God bless the hood where my money always good
i can get you take it now thinkin couldn't when i could son
i live above the rim and pay the full like my n_gga would
crack is old n_ggas wish, we all wish a n_gga would
crack a joke like he wanna battle for the mic
this is brooklynn, the planet
y'all n_ggas is just satelites
revolve around my every word
i address the crowd like lincoln at Gettysberg
surrounded by the heavy herb

the crowd is more or less
war to war here for the pure
hip-hop how im rockin got them dropin they jaw
fire marshall blocking the door
theres a crack like they chopping the raw
this the sh_t the cops stoping us for
this the reign of the tek and them motherf**king b nuts
slice like the nip-tuck
specialize in deep cuts
its the music that you ridin to
provided to you by kweli and hi-tek the livest two...
yeah, what we need?



the more i put into it the more it, the less it sounds like nonsense
the more natural the less conscience,
at the same time the more bomb sh_t
the less the devill got a grip
i get it loose we gotta slip away, the ghetto gotta get
more for a dollar
more frescas for purchase
less liqour stores
less churches that be lookin like corner stores
more rap songs that stress purpose with
less masaging and less curses
lets put more depth in our verses, till they left on the surface
while we stomp through the underground
the cop don't come around
you sort of hoping for that reflection
you sort of open imma heed call him chosen
i don't play with your emotions,
stop acting so God damn emotional
i give you these bars for free like they promotional,
this ain't no marketing strategy
it had to be from the heart in order to be reality
what we need?
