Word Is Born



Let's begin to talk

1990 and this is what's goin' on

To the break of dawn

24/7 Run D M C in effect that's warning

All those weak rhymin' rewindin' MC's


That means you pause

My word is born

Yeah speakin' on truth

From the old school on down to the youth

Since the days that I was the age of

Three stop listen to me

This is how it used to be go

Stand on another line why

You did a crime now the time is mine

I school you and your crew why

You'se is my brother

Stop sellin' and killin' one another


Take some time to see what's missin'

Brothers in the we on a mission

Thinkin' back from the sale you made

And back home a grave is what your brother paid

His life because of a system

Now you think you're down you cold dissed him

Shut up 'cause I'm fed up with this culture

And flyin' high in the sky a big vulture

Waitin' and debatin' to see who's next

For brothers and sisters of the opposite sex

So hold on keep it intact

And go on flow on positive black

B boys be black be proud right on

You know we're bout to be black and my word is born


My word is born

My word is born

My word is born

Let's let's let's begin to talk truth it seems

That y'all make a big out of things that are small

We all play the same game for fame to claim

Bright lights and write your name

They'll soup you up 'til you think you're large

Got a spot on tour but I'm still in charge

A big ni**a's hittin' it don't renege

Bust a rap like a cap like a snap of twig

That extends from the hands of a branch on a tree

Like you new jack rappers run from me

I got proof of truth I cut and go raw

Word 'em up D my word is born



And ain't nuttin' changed punk
