[Intro]
"Hey sucker nigga, whoever you are"
"Hey sucker nigga, whoever you are"
"Hey sucker nigga, hey sucker nigga"
"Whoever you are, whoever you are"


[Verse 1: Q-Tip]
I be hating sucker MCs, and the sucker niggas
Posing like they hard when we know they damn card
What you figure, rhyme-wise I do the figure eight so concisely
Musically we are the herb so sit back and enlighten me
Inhale...

My style is kinda fat reminiscent of a whale
Young girls desires older female dreams
I be the Abstract Poetic representing from Queens
Socially I'm not inane, black and white got game
If you came to the jam, well I'm glad you came

[Hook]
Aiyyo Shaheed, take us the fuck outta here

[Spoken Outro]
You're not any less of a man, if you don't pull the trigger
You're not necessarily a man, if you do
