Wale - Prescription Lyrics

Simply out of this world by choice
The world's too much for the soul to enjoy

I focus on the void and I fill it
Hopin' the depressed ain't give in and give up
So listeners give up your ears, it's your hero
From here on a heroin like high, I give off
Live off my lie and my lullaby
They itchin' for a new breath here's the calamine
And I refuse to camoflauge with other guys
You see my mind is amused of they head noddin'
I so got 'em, as hypnosis of hip-hop
'cause, when I talk they don't just watch
I make 'em feel it, the feelin's' unfamiliar
A rush of your adrenaline you can pick up a buildin'
You can become a killer, if properly scripted
The first one's free, next time I'll be billin' ya

Here go your prescription [x3]
Take your prescription

Don't let the pain getcha
I swear my lane will provide as a painkiller
A painkiller, a 16 of Percoset
Just let it chill Joe
That lil' burn that you feel, feel good don't it?
Just sit back and relax and take it easy
And let the beat play
Close your eyes, whoever uninspired
Pay me no mind, I put Adderol in y'all's
Riddle them with Ritalin, attention deficit
Niggas start listenin', and what I'm givin' them
The drug that they brain need
Them niggas sick of hip-hop so they appointed me
And I invened but the IV inside of me
And ignorance was drug of choice but they OD'd
Couldn't alone leave 'em
I am the sole leader
The young soul that the OG's still believe in
And if you not convinced keep on promotin' them
I breathe life in the game, they are Kevorkian
They provokin' suicide but as soon as signed
I drew designs for consumer's minds so in time
I do it for all y'all, do it for all y'all
Don't gotta wait long
The doctor has arrived just be patient
Please, please

Here go your prescription [x3]
Take your prescription

See, they say one has to know the past to last in the present.
So I, bask in the weather while the presence of these laggers lend me they rappin' to give gifts to my brethren.
My nigga this is more than a vocal booth, this is my, only truth, this is my risin' up.
So you can ask Black Thought if I know my Roots.
Shit, before you? uest my Love for this, just know we would play Q-Tip in the Q before you knew T.I.P.
And before you knew T.I.P. I was tippin' strippers properly to Pussy Poppin'.
So, when you ask me "What you know about that? ", ironically I'm askin' you the same question partna'.
I am hip-hop. Past, present and future.
I can rap on some old Primo, sound like the present Sigo and make it feel like a sequal to the new me, bitch.
I'm Wale, the prescription.

  39. drodum

    @nsalax16 naa its just the play on words giving respect to the roots as originators and innovators in hip hop listen to it again and see if anything negative is actually said...

  40. nsalax16

    is he dissin the roots?

  41. Ike's Lions Den

    i agree.

  42. Forty1Second

    Im from Pittsburgh and Im not really feelin Wiz. I mean hes OK and I try to support him cause hes from my city but Wale is much better and Black Thought is in a whole different leauge than both of em

  43. IDontWantTrouble


  44. Forty1Second

    Im mad I slept on this dude. I figured he was just another wack ass industry pop artist until I actually listened to this album. Son is nice. Real hip hop. Good shit

  45. Supreme Pharaoh

    this is what hip hop should sound like wale all day

  46. ridz how

    this is mine

  47. jiinxz

    wale is going over to many peoples heads pay attention people

  48. Ryan M

    we need more rappers like Wale, Lupe Fiasco and J. Cole. Idk if yall heard of Jean Grae but she nice too. and i agree people need to listen not just hear. Listen to the lyrics cause they actually have a lot of meaning

  49. theballq

    you mean people heed to LISTEN to him, not just hear him.

    His voice drown's the lyrics out sometimes, which make's him sound boring at times..IMO

  50. Bet Mat

    amen baby

  51. KeiraKatt

    I love Wale people need to hear him instead of just listening actually HEAR him

  52. scoopaka2eezy

    Ppl sleep on Wale, hiphop needs this. N some of these hip hop fans need to give these up n coming artists a chance instead bumping all this party music.

  53. Neffertiti Carey

    love this jawn......

  54. ridz how

    wow !! wale one the best

  57. V-Way

    I soo agree

  58. KING2672


  59. newcarolina2009

    yo you have to listen good to the lyrics, pretty meaningful, in the 2nd verse he mentions..basically the bs rap thats turned popular, both sides of the field though because he has done songs with wayne and gucci. never the less i understand where he's coming from, but from an outside prospective some could assume wale is cool with them...which makes things confusing, i might be diving to deep in it though

  60. newcarolina2009

    lol I cant find this album anywhere, every major outlet is sold out... of course theres Itunes but i'd like a hard copy

  61. muffinman8380

    dmv = dc, maryland, virgina. (or district-maryland-virginia, both work, but the first one is more known)

  67. Arya Aminrazavi

    every bestbuy within 25miles from me is sold out of his album so idk how accurate that is. I do live like 15 minutes from DC too so im sure the fan base is alot bigger here then it would be elsewhere

  68. Joshua Cage

    now I gotta go buy this one man, good shit. This could have been an intro but it still bump so its all good.

  69. Godsunrah

    this sound feels like home to me

  70. jcella500
