Track Name: Gold
People might say these days that Sage is done with the dibby dibby dibby,
But know where ever this flow goes I'll always have nuff Skippy lyrics with me,
Iv donned this shit from day its how I paved my way while living in this city,
Im a London boy I'll come and destroy anyone who tests just really isn't thinking.
Oi Subby how do they know about us?
No plan, just jammed on some colab stuff
Roll that skud coz now we're known round clubs
Throw hands up we bring that grown man gruff.
People don't know that much bout us, it really is so sad cuz. What they kno bout the times of the nomad thugs and beating a man till his bones snap blud?
I didn't really ever wanna bring it back to a time where man was mad on his grind, all he had was his time and he snatched what he liked, what you thought was yours was actually mine.
With spray cans on the mind we broke into the tracks in the night, yes Graff was the vibe,just a family of rats on a hype - never caught coz we ran for our lives.
It was fun, gimmi the mic and my mind runs, reminiscing bout times of a life gone. It doesn't matter if money comes in and I enquire bucks I'll still be that little shit that I was.
You can throw me a deal and throw me a mill I'll still be that little shit that I was. I'm thinking to steal your big bag of pills, I'm still that little shit that I was!

Is that you rudeboy? Some wasteman don't have a clue rudeboy? Two boys might run up on u rudeboy, take ur phone and both ur shoes rudeboy.
What u gone do rude boy? Get eaten up and then chewed rude boy, get beaten blacker then blue rudeboy. Rudeboy don't act like your rude.

Oi rudeboy, don't watch that, ul get swung with a big "ah fuck off!"
I'm never catting Boone's lyrics always coming with my own, up and in my own so don't watch that.
I rhymed the same thing twice don't watch that, three times now fuck you watch that!
Four times and rahh I'm taking the piss, lazy little shit, five times - watch that.
Schizophrenic, twist the end kick ur head in, lit by 10, sick incentive, this the message:
Fuck ur life get demented, straight to mad skip depression, then youl get it.
Life's not fun its just reckless, make the most this your session, pick your weapon and choose the side which ur repping - bad or evils the question?..
..Let me rise up never come down, one round pill is not enough for the drug hound, some found 16 bags so I run round him.
Peak. Goals. Slums now sick.
Big cheese man never comes down quick.
If reckless makes reckless then reckless has come from what one round did..
... Every bodies repping on a movment, who is who and why they looking stupid? You is you if you recognise and choose it.
They will never televise the music, maybe fake but never none of the true shit.
Who gives what fucks? Bend ur mind and loose it.
2 hits, 4 half's, 1 drops my new shit.

Is that u rudeboy?...
