Now get busy

Now once upon a time up on this mic
MC's be really workin' on what they write
With the sound delight we rock all night
And yes, we're gonna party for the right to fight

We're international like Matt Takei
Rock the mic from Munich out to Taipei
Still around the way is where we'll stay
Say what we mean, mean what we say

Trajectories from the past are takin' their toll and
What we do now is future mouldin'
Columbine bowlin', childhood stolen
We need a bit more gun controllin'

Right now
What is goin' on?
We gotta get it goin' on
Before it's too far gone
We gotta work together, it's been too long

When I get on you scream, "Hoo Tight!"
Rockin' this flow I could go all night
I'm not here to fight or incite
I'm like the beach in the Bahamas make you feel alright

I'm getting kind of tired of the situation
The US attackin' other nations
And narration on every station
False election's got me losing my patience

I'm a funky-ass Jew and I'm on my way
And yes, I got to say, "Fuck the KKK"
And oh yeah hey, how about today?
If you want to set it off then let me hear you say

Right now
What is goin' on?
We gotta get it goin' on
Before it's too far gone
We gotta work together, it's been too long

I went to get a loan and they asked my race
I wrote down human inside the space
It's a disgrace how they try to debase
It ain't the bank's damn business how my lineage trace

Now let me drop a verse that's terse and concise
I'm an iron chef when I slice and dice
With the rhyme precise, the word is nice
So please pass me the reunite on ice

Well, let's go to work and not beserk
'Cause when the time comes the body goes to dirt
Try to smooth it out like Levert
Keep the mind alert and not revert

Right now
What is goin' on?
We gotta get it goin' on
Before it's too far gone
We gotta work together, it's been too long
