Verse 1 - Tha Bwoi Lee

(You Knead To Know)
Give me beats give something I can write to (yes),
Don't resist if its something you can fight to (no),
Yo I can relate to that (why?) 'coz I'm currently perfectly conditioned for a title (haaa),
Arrogant flow thinking was it spiteful? (what?),
That green kush giving me the higher right to (what),
Pay zero percent of attention when I aim causing damage like a rifle (brrraaa),
Plus the bars stay sharper than a knife too (you knead to know), Straightjacket in the booth going psycho (haaa),
Breathe a life into a mic what I might do (yea),
So if this life is a vicious cycle I'm the type who turn it into a recital, Neutralize the industry and all her vitals,
I'm the sign that they focus all their sight to,
Impossible to encrypt me or decipher

(Chorus)

You Knead To Know remember what you knew,
Repeat the old forget about the new,
Burning bushes so the voice of God come through,
Back when black men were Israel the Hebrew,
Huh? Remember what you knew?
Forget about the lies remembering the truth,
That black people were Israel the Hebrew

Verse 2 - Kemmykals

(You Knead To Know)
Nothing's been the same since the chasing of fame,
Spent money made change regurgitating the pain from iron,
Now it changed to diamonds they're changed in,
Forgetting my names forgetting my language,
Gave them civilization now they're begging for peace from,
Easter Islands to Mountains in Zion,
Great Zimbabwe to Thebes everybody knew me,
Started out kings and queens now they're liars and thieves,
Wrote symbols in temples so everybody could preach,
Now cymbals and tempos help me reside in the beat,
Cooking something for your ears my scriptures you need,
'Coz destiny is a destination you might struggle to reach,
Focused on how it was instead of how it should be,
Gave you knowledge and dreams so your brain can adapt,
What you lack?
Give you rain so your body can feed,
But you building time machines 'coz say you wanna go back
