The Becoming (Explicit Version) Lyrics

The Becoming (形成) (Explicit Version) - Little Brother

I went from niggaz tellin' me

I really shouldn't rhyme

To droppin' a classic album muhf**kers couldn't find

Took my respect

Took lessons and took the time

And if you want a success story

Just take a look at mine

I was blessed with the right components

So precise

'Cause I write so tight within the moment

And spit like my life depended on it

I target you herbs

On some teleprompter sh*t

I got you watching your words

Tay rhymes are real life

Yours are so 'For instance'

Taxin' these niggaz like no dependents

12 bar courtroom drama with no co-defendants

Don't beat it off

Come to your senses

You know

Ni**a

Hard rock

My block is where you better be from

Top of the line

My team will never settle for crumbs

And he's hated

But still rated 2nd to none

I'm everything you wanna be but have yet to become

It all started back in '99 when time was hard

North Carolina Central but we called it the yard

'Cause niggaz wasn't trying to study abroad

They was trynna study a broad

Or two ir three up in the dorms

Met my ni**a Chaundon and I started to ponder

F**k this

I'mma quit the football team tomorrow

Did shows around town

And word got around that battling Tay

Was like yelling 'spic' in Tijuana

Build my rep up

That's when Pooh and 9th stepped up

9th was old school

Pooh was young and playing catch up

Cool

'Cause he could still rock an instrumental

Our first joints

Yeah they was wack

But niggaz could hear potential in 'em

Honing our skills for survival

Hustling

Our flyers passed out like mamma at revival

 

The real deal on how I repped my peeps

You ain't goin' find this in no press release

 

Hard rock

My block is where you better be from

Top of the line

My team will never settle for crumbs

And he's hated

But still rated 2nd to none

I'm everything you wanna be but have yet to become

And he's shook

That's what your team is telling me

Son

Still hated

But still rated 2nd to none

And Greensboro 'cause that's the only 'boro I'm from

I'm everything you wanna be

But have yet to become
