Canibus - Mic Club Intro lyrics

Enter the Mic Club, this is where it all starts
MCs defend their honour at all costs
Cycle of winners, this ain't for beginners
Front and centre, state your name, rank and business
When I pass you the mic, you better burn it
Don't be squeamish, you want respect you gotta earn it
This is where we define purpose, how much heart lies beneath the surface
What's hidden behind the curtain
Besides tight verses, nothing in life is certain
If you live as long as your words, you make life worth it
Writing rhymes give me a buzz, I do this for the love,
Welcome to the M-I-C Club
