r a the rugged man – lessons lyrics

“r-a what’s the lesson for today rugged man” – sadat x
“i am the legendary.r-a” – sadat x

[verse 1]
yo aiiyo people wonderin’ where the f-ck i been
at the vip section they ain’t lettin’ me in
they say; maybe if you had dr. dre or timbaland
they say; a white boy need a black boy to win
uhh bubba sparxx did it and so did slim
just blaze is hot now why don’t you get with him
i watch mad rappers bite my sh-t and blow up
and make millions of what i created, that’s tough luck
i first started gettin’ coverage around the same time
steve stout used to carry kid and placed luggage
i seen rappers turned from s-x symbols in hard throbs
to bein forgotten now they out lookin’ for jobs
i seen epmd break up
i seen my little brother max fall asleep and he ain’t never wake up
so when i rhyme listen, seriously
when i spit i’m givin’ you the truth clearly who i really be
it’s an audio version of reality tv
i had deals from russell simmonds to master p
even five year old white girls be rappin’ today
on the playground like ‘go shorty it’s ya birthday’ (go, go, go.)

“here’s a little story i got ta tell”
“i am the legendary”
“r-a” “rugged man”

[verse 2]
yo yo yo i seen good days sun rays church sundays
made love made war been rich been poor
lost friends lost hoods lost my dough
seen beef between bad boy and death row
i seen deceased take the life for my sisters kid
six months on the earth is what he had to live
i seen biggie big l big pun p-ss away
buffy from the fat boys, jam master jay
i mumple ‘fore they blew up with mystikal and jay-z
the neptunes came to see me at d & d
i knew this chick named norah a lounge singer
a year later she a six grammy award winner
i seen flatliners i seen cannabisses
i seen lil zane see i seen mad misses
you ran through that ten percent disses
i seen a & r’s get fired for takin’ p-sses
stop whinin’ and b-tchin’ n-body listens
who else riskin’ they career they stick to be indifferent
switchin’ the tradition stickin’ to this sh-t they really livin’
i don’t care what’s h-ttin
listen this is my f-ckin’ life that i’m spittin’

“here’s a little story i got ta tell”
“i am the legendary”
“r-a” “rugged man”

[verse 3]
i made peace with myself now how bout that
i hated life i wanted to die a few years back
i was mentally ill it’s hard to come back from that
but i got through it now i got my sanity back
y’all are like h-b-o fighters get the money and fame
get beat up like klitschko and sugar shane
or get beat like vernon forrest or prince naseem
and you all turn p-ssy when you get that green
i got love for havoc from mobb deep
when i was broke sleepin’ in the street
he hooked me up with a free beat
alchemist you still my little buddy
althought you stole that royce the 5″9 +the king+ beat from me
i ain’t down to sign autographs and shake ya hands
i don’t want trendy -ss followers as fans
i don’t wanna sell records, i don’t wanna be big
i don’t want mtv runnin’ up in my crib
i don’t wanna be light in the music biz
i don’t want fans that don’t know who g rap is

“here’s a little story i got ta tell”
“i am the legendary”
“r-a” “rugged man”
“here’s a little story i got ta tell”
“i am the legendary”
“r-a” “rugged man”
“what’s the lesson for today rugged man”
