lyrics

City of legends
Yeah you heard it right
All present and correct
Grand Imperial Genghis
Yo, these frauds want to steal my music
For those who don't know there is a code to this here
Let's get it in

Never before
Has the world witnessed such an event
Genghis is home
Let it be known I will defend my throne
Send out a call
Send a message far and wide, I have returned
Sound the horns
Fill the streets with celebration
I arrive
Cooper’s town caps slanted, my heavy steps
Shake the earth
Shouting out rap sentence the new superb
My legions telling stories of my adventures
I strike my staff on the ground just to mark on my entrance
This writing's embossed now with the mark of a legend
(high exhalted CA double)

Since I've been gone
I've kept a watchful eye on you all
I've seen the rises and falls
I hold my head for the glorious dead
I know the schemes
I've seen the plots, know the ins and outs
Infidels and foes pure hearted and foul
Heart of the Midlands, I harness the power
And give back to those who held it down and kept their half of the bargain
My heart full of chagrin
I go hard for the martyrdom
Flow's lava, scolding I father this art of wisdom
Marvellous bars blistering I'm hot tar, cross arms
Stood on the arch of my kingdom, start the procession

These are my memories, this is my soil
My heart pounding in my chest and my blood boils
The tension rises, the crowd roars
My voice falls to rapturous applause they record for prosperity
And all will feast on these rarities
Brought from the four corners of the globe at any measures
Through all perils I bring untold national treasures
Back from the dead the ambassador Caps is in presence
Last of the masters of rap's classes, class is in session

Move on 'em

To all my correspondents, respond or not responding
I drop the rawest constants, city of Nottingham
I promise one thing, it's the hottest content
My style is often on some off the roster
Written or off the top, son
For all who see my who see my presence, present or not in presence
You hear the rumbles in the ground when we're approaching
On horseback in rare furs, my lungs burst
I dive headfirst to bring the great laws to all
Those who oppose fall and have your history taken
Imperial and devastating

I wear the amulet, the skill flow and flair immaculate
The light catches off the square medallion
Salute my outfit, tilt your cap for my squadron
Elite generals, rhymers and leaders, all sworn in
Born and raised for one purpose
To build and raise the empire above the Heavens, then surround it with lions
Spirit of light using fire that flies
You're an ally or an enemy
The great Khan, I capture this earth
Destined for greatness, the true creator of verse
Born holding a blood clot, the emcee returns

I appear with microphone flailing
Cavalry of thousands, certain victory increase my territory
Now spread word of my exploits
Move from point to point without mercy I annihilate
All who go against I put the full weight on them
Use my full might and strategy, conquer and expand
Turn tracks to ashes, this I command
The most fearless fearsome rap style in the palm of my hand
Leave the surface smouldering, trailing flames
As we move forward, higher and further into hostile terrain

Imperial Genghis
The world leaders have returned, make it known
