INI (Rob-O, Ras G & Grap Luva) - Center Of Attention
« on: October 31, 2006, 01:17:42 PM »
The Best way to describe this Pete Rock-produced album to those who haven't heard it is by hookin' up 2 tracks from it

The first one is "Think Twice" featuring Pete Rock and if I recall correctly samples Special Ed

[Intro: Pete Rock](5x)
"Sucka MC's please think twice" -> Special Ed - Think About It

[Verse 1: Grap Luva]
Who'll be the sucka MC to get dismantled
I hope that you can handle your whipness or sees ya flippin gettin
Down with my lazy boy laidback style of speak
The funk makes you dance cheek to cheek
I be the black civilian who is bound to make a million
Or make enough loot so I can buy my own provillian
Throw a fat party and invite everybody
And play all the old school hits like Lodi Dodi
Connections like OPEC while ya hung up like a Kojak
I'm real like a ruby while ya fake like a pinchback
That's imitation gold if you didn't know
My rhymes flow as my vocab' grows and grows
I freak it for the basslines always walkin on ya frontline
Catch me while I'm boomin' in ya alkine
Yo I'm out like a shot from a tec
You need to think twice just to earn respect, so

[Chorus: Pete Rock](5X)
"Sucka MC's please think twice
You don't know what you doin'
Think about that"    -> Special Ed - Think About It

[Verse 2: Pete Rock]
Aiiyo, as I come through for '95 with the flav'
So amazin' the Boy Wonder's blazin'
Respect the mic check, one, two
Cause I display the funk material as I stand imperial
To others, gotta lay low, undercover
Cats flow to the hands for the crowd in the stands
So here I am, plus I rock to please the public
They want it, word son, they want it
To hear the Soul Brother disperse words of wisdom
When InI comin' direct on the set
So represent, a lot of rap niggaz came to win
But the style played out when they chose a different route
Whatever as I stay true to the game
Word to the troubled T-Roy you know my name
Keep an eye on the stakes as I watch my back
Think Twice before you try to grab the mic and react


[Verse 3: Rob-O]
Yo beg your pardon...
Whn I put one to the head now the funk shit startin'
Fine soul I headline for my public get mine
Yeah my rap subjects packed with potential
Plus the versatile elements to crush ya scent
I get down so cheer the mental
Rhyme-pro I'm Rob-O the super spectacular brown skin nigga from Africa
Blowin' up so it's impossible to get
With the highlight and fly right and the niggaz on my dick
Split when it's through, gotta skip with the Guinness Crew
Give a shout out to my Uptown Crew, word up
From New York, New York the Big Apple
To the four square miles Uptown armed for battle
Your niggaz is nice but my advice is you can't suffice
So Think Twice, uhh

And the Second one is "Microphonost Wanderlust" and is a Rob-O solo

[Rob O]
Yeah yeah wake it up all my niggaz
In the cut this going to all my  my
Yo what I am saying wonderlust
Check it out and yeah ya don't

[Verse 1: Rob O]
I put feelings aside I know I am
Hesitation wasn't of the plan
See the R to the O B, O the God cipher
Controversial rhyme writer who rhyme tighter
Who shine brighter make moves and manipulate
Educate vocabulary and articulate
Writing shit at will while can't relate
Instead of rushing make ya wack ass wait
Robodeno enormous lyrical with endurance
Coming with the slick performance
Now check the chorus
Unpredictable still so y'all wack niggaz chill
I bubble with the underground mass appeal
Constantly ya know the God be beatin it up see
We got it through out new york chaotic
Wild style retarded movements like robotic
Coming with the press that moves pride of

Wonderlust and ya don't stop
For all my niggaz in the cut yeah yeah
To all my people I trust yeah wonderlust
Yeah yeah ya don't stop
For all my niggaz in the cut
Uh wonderlust

[Verse 2: Rob O]
All these beats with my rhymes attached
Form a new creation that y'all catch
But check it I won't sweat it
Give ya corny ass credit
The God gettin athletic I am copacetic
Unpredictable supreme factor super spectacular
Sparklin like crystal with this style
Wow ya average attempts is minimal
See adrenaline pumps through the heart and
Most chumps when Rob O
Time and follow through presentation
Writing rhymes like ya equation
From punctuation the trumpcation
I keep it fly nigga face it
Now quote this conversation
Dope rap component topple many opponents
Solo microphonist yo who's next to hold this
Robo o yes yes y'all phenomenal next plateau
Unsur mountable

Wonderlust yeah yeah ha ha
For all my niggaz in the cut
Ya don't stop
To all my people in tha

[Girl sings 2x]
Caught up in the who's and what wonderlust wonderlust

Yeah yeah to all MC's to get open

[Verse 3: Rob O]
Check it out
Now rappers ask yourself same question
Why I am dope in this profession
Is because I don't front or pretend yo
Or is it because I am that nigga robodendo
The captain of the platinum voice of top choice
From Manhattan over Japan and all points
Magnificent like contrary all the hype
Plain and simple it's time to grab the mic it's on
Verses paragraph like correspond like the Qu'ran
You witnessing the discipline like Islam
Steadily in aggressive excel like I expected
Lyrically you're not impressive
Guess who's next it's Rob O east coast uptown
McC the most I am spreadin Necca all around
Selecting the sound I make party people how to DJ and mix
The shit ya like that wonderlust lust lust lust

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Uh uh 96
Check it out ya don't stop

[Girl sings]
Can't touch us

Hope y'all like it, I just had to share it with y'all cause I've been bumpin' this album a lot for quite a while.Anybody who wants the album - peep me for a hook-up
