      About "The Formula"

      Lyrics for The D.O.C. - "The Formula"

      High energy flowin' with the wisdom
      Sense of a rich man, knowledge and the rhythm
      This is what I'm using to come up with a style
      So I'll interact altogether better with the crowd
      Nervous for a second then the record starts spinnin'
      And I fall into the state of mind of what I'd just created
      Pump it like the Dr. D into the R.E. suckers ready to leap
      Up on the tip when we made it
      Creative so I'll never be regarded as a regular
      More than just a little bit better than my competitor
      You should never underestimate the fashion
      I hold for the stage whether I'm coolin' or thrashin''
      Clockin' the concoction created by me
      When read you read E = the D.O. to the C.
      Knowledge and the talent that my mother had born to her
      Equals an artist that won't' be worn, what is that Dre?
      It's the formula

      It's like a message that only I could understand
      But those who want to comprehend will again
      Be in the midst of the brother
      Unlike another in any way
      'Cause Dre don't play, say what the other say
      Originality is a must whenever I bust
      A funky composition, it's crush and I trust that you
      Know it when you hear a funky record with potential
      Me gettin' hype 'cause Dre rockin' the instrumental
      Nothing like what you've heard before and more, never less
      See I don't Fess, I mean I'm like fresh if not the freshest
      When I'm expressin' my thoughts on
      Vinyl, you can't help but listen up and get caught on
      Hooked because I cook when I pick up a pen
      And begin, in the end it's dope, that's 'cause I want to win
      Knowledge and the talent that my mother had born to her
      Equals the DOC, what is it Dre?
      Yo, that's the formula

      Keepin' it dope as long as I can like imagine
      Makin' each record that I do better than the last one
      Take a little time, choose the topic and drop it
      Release it, the science of makin' dope beats with
      Rhythmic American poetry
      Shipped it to stations, now many people know of me
      I'm the D. into the O. and the O. into the C. and the C. into the period
      Suckers are fearing' this
      When heard, the dope style calculated by the great wait
      And take just a second to get caught up in my record
      new but not a kid to be worn
      If something' gettin' torn up then I'm doin' the
      Tearin', not bein' torn
      Shapin up to be one for the top vocalist lyricist
      And when you hear of this
      You shouldn't choke on this
      Knowledge and the talent makes it valid
      For me to get it patented
      Dre, tellin' what I'm rappin'
      The formula
      In effect and I'm smooth, that's why I'm on the incline
      Suckers frontin' for nothin' 'cause I'm goin' to get mine
      It's in the cards and I thank I might have read this
      so don't' lie and try to front like someone said this
      Most who know thoughts served by the DOC see
      That it's a mission impossible, tryin' to rock me
      For an arena who'd ask me to perform for her
      G.O. and easily I flow and ya know usin' the formula
