Wake Up

 

Intro

 

The 23rd Stallion

No more jingles, no more dances/ whack singles/ vocal enhancements/ ya talentless asses/

give me mic no privilege to pass it/

thatís right, imposters/ holdin hip hop hostage/

nonsense and garbage should just be stopped and restarted/

with mad peeps in denial/ and theres a pile/ of one hit wonders vile/ getting on the radio while/ them rappers wit talent and passion/ get put off and passed on/ like some blunts and some hash on/ gassed that they gonna last on the tube/ by putting a mask on a dude/ and assume/ we dumb like you

 

Chorus

Wake Up! Iíll show you how, Wake Up! The time is now

Repeat 8x

Iíma show you what hip hop is like

 

YKC

This cultures a lot more than a dance

It goes to a lot more than our fan

Amounts to a lot more than I am

I wonít stop thatís sort of the plan

I post up in my b boy stance

Give innovation more than a chance

Year by year on tour by demand

New york, Cali, Japan, France

Iím telling ya man I bruise tracks

Pass me the mic, Iíll prove that Gimme some room,

Moove back Uma show ya how we doooo that I got this rap sewn, This for all you sleepers

Bound to get you mind blown Thatís more than just your speakers

 

Chorus

Wake Up! Iíll show you how Wake Up! The time is now

Repeat 8x Iíma show you what hip hop is like

 

Tur-Bo

My ears and my eyes have been telliní me lies

so the other senses had to try to compromise

to provide the defenses, while I fight against this

pretentious collection of music deception,

correction, wait donít forget direction, hip-hop has moved in,

proves to the people these labels believe weíre stupid

but the truth is, that a few is foolish, and clueless,

much to the fact that hip-hop is already ruined, you been,

fooled bad by the labels who constantly pay the stations

to play every song you donít wanna hear on rotation,

letís face it, you need to escape it, itís written on your face,

and it cannot be debated you donít have to take this

pain in your heart, you could start medication,

but where is the part where you start to lose patience

 

Chorus

Wake Up! Iíll show you how Wake Up! The time is now

Repeat 8x Iíma show you what hip hop is like
