Mmm hmm
Okay, okay
Yeah
Y'all thought I lost it

In no fashion have I lost my passion for the pen
It's just that lately life has been a lost less inspirin'
To tell you the truth, trials and tribulations is very tirin'
I gotta play a little game of gimmick and gunfirin'

I'm not aspirin to be any lower or higher than
I get equal as in to eye to eye again
I'm the truth, I'm complicated, I'm all ready but try again
I've got to die once to never ever die again

And what I believe within, I engrave it within my skin
And one thing that I ain't is a saint without a sin
How could there be a now if there never was a then?
That is unbalanced just like the yang without a yen

I am distinguishably deeper as opposed to the paper-thin
And I breathe oxygen and you rhymin' 'bout rocks again
You stagnant, standing still enough to feel the world spin
I'm beginning to smell the end in the path of the blowing wind

Hopefully I'm fortunate enough to spend forever with a friend
I'm slow dancing with destiny every day until then
When I first got my big break I said that I would never bend
And discredit my character to keep up or contend

And my belief beat baseline secrete such a special blend
I am not like them at all and I cannot pretend
I am not like you at all and I cannot pretend

Damn
That shit was funky, ooh
You heard that nigga?

Damn
Shawty on a roll
Yeah man, c'mon

I can offer an extension or compare comprehension
I'm in a classroom of my own, I'm too far gone for competition
Yet I'm never obnoxious with my obvious ambition
Perfectly imperfect is my dimension's definition

I engage, my pen pierce the page, so that it bleeds my intention
With honorable mention of God's divine intervention
I'm incredible, I'm inevitable and there's no possible prevention
I'll holler scream my dream till I have your undivided attention

The powers that be will be beaten into submission
And you will be able to see my revolution on television
You'll get an aneurysm fuckin' around with my head on collision
With the power to get you dead and have the dead risen

I remember when my development was arrested
I was doin' time in my mind, misguided and misdirected
I was sick, so sick, if I spoke to you, you'd be infected
Then my conscience was cleared of all charges and I came out corrected

Reinvented, refined, replenished and well-rested
On a mission for a medium to manifest the thoughts I collected
After that everything I breathed upon, I blessed it
I committed crimes of passion and my soul was suspected

But it was thrown out of court because of course the Creator and I connected
He told me to, "fear not for thou art protected.
Your life is being requested and you are being tested.
So make every attempt you can to expect the unexpected."

Mmm, mmm, mmm
Boy that Lo boy

Damn
Oh Lord
Cee-Lo why you do it like that?
You ain't have to busti'n all like that, man
Makin' these li'l rappers feel like they can't rap

Damn
I got some more, I got some more if you want some

I am internally evolving entirely extensive
Eclectic expression eloquently, instantly innovative
Courageously creative, I'm driven
This God given gift it comes naturally to the native

Not a need for the dramatics or the systematic
Simplicities, strictly science and mathematics
The mastermind of the mighty mystical and magical moves
And metaphors manifests masterpieces

Thoroughly fury through the inner mind's eye
Establishes this thesis of these innermost insightful
Intriguing interpretations of extreme intelligence
My common sense is no coincidence

Caution: competitors approach carefully, I'm able to see
Rare ranges of distance, I expect respect
There's no tolerance for negligence, never, you'll forever
Feel the wrath of the pure and powerful poetry, permanently

Pre-meditative, political, critical, compellin', story-tellin'
Defining desire, fate feelin' the fire
Brilliant pro-blackness, philosophical, psychological
Willingly waging warfare

Withstandin', commandin', demandin'
The listening ear to hear without forcin'
Instead endorsin' education, equality, not hate
Just revolution of the mind state

Not mere words but emotions
Which is essential, influential provin' my people's potential
Militance, innocence, insight, listen to God, then write
Since my birth date I been tight
Shit

Damn
Now I don't want never hear nobody else say a goddamn nigga from the South can't rhyme
Never

Damn
Hehehe...Now can I do my shit?
