A throwback to hip-hop's golden era.

lyrics

[Chorus 1X - Zellust]
NYE Prepare the Quarterly
Plans made accordingly
No need for government extorting me
My neighborhood supporting me
We runnin the block
Give you more of that real hip-hop
It don't stop, we keep it raw

[Dirt Gritie]
Oh it's so sweet like the first time I nutted out
Shorty turned her head said she wouldn't take it in the mouth
On the couch, laid out living life with no fear
Ain't got a penny in my pocket at the video premier
Still I live with my decisions and have no regrets
If it means I'll be a man that they'll never forget
Thank Arlo for his vision Sly for his respect
While most live in the moment we be living the next
Subject to my debate is just too complex
My body of work could fill a reader's digest
So I'll just speak my peace while you digest
Rice and Gritz cause you know that we vibe best
But I'm just trying to do my thing
While you want me to do nothing
Well you bluffing, big guns, ain't got ammo
Our pens got ink and they spit like camels

[Chorus 2X - Zellust]
NYE Prepare the Quarterly
Plans made accordingly
No need for government extorting me
My neighborhood supporting me
We runnin the block
Give you more of that real hip-hop
It don't stop, we keep it raw

[Arlo Maverick]
I pen a personal narrative and welcome you to hear it kid
The rareness of a lyricist the reason that they cherish this
Like sun sets but one less and we're reminded
The lust fest of success is clearly blinding
Taken for granted till it's lost in the woods
The paradigm of mortality is never withstood
So we cling to the idea that we'll never get old
Living minute by minute till the promise unfolds
Cut your losses, I'll count my blessings
Family, food, shelter, the clothes that I'm dressed in
Flows of perfection there I go again
Apologies to the fans it's my next of kin
Meditate, with sips of green tea
We all got our vices, mine just happens to be
Far from the stereo, type-casted from "Here We Go"
But I'm a "Rock This Way", until I see my burial

[Chorus 2X - Zellust]
NYE Prepare the Quarterly
Plans made accordingly
No need for government extorting me
My neighborhood supporting me
We runnin the block
Give you more of that real hip-hop
It don't stop, we keep it raw

[Zellust]
Moving in the Mega City where the crooks all play
Took the bus downtown that shit took all day
Writing hooks on the train, reading books the whole way
Inspired by graffiti, hip-hop's on display
I'm sayin, sometimes I leave the car in the drive way
To come down to earth and get off of the highway
Cause you can catch a blessing when you move in that street car
Give an old lady a seat, it'll reach far
See my reflection in the person I would normally pass by
This drunk homeless man with a glass eye
I see myself in the people in the city
Keep them close to me that's why my neighborhood supportin' me
Only God can judge me, no court for me
I got the keys for extortion, no extorting me
Life's a bitch and the system is a hoe to me
So I be pimpin' them accordingly, biyach

[Chorus 4X - Zellust]
NYE Prepare the Quarterly
Plans made accordingly
No need for government extorting me
My neighborhood supporting me
We runnin the block
Give you more of that real hip-hop
It don't stop, we keep it raw
