lyrics

He's SAN, The Instru-monumentalist
And I'm the reason half these rappers need therapists
Striking with precision, these kids are hit or miss
We kick them out of the playground if they still persist
Bad for the environment - I don't recycle
Every day I write enough to give a whale a mouthful
"Anyone else this fresh?" that’s highly doubtful
I knocked them all out - wasn't even a hassle
One in six billion kids spit like this
Same statistic for the hits, kicks and flips
You ballerinas don't impress with your acrobatics
A back flip is just a fancy step backwards
While SAN finds sunken treasure digging in the crates,
I'm writing a script to snatch the food off your plate
You name a time, pick a scene, set a date
I'll dig a fly grave to make you fashionably late
Like Hounds of Baskerville, Murder, Murder, Kill
Abandon cotton fields, F-ck how the masters feel
Gifted Unlimited Rhymes with mass appeal
They love hip-hop but could never match the zeal
Of this superhero-slash-organ donor;
Dead or alive I'll get you out of that corner
But on the Mic I still get funny looks like a foreigner
I guess you're yet to meet the worlds weirdest performer
Of cunning linguistics from a collection of Misfits
Str8 Buttah, Audible Braile are on the hit list
Of every up-and-coming rapper that thinks he's on some slick sh-t
And every young cat with Pro Tools trying to flip this
Better quit while you're still idealistic
The album's still untitled yet it’s on your wishlist
I could walk into any booth or cipher naked
cause these rappers can't see me.
We went from vacant stares to love from our peers
I used to beg for until I realized that I could take theirs
No throne so I made one of my own
From rookie flesh and veteran bones
From Lesotho to Naija, let it be known
That omitting us from your top ten, won't be condoned
As I Explore this Opera and Fire Foxes with the Chrome
On Safari on my sofa like I never left home

We Don't even know what we're going to call it yet
So why they on the side looking so upset
Heads we win, tails you lose - now place a bet
Keep telling yourself RAE is not a threat

We Don't even know what we're going to call it yet
So why they on the side looking so upset
Heads we win, tails you lose - now place a bet
Keep telling yourself SAN is not a threat
