Track Name: Who Are You?
verse 1
niggaz is puppets for the public.-
i inhale helium. trying to rise above it.-
So tell me how you see'in'em! I rose to thee occasion.-
& before tigga, i brought flows from the basement.-
whose in my way? nelly, nas or jay?
i came to take the spot. like it or not-
Watch! time is money & im raceing the clock.-
soo much talent in the streetz, had me chaseing the bloc.-
so i left dope alone, the stroll & the gunz.-
concentrated on rap & stacking my 1's-
(What the fuck!) Who's this keep yellin pac's name?
like his blood run sraight thru yall veins-
it's just a gateway for y'all to get more fans-
no gimmicks wit mine & for a limited time,-
i'll let yall shine, then darken your career-
what's the past is the past (dude)this is my year.(move!)
make way for the king of detroit city-
not royce da 5'9" nor marshall it's me. Phillies!-
a thousand pair's of eye's could'nt see phillies-
& even if i'm soning you, can't be phillies!-
(Hook)
Who R U?
hustla, thief or crook?-
rapper, gun clapper? take another look-
what you think you see aint what you see!-
regaurdless! money is thee objection. no question-
(repeat)
Verse 2
niggaz is gased up. fantasy living-
listen it's way too hot in here. stay out the kitchen!-
im seriuos man. how you gon play wit the system?
Get'cha grams up! acting like you're the victim-
you ain't paid dues. you sitting on yor ass @ home-
while niggaz like me my niggaz carry the load?
they say one gets what one deserves.-
your crew a charity case. i'm action without words-
i'm stevie franchies. i see through these rap guys-
i'm eating eating mc's. you're reeses pieces in snack size-
can't ignor what phillies bring to the table-
it's cooked & ready to serve. i've put in work for my label-
i feel i deserve, to be one of raps elite-
my spots reserved, but first,I'll capture the streetz!-
there ain't a nigga in the D causing havoc but me-
if it ain't dough? don't matter to me!-
i'm aiming for the top! you a step latter to me-
they know P from the block! i'll shatter you're screen-
lil wanna be's. CD thugs on T.V.-
i'm bringing the whole Motor city wit me. (it's phillies!)-
(Hook)
Verse 3
Rage! silent murders cock the guage! blaze the phill-
i'm & watch me spit venom in here-
my alliance when i'm writing's my pen. this life of sin?
got me clutching gats, wit the law on my back-
i'm wildin! like teenager filled with anger-
belle island! where you would be sure to find danger-
i came up wit thugs even them murder mommies-
they all posse. want beef? they all got me-
yo crew sloppy. pussy probably, killumanati! -
you can't stop me. the best you can do is copy.-
or six-shot me! further more, i play the boss-
my reptoire's :what ever want, i can get it!-
P babe the illest. flow sickest-
use less metaphore's than most niggaz. so nigga!_
i'm still touching the streetz & all of yo niggaz-
i'm a pro! spittin or chrome? go figure.-
you live? it's only gon get you ghost quicker-
& i heard you in the studio. sweet? your flow's bitter-
ain't no nigga like the one you got here!
so vigor. i got it locked here!-
the buck stops here. we run blocks here-
hit clubs they throw they hands up, like the cops here!-
from east 2 west coast, i spit so rediculous-
spaecial deliver this shit, like st. nichoalas-
conspicuous. you just made my shit-list-
breath on'em! triple team on'em!-
leave you leanin on ya man's. see how much you bleed on'em-
then, cut off his arms. make short-sleeves on'em-
talk slick get dealt wit! easy! believe me phillies-
run the city. who wit me?-
