It's called Affirmative cause it's full of affirmations. Just so happens Affirmative is also a word used in walkie-talkie communication... BOOM!


I can make a supermodel
Bend her knees
I can make you stand in line
For MP3s
I can make you say please
Cause I got more
Sweet 16s
Than 3 MTVs
(Don't believe me)
I can make you question
Everything you know
Make you ask how fast
Whenever I say go
Cause I'm fanciful
Equipped with classic quotes
And I'm handsome, folks
I can make it sound good
Even when it seems strange
I can make you wanna
Dance in the pouring rain
When your patience wanes
Better hope my
Voice is in range
To erase your pain
One more thang
And I know that I'm right
Without a fight
I can make you think twice
Where you'll never look at anything else
In the same light
I can make you
Change your life

Cream of the crop
Is he not?
That's affirmative
And cream always
Rise to the top
That's affirmative
Anything less
Is a sub par alternative
Copy that?
Yes, that's affirmative

I'm sure that your raps
Are a drag
I'm sure that I got
Better raps in my drafts
I'm sure that your dad's
On the drag
I'm sure being humble
Is bad
So sure I'ma brag
I'm sure I'm the man
I'm sure I was born
In Detroit
But I'm sure I belong
In Japan
Now let me think
Am I sure
I can hit the target
Using only
One shuriken?
C'mon, sure I can
I'm sure I don't have
Any flaw
I'm sure you will find
No slack in my jaw
I'm sure you will find
No lack in my draws
I'd sure like to act
As your bra
I'm sure a large
Part of me's nuts
But I'm sure
I'm no dunce
I'm sure I can
Flow until dusk
And yes, I am sure
I'm a player
And I've never lost once
I'm sure replay
Is a must
