    Planet Earth was my place of birth
    Born to be the sole controller of the universe
    Besides the part of the map I hit first
    Any environment I can adapt when it gets worse
    The rough gets goin the goin gets rough
    When I start flowin the mic might bust
    The next state'll shake from the power I generate
    People in Cali used to think it was earthquakes
    Cause times is hard on the boulevard
    So I bogaurd and never get scared I'm god
    But it seems like I'm locked in hell
    Lookin over the edge but the R never fell
    Or tripped or slipped cause my Nikes got grip
    I stand on my own two feet and come equipped
    Any stage I'm seen on the mic I feind on
    I stand alone and need nothin to lean on
    Goin for self with a long way to go
    So much to say but I still flow slow
    I come correct and I won't look back
    Cause it aint where you from it's where you at
    Even the "Ghetto"

    I learn to relax in my room and escape from New York
    Take a trip through the womb of the world as a thought
    Thinkin how hard it was to be born
    Me being cream with no physical form
    Millions of cells with one destination
    To reach the best part that's life's creation
    Nine months later a job well done
    Make way cause here I come
    Since I made it this far can't stop now
    There's a will and a way and I got the know-how
    To be all there is to be and more
    To see all there is to see before
    I'm called to go back to the essence
    It's a lot to learn so I studied my lessons
    I thought the ghetto was the worst that could happen to me
    I'm glad I listened when my father was rapping to me
    Cause back in the days they lived in caves
    Exiled from the original man and strayed away
    Now that's what I call hard times
    I'd rather be here to exercise the mind
    Then I take a thought around the world twice
    From knowledge the form back to knowledge precise
    Across the desert that's hot as the Arabian
    But they couldn't cave me in cause I'm the Asian
    Reaching for the city of Mecca visit Medina
    Visions of Nefertiti then I seen her
    Mind keeps travelin I'll be back after I
    Stop and think about the brothers and sisters in Africa
    Return the thought through the eye of a needle
    For miles I fought and I just fought the people
    Under the darks skies on a dark side
    Not only there but right here's an aparthied
    So now is the time for us to react
    Take a trip through the mind and when you get back
    Understand your third eye seen all of that
    It aint where you from it's where you at
    Even the "Ghetto"

    No more props I want property in every Burrough
    Nobody's stoppin me because I'm thorough
    Rhymes I make give me real estate for me to own
    Where ever I bless a microphone
    Double O seven is back and relaxin
    On point and reactin and ready for action
    I'm so low key that you might not see me
    Incognito and takin it easy
    Quiet is kept on a hush hush
    In front of a crowd I get loud as a bum rush
    But calm keep a low pro and play the background
    Hoping the wack rappers put the mic back down
    So rip it break it in half go ahead and slam it
    Cause when it's time to build I'm a mechanic
    I'm bondin and mendin attachin and blendin
    So many solos there is no ending
    People in my neighborhood they know I'm good
    From London to Hollywood where ever I stood
    Footprints remain on stage ever since
    Sidewalks and streets I leave fossils and dents
    When I had sex I left my name on necks
    My Trademark was left throughout the projects
    I used to get rich when I played c-lo
    When I rolled 4,5,6 they go we know
    So I collect my cash then slide
    I got my back my gun's on my side
    It shouldn't have to be like that
    I guess it aint where you from it's where you at
    Even the "Ghetto"
