lyrics

VERSE ONE

[E] crack too slow [A] you yes
[E] moving like being watched by video refs
[E] emcees stress [A] no him on this roll
[E] holding up people's tracks like a fuckin' toll
[A] oop [E] big and bold but got nothing like vagabonds
[A] going nowhere fast [E] like Beasley in a marathon

[E] but rappers gone can't handle the wit
[E] vacate from the zip sick pace I'm equipped
[E] true pace I haste to race your clique
[E] like speeding my ship ship speeding my trip
[J] formidable quickness I'm in addict
[J] just give me a hit and flip it in double time
[J] syllable silliness hey
[J] these rhymes are flipped with frivolousness
[J] competitors slit their wrists
[J] coz 206 admits speeding
[J] our sound pound for pound
[J] eclipses anything they can spit

[A] you tried [J] tried test [A] test the best [J] but came up
[A] short [J] like Spud [A] Webb [J] at the [A] dunk content [J] yes
[F] fuck con-testing y'all are a set back
[F] your set's [A] meh [F] hence rap is set back
[A] events [F] uneventful uninventful
[F] slow wit tone deaf [A] unintentional?
[F] we be focussed your process is low-res
[A] so hopeless [F] you'd even die a slow death


HOOK

[J] you're like [T] la-la [J] we're like [F] a powerful pace
[J] you're like [T] la-la [J] we're like [F] your crown has been taked
[J] you're like [T] la-la [F] out of boundaries down and out of our way
[J] you're lounging slouching on the couch in a daze [T] ha-ha

[J] The crowd loves the way 206 moves fast [E] moves fast
[J] We flip competition and we speed right past [E] we speed right past
[J] you're so self conscious the whole world knows
[J] your crew's going nowhere [E] not even slow


VERSE TWO

FAST

[F] I'm Jimmeny Crick springing to hit the pinnacle weaving left
[F] and right literally left witnessing types literally screaming by
[F] and yep chickadees spread like wild-fire listening to Billy the Kid
[F] of mic style who's physically sick for lickety split

[F] gosh damn [A] miss behave
[F] obvious she dates a slow emcee [A] 'cause she's late
[E] your release wrapped in razor tape
[E] your lyrics never jump off the page like paper weights
[E] it's time to wake [A] so [E] wake [A] and [E] get up [A] now
[E] even your raps read on time laps look slow [A] how?

[E] We configure a bigger trigger through rigour you wigga figure
[E] you Digga no bigger than pingers fed to Jerry Springer mingers
[J] you figure your feeble wit'll be quicker than us
[J] we're quicker off the mark than Boogie Nights actresses at scene cuts

[J] the scene's amused 'cause your [A] style is shit
[J] and you abuse substance [A] 'cause you got none of it
[J] nah my crew we put the boom in boomin'
[A] we consume minds [J] your raps are just time consuming
[J] but assuming your music's a hit you'll still get the flick
[A] fucking with the mighty 206


HOOK

[J] you're like [T] la-la [J] we're like [F] a powerful pace
[J] you're like [T] la-la [J] we're like [F] your crown has been taked
[J] you're like [T] la-la [F] out of boundaries down and out of our way
[J] you're lounging slouching on the couch in a daze [T] ha-ha

[J] The crowd loves the way 206 moves fast [E] moves fast
[J] We flip competition and we speed right past [E] we speed right past
[J] you're so self conscious the whole world knows
[J] your crew's going nowhere [E] not even slow


VERSE THREE

[J] you're like low [A] gear [J] low [A] speed [J] low [A] tempo
[J] our verses tailgate yours 'cause your words [A] drive home slow
[J] like a blind centenarian your thoughts are
[J] sluggish and late for fuck's sake [A] stop sharing 'em

[J] but let me reciprocate as I devastate emcees by filling their featherweight
[J] minds telepathically with rhymes that're made for heavyweights guys
[F] our temperature rise to resonate twice as rapid right and levitate up
[F] and at 'em like sub atomic ions might it's chemical science

[A] we so cool [F] your whole crew's molecules slow
[A] losing steam [A] reduce you to a watery flow
[A] truthfully [F] should know what makes a solid but oh
[F] you don't hit the charts even periodically bro


[F] ah we more driven outwitting the laws of physics
[F] y'all thinking y'all cause friction to witness our force finish nah
[E] y'all diminish we breaking through flawed tradition
[E] tear 'em 'til all are finished and open to us like doors and bitches

[A] quick draw [E] but you ain't shooting stars
[E] blue print bars leave red faces at large
[E] we're going somewhere fast you're going nowhere slow
[A] we post haste [E] while [A] you postpone


HOOK

[J] you're like [T] la-la [J] we're like [F] a powerful pace
[J] you're like [T] la-la [J] we're like [F] your crown has been taked
[J] you're like [T] la-la [F] out of boundaries down and out of our way
[J] you're lounging slouching on the couch in a daze [T] ha-ha

[J] The crowd loves the way 206 moves fast [E] moves fast
[J] We flip competition and we speed right past [E] we speed right past
[J] you're so self conscious the whole world knows
[J] your crew's going nowhere [E] not even slow
