R.A. The Rugged Man

R.A. The Rugged Man - Midnight Thud lyrics

Yo, yo

I will not stop runnin' 'till I'm winning the race

I can't live with myself being in second place

[R.A. the Rugged Man]

Ay yo, here's a little story, something for your ear

Like the new millennium version of Paul Revere

Except this ain't fiction, this is real life here

I be 30 years old and even lasting a year

Yeah I made my mistakes, yeah I paid my dues

Hated by blacks, made enemies with jews

I was 7 years ahead of my time in '92

I said things that wasn't accepted 'till '99

It's awful, I don't care about the past no more

I don't wanna be rich, trust me, I'd rather be poor

Now think about it, known as how I never shown my face

I don't really want fame, I just want my space

Yeah, I had hard times like Run-DMC

But actually I feel pretty blessed just to be me

I never seen the penitentiary

I've been shook since I seen the ? kid in Penitentiary 3?

They say I should have been more, I should have been great

Like I'm washed up now, like it's already too late

I can feel all the hatred when I walk in the place

But y'all are too scared to say shit to my face, it's


Midnight (repeated several times)

I'll come for you

When the clock strikes midnight

I'll come for you

[R.A. the Rugged Man]

Ready for hell, ready for war

Yeah, it's nice to be loved but I like being hated more

All the sudden magazines give me good reviews

It used to be my name on the equal bad news

All the ? that I'm a genius, all the ? I'm bright

Like I just now became intelligent overnight

I be as 1990 grimey as I could be

And finally society can see admiring me

And finally dirty dirty boy, dirty b

Wordy wordy free, dirty boy

Yeah that's me

My father specialist 5th class Thornburn John A

A Vietnam war hero, green berret

Thaught me how to shoot guns and thaught me how to fight

Thaught to left hooking, thaught to uppercut with the right

Thaught me all about bitches, they can ruin your life

Like in his prime, look what happened to I and Mike

People wonder what it's like and how is to be me

The most underrated in hip hop history

Think I care if you disagree?

You ain't got no song out

And right now you're busy listenin' me
