​The Format

This song is by AZ and appears on the album The Format (2006).

I'm ready
You know the chronicles the shit that if momma knew
The stress, the drama dude, the tech's phenomenal
Rapid fire, pecs through the adominal
You bastard liars, it's me who's the honorable
Bathed and clothed up, shaved and close-cut
Restraint from temptation was drained from both nuts
Heh! Now in the physical form verbalized through the scriptures; I was Biblically born
It's I, a Jeremiah, conceived through the blunt fire
On Kawasakis, could wheelie up on one tire
Well respected, gel connected, got the method for the woody females perfected
For sure, very few flaws, heavy Chevy two doors
Candy-painted to give a nigga the blue balls
'Course, this the life I chose
The bid, the 360, the cipher's closed, c'mon

The format is real sickening, contagious
Here I come, AZ
Still, I don't have to run no games--I've done those thangs

Young and gifted, my tongue's prolific
In the beach bungalow is how I brought in Christmas
From the streets, I'ma flow from the hungriest districts
Switch kicks, crisp when I come to them picnics
Play it slow, paper chase, stack, and lay low
Range Rove, tinted all black, the same old
Psychic mind, writes his rhymes
Still turn the new leaf on my life of crime
No concerns with new beef who's as nice as I am
It's confirmed from feet--I'm still a sniper blind
Built my fame, spilled my pain
Politicking daily--still tryn to milk the game
Its obvious that I'm real, rap skills remain
I took some change and I'm still the same

The format is real sickening, contagious
Here I come, AZ
Still, I don't have to run no games--I've done those thangs

Learned the system, burned some izm
Jotted my jewels down like journalism
How I maneuve', now it emerged through wisdom
A pilgrim prophesied, puttin' words to rhythm
Relatin', an Adam Clayton in manifestation
Patient, meditatin' with them animals waitin'
Pacin', like an M-8 that sealed its fate
Let some years escape, but I'm still in shape--I'm Chillin'
Deeply rooted, a beast with music
From Bed Stuy to the East, I'm too at peace to lose it
But love it, I still does it
Breathin off a Trump budget
Fresh outa Bloomie's with the Louis luggage

The format is real sickening, contagious
Here I come, AZ
Still, I don't have to run no games I've done those thangs
