[Chorus: T-Bird] Cuz they don't want me to shine They know I'm fly and they don't want me to shine They hating on me, and they don't want me to shine They know I'm fly and they don't want me to shine They hating on me
[Kay Yo] Aiyo, it's my life, why they trying to take my life Trying to be a good dude, it's these streets that's trife Tell them officers to back up off me Been stalking 'em, since that Impala saw me Shit, just trying to pull up to the rib Sirens been wilding, what these kids done did Another body walked around, get chalked around People hawk around, latest talk in town Block to block like Monopoly Them bad apples to the core, rotten seeds It's been time to teach the youth, preach the truth Straight positive, negative get the boot I'm on my prison, know they father was the shit Now inhale and exhale, I'm heavy when I spit Got the grip like rubber handles, hard to handle Cuz man can do, worn out and got a rubberband you I'm that new doc, new shots, new block, new money, what?
[Fes Taylor] Ain't nothing better than new gwop, nigga Yo, from New York to Pittsburgh, the way I snitch words Fiip birds like skateboards, hitting the curbs Shit I osberve, more than I preserve I sat patiently just waiting my turn I'm the perfect representation from Staten Island My struggle, my hunger, maturity grew since I was younger Slumber party, yeah, they slept on niggas Til I, pump the shotty, when they crept on niggas If he, block the right jab, the left on niggas And if a fight turn to gunplay, we teflon niggas The south run the hip hop? What you expect, damn I guess Def Jam got the ears of a deaf man Put your career in the hands of a next man New York my birthplace, kinda like Bethelehem I'm the game saviorm and I leave my signature On your face with a straight razor, nigga You ain't major, you a minor league player Need I say more niggas?
[T-Bird] You can tell if a man's real if you look in they eyes I can see them haters hating from the look in they eyes An underground nigga, now I'm just looking to rise This is what hip hop lacks, I\"m just here to provide If 50 shots'll subtract, Sean Bell be alive If hip hop was dead, I'm the air that can keep it alive That nigga said he wasn't a cop, when they asked him, he lied This is just some shit on my mind, I think about when I'm high I'm naturally fly, my swagger is catching your eye Nobody got these Jordans I got, I'm exclusively fly This is for all my hustlers hustling, dog, stay on your grind Came from the bottom, but now I'm at the top of the line I'm tired of dudes that can't properly rhyme, that's why I constantly blind And show these niggas they ain't fucking with mine My life is more than a rap song, I got kids So knowledge to them I pass on, I'm hoping they blast on
[Flip] It's a matter of time, so I see no need to hold my breath Don't test on the strength that ya'll don't know my stress I don't rest, so there's way you can slow my steps I got a team, I be working on my solo flex At 16, I was spitting over old cassettes Microphones made out of headphones and broken decks So broke, I was always calling home collect I rock no soles, plus I got no respect Nearly blessed, always seem to keep a soul impress Now he equal, but we leaders in our respects I can remembe when I started this, my sole intent Was to release all of the anger, that my soul has pent Cuz I was never meant to make it, I was so just spent Til I stepped into the game and left a sole imprint Burning incent, flipping, spitting since an infant Hard not to believe me, I can be pretty convincing
