People are gonna respect me if it kills you
People are going to respect me if it kills you
You people are gonna respect me if it kills you
You people are gonna respect me if it kills you

Yo look, do it how they didn't
Now they really wanna try to do it, but I'm telling them no
I'm in a predicament with imitators
Wanna take my style and other bit of my flow

All this copy cattin' on my lyrics that ya chattin'
Betta stop until the gunshots blow
Do you really want it 'coz I really wanna give it
If you do just let me know

I show arrogance and elegance but no
Tolerance for nonsense I bring
Violence I'm a nuisance
Killer MC leave no evidence

I've got brains and intelligence but no
Conscience no innocence, we roll
In the darkened silence
Represent us in any residence

And I swing for your chin with no hesitense
I'ma captain ya betta bring your regiments
And you're a failure don't have no relevence
I'ma champion and a victor prick ya

So not ready so till ya see ya soul
Headed for the golden gates
No really you monkeys are playin' with hate
Not guerilla warfare it's the coppers I carry this stick for

Plus I've had enough of these
Lil' cheek comin' from fake MC's
Bad minders and skat ladies
Talkin' about how it used to be

Well it's a brand new day, so leave me be
I don't need you so don't need me
Your opinion don't interest me
Don't like me that's fine by me

'Coz from Holly street ta Hollywood it's all good
From New York ta your cool it's all cool
You're a fool if ya think I'm gonna cease
Now honestly could there really be peace

It don't seem that way to tough
Stop with the games I play to rough
You must be smokin' to much puff
Divert or be deceased

UK rapper stabbed in napa
'Coz of gossip 'coz of chatter
He's still breathin' he's still a dapper
Retaliate with gun clapper

Truthfully I can't see very well
Don't flatter your self your any girl
Them boy's shoulda said need ta hell
Now prepare for the beast

You people are gonna respect me, I better make you respect me
You people are gonna respect me, I better make you respect me
You people are gonna respect me, I better make you respect me
You people are gonna respect me, I better make you respect me

You people are gonna respect me if it kills you
You people are gonna respect me if it kills you

I swear yo, endless speculation I'm facin'
Constant controversial relations
To gun crime at garage events
With so many claims and no evidence

Suggesting I'm the reason
For the UK gun clap season
I'm legal may I stress
To the fool for the sake of strident intelligence

Go ahead check my files all day
Bit of criminal damage and T D A
Might be a little bit of violent disorder
But I ain't never been locked away

Got a few mates that have been convicted
Yes so what it's the hand life dealt them
We weren't blessed with the systems T L C
Government shoulda tried ta help them

Any law breaker ain't tryna hide it
As for the sentence ain't tryna ride it
Stop that so I could do this
I'm legit ya may as well kiss my

A S S P L E A S E
I'm L E G I T
You ain't got nothin' on me

But to the pricks who think I'm slackin'
Please don't ever be fooled I'm packin'
This is a welcome and it's a warning
Please don't ever just think I'm rappin'

You know the score I'm raw from day
Still Dylan the villain from around the way
Feel free to quote anything I say
Please don't ever just think I'm chattin'

Gonna respect me, I better make you respect me
You people are gonna respect me, I better make you respect me
You people are gonna respect me, I better make you respect me
You people are gonna respect me, I better make you respect me

You people are gonna respect me if it kills you
You people are gonna respect me if it kills you
Respect me

I know what you're thinkin' it's gone to far now in it
Fuck it, if I don't speak who's gonna speak for me
Stand up for myself in this shit, so fuck you, unapologetic
Can't be, never have been, won't be a prick

Yeah, that's it
