  • Yo, it's time for me to pump the volume
    No problem, the record's revolvin'
    Evil's the mixer, I'm the rap trickster
    Paparazzi on the bum rush for pictures
    Ice, coolin', yo colder than ever
    Punk executioner, E pull the lever
    Rotate the wax, then cut and axe the tracks
    Push up the levels 'til the red lights max
    Don't try to size up, you better wise up
    To the rap criminals, we're on the rise up
    We're sellin' dope 'til we're succeeded
    Dope beats and lyrics, no beepers needed
    For this drug deal, I'm the big wheel
    The dope I'm sellin', you don't smoke, you feel
    Out on the dance floor, on my world tour
    I'm sellin' dope in each and every record store
    I'm the king pin when the wax spins
    Crack or smack will take you to a sure end
    You don't need it, just throw that stuff away
    You wanna get high? Let the record play

    I know you're lovin' this drugs as it's comin' out your speaker
    Bass through the bottoms, highs through the tweeters
    But this base you don't need a pipe
    Just a tempo to keep you hype
    Groovin' like I see you doin'
    Some stupid crack would just ruin
    Your natural high, why? That ain't fly
    And anyone who says it is, lies
    Move like I knew you would, like I knew could
    And if you ain't cracked out, then I know you should
    Be able to give me a clap, to match exact with the track
    And since I know that you ain't, I expect that
    Oh now this jam is lit, it's like the ultimate
    People high off dope but still physically fit
    I'll make a million bucks, pack my dough in trucks
    From sellin' dope beats, dope rhymes, dope cuts
    I'll be the biggest dope dealer in history
    Because all the fly will be high off that Ice-T

    I'll bring it to boil, Evil E rock it up
    You want in? I don't think you got enough
    Last suckers crossed, Syndicate shot'em up
    Cops found'em in the lake bottom up
    I don't play when it comes to my dope
    I check my lyrics close, like with a microscope
    I don't clean'em up with no Ivory soap
    I leave'em hard and pure, hope that you can cope
    'Cause you might O.D. if you overdrive
    This record, tape or CD, because the sound I've
    Created on this wax is like a chemical
    And the knowledge I give, makes me invincible

    The cops don't know what to do because my dope breaks through
    No matter what they do, my stuff gets to you
    Kickin' on the Boulevard, my tempo's hyped and hard
    I don't ask, the ICE just bogards
    Sire Records puts me out, with Warner Bros. clout
    My dope hits the streets with no doubt
    Evil E adds the cut then removes it
    IZ checks for purity, then approves it
    And then you get it, try it and like it
    And if it ain't potent, we remix it and spike it
    To bring you the pure dope, not a noose in a rope
    Because if you're doin' crack, you're on death row
    You're just a toy punk, to mess with that junk
    You want some real dope come look in my trunk
    The dope I'm sellin' is life, 100% legit
    So get real fool and try some real hit Writer/s: AFRIKA ISLAM, CURTIS MAYFIELD, TRACY LAUREN MARROW
