      Now when I say 2-0, you say 
      Nah, you know the rest, 
      This is our scene 
      our music, our movement, the history lives through us 
      I write to the beat and let life play the guitar strings 
      Despite the drama, there's respect and comradery 
      Every time one of my friends is mentioned in my philosophy 
      It's a rite of passage, I'm not trying to be corny 
      I got love for Sportn' Life, Alpha P, Massline, and Onry 
      Every time somebody steps out on the road 
      They bring a little Northwest soul with them, amen 
      Alright then, just so you know 
      I try to carry that everytime that I rock a show 
      So, turn my sound up 
      Ricochet off our mountain 
      It's Good Medicine that Chief Sealth would of been proud of 
      This is our city, town pride, heart, blood, sweat, tears, I-5, North, South side, vibe, live, ride down these city blocks 
      And never will be stopped 
      They tryin' to shut down the clubs that my city rocks 
      Now Mr. Mayor why would you enforce an ordinance? 
      Music it saves lives, these kids out here are supporting it 
      And through the art form we've learned the importance of community 
      Truth to the youth so they know what's up 
      Yup, and as a public school student 
      I learned from my teachers, but became through my music 
      Take that away, that's a vital 
      14 Fathoms Deep, Do the Math, Tribal 
      My greatest teachers: B-Self and Vita 
      Wordsayer was my mayor and things have changed 
      But I carry the torch and what I do with that flame 
      Is lit everytime that I step on the stage 
      The skyline is etched in my veins 
      You can never put that out, no matter how hard it rains 
      
      "Northwest, making you feel the vibe" 
      "check how Seattle do" 
      "coming to my side" 
      "I mean I like how y'all do (thank you) but we on to new—" 
      "Put it down for the town" 
      "With music" 
      "making you feel the vibe" 
      "check how Seattle do" 
      "coming to my side" 
      "when my peeps know my crew bring the flame" 
      "Put it down for the town" 
      "Wearing that Seattle blue" 
      
      That's right, when you put on a show 
      And watch the people seat in between the creases and the doors 
      Hitting the melly or sneaking in 'cause they're broke 
      Now leaving in between sets because a needing to smoke 
      The reason being whatever 
      The scene from Beacon to Everett 
      is in need of less ego when we kick it alright 
      I get on stage, style, share my whole life 
      Try to reach 'em at the bar where they're drinking Miller Lite 
      But the kids in the front, they bring out the passion, dude 
      Make noise throughout the show and not only when we ask 'em to 
      I watch the older cats jaded in the back 
      Hands clasped, forgot when they weren't too cool to be a fan, damn 
      Hatin' at the concert 
      You don't remember RKCNDY, watching Heiro, or vibing out to Alkaholiks 
      I know it's not the same, it never will be 
      But my, my, my, my city's filthy 
      And we've been truly dope since Supreme was up on Broadway in the dookie rope 
      Mean muggin' in Sir Mixalot's video 
      Back when Scene was rockin' house parties on the floor 
      JMG's, Sit N' Spin, and The Paradox 
      Back when Marc introduced Geo to Sabz 
      So much has changed here, so much has not 
      I was just a kid hopin' I could earn my spot 
      Try to get some props 
      Meet a promoter who'll give me a shot 
      To let me get up on stage and get the crowd to rock 
      Read a page out my notebook 
      What I thought would be respected, they would connect with it 
      Now looking over the city's the only thing that keeps me calm 
      Scattered thoughts jotted down by this pen in my palm 
      It's like my city stands still, the world looks on 
      If I could only capture its beauty and put it in a song 
      
      "Northwest, making you feel the vibe" 
      "check how Seattle do" 
      "coming to my side" 
      "I mean I like how y'all do (thank you) but we on to new—" 
      "Put it down for the town" 
      "With music" 
      "making you feel the vibe" 
      "check how Seattle do" 
      "coming to my side" 
      "when my peeps know my crew bring the flame" 
      "Put it down for the town" 
      "Wearing that Seattle blue"
