Nag Champa by Common

[Verse 1: Common]

Excite-ting enlight-ning invite-ing

I'm writing shit that I feel

Raps are black steel in the hour of commotion the motion of Com

Is like that of a ocean devotion cause I'm

The earth wind and fire

Of hip hop by Rakim and Short I been inspired

My shit knocks environ---ments

Of cats with seventeen's tint time is money

The mind is funny how it's spent on getting it

It's sitting with descendants of Abraham

Who say the jam is "money cash hoes"

I went from bashful to asshole to international lover-self

Word to the mother on my last record cover it's felt

Now deal with it


[Hook: J Dilla]

I wanna get into it

Lets do this

I wanna see you move it

So move it

So lets just get into it

Lets do this

Can you feel the music?

The music oh ah can you feel the music the music

[Verse 2: Common]

In this never-ending battle to please

Niggas magazine writers emcees

Who request hot shit I freeze

And tell them where I was rose we always said cold

Hold your horses and your carriages

This never-went-gold nigga rocks shows care-less

You not gon' respect self at least respect the heritage

Affecting lives is where the wealth and the merit is

I realize what I portray day to day I gotta carry this

And beats rhymes and life is where the marriage is

Had dreams of fucking R&B broads it came true

Journalist I wreck shared the same view

Picked up a fallen angel on the path that I emcee

Familiar voice come to find out the angel was me

Some say "You changing Rashid"

Times are we still close

I rhyme far away away away

From what you accustomed to hearing everyday uh-ah

You know the dope-choppin gun-poppin homies dying

I'm amongst it save the war stories for Private Ryan INI




[Verse 3: Common]

Women cry children laugh men dance

I refuse to lose self and try to win fans

Over weight on my shoulder fluctuates like Oprah's

My refrigerator poetry's magnetic like ultra

You couldn't hang if you was a poster

Posing like a bitch for exposure

It's rumors of gay emcees just don't come around me with it

You still rockin hickies don't let me find out he did it

Got my eyes on the tiger eyes on the prize

Eyes on the thighs of Mary J. Blige

Imagine on how good the cat must be

Stop eatin meat lost weight but I still rap husky

My verse depth is that of a baby's first step

Or the old lady who died and the nurse wept

I flow like cursive writing inviting you and yours to my openess

Shows allow me to cop range like a vocalist

But man does not live on bread alone

What good is a range when it's time to head home?


[Hook x2]


[Outro x6]

We be that we be that

Afrodisiac 'disiac
