[Hook: repeat 2X]
Power, money and influence
I had a taste of it, now I’m all into it
The game ain’t over ’till I get my share
’till I have my run, this here is my year

[Jean Grae]
Man, I’m a icon, whether in person or click Nikon
Crisp Nikes on, six niggas with sick pythons
Right around your area, face close like a scared
Straight playin your host, you get bitched out
This ain’t fluffin a rang, this clip ain’t bang
You sittin lame duck, shittin on the names stuck
I vow this year, power’s mine
If I gotta sketch up my name, empowering rhymes
If I gotta attend jail just to boost up the sales
I know a label owner that I’d love to bruise up for bail
I know my family got it, they pull together but it’s amniotic
I mean baby like askin for a name spot it
The talent, the influental and erotic
Put on the back burner but potential is apparent
Every track is a murder but could treat it like bubonic
The plague that Grae’s here, now I’m seizing the day, it’s mine

In one second flat I tear your whole frame
Plus we pack like a stadium does, at a pro game
Got so many ways to end yo glory
Rub you out, shut you down, then it’s end of story
I’m like Robert Horry with a clutch three
You can’t touch me, the black double oh-seven, nigga trust me
Modern day Ali when it comes to the rhyme
Know how to hold the fort down when they comin for mine
I’m crafty, I move swift and changeable
Plus I’m aware, of what jealousy and anger do
You can’t help yourself then you can’t help me
Can’t smell what the truth is then you can’t smell me
You can tell a million stories about how gully you are
Then as soon as you finish, I’m be pullin your card
I step so courageously, I rap so amazingly
I guess you could say, that niggas slept on me basically

[Hook] 2X

[Talib Kweli]
Jean Grae, Kweli, Guru, for the first time
Let the games begin like Jaceson Taylor wrote his first rhyme
Technology make niggas lazy, with the Pro Tools
Even you could write your verse in the booth like you were Jay-Z
A Hollywood between reality tv and rap
Is there ain’t no more use for the classically trained actor
First light bulb ever made is still burnin
They sell the ones that burn out to take the money you earnin
Word that marijuana grow too natural to be a cash crop
We have cops at bars, smokin squares, throwin back shots
They walk the street and bring the heat to the asphalts
Servin, protectin the haves, beatin on the have-nots
Niggas talk greazy in the magazines
‘Till they track down and you hear the sounds of loaded magazines
Havin dreams ’till they lips got a gat in between
Passion for cream, make a nigga wanna splatter your spleen
That shit is mean
[Hook] 2X
