[Intro: Abstract Rude]

Ugh, ugh, Living Legends

Ugh ugh, Ab Rude

Mass Men, another West Coast connect

From L.A. to the Bay bwoy

We ain't just bout it, y'all hear about it

Ugh ugh, when you hear about it, when you hear about it

And so it was said

People remember the Legends

And as it was read

Masses of men get the message

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the cities of the Bay

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the city of L.A.

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the cities of the Bay

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the city of L.A.

And so it was said, and created affirmative

Born rappin, German, they fertilised amino acids

Matter with mass, intricate plot

That or just ask infinite questions in a scientific melting pot

As it was read, when activated a new permanent

geographic, made it possible to inhabit

Thieves of air, water of blood, livin off the land

Grown from the mud, thoughts of a man

are the building blocks of pyramid Egyptian

Stone wall inscriptions that told all of myths and mythology

Depictions and prophecy, crucifixion and casualty

Communication by telepathy

Exceptionally gifted, man lifted his mental existence

Went to the distance, geometric inches

of math, he clinches his nostalgic pass

Underground fossils found in solid rock

Evolution of the mind, look at precision of the tool of the trade

Decisions of a fool never made

The revolution of rhyme is like when man started talkin

Somethin new to hear, ears hawkin by choice

The voice of hip hop, Mother Earth, generation X

I know what I'm sayin so some next, but you gon' hear about it

And so it was said

People remember the Legends

And as it was read

Masses of men get the message

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the city of the Bay

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the city of L.A.

People remember the Legends

And as it was read

Masses of men get the message

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the cities of the Bay

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the city of L.A.

[Living Legends]

Now could I join, both sides of a coin forming one whole?

Warning one's soul that this power is too swole

to be reckoned with, effective, give the respect where it's due

I live like I know so expect that I do the true

test of my talents, living by my word, speech balance

while my actions have em latching on like velcro

Conceited? Hell no, I be, seated in the front row

of your lecture, I betcha, if you have somethin to learn me

Earn the attention, test my retention, and best my intention

is to be great, recognise or be late

to the function, gathered in conjunction with my folks

Up and down the coast, we toast, to tightness

Ignite this flame, recite this game back, apply it if I came wack

Deny it or riot, quiet, on full volume

You're all tuned in, when the time's right

Grab the rippy now but you can't hear me, there's no limelight

I gather up my style, bounce flip it, bubble off and rip it

Come equipped and ship it out for you to hear about

Have you heard about the time the man slept, and crept up in cotton?

Visualisin such a mysterious movie of a life

I lived it twice before I entered

Remembered as a superhuman, inventions I invented

The thought of not, I'm bendin the rules I's meanted

Content with the life without politician's decisions

makin my dimension an unstable form

A habituation, watchin us, you know just waitin

for a chance to get inside, the centre of divine

Principles, it's his to pull yourself, OUT

when you're sunk below your chin, the light - it never ends

no matter where it has begun

A millennium of sights to see before the rays of the sun

I'm knowin how long it shall be glowin

Shall I continue showin y'all

the lighter side from the shadows where they seem to hide

Revitalisin with a rhyme that abides by the soul

that resides behind the focus of my eyes glow

A legendary myth that carries the gift of surprise though

[Ab Rude] And you hear about it, and you hear about it

And so it was said

People remember the Legends

And as it was read

Masses of men get the message

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the city of the Bay

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the city of L.A.

And so it was said

People remember the Legends

And as it was read

Masses of men get the message

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the city of the Bay

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the city of L.A.

[Living Legends]

It's the crystal method, see through evidences at hand

Standin across two properties, eye of the perfect detective

Vision's reflective at attention, my invention

Something from a time you have endured, subdued, by ghost in tune

To most they only feel the full moon, they parked outside

In the world we live in, give in to the signal, they sinkin

Depths are driven to drive into a pole, enter your soul

The soul has risen, partake on a mission

Moon Apocalypse, Now they see the picture, ??? pass the mixture

To fix the future, elixir with a suture

Mutations fade to inner ???, the name is Melancholy

Walk with a frown when the fall leaves falling

My answering machine when they're calling, sounds across the washroom

Clean your face for the dirty looks you pass are scrappy

Bury the negativity, for it's affecting me gravity

Physically, Cali, heavenly, let me be

[Abstract Rude]

People remember the Legends

And as it was read

Masses of men get the message

When you livin in the city of the Bay

When you livin in the city of L.A.

And so it was said

Masses of men get the message

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the city of the Bay

When you livin in the city of L.A.

[Outro: Abstract Rude]

And you hear about it

In the cities of the Bay

(And you hear about it)

When you livin in the city of L.A.

Living Legends in the city of the Bay

Mass Men in the city of L.A.

People remember the Legends

People remember the Legends

Masses of men get the message

Masses of men get the message

You livin in the city of the Bay

When you livin in the city of L.A.

(Frisco) Living Legends in the city of the Bay

(South Central) Mass Men in the city of L.A.

(Fresno!) Ab Rude (Oakland) Aesop (Make it funky)

Pharoahe Monch, Eligh, ugh

(Inglewood) Another West Coast connect, ya heard fool, ugh

Vallejo, Richmond, Wotts

L.A. to the Bay
