Verse 1:
Ha ha, welcome radio land and others, my underground brothers is mad deep
like gutters
I bring it no matter what the situation, underwater, through fire
Across barded wire, what? I'm quick to Change Faces without R. Kelly
When you step on me you best be ready. I heats it up like house kitchen
When I'm bitchin' with this redition, chill or you might catch an ass
There's something wrong ha, I can't go on, and commence
Tear the frame out an MC's ass with the quickness, no forgiveness
This is the way E does buisness, one touch and I'll weaken the average came
to be rap star
By far by far, my entourage is Sugar Hill like Wesly Snipes
Def Squad is the main attraction for y'all everynight

"I came through the door" - Rakim
And I set it off (X4)

Verse 2:
Dun da da, the E Double brings it full steam
Eyes are green, yeah, taken sucker niggas for they cream
I rock the mic, alright, with intentions to please and decapitate all
gimmick MC's
Yeah, I come action packed like a flick, and dismantle those duck MC's that
can't handle
My sound goes through my musical speakers, beeotch, and flash a symbol like
the Grym Reaper
To signify, gamma ray I display on wax is ridiculous, way out likt the crew
on Star Trek
Yeah, I keep my style Black like Panthers, with women more fat than
Damn, this don't make no F in' sense, for me  to be on top bigger than
A star ghost super nova turns into a black hole 
That got put into your soul

Hook (x4)

Verse 3:
For those that envy me and say I ain't about nothing and everthing you see
my names on something
Flawless, outlandish, unique complete, off the wall technique I develop
without speech (woah)
On bended knee I could damage an MC, thourgholy
Yeah, yeah take him for his currency, remarkable, the black Superman in the
Flying through the air with green eyes

Hook (x4)
