BELIEVERS OF THE TRUE SCHOOL
from the BSM all vinyl MixedTape Vol.1
by L. Scatter

True school renaissance spirit of old haunts
like L.Q. Bronx River and Radiotron
from Uncle Jam’s Army to Unity and the sponsor-
ship shouldn’t commercialize ‘cuz corporations will want
to milk it like they built it, but we know that the Bronx
is the birthplace of this culture in it’s previous forms
and it’s present and it’s future is dependent on con-
temporaries though we vary in the eeriest norms
but Hip Hop has no end to put a period on
just a run on sentence that we hear in a song and
if we leave it to viacom they’ll be steering us wrong
unless we detonate suddenly like mysterious bombs
check it, the mirror your on makes you tear in the pond
so when it’s clear and it’s warm, you’re still fearing the storm
‘cause there are four elements to gain experience on
True School B-Boy, I’m right here and it’s on
We’re the Believers of the True School (Real Hip Hop)
whether scratchin’ or breakin’ or bombin’ or rockin’ the spot
it’s the essence of hearin the beat knock on your block
We’re the Believers of the True School (Real Hip Hop)
whether scratchin’ or breakin’ or bombin’ or rockin’ the spot
it’s the essence of hearin the beat knock on your block

For the respect I get raw on a checkerboard floor
just an extention of skills, catch wreck and you all saw
‘rocks is on top, knee-drop to all fall
in the rhythm ‘cuz I’m givin’ my all so (Yes Y’all)
to the beat y’all, and it don’t stop ‘cuz the beat calls
the call of the styles appalling you while the feet fall
on linoleum, hardwood or concrete y’all
the same intensity as when I speak on the beats or
poking drum pads on my MPC pause
spin back to a backspin to a freeze or
flip up off the floor like a greaseball
sweatin beads more like buckshots spraying enemies more
I’m a see-saw quick to read y’all with the balance to defeat more
competitors like predators of retards
dual attack like you read cards,
breakin and rhymin the timings not too hard to keep on
six step to 2000 CC’s like 2 liter heaters
windmills in your face in space of millimeters
hard to sleep on, I got the Mic or the floor in my palm
word is bond flip the beat on that old
Believers of the True School (Real Hip Hop)
whether scratchin’ or breakin’ or bombin’ or rockin’ the spot
it’s the essence of hearin the beat knock on your block
We’re the Believers of the True School (Real Hip Hop)
whether scratchin’ or breakin’ or bombin’ or rockin’ the spot
it’s the essence of hearin the beat knock on your block
