    lyrics
    Yeah, I like that! Uh-huh!
    Oddisee I appreciate the recommendation.
    Lets go... yeah, yo!

    VERSE 1
    Name: Substantial, Address: Nunya!
    Baltimore resident, but people know I'm from the...
    County where the Prince is a G, it's no wonder
    That even in the dead of winter, the block is live as summer
    Where dudes got that work, but I'm ji' mo' selective
    Pass the line that is second you will find my objective
    I'm seeking a position that will further my development
    While fattening my pockets 'cause I don't rhyme for the hell of it
    You need my work experience and past employers?
    I'm down with QN5. Former U.V. Ink owner
    And I use to be with Hyde Out and the late great Nujabes
    Wherever I go my motto's "Be great do your best"
    Responsible for making sure that we stay stupid fresh
    Locally and globally while they help me get these groceries
    And keep the fam eatin', I keep the fans fiendin'
    And hit them with the potency of a professional, dope MC
    You know it's me!

    HOOK
    Can't speak for these other guys but
    You can check my resume man, I'm qualified yep
    Why would I lie bruh, (Nobody as fresh as this
    Hit man for higher, check my references!)
    Can't speak for these other guys but
    You can check my resume man, I'm certified yep
    You can put’em high up, (Nobody as fresh as this
    Hit man for higher, check my references!)

    VERSE 2
    I should be your 1st pick, long before the second interview
    3rd LP's a 4 out of 5 minimum
    Even with short pockets stood taller than Sentinel
    Drive is uncanny, not your average individual
    You'd think I graduated from the Xavier Institute
    But School of Hard Knocks is where I took my classes
    Where I got my Master of Ceremony tactics
    My Poor Righteous Teachers taught me to make only classics
    You may know me as this Educator and a Vocalist
    Who the hell you know's a Team Player and a Soloist
    Can dress to impress but I'm fly when I'm plain
    Too thorough, if I quit you would hire me again
    So fire him if he lame I've come for what's mine
    Work around the clock so I can keep up with the times
    Since elementary I flipped a dub from a dime
    While they get the pink slip I get the W-9

    HOOK

    VERSE 3
    I'm the man for the job, while these slackers do jobs for the man
    Knowing that it blows, sometimes it's involving their hands
    They are really hoes. Don't you want a person with integrity
    Setting goals, tailored for success, you can measure me
    On my accolades and my skill in the field of rhyme
    Future so bright, man, for real, leave you feeling blind
    Plottin' chart toppin while I chill and I'm killin' time
    Skills gettin' better but they still ain't as ill as mine
    Don't take my word here's some references to check up with
    You can call the Gods, UAU is who they represent
    Holla at Odd, he made the beat the I mettle wit'
    Or Tone & PackFM because my famm is extended trick
    Call my peeps Marcus D if you want that better shit
    Me & my bre-th-ren... stick together like a pair of tits
    Call Kool Herc & Busy Bee, I ain't arrogant
    But here's a quick reminder just in case it still ain't evident, yo!
