The only way to keep hip hop true
Is by keeping it real every single time
It doesn’t matter how the beat goes
‘Cause the lyrics are clean like a cup that came out of the dishwasher
The only way to keep hip hop true is by keeping it real every single time
Every single time.

How do you like me now?

Nobody got to get that extra rinse
‘Cause the beep is neither here nor there

No reason to take a cues
From those who cling to the static from being all gangster
If I had wanted that, why Ice T would be giving me clues
On when to say “boom blaw sucker”

As an MC I never came from the hood
The only thing that got shot was a toy cap gun
It never put no bullet into anyone --

Just Ask Johnny

Nah I don't see a reason to talk about all the homies down on the block
That would only be cool if the gang was jumping some fool
Then you might hear somebody say that guy got served up like cream puff
Just ask Johnny about that
Just ask Johnny about that

How do you like me now - Just Ask Johnny

But everyone knows the season is only for the outsiders
The real tough guys
They always beat the rich kids.
