yeah, uh, new york, long island
LES to the T dot
emskee, moonshine, saint
to my man j-soul he just can’t relate
to my man anti just can’t relate
to my man emskee he just can’t relate
to my man moonshine come on

for kids who did bids, in cribs, and on corners
this one goes out to kids who transformed the artform
to something the world could translate
but to what the world called rap i can’t relate
and what the kids call flashy and them girls call classy
i call ashy ass cheeks, it’s not what i feel
i drop bills hardly now, because when you ain’t fresh pressed then it’s hard to be down
but i don’t mean to sound like a negative dude,
cuz i’m not that, i’m positive,
my perogative is not common
it’s a formula known to those who don’t condone those form and clothes
and only to those who get it, the chosen the few
the rest get the gas face come the moment of truth
it’s a shame how cats get a name now
that’s great, but the fact remains i can’t relate to it

money and murder with the stories about pushing weight
i just can’t relate
fly cars and yacht to prove that your mansion’s state
i just can’t relate
corny beats and never put your hands inside a crate
i just can’t relate
fake on the mic but considered one of the greats
i just can’t relate

ahh frustrated with these saturated fat flows
and cornballs with endless rhymes on cars and hoes
i can’t relate it, in any shape form or fashion
clothes don’t make a man or a plan for ill rapping

so, what’s the buzz, tell me what’s happening
are you real, or are you still gun clappening
another joint about chrome rims and fashion trends
you see the light or should i repeat the facts again

yeah, emskee’s like a 20 year veteran
peddling to get my props in this hip hop
i gotta stop the pop like perpetrating princes
from trying to take up space, in this crazy business

the instant you talking to a grown man with no grams
with plans to change dues taking you back like slow jams
on the other side i considered the fakes
with the real population people just can’t relate

money and murder with the stories about pushing weight
i just can’t relate
fly cars and yacht to prove that your mansion’s state
i just can’t relate
corny beats and never put your hands inside a crate
i just can’t relate
fake on the mic but considered one of the greats
i just can’t relate

don’t you feel like time moves too fast
that it passed in the blink of an eye
i try and think why it seemed each month hopped, jumped and skipped the last
why the sand falls around curves in the hour glass
i laugh, when i reminsice over this
i think back to when i would wish for a glimpse of the future
i used to think i’d be used to the rooster crowing
and the youth outgrowing the mindset
my minds set the mode
but my gift didn’t add up
respecting dudes was expected
and i was like fuck that, off that reckless step
they don’t buck when they come to it
like an old dog learning new tricks
for the pups who don’t get it, i’m trying to remix
let me remind ya’ll that the meekest geek is saint
had to demonstrate that we can’t relate, come on

money and murder with the stories about pushing weight
i just can’t relate
fly cars and yacht to prove that your mansion’s state
i just can’t relate
corny beats and never put your hands inside a crate
i just can’t relate
fake on the mic but considered one of the greats
i just can’t relate
