Untouchables Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

This is poetry in motion
Try to catch on, stay close to the host
And MC's try to make the road rough but I'm coastin'
Ladies hear the rhymes rub 'em on like lotion

Hit spots soothin', can't stop movin'
Go ahead, bust a sweat and you can bet I'm still coolin'
When I detain it's a brainstorm
Never the same form, every brain I rained on is warm

Takin' a trip through Memory Lane to Melody
See if you could tell if these thoughts to fell MC's
Could do you justice but you can't touch this
Some kid just tried to bust this but he just missed

I'm universal and much more merciful
So versatile with the style it's reversible
I get away even if I say a curse or two
First, let me bust another verse for you

Your arms too short to box with Ra, so quit
You don't want no kind of conflict
Or you'll get stripped as the rhyme is ripped
Pick up the pieces now ain't that peace, yeah I'm hip

Everything I said flows since my intro
I plant a thought extend and then grow
Holdin' my pen tightly it might be controversy at first
When I write the chords of research

Don't just take it for granted
When I'm gone my mind remains a planet
If I keep buildin' and teach the children
So when they read in between the lines it's filled in

I break to meditate, not a peep, concentrate
Till I'm deep awake but not asleep
At the same time risin' and advertisin' what is true
Keep advised and you can stay wise and I'm untouchable

Comin' over the bridge, take a peak at the skyline
'Cause that's how I shine not only when I rhyme
My culture's makin' me stronger, mentally
Physically I'm powerful poetry now that could be

Labeled as art placed in a museum
Style'll make scenery, now you see 'em
Exhibit a knowledge that's packed and filled with
Nothin' illiterate, it's facts I build with

My mind's untouchable which means intangible
Contents never dense, it's understandable
I study life, so I can live it the right way
No time to hear what another brother might say

Why sell a capsule of crack I don't have to?
I rhyme and sign million dollar contracts to
Put message on records that's graced with hard bass
Smugglin' microphones, this ain't Scarface

Whoever talked that talk, I wanna hawk
And don't try to 'Escape From New York'
Cross a 110th Street lookin' for a problem
It's 'Hell Up In Harlem', watch Ra solve 'em

I hear the music clear as I get near
The hundred and twenty fifth street Apollo Theater
Take a step back when I rap I step up to you
I'm untouchable

Put on my thinking cap pump the track
Test your reflex relax but in contact
You fold and lose control, so hold your partner closer
You're supposed to keep your composure

But you hear the drum said go then it gets so hype
It's like nitro opponents get petro
Remember the trademark left by the R
That's never soft or smooth, it's comin' off the hardest

In effect, you could die-tect the impostor
Takin' my props, Rakim is still proper
I'm a prophet, you can't stop it when I drop it
Everything I say, coincide with the topic

Thoughts bounce around till my skull is fractured
Inside my brain it's all manufactured
As we go deeper it's hard to find
Don't even think about it 'cause you can't read my mind

It's clear so therefore you need a ear or inclined
In the mind with some kind of idea for the style
I'm advertisin' what is true, keep advised
That you stay wise and the mind is untouchable
