Lyrics
What yo
Just when things seemed the same and the whole scene is lame
I come and reign with the unexplained for the brains till things change
They strain to slang sling I'm trained to bring game
History that I arranged been regained by King James
Go to practice with tactics when the track hits theatrics
Women that look like actress the status of Cleopatra's
Stacks of mathematics took the ?ego-a-geatics?
As I find out, what the facts is, for geographic
No time to sip Mo's with hostess, never mind what the total gross is
I rip shows, stay focused, and split cheese, with soldiers
While you hit trees and coast I spit flows that be ferocious
And with these explosives, I split seas for Moses
Shine permanently only my mind's concerning me
Fire burns in me eternally time's eternity
Followers turn on me they'll be in a mental infirmary
Determinedly advance technology better than Germany
Since the first days you know of, till the last days is over
I was always the flow-er, I made waves for Noah
From a compound, to the anatomy, to the breakdown of a atom
Some of my rap patterns, still surround Saturn
From the ancient Hieroglyphics, to graffiti painted pictures
I study I know the scriptures but nowadays ain't it vicious
Date back I go beyond check the holy Qu'ran
To speeches at the altar on, now we get our party on
So being beneficent, I bless em with dialogue
They expecting, the next testament by the God
I blow em through battle zones with chrome for chaperon
Blast beats with saxophones one of the baddest rapper's known
Every country city and borough, side street and ghetto
Isle and alley and meadow theories fertile enough to echo
When it was one mass of land, with one nash' of man
And the whole mass was ran under one master plan
Since the world's metamorphosis, and the plan is kept in orbit
Turntables we spin off but the needles never skip off it
Rhythms we expressing similar to our ancestors
It'll answer your questions if you understand the message
From the days of the slave choppers?, to the new age of prophets
As heavy as hip-hop is I'm always ready to drop it
From the mind which is one of Allah's best designs
And mines'll stand the test of time, when I rhyme

[Repeat: x2]
The 18th Letter, the prophesy professor
I stay clever, long as the planet stay together
Bring up praise from Mecca, make a phrase for the better
In new days to remember, always and forever

The "r" baby
