Lyrics
[Eric B]: Yo Rakim what's up?

[Rakim]: Yo I'm doing the knowledge E. I'm trying to get paid in full

[E]: Well check this out since Nobry Walters is our agency right?

[R]: True

[E]: Kara Lewis is our agent

[R]: Word up

[E]: Zakia/4th & Broadway is our record company

[R]: Indeed

[E]: Okay so who we rollin with?

[R]: We rollin with Rush

[E]: Of Rushtown Management. Check this out since we talking over

This def beat that I put together, I want to hear some of them

Def rhymes, know what I'm sayin? And together, we can get

Paid in full...

Thinkin of a master plan

'cause ain't nuthin but sweat inside my hand

So I dig into my pocket, all my money is spent

So I dig deeper but still comin up with lint

So I start my mission- leave my residence

Thinkin how could I get some dead presidents

I need money, I used to be a stick-up kid

So I think of all the devious things I did

I used to roll up, this is a hold up, ain't nuthin funny

Stop smiling, be still, don't nuthin move but the money

But now I learned to earn 'cause I'm righteous

I feel great! so maybe I might just

Search for a 9 to 5, if I strive

Then maybe I'll stay alive

So I walk up the street whistlin this

Feelin out of place 'cause, man, do I miss

A pen and a paper, a stereo, a tape of

Me and Eric be, and a nice big plate of

Fish, which is my favorite dish

But without no money it's still a wish

'cause I don't like to dream about gettin paid

So I dig into the books of the rhymes that I made

To now test to see if I got pull

Hit the studio, 'cause I'm paid in full
