Classified – Listen lyrics
Listen, Listen, Listen
Ya, Ya, Yo

[Verse 1: Classified]
Now When I Speak Truth, I Get Labelled As A asshole
Say What I See, Talk What Class Knows
Everybody Wanna Sit On The Plateau, They Never Grow Up
Stay Young, And Act Out
Never Back Out, don't Make Assumptions
Tracks Hit And I Still Spit Substance
Yes Y'all, Straight Killin The Public
Over The Top With Next To No Budget
Kids' Tight, But Gotta Stay Focused
Rip Mics, Ripped Off By Promoters
Handle My Biz (Ok) Keep Hands Clean
I Roll Wit A Crew, But I'm A One Man Team
And, doesn't Matter If You Think I'm Hot Or Not
Just Keep Talkin Bout Me At The Barber Shop
No Names Drop, That Can Give You Props
Don't Be Jealous, Some Day My Reign Will Stop
But Until Then I'm Still Gunna Do This
Without Music, I'm Basically Useless
Stand Here For Another 10 Years
Wit A Mic In My Hand And A Beat In My Ear

Now Let Me Make Myself Clear, Been Lonely Here For A
Need To Get This Off Of My Mind, Just Let Me Handle My
I'm Takin It One At A Time, I've Just Begun So Man Listen
So Listen, So Listen, So Listen, Listen, Listen

[Verse 2: Classified]
Never Fall Off, Class don't Spit It
Freestyle For Hours,

Talk Trash, Kid I Aint Get It
Aint A Funny Guy, But I Leave You In Stiches
And I'm'a Say It, Mcs Are bitches
Always Complain Every Time We Spit shit
Or Some Women, Guys Have Been Dissin
Damn, I Do It Too And Aint Afraid To Admit It
Feels Like The Whole World Just Flipped Around
I Know Kids Used To Hate, Now Give Me Pounce
Same Time I Know Kids Used To Love Me
Made Moves, Now They can't Stop Actin Ugly
But That's Hiphop, Your Average Fan
Stay Underground, Be The Favorite Band
Guess It Feels Like They Found Somethin New
But When Other People Like It, They Start Hating You
And That's Hiphop, Embrace My Words

[X2:] Listen, Listen

And I Know What I've Done, Media Ignores Me
I've Done More Than The Artist In Your Story
Go Ahead, Don't Bother To Support Me
There's So Much Hate In My Own Territory
I'll Still Lay Tracks To Rest
Live, In Effect, Class In The Flesh, Man
I Should Teach Rappin Steps
Sell It To Whack Council, Paperback And Secs, Yes
I'll Do What I Need To Survive This
Aint Goin Back To The 9 To 5 Shifts
Smoke Too Much Weed, And I'm Tryin To Be The Loudest
Tryin To Make Noise, But I Move In Silence

[Chorus X2]
