  • I don't know what what life will be in H.I.P.
    H.O.P. without the boy H.O.V.
    Not only NYC, I'm hip hop's savior
    So after this flow you might owe me a favor

    When Kingdom come, you ready?
    The king will come, I'm ready
    I'm ready

    Now everywhere I go, they like Hovi back
    Up out the corner office of cul-de-sac
    Where's Iceberg Slim? He was the coldest cat
    Get your swag back, daddy; where your focus at?
    Got to admit a lil' bit, I was sick of rap
    But despite that the boy is back
    And I'm so evolved, I'm so involved
    I'm showin' growth, I'm so in charge
    I'm CEO and, yeah, goin' God
    I'm so indebted I should of been debted
    Sellin' blow in the park, this is knowin' my heart
    Now I'm so enlightened I might glow in the dark
    I been up in the office you might know him as Clark
    Just when you thought the whole world fell apart, I
    Take off the blazer, loosen up the tie
    Step inside the booth, Superman is alive

    (I will be) king of New York
    (I will be) New York
    Not only NYC, I'm hip hop's savior
    So after this flow you might owe me a favor
    When Kingdom come, you ready?
    When Kingdom come, uh-huh
    Not only NYC, I'm hip hop's savior
    So after this flow you might owe me a favor

    I hear 'Hurry up, Hov' when I'm out in the public
    These niggas like that you love it, you be it, you're of it
    You breathe it, we need it, bring it back for the hustlers
    Have you dust off the hammer, dance, can't touch this
    C'mon, playboys, bring your cars back out
    Cause your boy Hov is back, you know them broads coming out
    Got 'em dancin' on the banquet like they from Bankhead
    Fuck crystal so they ask what we drinking
    I thought dudes were marquess rudoque
    So I moved on to dom and crew rose
    And it's much bigger issues in the world I know
    But I first had to take care of the world I know
    I'm from the bottom, so I still feel I'm from the bottom
    Underdog before my cake and still couldn't stop him
    Flash Gordon bring my cords and spark the light in the dark
    Peter Parker, Spider-Man, all I do is climb the charts

    (I will be) king of New York
    (I will be) New York
    Not only NYC, I'm hip hop's savior
    So after this flow you might owe me a favor
    When Kingdom come, you ready?
    When Kingdom come, uh-huh
    Not only NYC, I'm hip hop's savior
    So after this flow you might owe me a favor

    Just when they thought it was all over
    I put the whole world on my back in broad shoulders the ball hover
    Who you know took over tracks like that?
    Guess what, New York, New York we back
    And I ain't never been afraid of a drought
    Since I was 6 17 they gettin' money down south
    'Bout it, 'bout it Master P
    Ask the nigga Pimp C, ask my homie Bun B
    I run the streets, the streets don't run we
    Y'all run, we chill, still waters run deep
    I repeat, sing along with me
    I run the streets, the streets don't run we
    Ladies sayin' where you been, Superman
    When niggas spendin' ten million and media on my hands
    The Bruce Wayne of the game have no fear
    When you need me just throw your Roc signs in the air, yeah

    (I will be) king of New York
    (I will be) New York
    Not only NYC, I'm hip hop's savior
    So after this flow you might owe me a favor
    When Kingdom come, you ready?
    When Kingdom come, uh-huh
    Not only NYC, I'm hip hop's savior
    So after this flow you might owe me a favor Writer/s: Alonzo Herbert Miller, Lawrence Parker, Rick James, Shawn C. Carter

  • Se7 from Pomona, CaWow... okay, look. NO Jay is NOT talking about the "next life time".. *shakes head* He is infact refering to the Graphic Novel "Kingdom Come" in which Superman comes bacc to earth and subsequently saves the world... now, comparitavely speaking, Jay is sayin that, after returning from his self imposed exile, he is now bacc to save the rap world from its self... Facts to support this statement:.. well, for one the names are the same... the story is the same and lastly the superhero lines in the song, most noteably "take off the blazer, loosen up the tie, step inside the booth, Superman is ALIVE"

    a fucc up on jayz behalf however is that Spiderman is a Marvel character.. not DC.

    and dont let the rhetoric fool you... im a blacc man who LOVES hip hop and knowledge.
