Yeah, thats the one
Yo, Thor-El, just just check your mic

So you wanna be the Million Dollar Man, kid, whats your plan?
Make a deal with the Devil, settle for a hundred grand
Not enough, I call your bluff, hit you with the stuff
Deal with this an' think youre tough?
Gimme a call when things get rough

You get no Vette an' if I could stay leaded
Im leavin' rappers one-legged from fakin' like the prosthetic
More artificial by cripple, rap is like your pistol
Grim Reaper, I got the whistle, death, I pull no tissue

Hit you like the Mac-11, MCs subtract by seven
Callin', callin' for the Reverend, lookin' at Hell like Heaven
Im on the map, makin' it like the crazy on the track
Oh, what the hell, I get my mail while I raid you 'til it crack

H.I.P.H.O.P., we are
H.I.P.H.O.P., we are

Dead, two in the head before some A an' R tell me
I must give up the streets, you lift the company, can sell me
Whats the sense in being large if you cant take a risk?
Thinkin' a risk upon a disc means youre written off the list

Im not sayin' you cant have your fame an' glory just dont bore me
When I come to see you live an' I paid twenty-five
Thats crazy loot Kris is sayin', I dont play those games
'Killing Rhyme Sessions' is the meanin' of my name

But dont call my name in vain 'cause I will appear
An' your livest MC will get slain right here
See, I do the homework an' I do the extra credit
You could sell a million records an' still cant set it

'Cause the Lex or Beem is probably just the matches an' a Jeep
So Im sure your rap career, now if they come before your people
Oh, Lord, you cant be thinkin' about Billboard
With the mic cord an' several thousand people just bored

Bein' dope live is like bein' insured for life
You always get called back twice, you are

H.I.P.H.O.P., we are
H.I.P.H.O.P., we are
H.I.P.H.O.P., we are
H.I.P.H.O.P., we are

I burn like hydracholoric an' my city got itty
Hes terrible, Thor-Els incredible an' terrific
Is it that youre under the influence of local obvious?
Rappers that die, but why? Explain the obvious

No stoppin' this lyrics from the esophagus
Rockin' strictly the hip hop populace
