Lyrics Common

You know they be asking 'bout Common, where he at?
What that man doing now?
I'm doing what I do, Hip-Hop
That's what I do

[Verse 1:]
How can I say this, f*ck it I'm the greatest
I am the A-list for all these great debaters
A lot of y'all nah nah, forgot now who I am
The '87 n*gga used to rah rah in the jam
Aw yeah, we put them things in the air
When I drop a single, it's really like a pair
Of Air Jordans, important to the culture
If you ain't true to it, cállate la boca
Get my drink on like a coaster
Post up on the wall that Mike used to live off
Hip-hop Master Cleansin', I'mma get my sh*t off
Rollin' in a Maserati Gran with the lid off
I bit all like a monster, live n*gga this is my encore
Encore, encore, I rhyme for the commoners
My name synonymous with prominence
I'm to Hip-Hop what Obama is to politics
Common is

Yeah, man
Y'all n*ggas man, you soft muthaf*ckers
Yeah my man, muthaf*cker
Then come around my crib
You know where I'm from
Some ho ass n*ggas
Singing all around me man, la la la
You ain't muthaf*cking Frank Sinatra
Uh, lil' b*tch
Yeah, this the raw right here
This the raw right here n*gga
Sweet muthaf*cka
Sweet ass b*tch muthaf*cka

[Verse 2:]
Wa da da da, wa dada dada dang
The C-O double-M O-N, I'm not playin'
Da da man at work, I make my own lane
I'm the franchise so I rock my own chain
No I said give 'em that 80′s cocaine
Somethin' raw, something pure so I stayed in that vein
The hero that he know, that he cold
Like when it's below in the Geo, wipe ya feet off in the Regal
I'm king, observe the throne and the dream
I have it, supreme like mathematics
Yeah, I rep the fresh air for you asthmatic rap addicts
Pro black magic, this is semi-automatic
Rap we won't jam in traffic
The game need direction, I'm here to map it
Uh, some people say that they be missing creativity
But when it come to hip-hop, it begins and ends with me

You know man, you should know where I come from
You should know who I am n*gga
You should never wanna go against me
You know man, you too soft for that man
I be seeing you man, I see it in your eyes man
You ain't the type of n*gga that could go against me
You get in my presence you gon' feel like a little ho
You ain't a man yet, you tryna be somebody else
Man, be yourself man, you come around my crib, you get your sh*t took
Huh! Wherever you go, you probably be overseas in Europe and get yo sh*t took
You's a ho, you know you sweet
Ain't nothing you can do man, people see that man
Broads be seeing you sweet
Done wit' you muthaf*ckas, it's over for you
It's over for you
It's over, sweet muthaf*cka
