GZA - Auto Bio Lyrics

I was born, with the mic in my hand
Then I took it from Medina, to the S.I. land
I pulled up on the block, go out the truck, it was the first of pit stops
The era of the spinnin' tops, the birth of hip hop
That was somethin' I had identified with
So I made it my point to exploit this fly gift then
Myself and RZA made trips to the B.X.
A mass of ferocious M.C.'s and talent T-Rex
Giants in every ways, rap flows for every day
We knew we would get a reward for the price to pay
The basic training was beyond entertainment
Just the caters of the verbal expressions, self explainin'
Were my boots out in constant walks across the borough
Tore the troops out the frame when they challenge the most thorough
From well concealed firing positions we let off the most
Dangerous with that, slang that just shatter the coast
They say I rhyme like the bank that stop
Cause M.C.'s be more shook then the dice that drop
Especially if I'm rollin', then the point is definitely proven
Cause with the GZA holdin', that keep a nigga movin'
I walk Broadway, from Quincy to Myrtle
Back to Quincy, cut careers whatever the expense be
They heard the Legend, run to the reverend
With headaches and blackouts, worse then severe seven

And when my job is done
And it's time to get those that's comin' up some runs
So you can see where they from...

They says the product is good
We gonna sling it from the slums of the hills of the hood
'Til it's understood...

We still search through the crates of songs that just breaks
At times we play legendary battles on tapes
Unlikely confrontation with a clash of swords
In a G that was stored, be rain that just poured
On cats and dogs, water that flooded the stance
The violence and nature had trigged the violence of man
That was bloodshed, from which said, audible threats
Publicize regrets, wanted alive or dead
A hand full recovered from the dramatic plunge
While the rest kept babblin' and speakin' in tongues
Since the competition already slaked them in a scrimmage
He continued to tarnish that already faded image
Any sport, when they come short, majors don't need 'em
Then they broke, lose they homes, lively hood and freedom
The rhyme could be a blunt object that make you choke
Like too many tokes, that'll recharge in growth
This Witty Unpredictable Talent or Natural Game
With non added of slang, it's all actual fact
The high roller knock the chip off the shoulder
Strike like the perfect bowler, with catastrophic damage
My other's hard to vanish, punishment, swift to sudden
Unparalleled advantage, brought to a level
where you froze and can't speak
Trapped in the frigid temperatures of that peak

And when my job is done
And it's time to get those that's comin' up some runs
So you can see where they from...

They says the product is good
We gonna sling it from the slums of the hills of the hood
'Til it's understood...

  10. Malicious Mike

    its a shame how many views this got, this is the definition of hip hop.

    JO 7Z

    Dont worry dude, the views on you tube doesnt mean nothing; Bebber got millions views, that doesnt make him great ;) Every hip hoper knows that GZA is THE GENIUS ;) And you're right, that's definition of hip hop! PEACE ;)

  11. T B

    5 borough thorough/ strong island wildin

  12. Alex G.

    This sample was used VERY VERY wrong, its 1 dimensional. I recommend everyone listen to Prodigy "H.N.I.C." which is 3 dimensional & has more flare, more of that story telling smoke atmosphere & more thumps for your bumps, hence 3 DIMENSIONAL....ywelcome fckers ;)

    Fifty Dinar

    This instrumental is better then H.N.I.C in my opinion


    what you said indicates you're missing the whole point of gza

    Oddball Skull

    Lol what an asshole "this sample is wrong..huh what lyrics?"


    Your mind is 1dimensional...

    James Milloy

    no i think alex g is right. what he says makes a lot of sense. i mean if you really read what ole alexander Great wrote here you can purely tell that 100% of it is based on proveable fact and finally for once on youtube not just someones opinion about what they think about a song. congrats alex. you sure told us a thing or 2 about whats what. now i know that hnic is more smokey than auto bio. or is affirmitave action more mellow yellow tangy than slang editorial. or was it b.i.b.l.e. more robust puree almondy and bit more breezy than megas fallen soliders.

  13. A JP
