roots – swept away lyrics


mc’s who slept for days, must be swept away (4x)

[malik b]
the rhythm just sways, and like a sorceress i slays
foes, and ri-vals, who wanna come
this way, they, better pay attention
or a penchant not to mention suspension
from the microphone, plus the tension
trey-eight oh’s will vacate those
if there’s drama with my henchmen
so lamp to my man mussolini
go get your whole staff, call the calf
cause half-and-half’s couldn’t cream me
the lyrics make your head knock
malik b and blackthought, the dreadlock
mannn, transss-gressin
you’ll catch lead i, crushin
poundin on the drums like king kong
we can ring your bellll, ding-dong!
i styles with my vocab-ulary
the roots the one to call your ultra adversary
now you’re all desert cause i’ma serv ya like a tray
to meet your doom malik’s the boom so you get swept away

mc’s who slept for days, must be swept away (4x)

yo, h-llo everybody do i need introduct’
i be the mic mercenary very un. clear
to your ear the exquisite pattern that you hear
it’s known to be black b-tta baby
crazy cardiac my attack on any fat rhythm
that i capture kid i sn-tch the mic from tykes
while i proceed. and continue. to tend to
business, cause this is, how i do
i’m insane, and go against the grain like freight
never on no n-gg- d-ck, cause i’m just too hip
plus i rest where n-gg-z pack and never act
other than ill, sh-t is real in phy-double
so if you want trouble let’s stomp

my mission is to flip on comp
you might aspire to be flyer than i, you must pay
your dues while i bruise n-gg-z new for the day
shall be swept away

mc’s who slept for days, must be swept away (3x)
mc’s who slept for days, must be… i’m on a mission

…: there’s somethin goin on:… (refrain repeats)
