Alright listen, Im back again cause that's what you required of
Me steady rhyming, and Im so sick and tired of
Being forced to put suckers in their place
You make me mad enough to punch you in the face
But Im not trying, so never sound like I don't bone to pick with you
Show and prove that you can stand on your own two
I speak the poetry, dissing those who keep on quoting me
Try to play me, cease it, you don't know me
So smile in my face, behind my back take a line or two
Im not an idiot, so who you think you lying to?
Queen latifahs here to lay the law down
So speed it up or shake it around because it's a showdown
The 45 king is arising, suprising, hypnotising star, he's up to par
So I hope youve prepared yourself for what you're in for
This is latifahs law

Bmws and gold rope chains don't impress me
Or get you closer to the point you can undress me
Get skeezed, you nose will bleed, that's how they live life
Prepare to feel the wrath of the giver of all life
Fire and desire make you go a little higher
When I grab the wire of the mic
And get hype, Im sorry you sound dot
Cause I roll like the homicide squad
You must be broke and, hoping that Im soft but Im dope and
Left you in the litter to consider coping with
Life, it's trife yeah, but these things happen
You need to make it better, stop trying to be the mack again
Get a grip on the african way
Cause there's a sucker born every day
Crimes the way for you to see what the queen saw
And this is latifahs law

Now dj mark made up a beat that he can bring you
And I of course supply the rhyme that you can swing to
The flavor unit keeps all, and keeps a way to band
And slides keep the hardcore fall, cause Im heavy-handed
Whip out a .45 caliber pen and begin
A funky message from beginning to end
Peace be to africa, can't forget my other land
Wont fulfill my heart unless I speak about the motherland
You say you're living right, but we know it's nonsense
In case you forgot, just check your conscience
At showtime, I blow lines, you don't get yours, I get mine
Your showtimes, you behind, the queen latifah divine
Rule number one: don't step across the line that I drew
Number two: don't take credit for something that you didn't do
Number three: check your heart, every man has a call
Its time for me to go, but I'll be back, yall
