Put one in the air (heir) like the king's son
For the heir to the kingdom
That means I'mma be the king once the king done
If he don't wanna leave then I might have to guillotine him
I sing some but I (w)rap a lot like the king's son
Microphone checker all across the board you should king him
Diamond mine my mind make princesses like king come (cum)
Every second worth of thinking
Is enough to fill three rings like ring lungs?
That's how I kept it on the air is like a re-run
And kept the kings comin in obscene sums
You see for me it's life or death like a king thumb
Mean something
That's why I don't play when I relay like a team run
And treat every single day like a scene one
Outlook on life like I ain't never seen none

Post coast to coast gotta dose of every lingo
The latest famous 80's baby like the dingo
Who evaded pushing daisys, dodge bullets like Remo
Remember like dinkle when we used to play bingo
Used to be in awe with the pushas and the pimps oh
Now I flip cars like the ribs on the Flinstones
Haters got mad and as sensitive as shinbones
Had a Goodyear and my intention is to blimp on
Even if I'm injured I'm gonna limp into the end zone
From game one to the super like were in dome

That mean I went to Disneyworld and you just went home
It's Lupe and I ain't from there
But they root for the away
Yeah they stunt there
Beautifully I play
Gatorade the coach and tubas need to play now
Usually I stay, put em on the roof with more truth for me to say

The laboratory happy for me cause I'm back with my belongings
Ferrari 'bout as ready as when Keri was the prom queen
Think outside the box like Larry Merchant, Don King
The glacier in Jamaica or a penguin out in Palm Springs
Yeah, keep em in the air like a swan wing
And Im'a keep it magic as a Harry Potter wand swing
And my little shop with my Terry Cotter pot
You be talkin' bout your kush, you should come and here my 'larm sing
So put them up like a robbery
A Derrick Rose lob to me
And which and see I alley-oop it properly
Football or volley-b, hock-el-y, or sock-el-y
You just get the rock to me
Try and put me down like Gaddafi over Lockerbie
I'll lock you in a locker b
Like Bruce Leroy, like Johnny in a locker see
Shock is the only thing that 2Pac is toppin me
Hottest rockin bottoms or kill em where your lava beExplain


Thanks to s
