Wait a minute now
Wait a minute now
Check

To tha young r to tha e tha b to tha e tha l
Never give up just live up
Fed upon America, we be spittin' it up
Rippin' it up
For an even amount in each cup

To my brothers burning bare feet on black top
Whose curled 'neath tha shadows from tha gaze of tha cops
Whose huntin' for 9 to 5's through factory locks
Is now hunted on this modern day auction block

Mic check, ha ha ha
I be the anti myth rhythm rock shocka
Mic check, ha ha ha
I be the anti myth rhythm rock shocka what
Mic check, ha ha ha
I be the anti myth rhythm rock shocka
Mic check, ha ha ha
I be the anti myth rhythm rock shocka what

Flexin' and mashin' with complex text
Fast and in a fasion that snap back necks
Quicker than a fed cash tha company checks
Come with tha fire only Marley could catch

This be tha flame in the cellar beware
Nameless cold millions gaspin' for air
Those naked and wageless, scream within cages
They make you pull your shit just to get your share

Mic check, ha ha ha
I be the anti myth rhythm rock shocka
Mic check, ha ha ha
I be the anti myth rhythm rock shocka, what
Mic check, ha ha ha
I be the anti myth rhythm rock shocka
Mic check, ha ha ha
I be the anti myth rhythm rock shocka, what

Welcome down with the warrior sound, uh

With this mic device, I spit nonfiction
Who got tha power this be my question
Tha mass of the few in this torn nation?
Tha priest tha book or tha congregation?

Tha politricks who rob and hold down your zone?
Or those who give tha thieves tha key to their homes?
Tha pig who's free to murder one Shucklak
Or survivors who make a move and murder one back
