Chorus 12 years ago, a friend of mine Asked me to spit these MC rhymes So I said this rhyme I'm about to say The beat was dope, and it went this wayâ€¦ Well my name is T, from the golden state They call San Andreas cause I cause earthquakes Been rhyming on the mic since the age of 8 The fans and the people tell me that I'm great Yall can hate, but they relate, trying to get all of you walking through them pearly gates I been to city's all around the globe, Nicaragua Australia down to Tokyo, Lima Peru and London back to San Tropez When I'm in Paris France pale vu France Seen me on TV and on big screens Now I'm crushing MC's like they jelly beans Now get both of them hands in tha air And wave em all around like in around like B-Boys in flair We bringing the noise, and a raising our voice Plus I keep it old school like the Beastie Boys. I had to take this rhyme back to the 80's When rap was bout skills DJ's and the ladies Didn't rhyme about sex and degrading themselves And rappers didn't glorify busting e
m' shells This is a hip-hop blast from the past, stop All the violence put away all the straps Better enjoy the music cuz it's not gonna last If we keep on glorifying all the killing and gats The milies and Mac's the chronic and hash and the cats slanging perico on the corner for cash We gotta try to make a change for the better, and stop Selling out for the fame and the cheddar, put down berretta Quit throwing up letters I'm trying to make a difference it ain't getting no better That's why I came to represent for all of my people Wit conscious rap Chico, cuz it's almost illegal
