Remember the Name

Fort Minor

This is 10% luck
20% skill
15% concentrated power of will
5% pleasure
50% pain
and 100% reason to remember the name

He does'nt need his name up in lights
He just wants to be heard
Whether it's the beat or the mic
He feels so unlike everybody else
Alone/in spite the fact that
Some people think that they know him
But no/He knows the code
It's not about the salary
It's all about reality
And making some noise
Making a story/making sure his clique stays up
That means when he puts it down Tak's picking it up
Let's go

Who the hell is he anyway?
He never really talks much
Never concerned with status
But still leaving 'em star struck
Humble through opportunities given
Despite the fact that many misjudge him
Because he makes a living from writing raps
Put it together himself/now the picture connects
Never asking for someone's help
Or to get some respect
He's only focused on what he wrote
His will is beyond reach and now it all unfolds
Through the skill of an artist

This is 20% skill
80% beer
Be a 100% clear 'cuz Ryu is ill
Who would have thought he'd be the one
That set The West in flames
Then I heard him wreck it with the
Crystal Method name of the game
Came back, dropped Magadef
Took 'em to church
I like Bleach man
Ryu had the stupidest verse
This dude is the truth
Now everybody's giving him guest spots
His stock is through the roof
I heard he's f____' with S-dot


They call him Ryu he's sick
And he's spitting fire
And Mike got him out the dryer/he's hot
Found him with Fort Minor with Tak
What a f____' nihilist
porcupine/he's a p____/he's a c___
The type women want to be with
And rappers hope he gets s___
8 years in the making
patiently waiting to blow
Niw the record with Shinoda's taking over the globe
He's got a partner in crime his s___ is equally dope
You won't beleive the kind of s___ that comes out of this kid's throat

He's not your every day on the block
He knows how to work with what he's got
Making his way to the top
He often gets a comment on his name
People keep asking him was it given at birth or does it stand for and acronym?/No
He's always on the go/facing new challenges
Anytime they hear him flow
They could tell he was talented
Him and his crew are known around as one of the best
Dedicated to what they do and give a 100%

Forget Mike
Nobody really know how or why
He works so hard/it seems he's never got time
Because he writes every note and he writes every line
And I've seen him at work when that light goes on in his mind
It's like a design is written in his head every time
Before he touches a key or speaks in a rhyme
And those other fellas he runs with
The kids that he signed
Ridiculous, without even trying
how did he do it?
