Rakim - The 18th Letter Lyrics

Just when things seemed the sameand the whole scene is lame
I come and reign with the unexplained for the brains till things change
They strain to slang slingI'm trained to bring game
History that I arranged been regained by king james
Go to practicewith tacticswhen the track hitstheatrics
Women that look like actress the status of cleopatra's
Stacks of mathematics took the ? ego-a-geatics?
As I find outwhat the facts isfor geographic
No time to sip mo's with hostessnever mind what the total gross is
I rip showsstay focusedand split cheesewith soldiers
While you hit trees and coast I spit flows that be ferocious
And with these explosivesI split seas for moses
Shine permanently only my mind's concernin me
Fire burns in me eternally time's eternity
Followers turn on me they'll be in a mental infirmary
Determinely advance technology better than germany
Since the first days you know oftill the last days is over
I was always the flow-erI made waves for noah
From a compoundto the anatomyto the breakdown of a atom
Some of my rap patternsstill surround saturn
From the ancient hieroglyphicsto graffiti painted pictures
I study I know the scriptures but nowaday ain't it vicious
Date back I go beyond check the holy qu'ran
To speeches at the altar onnow we get our party on
So being benificentI bless em with dialogue
They expectinthe next testament by the god
I blow em through battlezones with chrome for chaperone
Blast beats with saxophones one of the baddest rapper's known
Every country city and boroughsidestreet and ghetto
Isle and alley and meadow theories ferile enough to echo
When it was one mass of landwith one nash' of man
And the whole mass was ran under one master plan
Since the world's metamorphisand the plan is kept in orbit
Turntables we spin off but the needles never skip off it
Rhythms we expressin similar to our ancestors
It'll answer your questions if you understand the message
From the days of the slave choppers?to the new age of prophets
As heavy as hip-hop is I'm always ready to drop it
From the mind which is one of allah's best designs
And mines'll stand the test of timewhen I rhyme

The 18th letterthe prophesy professor
I stay cleverlong as the planet stay together
Bring up praise from meccamake a phrase for the better
In new days to rememberalways and forever
(repeat 2x)
