Yo whassup, wassup son?
Yeah yeah yeah, we ready
Whassup, whassup son?
Whassup, what's the deal?
Yeah yeah
Yeah, aight, so so all we gotta do
Is do the shit we've been workin' on word
When we add this new, Canibus nigga, ya know what I'm sayin'?
Niggaz gonna feel that nigga
Oh, that's the old to the new, the old to the new
That's gonna bring us back
So let's, so let's work on this shit
Y'all ready? Two times, from the top
I hold the mic, real tight
And yo grab the mic and make the shit sound tight
Hold the mic, real tight
And yo, grab the mic and make the shit sound tight

The hype-nitis is in your eyes
That look, that smile, in disguise

Aiyyo, can you feel it?
I know that everybody's heard of that
But this is the ninety-eight version of that
BizMark, one of the founders of this art
Discovered evidence, of the disease, and documented it

Now the name of the virus is called "Hype-nitis"
A terminal condition that effects all biters and liars
Hype-no-holics can't require my respect
'Cause they snakes and I can smell the venom on they breath
Hype-nitis

The hype-nitis is in your eyes
That look, that smile, in disguise

Alright now, I'm about to break the hype-nitis down
It's characterized by a certain type of lifestyle
People that treated you foul just wanna be nice now
Smile and raise they eyebrows when you come around

I remember when I first started to work
And tried to get this job as a label intern
Them niggaz was, killin' me 'cause wasn't nobody feelin' me
A&R's wouldn't even risk demo-dealin' me

The hype-nitis is in your eyes
That look, that smile, in disguise

Aiyyo, I know
Most the niggaz I exchange pounds with or lounge with
Wouldn't be around if my career was spiralin' downward
They'd crowd around me 'til I'm surrounded
Ask me who I'm down with, 'til I replied, "The Navy Seals outfit"

They told me my album was coconuts so they rewound it
I knew they was hype-no-holics by how they voices sounded
I pull a silver can out of my trousers
Made a public announcement, about the Hype juice
And then I bounced kid

The hype-nitis is in your eyes
That look, that smile, in disguise

To me hype-nitis is like the measles, 'cause it's a disease too
Studies show it affects one in every five people
It's so lethal, the cure can't be achieved through
Hypodermic needles or the ingestion of medicine in teaspoons

If you feel the need to, here's a toll-free number
They'll send you an eight page pamphlet to read through
(800)-7932 , there'll be available hype-no-holics
Standin' by for you to speak to

The hype-nitis is in your eyes
That look, that smile, in disguise
The hype
