lyrics

I got turned on to hip hop at 12 years of age, even back then I had dreams of bein' on stage,
A Master of Ceremony, a performer, as the story goes on I am just getting warmed up,
I remember the first time I heard CL and Pete Rock, the sensation of getting chills when the beat dropped, I made a complete stop and let the music sink in, conscious rappers like De La Soul got me thinkin',
And I was really diggin' on what the west coast was bringin' to the table, artists like Pharcyde made me feel stable, I was really vibin' out so fuck watching cable TV, 'cause Mrs. Hip Hop was speakin' to me,
The only thing I'd watch was Yo MTV raps, and that's a fact,
As I'm bringin' it back to when it all started, I'll never forget my past regardless, even the good times and the hardships,

Time just keeps on movin' on, to remind me of my past I'm gonna use these songs Time Capsule-Time Capsule,
As time passes you by, we all know time flies, but you got to keep your eye on the prize, through time you grow wise, that's the truth that's no lie, that's the truth that's no lie,
Time just keeps on movin' on, to remind of my past I'm gonna use these songs Time Capsule- Time Capsule,

Nowadays Hip Hop music has raised the bar, some people thought it wouldn't make it this far, alot of shinin' stars, now look at how bright we are, at the MC battles we use words to spar,
The doors of opportunity are now ajar,
It's not about cash, ho's, and fancy cars,
The listeners now are demanding more, what your rhyme and reason, or what you rhymin' for, my rhymes are pure, I represent the underground it's time to score,
I'm not talking about being materialistic, I'm talking about the recognition for being gifted, so don't get it twisted,
If you might have missed it, to make it simplistic, if I have to get specific song writing gets me lifted,
That's the gist, so you need to get with it, Eclectic Counterparts here to pay you a visit,

Time just keeps on moving on, to make a gift of the present I'm gonna use these songs Time Capsule- Time Capsule,
As time passes you by, we all know time flies, but you gotta keep your eye on the prize, through time you grow wise, that's the truth that's no lie, that's the truth that's no lie,
Time just keeps on moving on, to make a gift of the present I'm gonna use these songs Time Capsule- Time Capsule,

There is a very bright future for this industry, there's a lot of talent, I could write a list of MC's, that will most definitely go down in history,
If I was gone tomorrow they would still be missing me,
A permanent impression left through the words I speak, longevity is reached by being unique, an expression through rhymes and beats, a constant progression as I ride the beat,
Divine style right now is not the time to sleep, or doze off,
My flow is always top notch, to rock the spot for Hip Hop we always got props, to represent our residence no hesitance, word excellence,
Ladies and Gents may I commence with the elements, a new development we embellish it for the hell of it,
We stay strong, far from delicate,
That's the way the story goes as I'm telling it.
