Try to answer to the master or the MC rap God is no joke

On the lyric, its hard to be modest I knew I was the man with the master plan

To make you wiggle and jiggle, like gelatin Just think while I sink, into the brain structure (don't sleep on the e) you see, something might rupture I don't take time for me to blow your mind Take a second to wreck it because you're dumb and blind

So just lounge, cause you're a MC clown Go join the circus, EPMD in town Total chaos, no mass confusion Rhymes so hypnotizing known to cause an illusion Like a magician, who pulls a rabbit out a hat, son I pull them all like a .44 magnum MC freeze stop look and listen, and try to imagine Its traveling the speed of light, but everything's motion Is frightening, plus the thought you alone You now enter dimension, called the twilight zone You're terrified, plus you cant bear the thought You and I one-on-one, in the land of the lost You start to shiver, but then you scream, my friend Yo wake up muttley, because you're dreaming again But next time I'm on the scene, do not try to diss us Keep your mouth shut sucker duck, because I'm strictly business This is the rap season, where the e starts pleasing Girls around the world no need to be skeezing When I roll I stroll, cool always pack a tool Just in case, a brother acts a fool Ive got the energy, to put the girls in the frenzy Put it in shock when I rock, give it up I'm not stingy Make sure I don't bore when I'm on the dance floor (get busy, boy) like you never saw before Rhyme flow, good to go, after the show, Ill pull your hoe, boy

A new tribute to old ways

Franck Jalleau’s flexible and vigorous typeface is inspired by Venetian faces of the Renaissance, especially those cut by Francesco Griffo who lends it his name. Adopting old-style classicism and manual drawing, Francesco is soft and approachable without compromising readability.

Francesco is designed like no other contemporary typeface. With its obstructed counterforms (a, e), it evokes 15th-century prints. Yet this face isn’t mere pastiche; it is informed by traditional techniques. Just as punchcutters did by cutting letters from steel one by one, Jalleau gave each glyph, even similar ones, its own shape, bringing variety to the setting. Likewise, shapes such as serifs that are commonly replicated in current practice, are individually crafted, rendering a vibrant, lively text. Numerous ligatures and alternates further enhance titles and short texts. 

Among Francesco’s historical sources is the famous *Hypnerotomachia Poliphili* printed in 1499 by Aldus Manutius, the greatest printer of the Renaissance. Jalleau carefully studied this mythic book of fine typography to inform his digital work. By learning from classical process, rather than simply replicating a look, Francesco is an unprecedented modern manifestation of the Renaissance.
