[ verse 1: El Da Sensei (& dj Kaos) ]

Aight little man, let me tell you 'bout the days

When your favorite mc's had no major airplay (What?)

No video, car, crib or large deals (Huh?)

Only a single got you city-wide appeal (Damn!)

Showin your skill upon the mic, originality was key

And the law was not to bite in the highest degree (I hear that)

Plus you had to battle cats for respect

(Like Moe Dee, Busy Bee, mc Shan and krs?)

Yeah kid, it goes deeper but you get the picture

You had to have lyrics and plus hot beats to get the mixture

As always you had to have the ill dj

Technician with precision, switch the fader all day

A must to have these additives to smash and battle kids

(Well yo, that's like today's cats?) Nah, that's a negative

Today's mc's don't possess these qualities

So I put you to the test on this musical quest

[ verse 2: El Da Sensei (& dj Kaos) ]

Look at the records in this store, know the faces and the names

All the places that they come from and staked it as their claim

Acclaimed writers like Kane, G Rap, Doug and the Biz

Dj's like Cool V, Mister Cee in the mix

(Yo, I heard this one kid who made beats and rhymed correct)

You must be talkin 'bout this man here, his name is Lord Finesse

(It was another cat too, yo this nigga beats was hot

He was down with cl Smooth) The Soul Brother Pete Rock

Plenty others I could name but the most by far

These pioneers most revered, group named Gang Starr

Put it down through the years, most respected by the peers

For Primo's hot beats, Guru's voice so clear

(Yeah, I know about them, " Hard to Earn" one of the best

What about the Cella Dwellas, Special Ed, and Das efx?)

Ah shit, you got some history, you're buildin on your lessons

When you see me next time be refined for your confession

[ Kaos ]

Yo, I'ma cop this, word up

[ El ]

Yeah, yo do that, you do that

[ Kaos ]

I heard this on " Future Flavas" the other night

[ El ]

Okay, okay

[ Kaos ]

[ El ]

[ El ]

What's the question?

[ El ]

What's the question?

[ Kaos ]
