What is a real hip-hop mc?
Is it mtv, is it bet?
Is it five m-i-c's

When you act like property?
Tell me, how do you judge an mc when he's rockin

Spend your money on mc's cause these rappers'll do ya

When you ask for that autograph they ass-dash quick
Beware of the rapper, he talks like it don't m
