Im stayin like stayin is played out B. sendin shivers from ground floor to balconies.

Balance the weights like flexin the pouch B. tight rope walk or a flea wit the scratch me.

Beats in the backseat thump for the cash creep. Creep for the long leap. Leap for the car seat. That aint me. Niggas created the babies. Now they raise G from the womb to a safety.

Playin the school yard keepin it crazy. Crazy for more war. Deployin the state key. Dreamin is angry i walk wit a knife B. Talk wit a twist tongue dont stutter im calm G.

Tongue is too big for the mouth its bubbly. Arroused to cuddle G now legs gone swaddle me. Destroy the mid section like we beat it with the weapon. Teachin niggas the flow dont get it son take a lesson.

I take charge in. Pencilin bars in. Mentals to coffin. Spittin it often. I drift out like mic phones fade out man.

U played out damn. Like a Krylon spray can. Its over soldier gettin older bolder. Fuck niggas up son hiphop is the culture. Scavenge like a vulture. U rhyme? Hell no sir eat the flaps off a cobra stick my dick in a nova.

Funny rhymes spittin them dummy lines. Crumby pie. Dutch apples or lemon rinds spittin the sour lines.

Dreamin of mines keep a nigga sharp on a dime. Speedin through time. Diesel in coupes neck in the noose. Pop the fruit juice. Sip til i boost. Im livin proof of bustin through struggles u go through. Hold 2 aim 3 hit 4 is the goal duke.

I scold u rock the dunce im packin a punch. Verbal seminar leave u stuck in a crunch. Gourmet Serve the vermon they lunch they grow bigger.

Repetitious cycle i be the bigger nigga. More vigor my nigga we never quitters. Keep climb like cease time for the beginners. Fucker the never enders. Never deliver a temper. see me smiles cut u down when no one enters.
