Vocal inflection connects, it`s a slugfest
Thoughts are like oceans for my lyrics to float in
I`m absolutely astute so salute
Don`t misinterpret or slander

And since I`m inclined, I`ll kick precisely the right rhymes
My rhymes are like shelter, or rather like an umbrella
About the schemes that they dreamed of
About the way they slayed this one or that one
Who tried to match the panache of the Guru

It would make more sense if suckers hide in the basement
I got much flavor and class too
I know you`ve notice I`m a writer of hype lines

Precisely the right rhymes, simplistic but packed
But stay close as your host serves hors d`oeveurs

'Cause my style is pure and
You`ll see I`m inclined, to kick precisely the right rhymes
