My name is M.C. Shan, my destiny is the stars Being driven around in the freshest cars All his beats and my rhymes are chill Now I'm back once again ready to get ill The beat's not fake, the rhyme's hardcore My name is M.C. Shan and I'm down by law There's been this rumor going around About low life crab saying I ain't down But all MC's will feel my wrath The system is my power the mic is my staff I have the power of command, the power of lust At the battles all papers read All across the country I know I'm hated Not only by crews I've devastated Don't ask how I know, I just can tell By the tone of your voice as you wish me well Filled with so much envy that your face turns green Cause my name rings bells on the hip-hop scene So pull out a bottle let the champagne pour Fly rhymes so that makes me down by law Creeping across the nation like a midnight storm Always rock a jam every time I perform Records I make are not distorted Made in New York and not imported Have never been known to make an error Crews see me coming, their heart full of terror Dip out the back when I step on the scene Watch the back door, you'll see what I mean I love to rock a party every time I can My DJ is Marley Marl and I'm M.C. Shan We make the freshest jams that you've ever heard Marl, ain't we down? (Word!) Now that we've come to the very end His beats my rhymes are a perfect blend We are the ones all others admire To be like us is their desire Never get angry always stay calm Yet do as much damage as a nuclear bomb Do or say anything we may We destroy all objects in our way As expensive as diamonds, as precious as pearls Rap so strong, take all y'all girls Make cold cash money, make much much more My name is M.C. Shan and I'm down by law!
