Thelonius - Slum Village feat Common

[J Dilla:]
Uhh, yeah, yeah, play at your own risk
Act like you know b_tch I'm on some grown sh_t
Ha, yeah, yeah, play at your own risk
Act like you know b_tch I'm on some grown sh_t
It's the Thelonious, super microphonist
You know us, this rap sh_t we bout to own it
You know it, these Mini-Me's trying to clone us
I got a bonus for the b_tch that run up on us
I got a bonus for your b_tch that run up on us
It's the Thelonious, super microphonist

Uhh, no time to sleep cuz if you sleep you don't eat
Gotta hold heat, just to make ends meet
N_ggas living on the street while other n_ggas feast
Aight wit you it ain't aight wit me
Right, gotta make money all my life
Gotta stay f_cking b_tches many types
Yeah you know what I'm talking bout
Yup, stay turning these b_tches out
D_ck em down also d_ck em out
Throw something down whenever my d_ck's out
They know me so they restructure and reroute
They know me from Washington to down South
All the way to London to my n_gga Common house, right
It's like a game we never play out, out, out, out

[J Dilla:]
N_gga no doubt, n_gga get live or get knocked the f_ck out
Word up, just be about what you about dogg
Knowhatimsayin, just play at your own risk
Act like you know b_tch I'm on some grown sh_t
It's the Thelonious, super microphonist
You know us, this rap sh_t we bout to own it
You know it, cause you can feel it in your throat, say it

I'm bout to let my mind float
(Com, say it)
Get your third eye poked
F_ck game, I assemble dope
Ness, a n_gga that's fresh as the 'fess
Studied this rap sh_t, no need to mic test
You can feel it in your chest
Your B I, feel it in her breasts
Plus you, rhyme like a n_gga wit his nipples pierced
We lick off lyrics in the streets and real n_ggas hear us
Dreamin when I wrote this, box me if I go too wild
Still doin this sh_t like dude in Wild Style
Inviting wack n_ggas to dinner
I Trick Daddy emcees and I don't know, nann n_gga
Who can take it where I take it
You better goin to God like Mase did
Leaving crowds complacent
I move 'em above clouds whether on some surf and turf sh_t
Or thug style you can feel it in your body
Yeah y'all you can feel it in your body

[J Dilla:]
Like if a 12 gauge shottie shell hit your body
You don't want it, need to find your ass a hobby
Carbon copy, n_ggas tryin to clone us
You know us, Thelonious, super microphone
You know this, rap sh_t we 'bout to own it dun, for real

Ay, it's like a ritual
You been invited let the mortal body stimulate the place
With the grace, nevertheless, I stress
Let the music put a smile on your face
As for the ritual, when it comes to spiritual excellence
You know I always leave you with the taste
I know you like it hard to the core
That's what you ask for, you aching for the best
Hurtin like a sore in that ass, like a ritual
Conversation with the most high makes me wanna cry
I wonder why, you wanna get to paradise
But that itty bitty part of you don't wanna die
So pay attention to my word, cause it's the truth
Meditation ease the mind, and brings the youth
It's like a verse you could never read out of a book
Dropping the line in your mind like a fish hook
Word is birth, yo I do it till the break of day
Pay attention to your art, never go astray
Word is bond

[J Dilla:]
Yo we do it and we don't quit
S_cka n_gga you don't want it, it's Thelonious
Owning this rap sh_t, super microphonist and we known to spit
I spit fire like Esther on Sanford and Son did
I'm raw dude, more juice than Sunkist
You want this, see when J get to saying the rhyme flawless
Sh_t fly like MJ in his prime, Off The Wall with mines
I'm grabbing my balls when I rhyme, nine-nines busting plus
Ball all the time, now stay on your mind like great sex
You ain't on my mind I'm thinking bout paychecks
N_ggas large like an 8X Avirex jacket
Connant Gardens they bust like latex sex packets
Emcees they don't rhyme and ball, they lyin' to y'all
They dyin' to ball, the rhyme we do all the time
We do all the fine b_tches they fall in lines
Me and my mans is something like the Source Sports
We gettin money a long time and y'all short
My n_ggas bounce and full rise and y'alls fall
You funny duke, cause really you think you can do me
When you roll a 500 that's really a 320
Should of let somebody else hook it
Numbers look crooked like King Kong shook it
I'm from where n_ggas bang gats when they celebrate
That's how they play, don't let it be a holiday
Thelonious n_ggas, if you testin us we get you laid back
Show you the definition of a payback
