Thinkin of a master plan
Cuz ain’t nuthin but sweat inside my hand
So I dig into my pocket, all my money is spent
So I dig deeper but still comin up with lint
So I start my mission- leave my residence
Thinkin how could I get some dead presidents
I need money, I used to be a stick-up kid
So I think of all the devious things I did
I used to roll up, this is a hold up, ain’t nuthin funny
Stop smiling, be still, don’t nuthin move but the money
But now I learned to earn cos I’m righteous
I feel great! so maybe I might just
Search for a 9 to 5, if I strive
Then maybe I’ll stay alive
So I walk up the street whistlin this
Feelin out of place cos, man, do I miss
A pen and a paper, a stereo, a tape of
Me and eric b, and a nice big plate of
Fish, which is my favorite dish
But without no money it’s still a wish
Cos I don’t like to dream about gettin paid
So I dig into the books of the rhymes that I made
To now test to see if I got pull
Hit the studio, cos I’m paid in full

a hip hop MC that, although is the greatest MC of all time, is often overlooked by people that dont realize hip hop has been around since before 1995 (the year 2pac joined death row). he was born in wyandach county in long island, new york. he converted to islam at 14. an example of a rapper that didnt have to have a criminal record to be the greatest.
"i take 7 mcs, put em in a line. then add 7 more brothas who think they can rhyme. but itll take 7 more before i go for mine. now thats 21 mcs ate up at the same time."

by the way. this new excuse for hip hop sucks (especially lil wayne).
rakim's "my melody" is the greatest display of lyrical ability ever.

Simply "The God." No one possessed the poetic ability or wordplay before him, and many have his style embedded in their delivery since.

One of the greatest rappers of all time. He could flow and he didn't have to use any curse words in his rhymes. He could go on for days and days. Always sounded excited/interested in what he was doing, unlike some rappers.
