SKY ABOVE, CITY BELOW
------------------------------------
And now for news of our own West Coast…
Yo Tairrie, show em who’s Ruthless!

The original with the subliminal verses
So blasphemous with the classic curses
Cataclysmic as a wordsmith
Darkness lurks beneath the surface
Poetic catharsis, ominous on purpose
The antithesis to the mindless bullshit
Hexing and better than I’ve ever been
The only chick to go from rap to rock, back to rap again
And goddamn, I’mma speak it my way
Got the power of resurgence like Misty Day
Resurrecting the past as I rep Los Angeles
Streets sparkle from the dust of the vacuous
Reviving my roots with confidence
Conscience, no vapid sex over substance
So I don’t need no one to co-sign this
Timeless with my superflyness

No stars in the sky tonight, a storm’s on the rise
Winds blowing and the tides are high
Don’t be looking my way, if you’re looking for a fight
I don’t care what you say just spell my name right!
No stars in the sky, storm’s on the rise
Winds blowing and the tides are high
If you’re looking my way, don’t be looking for a fight
I don’t care what you say just spell my name right!

Tairrie B. motherfucker remember me?
Sucker free Southern Cali with a colorful history
The infamy precedes me
But don’t shake my hand if it’s not nice to meet me
Voice poised with authority, articulating fire
In my verses like a lyrical cipher
Mystical scryer, vocab spectacular
Hail to the chick with the dope vernacular
It’s déjà vu so you must be trippin
No strippin’ just verbal riffin’, listen
I’m a Hollywood villain killin’ like Garbo
Pre code, Mata Hari chillin’ at the Chateau
Spittin’ to this or screamin’ to heavy metal
Leavin' lipstick prints all over the instrumental
Let the smoke settle while I take a new form
So be warned I’m reborn in the house of Capricorn

No stars in the sky tonight, a storm’s on the rise
Winds blowing and the tides are high
Don’t be looking my way, if you’re looking for a fight
I don’t care what you say just spell my name right!
No stars in the sky, storm’s on the rise
Winds blowing and the tides are high
If you’re looking my way, don’t be looking for a fight
I don’t care what you say just spell my name right!

From the desert to the sea to all of Southern California…

Night falls on the LA skyline
Iconic like the Hollywood sign
Dramatic, you’ve been waitin’ for this like an addict
So sick when I summon the magick
Hotter than the concrete jungle in sunshine
Solidified with a Golden State of mind
Took an oath to the West Coast
And I respect the architects, con safos!
Drawing down the moon like a daughter
From the hills, highways to the water
Call upon the winds as I craft my chant
A lunar eclipse will manifest my wrath
If the sky was God, I’d believe in him
But the city is the Devil so I’m livin’ in sin
Speech unique, technique antique when I talk
For Women In The Coven of Hip-hop

No stars in the sky tonight, a storm’s on the rise
Winds blowing and the tides are high
Don’t be looking my way, if you’re looking for a fight
I don’t care what you say just spell my name right!
No stars in the sky, storm’s on the rise
Winds blowing and the tides are high
If you’re looking my way, don’t be looking for a fight
I don’t care what you say just spell my name right!
