THEY CALL ME:
Dah CANdy WRAPpah!
jus’ a lil flakey like
saltine CRAcka’s!

born an’ raised ON THE
streets o’ Flint CON-CRETE!
...a city LOST
was once the HEART
o’ MICHigan...

I shake my head and I
LAY all those memories to REST...

‘cause them streets there
are now a-crumblin’
as I walk aWAY froma
life o’ softcore thuggin’...

I live now in
the capital LANsing-
BIG 10 UNI’...
don’t KNOW-WHAT to DO wit’ me!
as I BREAKdance mah entrance
onto the HIPhop scene...

I MICDROP mah CANdy WRAPpah!
…ya hear it a-crinklin’?
singin' it...
SHE’S a BITTA-SWEET!
