Yea (yeaaah)
Come on

Yo, yo
Ayo my silent moments, loud as the crack of thunder
My hunger is like the crocodile that'll jack the hunter
It ain't commercial or underground, its true cause I
(wanna be good to you)

Call it skill, call it game, call it glow, call my name
Like the Lord, all in vein, screaming like you all in pain
Treat it like a drug, all up in ya vain cause (wanna be good to you)

We make the squares dance, and get the do like dotsey
Why'all *****s roll with *****-cats like Josey
All spoiled rotten like ghetto groceries yo
I clutch the mic like ya grandma clutch her rosary yo
Swooping the industry, like a bird to prey
My stanza's got stamina, ya verses lack vertebrae
I heard them say I was a conscious rapper
But I'm a monster when I hafta smack the **** out of a nonsense actor
Using my 'hands solo' and I don't need chewy
Over your head like Yamulke's and Koofies yo
I write screen gems, why'all *****s act in 'B' movies, type of *****s proud to be groupies
Followers in the herd running over the cliff, I'm the
Buffalo soldier, smoke ya like a dreadlock rasta
Blowing the spliff, loading a clip to spit high
Like you holding blow in a stolen whip, rolling the strip
Looking to hit cops, now that's a four alarm
Black queen falling on my arms, you could call it charm
Mater fact call it what you want, its up to you bro
(wanna be good to you)


How many *****s ever been in love
How many *****s really think they thugs
And can't think without the drink and drugs
How many *****s can't get in with hats and sneakers on
Say '**** security' and get inside and keep them on
How many *****s think that gats make em weak or strong
Can't do for self and want to snatch the plate you eating on
That don't take heart, slave ***** play ya part
I'd rather jump over board *****, face the sharks
We stay doing it, later for the conversation
Hammers is cocked and waiting, *****s is not debating
We ain't got the patience You found popping ****
Come in to town just to run you down like poppa ditch
And dig a proper ditch, you lying like a politician
Your proposition meets opposition like contradictions
Get out my house, you ain't no real representative
I make it happen, you ain't official, you tentative
*****s is sensitive, see how they catching feelings
It's so hot, the sweat rise it'll wet the ceiling
Barracuda, spitkickin' ***** that's the crew (wanna be good to you)

Whoo! (yeaahh)
Come on
Low ride

*****s be claiming ****, find a gangsta movie
Put they name in it, biting like there ain't no shame in it
You the hardest on the beat, I'm the fire that you playing with
You a artist from the street, I'll give you the blood to paint it with
So yeah I'm positive, I'm positive I'm the best
Spit bullets to split ya vest and deposit them in ya chest
Dark is the flesh on my bones, calling Brooklyn home
Hang up on *****s like 'I want you to meet my ***** tone', word
Leave me alone like Michael Jackson
Or there'll be more than butterflies in your stomach
Waiting to see what happens
You see me out, know that my crew is flawless
So called gangstas need more security than the Rawkus office
Yo, I thought you bust ya gun
You just a big joke, thinking you a Big Pun
Yo, Kayne this is the big one (wanna be good to you)
Me and my *****s having big fun

Yo, yo
Ayo my silent moments, loud as the crack of thunder
My hunger is like the crocodile that'll jack the hunter
It ain't commercial or underground, its true cause I
(wanna be good to you)


Come on
BK and
BX and
Q boro and
Manhattan and
Harlem *****s and
Long Island
Want to be good to you you you come on! (wanna be good to you)
The whole world rocking
Yo the whole world rocking
Ayo uhh
