Blackalicious Smithzonian Institute Of Rhyme

[Gab:]

yeah yeah [2x]

[Lateef:]

Blackalicious

Lateef the truth speaker

[Gab:]

A little somethin

[Together:]

Now if you want some you best come with a gun

You cant fuck with the tongue or the way the song is sung

By lateef and blackalicious we keep it fat, delicious

Complete and grant your wishes

So peep the rap and listen

You cant be idle you best come trifle

But even with a rifle your stylell get stifled

[Lateef:] quick

[Gab:]

Lateef and blackalicious we coming for that dough to get

The lyrics that we wrote again

Are sounding rather vicous beyond scientific

I’ll snap like a doberman I’m unable to hold it in

I really hope you feel it, check it out

Droppin the topic and me apocaplypse

Hip hop metroplis we stalkin mcs

Dont stop this marvelous three partners

This bottomless beat has opened wideness

Invitin us inside of its deep rhythmic enviroment

A labryinth its violent beings just won’t be silent

And higher, and higher means to a world (?)

Where all I need is prez

And that is my rent

Just by fatting the rest

Who wont admire it

Wont rule as a tyrant

Dont condone viloence

Till the next man trys it

Dont tax no pirate

Just watch as I begin to shape your world

All mcs in the land spanked and baked and broiled

Charred and seasoned in a pan – damn

Awakened world stagnant even though they always been there

Laggin about exposing it to the hearing impaired establishment

Raw energy they cant be compared

Tag em then we drag them then we finshed – yeah

[Together:]

Now if you want some you best come with a gun

You cant fuck with the tongue or the way the song is sung

By lateef and blackalicious we keep it fat; delicious

Complete and grant your wishes

So peep the rap and listen

You cant be idle you best come trifle

But even with a rilfe your stylell get stifled

[Lateef:] quick

Let it hit them

The suffocation begins your soul it gets engulfed in

The sound like its emotion it works just like a potion

It hurts just like thats only motion gotta think about some rules

See it cant just all be coastin

Get to get the spectrum of the wave

Whenever you know its flowin

Got a notion and its deep keep it growing like the ocean dont get salty

Its just me get a dose thats instantaneous essential constantly

Fits like a constellation glowing natrually in facts you see the past

The future marches on triumphantly defiantly relentlessly

If it aint one thing its somethin something else

The instrumental that contributes to your mental health

As for most mcs we moving like a ninja that is killin ya stealthily

Handle your bizness candidly fool we gigantic globally locally

And organically aint nothing you gonna do thats gonna damage me

In this currency its tragedy we value beyond champion originality

Is this shit thats happen

We trigger an emotional response causes you to react violently

Yeah we trigger an emotional response causes you to react violently

[Together:]

Now if you want some you best come with a gun

You cant fuck with the tongue or the way the song is sung

By lateef and blackalicious we keep it fat; delicious

Complete and grant your wishes

So peep the rap and listen

You cant be idle you best come trifle

But even with a rifle your stylell get stifled

[Lateef:] quick

[Together:]

Lateef and blackalicious is coming for that dough to get

The lyrics that we wrote again are sounding rather vicious

Now if you want some you better come with a gun

You cant fuck with the tongue

Or your ass’ll get stung by lateef and blackalicious

We keep it fat, delicious

Complete and grant your wishes we move just like eclipses

You cant be idle cause even with a title

And even with a rifle your styell get stifled – yeah

[Sample:] The king is going home to get his throne

From the root to the flute that’s where everything started at…
