Song Lyrics

[speaking softly, gradually getting louder]

One time.. yeah.. yeah..

Yo, all I need is one mic, one beat, one stage

One n*gga front, my face on the front page

Only if I had one gun, one girl and one crib

One God to show me how to do things his son did

Pure, like a cup of v*rgin blood; mixed with

151, one sip`ll make a n*gga flip

Writin names on my hollow tips, plottin sh*t

Mad violence who I`m gon` body, this hood politics

Ackowledge it, leave bodies chopped in garbages

Seeds watch us, grow up and try to follow us

Police watch us {*siren*} roll up and try knockin us

One knee I ducked, could it be my time is up

But my luck, I got up, the cop shot again

Bus stop glass bursts, a fiend drops his Heineken

Richochetin between the spots that I`m hidin in

Blackin out as I shoot back, f**k gettin hit! [more sirens]

This is my hood I`ma rep, to the death of it

`til everybody come home, little n*ggaz is grown

Hoodrats, don`t abortion your womb, we need more warriors soon

Sip from the star sun and the moon

In this life of police chases street sweepers and coppers

Stick-up kids with no conscience, leavin victims with doctors

IF YOU REALLY THINK YOU READY TO DIE, WITH NINES OUT

THIS IS WHAT NAS IS BOUT, n*gga THE TIME IS NOW!

[whispering again]

Yo, all I need is one mic..

All I need is one mic.. that`s all I need

All I need is one mic.. all I need n*ggaz

All I need is one mic.. yeah

[gradually getting louder]

All I need is one blunt, one page, and one pen

One prayer - tell God forgive for one sin

Matter fact maybe more than one, look back

at all the hatred against me, f**k alla them

Jesus died at age 33, there`s thirty-three shots

from twin glocks there`s sixteen apiece, that`s thirty-two

Which means, one of my guns was holdin 17

Twenty-seven hit your crew, six went into you

Everybody gotta die sometime; hope your funeral

never gets shot up, bullets tear through the innocent

Nothin is fair, n*ggaz roll up, shootin from wheelchairs

My heart is racin, tastin revenge in the air

I let the sh*t slide for too many years, too many times

Now I`m strapped with a couple of macs, too many nines

If y`all n*ggaz really wit me get busy load up the semis

Do more than just hold it explode the clip until you empty

There`s nothin in our way - they bust, we bust, they rust, we rust

Led flyin, feel it? I feel it in my gut

THAT WE TAKE THESE b*tchES TO WAR, LIE `EM DOWN

CAUSE WE STRONGER NOW MY n*gga THE TIME IS NOW!!

[whispering again]

All I need is one mic.. that`s all I need, that`s all I need

All I need is one mic.. there`s nuttin else in the world

All I need is one mic.. that`s all a n*gga need to do his thing y`know

All I need is one mic..

[starting loud this time, getting quieter]

ALL I NEED IS ONE LIFE, ONE TRY, ONE BREATH I`M ONE MAN

WHAT I STAND FOR SPEAKS FOR ITSELF, THEY DON`T UNDERSTAND

Or wanna see me on top, too egotistical

Talkin all that slick sh*t, the same way these b*tches do

Wonder what my secrets is, n*ggaz`ll move on you

only if they know, what your weakness is I have none

Too late to grab guns I`m blastin cause I`m a cool n*gga

Thought I wouldn`t have that ass done? Fooled you n*ggaz

What you call a infinite brawl, eternal souls clashin

War gets deep, some beef is everlastin

Complete with thick scars, brothers knifin each other

up in prison yards, drama, where does it start?

You know the block was ill as a youngster

Every night it was like a, cop would get killed body found in the dumpster

For real a hustler, purchased my Range, n*ggaz throwin dirt on my name

Jealous cause fiends got they work and complain

b*tches left me cause they thought I was finished

Shoulda knew she wasn`t true she came to me when her man caught a sentence

Diamonds are blindin, I never make the same mistakes

Movin with a change of pace, lighter load, see now the king is straight

Swellin my melon cause none of these n*ggaz real

Heard he was, tellin police, how can a kingpin squeal?

This is crazy, I`m on the right track I`m finally found

You need some soul searchin, the time is now

All I need is one mic.. yeah, yeah yeah yeah

All I need is one mic.. that`s all I ever needed in this world, f**k cash

All I need is one mic.. f**k the cars, the jewelry

All I need is one mic.. to spread my voice to the whole world
