lyrics

MobStyle shut it down...
Live and underground...

Inventive instrumentals with the skill to tell a story
Keep it simple, mostly real with a bit of an allegory
When it began, we were banished to the dimension of man
Saw its inhabitants oppressed and so we gave em a hand

Two obedient kids, raised country and religious
Yo we played along, observed the human way
We learned your dance and song

Persevering through indoctrination, religion, education
System benefiting mostly corporations

So we infiltrated, set up a base camp, and laid plans
To spark minds through entertainment
Over a hundred degrees - and I'm the kerosene

Now we some hip hop superheroes, empowering the people
To stand up to the oppressor from the street into the steeple
Leaping buildings in a single bound, battle villains and we
Bring em down - through the whole village the name will be renowned

Keep it comin now - we keep it evil, keep it genius, never dumb it down
We got that new sound from the underground - and all my people guaranteed they bout to bump it loud singin
MobStyle shut it down - music for the masterminds
Live and underground - grooving as we pass the mic
MobStyle shut it down - music for the masterminds
Live and underground...

Imbued with the qualities of sages,
Wisdom beyond your age and never complacent
Consistent demonstration, gladiator nation
Convinced that we will make it - and that's Mob

She got the glory of the moon in the pitch black night
She that bright, riding through life like it's a half pipe
Don't ask why she that fly, rippin through bad guys
With surgical tactical black knives - and that's Style

Modern day warrior - he'll Shaka you up
And then he'll Zulu you down. As it tears through the air
Staff makes a whistling sound. Pierce through fears
With his spear, embraced the rage - no he ain't playin around - and that's Mob

Mix in precognition with a little hyper-vigilance
Slippin from the grip of thinkin ignorance is bliss
To save the victims of the fall and all its obvious effects
But too raw to be depressed; a goddess in the flesh - and that's Style

Keep it comin now - we keep it evil, keep it genius, never dumb it down
We got that new sound from the underground - and all my people guaranteed they bout to bump it loud singin
MobStyle shut it down - music for the masterminds
Live and underground - grooving as we pass the mic
MobStyle shut it down - music for the masterminds
Live and underground...

Living on the crest of the wave, yes I'm afraid
But I do it anyway, daily steppin up my game
Free spirit, tomboy - I don't care much for fame
And yo KriStyle is the name. Remember back in the day
I was in the back of the stage
But for the last three years I been all in your face

Ay the largest of brains up in the
Smallest of frames, teaming with the clumsy giant
But I won't fall on my face, just gotta
Master my method so I can harness the strength

Of the ethereal material'll
Steer you to a marvelous place
Cause we were made to create, and not be turned into slaves
Oh no that can't be our fate -

MobStyle, we the vessels of change

We got the rebel mind and an anarchist heart
And revolutionary spirit, let the party start
We never stop. Whoever said that we would probably flop
Ought to be karate chopped - y'all shouldn't naughtily talk

Keep it comin now - we keep it evil, keep it genius, never dumb it down
We got that new sound from the underground - and all my people guaranteed they bout to bump it loud singin
MobStyle shut it down - music for the masterminds
Live and underground - grooving as we pass the mic
MobStyle shut it down - music for the masterminds
Live and underground - grooving as we pass the mic
