Yes, yes, yep!
Welcome to the Jay-Z extravaganza
I'd like to introduce my band right now
Just Blaze and the Blazettes, hehe
Right now I want you to give the drummer some
No ma really, give the drummer some
Uhh

Touch the untouchable, break the unbreakable
Shake the unshakeable
(It's Hovi baby)

Yeah, ch-chi-uh, uh-ch-ch-uh, un-breakable
Rock the unrockable
(It's Hovi baby)

Follow the flow, look
They say a midget standin' on a giant's shoulders
Can see much further than the giant
So I got the whole rap world on my shoulders
They tryin' to see further than I am
And I have been tryin' to be patient with they preoccupation
With David and Goliath
But sooner or later, that patience gonna run it's course
And I'm forced to be a tyrant

But bein' tyrant, comin' through your environment
Iron mask, nigga iron gas, nigga I am back
With "The Team," no "I" in that
R.O.C., y'all not eyein' that
Y'all don't see clearly 'cause the reign ain't gone
"The Dynasty," no not Ming's but Shawn's
Dame, Kareem's, nigga it's the gangsta team
Stop your run, one of the reasons that they call us gangrene
The other reason, we got a gang to green
If there's better at gettin' cheddar that remains to be seen, nigga
Jeah, jeah

Can't touch the untouchable, break the unbreakable
Shake the unshakeable
(It's Hovi baby)

Can't see the unseeable, reach the unreachable
Do the impossible
(It's Hovi baby)

Can't move the unmoveable, stop the unstoppable

Jeah, look
I'm so far ahead of my time, I'm 'bout to start another life
Look behind you, I'm 'bout to pass you twice
Back to the future, gotta slow up for the present
I'm fast, niggas can't get past my past
How they propose to deal with my perfect present
When I unwrap "The Gift and the Curse" in one session

Ain't no livin' person can test him
Only two restin' in heaven
Can be mentioned in the same breath as him
Seven straight summers, critics might not admit it
But nobody in rap did it, quite like I did it
If you did it I done it before, you get I had it
Got mad at it and don't want it no more

And that goes for everything from flippin' that raw
Flippin' whores, flippin' vocal chords, don't get it twisted
Get it right, did it different, did it better, did it nice
Did the impossible then did it twice
(Get it right)

Can't touch the untouchable, break the unbreakable
Shake the unshakeable
(It's Hovi baby)

Can't see the unseeable, reach the unreachable
Do the impossible
(It's Hovi baby)

Yup! Hovi's home, the global phone
The world is back in order, the number one rap recorder is back
You cats overfelt yourself
You couldn't help yourself now witness the real for real
In my absence cats get absent-minded
Now it's time to rewind and remind 'em
Why I'm in the position that I am
Changin' the game, my game could nail Madonna
Well, after I'm gone, they'll honor
History in the makin', Pistol Pete
Competition shakin' without missin' the beat
Chasin' the hi-hat all over the track
The snare is scared of the air in here, boom!

And plus I get paper dog, don't let me forget
The watch face so blue like it's holdin' its breath
Can't see me skill for skill or check for check
It's the bow tie flow dog, I bring it to your neck
Live and correct I will bring it to your set
I got now, I don't care who got next
Rapper slash exec, Cordell Stewart
Your flow all y'all usin' is mine, you're all useless
You ain't a factor, who are you foolin'?
You all are faggots, you takin' it backwards
I'm tryin' to progress with this rap shit
Nigga, nigga, your whole career is a accident
Who was gassin' 'em?
(Fuck outta here!)

Can't touch the untouchable, break the unbreakable
Shake the unshakeable
(It's Hovi baby)

Can't see the unseeable, reach the unreachable
Do the impossible
(It's Hovi baby)
