Rakim - The 18th Letter

rate me


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)
