Lyrics

Yo, break the news and let 'em know what has just happened
Break the news that the L has got your hands clappin
Break the news that we're killing 'em with dope rappin
Break the news we call the shots like a damn captain

You never seen something like this, so I might just
Break the silence and open up your eyelids
Real name's Gideon, rap alias is Oak
Either way you better have paid attention when I spoke
Cause I don't recite any old mumbo jumbo
I speak real words and put 'em together like gumbo
I've seen a lot, in my journey through hip-hop (true)
And I consider it a lesson in what not to do
I only say this because I'm jaded
And I love hip-hop so much that I hate it, but yo
I keep on moving with my checklist
I hang around like a necklace, built like tetris
But what seems like 2000 seasons, for various reasons
I never run I only walk or else I'll start wheezing
My verbal artillery will rip apart regions
And then bring 'em back together with my smart teaching
I only wish that that people listen, cause when you don't
I might as well resort to bringing y'all the pot to piss in
I grab the quarter out the bucket that you flipped in
And give it right back because I want it like that
Yo-yo-yo, here's to a long and prosperous career
And cheers to the words that I'm spitting in your good ear
I can't lose, I dot my ones, cross my twos, take the brews break the news
You got the national boulevard blues

They say to play the rules
They say to pay your dues
I think it's time to set them loose
So now we break the news

Yo-yo-yo, break the news and let 'em know what has just happened
Break the news that the L has got your hands clapping
Break the news that we're killing 'em with dope rappin
Break the news we call the shots like a damn captain
Break the news and let 'em know what has just happened
Break the news that the L has got your hands clapping
Break the news that we're killing 'em with dope rappin
Break the news we call the shots like a damn captain

A graduate of the Greenfield Academy
Making a splash like Cannonball Adderly
They're mad at me (what for) breaking 'em down (up yours)
That's what I tell 'em and passengers for asking
Got a deep rooted passion for proving 'em wrong
That's why I walk like I'm being followed by my theme song
Introducing me, your next favorite rapper
When you're tired of the same bullshit chit-chatter
Nonsense on record, I wreck your conception
Pre-conceived notion, rectified perceptions
A whole new view, have you seeing me in 3-D
Letterbox edition, I can see it all completely
Aww shit! It's happenin again
They remember that we're dope and now they wanna be friends
But the L only rolls with the L and the team that'll fight for the L, my life is a L
From my morning cerea-L to my L in the P.M.
It's the L cause all my life I’m making moves like a GM

They say to play the rules
They say to pay your dues
I think it's time to set them loose
So now we break the news

Yo-yo-yo, break the news and let 'em know what has just happened
Break the news that the L has got your hands clapping
Break the news that we're killing 'em with dope rappin
Break the news we call the shots like a damn captain
Break the news and let 'em know what has just happened
Break the news that the L has got your hands clapping
Break the news that we're killing 'em with dope rappin
Break the news we call the shots like a damn captain
