There's so many of us now
Ah, ah, yeah
[Chorus] - 2X
Everyday, ghetto niggaz from my block
[R.A. in the background]
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Ayyo! Ayyo!
[R.A. Verse One]
Remember Masters of Ceremonies, Grand Pubah
Yo, bring it back, yo
Early 80s, girl chase on
Flavor Flav, Public Enemy clocks, boom box
Before Pubah, Steady B, Heavy D, Mouthburnin
Rock Box, Run Dmc, true hip hop
Before we even learned to make beats, we was in the basement
But see, rap is corporate now
So now the rich kids love it, so fuck them poor kids now!
[Chorus] - 2X
I remember when the mainstream hated rap music
I yelled BOX like Cool J on some Krush Groove shit
That's when Rakim ran shit [Ran shit]
Before Biz Markie was busy pickin boogers
Graffiti vandals, Jimmy Packer sex scandals
Back when we didn't have the papered samples
Chubb Rock hit the Grammys, Hitman Howie Tee, Doug E. Fresh, Chill Will, Barry B

X-Clan, ZOOM, pro black, Mr. Bozack
Before we had show DATs, no gats, no plaques
Bomb Squad, Hank Shocklee and Keith Shocklee
Busy Boys, Realski
8th grade, parents on vacation, house makin plans
Misbehavein, shootin pelletguns at Dunkin Donuts
Used their nice sticks to chock us
Cash Money, Marvellous, Funkmaster Flex
Fresh Prince, Jazzy Jeff
[Chorus] - 2X
Simphony and Simphony 2
Nas and Akinyele debut
Def Squad, Hit Squad
Salt 'n Pepa ?, Potholes and Plug Tunin
Shut' em down, Pete Rock producin
We had Marvin Hagler, fuck Oscar De La Hoya
6th grade, I ate my first pussy
