Verse 1
What absurd strategy is this?
Send down a handful of warriors
Let's see if their blood is the same color as ours
Verse 2
Watch me appear on the field, my mission is to chill
I'n'I think 'bout the vibes and not about the dollar bill
I been busy on my rhymes, put some on a layaway
What makes me happy like Caribbean carnival on labour day
I love my mama, the hip hop shit we kick is thick
And if you trip you jealous motherfuckers get the dick
Now we kick in the door, you never heard it before,
Raw battle reports is what ambassadors stand for,
We're making rhymes not war, droppin' lines but don't sniff 'em,
I'm chillin' with my man Max and Sekou on the spliff an',
Reminisin' about the time the Phlow used to rock,
But '98 it's Mellowbag and Freundeskreis to tie the knot,
Blowin' the spot, what, makin' hip-hop what it is
First's supposed to be the fun then later comes the biz
That's what it is when we droppin' part two
It's undisputed rebel troops achieving victories for you
Yes for you and your people, queens and not the cheap ho's,
Commons not Deebos, true friends and not the fake bro's,
We're in it for the love what is dividing us from many,
Breaking through like Shaka Zulu for the heart and not the money
Verse 3
What them wanna do for stop you
Mephisto can't strike we down
The rebel will come through
What them wanna do for stop you
When you're under your meditation and look through
Verse 4
What is this, a game?
For the lack of a better word, general
We call it war
Verse 5
We kick that progress report consort to make it happen
Set up forts in foreign lands expand for everlasting
The fam span across the atlas like diasporas
Escape from out the grasp ot the most wickedest captors
Hear the laughter of the Czars in the dark like Nabokov
Rebellion coup d'etat, shit is raw, cut they heads off
Those who were lost floss now living lavish
Destination be the pastures of the city of Nazareth
Catalyst the revolution move the troops from out pollution
Mobutu citizens get the boot right in they asses
Ambassador status bring the loot back to the masses
Who live like hostages, the system be abusive like the music business is
We exist in the abyss but images be marvellous like novelists
Picture this like hieroglyphics on the fines papyrus
The world is ours but is devoured by the hour
Spread the scripture like Egyptians while the wicked spread the virus
Through the lies I realize the righteous bare my likeness
But they spite us so let the weak recite this
Sow my seed amongst the captives let the fleet complete the cipher
Verse 6
What them wanna do for stop you
Mephisto can't strike we down
The rebel will come through
What them wanna do for stop you
When you're under your meditation and look through
Verse 7
What them wanna do for stop you
Mephisto can't strike we down
The rebel will come through
What them wanna do for stop you
You could never ever out the fire we are walk through
What them wanna do now
Verse 8
Block the enemies shields
Hack holes in his plaque
And aim for the heart
Verse 9
Auf dem Kilimandscharo des Rapszenarios
Spielen wir das Business wie Supermario
Ob Popcenturios in HipHop Studios, was
FK is' furios wie Julio Iglesias
Ich ritt den trojanischen Gaul im Blendwerk der Hölle
Sah die Fäulnis des Biz, blieb im Sattel wie Paul Schockemöhle
Ihr nehmt Rap wie Öde-Pus-sis
Ich mahn' Plattenmultis wie Mullahs Rushdie
Im Jahr 20 nach Guevara brach es aus uns raus wie Lava
Wir nahmen uns Land wie der Sand in der Sahara
Mach' Tabula Rasa wie Kabila in Kinshasa
Mobutu MCs fliegt zum Mars wie die Nasa
Euer erster Gehversuch war 'ne Bruchlandung
Jetzt holt ihr euch ein Reimebuch aus der Buchhandlung
Der Freundeskreis reist und bringt den Virus wie Fernfahrer
Immer wenn es regnet zähl ich Sterntaler, so
Verse 10
What them wanna do for stop you
Mephisto can't strike we down
The rebel will come through
What them wanna do for stop you
You could never ever out the fire we are walk through
Verse 11
What them wanna do for stop you
When you're under your meditation and look through
What them wanna do for stop you
Mephisto can't strike we down
The rebel will come through
