Hook [Felicia Nicole]

Sometimes I stop and think, think, think, think… [Repeat 2x’s]
That if I be me
Can I be free?

Verse [The IGive]

I’m an old school rapper with a new school flow / and the flow is my passion but I have to make dough / off the art of expression. My perspective is though / it’s a hard commercial market, but I can’t sell my soul. / My soul is what to listen for / I shine so it glistens more / Explosive, but it’s helpful to the heart like nitroglycerin / Can you picture all the thoughts I’ve been thinking? All the songs I’ve been singing? / All the stars I’ve been wishing on? / Now stop for a moment / It’s my heart that you’re holding when you hear my records spinning on / CD’s, DVD’s, mp3’s, and TV’s / and ye be receiving my life on a 16 bar / I burn the record like a tattoo made scar / and I pray YHWH bless it as I walk this way forward / onward in the universe, while the sun is hot / now stop… / now everybody

[Repeat Hook]

Verse Two [The IGive]

Now I’m young in my body but I’m old in the lyric / Spirit guide my voice; I speak words when I hear it / I’m interiorly strong from the pressure of my peers / Chill every night and day as I rise over fears / I fear God and no man / roaming like a nomad / Beatnik barbarian, kill emcees like Conan / Sowing, so I can reap the harvest as the snow ends / spring my offensive, lyric violence, throwing bows in / the club. And to you wack ass rappers show no love / I throw all my detractors birds like middle finger nubs / I say “Fuck you and thank you” / Sweet words smell like stank poo / I put on hater vision ‘cause I can’t be blind to shank crews / Pain bruised like two blue suede shoes / Tunnel vision to the future! Will you stay tuned? / It don’t stop! To the beat y’all / Here’s a summertime rhyme, feel the heat y’all / It don’t stop! She a sweet girl, with a winter cold soul, watch her feet move / It’s don’t stop…now everybody

[Repeat Hook]

Verse Three [The IGive]

I just want to be me / T-H-E I-G-I-V-E / ‘til I “GiveLove” ‘til be F-R-E-E / speed-speeding down the boulevard / spitting bars like bullets are / check the trunk I’m pulling cards / gat, macks, whatever are / You think you know me then you know me not / Firefly, homie, Lake City, Kobe hot / Hold me down in the cell then you know me plot / Wonder which innovation will the G concoct / Cock back like a cocked back fitted or a snapback / Flabby at the belly, call me beast you a flapjack / Crack back like them boys do on fields / I’m a real emcee, y’all ain’t cold y’all chills / Real hip hop to the core J-ville / with that head nod rhythm when you can’t stay still / I’m a kill “DreamKillerz” / Prophecy fulfiller / and it don’t get no iller than the beats where I’ve written prescriptions / I’m the doctor of diction / What I prescribe will leave you addicted, now stop.
