I step on this stage
Test the mic, 1-2, 1-2 and turn the page
I’m growing older, turn into a sage
Wise beyond my years, the number is just an age
I do my work, give me my wage
Either that or I will erupt in a rage.
Test me; see me flip over the gauge
So hot they got to keep me in a cage
I’m a child of Africa.
Still walking, not a chance of A-FREE-CAR.
I drop these beats, see me go far.
I am no lawyer, but I pass the 16th bar.
First I smile at her
Then I get the paper
Soon I get her
And she smiles at my paper
I am in no team, but I got this wordplay
Grab your attention, listen to my words play
You drop your gaze and I make you pay
My words on your ear, you won’t hear what they say
So dedicated, my will has many ways
So bright, when I sleep they still say “Good day”
I search for you, invade your thoughts; shine a light with this ray
I won’t preach to you, let me teach you if I may?
Months gone and I’m still on this phone
Got my crew with me they are never gone
Like Liverpool, I never walk alone
Hungry for success, throw this dog a bone
I never whisper, pay attention to my tone
So hot, I’m making these words moan
Can never decide whether that’s an adjective or a noun
I’m not a knight or a king I’m that rebel pawn
I use landmines not sprinklers so stay off my lawn
I sweat for this, always reaping what I’ve sown
Falling seven times, standing up eight as I never stay down
In time you will witness how I run this town
So here I stand with my black grenade
As I blow up be ready for I will serenade
Shine till the end of time, I shall never fade
East to West, I never see a shade
I go the whole night that’s why I love a jade
I just became I was never made
I do this for the people, never have to be paid
I don’t chase yet I still get laid
I don’t run, I am never afraid
And hence in this decade, like a crusade, finer words will never be said.
