  • Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Let the boys be boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Make noise b-boys

    Well, it's another one, in the gutter one, ghetto running 'em
    Troublesome, extra double dumb, I come to beat 'em
    Defeat 'em and mistreat 'em, so what if that I'm cheating?
    Now everybody wanna sound grimy (yeah, I know)
    I'ma show you how, come on, all in together now
    Yeah, oh, yeah, yeah, that's how it gotta be
    So stop trying to be loud as me 'cause you can't do that
    Think about it, playing Russian roulette with an automatic
    I bet my ass against the line the last bullet's first on line
    Stab and step and repping and run, packing a weapon is wild
    Peace to the brother's on Rikers Isl'
    Tough enough and trembling, blend in like a chameleon
    Buck, bye tough guy, oh my God, I'm so high
    'Cause they say I rhyme, they say I look like a gremlin
    But what does it take to make a kid make a million children slam?

    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Let the boys be boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Make noise b-boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Let the boys be boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Make noise b-boys

    I'm the nitty, nasty, gritty smashing, never slow gassing
    Strictly swift blast of the raspy-rasp fashion
    That I provide, I abide the USG
    Besides the ghetto vibe make me flip like Jekyll and Hyde
    Of course, I come across with the pure
    For sure, unadulterated uncut raw
    Disgusted, busted, you wanna touch it, too hot
    You forgot, you're not ready, your head could get ruptured
    Hit between the eyes, I plan to vandalize
    I supply the static, I run with the bad guys
    The villains, crooks, highlighters and the fighters
    See the big black picture if you look inside of my mind
    It's graphic, expressed it drastic
    So kill the copycat act, kid, it's all mastered
    Directed it when y'all least expected it
    And thought it was safe, Onyx hit you in the face, so

    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Let the boys be boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Make noise b-boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Let the boys be boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Make noise b-boys

    I'm a b-boy, standing in my b-boy stance
    Hurry up and give me the microphone before I bust in my pants
    The mad author of anguish, my language polluted
    Onyx is heavyweight and still undisputed
    You took the words right out my mouth now walk a mile in my shoes
    I paid so many dues, I feel used and abused and I'm so confused
    Umm, excuse me, for example, I'm an inspiration of a whole generation
    And unless you got ten sticky fingers, it's an imitation
    A figment of your imagination
    Bu-bu-bu-but, wait, it gets worse
    I'm not watered down, so I'm dying of thirst
    Coming through with a scam, foolproof plan
    B-boys make some noise, and just, just slam

    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Make noise b-boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Let the boys be boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Make noise b-boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Make noise b-boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Let the boys be boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Let the boys be boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Make noise b-boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Let the boys be boys
    Slam, da duh duh, da duh duh
    Make noise b-boys
    Slam
