"Life Work (Double Album)"

[Intro: Jae Supreme]
Yeah
Jae supreme
And I am
Queensbridge best-kept secret
This is my testament
My legacy
Yeah
Qb true story

[Verse 1: Jae Supreme]
I was born in The Bridge, real talk
MC capitol, Queensbridge new york
Veteran of the six blocks of hip hop
12 street, Vernon, the dime block
That's where the passion for the music began
With DJ Marley Marl, MC Shan
Marley played The Bridge first time in the park
That's where I got the spark
Yo, I need to do that there
Mit showed a youngin just how to prepare
Work them boards right there
Plug in the mic, and make your voice sound real clear
Tap a beat out on that 808
A little practice and you could be great
Now i'm lookin' for a name that's mean
J-A-E cut supreme
I got approached by young Trag
Ready to put B.D.P. on blast
For that record "South Bronx"
Me him and Face made the answer "Soft Bronx"
But Marley wouldn't spin it though
On B.L.S. even though we was ready yo
But whatever the case
We still recorded mad sh*t on 90-minute cassette tape
Waitin' for our time to shine
My time to shine came in '89
Jamel said ayo Jae, Shanté
Need a DJ to back her on stage
Had a job but I quit it
Rather travel the country, on a free ticket
So that's what I did for 2 years
In between shows, studio engineer
For Tuta Aquino and Mark Kamins
He the one that made Madonna famous
Did Nas' first demo, Villain
Then I got a deal for myself at Cold Chillin'
Just for the hell of it, it was irrelevant
But the money was good, and it was evident
n*ggas tried to stick me in the hood
That's all part of the game, it's all good

[Hook: Entaraj Kwa]
Never made it to the pinnacle of super stardom
But I'm still here, so I beg your pardon
I'm blessed—no regrets
Not a household name, but I'm still the same
Queensbridge blood runnin' through my veins
And I'm blessed—no regrets

[Verse 2: Jae Supreme]
On the road, makin' new friends
Stayed in Canada for six months and then
Returned to the States
Bumped into hots
Joined forces to make some mixtapes
Dreamteam was the name, look it up
We went platinum on the streets, look it up
My man Trag reached out again
He needed a beat for CNN
Capone N Noreaga kept it real
When they spit on my beat, half a mil
Got a write up in The Source wit 'em
Unsigned Hype called my work "tight production"
Cormega got released from jail
Me and hots did demos for the Def Jam deal
Like Goodfellas with him Nas and Syl
And Dead Man Walkin' was real
Shanté hit me up again
For the Sprite commercial, five deadly women
Another deal, another check, it gets deeper
That's when I started The Gatekeepers
CDs and DVDs on deck
I been gained my respect
Never was it for the fortune and fame
I remained the same, and I never changed

[Hook]

[Outro: Jae Supreme]
Yeah
Yo, this ain't even the whole story
There's plenty more yo
You wanna know more
Cop the book, cop the doc*mentary
Yeah—Jae Supreme
Queensbridge best kept secret
I'm still here yo—word up
[Entaraj Kwa: Queensbridge in my blood, yeah]
