Track Name: Minnesota (feat. N Squared & T.O.N.E.) (Album Version)
(Intro: Christopher Michael Jensen, N Squared, & T.O.N.E.)
T.O.N.E.: Minnesota's in the buildin'
Chris: Yeah
T.O.N.E.: Yeah, yeah, Chris, what's good
Chris: What's goin' on, Tony
N Squared: Yo, N Squared, representin' St. Louis Park
T.O.N.E.: It's T.O.N.E., got my T.C. fitted on, ha ha
N Squared: Ha ha
T.O.N.E.: Let's go

(Verse 1: Christopher Michael Jensen)
Yo, I'm Minnesota nice on the mic, the Minneapple is ripe, so I'm takin' a bite out o' life, venture to Uptown, travelin' Hennepin to pick up my musical medicine before the sun's down, a child of the Midwest, livin' without a care, who needed Six Flags when ya had a Valley Fair, plus Camp Snoopy, this damn loose leaf is full of Minnesota memories of the man you see, unravelin' the rhymes like a big ball o' twine, flow like the Missisip' with every intricate line, you can never have too much love like First Avenue, for the place you were raised and got family, too, Minnesota, we're the star of the north, and hip hop's our bread and butter, man, it's just par for the course, you can be big without bein' from Bed-Stuy, flyin' through the atmosphere like a loon over the Red Pine

(Chorus: Christopher Michael Jensen, N Squared, & T.O.N.E.)
Chris: The winters are cold, but the summers are hot
Chris, N Squared, & T.O.N.E.: Minnesota's the place that we rock
N Squared: Some call it soda, but we call it pop
Chris, N Squared, & T.O.N.E.: Minnesota's the place that we rock
T.O.N.E.: East, west, dirty south, maybe they forgot
Chris, N Squared, & T.O.N.E.: Minnesota's the place that we rock, the Twin Cities puttin' it down for hip hop, Minnesota's the place that we rock

(Verse 2: N Squared)
M-M-M-M-M-Minnesota, the land of ten thousand places to commit a drownin', if you talkin' shit, you clownin', you need to stop the shoutin', I've stumbled across a fountain of youth and produced somethin' cooler than the top of a mountain, I'm rollin' through in my helicopter, while these felons are connin' folks like they're sellin' water, for seven dollars, me, myself, I got my ducks in a row, yo, even though it blows when my whip is stuck in the snow, ha, you're never lost, in the state of the blue ox, young rappers scrapin', hopin' that they can make it like 2Pac, I'm in the basement of a vacant shoe shop, puttin' pencil to paper, my eraser's nearly been chewed off, we're the strike force from the great white north, Nick and Chris, sick as it gets, give me that mic cord, and don't be taken by our cheery exteriors, Minne's like a Great Lake, our state's clearly superior

(Chorus: Christopher Michael Jensen, N Squared, & T.O.N.E.)
Chris: The winters are cold, but the summers are hot
Chris, N Squared, & T.O.N.E.: Minnesota's the place that we rock
N Squared: Some call it soda, but we call it pop
Chris, N Squared, & T.O.N.E.: Minnesota's the place that we rock
T.O.N.E.: East, west, dirty south, maybe they forgot
Chris, N Squared, & T.O.N.E.: Minnesota's the place that we rock, the Twin Cities puttin' it down for hip hop, Minnesota's the place that we rock

(Verse 3: T.O.N.E.)
Minnesota made head high, gotta focus, hottest MC, never lie, I'm the dopest, hocus pocus, it's magic when I spit, South Side's mayor, every man should admit I'm the shit, livin' life so erotic, drunk off o' rap and this mic is hypnotic, no chronic, but I'm Minnesota blazin', cold like a winter, fire hot, so Cajun, ten thousand lakes, that's where I was raised in, swimmin' through the swamp, girls say he's amazin', bam, tattooed, it's permanent, I love Minnesota, put it on the map, it's over, yeah, put it on the map, explosion, blueprint one, number two takeover, yeah, ya better take your dosage, relapse off o' this, never had mo' potent

(Chorus: Christopher Michael Jensen, N Squared, & T.O.N.E.)
Chris: The winters are cold, but the summers are hot
