A Good Name Lyrics

(Shadrach, Shadrach)

Say what you like, just spell my name right.
(I've got a good name)
Say what you like, just spell my name right.
(Yeah)
Say what you like, just spell my name right.
(I represent more than my rap)
Say what you like, just spell my name right.

I've got a good name, my first name came from slave in
Babylon,
Back in the day, rat in a cage.
Raised in chains, he trained like Rocky,
But I mean his brain not boxing.
So he got sly like Stallone, got game like 50 cent
posse,
Up first to work on his coffee grind.
In no time got promoted to the king's right hand, but
no hype man,
Had to take the right stand.
When the king made a statue of gold he told the whole
nation
That they had to bow down to it.
That, or get tossed in the furnace,
Shad and his boys said "Boss, you can burn us."
We can't serve this statue, it's worthless.
The king was mad but Shadrach wasn't nervous.
It must have been some strange phenomenon,
They walked straight through the fire, Chaka Khan.
Saved by faith stronger than flame,
If I'm half as great then I honour my name.
I've got a good name.

Say what you like, just spell my name right.
(I've got a good name)
Say what you like, just spell my name right.
(Yeah)
Say what you like, just spell my name right.
(I represent more than my rap)
Say what you like, just spell my name right.

And my last name, come down some generations.
Came down from the elevation, high in the hills of a
great nation.
With a bright future and a dark past
That won't overshadow the hope,
'Cause the night's passed down from my grandfather
Who held down the village.
Feeling when I touch down there,
Now it's spilling in the same veins,
As a good dad, with a good name.
You see, Shad's pop always played bad cop.
He had no badge though, we didn't gave him mad props,
But now I respect it, guess it's perspective.
In hindsight, seeing is corrected,
So when I get kids, if they get arrested
They going to get licks like breathmints.
Check it, he held a tough job down, held my mothers
hand.
Handed down proud roots from my motherland to my
hometown,
People say my name sounds dope, no doubt,
But that's not why I'm most proud.
I've got a good name.

Say what you like, just spell my name right. [x2]
