Operation Lock Down
[Intro: Ruck, (Rock), and {Buckshot}]
{Ruck, Rock taking you up a notch higher}
I mean, it was cool at first, yunno?
Jus, yunno, rapping about nuhthing
Buht then, like, whut happened wuz
(B.C.C.) The people they started, yunno, to talk about things that made sense
(B.C.C.) I wuz like “What the f**k?”
(B.C.C.) People read and sh*t I wuhlike “Get the f**k outta here”
(B.C.C.) Whaddo they think they doing?
(B.C.C.) I dunno where that sh*t come from, man
(B.C.C.) I wuz like, “Yo it’s f**king amazing, man”
(B.C.C.) For real
(B.C.C.) For real, I don’t even know how this sh*t started

[Verse 1: Rock]
It went down like this:
One little n***a snuck through the door
Peeped the scene, sniped a few, then crept through with two more
Heads were getting Nervous—that’s three now, they wanna break north
Too late—five more tore the door straight the f**k off
It’s on now, getting down in the trenches
Eight soldiers getting in more a** than splinters on raggedy benches
Since it’s war, ain’t sh*t sweet
This Clik disperse and then they transform to chess pieces

[Verse 2: Ruck]
On feared grounds, never spare clowns
Ruck and Rock be the rooks, hold the square down, are you prepared now?
I tear down any opponent who simulate
Styles buckwild—meanwhile, your a** I obliterate
Demonstrate tactics, you need practice
First of all, your monkey a** rhyme like you’re backwards
I should smash kids when they try to get beyond
Limits. Timid but they could never get with Sean
(Say word) That’s word, Sean don’t give a
What about none of y’all n***as or snakes that slither (Hisssss)
And if ya wanna come test The Inflicsta
I got your name, number, address, plus your picture

[Hook (Overlapped with Interlude 1): Rock and Buckshot]
This is the B.C.C. and Double-D
In the Ninety-Now, we lock it down
This is the B.C.C. and Double-D
In the Ninety-Now, we lock it down
[Interlude 1 (Overlapped with Hook): Rock]
Now hear this, all of you f-ing little, cute, rhyming-for-coochie emcees: haul a**, hahahaha

[Verse 3: Ruck]
Peep my words, yes, my heavenly words, words
That get n***as locked up in Seventy-Third
Prefer to chill, but the son can’t do that (Nah)
Due to my temperature, tempted to bring it where your crew’s at (Hah)
You lack with the skills that it takes to make
Ends meet ‘cause it seems that your a** is weak
My occupation’s Operation Lockdown
On your radio station, whoever got the hot sound

[Verse 4: Rock]
Who wan’ test, y’all? Mr. Mal Dude, a.k.a Rockness, y’all
Guard your chest, y’all, nothing can protect y’all (From who?)
From Buckshot on down to the rest, y’all, we’re running through your set, y’all
F**k the rest, y’all, we be the best, y’all (Yes, yesh, y’all)
I crack backs North, South, East to West, y’all
With no stress, y’all, how deep do I get, y’all?
Got ancestors and Decepts I never met, y’all
Ready to wet y’all, place your bottom-dollar bets, y’all
Chessboards become mess boards if you flex, y’all
Nevertheless, y’all, we’re out to save this sh*t before it’s dead, y’all
Lock it down with the full-court press, y’all
[Hook (Overlapped with Interlude 2): Rock and Buckshot]
This is the B.C.C. and Double-D
In the Ninety-Now, we lock it down
This is the B.C.C. and Double-D
In the Ninety-Now, we lock it down
This is the B.C.C. and Double-D
In the Ninety-Now, we lock it down
This is the B.C.C. and Double-D
In the Ninety-Now, we lock it down

[Bridge 1 (Overlapped with Interlude 2): Buckshot]
Ain’t nothing moving in the Ninety Now
Unless my B.C.C. show you how
You could get with the sh*t that we got: the rook, the rook
The Ruck, the Rock remain to keep sh*t locked down

[Bridge 2 (Overlapped with Interlude 2): Buckshot and (Rock)]
Hah, lock it down
Hah
(B.C.C.) Lock it down, lock it down
(B.C.C.)
(B.C.C.) Lock it down, lock it down, lock it down
(B.C.C.) Lock it down
(B.C.C.) Lock it down, lock it down
(B.C.C.) Lock it down
(B.C.C.)
(B.C.C.)

[Interlude 2 (Overlapped with Hook and Bridge): Rock]
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, haaa
This is the year, the Ninety-Now
All with no conversational substance, do not touch microphones
I repeat: do not touch microphones
This could prove hazardous, very hazardous to your health
