J-Live - Emcee lyrics

Straight from New York where black music was modernized
J-Live all wise and civilized
Always energized
All rights reserved and recognized
All rhymes supersized and come with fries
Stacked with fat backed opinions
Pinpoint accurate reflections
Timeless selections
For your listening pleasures
Where rhymes be the bars minutes or miles can measure
Can you believe I do this shit for a living?

On records, tapes, cds, MP3s
Radios, shows in the states and overseas yo

"E-M-C-E-E" [Rakim]

Know why, cuz I'm a Master of Ceremony
Making a Comeback and Moving the Crowd with Mad Charisma

Controlling your Movement Capaciously
My Capacity to Massacre Crumbs
And Motivate Change Most Certainly Makes you Consider me
Champion, Microphone is Consistently
Modelling Candor of Magnificence
See My Conduct is Mute to Cajolery
I Maintain with Clamency and Manificence
Cunning and Marvelous, Crafty yet Malevolent
To all Cultivators of Mindless Crap
I Really Recognize the Rude Ramblings
Of those Random Riff Raffs cuz they just rap and I

Chorus 4x
"E-M-C-E-E" [Rakim]

"The M" *cut up*
"The C" *cut up*
"The MC" *cut up*

I gonna let you in on how I
"C" on the day to the day doing what I do to these
"M"-icroscopic sitopic ass
Now naysayers think they can stop it I
"M"-ake money and made money even when I
"C" Couldn't make music, I was still makin dollars
And "M"-brace doubt, taking no as a vitamin
"C" Constantly moving motivating and proving
"M" Many are called but few get chosen
"C" Clowns posing in a post and get frozen
"M" More often than not I get hot like
"C"4 on the stage blowing up the spot
Just for "M", her, you and him, All of the Above
"C" It's contagious how the crowd show me love
With a "M"-I-C in my hand
"C" Coming to a venue to you, I better make you say
