This must be what Ali felt like that morning in Kinshasa, Zaire, before he fought George Foreman to get his heavy weight title back.
Verse 1 (G-C)
I get bolder with each fear, Taller with each stair/ Older with each year and stranger with each tear/ The deepest of ill minds/ Iller with each try/ Sicker with each rhyme and never repeat lines/ Look, this rabbit hole is really more than a dream to me/ This other land, or wonderland feels like its real to me/ And no matter how much it hurts, or its even mean to me/ Hip hop is the only place I need to be/ How much longer can I do this?/ How much longer can I dream?/ How much longer can I scream?/ How much further can I bleed?/ How much longer can I take? Until there is no more to receive/ My mother needs to retire, my dad is tired of me/ This habit became my talent, this talent became my passion, this passion has held me captive; prisoner of my thoughts/ These lyrics have kept me scribbling, this scribbling has kept me sitting, this sitting has kept me thinking; thinking that I should stop/ I keep having these expectations that maybe my time is coming/ or maybe I’ll never make it, I’m wasting my life with rhyming/ Mafikeng has never left me. I promised I’d never leave them/ They told me they’d always catch me, I really wanna believe them/ but I’m back, and even though I been so quiet/ I only feature with niggas that we co-sign/ You hear the rumbling seas. You hear the rustling trees/ Guess there’s no trouble to see, what is coming is me/ ‘G-C, where’s that album we been dying to hear?’/ I been working to make it perfect but it’s finally here/ It’s been the final countdown, tick tock, now it’s time up/ After I drop Celebrity watch this bitch light up
Verse 2 [JayCubed]
I’m still up while everybody is passed out/ Money on these bars, I think it’s time I cashed out/
See, I milk my day for what it’s worth so I’m cash cow/ flow’s intoxicating, that’s why they blacked out/
The passion burning from inside is never turned out/ and I spit so hot, the haters swear that I’mma burn out/
You see, they can’t say they’re surprised at how I turned out/ because the ego and the cockyness is already earned now.
Amazing though, after all of the blazing flows/ that I scorched and I sprayed at you, they still pretend like they don’t know/
(But I) I made it known/ that I’ve climbed and I made it so/ I want all of the grace and glory/ they’ve given to everybody/
(and Uhm) I’m not trying to be anybody/ Schizophrenic behaviour and flow, you niggas barely know me/
I keep ‘em working, your doctors do-little like Eddy Murphy/ (open wide) You put this in your mouth, so my time- you can make it worth it/
To all the lyricists, I need you all to RISE UP/
Tilt up your head, you gon’ see a nigga HIGH UP/
Before I step on stage, you need to turn my MIC UP/
Coz when I do, you gon’ see all the faces LIGHT UP!!!
