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

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

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

Rock 2 the F-L-O-W
(Wait a minute) (Minneapolis) (They don't speak español) {repeat}
Just like U'r supposed 2 do (2 beat the English)
Rock 2 the F-L-O-W (We go'n defeat U)
Just like U'r supposed 2 do
Some people speak English & Spanish, Tone (Speak English)
2 the bridge {repeat}

But whatever 4? (2 beat the English)
(Ladies & gentlemen) {repeat}
Rock 2 the F-L-O-W
Just like U'r supposed 2 do
Rock 2 the F-L-O-W
Just like U'r supposed 2 do
Rock {repeat}
