Let me tell you somethin'
I'm 'bout to set it off, society watch me while I do it

Yo, yo, I buck shots, lick shots, take shots, give shots
Headliners know, this year we switch spots
Check it, I spit it for the righteous and the wretched
First came the live show, next came the records

With wax collectors with rap perfectors
With scratch, with dance, with graf protectors
Worldwide travelers in your sector
DJ Babu, come down selector

I raw here, I explore here, you like that
Where that comes from there's more there
This is warfare and we score fair
We don't stop till our flag swings in your air

I rap to build or I rap to ruin
Your whole career, yo, watch what you doin'

Let me tell you somethin'
I'm 'bout to set it off, society, watch me while I do it
(Pay attention)
I'm 'bout to set it off, society, watch me while I do it
(Watch and observe)

I'm 'bout to set it off, society, watch me while I do it
(Pay attention)
Watch me while I do it, watch me while I do it
(Watch and observe)

Let me tell you somethin'
I'm 'bout to set it off, society, watch me while I do it

Yo, yo, I'm a poet with the warrior spirit inside
Chokin' rappers out like hicks on and pride
We all share the same sun givin' us light
But remember, sink or swim, time winnin's a fight

Expansion team takes rows, takes oceans, takes flight
Then takes over the stage till the morning breaks night
Word of mouth crew, make sure we pay right
Then Hendrix takes over my body, I blaze mics

Spray 3-D outlines and highlights
I know lowlifes that are livin' the high life
At great heights, I exercise my rights
So much smoke, when I'm this high, I sky-write

Raaka raps to build or raps to ruin
Your whole career, yo, watch what you're doin'

Let me tell you somethin'
I'm 'bout to set it off, society, watch me while I do it
(Pay attention)
I'm 'bout to set it off, society, watch me while I do it
(Watch and observe)

I'm 'bout to set it off, society, watch me while I do it
(Pay attention)
Watch me while I do it, watch me while I do it
(Watch and observe)

Let me tell you somethin'
I'm 'bout to set it off, society, watch me while I do it

I rock hills and valleys, rap shows and rallys
Record stores and schools, live shit from Cali
Take it to the people, cut out the middle men
Like Chuck said, "I don't rhyme for the sake of riddlin"

I rap to build or I rap to ruin
Your whole career, yo, watch what you're doin'

Let me tell you somethin'
I'm 'bout to set it off, society, watch me while I do it
I'm 'bout to set it off, society, watch me while I do it
(Pay attention)

Watch me while I do it, watch me while I do it
(Watch and observe)
Let me tell you somethin'
I'm 'bout to set it off, society, watch me while I do it
(Pay attention)

U.K. y'all, U.S.A y'all
Japan y'all, Japan y'all
France y'all, France y'all
