18. “I’m new on the rap scene, brothers never heard of me/ Yet I’m a menace, yo, police wanna murder me/ Heini Dark drinker, represent the thinker/ My pen rides the paper, it even has blinkers/ Think I’ll dim the lights then inhale, it stimulates/ Floating like I’m on the North 95 Interstate/ Never plan to stop, when I write my hand is hot/ And expand a lot from the Wiz to Camelot”“One Time 4 Your Mind”
