  • You on point Phife?
    Once Again Tip
    You on point Phife?
    Once Again Tip
    You on point Phife?
    Once Again Tip
    Word
    Watch me bust they shit
    OK

    Oh, you did it to me once again my friend
    I swear you do it to me everytime
    Cause you stay crazy on my mind
    Yo you got it goin on (say word), on and on and on
    On and on and on

    This is the year that I come in and just devastate
    My style is great ask your peoples can I dominate?
    My rhymes are harder than last night's erection
    Don't play me close, I'll have this mic up in your rear section
    My shit is lovely simply meaning that my joint is tight
    Amping up the mic making sure production's tight
    Sometimes I might catch a severe case of writer's block
    But by the end of the day you'll be on my jock
    My name's Malik my hobby's putting MC's to the test
    And if you front I'll put my foot up in your freaking chest
    Freestyle fanatic, and never will it ever stop
    You crew is loose, you might just want to call the cops

    Aye, yo I gotta put some action on paper
    Make sure my verse jump up and spread out like the raper
    The only tip I got for a waiter
    Is watch the doorknob hit me where the dirty dog shoulda' bit me
    That was my train of thought, but for so long I fought
    Now I'm at a level supreme to the devil
    So turn up the bass and lay low on the treble
    We be the real MC's and you dead, bring a shovel
    Revitalize, the vital Tribe nigga, WHAT?
    The ladies sweat the style like the squirrel sweat the nuts
    You know a fellas good for the moola
    Don't smoke no woolas, read the name call me Slick Tip the Ruler

    Oh, you did it to me once again my friend
    I swear you do it to me everytime
    Cause you stay crazy on my mind
    Yo you got it goin on, on and on and on
    On and on and on

    Yo I've been treading on this globe man for twenty-five joints
    Sometimes Shaitan got me by the pressure points
    But I can break a fella down like sex
    You eat Wheat Chex but still light in the ass and can't flex
    If one nigga front I'mma make more pay
    Cause tonight, we gettin off like O.J
    And yo I got a Dawg that bites, fuck the barking
    Yo I got a crew with the beats and the smarts and

    I fought my shit up on Linden in the one-nine-two
    Forever writing never biting ain't shit else to do
    Hoping to battle, but most MC's ain't ready yet
    But if they utter one word then it's as good as set
    You have MC's dropping bombs that's incredible
    Some of the brothers, their styles are just despicable
    As for me see I just do how I love to do
    Try to deny me of my props then I'll be seeing you
    Most of you suckers wanna be down for the tag along
    The freaking fame, someone tell em that this shit ain't games
    You gots to do this from your heart meaning your inner soul
    And if it's real only then will you be on a roll
    I try to stay on top my game there ain't no time to lose
    Four albums deep as a Quester but still we payin' dues
    So hear me out one time, you gots to be yourself
    Cause if you ain't yourself you end up by your freaking self
    I'm coming rugged with the Linden Boule type of slang
    And yo, we'll see who can hang yo

    You on point Tip?
    Yo once Again Phife
    You on point Tip?
    Yo once Again Phife
    You on point Tip?
    Yo once again Phife
    Ayo that kid is marvelous

    Oh, you did it to me once again my friend
    I swear you do it to me everytime
    Cause you stay crazy on my mind
    Yo you got it goin on, on and on and on
    On and on and on Writer/s: ALI SHAHEED JONES-MUHAMMAD, JAMES DEWITT YANCEY, KAMAAL IBN JOHN FAREED, MALIK IZAAK TAYLOR, STEPHEN W. SWALLOW
