  • Yeah, Yeah! Check it
    Yeah!

    Now I'm in the 9th inning
    Thought I fell off, I ain't quite finished
    Yeah, I'm 'bout to put my foot in it
    Talk wit' it, walk wit' it, I'm no gimmick
    (Yeah!) Twenty twelve, there be no games
    Real rap, real bars, I'm not playin'
    Haters y'all lame, you a Missy fan
    I'm a beast in the booth, I'm just sayin'
    (Yeah!) I make 'em wanna get low
    Duck wit' it, buck wit' it, let's go
    Every time I spit a rhyme, it's a sick flow
    You newcomers better sit back and take notes
    (Yeah!) This here my time
    Here I come, better run, take what's mine
    'Bout to let off like a Tec 9 (Brat!)
    This rhyme gon' make 'em push rewind
    (Yeah!) Yeah, I'm so hot
    Up on the charts, number one spot
    See me when I drop and I won't flop
    Missy never stop, got the music game on lock
    (Yeah!) Wanna get served?
    You third, you second, but I come first
    Flip my verse like I flip birds
    I'm fiya! Yes sir

    We hit makin', hit breakin'
    Party shakin', innovator
    Groundbreakin', sole creator
    We be the most anticipated
    Hit makin', hit breakin'
    Party shakin', innovator
    Groundbreakin', sole creator
    We be the most anticipated

    Hey yo, Timbaland!
    They thought it was over!
    We on that next shit!
    They're back! What!

    Now I'm in the 9th inning
    Niggas think I fail when I'm still winnin'
    So I been gone for a hot minute
    I love this shit, that's why I got a gift in it
    (Yeah!) Fuck nigga, get fly
    Nigga can't talk wit' a gun in the mouth
    Niggas bitch up, bet they run in the house
    I can smell bullshit when they walk by
    (Yeah!) Heard that old saying, yo
    Never ever cross a one day, give ya most
    Never ever act funny for the white folks
    I'm a big fisherman when you a tadpole
    (Yeah!) or like Lady Ga' (Gaga)
    Why you let a nigga do ya whole album?
    Where you think that fake producer got ya style from?
    Come fuck witta nigga, watch the outcome
    (Yeah!) Ain't no real artists
    Whack talent get in real starvin
    All you hear in music is the chorus
    Well that's okay, Timmy back in the story

    We hit makin', hit breakin'
    Party shakin', innovator
    Groundbreakin', sole creator
    We be the most anticipated
    Hit makin', hit breakin'
    Party shakin', innovator
    Groundbreakin', sole creator
    We be the most anticipated

    Down to the 9th inning
    I'm the real deal, y'all pretendin'
    Years later, my songs still spinnin'
    I do record deals no less than ten milli'
    (Yeah!) My hits be yay long
    My songs go on like a marathon
    Get ghost, get gone, you a dum-dum
    Better 'round here, come on biters like a python
    (Yeah!) Wanna act fly?
    Wanna act like you better than the M-I
    Shakin' 'em, bakin' 'em all like a bean pie
    Takin' 'em, burnin' 'em down like I'm Left Eye
    (Yeah!) Futuristic
    Y'all can pack it up, I done ripped it
    When you say my name, call me Miss Bitch
    I make the next chick run to the exit
    (Yeah!) Yeah, yeah I got a sick sense
    I'm makin' this a movie like a Netflix
    I'm on the guest list, on the check list
    I'm the fliest chick, now tell me who the best is!
    (Yeah!) Elliott be the name
    Elliott back in the game
    Elliott hit it wit' a bang
    Bring the hook back in, Timbaland

    We hit makin', hit breakin'
    Party shakin', innovator
    Groundbreakin', sole creator
    We be the most anticipated
    Hit makin', hit breakin'
    Party shakin', innovator
    Groundbreakin', sole creator
    We be the most anticipated

    And if you want a hit? Maybe we'll return ya call
    Don't call collect
