LYRICS: Bring The Heat Back

Bring Back The Heat

I Bring The Heat, i Bring The Heat Back,
No need to look forward, if u still moving back x4

The time has come to distinguish fans from critiques,
wannabes and pure addicts,
posers and microphone handlers,
consumers and abused users,
the intellects and those trying to connect,
the movement supporters and those stuck at the moment,
those who emcee to spark dead cells,
and those who emcee just to sell,
a thin line bordered by a bombastic gap,
welcome to the sounds of backpackin rap,
the pure essence, not just words,
but poetic sentence, the reason rewind buttons were invented,
check the vocab of this local vocal,
within the system like Ghost In The Shell,
the one u love to hate,
since 98, spittin future wisdom u couldn't relate
so i had to bring the heat back,
show u how hiphop is hiphop,
not something u cud pick the mic,
switch ur name and just start to rap

I create beats that bangs,
if u head noddin, peep'in the lyrics,
i can put away the mic and stop lettin my head hang,
stop dancing for a moment and let ur head think,
the music's been the same for the past 10 years,
same voices same faces, same music just different covers,
still sellin thousands of tapes, dumb luck,
or they've got 4 leaf clovers,
but thats it, its stagnant no movement, thats why we are where we still are,
and not crossing oceans,
its called playing it safe, why u wanna change if the people is still buying,
people are still buying coz they gave up on change,
only a handfull believe in moving forward,
the rest are stuck in time,
since they came out in the 80's, their fans are still making babies,
stuck with the same melody, same progression and same production
thinks i'm stating the obvious and killing a nation?
when was the last time u saw a Sabahan's video clip on TV stations

yeah i bounce it back to the days,
when mc's spit for reason,
now its just spittin for vengeance and spitting for venom,
but that be a different topic for a different day,
back to the present,
what u hear in your ear ain't logical mind play,
i look far forward, sonic soundscapes,
that explains your minds flat escapades,
Digital Licks mutha*,
Pioneers of the new age,
Loosen up ur ear drums, let ur mind out of its cage,
1-3-5 mentality ain't good enuff for musical dexterity,
i say it sincerely, the music is good, its just done poorly,
how we supposed to move ahead, if u ain't wakin up early,
they say talk is cheap, but lets face it,
you ain't running since talking means that u ain't spending,
u wanna say i'm fuckin up the culture,
i say i represent the culture since no ones seem to have seen the culture.
