Groundbreaking

This song is by GZA/Genius and appears on the album Pro Tools (2007).

I'm in the schoolyard rhymin' with my brother Jamel and Ra' Allah
Vibe and took the beat and imaginin' how far
The sound travel at the turn of the volume
It could shake the gravel, before we heard the loud boom

It vibrated through the parkin' lot
Shattered a few windshields, set off a sparkin' shot
The local UPS cat, but we didn't stress that
He had a slow leak, front tire almost flat

I got a cousin think he slicker than the oil in the chain
But I live in an arcade, surrounded by game
He used to pass me bucks, tryin' to gas me up
He was a fast talker and he kept a flashy cut

From a spot that was on Malcolm X Boulevard
Where this magician, wishin' I would pull a card
An optical illusion and whose hands were quick
But wasn't fast enough not to reveal his trick

Hey yo, who be the first to set it off and just begun?
Turn up the heat until the track is done
And we roll together as one
Yes, I call my brother sun, 'cause he shine like one

Who be the first to set it off and just begun?
Turn up the heat until the track is done
And we roll together as one
Yes, I call my brother sun, 'cause he shine like one

Mass hysteria inside the cafeteria
Not a food fight, but the news might beat your area
Whether by word of mouth, or if you read about it
Extra, extra, extra that they felt the need to shout it

The drummer played the beat on the table
His boy kicked a verse, like he was the first and I wasn't able
More prepared to let off anything substantial
If I had no rhymes and my planes was canceled

Picture that, before you give your bag and expose it
Couldn't develop the color, wonder why he chose it
See less than the worst competition to the point
I only use one ear to listen

Was it something I'm missin'? The food is gettin' cold
The corners about to flake as soon as I flip the bowl
See the rhyme ain't worth than less a ticket
Wasted time of mine plus the temp cooked it

Who be the first to set it off and just begun?
Turn up the heat until the track is done
And we roll together as one
Yes, I call my brother sun, 'cause he shine like one

Who be the first to set it off and just begun?
Turn up the heat until the track is done
And we roll together as one
Yes, I call my brother sun, 'cause he shine like one
