Track Name: Give It Up
Give It Up Lyrics

Verse 1:
When I’m on my English I flow bloody nicel
I’m a nobody, there’s nobody like me
Muhammad Ali with a model on her knees
And my mind so lean I outrun a lightbeam
What the mic mean? A chance to reach the people
Bow down on stage like as if it was my steeple
Praying to the gods of the hip-hop religion
I ain’t start sh**, this what I was given
Livin’, Lovin’, Laughin’, Rappin’,
What happened to that good old time soul clappin?
He’s so captain, when he’s just rappin’
You all dancin’ and I’m just chantin’ (he-ya)
With that old time rhymin’ flow, so damn phenomenal,
Lotta those people hatin’, they’re all flammable
So I just burn ‘em and then I say vamanos…

Chorus:
I’ve been all around the world now
I’ve seen all kinds of people down
But still there’s only one for me…
I want you to give it up…. For all those old time ways
I need you to give it up…. Back in those old time days
I want you to give it up… Nowadays we insane, but they kept us from strayin’ I’m not sayin’ I’m just sayin’

Verse 2:
When I’m on my native sh** I’m like Weenuk,
You lames are all lost why don’t you all team up
First I want my land and then the gulf cleaned up
Then I’ll find myself a lady and put my damn feet up
Can’t beat us there’s no room for improvement
Not a leader, I’m just part of that movement
Natives on the rise, with our eyes on the goove-rment
Oops, I meant government, damn ya’ll you’re lovin’ it
Everytime, I’m utterin’ how I rose above the sh**
Came down from the mothership, like a bird that’s thunderin’
Stutterin’? Never. Abundantly clever,
Havin’ the other wish they under the weather
Whatever, Wab better, forever he’s awesome.
Damn in the river makes drink in the faucet.
Think that we lost it, but still I let the brother’s know
Time to go straight and stand like the White Buffalo

Chorus:
I’ve been all around the world now
I’ve seen all kinds of people down
But still there’s only one for me…
I want you to give it up…. For all those old time ways
I need you to give it up…. Back in those old time days
I want you to give it up… Nowadays we insane, but they kept us from strayin’ I’m not sayin’ I’m just sayin’
