Lyrics

You think from LA to NY to
서울의 끝
Ain’t nobody fuckin’ iller
쓰잘대기 없는 겸손은 겨울의 끝
넌 더이상 떨기 싫어
just a dirty spitter 여기저기 찔러
너와 나도 모두다 겁없이 질러
근데 넌 질러보고 여기저기 빌어
넌 니 사무실의 coffee getter
어차피 서로 씹어봤자
노이즈 마케팅을 밀어봤자
수천번 개처럼 짖어봤자
하루살이 rap scene 길어봤자
So stop drop what u got u
Ain’t no biggie u ain’t no pac
잘난척 강한척 그게 힙합 no
침몰한 문화적 빙산의 일각
so 나부터 고개를 숙일게
어린날의 성질은 다 죽일게
작은 주먹이 풀릴때 보다
더 큰 주먹이 뭉친데
cuz it’s R E S P E C T
or shut it up like the BEPs
shout out to my family
M O V E M E N T Move

come respect me
믿지 못하면 test me
come respect me
알지 못하면 check me
come respect me
or fucka come and get me
respect the name respect the game
back to the future set the change
come respect me
믿지 못하면 test me
come respect me
알지 못하면 check me
come respect me
or fucka come and get me
respect the name respect the game
back to the future set the change

힙합씬의 길은 많기에
길을 달리해 말을 달리네
마른 갈기에 땀이 날리게
시를 바침에 나를 살리네
서로가 서로에게 남인 채
형제를 외쳐대며 창이 된
날이 선 맘의 이를 갈기에
one love 이란 그늘에 긴 밤이 돼
같이 같은 펜에
각기 다른 세계관이 만든
책의 값이 다른 체계
감이 다른 셋의 갓이 바른 생애
가치 마른 샘에 괄시라는
패배감을 안고 바라봐
게시판 속에 장수한 십장생
나를 까고 말한 자
내 심판속에
잠수 탈 심장 폐
텁텁한 군용 디스로
근 4년의 향을 피운 추모 diss 곡
나를 걱정하기 보다는
검게 탄 속의 숯을 지우고
굳이 원한다면 군용 디스
no 이유 보태 일반 디스로
입이라도 뗏으면 한다면 실력
and 노력을 해 디스 플러스로

come respect me
믿지 못하면 test me
come respect me
알지 못하면 check me
come respect me
or fucka come and get me
respect the name respect the game
back to the future set the change
come respect me
믿지 못하면 test me
come respect me
알지 못하면 check me
come respect me
or fucka come and get me
respect the name respect the game
back to the future set the change

didn’t I tell ya I’m 본좌
너 눈이 먼 자들을 골라
쎈 척을 하는troublemaker
이미 늦어버린 초짜
귀로 들린 소문들은 믿지마
나참 바라보고 있으니 빈티 나
틀린말을 계속 내게 지껄여
결국 눈이 돌아 거꾸로 sixty nine
some underground boys never learn
respect란 단어는 간지인가
머리속에 텅빈 백지가
왜 자리 잡은 씬을 마구 헤치나
서로 디스와 비리는
방송국보다 더 많아
좀 더 나아가 매니아 리플 몇개면
하늘을 날아가
머리 위로 왕관이 올라가지나
이런 관대한 힙합 체험
아마 너의 가치는 백원
너는 제법 웃겨
미래 컬투의 제 3 멤버
니가 씹을 껌 개껌
내가 씹을 껌 너의 평생 앨범
밥맛 떨어지는
머슴아들을 멈출 비상계엄

come respect me
믿지 못하면 test me
come respect me
알지 못하면 check me
come respect me
or fucka come and get me
respect the name respect the game
back to the future set the change
come respect me
믿지 못하면 test me
come respect me
알지 못하면 check me
come respect me
or fucka come and get me
respect the name respect the game
back to the future set the change

Yeah, For the culture, to have a future
you need to go back to the past
Dedicated to….

Translation

You think from LA to NY
to the edge of Seoul
ain’t nobody fuckin’ iller?
End this false humbleness by this winter
You are sick of shaking
Just a dirty spitter, stabbing here and there
You and I fearlessly yell
But you get bored and start begging
You are your office’s coffee getter
Regardless of it we chew each other out
Push the noise marketing
Bark with the voice of several thousand dogs
Raise a day-fly’s worth of rap scenes
so stop drop what you got
you ain’t no biggie, you ain’t no pac
Acting cool, acting tough, is that hip hop? no
a visionless custom, not as rich as we think.
so I will be the first to bow my head
kill the attitude of my young age
the unity of many fists
trumps just the one
cuz it’s R E S P E C T
or shut it up like the BEPs
shout out to my family
M O V E M E N T Move

Come respect me
if you don’t believe me test me
come respect me
if you don’t know come check me
come respect me
or fucka come and get me
respect the name respect the game
back to the future set the change
Come respect me
if you don’t believe me test me
come respect me
if you don’t know come check me
come respect me
or fucka come and get me
respect the name respect the game
back to the future set the change

There are many roads to the hip hop scene
to run the road, you make your words distinct
plow the field, fling the sweat
I offer my poems, and so i live
In this state where we are strangers
Yelling we are bros sharpens their teeth
In the wounded hearts of the novices
Under the shadow of “one love” night begins
We are on the same side
But individually create different world views
In the organization our book values vary
Three with different vibes, facing life together
The negligent jealousy of diminishing value
Hold on to the feeling of loss and face it
The long living ones put on the notice board*
Cut me down with words
My heart goes underwater during my judgment
Because of the fed up military diss
The memorial diss song that’s been spreading its scent for almost 4 years
But far from being worried
I erase the charcoal from my darkly burnt core
If you really want a military diss
no reason Ill supply a regular diss
If you open your mouth, if you are gonna do it
Do it with skill and effort, a diss plus.

Come respect me
if you don’t believe me test me
come respect me
if you don’t know check me
come respect me
or fucka come and get me
respect the name respect the game
back to the future set the change
Come respect me
if you don’t believe me test me
come respect me
if you don’t know check me
come respect me
or fucka come and get me
respect the name respect the game
back to the future set the change

Didn’t I tell you I’m the original sinner
You pick on the farsighted ones
acting tough troublemaker
The already late start
Don’t believe the shit you hear with your ears
I’m looking at you and you look cheap
The wrong words sound just like chatter
And my eyes spin in my head sixty nine
Some underground boys never learn
Is the word respect sly?
The empty head filled with white space
Why carelessly dig up an established scene
Our disses and irrationalities
are numerous than the broadcasting stations.
A little more age, with a few more mania ripples
you fly in the sky
Does the crown fit on top of the head
This is the generous hip hop experience
But I bet your value is 100 won
You are pretty funny
The future 3rd member of the duo Cultwo**
The gum you chew, is fit for dogs
the gum I chew, is your lifetime album
Making me lose my appetite
A toxic game that would stop a slave’s son.

Come respect me
if you don’t believe me test me
come respect me
if you don’t know check me
come respect me
or fucka come and get me
respect the name respect the game
back to the future set the change
Come respect me
if you don’t believe me test me
come respect me
if you don’t know check me
come respect me
or fucka come and get me
respect the name respect the game
back to the future set the change

Yeah, For the culture, to have a future
you need to go back to the past
Dedicated to….
