The circle draws heat

By L. Scatterbrain and Malc Overflow

(M) It’s the cipher, no hesitation turn rotation
Rhyme revistation, fresh the destination
Vibin’ off the last individual flippin’ it free no residual payment
Disrespect gets you slayed quick
Your stamina won’t last
Take your 16 bars and then pass
Don’t merge with my turn, and when you gonna learn?
You step and get burned…(With no concern as we turn like)

Spokes in a hub with a spinning wheel feel
Spoken in turn while spittin’ the real steel
Smoke from the burning herbs while my words spill
This ain’t a motion picture with an urbanized feel
It’s a ritual of getting all the energy out
It’s habitual to me so you ain’t turnin’ me out
Even in transit you can’t spit so can it
Your brain needs to transmit sometin’ better to the letter

‘Cause the circle draws heat
And competitors with a need to compete
It’s combat on concrete
You could either stand your ground or stomp feet (X2)

No reversal of fortune, I torture you orphans
Overdosed and overendorphined I’m morphin’
Heads into distortion for static it’s automatic, and all too often,
I stepchild the buckwild with a freestyle
I leave them hangin’ in the meanwhile
I mean while I’m rappin’ they be senile
I see Nile and Amazonian riverflows
I leave UPS’d when I deliver those

(M) In the spot with old skate shoes
Already respect is at a minimal (dork)
But I be flippin’ it like a faded criminal (damn)
You think ‘cause I look nerdy that you could serve me?
You better think again like part 2
‘cause I be comin’ at this mic like a harpoon
wack is the target and I got a dart for them
Representin’ fresh in this verbal artform
Keep the cipher in rotation, no hesitation…

‘Cause the circle draws heat
And competitors with a need to compete
Combat on concrete
You could either stand your ground or stomp feet (X2)

Unmitigated mayhem, the main man, I’ll maim them
In a mainland melee when
the Islander’s wildin’ you’re advised to play them
Back walls ‘cause I crack y’all with a caveman
Cantankerousness
My word is an equivalent to shank in your chest just
save your bravado for Johnny Bravo
You’re green with envy but get diced like an avocado thinkin’ you got flows

(M) Fresh in the definition when I be rippin’ it tight
Intensely bringin’ the heat we grippin’ the mic
Bringing them to their feet at the end of the night
Peep the verbal debate but rock a show date
‘til they say it’s too late, I’m never quittin’
Just freestyle rhyme spittin’, wackness is forbidden
At home leave your written, prepare for the collision
In the cipher, ‘cause I’m a lifer…

‘Cause the circle draws heat
And competitors with a need to compete
Combat on concrete
You could either stand your ground or stomp feet (X2)
