    * train whistle *
    Yo right here, right here
    It's right through the fence, right through the fence
    Jump! * feet landing *
    Yeah.. right there, right there
    That's the 2's and the 5's
    * bag rustling *
    Joe gimme that, the fat, the fat cap, fat cap
    * train rolls in *
    Aight * shaking can up *
    Aight, let's do it now, let's do it now
    * spray paint *
    Yeah.. yeah..
    Nah gi-gimme the other cap, gimme the other one
    Yeah right there
    * more spray *
    Front .. Page .. Entertainment .. Group

    "I'm writin my name, in graffiti on the wall" (repeat 8X)
    * first time, minus "I'm" *
    Hah! Hahahaha
    All graffiti artists hold tight, hooo!
    All graffiti artists hold tight, word
    Check check check it out y'all
    Check check check check check it out y'all

    I got twenty-five cans in my knapsack, crossin out the wick-wack
    Puttin up my name with a fat cap
    Suckers that want to be in my face I just slap that
    Big respect to Artifacts, Fat Joey Crack and
    Mack and, Bio, and Brim come again
    with B.G. 183, recognize me
    with the mad colors, I'm a fiend for spraypaint
    Laugh if you wanna, I really care if you ain't
    cause you don't me see, and I don't know you
    But I do know Cope2, he be gettin walls too
    It's the underground community of what we call writers
    Worldwide burners, gettin hotter gettin brighter
    Whattup Nicer, whattup Razor, whattup Chino
    Masta Ase in the place, you know we know
    my man Rican, my man Zorro, taught me how to draw
    in the yards of the 5 train and the 4
    So when I'm on tour I represent the hardcore
    I'm taggin up your blackbook sure, I'm out for the fame

    "I'm writin my name, in graffiti on the wall" (repeat 4X)
    * first time, minus "I'm" *
    Yeah, check it out check it out check it out one time
    Hip-hop music in effect one time

    When I was growin up, I had no butcher baker candlestick maker
    I had rubbing alcohol and carbon paper
    Yeah, carbon paper and a blackboard eraser
    got me chased in the bus yards, with Rican and Nazer
    Historically speakin, cause people be dissin
    The first graffiti artists in the world were the Egyptians
    Writing on the walls, mixing characters with letters
    to tell the graphic story about their life, however
    today we do the same thing, with how we rap and draw
    We call it hardcore, they call it breakin the law
    There used to be a time when rap music was illegal
    The cops would come and break up every party when they see you
    But now the rap music's making money for the corporate
    It's acceptable to flaunt it, now everybody's on it
    Graffiti isn't corporate so it gets no respect
    Hasn't made a billion dollars for some corporation yet, so
    in the name of Phase2, Stay High, Pre-streets
    Grab your cans and hit the streets, I'm out for fame

    "I'm writin my name, in graffiti on the wall" (repeat 6X)
    Yeah, hip-hop culture in the house one time
    All graffiti artists in the house one time
    Biggin up the other side things here y'all
    The visual, not your video (check it out)

    I'm livin in the city, inner city not a farm
    Steady bombin til I get fatigue in my arm
    Watchin for the beast cause many artists they shot em
    And beat em in the yards, while doin a top to bottom
    So pass me a can, not of Old Gold
    but full blue, sky blue, watch me unfold
    with the cold burner, of names you mighta heard of
    like Fab 5 Freddy, Sam Sever
    Word to the wise, Futura 2000 recognize
    Nation of creation, G Man come alive
    Checkin out Revolt and Zephyr
    My man Easy, and Rembrandt, Mitch 77
    Oh no with the paint we can never dilly-dally
    Big up and respect to Con Art in Cali
    The Soul Artists, The Rebels, The Rascals, 3YB
    United Artists, TAT and Dondi
    Yes the other side of hip-hop is representin the visual
    Toys we be DISSIN you, I'm out for fame

    "I'm writin my name, in graffiti on the wall" (repeat 10X)
    Hip-hop in the house one time
    Video graf in the house one time
    All graffiti artists in the house dig the rhyme
    Put up your nine, put up your nine, yeah!
