Brother With A Purpose lyrics

{b-side of n.p.g.}
Mc t on a hit and to make sure I dont miss,
Kick the beat as this fool persists

Step off me, get the hell off, well Im riding
Flowing with this funky beat, you suckers keep on tryina
Diss this, uh-uh, I aint having it
Sucker duck, understand my schedule work too heavy
Im a man, I mean, sometimes it seems hammer claim
But I can still cop a lean and explain to you
An mc whos got beef, Im giving grief to disbelief
You said that I was new to this well put me on your hit list
Im quipped to rule, and I squash all the bull

We got our own ideas!
We got our own ideas!
Yeah

Antogonistic action, its just a fraction
Of what I feel for you, Ill take my time in a rhyme
Yo, lets bust a move, Im steppin with confidence
Yes I know its evident, a backseat to you thats irrelevant
You see its like this, you shot and missed, and now its my turn
You learn, you mess with the fire, you burn. and its a heat up
Situation sticky
Youre the duck, huh, I wont be picky, Im bassin
Youre chasing a dream that Im livin
You stupid pigeon, cause even with the high flow, I keep a low pro
You step off on me, and thats a sho nuff n.o.
I mean a no-go
Yeah, something like that

We got our own ideas! (yeah, yeah)
We got our own ideas! (yeah, yeah)

Fuck it, youre tryin to step on my tip, yeah

{on top of a slow npg chorus:}
Im a brother with a purpose (pump it up, t)
So Ill take my time and serve this right
Despite the negativity,
Never want society to get the best of me
You sold out, just another fool, holdin out
On the pockets of my brothers tryin to get clout
Step back, cast the vapors, your visions blurred, check out my behaviour
Calm, cool, never sweat the issue (so what youre saying? )
What Im saying is that were past due
Gotta stand up and be counted, cant you see the trouble keeps mountin, boy
And I wont stand for it, so get off
Cause Im about to have a fit
You cant step unless you step legit
Enough talk yall, this is it, lets get ill with this
Yeah, yeah

Suckers are trying to step off on my tip
We got our own ideas!
Suckers are trying to step off on my tip
We got our own ideas!
Suckers are trying to step off on my tip
We got our own ideas!
Suckers are trying to step off on my tip

As I roast, you toast - cant stand the heat of the aftermath
The worst you ran with you dis just to get a laugh
The brother you ridiculed,
They say youre the king of rules
Yeah, time for school, time for walking,
Im stalking, youre talking
As you run your mouth down, Im chalking up another way of
Gettin paid in dividends
In the end, my friend, its just a verbal blend
Yeah, get with that

Whats up?
We got our own ideas! (yeah)
Whats up?
We got our own ideas! (yeah)

Brothers be jocking, freaks keep clocking
Brothers be jocking, skeezers are clocking

We got our own ideas!
Skeezers be on my tip (yeah)
Trying to get with this
We got our own ideas!
Skeezers be on my tip (yeah)
Trying to get with this
Skeezers be on my tip (yeah)
Trying to get with this
Skeezers be on my tip (yeah)
We got our own ideas!

Trying to get to this
Clocking, I got my own ideas,
And they aint got nothing to do with whats in here
See ya next year, 91, in full effect
Im getting ignant
(yeah, yeah)

We got our own ideas! (yeah, yeah)
