[Erick Sermon]
I make a million buck
Every six months and y'all
Hating my game saying my name they call
Me the E wrong things
Knowing I'm fly without wings
While some of y'all have to pull strings.
In this era I maintain the freak upon the beats
Master baselines of Raphael Saadiq
Lyrical mastermind a genius so don't snooze
No missions impossible ask Tom Cruise
I keep a joint lit when I have to spit
I rough paragraph, laugh when I'm busting yo' ***, who want it?
Come and see me, like 112
And I'll rock that bell with Fox and L
E-Dub, Mr Excitement, right
The poltergeist of rap so come to the light.
Yes, the recipient of this award goes to Moi,
The best qualified superstar.

[Chorus: EPMD]
My squad stays on point like
Den en den den de den, It's the joint
Yeah my squad stay on point like,
Den en den den de den, Its the joint.
New York I'm in your area, (Over here)
DC I'm in your area, (Over here)
New Jerse I'm in your area, (Over here)
EPMD, its a world premier

[Parrish Smith]
Its the joint, stay on point
Plus I'm feeling it
*****s killing **** trying to duplicate the manuscript
That's impossible, pray like the gospel
Over coming set backs, and jumping over obstacles
Like Evil Kenevil, on point like a needle
EPMDs' like the Beatles, back with another sequel
To hip hop, check one two and you don't stop
Rap with mainstream R&B and pop
Now the worlds shocked
The E-doubles back with Mic-Doc
Like it or not we bout to turn it up another notch
My speeds put it down for my seeds
Raw breeds, acres with the deeds, its the joint.

My squad stays on point like
Den en den den de den, It's the joint
Yeah my squad stay on point like,
Den en den den de den, Its the joint.
VA I'm in your area, (Over here)
DA I'm in your area, (Over here)
Chi Town I'm in your area, (Over here)
EPMD, its a world premier

[EPMD]
E: My styles digable, so I'm phat like that
I got a Benz too, and its black like that
I got millions of chips, and they stack like that
A five year spread, and now we back like that
How dare they, *****s sitting in they room with Brandy
Way pissed off thinking how the can't stand me
He rhyme Shawn for his Penn, talking
Not looking, shoocken, a dead man walking
P: You know me, from ripping shows wit my homie
The one and only, Ginuwine like Pony
You want a ride? Call me up when your lonely
I'm Parish Smith and ****, Great like Tony
I'm hittin hittin
Where from?
From brentwood to San Quentin
I'ma keep rhyming, still representing
Ro who?
For my *****s up north and in the ?Courts?
And for the emcees taking no shorts, in this blood sport

My squad stays on point like
Den en den den de den, It's the joint
Yeah my squad stay on point like,
Den en den den de den, Its the joint.
Cali I'm in your area, (Over here)
Philly I'm in your area, (Over here)
EPMD, its a world premier
