[Havoc]


Yeah, say it (say it) uh-huh
I'm the illest

Yeah, yo




I gotta be a I'll nigga, with no denyin
How the FUCK I get this crowd movin without even tryin?
Made it out the projects, against all odds


Went from, ridin these trains to coppin expensive cars


And even so, all this shit don't make me better than y'all
It only means that I work harder than the average nigga
Never sat around for handouts, I watched and observed


Then quickly rubbed my eyes, if my vision got blurred


I coulda sold drugs (yea yea) 'til I got bagged and jailed
Out of sight, out of mind, niggaz locked feel me like braille

(Feel me) While everybody was chillin

I was broke like a motherfucker, loyal to my vision


Knowin that I'd be on top or somewhere close to it
Nigga, my livin quarters'll be the thing to prove it!

And vowed once I got there to never ever lose it

Let my, head get big and slack off on my music

I'm the illest!



[Chorus: Havoc]

"We done seen it all, done been through it all yo" -> Prodigy

I'm the illest

"Let y'all niggaz know right now, word to mother f'real" -> P

No doubt, cause I'm the illest

"We done seen it all, done been through it all yo"

Cause I'm the illest

"Let y'all niggaz know right now, word to mother f'real f'real"



[Havoc]

You know I..

Come through with that seven-four pound I
Voice activated, know these whities just hate it


Thinkin I'm a drug dealer, how else could he cake it?

BITCH, my shit legit, plus I invested in stocks

So if this rap dough stop (yea) the show won't stop (uh-uh)

Believe me there's more ways than a few to make it pop (word)


You gotta have it in you, bring it out once it's needed (yea)
I won't stop 'til I'm famous, hostin shows with Regis (that's right)
Be strategic, live it shit it and breathe it


It's my world, my game won't be defeated

(C'mon, give it to me give it to me)

Keep them checks comin, thoughts flowin

Words blowin, hoes goin, Havoc always holdin

First one to fuck in back of the Porsche truck

Lord knows how many babies that chick coughed up


If you asked my enemies they would say it was all luck

That's why you see, mixed emotion when my name's brought up
Cause I'm the illest



[Chorus]




[Havoc]
Yo, you know you I'll when you can kill two birds (yea)
With one stone alone and slowly emerge


From the deep depths of jealousy and envy's domain
Make chips then stash for the days it rain


Never cry and survive the pain (that's right)

Though shit looked impossible, to an, eye untrained

Nothin to lose, and know the game, be proud of yourself

Remind yourself, say it to yourself, say it

I'M THE ILLEST


[Chorus]
