    You Can't Stop Me Now

    Digi Snacks
    2008

    RZA
    Inspectah Deck

    RZA


    [Intro]

    Round up, round up, round up, round up
    Round up, round up, round up, round up...

    [Chorus]

    No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
    No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now

    (RZA)

    The greatest B-Boy of all time, started from small crimes
    While others had big tops I was slingin' small dimes
    Tryin' to make the come up, the blow used to numb up
    A few G's a week, my clique used to sum up
    Till my brother got locked up, my girl got knocked up
    My closest homeys each, got popped up and shot up
    And cops flood the block, no way to eat
    So I dropped a half a G on a rented SP
    1200 Sampler, and a Yamaha Four-Track
    The bass from the lab used to blow the fuckin' door back
    While Ghost was doin' stick-ups, tryin' to make a vic' up
    Waitin' outside for the Brinks truck to pick up
    Nothing would work, so we're back to choppin' nicks up
    Givin' grown ass women two vials for a dick suck
    When I was stressed I would head to the rest
    Then the pads on the SP-12 got pressed
    Makin' beats for the streets, so the family could eat
    In '93, Wu-Tang Clan dropped their first LP
    We went platinum, *whoopish*, yeah we flatten 'em
    Pockets got fat and um, went and got Cap and 'em
    Staten's on the map and um, Brooklyn Zu is bombin' 'em
    All around the world, Killa Beez start swarmin' 'em
    You can't stop us, you can't block us
    Rock us or mock us, knock us or top us
    Better sit back and watch us...

    [Chorus]

    (Inspectah Deck)

    Can't stop me man...
    No matter how hard, you better go hard
    So hard, if you gonna try and stop me now
    I be ruckus to rhythm like the blocks be wild
    Bad enough I got the cops tryin' to lock me down
    Can't nobody break my stride or shake my pride
    Without a homicide, case and trial
    It's a long time comin', long nines bustin'
    Cradle to the grave I be on my grind hustlin'
    Sometimes when I think about it, have my mind buggin'
    The shit that I been through, things that I've seen
    The chicks that I ran through, places I've been
    I'm a victim of the very song I sing
    That's how it is in the heart of it, most want no part of it
    Some will soothe the pain through booze and narcotics
    I'ma hold my head, stay true to where my heart is
    Either you pay with your life, or you pay dues and homage

    [Chorus x2]

    Impeccable production.
    Comme les anges à l'œil fauve
    Je reviendrai dans ton alcôve
    Et vers toi glisserai sans bruit
    Comme les ombres de la nuit.

    LOVE this joint. think its highly underrated, but its a 4/5 to me b/c i only score the greatest songs of all-time a 5/5. this isnt one of 'em.

    i love the tracks (from any MC) that speaks on actually being an MC, becoming an MC, or the evolution of an MC.

    also, i dont think you can compare the rza, doom, & nas versions of this b/c they're different.

    Well duh they're obviously different, doesn't mean you can't compare - and man DOOM and Fantastik's chemistry is fucking crazy and the beat just rocks a lot harder. RZA's just aint as good, I'd rather listen to DOOM's.
