
[Wise] I'd like to say peace to all the gods of the universe
[Tony D] Yo I'd like to give a special thanks to PRT for giving me the opportunity to produce their album
[Culture] And my boy Shaheed, know what I'm sayin, rockin that funky new radical hip hop scratchin that no one else can be catchin cuts; I'd like to say peace you know what I'm sayin? And we in this
[Wise] That was a positive universal greeting! We in this!
[Culture] Ay, kick em some of that flow, dope, fly gear… you know what I'm saying? And we outta here
