On records for ten years, I can hardly believe it
Never thought I'd be perceived, as just some rapping school teacher

from R.A. The Rugged Man (Ft. J-Live) – Give It Up Lyrics on Rap Genius


J-Live first appeared on the underground hip-hop scene in 1995, releasing his first single “Longevity”. This song, “Give It Up”, was released in 2005, so it’s been 10 years.


Although he has been in the game for so long, he’s still not perceived as a rap legend, but rather as a school teacher who raps. Reference to the line R.A. spat on his verse.

On a record with J-Live, I could hardly believe this
I never thought I’d be rapping on no record with school teachers
