Crazy Verse: GZA – On The Eve of War

The Genius. Starts at 1:33.


Imagine a rhyme in it’s prime, from off the baselines
Skyscraper verticals, support the hang time
Evidence that was left at the scene of the crime
Trace back to a few, from out a group of nine
Who performed well, regardless to the price of the tickets
Off or onstage, whatever, still kick it
With the footwork, of Freddie Adu, it’s all new
Now the rap commissioners, they wanna clone my shoe
But the road’s narrow, and it’s difficult to climb
With the heat, the wind and the fallen rocks combined
It’s hard to stay in line, the course is an obstacle
Within each chamber, the force is unstoppable
Lyrical swordsman, blades sharp, I cut out your heart
M.C.’s want no part, in any type of conflict
Because then I respond quick, it gets thick
The problem goes beyond sick
