Contradiction, my prediction is that
It is really important where I take my naps? (No!)
Or who I sleep with?
People with a real mind will peep this out (Yo)
Then there goes ur clout
Another fool don't know what she talkin' 'bout
Like the woman who tried 2 approach and attempt 2 roast (What?)
And even boast (Ladies and gentlemen)
About how she knew me when (What'd she say?)
Damn! Here we go again
U never went 2 school as far as I know
And now U're tryin' 2 say that U're writin' a bio (Ladies and gentlemen)
(Oops!) About me?
Girl, I hate 2 say this (So nigga, please!)
I go places that U never go
Ask what I'm kickin' (yo), I'm kickin' the flow

Rock 2 the F.L.O.W. (Wait a minute)
(Minneapolis...) (They don't speak español)
Just like U're supposed 2 do
(Minneapolis...) (They don't speak español)
Rock 2 the F.L.O.W. (Wait a minute)
(Don't kill me please)
No no, I ain't... go'n kill U, man (Just like U're supposed 2 do)
Tony, shoot that piece of shit (They don't speak español)
(Stray teenagers at large)

Just give me the beat and somethin' 2 flow on and b4 long
I'll have 'em bobbin' their jugheads 2 this funky song
Yeah, I watch the people scatter 2 the dance floor
Slammin' and shakin' their booties, screamin' "Yo T, gimme more!"
So more is what I give 'em
NPG's rockin' the track, yo, tell me how we're livin' (Livin' large T)
Yeah, hah, U damn right, that's how I b (I see)
Gotta keep it that way so that 5-0 can't find me
And I'm sneakin' up the back of a pack of rats
They thought I was asleep, I'm sayin' it ain't all that (Naw)
Yeah, not with a 9 fadin' my back, I don't hang with the hat pack (Bang)
Yo, I'm runnin' silent solo black
Sleek neat creepin' gang, people (Oh)
Rather put a damn fool 2 sleep who pulls a cheap 1 (Whatcha do?)
That's when I change my speed and flow on
Then I start slippin', skippin' and jumpin' around so much I say bring it on

Rock 2 the F.L.O.W. (Wait a minute)
(Minneapolis...) (They don't speak español)
Just like U're supposed 2 do
(Minneapolis...) (They don't speak español) (2 beat the English)
Rock 2 the F.L.O.W. (Wait a minute)
(Minneapolis...) (They don't speak español) (We go'n defeat U)
Just like U're supposed 2 do
Some people speak English and Spanish Tone (Speak English)
2 the bridge

(2 the bridge)
(2 the bridge)
But... but whatever 4? (2 beat the English)
(2 the bridge)
(Ladies and gentlemen)
(Ladies and gentlemen) Rock 2 the F.L.O.W.
(Ladies and gentlemen) Just like U're supposed 2 do
(Ladies and gentlemen) Rock 2 the F.L.O.W.
Just like U're supposed 2 do
Rock {repeat}
