The everything

from by Kabir

lyrics

This is the rough, rugged, raw
Not for the soft only for the hardcore
This ain't epic fail or swag
This is Ultra-Mag, a critical beatdown in a bag
This is music with a purpose
This is content that probes deep beneath the surface.
This makes a tough guy nervous
It makes affluence and wealth feel worthless
This is the boss against his workers, a square against a circle,
Boston Celtic green versus L.A. Laker purple,
Hip Hop for the people, this is universal
This is something very different, check the role reversal
No less, no more this is everything you asked for
This is the present, whatcha dwellin' on the past for?
This is the stimulant enhancer
This is the question and the answer

This is the power of ideas,
A salad of rhymes and sounds wrapped in a tortilla
This is onomatopoeia,
Fulfilling great potential like the principle of Nia
This is poison, mixed and cut up by Medea,
intended for Theseus but stopped by King Aegeus
a west side story like Tony and Maria,
or the rise and fall of a dictator in Korea,
this is justice, "Free Mandela", "Free Mumia",
It's the legend of Biggie, Heavy D and Aliyah
Whether you're a Rolls Royce or just a Kia,
The finest single malt or some sangria
This is all of my intensity
Mixed with my propensity
To act the part sensibly, is that the way it's meant to be?
This is it essentially
Remain strong mentally
And be yourself, not the person you pretend to be

these are the burdens overwhelming and extending me, music is my guiding light, it's righteously defending me
My energy is everything that I'm expending see, and if lyrics were cash I'd be on a spending spree
Your rhymes ran out, go get a loan from lending tree in fact your lack of imagination is offending me
I'm sick of all that weak sauce you're sending me
your raps are broken and they really need some mending B

This is your reconstructive surgery
Hip Hop is the oath and you've committed perjury
This is my way of fighting burglary verbally
leaving weak emcees in the infirmary
This is all that you've been missing, plus the dreams that you've been wishing,
mixing new and old ideas, innovation and tradition
Keep it fresh (that's my mission) put the key in the ignition,
Acting on my own volition, ask me for permission

This is a strong coalition
Organize now, sign that petition
Exercise intelligence, use intuition
Do more think less (subtraction by addition)
These are the thoughts of a teacher and musician
With no breaks for choruses and no intermission
Food for the famine, this is your nutrition,
Under most conditions words are still my ammunition
This is the new edition
The latest installment from the technician,
This is the opposition,
Bring your "A" game, I welcome real competition
This is the everything so listen,
Extinguishing all of your doubt and your suspicion
The Olympic Gold commission
This is my hip hop deposition
