  • You know they be asking 'bout Common, where he at?
    What that man doing now?
    I'm doing what I do, Hip-Hop
    That's what I do

    How can I say this, fuck it I'm the greatest
    I am the A-list for all these great debaters
    A lot of ya'll nah nah, forgot now who I am
    The '87 nigga used to rah rah in the jam
    Aw yeah, we put them things in the air
    When I drop a single, it's really like a pair
    Of Air Jordans, important to the culture
    If you ain't true to it, cállate la boca
    Get my drink on like a coaster
    Post up on the wall that Mike used to live off
    Hip-hop Master Cleansin', I'mma get my shit off
    Rollin' in a Maserati Gran with the lid off
    I bit all like a monster, live nigga this is my encore
    Encore, encore, I rhyme for the commoners
    My name synonymous with prominence
    I'm to Hip-Hop what Obama is to politics
    Common is

    Yeah, man
    Y'all niggas man, you soft muthafuckers
    Yeah my man, muthafucker
    Then come around my crib
    You know where I'm from
    Some ho ass niggas
    Singing all around me man, la la la
    You ain't muthafucking Frank Sinatra
    Uh, lil' bitch
    Yeah, this the raw right here
    This the raw right here nigga
    Sweet muthafucka
    Sweet ass bitch muthafucka

    Wa da da da, wa dada dada dang
    The C-O double-M O-N, I'm not playin'
    Da da man at work, I make my own lane
    I'm the franchise so I rock my own chain
    No I said give 'em that 80?s cocaine
    Somethin' raw, something pure so I stayed in that vein
    The hero that he know, that he cold
    Like when it's below in the Geo, wipe ya feet off in the Regal
    I'm king, observe the throne and the dream
    I have it, supreme like mathematics
    Yeah, I rep the fresh air for you asthmatic rap addicts
    Pro black magic, this is semi-automatic
    Rap we won't jam in traffic
    The game need direction, I'm here to map it
    Uh, some people say that they be missing creativity
    But when it come to hip-hop, it begins and ends with me

    You know man, you should know where I come from
    You should know who I am nigga
    You should never wanna go against me
    You know man, you too soft for that man
    I be seeing you man, I see it in your eyes man
    You ain't the type of nigga that could go against me
    You get in my presence you gon' feel like a little ho
    You ain't a man yet, you tryna be somebody else
    Man, be yourself man, you come around my crib, you get your shit took
    Huh! Wherever you go, you probably be overseas in Europe and get yo shit took
    You's a ho, you know you sweet
    Ain't nothing you can do man, people see that man
    Broads be seeing you sweet
    Done wit' you muthafuckas, it's over for you
    It's over for you
    It's over, sweet muthafucka Writer/s: ERNEST WILSON, JET SAMPLE, LONNIE RASHID LYNN
