Lyrics

[Intro - Chanel]
Feel it comin' in the air
Hear the screams from everywhere
I've been gifted by the thrill
An exciting love for real
Can't be scared when it goes down
Got a problem, tell me now
Only thing that's on my mind
Is who's gonna run this town tonight...
Who's gonna run this town tonight...
We gonna run this town

[Verse 1 - MattyB]
We are
Yeah I said it
We are
Meet my generation
Pledge your allegiance
Spittin for a reason
All black everything
Black Js, black pearls
All black everything
and my girls be talented
edgy but no Dillinger
Growin, showin depth
and getting ready for originals
Building my familia
I'll explain later
But for now I'm going for what's real and not a vapor
Gotta couple hands down but on my way up to the top
Shorty says she got a voice, let me hear it and we'll talk (chyeah)
I'm talkin' wild shows, videos
Ri-Ri gettin' bigger
Back to runnin' circles 'round these jokers
Now we squared up
Hold up

[Chorus - Chanel]
Life's a game but it's not fair
I break the rules so I don't care
So I keep doin' my own thing
Walkin' tall against the rain
Victory's within the mile
Almost there, don't give up now
Only thing that's on my mind
Is who's gonna run this town tonight
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
(Is who's gonna run this town tonight)
Hey-hey-hey-hey

[Verse 2 - MattyB]
We are
Yeah I said it
We are
Call me little Ceasar(uh)
Little Matty Beast(uh)
Please follow the leader
So Eric B. we are
Microphone fiend
But don't sweat the technique
Please y'all
(Auh! Auh!)
And ain't nobody fresher
My Flow is some kind maze
(Ah!)
mazingly better
On the tape I'm rippin'
but the other side, they jealous
We got a banquette full of style
They got a table full regulars
Like a birthday with no cake
They should throw they hand in
'Cause they ain't got no spades...
G for great MC with class
another grade passed cause the flow's built to last.
ha what's up

[Chorus - Chanel]
Life's a game but it's not fair
I break the rules so I don't care
So I keep doin' my own thing
Walkin' tall against the rain
Victory's within the mile
Almost there, don't give up now
Only thing that's on my mind
Is who's gonna run this town tonight
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey-hey
(Is who's gonna run this town tonight)
Hey-hey-hey-hey
