Let me show you how a real ___ do it / how I roll a road block roll right through it / In effect like '88 with fake Polo / the great state of Cali band we roll solo / numero uno / dos tres the Don Dada / got the club followin' Pigeon John's persona / there's none hotta' / not even old man in a sauna / not even a club in the 80's bumpin' Banana Rama / Six Tray'? No! / got a Civic with four doors / not even mine, my girls so I gotta dip low / West Coast/ comin' down like the Holy Ghost / I set trends they bite them and I don't boast / no I really do / can't lie I think I'm so fly / man without a crew Pigeon John he don't know what to do / guess I'll just rap/ to all the sad souls in the back / and hope that they get the hope that I wrote / kickin' it in Barnes -n- Nobles / reading magazines and drinkin' homemade cocoa / checkin' out the scene and you know I'm a local / watching for the schemes and looking out for bozos / so I can bulldoze
I'm rockin' with the 4th / A.V.E.N.U.E / this is Pigeon John original Cali M.C. / rockin' for the nerds / I'm rockin' for the G's / hands up / plan is to only give you what you need / Rockin' with the 4th / J.O.N.E's / this is Pigeon John original Cali M.C. / I do it for the nerds / do it for the G's / hands up / plan is to only give you what you need
Tena Jones flowin' if you know me it's just Tena / from the south side part of Little Rock to pushin' BMer's / this critic said we copied obvious she'd never seen us / others said we'd never shine and now we headlining arenas / just rhymin' and climbin' makin' this music for your mind and / every deal that I'm signin' keep my momma in some diamonds / and I promised my little sister to push and excel / I'ma pay all of her tuition when she get into Yale / I got a fetish for lettuce me and my Avenue team / makin' so much money even when I'm bummy I'm clean / Mod you remember I was workin' up in GTE? / now everywhere we go we in the V.I.P. / didn't have no money then we use to rock it for free / now Puerto Rican fans pay to be aqui con mi / so I'll see you haters later laughin' at you cause' you comical / Phenomenal / What are we? / Phenomenal
You rockin' with the 4th / A.V.E.N.U.E / Avenue the crew it's Tena J. and M.O.D / Reppin' all the hoods over here and overseas / hands up/ plan is to only give you what you need/ You rockin' with the 4th / J.O.N.E's / Avenue the crew it's Tena J. and M.O.D / reppin' all the hoods over here and overseas / hands up/ plan is to only give you what you need
Los Angeles Unified Skill District / ghetto manuscripts, California lyricists / ready to flip and spit the live direct hits / ready for whatever holmes, don't even trip / yo I uplift and shift my gift / God blessed me with / all praises due to my Lord for my accomplishments / my testament I represent is evident / that I'm a full-blooded man check my fingerprints / I'm definitely, absolutely, positively, ain't a chicken like George / but know my Roots like I was Kizzie / the Mandingo lingo live and die born single / make way for my arrival / make your spine tingle / ain't just to hear another verse thrust / head rush the Cold Crush / verbal nunchack's/ what/ feel my detector / missile launch ejector / North American government wrecker yo!
AHMAD JONES: They call me M-O-D. / ain't never sold a key / you just a microwave rapper / I'm a dope M.C. / don't say I'm hatin' cause you fakin' and we takin' it ''B'' / I'm O.G./ puttin' Cali on the M-A-P / Avenue teach clear as Evian / reach so we stay beyond / each crew get served like kishke or filet mignon / peace to D.J's and the streets that they play me on / crazy long lines/ out they seats like we Savion / y'all said I was a one hit wonder / world is a jungle fools wanna take me under / but I won't stop/ just rock/ like when a glock pops / hip hop was our culture long before it hit the pop charts / so you cannot box me in / locked is what I got blocks / I do this like Pac and Big Poppa fo' they got shot / fake and you hate but I'ma make you give me my props / and blow up so big you'll be mistaking us for sasquatch
