    I was a fiend before I became a teen
    I melted microphones instead of cones of ice cream
    Music orientated, so when Hip Hop was originated
    Fitted like pieces of puzzles, complicated

    'Cause I grabbed the mic an' tried to say, ?Yes, y'all?
    They tried to take it an' say that I'm too small
    Cool 'cause I don't get upset
    I kick a hole in the speaker, pull the plug, then I jet

    Back to the lab without a mic to grab
    So then I add all the rhymes I had
    One after the other one, then I make another one
    To dis the opposite, then ask if the brother's done

    I get a cravin', for I fiend for nicotine
    But I don't need a cigarette, know what I mean?
    I'm ragin', rippin' up the stage
    An' don't it sound amazin' 'cause every rhyme is made

    An' thought of 'cause it's sort of an addiction
    Magnetized by the mixin'
    Vocals, vocabulary, in verses, you're stuck in
    The mic is a drano, volcanoes eruptin'

    Rhymes overflowin', gradually growin'
    Everythin' is written in the cold, so it can coincide
    My thoughts to guide
    48 tracks to slide

    The invincible microphone fiend, Rakim
    Spread the word ?cause he's in
    E F F E C T
    A smooth operator operatin' correctly

    But back to the problem, I gotta have it
    I ain't into solvin' it, silly rabbit
    The prescription is a hyper tune that's thorough when
    I fiend for a microphone like heroin

    Soon as the bass kicks, I need a fix
    So gimme a stage an' a mic an' a mix
    An' I'll put you in a mood or is it a state of
    Unawareness? Beware, it's the re-animator

    A menace to a microphone, the lethal weapon
    Or assassinator, if the people, they steppin'
    You see a part of me you never seen
    When I'm fiendin' for a microphone, I'm the microphone fiend

    After 12, I'm worse that a gremlin
    Feed me hip hop an' I start tremblin'
    The thrill of suspense is intense, you're horrified
    But this ain't the cinemas of 'Tales From The Darkside'

    By any means necessary, this is what had to be done
    Make way 'cause here I come
    DJ cuts material
    Called 'Imperial'

    It's a must that I bust any mic you're hand to me
    It's inherited, it's runs in the family
    See, I wrote the rhyme that broke the bull's back
    If that don't slow ?em up, I carry a full pack

    Now I don't want to have to let off, you should've kept off
    You didn't keep the stage warm, so step off
    Ladies an' gentleman, you're about to see
    A past time hobby about to be

    Take it to the maximum, I can't relax see
    I'm hype as a hypochondriac 'cause the rap be
    One hell of a antidote, somethin' you can't smoke
    More than dope, you're tryin' to move away
    But you can't, you're broke

    More than cracked up, you should have backed up
    For those who act up, need to be more than smacked up
    Any entertainer, I got a torture chamber
    One on one an' I'm the remainder

    So close your eyes an' hold your breath
    An' I'ma hit?cha wit the blow of death
    Before you go, you'll remember you seen
    The fiend for a microphone, I'm the microphone fiend

    The microphone fiend
    The microphone fiend
    I'm the microphone fiend
    I'm the microphone fiend
