"It's been a long time.."

".. Rakim the microphone soloist"



[Rakim]

Follow procedures the crowd couldn't wait to see this

Nobody been this long awaited since Jesus

Who wouldn't believe this I heard the word on the street is

I'm still one of the deepest on the mic since Adidas

They said I changed the times from the rhymes that I thought of

So I made some more to put the New World in Order

with Mathematics, put your status above the average

And help you rappers, make paragraphs with graphics

Cause new days is dawnin, new ways of peformin

Brainstormin, I write and watch the night turn to mornin

On and on and, I got the whole world respondin

Rock, I keep it hot and blow the spot without warnin

The Emperor, well known for, inventin a sentence

full of adventure, turnin up the temperature

Rush with adrenaline, how long has it been again

to be in the state of mind that Rakim is in?

[Rakim]

When I'm out proppin - either, hangin or shoppin

People see me stop and ask me when the album droppin

The wait is over, in-formation like a soldier

like I told ya, greater stronger, now that I'm older

I broke the, code of silence with overloads of talents

My only challenge, is not to explode in violence

I'm Asiatic, and blazin microphones a habit

At least once durin the course of a day, it's automatic

In ghetto apparel, mind of a Egyptian Pharoah

Far from shallow, thoughts travel like an arrow

Allah's monotony, so far they can't stop me

You know, Ra want property like Mumar Khadafi

More thoughts than Bibles, recital - taught disciples

A sawed off mic, so words scatter like a rifle

Thoughts that's trifle, I'm bustin these for you

Aiyyo, technical difficulties is through

When I float at night, I show em new heights, I go to write

They know I strike with new prototypes to blow the mic

Critics and biters, don't know where my source of light is

Still leave authors and writers with arthritis

Cursed kids like the Pyramids when they found the style

First to ever let a rhyme flow down the Nile

The rebirth of hip-hop'll be dropped now

cause the crowd didn't hear the original in a while

So be alarmed, what you bout to see is the bomb

Like, 3-D in 'Nam, vivid like CD-Rom

Info kept like "internet.com"

My note-book's my bond like the Holy Qu'ran

Since I came in the door, said it before

But no I ain't down with Eric B. no more

At night the open mic be invitin me to rhyme

So yo I'm online, it's been a long time
