Rakim - How I Get Down Lyrics



[rakim]
Before the dough camemy whole aimwas blow like propane
Control the whole domainand then show no shame
Make rappers go ? and they so lameplayin with no game
Put em on the lil plane til they can't claim no fame
I gotthe rangebetterstay in the slow lane
I make the flow change from hurricanes to a slow rain
Your thoughts are so planeI rearrange your whole frame
Until my whole name grow out your brain like rogaine
Letter by letterI put words together
Once mergedapart neverthey be heard forever
And then I grab a pen and stab him in his abdomen
And smash him inthrow his mic like a javelin
Then I explain versesthat remain on the surface
At times it get deepbut I never defeat the purpose
Never go outto go the dough routeforever hold out
I never sold outfor any amountno doubt

Chorus: rakim (repeat 2x)

That's how I get downso tell me how you like that
I hit the townhold it down on a tight track
I start a party now - everybody like rap
Haters are mad cause they gave the r the mic back

[rakim]
I like to hang where e'rythang seem to happen at (y'know? )
It's ra's habitatI'm like that czar arafat
And yes I have a gatsnap like a israeli
A terrorist I never miss blowin up kids daily
I step to writersand let my virus hurt the closest
I'm sick as hepatitis and worse than tuberculosis
Pull out a penlike a grenadeand drop it quick
I strike again and i'ma get paidexotic shit
You know the God ra behot as the mojave
Swing like king usabimy posse be kamikaze
On the corners like I'm homeless and idon't know where home is
The bonusis where the next open microphone is
Me and my teamvision like a radar screen
Intervene and yocut the mic offcause ra fiend
To show the whole world some of the things I seen
Then blow it uplike edi aminyaknahmean?

Chorus

[rakim]
I do a thang thangI write the songs they sing
Make sure that they swingfrom new york to beijing
Put your thoughts in the sling and your brain is gangrene
Pull in the ringrepeatin and sayin the same thing
Xeroxzerono matchyou ditto
Copy machinecouldn't reprint my ? ?
My new stylethat I produce now's beyond two-thou'
I knew howsince a juvenileto make a ka-pow
When the night's fallinI can hear the mic callin
I like ballinI cut back like mic jordan
This is for y'all while I'm spittin literatures
Lyrics'll ball like allen iverson dribble the ball
They hopeless - whoever approaches my high explosives
My vision sadiciousand freestyle's ferocious
I wrote thiswords flew over my head like a locust
I turned the beat upsat backand stayed focused

Chorus
