I come back. Every year I get newer. I'm the dust on the moon. I'm the trash in the sewer. Let's go. I come back. Every year I get brighter. If you thinking hip-hop is alive, hold up your lighter. Let's go! I come back. Every year I'm expanding. Talking to developers about this city we planning. Come on! I come back. Through any endeavor... This is hip-hop. We going to last forever.

Hip means to know. It's a form of intelligence. To be hip is to be up-date and relevant. Hop is a form of movement. You can't just observe a hop. You got to hop up and do it. Hip and hop is more than music. Hip is the knowledge. Hop is the movement. Hip and hop is intelligent movement. Or relevant movement. We selling the music. So write this down on your black books and journals: hip-hop culture is eternal. Run and tell all your friends. An ancient civilization has been born again. It's a fact.

I come back. Every year I'm the strongest. KRS-One, Marley Marl. Yup, we last the longest. Let's go. I come back. Because I'm not in the physical. I create myself. Man, I live in the spiritual. I come back through the cycles of life. If you been here once you going to be here twice. So I tell you...I come back. Because you must learn, too. Hip-hop culture is eternal.

Hip-hop! Her Infinite Power Helping Oppressed People. We are unique and unequaled. Hip-hop! Holy Integrated People Having Omnipresent Power. The watchman's in the tower of hip-hop. Hydrogen Iodine Phosphorous Hydrogen Oxygen Phosphorous. That's called hip-hop. The response of cosmic consciousness to our condition as hip-hop. We got to think about the children we bringing up. When hip and hop means intelligence springing up. We singing what? Sickness, hatred, ignorance and poverty? Or health, love, awareness and wealth? Follow me!

I come back. Every year I get newer. I'm the dust on the moon. I'm the trash in the sewer. That's right! I come back. Every year I get brighter. If you think hip-hop is alive, hold up your lighter. Let's go! I come back. Every year I'm expanding. Talking to developers about this city we planning. Come on! I come back. Through any endeavor... This is hip-hop. We going to last forever.

We will be here forever. We will still be here forever. Get what I'm saying? Forever! Marley! I come back. Every year, I get newer. That's that. That's that.

It took 20 years. I had to battle. It took 20 years to get Marley in the studio. Yo, that's real talk because that's all it was.
