lyrics

CODE SWITCHIN'
And so now the whole premise is
To be the absolute antithesis
And spit that absolute permanent
Limitless= no gimmick shit
Now all of this contemporary madness
Ain’t nothing but bad slave habits
Me? I’m on my Northstar bop
My main medium and apparatus
Is to keep it contrary to the pop
Inspire you to ask if the path is massive enough
((((((( Watch ))))))))
I’m in that Senufo, Fang mask
Tellin you bout the path
Code switchin in and out of they grasp
I’m in that multidimensional
Denyin all the physical
And going into what God has
Planned= No corpse no man
More than that? You sore from rap?
I bring the score= Opera, facts
Slick Rickin in the mirror
No Snow White
Bruce Leroy= Nigga-glow bright
Fuck it glow worm= Nigga-night light
No cartoon post cocoon= Cicada
Birdy spit razors
All force Yoda no lasers
Big Daddy’s swag
Suspenders, slacks, blazers,
And a 44 mag in the bag

Code switchin Zone gettin thick
He twitchin you betta split
No forgettin we at war we in the trench
He go Neo walk up in ya crib in a trench
Talkin bout
Yaaaat dat dah dat dow
Yaaaat dat dah dat dow

Yo, this is not gangsta
This is that thank ya
For pushin my button
I been in construction
I been in the lab
I been with the muhfuckin pen and the pad
I been in that,
“They ain’t give me what a nigga wanted to have”
I been in that
“I’m getcha do the math”
I been in that
“Fuck ya face blow that in half”
I been in that
“Richard Pryor= all fire no laughs”

Yaaaat dat dah dat dow
Yaaaat dat dah dat dow
(((((( Code Switchin )))))))

Yo, I ain’t never cut dope
I’m that field nigga, though
Ain’t never been no cutthroat
Unless it was masters… Cut ropes
No fruit stranger
Even before them straps had them chambers
I prevent the fear from turnin into frustration into anger
In me in you and even in the doppelganger
I bring all of that fire= Kramer
Explode ovens, “He was talkin bout all the shit in the coven”
Who knows? Young mystic
Hang with warlocks and witches
They don’t wanna know which glitch is
The one that’ll get em in danger
Who shot who? Who the one who framed ya?
Who the one that came through with media to blame ya?
He got Cecil’d, huhn? They maimed him
I went Taylor, huhn? I played them
Keys they ain’t never heard and never wanna hear
Just to make ya frequency switch different gears
I am not in years, I am not in math
I am something else that these fuckas cannot grasp
I am in that question that they scared to ask
I am in that weapon that they scared to blast
I am code switchin like that wino
Who got shine though when he downs the flask
Code switchin like Shango
Brandishin the Ax
{Chorus}
