Paradigm Part I (Prod. Zlender)

by Cam James



Change is comin'. At my best, I'm simply an agent for it.


Verse 1

Imma need some duct tape, some chloroform, cut-outs for ransom notes
a pair of sturdy handcuffs, and a couple antidotes
to venomous bites, some gold chains actin' as antelopes
for cubs thinkin' they lions, a chick that look like Amber Rose
standin' on the corner, mind her business, ass pokin' out
n therefore, she drawin' attention, n I been plannin' 'bout
three years, bringin' the lower elements to they knees, why?
mostly 'cause y'all motivated by vanity, greedy
you'd rather be seen at Summer Jam wit' yo hands up on the screen
than put that work in, buried my self inside of my dreams
ya hustle virgin, mine been so deep in these women's minds
that they plottin' to take my girl out, sendin' pieces for rhymes like


Play ya cards right, cooperate, and we won’t kill ya love
novacane up in my veins,‘'til I feel the drugs
fiendin’ for the needle, desert eagle, pumpin' heroin
feelin' after shocks, crack rock wasn’t real enough


The paradigm shifted…n it ain’t movin’ back
I guess I gotta live wit’, stuntin’ n movin’ stacks
popular demand, trap boys all over bandwidth
I stand with, real shit, I ain't never losin' that (2x)

Verse 2

Too many futile complaints, that shit been shifted, but you pullin' back how?
Modern day artists measurin' worth and pull they stacks out
Imma just play my latest record, while they try to transcribe it
and carbon copy all my methods, but that won't be easy
I got ideas from Confucius, and my flow from Genghis Khan
Bake w/ Hades, rock Hermés when I break Lebron
Back to this kidnappin', man I told yall my tape would hold it
Just stop strugglin', no point in fightin'
can't break the coldest
My reputation's such, that haters hate to touch, I hate to rush
but my trigger quicker than squad cars when they make a bust
illegal search of my person, they found ambition, packin' fire
check my trunk, I got respect under my spare tire


Hook (2x)
