R.A. The Rugged Man

R.A. The Rugged Man - Lessons lyrics

[Sadat X] "R-A what's the lesson for today Rugged Man"

[Sadat X] "I am the legendary..R-A"

[Verse 1]

Yo aiiyo people wonderin' where the fuck I been

At the VIP section they ain't lettin' me in

They say; maybe if you had Dr. Dre or Timbaland

They say; a white boy need a black boy to win

Uhh Bubba Sparxx did it and so did Slim

Just Blaze is hot now why don't you get with him

I watch mad rappers bite my shit and blow up

And make millions of what I created, that's tough luck

I first started gettin' coverage around the same time

Steve Stout used to carry kid and placed luggage

I seen rappers turned from sex symbols in hard throbs

To bein forgotten now they out lookin' for jobs

I seen EPMD break up

I seen my little brother Max fall asleep and he ain't never wake up

So when I rhyme listen, seriously

When I spit I'm givin' you the truth clearly who I really be

It's an audio version of reality TV

I had deals from Russell Simmonds to Master P

Even five year old white girls be rappin' today

On the playground like 'go shorty it's ya birthday' (Go, go, go..)

"Here's a little story I got ta tell"

"I am the legendary"

"R-A" "Rugged Man"

[Verse 2]

Yo yo yo I seen good days sun rays church sundays

Made love made war been rich been poor

Lost friends lost hoods lost my dough

Seen beef between Bad Boy and Death Row

I seen deceased take the life for my sisters kid

Six months on the earth is what he had to live

I seen Biggie Big L Big Pun pass away

Buffy from the Fat Boys, Jam Master Jay

I mumple 'fore they blew up with Mystikal and Jay-Z

The Neptunes came to see me at D & D

I knew this chick named Norah a lounge singer

A year later she a six Grammy award winner

I seen flatliners I seen cannabisses

I seen Lil Zane see I seen mad misses

You ran through that ten percent disses

I seen A & R's get fired for takin' pisses

Stop whinin' the fuck nobody listens

Who else riskin' they career they stick to be indifferent

Switchin' the tradition stickin' to this shit they really livin'

I don't care what's hittin

Listen this is my fuckin' life that I'm spittin

"Here's a little story I got ta tell"

"I am the legendary"

"R-A" "Rugged Man"

[Verse 3]

I made peace with myself now how bout that

I hated life I wanted to die a few years back

I was mentally ill it's hard to come back from that

But I got through it now I got my sanity back

Y'all are like H-B-O fighters get the money and fame

Get beat up like Klitschko and Sugar Shane

Or get beat like Vernon Forrest or Prince Naseem

And you all turn pussy when you get that green

I got love for Havoc from Mobb Deep

When I was broke sleepin' in the street

He hooked me up with a free beat

Alchemist you still my little buddy

Althought you stole that Royce the 5"9 +The King+ beat from me

I ain't down to sign autographs and shake ya hands

I don't want trendy ass followers as fans

I don't wanna sell records, I don't wanna be big

I don't want MTV runnin' up in my crib

I don't wanna be light in the music biz

I don't want fans that don't know who G Rap is

"Here's a little story I got ta tell"

"I am the legendary"

"R-A" "Rugged Man"

"Here's a little story I got ta tell"

"I am the legendary"

"R-A" "Rugged Man"

"what's the lesson for today Rugged Man"
