One time, yeah, yeah

Yo, all I need is one mic, one beat, one stage
One **** front, my face on the front page
Only if I had one ***, one girl and one crib
One God to show me how to do things his son did

Pure, like a cup of virgin blood, mixed with
One fifty-one, one sip'll make a **** flip
Writin' names on my ****** ****, plottin' ****
Mad violence, who I'm gon' ****, this hood politics

Ackowledge it, leave bodies ******* in garbages
Seeds watch us, grow up and try to follow us
Police watch us roll up and try knockin' us
One knee I ducked, could it be my time is up

But my luck, I got up, the cop **** again
Bus stop glass bursts, a fiend drops his Heineken
Richochetin' between the spots that I'm hidin' in
Blackin' out as I ***** back, **** gettin' hit

This is my hood I'ma rep, to the death of it
'Til everybody come home, little ****** is grown
Hoodrats, don't abortion your womb, we need more warriors soon
Sip from the star, sun and the moon

In this life of police chases, street sweepers and coppers
***** ** kids with no conscience, leavin' victims with doctors
If you really think you ready to die, with ***** out
This is what nas is 'bout, ***** the time is now

Yo, all I need is one mic
All I need is one mic, that's all I need
All I need is one mic, all I need *****
All I need is one mic, yeah

All I need is one ****, one page and one pen
One prayer, tell God, forgive for one sin
Matter fact maybe more than one, look back
At all the hatred against me, **** alla them

Jesus died at age thirty-three, there's thirty-three *****
From twin ***** there's sixteen a piece, that's thirty-two
Which means, one of my **** was holdin seventeen
Twenty-seven hit your crew, six went into you

Everybody gotta die sometime, hope your funeral
Never gets **** up, ******* tear through the innocent
Nothin' is fair, ****** roll up, ******* from wheelchairs
My heart is racin', tastin' revenge in the air

I let the **** slide for too many years, too many times
Now I'm strapped with a couple of ****, too many *****
If y'all ****** really wit me get busy, load up the *****
Do more than just hold it, explode the **** until you empty

There's nothin' in our way, they bust, we bust, they rust, we rust
**** flyin', feel it? I feel it in my gut
That we take these ****** to war, lie 'em down
'Cause we stronger now, my ***** the time is now

All I need is one mic, that's all I need, that's all I need
All I need is one mic, there's nuttin else in the world
All I need is one mic, that's all a ***** need to do his thing, y'know
All I need is one mic

All I need is one life, one try, one breath, I'm one man
What I stand for speaks for itself, they don't understand
Or wanna see me on top, too egotistical
Talkin' all that slick ****, the same way these ****** do

Wonder what my secrets is, ******** move on you
Only if they know, what your weakness is, I have none
Too late to grab **** I'm ****** 'cause I'm a cool *****
Thought I wouldn't have that *** done? Fooled you ******

What you call a infinite brawl, eternal souls clashin
War gets deep, some beef is everlastin'
Complete with thick scars, brothers ****** each other
Up in prison yards, drama, where does it start?

You know the block was ill as a youngster
Every night it was like a, cop would get ******
Body found in the dumpster
For real a hustler, purchased my Range, ****** throwin' dirt on my name
Jealous 'cause fiends got they work and complain

******* left me 'cause they thought I was finished
Shoulda knew she wasn't true, she came to me
When her man caught a sentence
Diamonds are blindin', I never make the same mistakes
Movin' with a change of pace, lighter load, see now, the king is straight

Swellin' my melon 'cause none of these ******* real
Heard he was, tellin' police, how can a kingpin squeal?
This is crazy, I'm on the right track, I'm finally found
You need some soul searchin', the time is now

All I need is one mic, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
All I need is one mic, that's all I ever needed in this world, **** cash
All I need is one mic, **** the cars, the jewelry
All I need is one mic to spread my voice to the whole world, baby
