R.A. The Rugged Man – It's Gone Lyrics
Yeah, I love this shit
Clark Kent, what up?
S and S
Cowboy from Furious Five
Uh, I raised Box Buggy
You on point Tip?
All the time Phife
There'll never be another Charles Bronson
There'll never be another Godfather after Marlon
There'll never be another kid like Big L coming out of Harlem
Troy ''Trouble'' T-Roy, that was Heavy D boy
Kurtis Blow sang ''Basketball''
Remember in the 90's R. Kelly tried to sound like Aaron Hall
Remember KRS made the ''Stop The Violence'' song?
Then he beat down that fat guy from PM Dawn
Jigga claiming he retired, BIG and Pun I admired
Keeping me inspired and Kanye West always whining and it's tired
D.O.C. the diggy doc lost his vocal chords
Suge Knight smacked Puffy at the Source Awards
Bitches love D'Angelo naked on TV
And he got fat and his mugshot look like ODB
Superhead wrote a book
I'm not a pop artist cause I'm more than just a bullshit beat and a hook
My man Slug from Atmosphere got bitches
''Ice, Ice Baby'' - got his ass beat down by Todd Bridges
The late 80's, the great heavyweight was Mike Tyson
But nowadays he's doing more coke sniffing than fighting
It's all gone
Sunz of Man
Monna Scott, what up, girl?
You making that Missy Misdemeanor money now, huh?
Evil D and war
Lil' Cease, what up?
Tony Thompson from Hi-Five
Rest in peace
We used to be labelmates, brother
Hmm, let's see, Ludacris got hoes
Flavor Flav, Rev Run, Salt and Pepa got reality shows
Madonna did them sex pics with BDK
Now Eve got a porno on the web with Stevie J
Before shiny suits and mink pink furs was born
Murder Mase and Killa Cam was the children of the corn
Fear Of A Black Planet
Everybody wonder how Jermaine Dupree midget-ass is banging Janet
I act a fool like King Tee
I was labelmates with UGK, but never met Pimp C
Nowadays it's all about crack sales and gunspray
Whatever happened to the day of Wise Intelligent and Brother J?
Cool C is on death row and not the label
R. Kelly got in some trouble for robbing a cradle
Mystikal went to jail for rape
I keep the streets on my dick even without no bullshit mixtape
Here's a hard act to follow
They flew James Brown body to Harlem and had his wake at the Apollo
Before DOOM had the mask he was KMD
You ain't heard the best of me yet, y'all just wait and see
The 45 King
You're like the most consistent dude out there
Mash Out Posse
Fame, what up?
Flesh and Bone, Bone Thugs
Marc ''The N-Word'' Nilez
If a beat is too pricey I can't afford it
DJ Quik gave me that Truth Hurts indian beat then Doc Dre bought it
Freddie Foxx' alias is Bumpy
A dude with a fake nose discovered 2Pac, his name was Humpty
Tru Life beefed with Jim Jones
Record sales are way down, but now labels make money on ringtones
Ruff Ryders signed an asian, landscaping
Mentally shape and The Fugees is Haitian
Boogaloo Shrimp played Turbo on Breakin'
How many rappers have I outlasted?
Whatever happened to Pudgee The Phat Bastard?
Take it back just a little while
I used to visit Funkmaster Flex when he was A&R profile
On beats I never get crunk
I'd rather spit on a '70 soul sample sped up like a chipmunk
E-Double The Green Eyed Bandit
DV Alias Christ
Milk and Giz
Give each other a hug, man, y'all are brothers
Smoothe and Trigga
Shabazz the Disciple
Poet & Hot Day
Unique with ''Pure Dynamite''
Capital the Crimelord
