[Verse 1: Pep Love]
I'm a hard line flow pressure, professor
I ain't in it for the fame but I wanna live forever
I'm so mega with the mo' better
Capital letter, if you don't get it
Go get a Rosetta Stone
Either way you translate it
You better just let it be known that daddy's home
I'm taking off my belt
I was staring in the eyes of my enemy and saw myself
Then the law got dealt
To the peasants in my presence
I'm the best in it even if I didn't have a bread cent
The resident resident Buddha blessed in it
Represented if not a record then by a record spinning
Comes well recommended
You gon' see me test my limit before my second wind hit
Pancake batter, grey matter, grab a dame by her mane
Have her love the way I came at her

[Hook: Pep Love]
When we step into your city
Keep it grimy and gritty, the Hiero committee
Run s___ like the mayor
Party over here, what? Y'all over there
When we stomp into your area
Everywhere you are
No one can better, nah
We run s___ like the governor
But we gon' let it do what it did, what it does, huh
We run s___ like the mayor

[Verse 2: Tajai]
No matter the subject matter
The rigors with which I subject matter
With my inter-dimensional spits unparalleled
Did you all mitt, the progenitor click
Invented the s___ in your well-spun fairy tale
Why give specks respects due
The truth will protect you
When next to you'll see growths essential
Measurement ain't even relevant or evident
In the shadow of a mountain
Shouting how big your pebbles is
Well rocko I'm such a generous gentleman
Who when times is reticent to denigrate degenerates
It's mean, I'd rather disseminate the medicine
I mean all smart soldiers imitate the veterans
Congressional medalists from umpteen tours
Really here for one thing: your progression and betterment
Shoop heard veterans bailing in the desert winds
Spreading this gospel to any hostile settlement


[Verse 3: Casual]
I'm one of them dudes
You won't catch me hanging out with none of them dudes
None of them fools, 'less I'm trying to run up bamboos
For a hundred grand
The shoes, the tie, the hat, the crew's dip
Plus the new s___ that would arrive and tighten up loose lips
Blue ships, the top pick
The crew sick, and you pick the topic
The crew spit hot s___
Subduce the subconscious cause I'm just lyrically obnoxious but conscious
You n____s better feel me or chill, B
Don't ice grill me just blow nice
But really, I only smoke spliffs
Kush like Nubia
Kushite to harm your king
The swing's off ya, steel shine
No prime flow when it's time for the rhyme flow
