Yeah, to all my peoples on the planet stimulatin' the mind
All my peoples that be knowin' the time
Come on and push up ya lighter, up ya lighter, up ya lighter
'Fore we spark the fire

To all my peoples on the planet stimulatin' the mind
All my peoples that be knowin' the time
Come on and push up ya lighter, up ya lighter, up ya lighter
'Fore we spark, check it out

Southeast to Pennsylvania
Transportation Authority is what I'm probably on
If I ain't whippin' a land throughout ya section
My mind's in traum', nine times out of ten

I rhymes upon the L Train within my brain
Fountains over rugged mountains of my terrain
Diggit, I came too far to front, so I'm meditatin' on how to maintain
Stepped off at City Hall into the rain

And ran into my nigga named Dane, I mean Hakeem
And we was buildin' on how we could organize the team
For this capital gain bein' that we in the rap game
It's time to have it all, he said he figured he same

We realized this a planet of Cream, to obtain
When the predominant rap, conglomerate rap spark the flame
Hark the name
The Fifth from the Ill-Power Hill at that

He dropped me off within the streets of South Phil'
Where niggaz think that killing's living real
Shorties is getting wetted, fulfilling their fantasies to set it
We don't sweat it, by The Fifth you get beheaded
I pivot through my borough givin' pounds to the dreaded

At the lye spots I got credit, could run 'em down
In alphabetical order it's sorta pathetic
Yo, I'm livin' life within a labryinth of nonsense
This is a consequence of being Philly residents
Tryin' to get it on, the rhythm gettin' shitted on
The exquisite I exhibit to shine, yo

To all my peoples on the planet stimulatin' the mind
All my peoples that be knowin' the time
Come on and push up ya lighter, up ya lighter, up ya lighter
'Fore we spark the fire

To all my peoples on the planet stimulatin' the mind
All my peoples that be knowin' the time
Come on and push up ya lighter, up ya lighter, up ya lighter
'Fore we spark, check it out

I walk through this field with 'iminals
Ill die-hard soldiers, try to make it towards the generals
Hard-headed rugged captains, walkin' head on through action
Turnkeys on the closed caption

I bring the skills of wizardry
Treat MC's with bigotry, so now you see the picture vividly
Seduce your brain from the temple over instrumentals
The Fifth chant, you see the exhaust out
The swift camp, mannerism is to scan your vision

You see the light, you can't eclipse the sun
We call back the young, but still they'll strap a gun
To shoot caps that spook cats and rappers hung
Now you might tube across from the diners where you find 'em lost
Niggaz hearts so cold, they sport frost

The M-the-illitant, the Bad Lieutenant kill your camp
You're now a victim of reality, my personality
Afflicted, for three to five if convicted
Illicit, because most cats will live corrupted
It ain't no pity in this inner city niggaz fuckin'
Exquisite I exhibit the shine, now check it out

To all my peoples on the planet stimulatin' the mind
All my peoples that be knowin' the time
Come on and push up ya lighter, up ya lighter, up ya lighter
'Fore we spark the fire

To all my peoples on the planet stimulatin' the mind
All my peoples that be knowin' the time
Come on and push up ya lighter, up ya lighter, up ya lighter
'Fore we spark, check it out

Inclined to rap about facts, I never fake jacks
Shit is Real like E packs, forty-fifty-sixes
Trims and gimmicks, couldn't face the true heartache
When I first started, but then few remember this

Anti-Gangsta Bitch, sporting new jewels
Plain Jane styles internal, to the naked eye
Derived from mind states of Cold Crush tapes
And beat breaks seduced by means to elevate

Equates my views with the passing
Those matching this intellect identify, for like minds
Intertwine one thought in unison
We exquisite I exhibit the shine

Yeah, to all my peoples on the planet stimulatin' the mind
All my peoples that be knowin' the time
Come on and push up ya lighter, up ya lighter, up ya lighter
'Fore we spark the fire

To all my peoples on the planet stimulatin' the mind
All my peoples that be knowin' the time
Come on and push up ya lighter, up ya lighter, up ya lighter
'Fore we spark the fire

To all my peoples on the planet stimulatin' the mind
All my peoples that be knowin' the time
Come on and push up ya lighter, up ya lighter, up ya lighter
'Fore we spark the fire

To all my peoples on the planet stimulatin' the mind
All my peoples that be knowin' the time
Come on and push up ya lighter, up ya lighter, up ya lighter
'Fore we spark, check it out
