[Erick Sermon]
Def Jam

It's E-Dub on the microphone
Homes, walk around with forty-four chrome
This here ain't the average ****, you used to
So knock it off, like Biggie Smalls said Duke you soft

Where should I start? Breakin MC's or shattering charts?
The go-getter, getter, get wit 'er, hit 'er-split 'er
So Heidi Heidi Heidi hydro, pack gats and ammo
With more cheese than Lambeau, more heat than Rambo

I just get down, and I go for mines
(Inclined to shine) with techs and (forty-four mags and nines)

Uhh, yo, and yo
Me and you got different views
What I might call wack, you'll call hot
Or get choked, and hung with The Velvet Rope
And end up smacking you, jacking you, attacking you
[Parrish Smith]
Double beaucoup, just ripping up mics, is what my crew do
Roadblocks and smear campaigns, with the two-two
I'm accurate, don't waste mine, spit on baseline
I don't fake mine, you blaze crazy, while I pace mine
[Erick Sermon]
We've been doing this ****, since Dear Yvette, check
And ice grill him, and make you want to kill him dead
For playing with the last Mahican
Keep quiet when you hear grown men speaking
[Parrish Smith]
Delirious, that's how we leave cats and *****z curious
Big like Dog 40 and the Dutch from the 7-11
The mic strangler, PMD, the ****ing Head Banger
Pump a nine on the reg behind penitentiary steel
[Chorus x 2]
Say check 1, 2, and run down the line
Don't get too close because you might get shot
