Aiyyo Ev (Whattup Rak?)
There's a lot of cats didn't see this one comin'
Lotta cats not gon' understand
Never saw the path that we walked
You run that joint you did on the radio that night
(Oh) Let people know, do this one for the interviews
Do it for the people, Years In The Making

Yo, my first verse, from '90 to '94
Mostly peepin' cats' styles out and hittin' the floor
A little bit, in '91 that's when we got down
Different sides of town, on the bus I made rounds
I was involved in graffiti heavily
My people were Self, Tau and Freck RIP
At night I heard beats next door by QD III
