    Making extravagant beats with our mouths
    as lyrical expressions are exchanmged between friends or foes.
    We don 't need no music, cuz we got so much soul.
    Take a seat in the back of the bus and be exposed.
    Empty your mind of any preconceived notions
    as you listen to unsigned hype exchange prose.

    My Mother's blessed children.
    Some rhyme while others make beats naturally.
    While people in the front crane their necks to see
    who among them is inclined rhytmically.
    We've grown into a multi-billion dollar industry
    from ghetto-dwellers boasting in the streets.
    And parks.

    And it all starts from a brother that can beat box,
    or plays drums on tabletops.
    Til the breaka dawn and you don't stop.
    Whatcha really know 'bout dat?

    Remember when they put a 10 year lifespan on rap?
    Now they want to take those words back.
    The lyrics express our emotions, our hearts beat with a scratch.

    Microphone check.
    Nowadays I grin like a proud parent when I hear
    a young brother catch wreck.
    But cast an eye on the ones that disrespect & act suspect.

    We get deep & dirty,
    diggin in the crates to back the wording.
    Goin underground to the bassment to immortalize the verbing.
    Can you feel the vibe, y'all.
    Throw your hands up high, y'all.
    Hip-Hop Hooraay!!

    I love the way you came with this...
    incorpoporating some of the most famous
    lines of flow that characterized rap,
    the hype dj and some of our fav'
    rap artist...

    you took me back...on the real

    don't know how I missed this
    the first time around...but your
    right about the 10yr life span...
    I remember but rap it just continues
    to EVOLVE...sometimes I'm
    even amazed...

    The music industry has never
    and will never be the same...

    Fam, I thank U 4 feelin' this.

    Sometimes I feel like turnin' my back on rap when I hear some of these younger cats songs, but then I listen 2 some real Hip-Hop, what they don't play on the radio, & my love is strengthened.
