D. Scotton:
Yeah! (cheering)

Feel the VIBE.

You feel the vibe?

You feel the vibe.

It's the smooth criminal, criminal, criminal, criminal.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, check it out.

Feel the flow and feel the vibe.

Feel the vibe, my voice-and-my-verses-are-vicious.

Ya taste buds rejoice, cuz-my-words-are-delicious.

Taste-the-flavor, make-the-wager, bet-on-a-winner.

I eat wack emcees befo' I get-home-for-dinner.

I'm a lyrical sinner: I'm hot-as-hell.

Dis Man is on Fire, but I'm not-Denzel.

I gots-to-yell, I get the microphone and I rock-it.

The crowd is so juiced, you'd think that I was a socket.

Got 'em in my pocket 'cuz ya boy can rhyme-at-will.

Ain't neva gonna stop-it 'cuz I'm tryn'a find-a-deal.

Lights, camera, action, it's the main attraction.

Call me Samuel L. Jackson, because "It's my time to kill."

Ain't no time-to-chill, 'cuz I'm bringin-the-heat.

This the type of banger they gon' sing-in-the-street.

Couldn't believe how long he'd go on the tracks-he-had,

you know you couldn't stop the flow with a Maxi-pad.

From the city to the 'burbs, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

Ya know I'm witty-wit-the-words, so you gotta Feel the VIBE.

If you makin money-livin-good,

you gotta Feel the VIBE.

All the honeys-in-the-hood, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

All the fellas that be struggling, you gotta Feel the VIBE,

Even the babies that be cuddling, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

In ya Tims or ya flip-flops, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

If you love real Hip Hop, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

Relax as I rap-a-bit, watch me attack-and-spit.

If otha' rappers get out of line, I just crack-the-whip.

Fall back-and-sit, I'm far from worst, I'm-the-best-tonight,

I'll relieve ya stress-tonight. Don't curse when I bless-the-mic.

Gonna taste success-tonight, chill-and-wait-and-see.

See the spot at the top. I'm 'bout to fill-the-vacancy.

That's the way-it-be, they-can-see that I got-this

It's like I'm eating spicy food, I always got hot-ish.

I'm not-Kiss, so don't even think my "Time's Up."

You see my bandwagon? You might wanna climb-up.

I'll be a trendsetter for young dudes and young-sisters.

I'll change the weather wit' my ever-turning, tongue-twisters.

I'm burning-some-blisters, bringing water-to-boil.

I'll be rap's president, but I don't slaughter-for-oil.

I can't "Cool It Now" on this beat's New Edition.

Some use the pen as a sword. I use mine as ammunition.

From the city to the burbs, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

Ya know I'm witty-wit-the-words, so you gotta Feel the VIBE.

Makin money-living-good, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

All the honeys-in-the-hood, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

All the fellas that be struggling, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

Even the babies that be cuddling, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

In your Tims or your flip-flops, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

If you love real Hip Hop, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

North, South, East, West, spit in any dimension.

This ain't a freestyle, but you're paying attention.

Watch my ascension as I rise to prominence.

I'm the Tiger Woods of lyrics, and I'm 'bout to show my dominance.

Master of music, I defeated-the-Sensei

If you don't believe-it, you can "Beat-It"-like-MJ.

My punchlines are knockouts, but haters stare-and-fight.

They might be taller than me, but I got more Fahren-Height.

Don't got a lot a bling or an Impala-wit'-rims.

But the fire flow I bring, man, it's hotta-then-Mims.

You not-at-the-gym? Ya needs to get ya weight-up.

Ya ears are listenin but ya brain is sayin "Wait Up!"

Straight up, you need to chill like an Eskimo.

I'm wild like the West-you-know? And none can test-the-flow.

I'ma keep spitting, as long as they bring-the-bass.

And, you know that a rhyme is a terrible thing-to-waste...

From the city to the 'burbs, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

Ya know I'm witty-wit-the-words, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

If you making money-livin-good, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

All the honeys-in-the-hood, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

All the fellas that be struggling, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

Even the babies that be cuddling, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

In ya Tims or ya flip-flops, you gotta Feel the VIBE.

If you love real Hip Hop, you gotta Feel the VIBE.
