Lyrics

(VERSE ONE)
A product of the late eighties
where fate made me,
I gained grace to put me on game where fate waits,
african patches unified the masses
pokadot wear and gumby slopes was the fat shit (remember that)

a boombox chillin on ya clavicle,
blastin music as you trot up the avenue,
way before hip hop portrayed an attitude,
Ice, glitz and bullshit I felt it was rather cool,
ll rocked the bells slick rick dropped the tales
before hip hop had lost appeal

shinehead dropped a joint with a rasta feel,
NWA explained why the cops were feared
and said fuck em the whole artform declared justice
cats put they fist high to display they bare knuckles
as a sign of pride a symbol we would ride or die
call this a tribute to those depriving times (HIp Hop)

(CHORUS)
I can't explain how much I owe to this game
(Hip Hop u the reason I write)
When times got rough and life got tough
(Hip Hop eased the struggle and strife)
When cats started shit and had me fiending to fight
(Hip hop came and showed me the light)
I can't explain how much I owe to this game
(Hip hop you the reason I write)

(VERSE TWO)
Its like the nineties was my favorite dog the game changed
but elevated its craftmanship using the same slang
ready to die hit illmatic was classic
hits came dime a dozen skills mattered and thats it,
Wu dropped plus a rude dude by the name of Tupac, just to name a few hot spittas
slaying mo niggas than cop triggas
the game went from playful cats to mob figgas,
concious to nonsense spittin nice to ice talk
no wonder I fiend to get this mic device sparked
I gotta inspire myself this artform crying for help
drowning in desire for wealth the art suffers
the tempo designed by smart fuckers
cash versus heart surpass the sharp embark justice back to the essence wordplay accurate message passionate effort used to produce immaculate records

(CHORUS)
I can't explain how much I owe to this game
(Hip Hop u the reason I write)
When times got rough and life got tough
(Hip Hop eased the struggle and strife)
When cats started shit and had me fiending to fight
(Hip hop came and showed me the light)
I can't explain how much I owe to this game
(Hip hop you the reason I write)

*BRIDGE*
(Hip Hop chant 16 bars)

(CHORUS)
I can't explain how much I owe to this game
(Hip Hop u the reason I write)
When times got rough and life got tough
(Hip Hop eased the struggle and strife)
When cats started shit and had me fiending to fight
(Hip hop came and showed me the light)
I can't explain how much I owe to this game
(Hip hop you the reason I write)
