    Follow me into a solo
    Get in the flow - and you can picture like a photo
    Music mixed mellow maintains to make
    Melodies for MC's motivates the breaks
    I'm everlastin, I can go on for days and days
    With rhyme displays that engrave deep as X-rays
    I can take a phrase that's rarely heard, FLIP IT
    Now it's a daily word
    I can get iller than 'Nam, a killin bomb
    But no alarm - Rakim will remain calm
    Self-esteem make me super superb and supreme
    But for a microphone still I fiend
    This was a tape I wasn't supposed to break
    I was supposed to wait, but let's motivate
    I want to see who can keep followin and swallowin
    Takin the making, bitin it and borrowin
    Brothers tried and others died to get the formula
    But I'ma let ya sweat - you still ain't warm
    You a step away from frozen, stiff as if ya posin
    Dig into my brain as the rhyme gets chosen
    So follow me and were ya thinkin' you were first?
    Let's travel at magnificent speeds around the Universe
    What could ya say as the Earth gets further and further away
    Planets are small as balls of clay
    Astray into the Milky Way - world's outasight
    Far as the eye can see - not even a satellite
    Now stop and turn around and look
    As ya stare in the darkness, ya knowledge is took!
    So keep starin soon ya suddenly see a star
    You better follow it cause it's the R
    This is a lesson if ya guessin and if ya borrowin
    Hurry hurry step right up and keep followin
    The Leader

    Verse Two:

    This is a lifetime mission, vision of prison
    Aight listen
    In this journey you're the journal I'm the journalist
    Am I Eternal? Or an eternalist?
    I'm about to flow long as I can possibly go
    Keep ya movin cause the crowd said so
    Dance - cuts rip ya pants
    Eric B on the blades, bleedin to death - call the ambulance
    Pull out my weapon and start to squeeze
    A magnum as a microphone murderin' MC's
    Let's quote a rhyme from a record I wrote
    (follow the leader) Yeah - dope
    Cause everytime I stop it seems ya stuck
    Soon as ya try to step off ya self-destruct
    I came to overcome before I'm gone
    By showin and provin and lettin knowledge be born
    Then after that I'll live forever - you disagree?
    You say never? Then follow me!
    From century to century you'll remember me
    In history - not a mystery or a memory
    God by nature, mind raised in Asia
    Since you was tricked, I have to raise ya
    From the cradle to the grave, but remember
    You're not a slave
    Cause we was put here to be much more than that
    But we couldn't see it because our mind was trapped
    But I'm here to break away the chains, take away the pains
    Remake the brains, reveal my name
    I guess nobody told you a little knowledge is dangerous
    It can't be mixed, diluted; it can't be changed or switched
    Here's a lesson if ya guessing and borrowing
    Hurry hurry, step right up and keep following
    The leader

    Verse Three:

    A furified freestyle, lyrics of fury
    My third eye makes me shine like jewelry
    You're just a rent-a-rapper, your rhymes are minute-maid
    I'll be here when it fade to watch you flip like a renegade
    I can't wait to break and eliminate
    On every traitor or snake - so stay awake
    and follow and follow, because the tempo's a trail
    The stage is a cage, the mic is a third rail
    I'm Rakim the Fiend of a Microphone
    I'm not HIM, so leave my mic alone
    Soon as the beat is felt, I'm ready to go
    So fasten your seatbelt, cause I'm about to flow
    No need to speed slow down to let the leader lead
    Word to daddy, indeed!
    The R's a rollin stone, so I'm rollin
    Directions is told, then the rhymes are stolen
    Stop buggin', a brother said, dig em, I never dug 'em
    He couldn't follow the leader long enough so I drug 'em
    into danger zone, he should arrange his own
    Face it, it's basic, erase it, change ya tone
    There's one R in the alphabet
    It's a one-letter word and it's about to get
    More complex from one rhyme to the next
    Eric B be easy on the flex
    I've been from state to state, followers tailgate
    Keep comin but you came too late, but I'll wait
    So back up, regroup, get a grip, come equipped
    You're the next contestant - clap ya hands, you won a trip!
    The price is right - don't make a deal too soon
    How many notes could you name this tune?
    Follow the Leader is the title, theme, task
    Now ya know, you don't have to ask
    Rap is Rhythm And Poetry, cuts create sound effects
    You might catch up if you follow the records E. wrecks
    Until then keep eatin and swallowin
    You better take a deep breath and keep followin
    The leader.

    The rotten Apple
    You'd be hard pressed
    to do it better
    than the microphone god
    a.k.a. the 18th letter
