    Artist: Mr. Lif
    Album: Coast II Coast Compilation
    Title: They Made It That Way

    It started with two turn tables and a mic
    Lightning strike, electricity
    MC rip rhymes DJ cut the wax viciously
    The combo, maliciously brought, ingenious and precise
    Mad nice, soon to be subject to mad heists
    Niggas talkin bout they bought mad ice, livin the mad sheist
    In the battle of art versus trends
    Poetry ends when money contends the recipe blends and becomes diluted
    Polluted in fact, but check whos been recruited
    Intact with rhymes for your mind
    Everydays a struggle 'cause society frames you
    But raise your head and walk with pride because i came to...

    "Make It Better" -> [KRS-One sample] (2x)

    The only place I can find justice is deep inside of these lines
    That i designed to explain situations of the times
    People in general are targets of big money markets
    And are all disposable unless you come ready to work
    Fully posable with suit and tie
    Ready to buy into the bullshit images
    Of people claiming that money is what there religion is
    Filthy females that are visionless
    And foes that are precisionless
    Let me be your mind's eye and vision this
    Rise above, your power is limitless
    The ghetto's designed to leave you spiritless
    Living from day to day dodging AK spray
    Niggas doing anything for pay
    In streets that spite the light of day
    The fallen gods been led astray
    I must retaliate
    "Why?"
    Because they made it that way
    "Word"
    Fully educated rhyme spray
    My way is to give you something to cling to
    So you can survive dillemas that you live through
    Then exist through your light

    And focus on being in search of what's real
    Instead of just relying on the steel.

    "Make It Better"
    "Remember?"
    "Make It Better"

    Check it,
    This is the new lyrical selection
    Red, black, and green protection
    Motivation and pride connection
    Moving the focus of your perception away from nice cars with fuel injection
    The lesson is often taught, but never heard
    Leaving your vision forever blurred
    Killing for wealth in a world thats absurd, with hate in killing the fate
    Delivered by your villian(?)
    Fucked up from skunk and malt liquor and now he's illin'
    'cause he hasn't had a meal in three days
    Chop your neck in three ways, common occurences these days
    Soon to be locked in a cell for raising hell
    Looking back upon his life wondering where he fell
    But martyrs tell of many uncivil nights
    While battleing for civil rights
    Niggas die 'cause ignorance plights
    And ignorance fights progress
    In all shapes and types
    By blocking the lights of success from niggas sights
    So one nigga snipes his brotha who he claimed he never likes
    And snatches his adiddas and nikes
    So I drop knowledge on mics until apocalypse strikes
    Atomic blast blowing niggas off dirtbikes
    I mold the soil into dirt spikes
    And jump straight from the top of the chart
    And drive 'em through the devil's heart
    Its time to revolt and restart
    And live our lives from the heart
    And bring this music back to the art, rip it apart.

    "Remember?" & "Make It Better" (scratched) 3x

    (scratches and fades)

    It's coming along, but unfortuantly I got the addiction to the twelve oz. At this point, my free time is spent at local bars and these damn forums.


    I guess it may lead to being a 60 year old cracked out twelve ounce prophet fan.

    through hearing mr. lif, i got one of my first tastes of that newfangled "underground" that doesn't make sense. I'm talking about insight. that "Universal" song by Lif and Insight is alright, but I don't quite get insight's lyrics.
