You Cant Stop The Prophet

Jeru The Damaja1 ม.ค. 1970

Ohhh Yo look towards the darkness

Nah nah yo look towards the light

Yo what Oh what the Yo what is that

It's a supernova

Nah nah man that's a black hole

Yo Yo



Yo it's IT'S IT'S

I leap over lies in a single bound

(Who are you ) The Black Prophet

One day I got struck by Knowledge of Self

It gave me super-scientifical powers


Now I run through the ghetto

Battlin my arch nemesis Mr Ignorance

He's been tryin to take me out since the days of my youth

He feared this day would come

I'm hot on his trail but sometimes he slips away

Because he has an army they always give me trouble

Mainly - Hatred Jealousy and Envy they attack me

They think they got me

But I use my super-science and I twist all three

I see sparks over that buildin - they're shootin at me

I dip do a backflip

Then hit em in the heart with sharp steel bookmarks

Ignorance hates when I drop it

But no matter what he do he can't stop the Prophet

Yo Prophet yo Prophet c'mere real quick

Yo I just saw Ignorance downtown let me put you on

Word he down there buggin

He got them illin out they shootin and everything else

Let's continue the saga mad mad drama

I met this chick she said she knew where Ignorance was at

I said "Where " She said "Downtown"

He had babies havin babies - and young niggaz sellin crack

I think the b**ch is lyin it's a set up

I can smell it but Ignorance is runnin rampant

Aight baby show me the exact spot

Meet me at Hoyt and Schermerhorn at 3 on the dot


So I hops up on the A-Train I'm bein followed

My seventh sense senses danger

I turn around it's Anger

And he brought a mob along it's the same old song

Despair and Animosity got broke with the swiftness

I don't know what they think this is

I feel a sharp pain in my neck now I can't see I'm like Hiram

They hit me with the dart filled with the pork chop serum

I tried to hold on but before long I dropped

When I awoke I was locked in the barber's shop

Trapped in the barber's chair

Oh no they're gonna try and cut my hair

But that can't stop the Prophet

Yo Prophet

Ignorance is tired of you followin him around

We about to put an end to that RIGHT NOW

Anamosity (YEA ) Despair (YO WHASSUP ) Get him


A few minutes passed by I hear a buzzin noise

It was that chick with some of Ignorance's boys

She said "Prophet we got you beat;

By the way I'm Mr Ignorance's wife Deceit

But enough talk; now for your hair cut "

When the clippers touched my hair they blew the f**k up

After the explosion there was no one left

Cause I know Dim Mak/poison hand/touch of death

My vision's still kinda blurry but I see a clue

Ignorance is at the library

I hurry with lightning speed like The Flash

He's at the big one on Grand Army Plaz'

When I get inside the doors shut and the lights go off

Damn another trap

I hear a hissin sound I smell a funny smell

I gasp I can't breathe

Ignorance is laughin at me

Waitin on my downfall but he can't stop the Prophet


Well Prophet

It seems like you're in a bit of a jam

I hope you can unstick yourself

Oh and what you did to my wife it was nothing

I have others

Hahahahahaha hahahahaha hahahahahah
