Oddisee – Slow It Down lyrics
[Verse 1]
I speak faster than I think often
Time is hard for me to build with ni66az
That get to talking like cheap plaster awesome
Either I'm a deep bastard or as shallow as defeat
At shore of the beach where you chill or you sink after
Sure I got a lot of faults
But my lines ensure that I don't break apart
I got live bolts a few screws loose
You got be a little crazy when you making art
See risk takers get a bigger piece of a pie
Them other guys get a peace sign and depart
Residing in the dark I'm here to outshine em
Y'all all up on a ni66a, oh yeah?
About time go ahead i'm about mines'cause I bout with my mind
Till outcomes the prime
Example of a nigga that gamble the love of rhymes

And mixed it with the grind of a hustler in the park
Word to my pops if y'all ni66az in my way I'm a mother f*cking shark
And y'all ni66az in my waves, I cut my braids
See me touching up my fade, a ni66a sharp
I learn to play my part 'cause I've been practicing my script
And as these bammers watch my flick I hope they're practicing their praise
'cause I'ma take the crown like nowish
Where prowess like I ain't gotta be afraid
I'm getting paid for my music ain't that a blessing
A lotta ni66az never got to ball interception
See I was tall so I had to power forward
Behind me is a sideline and ni66az outta breath and
I'm breathing light to the game that I've been playing
Its no question youngin I've been sayin
That longevity is key and as I stand alone
My legs tired I think I'll have a seat on the throne

'cause I'm rolling, I'm cruising
I'm groovin, I'm moving all too fast
Let me slow it down , its all too fast
Well let me slow it down
'cause I'm rolling I'm cruising
I'm groovin, I'm moving
All too fast, I slow it down
All too fast, well let me slow it down

[Verse 2]
Oh you wanna know which one I love more
You or music I think that kind of question stupid
Imagine choosing b'tween something I'm producing
And you that's win win into a loser loosing
I rather a twin, double you
Girl loving you's like lovin lootch you my muse
Help me find a gem find a groove like Sly and em
And if we don't work out its guaranteed
I'll be dubbin you
'cause you the protoype
I'd rather hold the mic with form
Than let you spend another night alone
That sound cold as minnesota nights
But to get this money that we spend
I gotta spend another night in Rome
Another tour another stage another flying now
I'm on tour accumulate the frequent-flyer miles
Pick a destination I'll take you to the top
From above the only time you can admire down
