Hook

Take a walk with me…
Let me take you on a journey…
Let me talk to you…
Let me share with you my story…
Let me ride…
Lil’ Ghetto Boy, destined to rise…
Hellafied by the Lime Light, to hell if I die…
And go to Hell if you should tell me I lie…
Because like Rakim Allah…
Let me quote man, I ain’t no joke…
Look into my eyes…
Witness the mind of every winner of all time…
And every sinners cry to repent…
Crucified, still I rise, and I vibe to the music…
I choose this and do this till I just lose it…
I’m unconscious…
There’s no question yo…
I’ve been blessed…
That’s unquestionable…
So unless you are soulless, let’s go get it…
One minute in the dumps, next minute you in Heaven…
Feel the funk baby…
Won’t you accompany me…
This what you want baby…
Because I got what you need…
Hook
Professa
The nod of a head and the crack of a spine
You know our backbones beat with the bang of the bass line
You know we can’t stop when we ripping these rhymes
Because it’s only hip hop that keeps us alive
It’s only big grapes that fall from the vine
So quit w(h)ining, I’m aligned for something divine
Architect a stairway, build my way to the sky
Like I. M. Pei, I am Pi
Mysterious division, difficult to define
3.14159
Spirituals and mathematics in every rhyme
I’m Optimus Syllabic, a poet in his Prime
Open up a couple doors in the tunnels of your mind
Floating up a couple levels when I hit my shit in stride
Memorize this double couplet, rewind a couple times
While I flow a couple bars, yeah blow a couple lines

Hook
Bridge – Scholar
When you’re down needing up, yeah we got what you need…
Accompany me as we stomp to the beat…
Get nasty with me…
Keep it funky tonight…
Move and groove and soothe your soul…
So right!
When you’re down needing up, still got what you want…
Let it bump in your trunk…
Don’t front feel the funk…
Follow me…
Everybody follow our lead…
Let it pump through your blood ‘cuz we got what you need!

Strongly representative of Boston and powerfully lyrical, JP Lime combines the force of Run-DMC with the group dynamic of A Tribe Called Quest and the lyrical prowess of Slaughterhouse. We are poised to supply a potent and much-needed voice to the culture of Hip-Hop and music as a whole.”
