One-two one-two in the place to be, yes indeed
Always smokin' that 'dro weed, we have dilated peoples!
Set to detonate
Uh-huh, sharp
Ha yes y'all
Watch out
What what uh
Uh, uh
Yeah, it's goin' down
That I, would like to say
We got tension in suspense, theme in variation
I'm after the gold, and after that the platinum
But I was told by my peeps play your cards right
That goes for bad reviews, good reviews (uh-huh)

Bird's eye, catch the rhythm in the words I use
Everybody plays the fool sometimes, the other side of the game is cruel
Born in the church where the pastor rules (why?)
And keep the pressure on that turns earth to jewels
How that sound?
How that sound?
Dilated we're correctly holdin' the crown

Sometimes you gotta let **** go to watch it come back
Move in silence, tracks covered, no fingerprints
Type on tour that might, hit your misses
We hit the road with Rage, Guru and Primo
Kweli and all top notch acts, keep it classic
And after the encore, they ask for more
'Science the best, so don't test
I got it down so cold like ice from Jew Heights
How that sound?
How that sound?
It's that **** you pump loud when you roll into town

Ghetto hip-hop that your city block rocks
Reach under my seat for that heat that blaze tracks
Dilated made our way through the maze, "so take that!"
After two L's, I'm cool like James Todd Smith
I teach but I'm ready willin' able to learn
And tryin' to leave a legacy that you couldn't believe
Rakaa Cy Young on the M-I-C
And the real backbone of hip-hop is disc jocks
How that sound?
How that sound?
How that sound?
