Black Star - Definition

0 (0 Likes / 0 Dislikes)
Hello, everybody! Recording live from somewhere.

Lord! Lord have mercy. All nice and decent crew, follow me now, we say. Say Hi-Tek, yes, you're ruling hip-hop. Say J. Rawls, yes, you're ruling hip-hop. Redefinition say you're ruling hip-hop. Say Black Star come to rock it non.

From the first to the last of it. Delivery is passionate. The whole and not the half of it. Forecast and aftermath of it. Projectile that them blasted with. Accurate assassin shit. Me and Kweli close like Bethlehem and Nazareth. After this you be pressing rewind on top your master disk. Shining like an asterisk for all those that be gathering. Connecting like a roundhouse from the townhouse to the tenements. Because all my Brooklyn residents known as heavy regiments. Don't believe, here the evidence, where Brooklyn? See that? Woah! Bound to take it all, kid. Believe that! From where they sell they tree at to where the police be at. Talib Kweli, equality, yo, tell them where we be at.

Brooklyn, New York City, where they paint murals of Biggie. In cash we trust because it's ghetto fabulous. Life look pretty. What a pity! Blunts is still fifty cents. It's intense. Tree scents is dominant can't be covered with incense. My presence felt my name is Kweli from the Eternal Reflection. People thinking MC is short hand for misconception. Let me meditate, set it straight. Came to the conclusion that most of these cats is featherweight. Let me demonstrate. Walking the streets is like battling. Be careful with your body. You must know karate or think your soul is bulletproof like Sade. Stop acting like a bitch already. Be a visionary and maybe you can see your name in the column of obituaries. Third grade teacher reading and talking about "I knew he'd amount to nothing." Neighbors like, "He was the quiet type. Who'd have thought they was fronting?" Talking loud like you on RCA. Get carted away with body parts and trays. What a way to start your day. Yo it's like:

One, two, three. Mos Def and Talib Kweli. We came to rock it on to the tip-top. Best alliance in hip-hop. Y-O! I said one, two, three. It's kind of dangerous to be an MC. They shot 2Pac and Biggie. Too much violence in hip-hop. Y-O!

License and registration. Please. What's the problem officer? What are you? Deaf? Listen. It's a video. It's a music video. We got the permit right there. What kind of video? Music video!

I said Manhattan keep on making it. Brooklyn keep on taking it. So relax we're taking it back. Red Hook where we're living at. Plenty cats be struggling not hustling and bubbling. It ain't about production and... what else we discussing? When the cock crows, my crop grows. Enable me to rock flows. Striving for perfection ever since I was a snot-nose. Colossal! True original b-boy apostle. Standing on the rooftop with the Zulu Gestapo.

You think you the shit? Somebody in the wings'll force you to quit. It could be your crew or click or some random kid you smoked buddha with. Consider me the entity within the industry without a history of spitting the epitome of stupidity. Living my life, expressing my liberty. It got to be done properly. My name is in the middle of equality. People follow me, and other cats they hear them flow and assume I'm the real one with lyrics like I'm Cyrano.

Still sipping wishing well water imported from Pluto. Three hundred and sixty milliliters for all the believers. In miles or kilometers, most cats, cannot proceed us. In the jungle with the leaders, we them lions, you the cheetahs. Our cypher will complete us as we come through your receivers. You can play us and repeat us, and then take us home and read us. Line for line. Good Jesus! Mos Def and Kweli just make a pussy freeze up. Think it over. Ease up.

One, two, three. Mos Def and Talib Kweli. We came to rock it on to the tip-top. Best alliance in hip-hop. Y-O! I said one, two, three. It's kind of dangerous to be an MC. They shot 2Pac and Biggie. Hold your head when the beat drop. Y-O!
