Chorus:

Left side (stand up),
Right side (stand up),
In the front (stand up),
In the back (stand up),
On top (stand up),
Back stage (stand up),
Whole crowd (stand up),
Whole crowd (stand up). 2x

I step to the stage they already know it’s more than the coming of age,
Scoog I’m not a felon I’m more like a legend like Satchel Page,
I tell em it’s more than a dream the pen and pad became my trade,
When it comes to the music you mid as well say it became my salve,
I work and I’ma work it and I’ma work til I get paid,
My competition is 2 or 3 while Scoog’s a ace of spade,
Bottom line is I’m the finest and my time is now,
Listen my stomach is touching my ribs how you don’t hear that growl,
Rumble never stumble flow is ugly as Mutumbo,
When come to diversity yeah they know certainly I give em that gumbo,
Point the mic to the crowd that bucking and jumping and screaming loud,
I tell em the truth is here settle let me take my bow,
I got em loving the way I tilt my hat and spill my pain,
My momma raise me daddy raise me taught me everything,
Except for the late night I did my thing running the streets,
No I ain’t never sell nothing boy but I did me.

Chorus:

Left side (stand up),
Right side (stand up),
In the front (stand up),
In the back (stand up),
On top (stand up),
Back stage (stand up),
Whole crowd (stand up),
Whole crowd (stand up). 2x

I got the whole stadium rocking soon as I start the show,
And all the haters want to know how we be getting doe,
I don’t need a metaphor I could give it straight to em,
Let anyone try to come at me I’ma run straight threw em,
Back to New Orleans bar room brawlers tell em to turn it up,
Plus I’m observing you ever so personal how I be learning ya,
Marshall Middle in ’98 I never rebelling,
That’s when I first started to rap known as Legend,
Play with me I’m like Labron you Damon Jones and you get posterized,
I’ll have you looking like one of them rappers who be telling them lies,
No congregating all the it ain’t no surprise,
So tell em I’m getting this money like bees on honey it multiplies,
I love when rappers get they deals and show they grills great,
Half of em broke and fake and faking like they holding weight,
All pretenders I’m known to crush em like blenders,
They asking who I’m is I’m Scoogie never surrenders.

Chorus:

Left side (stand up),
Right side (stand up),
In the front (stand up),
In the back (stand up),
On top (stand up),
Back stage (stand up),
Whole crowd (stand up),
Whole crowd (stand up). 2x continues
