[Thes One:] Told me, he said, "If you wanna dewrit, you got to dewrit! We gonna dewrit, you have to dewrit…"
([Thes One, played backwards:] From fuckin' Los Angeles, California…)

[Thes One:]
The fans get jaded, the rappers get hated
I took my time, I write my rhyme gold-plated
With the noose, I write a rhyme book like Seuss
Or Theo LeSieg, I took a swig and got loose
Then produced the track like balsamic on simmer
Breakbeats for dinnertime, I'm cookin' winner rhymes
Bottom line: design, I Frank Lloyd Wright poetry to a T
Huh, "Nth degree" means nothing to me, I emcee all night
Hunched over a mic like I'm callin' a fight
The party people delight in the way I write a beat
Like a bike seat with the fly speak when they pump Chic
I rock a pip squeak from here to pimp, see, I break bones
Ride off the pier with a pocket full of stones
I condone hits like Al Capone
Laid back with a beer like I'm Sam Malone and say "Cheers!"
Yeah, here's to my peers that are still around
Try to dig in the crates with nothing fuckin' found
It really doesn't matter anymore, so fuck it!

Shit's in the bag, I already crushed it
Homeless man on the tin can, why rush it?
The moral of the story, allegory like the rabbit and the hare
Laid back, and I hung in there
Didn't chase the carrot that was hangin' from the stick
Stuck to my own merit, inherited something sick
Like original Zelda with a criminal element
Irrelevant MCs watchin' just for the hell of it
Shit, chill… play the wall, chin on the fist
Sad kid on the windowsill gets dissed
With my outdated slang, I'm outta my mind
Like a one-man gang when I'm writin' my rhymes
Like the homeboys in the 80's, I do it for the ladies
Fill my iTunes account, a down payment on Mercedes
Yo, I leave 10-7-3 to guess, 70 my weapon
We ready to be steadily aimed ahead of me
So what's it all mean, I'm never snortin' a line
I body slam rhymes like two at a time
Drink a cold Colt 40 with a twist of lime
I grab a 40, yo, bitch! Now, I'm going for mine
So what you sayin'?
