lyrics

One mic, tryna double up
third eye sight three times the trouble – fuck
on ya fifth drink, im on my sixth double cupped
ya girl got cups im holding her bubble bra
quadruple containers maintaining my liquid flow
the beat back me up never lookin back cuz I know
two more shots you end up on the floor
two more shots im on stage at a show
street never had me only pencils and pens
sharp and inked up like tats on my skin
Cannatella on the beat – bond been like kin
two mid city kids been killin since 2010
never been a house slave steady in the field
I ain pickin shit though – you know how I feel
middle finger to the history if you know whats real
middle finger to the industry – fuck a major deal
aint tryna die young when living is too fast
doin nothing new my dude that’s too bad
talkin double negative grammar gotta stay relevant
working with every benefit making moves has
so high up fighter pilots aint fly
zero gravity theonly way I recline
too high to reach im a star in the sky
kinda like a constellation though I ain’t hard to find

Burn It down in your city, in your town
setting speakers on fire with the underground sound (4x)

Fishbone fan since I was spoonfed
got an attitude – bad brains in my head
that’s black rock reference your ignorance irrelevant
burn ya down to sediment always been my sentiment
fresh like wyclef runnin for Haitian president
mos definite now a chopper city resident
do this for my fam in the bed stuy regiment
C I A with no I you lack my intelligence
then you lose the Agency, now your not a reference
I’ll get play on Central stations and stay independent and uh
P.S.A. to all rap artists
the aim is to take your name off all the charts
we don’t play, game over when we start it
fine point sharpies (make) permanent marks yea
we been around, bullets in the chambers
swing the hammer back, point blank to the aim
put your wallet back, let go of the chain
gimme the microphone don’t ever rap again
don’t even practice I sit back and laugh
head phones steady rock that mathematics
been above average, you could never match this
spit metaphorever since I started artifactin
been above average, you could never match this
spit metaphorever since I started artifactin and we

Burn It down in your city, in your town
setting speakers on fire with the underground sound (8x)
