about

I wrote the lyrics to this at Stanford, after a Sociology course. I recognized the commitment that my professor had shown in becoming so well informed in her particular area of research. I decided that I wanted to be great at something, and then I remembered that I already am :) I'ma Emcee! yup, yup!

lyrics

I’ma Emcee
Words by Ahmad Ali Lewis
Music by Ahmad Ali Lewis & Kip Wilson

CHORUS
I don’t know what you think bout me
I can flow but I’m no celebrity
And I don’t rock many designer clothes
But I be traveling the world and rocking shows

I’ma emcee
(You know what? You know what?)
I’ma emcee
(Yeah I is yeah I is)
A fresh emcee
(What I am? What I am?)
I’ma emcee

VERSE 1
Yup I’m that fly
Better not try
Shout at that guy
Bout the last guy
No joke no satire
He dope I’m better
Step in the club they like come down selecta
Never been Hollywood just kick it with my folk
M-O-D on TV the same M-O when I’m broke
Happy when critics hate it and when they admit I’m dope
Content on top and when I got dropped from Interscope
Flow so cleverly won’t elope I’ll never leave my people
Won’t sever me cause me no celebrity
I’m sharp as a tool I like know how to use my mic
When MO-D rapping crowd clapping like ooh alright
Others crews are frightened
They know this dude’s a titan
With these raps and he’s back and WeCLAP and you know it
It’s Ahmad with these raps and he’s back and WeCLAP and you know it

REPEAT CHORUS

VERSE 2

(LA)
South Central is my hood was 9 rocking mics
At 13 I started feigning for hip-hop it’s like
We lived a Good Life before the Project Blowed
Freestyle rhyming trying to shine and find a pot of gold
I got a son I got a flow I gotta make it
Like Thought said blow or go as far as I can take it
Hip-hop I couldn’t shake it sip two drips of water
Then battle til the crowd is yelling you ripped it harder
MOD ain’t never knew my father guess I got it from mom
With these psalms and these raps and he’s back and WeCLAP and you know it
It’s Ahmad with these raps and he’s back and WeCLAP and you know it

REPEAT CHORUS

VAMP SINGING

Cause I’ma emcee
See?
Trinity would call me a poet
I be rocking this and you know it
Fell in love with hip-hop
Now I’ma be emceein for life

Yo I’ma emcee
See?
Trinity would call me a poet
Ahmad be rocking this and you know it
I Fell in love with hip-hop
Now I’ma be emceein (Then I take it up like)

Yo I’ma emcee
Trinity would call me a poet
I be rocking this and you know it
Fell in love with hip-hop
Now I’ma be emceein for life
