Dis Generation

Album: We Got It from Here... Thank You 4 Your Service (2016)
  • Handle rocks with the capital G, ball on the beat
    Status, Chris Paul and John Wall in the league
    Grabbin' mics till the knuckles would bleed, 'cause I believe
    The potent that I'm quoting will have you geeked like speed
    If rationale is naturale or a weave
    It's all edges and peas
    Settin' press, we on a permanent steez
    I'm in a world where my princess is Leia
    And she feeling my Vader
    And my lure grows greater and greater
    Chem trails droppin' poisonous vapors
    Have you shaking like gator
    Been trill, nigga, process the data
    Blu-ray wave file or a beta, I'll DVR for later
    Kappo Massa with my G to my waiter
    You can't define us, XY us, or Z us, you generational
    Elitists have your chi in virtual think pieces
    See, these written words are poetical science, brains defiant
    Thoughts heavy, baby, they're a major appliance
    Leave a dent when dropping the flyness, fluent giant
    Dude's nice, he tight, screwed in with some pliers
    Cool with some buyers, yeah, nigga, cool with some growers
    Never no tattletales, only I don't knowers
    We a show me generation, show us what you gon' show us
    So listen, mami, see we could collude with a boing
    Mouthpiece like Goins, with a jubilant noise
    Dude's rude and as useless as coins, shoot 'em boys
    Versed in, rehearsed in the soothing of loins
    Talk to Joey, Earl, Kendrick, and Cole, gatekeepers of flow
    They are extensions of instinctual soul
    It's the highest in commodity grade and you could get it today

    Dis generation
    Rules di nation

    One hiting reading pages of Poe
    Telly is low, cuddle bunny ready to go
    Day of the dead, bury all the zombies instead
    And it's just your aftermath, Busta cutting your dreads
    Bruce Lee'in niggas, while y'all niggas UFC
    Smoke tree on niggas, sizzle out your USB
    Surge pricin' on these Ubers, I'mma get me a cab
    Yo, where Jarobi at?
    Imbibing on impeccable grass
    I be in NYC waiting for that law to pass
    Past shit been waiting for a Jet's title since last
    Richard Todd, Todd Bowles, gang green on that ass
    Magic Mike on the mic, David Blaine, Douglas Henning
    In the church of Busta Rhymes it's my sermon you're getting
    Horizontal spittin', I'm the exorcist of your writtens
    Don't interrupt me, nigga
    Sorry, that's a sin unforgiven
    Like how we be skipping on beats like cooking crack in the kitchen
    Wait
    Just spit the package, dry it bag up the wet
    This mad city's not a game, easy, quiet on set
    Phife, student of the past, trailblazing a daze
    Not acknowledging a trend or swept up in a phase
    We still the highest of commodity grade, and you could get it get it get it get it today

    Dis generation
    Rules di nation

    This is our generation, generation, ah
    This our generation, generation, ah
    This our generation, generation, ah Writer/s: Fitzroy Simpson, George Bennett, Huford Brown, Jackie Mittoo, Jarobi White, Kamaal Fareed, Leroy Sibblis, Lloyd Ferguson, Luis Alberto Spinetta, Malik Izaak Taylor, Robert Lyn, Trevor Smith
