This Craft, this beat, this rhyme, this vibe
This style, they say music gives new life
From a source inside that is forever flowin'

This stage, this mic, this crowd, this show
This life, I've been given a gift tonight
And for that, I vow to be a vessel

I didn't have to be given the gift to rip
I'll never master me, I know that it's from him
Or her or it, dimensions that sit, waitin' to sift through me
I fall short, still it hits me swift

I didn't have to see, I coulda hit the lick
I coulda drifted it quick, I coulda quit so quick
It's really a trip, I guess I was picked
I don't know what I did to deserve a ride like this, damn!

I didn't have to eat, I coulda been so thin
I didn't have to be, quoting these sentences
I didn't have to reap, the work put in but then
Even the work in itself was such a blessin'

I didn't have to see, the planet tip to tip
I didn't have to make, a livin' writ to writ
I didn't have to dream and then begin to live it
And for that, I vow to be a vessel

This Craft, this beat, this rhyme, this vibe
This style, they say music gives new life
From a source inside that is forever flowin'

This stage, this mic, this crowd, this show
This life, I've been given a gift tonight
And for that, I vow to be a vessel

I give thanks for my rhymin' ability
I don't front like it's not a responsibility
I can open a mind, if the youth will listen to me
I'm not goin' to front like I'm on some killin' spree

And as hard as the times are, God is livin' through beats
That come not from minds but that travel through spiritual reasons
Some of the time, I feel like it's not even me
No money can buy gateways to infinity

Still I'm hungry to shine when I know I should let it be
And I want but I have every single thing that I need
So help me align self with soul and then I'll be free
To sculpt and design verbal styles and experience freedom

This Craft, this beat, this rhyme, this vibe
This style, they say music gives new life
From a source inside that is forever flowin'

This stage, this mic, this crowd, this show
This life, I've been given a gift tonight
And for that, I vow to be a vessel

Let go, do what's in front of you
Then, let go, then do what's in front of you

This ain't leisure, although it feels
It is a duty, a way to live, another way to give
Another way to just, have communion with the source
Of the sun and moon and a way to pay the bills

Displayin' skills, I take it real serious
The vibe's so mysterious, not just one more day to kill
And I could lose my connection
If I do not respect it enough, fade away it will

Day to day it gives energies
That replenish me, if I believe and I say it will
And act on it, 'cause action is the key to freedom
Only way to be a leader, lead by the way you live

This Craft, this beat, this rhyme, this vibe
This style, they say music gives new life
From a source inside that is forever flowin'

This stage, this mic, this crowd, this show
This life, I've been given a gift tonight
And for that, I vow to be a vessel

This Craft, this beat, this rhyme, this vibe
This style, they say music gives new life
From a source inside that is forever flowin'

This stage, this mic, this crowd, this show
This life, I've been given a gift tonight
And for that, I vow to be a vessel

This Craft, this beat, this rhyme, this vibe
This style, they say music gives new life
From a source inside that is forever flowin'

This stage, this mic, this crowd, this show
This life, I've been given a gift tonight
And for that, I vow to be a vessel
