lyrics

Who that, the rhyme tru-est/ the flow cool-est/ my moves flu-id/
And those pro-test/ forgive me
Can't understand the man, devised a plan
To put er'one in line like a check stand
Follow me, the leader, I ain't scared to reach ya
Teachers said don't stop, till you meet your equal
I responded like, and if I do?
I gotta push past'em, that was my answer
Sick like cancer, reality is
I bring back quality yall betta acknowledge me
Live with regrets I have no apologies
Just being me, picked like the lottery
Aimin' for the sky high
Still leaning low, when I be ridin' by
And, time is just flying by
Im pass portin' you pass when Im scoring (ha)

Who am I, the Gemini John Blake
Crazy eyes, staring off into space
Came to find, I got what ya'll need
Hypnotic rhythms mixed with Hennessy

Everybody sit down at the round table
Break bread, talk facts, and not fables
I blaze tracks cause thats what im able
To do, no Haitian voodoo
I'm more Zulu, if you tracing my roots
These dudes have no clue, they straight cartoons
Characters of caricatures, get drawn out
Hog tied, laid out, an getting tossed out
Can't feel for ya, I'm numb to it
The Novocaine came, overcame the shame
Ice cold, the cold blooded, my mics gold
Ya fools gold, yea straight frontin
Dastardly, I move with rapid speed
A bull when I lock, no Keanu Reeves
A bull when I rock, cock the hammer squeeze
Please, don't tempt me, im deadly

Who am I, the Gemini John Blake
Crazy eyes, staring off into space
Came to find, I got what ya'll need
Hypnotic rhythms mixed with Hennessy
