Lyrics

- VERSE -So you want me to hit the club & do a little 'lean back'?/swallow all of your bullshit and fake like I eat that/you want me to go blind and not see this industry's trap/like "here, hand us your career if you want your cheese rat"?/you want me let you run my program like I don't have no plans/be somebody else's voice and brainwash my own fans/you wanna tell me what's best for me like "yo, do this instead of that!"? sign over my life and never get it back? Never that!/been a pleasure doin' business, but you know where you can stick it/cuz I ain't sellin' my soul, even if it means it'll probably get me rich quick/you got me all wrong thinkin' I'm in this for the jewelry/like I'm tryin' to make my first couple mil and spend it foolishly/whoever's just tryin' to look like everybody else is who it be/but throwback jerseys and hats don't have shit to do with me/how many cats in the mainstream really got talent? too few it seems/on a scale of 1-10, i'd give you puppets like a 2 or 3/there's no originality now, it's all the same old nonsense/video hoes with no clothes, even the rappers wanna be topless/and America's lovin' every minute, they don't really wanna stop this/we want conscious rap, but they want rap without a conscience/- HOOK -D - Even if it means I don't get paidV - Even if I gotta stay undergroundS - I'm happy here, I never said I wanted outAnd I'm - tellin' all you muthafuckaz right nowD - Don't ever get me twisted with Hip-PopV - Vicious emcees don't ever quit and runS - This is just a sample of things to comeAnd I'll - Never put this muthafuckin' mic down- VERSE -I really hate to sound like I'm hatin', but this industrys creating/a complicated situation for so many tryin' to make it/their so busy celebratin' that their shit's in heavy rotation/on TV and radio stations that their egos inflating/so instead of makin' a statement with the music they makin'/it's been replaced by Hip-Hop for the enjoyment of corporations/that's why so many albums got so many fuckin' collaborations/to put a smile on every face that'll end up splittin' the paycheck/so if you only like them catchy tunes playin' in the club 2nite.../...I don't give a fuck what you like/you think these poppy emcees got skills cuz these days that shit is "hot"?.../...it wouldn't be if Pac didin't get shot/assassin on the mic and I'm-a keep spittin' 'til their good riddens.../...try me if you think I'm bullshittin'/I'm-a make all my opinions public, hate it or love it.../even if it means I never make it, fuck it/I'll pledge allegiance to the Hip-Hop community/and every true emcee I've learned from who's influenced me/all my family and friends who push me to pursue the dream/shout out to my brother Yak, Verbal Assassins 2 & 3 4ever/- HOOK -D - Even if it means I don't get paidV - Even if I gotta stay undergroundS - I'm happy here, I never said I wanted outAnd I'm - tellin' all you muthafuckaz right nowD - Don't ever get me twisted with Hip-PopV - Vicious emcees don't ever quit and runS - This is just a sample of things to comeAnd I'll - Never put this muthafuckin' mic downPlay '2 CENTS' on YouTube Play '2 CENTS' on iTunes / Apple Music Play '2 CENTS' on Spotify Play '2 CENTS' on CD Baby Play '2 CENTS' on Amazon
