Don't Forget The Bass

lyrics

Mini Skit

I'm ready for action, packing provisions of visions / Verbally, every word will be enhanced / With the bass that'll put you in a trance / Some dance, come take a chance / Del won't do you wrong / I've been in the rap game too long to falter / I rock like Gibraltar / Make you kneel to the butt like an altar / We move to prove that this is improved, when you're at-water / Caught’em with vibration that soothes your back like massages / Before you can park your car in garages / It'll be just for riders, listening to 'Rock The Bells' / You can barely hear the vocals / Mixing is important, getting the public into chokeholds / Hip hop hopefuls will do well to know this / It ain't about who's the dopest / It's who gets the fan's focus upon you / when they feel what the song do / I think I'm onto something, when I got my shit pumping / I remember, when they were satisfied with just lyrics / now, if the music 's flat / I can barely stand to hear it and my rhymes are impeccable and you can't dissect my flow / With music sounding like it's out of tin cans / Just wreck the whole vibe and stride for perfection / Why you think they call this a profession? Hey

Chorus (Repeat 2x)

Can't forget the bass, the bottom got em crawling to the wall man
We got cassettes, CD's and LP's
DJ's for days, whatever you do
Give it your all, cause that's what pays

I just love when I can hear the bump bleeding to the walls / In the halls, coming from the record stores in the malls / A beat with balls I like that / it bites back and strikes back / At niggas who are wack, cuz / Back in the day when hip hop was just developing / It was back in the day / we should be relishing in experience / All you newcomers better be leery cause / Hieroglyphics got the bump / And it ain't mysterious

Chorus (Repeat 2x)

Can't forget the bass, the bottom got em crawling to the wall man
We got cassettes, CD's and LP's
DJ's for days, whatever you do
Give it your all, cause that's what pays

This don't apply to the niggas who sell out / And fell out of their fan base / Trying to chase the big bucks / It sucks, I know, when your heroes wanna appear to hoes supermacho / And watch the whole role and image of a mic champion / To the fam base it simply can't be done / Cuz they're your folks when you don't get the prop shit / They know you got the top shit and in it only for profit / But since we on the topic, let me drop it / We need to stop this segregation of hip hop / Talking 'bout fuck the east coast, and fuck the west coast / He's sold out, cause someone either sings a note in the chorus / What is real hip hop then? Only the shit you listen to / Everything else pretending, I'm sending a message to my fan base / Fuck this is hip hop and this is rap, it came from the same place / and there's a place for everything including hieroglyphics / And we gonna come with it, as long as y'all with it / cause the fan base is like a legion / For one cause, we want the dope shit cause / the other got flaws / Now, I'm a fan who likes a lot of different things / I differentiate with music just to spread my wings / I always do my best, that's why the fans love me / Not some contrived shit, so I can be bubbly / We all got some preferences, that's just how it goes / But when you see there's an effort being made, don't turn up your nose / Turn up the bass, race to go and buy it / And don’t dub it, some of ya’ll do, don't deny it

Mini Skit
