lyrics

Verse One:

01 Aye yo I represent it, yo I be a tad demented
02 wait ‘til dope styles fermented, just before I cement it
03 just to reassure I meant it, blended perfectly
04 not concerning me: is your weak ass record
05 what’s up with that gimp style? Oh it’s prosthetic
06 your style makes me sick, & I defile all your rhetoric
07 you’ll get disrespected when you least expect it
08 you’ll get decapitated cuz your brain is infected
09 you’re exaggerated, overrated & degenerate
10 my lyrics is fat, while yours is anorexic
11 all your hype, gets embedded, in your skull
12 I’ma conquer like Kull, but get to my head, I won’t let it
13 More problems get presented? More solutions get invented
14 aggressions gotta get vented, before I start to regret it
15 comprehend it? It’s the control & the credit
16 perfectly complimented, that’s why I’m keeping it independent
17 you meddling with a force you can’t hang with
18 you delving in the realms of darkness & think
19 that you be at the helm & yo you think that you slick
20 yo you not & yo I’m ‘bout to rock your shxt!

Chorus One:

01 You think you got it locked down, but yo I breeze right in
02 my mind’s so quick, it’s like I could freeze lightning
03 harnessing the chaos, when I be writing
04 then break it on down, for all ya’ll to see
05 yo it’s the skeleton key, yo it’s the skeleton key
06 yo it’s the skeleton, uh the skeleton key
07 yo it’s the skeleton key, yo it’s the skeleton key
08

Verse Two:

01 Aye yo I’m just a man! Scratch that, the immaculate
02 rhyming so hot, that I could win a beauty pageant
03 I’ll get you spastic, or laid back like Craftmatic
04 automatic, let me go off on this tangent
05 you’ll get stuck like static, or stuck like a magnet
06 stuck like you’re behind an accident in rush hour traffic
07 you'll get stuck like a hatchet, or stuck like a cabinet
08 stuck like the bill you get, when someone stole your plastic
09 My time is valuable so please don’t elapse it, with out advancing it
10 or your throat, I’ma collapse it
11 I’m adamant, for this art form, I’m passionate
12 saving Hip-Hop? I’m trying to save the damn planet
13 & see how dope I can get, yo, I’m running rampant
14 forever attacking it, trying to contain the contaminant
15 you think that you slick, plus you living slanted
16 so you ‘bout to fall off, so yo start to panic (yo start to panic)
17 I’m worser than your worst enemy (enemy)
18 because I burst exponentially
19 yo you talking about a dope emcee, you besta mention me
20 & it’s my policy, to rock the skeleton key!

Chorus Two:

01 You think you got it locked down, but yo I breeze right in
02 my mind’s so quick, it’s like I could freeze lightning
03 harnessing the chaos, when I be writing
04 then break it on down, for all ya’ll to see
05 yo it’s the skeleton key, yo it’s the skeleton key
06 yo it’s the skeleton, uh the skeleton key
07 yo it’s the skeleton key, yo it’s the skeleton key
08 yo it’s the skeleton, uh the skeleton key
