Released in October 2013, the song is course, rather explicit.
One particular verse that has fans in awe of his ability comes at the 4:25 minute mark:
Uh, sama lamaa duma lamaa, you assuming I’m a human
What I gotta do to get it through to you I’m superhuman
Innovative and I’m made of rubber
So that anything you say is ricocheting off of me and it’ll glue to you
I’m devastating, more than ever demonstrating
How to give a ********** audience a feeling like it’s levitating
Never fading, and I know that the haters are forever waiting
For the day that they can say I fell off, they’d be celebrating
’Cause I know the way to get ’em motivated
I make elevating music, you make elevator music
We don't know if he was merely showing off his rapping muscles but it's certainly an impressive display of his lyrical abilities.
See if you can utter the above in 17 seconds flat.
