lyrics

Yo what happened to your rappin', you's a wordplay assassin
now they say you lackin' passion, dude I heard they was laughin'
snappin' jokes on you crackin' actin' up and making fun of ya
used to flow like Punisher, now they shunnin and sonnin' ya
legendary status on this rappin' apparatus
made classics had the baddest bitches on you nothin' average
had the Gucci, mad Polo, left your group and went solo
out west bought a low low, yo your flow lost its mojo
can't get it back, your man made your track
damn it was wack, examine the fact, your plan of attack
man it's over, you're washed up like a loofa
leave this to the youth or take a booster
find yourself a new producer
do something, hate to see my idol who was vital
lose his title, feel stifled, take a rifle and go suicidal
you was the bomb in your prime if you want to climb
adjust with the time, switch it up like Busta Rhymes


You the past bruh, gone like the 80's
your sound is outdated, overrated, can't debate it
you the past bruh, gone like the 80's
your crazy flow got lazy, leave this to the babies
you the past bruh, gone like the 80's
your sound is outdated, overrated, can't debate it
you the past bruh, gone like the 80's
gone like the 80's, the what? the 80's

Gone like the 80's I was born in the 80's
baby boy raised by the noises made by the king of pop
before Big and Pac, Rob Base EZ Rock
up in the Bronx back when Bam made the Planet Rock
what happened your passion for rappin' ain't what it was
you were famous once now it's a Tainted Love
you got a whole lot of shine once upon a time
now you ain't nobody like Chaka Khan
must be sniffing lines same ole simple rhymes
Time After Time Cyndi Lauper wasn't lying
man to man, hand to hand, call an ambulance
and let the Last Man Stand like Duran Duran
flash in the pan fame, never last goes flat like it's champagne
shit is sad, you the past it's a damn shame
putting out generic trash with a brand name
fuck is that?


You the past bruh, gone like the 80's
your sound is outdated, overrated, can't debate it
you the past bruh, gone like the 80's
your crazy flow got lazy, leave this to the babies
you the past bruh, gone like the 80's
your sound is outdated, overrated, can't debate it
you the past bruh, gone like the 80's
gone like the 80's, the what? the 80's


Dude, you can still show and prove with these young mc's, buss a move
ain't no need to sound like you just stepped out of Krush Groove
or Wild Style, used to have a wild style graphic
metaphors mastered plastered with mad multi-syllabic
type flows futuristic, before your time existed
the rawest rhyme you twisted, word wizardry, lyrical calligraphy
I find it so suitable, and useful to be truthful
this music keeps me beautiful and youthful

Ain't that the truth, leave the booth full of imagery
picture me, hanging out the roof of the limousine
like Charlie Mack I got respect for my history
Eric B, Rakim, Kane, and Mr. Cee
no mystery, legends kill shit consistently
know how to Move the Crowd, Another Victory
another loss for the has been so face it
like Twisted Sister said We're Not Gonna Take it


You the past bruh, gone like the 80's
your sound is outdated, overrated, can't debate it
you the past bruh, gone like the 80's
your crazy flow got lazy, leave this to the babies
you the past bruh, gone like the 80's
your sound is outdated, overrated, can't debate it
you the past bruh, gone like the 80's
gone like the 80's, the what? the 80's
