Welcome to Exit thirteen
I am your host
LL Cool J

You said I was finished
And Father Time was the blame
You disrespected my legacy
And threw dirt on my name

Told DJs he's over
He ain't spittin' the same
What he says is irrelevant
Hip-Hop culture has changed

When I walk in the room
Young boys look at me strange
As if I am a relic
From some long forgotten game

It makes my blood boil
Turns my eyes to flames
I built an empire
They tried to kick me out in the rain

So I called on an inner power
It's hard to explain
It's like a holy spirit
Utilizing Hip-Hop slang

I'm beyond the gold grills
And logos on chains
You see I changed rap forever
I elevated the game

Launched the greatest label
In the history of rap
And for twenty four years
I carried it on my back

I've always shined brighter
When I'm under attack
I might be down for a moment
But I always come back

It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war
(Uh, yeah)

It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war
(Check it)
It's time for war

This is a resurrection
I'm back from the dead
They told me to quit a long time ago
But I conquered instead

I had dreams and visions
Swirlin' around in my head
I had this hunger deep inside of me
That has to be fed

Hip-Hop will respect
All the blood that I shed
I have a covenant with God
I have swallowed the bread

Hip-Hop my co-defendant
With this mic I thee wed
I made an entire generation
Obey what we said

I'm talkin' France to Germany
From Italy to Japan
From London to Belgium
To Afghanistan

From Farmers Boulevard
Smokin' a blunt with my man
To writin' rhymes on a ironin' board
To build Def Jam

You see, I'm the undisputed
King of all Hip-Hop
Everythin' after is my legacy
Like it or not

And I will keep makin' history
I can't stop
LL Cool J
Eternally hot

It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war
(Uh)

It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war

Look at how easily I flipped it
And switched the style around
Competition losin' their footin'
I see them fallin' down

They will plot against me
It kills them because I'm ballin' now
Some of y'all didn't pick up the phone
But I got you callin' now

This is a job that must get done
Even if I become public
Enemy number one

If I had to pick up an Uzi
That weighs over a ton
I will attack Hip-Hop
Until competition is none

Nobody on God's earth wants it with L
You end up tortured
And trapped in psychological hell
And this is the beginnin'
Of a new era in rap

LL Cool J, feel the impact
It's okay if you call it a comeback
And let them know
I'm ready for combat

Tell those dumb motherfuckers to fall back
The crown looks wrong on your head
I want that

It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war

It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war
It's time for war

It's time for war
It's time for war
