I*know I, know I, know (sample* repeats) [Verse

1] Feel
free to hate me and to doubt me but, until you stood behind my plate And
peep the way I truly swing you, could never out me See
opinions, are like rap careers Everybody's: got one And
most of 'em out to zip even, less if it's a hot one Like
the radio songs that make us sing along 'Cause
the beat is real heavy and the hook is real catchy Make
you nod your head steady and, you don't feel sketchy 'Til
you're all by yourself and, you ridin' around And
realize to yourself how stupid it sounds Mainstream
or Underground away, team home, town It
boils down to the facts Wack: is wack Camby
can't hold Shaq and, a party ain't a party if You
don't bring a sack Or
your own 12-Pack or this 12 on the wax I
detail every track to make a sentence sparkle Giving
thoughts to the thoughtful but, I don't know How
I know how to pull these diamonds outta charcoal I
just know [Chorus]

I
*know I, know I, know Think*
you do when you don't 'cause uh I.
*know I, know I, know Think*
I don't when I do but uh I.
*know I, know I, know Think*
you do when you don't 'cause uh [Verse.

2] It's
knowledge of self knowing, what you can and you can't do And
knowing to play the hand that God chose to hand you I
plan to double down when my turn comes around I
suggest you do the same you, can't take these chips with you So
it's best to play the game while there's breath up in your frame Judge
to death be the name so, I modern-day confuse For
you Latter Day souls promote, the type of fun That
makes your Saturdays whole grey, matter turn gold With
the stroke of a pen help, your spirit verge free Before
it chokes from within me, I'm cloaked in my sin So
I decorate my shrow so, the tat on my arm Is
the badge of a proud B-Boy, gone wild In
the rap sense of child born in '78 So
I know no other culture just to set the record straight I'm
a vandal B-Boyin' turntable, destroyin' Right
now it's the skills with the mic I'm employin' 'cause
I [Chorus]

[Verse

3] I
know tomorrow's not promised so handle business while you can I
know a friend's not a friend just because he lends a hand I
know a man's not a man if, he has to beat his woman I
know she'll push you to the point where you feel she had it comin' I
know you both love each other so a brawl would be senseless I
know this 'cause I lived it and, I mean every sentence I
know that 25 to Life is a very long time I
know that that's the reason that I have to go for mine I
know that waitin' on no man is the scheduled flight of time I
know that time is unfair when I listen to Sublime I
know that my time is comin' so I gotta keep runnin' I
know that our time is now so let's have a little fun and I
know you gotta feel me or, my fate is soon to seal me I
know that cigarettes and alcohol are out to kill me I
know I gotta quit but, not right know I
know I gotta quit but, I just don't know how I; just [Chorus]
