lyrics

5 years ago some friends of mine
got together and we put mega man to rhymes
had the rap world stuck like a pantomime
Capcom hit me up, told me they were fans of mine
next thing you know im givin daps to
the cats who, made the games I played daily
insane to brain to think that they really
contained my claim to fame its plain silly
30 year old rap dudes with tattoos
shedding they backpack roots to clap tools
claiming they rap that truth and thats cool
paid all my rap dues, yet i attract fools
who ass-ume Random's dead
apparently you werent hearing what Random said
All i did was pay attention to the fans instead
of being scared of what was inside of Random's head
and all of us who make art, wanna stand apart
and see success while staying true to your heart
can't get set or go till you get on your mark
some times to go forward ya gotta restart
sat on the stoop with a couple of bros
used to beg the homies to come to the shows
had to make a change--and it wasnt my flows
but the secret to success was right under my nose

CHORUS
been around the world and one thing i learned
if ya gonna do it, do it on your terms
you live you learn, take your turn
who coulda believed it


i bomb atomically, gotta be a prophecy
that i could be making a career as a hot MC
probably, critics try knocking me
possibly, one day i'll see a line way around the block for me
cats who dont rock wit me, say i made a mockery
and i should be on the sidelines like kevin loughery
cops dream of lockin me but im as clean as i can be
i was in the drivers seat but still aint have the drive in me
i would be, working 9-5 for the family
doing what i loved on the side to keep my sanity
most cats are cool but a few not friendly
make me wanna bomb first like 2pac's in me
but i chill and fall back like daylight savings
write some more raps hoping they might save me
till 5 years ago i got a strange idea
told DN3 he said "they might feel ya"
its megamans 2oth anniversary
what would fit perfectly? a beat and a verse from me
Hit atomic fire and i got to shopping
then fired up Reason and i got to choppin
made a couple records that paved the way
still perform those joints on stage today
How mega ran was born, it isnt that clever
i like games and rhymes, i put em together, haha

been around the world and one thing i learned
if ya gonna do it, do it on your terms
you live you learn, take your turn
who coulda believed it
