    It’s time for me to annihilate

    And ventilate

    like I’m one of the late greats

    I’m about to eat lyricism

    Is back on the plate

    Diss and my response

    Is more potent than LLs

    on Canibus faith

    Hip hop was dead

    filled w wack mcs

    So I attended the wake

    Sometimes what ya haven’t heard

    is worth the wait

    Kendrick in the art of war

    I know this track was bait

    I aint flowing on this record

    To build a career

    But to be part of the debate

    For one the best mc of the year

    Picasso with the flow

    Pictures for your ears

    I’m head of these rap niggas

    They light years in the rear

    Im wordplay genius

    Built on no roids nor biogenesis

    Forget a Jay Electronica feature

    I rather be the godfather

    to his illuminati fetus
