[Chorus - Sample from: "Message from a Black Man"]
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now

[RZA]
The greatest B-Boy of all time started from small crimes
While others had big tops I was slingin' small dimes
Tryin' to make the come up, the blow used to numb up
A few G's a week my clique used to sum up
Till my brother got locked up, my girl got knocked up
My closest homies each got popped up and shot up
And cops flood the block, no way to eat
So I dropped a half a G on a rented SP1200 Sampler
And a Yamaha Four-Track
The bass from the lab used to blow the f**kin' door back
While Ghost was doin' stick-ups tryin' to make a vick up
Waitin' outside for the Brinks truck to pick up
Nothing would work so we're back to choppin' nicks up
Givin' grown a** women two vials for a dick suck
When I was stressed I would head to the rest
Then the pads on the SP-12 got pressed
Makin' beats for the streets so the family could eat
In '93 Wu-Tang Clan dropped their first LP
We went platinum, Yeah we flatten 'em
Pockets got fat and um, went and got Capp and 'em
Staten's on the map and um, Brooklyn Zu is bombin' 'em
All around the world, Killa Beez start swarmin' 'em
You can't stop us, you can't block us
Rock us or mock us knock us or top us
Better sit back and watch us

[:: CHORUS ::]
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now
No matter how hard you try, you can't stop me now

[Inspectah Deck]
Can't stop me man...
No matter how hard, you better go hard
So hard, if you gonna try and stop me now
I be ruckus to rhythm like the blocks be wild
Bad enough I got the cops tryin' to lock me down
Can't nobody break my stride or shake my pride
Without a homocide case and trial
It's a long time comin', long nines bustin'
Cradle to the grave I be on my grind hustlin'
Sometimes when I think about it, have my mind buggin'
The sh*t that I been through, things that I've seen
The chicks that I ran through, places I've been
I'm a victim of the very song I sing
That's how it is in the heart of it, most want no part of it
Some will soothe the pain through booze and narcotics
I'mma hold my head, stay true to where my heart is
Either you pay with your life, or you pay dues and homage
