The Rapper’s Almanac

Welcome to the rapper’s almanac
Guaranteed what you see be all of that
Made to last long time like an artifact
I put my heart in that, ‘til it’s all a wrap
You need to get your ears checked
if you call it wack
I do this 24/7 this is not an act
No need to be aggressive always on attack
But if you put me in a corner you’ll be on your back, Wherever I’m at I put on the map
Keep the microbrew maxing out on the tap
Tell the engineer better arm the track
Because I stay in the pocket like a quarterback
Untouchable, you’ll never see my armor crack
You ain’t baiting me
to messing up my karma, jack
Call my agent, I’m not going to call you back
Cuz I’m busy working on the rapper’s almanac

It was this date in 1977
that the brother in question
Took his first breath in
realized that his mind was a weapon
But an even better tool
when the school would let him
Run wild with his own imagination
And find freedom where others found stagnation
Bound for greatness, he’d always claim
But when the awards were announced
no one called his name
Never one to dismay, he persevered
Put in years from when he first appeared
Released his first collection of raps in 2000
And it was quite apparent that he knew how then
Though it’d take some time
to find commercial success
It was a sweet victory that reversed all the stress
It hurts all the less to drop verses so fresh
It became canonized and heard after death
