about

The Fab Five of Michigan were the talk of college basketball. It was the first time swagger met the court in such a bombastic way. Here's our dedication to the boys.

lyrics

I shall, proceed and continue to rock the mic
I shall, proceed and continue to rock the mic
I shall, proceed and continue to rock the mic
I shall, proceed and continue to rock the mic
Fab 5 mad live blow up the spot
Get the paper take the shot
But we still get the props


(Mickey Factz)
Guess who it is, none other than mickey from the bronx
Who steady put it down in this pretty renaissance
I been jiggy from the start, like select screens, mc’s
Know the pen bleeds on the paper when i just breathe
Pet peeve is haters who wanna test these
So they act nuts like testes, im wesley
Snipe competition while sprinting on top of 10 speeds
That's excitebike for you fresh dweebs, i been leagues
Ahead of the talent, you fine wine im pepsi
Mixed with jack minus the dempsey, i kept these
Lyrics on display for the next G’s, impress me
Until then catch me on jet skis
It’s Mickey, Factz

(Alfred Banks)
Aye yo Ran
I cut to the chase and that made em all ran
Ironically I’m headed to the bank when I land
Out in Phoenix I got booked at
Shine like a sun so They had to Devin book that
Never ever look back First round pick
Made it to Zion riding on a pelican
That feeling is setting in I’m about to get it in
Cuz I gotta represent so you know I’ll never sit
Ima stand up guy like I’m going for the block
Then rock the fastbreak no candy when I jot
And I’m from a great city And they not
NO, LA, Alfred Banks all day
What’s up

I shall, proceed and continue to rock the mic
I shall, proceed and continue to rock the mic
I shall, proceed and continue to rock the mic
I shall, proceed and continue to rock the mic
Fab 5 mad live blow up the spot
Get the paper take the shot
But we still get the props

(MedafORACLE)
Son’s tearin all the mics up
So peep the book of rhymes like Devin in a cypher
They comparing us to Right Stuff
I simply laugh and flip the script like
IG telling you to swipe up
Aight listen, they ask who’s the best
I stare in the mirror and
Point forward like Pippen
(what?)
That’s why nobody’s running fades
Like a barber who claims he left his Clippers like Griffin
I’m quite gifted, I’m type different on tight writtens
I like spittin’ flows, untouchable like white privilege
Listen… y’all better stop, I’m nice
Jordan hooked on crack, I simply rock the mic

(Esoteric)
lines 95 Live and Eso never switch
shooting like Drazen Petrovic with the extra clips listen
Your legacy is very brittle, like the knees on Kerry Kittles
What you're doing that amounts to very little
Rappers read every tweet but can't read the room
Lest we assume they outta pocket about to meet their doom
like FF #5 or Latverian tour guides
or the Gas Face feature straight ether how I trash they're speakers
(tell 'em) shit is real while you fake or fictional like Vincent Vega
yes it's in my nature to blaze mics like Craig Sager in a blazer
not a Drexler one (no)
symbiotic how we rock it, weapon is a tongue

I shall, proceed and continue to rock the mic
I shall, proceed and continue to rock the mic
I shall, proceed and continue to rock the mic
I shall, proceed and continue to rock the mic
Fab 5 mad live blow up the spot
Get the paper take the shot
But we still get the props


(Mega Ran)
I ain’t never selling my soul for airtime
So I keep it sharp, like Jalen Rose hairline
My style is, unpredictability personified
when they said it couldn’t be done, I said imma try
I was plotting on Pixels and polygons
Way before the first time i stepped into a comic con,
When it’s my time to rhyme I morph to Mega Oppenheim,
turning stages in mushroom clouds like Atomic bombs
I spent 30 years tryna blend in
Always been chubby so I never had thin skin,
Philly cats been the hardest things since Ben Grimm
I picked up a comic and knew that I was different since then
Now we step over like Iverson did Ty Lue
Running thru your city like a Kaiju
My crew
Itchin to set it, opposition getting instantly shredded,
Back in the game it’s like ya boy got infinite credits
what
