Great Expectations
On my committee unified relations
We rebel our rhythm through tribulations
& treble & bass the situation with dedication

It took ten years to pressure cook up my fears
Now my front line rhymes movin up from the rear
My dream slash career appear ever so clear
Now I'm able to touch smell see speak & hear
My fans cheer, our time is finally there
The past done brought the present cause the future is near
Anticipation magnify my motivation
Direct my energy to touch nations
Been entertainin since niggas was really banging
Dancing at the old folk party pancaking
I've been waiting for my time to shine
From catholic school to John Muir Jr. High
From Manuel Arts High to rocking at the Good Life
We paid the price to keep it right & rip shit on the mic
Cause if you only knew what we been through the struggle & the pain to maintain & continue


Go get your tickets
Your seats, snacks & beverages
While we get wicked all in yo brains, cracks & crevices
Servicin bulletins to your critical puritans
Who be shoutin in my vicinity
Doubtin my capability
Expect no defeat
My whole fleet be scorchin
Peep of course
Yo vision blurs from heat distortion
Neat proportions
Better take precaution
While we shake the force
You fakes are lost in never flossin
The antidote for your mood
We sloppy dope and I'm hopin that what I wrote get you open
Like a fallopian tube
In my group we include brothers who are worthy
Rebels and DJ's from LA
I'm from CHI he from Jersey
Ever thirsty
Ever thirsty for success plus never vexed
Livin for Allah
Cause he blessed us with the talent to make Jurassic yo next guess
Rocking since the 84 fresh fest yes


My story starts in the NJ state
And gets deep like a movie
Bruce or Demi make
I moved to the land of sand and ill earthquakes
I didn't know this was the place I'd get my piece of the cake
Pardon piece of the pie u-n-i-t-y
Every Thursday night at the life
We kept it tight - that's right
That's where we dwelled and the rhythm rebelled
We a blast from the past like old shotgun shells
Not no macho makes with raps about a beer
Our missions to persevere
So haters can play the rear
We toured the stratosphere from here to London square
You swear that you're prepared to dis what we have here
Indeed time ticks as rapid rhymes rip
Earth and time split in time to find its
Just another manic Monday and one day we'll shine too
So it's true when my crew say


Whether you love or hated
If its in or outdated
If I been overrated or maybe your most favorite
You expect me still to write my verse on time
And I expect you not to front when you hear my rhyme
Don't expect me to smile, cause it's good in taste
I know cats that's known to snake
Smilin in my face
And don't expect & try to guess if I'm mad or not
Or if I'm cold or hot
You would know if not
Don't expect me to come & just bite my tongue
It's kinda hard to forget what some brothers have done
But my mother always said you forgive & forget
And expect that most promises won't be kept
I guess I gave credit where it wasn't deserved
Some brothas musta preferred not to keep their work
The bigger the burden
The bigger the uncertain
No explanation for my creation
Great expectation
