Can’t stop won’t stop, can’t stop, won’t stop
Critical analyst, rich rhyme philanthropist
Song saint, Bu the great, lyrical evangelist
I’ll handle this with pen and fist and
Extreme prejudice for pessimists that try to resist this.
Relentless, my rhymes carry on your shoulders like
Expenses, senses, breaking likes fences,
Extensive, periods of time spent running for
Advances in this rap game no second chances.
Offensive, defenses, maneuvering intenses
A rattling synopsis, circling circumstances
Enhance this, manicured sound like a sculptist
Terrorist, acknowledge the occultist.
Hidden, unseen, unnaturally obscene, so I
Keep clean, ‘cause things ain’t all that they seem, kids
Following dreams with quick fix schemes just like
Fiends for an end to their means, they’re never champeen.
At a glance it’s clear we networking like branches
Movin’ like avalanches, the plan is
Expand this, thought, put it to practice,
Classic, no other way, yo respect this.
Or get dissed, I’m pissed from life struggles
Workin’ hard for my goals and dreams, never settle
Get it all, till you got no space to fit it all
Give your all, till you’re old, gray and did it all

Can’t stop, won’t stop, can’t stop, don’t stop
Never Settle
“I need my real Hip-Hopers right here with me,
You know what I’m saying”

I build this first stage like apprentice
Turned pro, instrumentalist, daily journalist
Headlines read “return of the prodigal”,
MC periodical, the microphone chronicle
Rare oracle, priceless, unstoppable
Connect like five Lions, we untoppable
Can’t beat it, in control, can’t defeat it
Words carry the weight, I can’t wait I mean it
Best believe it, you set it off, I’ll complete
Get Open guaranties that we’re gonna to achieve it
With no stress, the most bless to manifest
Overcome all contests and won’t accept less
Settling never, shine forever, as
Long as we stay open and we’re together
Unified we can’t be denied, like atoms collide
The level of head knock is shellshock magnified
We won’t settle or take shorts
Playing for keeps, just like a soldier we holding fort

Can’t stop, won’t stop, can’t stop, don’t stop
Never Settle
“I need my real Hip-Hopers right here with me,
You know what I’m saying!”

Never Settle!!!
