Lyrics

Welkom to Amsterdam

Written By: Tyger Vinum

yger Vinum, AKA Mister Poizonous Let me tell you a little something about the city I love. When you come to Amsterdam, it's more than women, weed, windmills and wooden shoes.

Chorus: Welkom 2 Amsterdam Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam Welkom 2 Amsterdam Yeah, yeah Welkom 2 Amsterdam Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam Welkom 2 Amsterdam Yeah, yeah

Tyger Vinum's Verse:
When you come to Amsterdam, here's a couple of facts. There's Kuaku in the summer, with the Surinam catz. There's the Uitmarkt, Dance Valley and other events.
Plus a millions different bars, if you wanna get bent. There's also concerts, if you love Hip-Hop.
In October there's a three day festival, called Drop.
There's the Cannibus Cup, if you like to smoke treez.
It attracts big named acts, from overseas.
Here's another fact, which I'll share for sport.
The Dutch were the first to colonize New York.
Before New York, it was New Amsterdam.
They sold it to the US, for Surinam.
They still got city names, that are spelt crazy.
Like Haarlem and Brooklyn, known for the N.Y.C.
Most of the year it rains, but we still party.
For the two months of summer, girls show their body.
It's a liberal country so do what'cha like.
Here the main form of transportation is bike.
But it's not all fun and games just to let'cha know.
We can't forget what happened, to Theo Van Gogh. There's weapons and warriors, wild and trife.
In the dark alleys are bums and lowlifes.
In parts of the west, north and southeast.
Catz struggle livin in the belly of the beast.

Chorus: Welkom 2 Amsterdam Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam Welkom 2 Amsterdam Yeah, yeah Welkom 2 Amsterdam Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam Welkom 2 Amsterdam Yeah, yeah Misstrezz's Verse: Chorus: Welkom 2 Amsterdam Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam Welkom 2 Amsterdam Yeah, yeah Welkom 2 Amsterdam Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam Welkom 2 Amsterdam Yeah, yeah

Misstrezz verse
First of all let me set sumthin straight,Amsterdam is the capital.
Representing everything that makes this country great.
It ain’t a nation by itself don’t get it confused.
And don’t expect to see tulips and wooden shoes.
Its more than what you see on the news,you go on a cruise.
Thru the canals , enjoying historical views.
This city gots allot of history.
If you don’t wanna be part of history, listen to me.
You going sight seeing, you might wanna lose the grams.
Gotta stay focused if you’re not used to trams.
Cuz moving around in traffic is kinda like survival.
Cuz in Amsterdam niggaz don’t know how to drive yo.
Still its mad live though, plenty of live shows.
Madd artist come thru, blunted on arrival.
So holla at me if you happen to swing this way.
I’m from Utrecht only twenty minutes away.

Chorus: Welkom 2 Amsterdam Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam Welkom 2 Amsterdam Yeah, yeah Welkom 2 Amsterdam Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam Welkom 2 Amsterdam Yeah, yeah

Tyger Vinum's Verse:
Amsterdam, a place you'll never forget.
The beautiful women of the Red Light District.
Stand behind a window in sexy lingerie.
Red lights like Burger King, you can have it your way. Experienced women, anxious to play.
For the right price will fulfill your fantasy.
It's not a taboo, you can bring your wife too.
Some do only couple, others whole crews.
You gotta shop around, like real estate.
To find the kind of girl that offers a group rate.
In this economy, only medicine's free.
One of the benefits of a monarchy.
Amsterdam's under the rule of a Queen.
Come the thirtieth of April to peep the scene.
It's a day of celebration, called Queens Day.
Every spot in the city turns to a partay.
This is home to the Heineken brewery.
Europe's diamond capital peep the jewelry.
There's a few emcees, spittin darts like a missile.
I like Negativ, and group most official.
LPC and Rhyme Fabriek spit too.
Out of the west is my crew from Pitu.
There's allot of artists, hungry like I am.
If you want uncut talent, then come to Amsterdam.

Chorus: Welkom 2 Amsterdam Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam Welkom 2 Amsterdam Yeah, yeah Welkom 2 Amsterdam Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Amsterdam Welkom 2 Amsterdam Yeah, yeah

Controlling Tha Game Feat. Kool G. Rap

Written By: Tyger Vinum & Kool G. Rap

Vinum's internationally known in cities and slums. Go head bump your gums, get beat like a drum. Reverse red rum and twist your top like a compass. Rapper assassination and the mics my accomplice. What I've accomplished, controlling peoples minds. While leaving my footprints, in the sands of time. Biterz press rewind to study my rhyme skills. Tyger Vinum's the reason that the earth stood still. One of the worse cursed with unquenchable thirst. Feed you baby after-birth from the trunk of a hearse. That's a sick visual that'll damage your spiritual. Dealing with this super lyrical Vinumous miracle. Adhering to, the hustlers code of survival. A bounty on your head then it's dead on arrival. Fuck those rap titles, save those for my rivals. I'm chasing success and boarderline homicidal.

CHORUS (2X)
We controlling the game, living in the fast lane. Forget plaques and videos, remember the names. Tyger Vinum and the legendary Kool G Rap. Two catz that don't relax until our money stacks.

Kool G Raps Verse

CHORUS (2X)
We controlling the game, living in the fast lane. Forget plaques and videos, remember the names. Tyger Vinum and the legendary Kool G Rap. Two catz that don't relax until our money stacks.

I've sold treez, mushrooms, and exstacy. Now these weak catz, think they better than me. Nigga please, I spit heat at one million degrees. Hot enough to melt the plants on the coast of Belize. With Kool G Rap we fill fake niggaz with dread. Luv big butt sluts who like giving head. Cornbread fed, like them chicks in Alabama. I'm from the east coast but spit that country gramma. Yo shorty, let me get at you for a minute. Leave her on all fours with her ass cheeks dented. My brains demented, rhymes are therapeutic treatment. Lines so hard that they crack the pavement. It's evident that Vinum has no competition. I run through opponents like a head-on collision. Microphone terrorist, with a voice of thunder. Moving crowds like the worlds tenth great wonder.

CHORUS (2X)
We controlling the game, living in the fast lane. Forget plaques and videos, remember the names. Tyger Vinum and the legendary Kool G Rap. Two catz that don't relax until our money stacks.

That's Life

Written By: Tyger Vinum

I got the green light for a record with Sean P. A week later IRS was coming after me. But that’s life right, just how things go. Shady promoters trying to keep the cash, after my show. Trying to stay level headed, get back to Amsterdam. So I don’t turn Berkowitz, Son of Sam. Counting the grams, till there’s a once on the plate. Tap the side of the scale, to help balance the weight. Staying high, dressing fly, partying till I die. Plant some treez to cut and smoke, after their dry. My girl’s stressing me out, cuz we need more money. Distant family calls my house, and it’s funny. They think I’m Donald Trump cuz I live overseas. Not understanding it costs more to live, where I be. I struggle to make ends meet, hustling everyday. Until I’m paid in full, or find a easier way.

CHORUS (2X)
Rents due ‘that’s life’ Feeling blue ‘that’s life’ A cheating wife hey ‘that’s life, right’ Sometimes it makes you wanna cut your wrists with a knife.

Don’t rest, don’t sleep, don’t even breath deep. Hungry niggaz in the room, and we on the creep. I’m a MC not a dealer, with flows that’ll kill ya. Make ya leak fluid, to show ya, that I don’t feel ya. So don’t speak, unless flames come out your lips. I got flows that orbit the Earth like spaceships. Turn niggaz to liquid, when it comes to dinero. Homegrown treez, got me high like a sparrow. Vinum’s sick wit, is comparable to no one. Other rappers spit nines, I’m an artillery gun. Life is mayhem, so the lyrics reflect that. Use action over words, cuz niggaz respect that. I spit facts, more addictive than street crack. That get white catz talking like they black. Tyger Vinum, you best remember the name. You can put me underwater and I still spit flames.

CHORUS (1X)
Rents due ‘that’s life,’ Feeling blue ‘that’s life’ A cheating wife hey ‘that’s life, right’ Sometimes it makes you wanna cut your wrists with a knife.

Real Talk

Written By: Tyger Vinum & Ruste Juxx

I came in the game, with my word and my balls.
Lost my word to a herb for an once and two broads.
I'm a low-life that smokes right, and spits acid.
Most of my homies are in jail or laying in a casket.
Situation's drastic, Vinum needs some cash quick.
Rub the barrel on your lips, like it's Chap Stick.
Strike like a condor, microphone conqueror.
Vanquish my enemies, like the god of war.
I'm trying to world tour, from Amsterdam to China.
So I can fuck a few, fine fashion designers.
Dig up in 'em like miners, searching for buried treasure.
Catz come here cocky, rollout on a stretcher.
Tyger Vinum and Ruste Juxx., when our rhymes combine.
They fry listeners' spines, like kissing a power line.
Two emcees on the grind, to feed our families.
Crushing all contenders from Brooklyn to overseas.

CHORUS (2X)
Real talk to all our soldiers with discipline.
Hustling making money, living a life of sin.
The key to the mission, don't chase the shine.
Success will manifest, if you 'focus your mind.'

Ruste Juxx's verse

CHORUS (2X)
Real talk to all our soldiers with discipline.
Hustling making money, living a life of sin.
The key to the mission, don't chase the shine.
Success will manifest, if you 'focus your mind.'

Dope is taking the beat, and spittin vicious.
Mr. Poizonous was born with a lyrical gift.
The rhyme arsonist, sparkin this honey dutchess.
Sitting in a coffeeshop, flippin rhymes thru my wrist.
I'm a writer, crowd exciter, cannabis terrorist.
With a lighter, don't test cuz the best, have tasted my fire.
Few have survived, risking their lives.
On a track with Tyger Vinum is suicide.
I provide, high voltage lyrical dopeness.
That rocks clubs and bars from coast to coast.
It's, the hungriest, villainous, musical messiah.
Milking the industry, for my every desire.
Each line inspires, wannabes to mimic me.
Committing mimicry, is emcee felony.
Copy somebody else, leave Vinum on the shelf.
Biting something poisonous is bad for your health.

CHORUS (2X)
Real talk to all our soldiers with discipline.
Hustling making money, living a life of sin.
The key to the mission, don't chase the shine.
Success will manifest, if you 'focus your mind.'

Who Dat Be ft. Sean Price

Written By: Tyger Vinum & Sean Price

Half of these catz never seen a shapeshifter.
Live rhyme spitter, with a corroded liver.
Vinum spit vicious, once I step in the room.
Flow nice with Sean Price, like twins in the womb.
Both grimay, masters of ancient styles like Pimay.
Find may, sippin on Gin Sapphire Bombay.
I'll use my index finger, to pluck out your eyes.
Then scar your face like that guy, in Vanilla Sky.
Drunk and high, off tequila from Tijuana.
I'm already a goner, seeing death around the corner.
So we can battle anywhere, I'll end your rap career.
Leave ya lost on a mountain, in the cave of despair.
Eaten by bears, leaving no corpse.
Initiated by Satan, behold the pale horse.
Absorb your life force, aspirations and dreams.
Write 'm into my verse, then sell it for cream.

CHORUS (2X)
Ahhyoo who dat be, wit the ODB of the BCC
Sean P, wit Tyger V two of the dopest lyricists in history

Sean P (verse)

CHORUS
Ahhyoo who dat be, wit the ODB of the BCC
Sean P, wit Tyger V two of the dopest lyricists in history
Ahhyoo who dat be, wit the ODB of the BCC
Sean P, wit Tyger V

I'm addicted to marajuana and amphetimines.
The only problem I got with drugs is staying clean.
I'm not a fiend, but I need to get twisted.
Lifted cuz I'm gifted, with a mind tormented.
By visons of destruction, and annihilation.
Mankinds extinction, the return of Satan.
Disguised as the president of a country.
That once was known as the land of the free.
So pardon me, if I drink to much.
And pop a couple of pills while hitting the dutch.
I'm a little depressed and my soul feels unrest.
To find a home I roam the globe like Johnny Quest.
SO don't test, cuz your flows won't move me.
The imagery I spit, you see like a movie.
Ghetto poetry about my struggle daily.
Spilling on the beat, wit my man Sean P.

CHORUS (2X)
Ahhyoo who dat be, wit the ODB of the BCC
Sean P, wit Tyger V two of the dopest lyricists in history
