It’s been a long timeI shouldn’t have left you
Without a strong rhyme to step to
Think of how many weak shows you slept through
Time’s upI’m sorry I kept you
Thinking of thisyou keep repeating you miss
The rhymes from the microphone soloist
And you sit by the radiohand on the dialsoon
As you hear itpump up the volume
Dance wit the speaker ’till you hear it blow
Then plug in the headphone ’cause here it go
It’s a 4 letter word when it’s heardit control
Your body to dance (you got it) soul
Ditects the tempo like a red alert
Reaches your reflexso let it work
When this is playingyou can’t get stuck wit
The stepsso get set and I’m a still come up wit
A gift to be swiftfollow the leaderthe rhyme will go
Def wit the record that was mixed a long time ago
It can be done but only I can do it
For those that can dance and clap your hands to it
I start to think and then I sink
Into the paper like I was ink
When I’m writingI’m trapped in between the lines
I escape when I finish the rhyme...
I got soul

You got it (4x)
I know you got soul

Picture a micthe stage is empty
A beat like this might tempt me
To poseshow my rings and my fat gold chain
Grab the mic like I’m on soul train
But I’ll wait ’cause I mastered this
Let the others go first so the brothers don’t miss
Eric b. break the sticks (you got it)
Rakim will begin when you make the mix
I’ll experiment like a scientist
You wanna rhymeyou gotta sign my list
’cause I’m a manifest and bless the mic I hold
You want it next? then you gotta have soul
’cause if you ain’t got itI’m a make an encore
Take the micmake the people respond for
The r’cause that’s the way it’ll have to be
If you wanna get on after me
Think about itwaiterase your rhyme
Forget it and don’t waste your time
’cause I’ll be in the crowd if you ain’t controlling it
Drop the micyou shouldn’t be holding it
This is how it should be done
This style is identical to none
Some try to make it sound like this but you’re getting me
So upset that I’m wet ’cause you’re sweating me
I drip steam like a microphone fiend
Eager to mc is my theme
I get hype when I hear a drum roll
Rakim is on the mic and you know I got soul

You got it (5x)

I got soul (you got it) that’s why I came
To teach those who can’t say my name
First of allI’m the soloistthe soul controller
Rakim gets stronger as I get older
Constant elevation causes expansion
I write my rhyme while I cool in my mansion
Then put it on tape and in the city I test it
Then on the radio the r’s requested
You listen to itthe concept might break you
’cause almost anyone can relate to...
Whoever’s out of handI’m give him handles
Light ’em upblow ’em out like candles
Or should I just let him melt?
Then give him a hand so they can see how it felt
I’m not bold just cuz I rock gold
Rakim is on the mic and you know I got soul

You got it (4x)

Now I’m a stop to see what you got
Get off the mic before I get too hot
I want to see which posse can dance the best
It should be easy ’cause the beat is fresh
Now if your from uptownbrooklyn- bound
The bronxqueensor long island sound
Even other states come right and exact
It ain’t where you’re fromit’s where you’re at
Since you came hereyou have to show and prove
And do that dance until it don’t move
’cause all you need is soul self-esteem will release
The rest is up to yourakim ’ll say peace

You got it (10x)
