Lyrics:
it started with a rhymebook in the sixth grade
the main objective was not to get paid
always knew things would turn out this way
center of attention bright lights the big stage
due to my complexion they kept a eye on me
shoulda did the math earlier now thats irony
no need for comparing stats
question is would they have cared if i was black?
cant lie chose a narrow path
you can recognize a pioneer by the arrows in his back
the name jin synonomous with spittin
i kicked down doors all my big fans wont tell you different
now i got a fam to feed though
need that real bread not that wheat toast
put it all on the line like a free throw
and when the beat drop im goin beast mode
the fiyah i spit you would think i lit a matchstick
far from a freshmen i don’t belong on that list
i used my words to infect ya students like the bird flu
the schoolnurse too that’s how you make a class sick
so-called rappers got me the least bit impressed
i put ’em in a crunch like tryin’ to put ya knees to ya chest
and while yall searching for the keys to success
i just pick the locks we are the streets in the flesh
i been the underdog but never unprepared
stop sayin your joint bangs i’ve had it up to here
cleaning out my attic aint got it all upstairs
ya crew is straight outta minecraft just a bunch of squares
im a glimpse of greatness my potential is enormous
check the skills i display this is a peek of my performance
denzel in training day ’96 jordan fadeaway after
guzzlin’ two gallons of gatorade
safe to say i paved the way for alot of up and comers
the industry is sudoku they just lookin’ at the numbers
its like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder how
i keep from goin’ under keep from goin’ under
the original message was loud and clear somewhere
along the way it got cloudy and nearly disappeared
all you need now is a laptop and some beats from the net
i plugged my mic in the boombox with the dual cassette decks
hiphop is for the youth thats who it truly is serving
only right to pass the torch and continue the burning
know where you came from thats the root of the sermon
cause i bet lebron can you tell you who’s julius irving
when kool herc planted the seed at sedgewick and sedar
you think he knew that he’d be giving birth to future leaders
my rhymebook was more than just a place to write lyrics
nobodys listening but i knew every page would hear it
i knew every page would hear it
i knew every page would hear it
my rhymebook was more than just a place to write lyrics
nobodys listening but i knew every page would hear it
