I’d like to make special, special dedication
To all of special, special people
That did all special, special things
Especially in the name of times
In K.R West
Can’t forget slept with a W fresh
A Big shot upon freestyle from the shit thirty pieces

Let’s do this for the people
Let’s make your mommas proud 2X
Let’s do this for the people
Let’s do, let’s do it now

Back in a day when I was a teenager
Before I had status in a true way pager
You go find witness in a two trap conquest
They’ll know it everywhere we wanna do this

You see, you gotta understand that things going cycle
Justin Timberlake is just a new form of Michael
It’s cold inspiration, that’s the way it be
Without a Jay Z’s are probably wouldn’t be no Peas

So wanna do this for those that inspired me to be
And multi faded me, to store my legacy
I give a shut up to my man Ezze E
A big R.I.P, cause he believed in me

He put me down back in 1993
And now I grab mic and rock the party
I got Joys and Cheers for Pea by ease
Pea by ease short for family, they are people

Let’s do this for the people
Let’s make your mommas proud 2X
Let’s do this for the people
Let’s do, let’s do it now

Praise with a key let me blow this track
I gotta pay homes to my P. Way back
How will Lil’ Kim are huntin’ the rap game
And now the dreams are same, but the game is changed

Back in ‘88 before first grade
I used to battle on the block as a people on break (Yeah)
And heavy woman puss I use to wash the bush
Use to leave Kung Fu down in Rock n Bloom

Hip Hop … not the key belong
Or less then saying unity over the bar
You want the spot when my mic is on
I was a good life foundation filling was fun

I can’t go on, so I don’t get left behind
I can’t go on, so I don’t get forgot my time
I can’t go on, so I could just bless your mind
I can’t go on, for the people busting my rhyme

Let’s do this for the people
Let’s make your mommas proud2X
Let’s do this for the people
Let’s do, let’s do it now

Spotted In my room back in ‘89
Free styling in the sub for exercising the mind
Just cooling with my crib brand new be arise
and then braking and try be on a nation

Digging in a placement with DJ More inpatient
Live and direct Kono radio station
Rockin’ with a fan do it short for fez
Mic in my hand, standing in my stand

Whoever thought that the peas will spread like a disease
And affect a whole blow, with a poster’s soul
This is for the people that loves the P sound
We still make the music we’re holding it down

This is dedicated to the Poll crush
If it wasn’t for yo, then wouldn’t be us
This is dedicated to your TFO
Grand Master flash and burned slow

Let’s do this for the people
Let’s make your mommas proud 4X
Let’s do this for the people
Let’s do, let’s do it now
