Underground Emceez need money too.........
"Pay me Now........or Pay me Now (those are your options)
I'll never quit this/blessin the world with extra sikknezz/
Prepared to die for hip-hop Jehovah be my Witness/
this music business/is like organized crime/
you got mob bosses draftin contracts in suits and ties/
you got madd spies/,and kats that's pulling straight robberies/
taking royalties with no apology/this shyt's a mockery/
I script a tight verse late night, on some lethal shyt/
and now it's like 30 or forty kats that want a peice of it/
emceez play the whore, record labelz is the pimps/
sending you out on tour to make more money for them/
talkin bout they "promoted you and MADE you hot"/
But I was "hot" throwing darts late night on my block/
before BET.... and MTV's beat suite/
and the phony interviews with Ananda Lewis and Tyrese/
I need my money, fuck all the marketing schemes/
fuck the lavish parties and shiny rings that go "bling"/
I be laughin at all these "Hype Williams" videos/
4 million dollars into a kut that won't even go "gold"/
that's bullshyt/these artists are getting tricked/
everybody making money from his rhymes.... except the lyricist/
Ask "TLC" this industry can rob you blind/
one minute it's vintage wine.....the next it's "CHAPTER 9"/
So I'm all out for the cash, you phony headz can keep the dap/
cause I got family needs, AIN'T NO PENSION PLAN IN RAP/
you only considered underground if you're starving and poor/
but I'm trying to feed MY family so I won't have to ROB YOURS/
So next time an underground emcee drops a new cut/
don't get it bootleg........come up off the 15 bucks!/
Big upz to my Flamethrowaz.......large katz
Big upz to the Vigilante Murcenaries........
Big upz to Cire, Q-Nitty, Utopia, Naiea, Skatta, Flatliner, gehosifat, Civil poet, chinaqua, SirXversity, cite3, Stigmata, New Esco, kane, darkchild, namelessbum, amorphouz, magic one, 1percenter (madd ill),Crimson, Maurice Bin Fischer, Mr. Valentine and Adora (yeah, I'm thinkin' the same thing....talk to you lata)

Have you been taking the devil's advice, AgENT-O?... (Well, whatever.) I'm glad you did this piece, XXL, cuz it's something that's been on my mind. My ex-girlfriend always used to ask me what I wanna be when I grow up. I simply replied, "I wanna be a revolutionary," every, single time. She continually told me "revolutionaries" can't pay the bills.
