Redefinition, turning your play into a tragedy Exhibit level degree on the mic, passionately Niggaz is sweet so I bet if I bit I'd get a cavity Livin' to get high, you ain't flyer than gravity
We Die Hard like the battery done in the back of me by the mad mc Who think imitation is the highest form of flattery, actually Don't be mad at me, I had to be the one to break it to you You get kicked into obscurity like judo, no Menudo
'Cause you pseudo, tryin' to compete with reality like Xerox Towards destruction you spiraling like hair locks, wipe them teardrops Chasing stars in your eyes, playing games with your lives Now the wives is widows soakin' up pillows, weepin' like willows
Still mo' blacks is dyin', kids ain't livin' they tryin' 'How to Make a Slave' by Willie Lynch is still applyin' Regardless, the Mos is one of my closest partners Rockin' ever since before Prince was called 'The Artist'
Rocker before Funk master Flex was rockin' Starter When 'Pac and Biggie was still cool before they was martyrs Life or death, if I'm choosin' with every breath I'm enhancin' Stop, there comes a time when you can't run
What, lyrically handsome, call collect a king's ransom Jams I write soon become the ghetto anthem Way out like Bruce Wayne's mansion, move like a phantom You'll talk about me to your grandsons
Cats who claimin' they hard be mad fag So I run through em like, flood water through sandbags Competition is mad, what I got, they can't have Sinkin' they ship, like Moby dick, did Ahab

Hotter than tales of crack peddlin', makin' 'em woop Like blue gelatin, swing like Duke Ellington Broader than Barrington Levy, believe me The hot oppresion rent who burn down your chief tepee, you see me?
One two three, Mos Def and Talib Kweli We came to rock it on to the tip-top Best alliance in hip-hop, wayohh I said, one two tree, Black Star shine eternally
We came to rock it on to the tip-top Because we rulin' hip-hop, yes we is rulin' hip-hop Talib Kweli is rulin' hip-hop Say we Black Star we rule hip-hop, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, woah
