lyrics

Five Steez, Mordecai
Check, check
Yes, yes
This is part of my journey
Listen to me
Yow

You talk shit, I live it, what you dreamt of, I did it (yeah)
Fuck a hater or a critic, I use them as a pivot
Treat them like bigots, opinions is useless
Facts is what matters and your work is where the proof is
For years, I been doing this, and many others too (long time)
Repping the movement and running with the toughest crews
So pardon me if I ask who the fuck are you?
You such a fool, you move like a sucker do (uh huh)
Check the catalogue, over the past five years
Amount to many careers, please respect it (you better respect it)
Especially if you never dropped a decent record
Or even a recent effort, you speech is reckless (reckless)
Check my ethics, put in work, stay on point
It don't take much for me to write or lay a joint (uh huh)
The hunger is still here, and I'm more determined
I persevered, and the fire still burning

Chorus (x2):
I work, what about you?
You complain all day, not a damn thing you do
We could never par, you not in my crew
You talk too much so I know you not true

Verse 2:
I wake up, wish I could bake up
Go to slave on the plantation and get my paper
Still sending out applications with my data
Even though I'm dope enough for Complex and The Fader (fi real)
Large Up to Okayplayer, I'm the mayor (salute)
Rhyme sayer, dragon slayer, this is my prayer
I know I'll make it 'cause I believe in it alone
And you hear it in my voice when I spit a poem
With these words, I can beat you like sticks and stones
Or I could reach you just like the teacher Mrs Jones (yeah)
So I hit the studio and play Mordecai beats
I get the truth to flow, it's from the core that I speak
I'm on my grind like my niggaz that's more in the street (uh)
Except it's not my backyard where I'm storing the heat
I'm cooking up rhymes every day, reflecting my life
Signed, sealed, from me to you, this letter I write

Chorus (x2)

Verse 3:
A lot of speculation on the moves I've made (Dem a watch mi)
Niggaz is sounding hurt like they dude got slain
Busy watching me and can't emulate
Trying to get my secrets, wanna interrogate
You hella lame, see through like cellophane
Walking with your head in the sky like aeroplanes
I stay grounded as confident as I'm sounding
Nuff man get boost up because of who deh around dem (uh huh)
And some just pree evil for no good reason (yeah)
Some are just demons, others straight heathens
As long as I'm breathing, I promise to do good
I have faults but I can't do what you could
And that's hate on another for what they work for (nah)
More than a surfer, you a stalker slash lurker
That's why I treat you cold like Serbia, this ain't Persia
I'm independent and we could never have a merger

Chorus (x4)
