I’m a slim samurai comin' straight from the south
That's dope alliteration comin’ straight out my mouth

Cali’s got the weather and they got hills
I’m just a poet... that's flexin’ my skills
Yeah I slay the rhymes, and I kill the hooks
I’m worse than the murderers in horror books

See me flowin’ with the skills of a ninja
Comin straight atcha with the heart of a soulja
Me? I'm just an educated fool
Not really interested in lookin’ cool
Never been behind bars but I been in school
You gotta use your mind, man, cuz it's the tool

So gimme a clean beat and I will kill it
So gimme a clean sheet and I will fill it
Gimme a 10-second track and you'll start to feel it
These rhymes are my property so don't try to steal it

I can keep it real and I can keep it clean
Cuz life ain't always nice it can be mean
But you gotta stay true and do your thing
Cuz it ain't all about gold and rings

There's more to life than what we see
But it takes an open mind and curiosity
To change the world we gotta change ourselves
It's more than just havin’ books on the shelves

Me? My name is Battle of Troy
And if you’re looking for rap wisdom then I’m yo boy

Gimme a pen and paper and I’ll make ya think
Open your mind up more than any drug or drink

Oh, yeahhh

My ambitions are simple n
Easy to understand
To make the world better
Is my master plan

How do I plan to do this
You be askin’,
Let’s start by not puttin’ each other in a casket

This is intellirap, somethin’ you never heard
It’s a new, dope mix between a G and a nerd

Since when was being dumb somethin’ cool,
But I’d rather be actin’ right than playin’ a fool

The biggest lie you’ll hear is that it’s good not to know,
But that’s how they keep you from gettin’ the dough
