It’s Going down – verse 2:
No lights, no camera, but lots of action
No moonwalking backward, kid, like Michael Jackson
Strictly funk flows and steel toed Timb boots to troop
State to state, stage to stage, as I clock loot
Black Asiatic, rapper fanatic, automatic
Black nine mil is what I pack so kill the static
EPMD cranks the sound that thumps underground
You stupid boy, no props here, you catch a beatdown
Hit Squad is still in effect, no record skipping
You stupid boy, keep the track, still shitting
Down with the rap pack, still grabbing my bozack
Here’s a ticket kid to ride the Jim like Amtrak
Got mad skills, hi-tech, been known to snap necks
From eighty-seven to ninety-two, fourth cassette
But now I’m Swayze, ghost, the rap host
Who rip shows, from coast to coast
