they lit the pentagon on fire, thats lighting the pentagram on fire"

Check your boy out man
We operating on our low desires, listen
Ain't it funny, how things go
The more you live, you deal with parts of life you didn't know
Chasing dreams, and over nothing going on a limb
You bringing others in your troubles, jepordizing them the question is
Ain't it funny, and kinda strange
Just when you think you got it figured out, the game change
Mama said, what'll make you laugh will make you cry
Living and knowing we ain't perfect, but we gotta try
Lil' sister was fast growing up, nothing could hold her
Thugs attracted her, her own mother couldn't control her
Big brother knew the game, and everytime that he seen her he told her
Concentrate on other things, focus on men when you're older
She met a hustler, who was bad news and everyone sensed it
Some of her friends knew his history, and they warned her against it
She wasn't tripping, cause his lifestyle and his money had trapped her
But the first time that she went against the grain, he slapped her
And beat her down like a man, throwed her clothes in the street
Told her brother and with tears in his eyes, he loaded his piece
And came searching for that coward, went straight to his hood
Ready to sacrifice his own freedom, for the love of his blood
When he caught him he pistol whooped him, shot holes in his Benz
Went to jail attempted murder, fifteen years in the Pen
But for his kin, if he had to do it again he'd still get him
He wasn't gone for a month, and his lil' sister was right back with him
You met a young lady, who still possessed the mind of a girl
Full of love and trust, but sheltered and not lead to the world
Saving herself, the kind that no man was supposed to touch
Inexperienced, and had never been exposed to much
Fed her some game and reeled her in fast, you was the first
Instead of bringing out the best in her, you reach for the worst
Heavily influenced by love, she did whatever he said
He talked her in to letting another female, into the bed
Trying to live out fantasies, with a wife who was down
But what you thought you wanted, back-fired and got switched around
Didn't know, the other female was a veteran too
Who was able to do a few things, better than you
Now your girl starts to doubt you, it's no longer about you
You get home from work, and they already done started without you
You on the outside looking in, was fly and conceded
Your wife got turned out, and it's obvious you no longer needed
Over time, long relationships start to fail
Use to be easy to distinguish, now it's hard to tell
Who is real and who is counterfeit, the truth from lies
People you thought you really knew, start showing other sides
Claiming it's love but come up missing, when it's time to show
Grew up together, now you treating me like I'm the foe
Know all your secrets all the dirt you did, but kept it well
And even if we turned to enemies, still wouldn't tell
Blood sweat and tears, are mandatory that's the price
How you gon reap life's benefits, without a sacrifice
Trust in that you gotta scuffle, to come up and stack
You bout to crack, because you gave all and got nothing back
How come our children are so angry now, and quick to bust
They disappointed in this B-S, that they get from us
But you'll die, if unjustified or you seek
Elijah said, think five times before you speak yeah

"Homey, you all front backwards if you chasin a bi*ch
Stupid - chase the paper they come with the sh*t"
50 Cent - Ryder Music
"We paid the price to circular success they turned my mic up
I bout to hit these n*ggas that'll light they life up
If every n*gga in your clique is rich your clique is rugged
Nobody will fall cause everyone will be each others crutches"
Jay-Z - "Feelin' It"
"I say the wise man don't play the role of a fool
The first thing a man must obtain is Twelve Jewelz
Knowledge Wisdom Understanding to help you achieve
Freedom, Justice Equality Food Clothing and Shelter
After this, Love Peace and Happiness
He had the nappiest head, I told him total satisfaction
is to achieve one goal in the scheme of things
He who works like a slave, eats like a king"

That line on that unreleased Nas song: Nothing Lasts Forever about
how your favorite restauraunts and hang outs disappear when you get
older. Nas should've made a video off that song.

"Do you believe when they say we aint shyt? we can't grow?/
All we are is dope dealers and gangstas and hoes?/
And you we believe when they be tellin you lies?/
All on the media they make the world look crazy to keep you inside?/
Why you listen when the teachers at school/
know you a young single parent strugglin, they think you a fool/
Give ya kids bad grades and put 'em in dumber classes/
killin shorty future, I wonder how do we last it/
underground in the casket/
ancestors turnin, I'm learnin somethin every day there is no Lazereth/
Words like God is Greek or Latin/
So if you studied Egypt, you'd see the truth written by the masters/
my n*ggas is chillin, gettin high relaxin/
invisionin ownership, yo it could happen/
what do we own/
not enough land, not enough homes/
not enough banks, to give my brother a loan/
what do we own, the skin on our backs/
we rent and we ask/
for reperations, then they hit us wit tax/
and insuruance if we live to be old/
but what about now, so STOP BEIN CONTROLLED/

Oh yea, this is crazy too!
"Ain't nothin changed, 'cept the chains/
they restrainin our physical frame/
mentally we still livin the same/
its lockdown, they knocked down the towers to raise tax/
anything they burn we pay back/
I live in the hood, you'll never bump into Pat Seajack/
But we spin the wheel every time we chill cuz cops hate blacks/
and Hispanics/ they draw gats and just slam it/
before they ask where your hand is/
I don't see how a wallet can be mistakened for a cannon"
Joell Ortiz - "Modern Day Slavery"
"Our people are the product of genocide and slavery/
Everything in the ghetto was how it was made to be/
Designed in a process, Prison Industrial Complex/
n*ggaz transformed into numbers and objects/
We pay the devil rent for living in hell/
Cuz the projects was built on the spot where Lucifer fell/
Incarcerated knowledge heavy weight/
Every black man should read Deutoronomy Chapter 28/
Cursed in the city like we're cursed in the field
Cursed on the border, and cursed by the New World Order
Our sons and daughters were stolen by another people
Yokovian, end of the Earth, land of the Eagle/
This is the sequel to the prophecy/
Freedom when peaceful then violent is my philosophy/
I built an army, now I'm gonna build a nation/
The foundation of a new civilization/
And overthrow the plantation"

Uhh, what's love when you don't give your man enough dough?
He wanna stick you
What's love, you got beef?
Nobody rollin wit you
What's love, you locked up, and your family don't care
Is love a four-letter word, that deceives the air?
What's real, when you know your man's girl is a hoe
And you don't even let him know, cause you fu*ked her befo'
What's real, when you talk behind a man's back
then you see him and give him dap, now explain that?
What's trust, when they seperate your case
When you at your court date, your co-de', can't look in your face
What's trust, when you keep your wife away from your man?
And he never crossed you, but you claimin he's fam'?
What's trust, when you get bust, your n*ggaz don't retaliate?
They blaze purple haze with em the next day?
God forbid one of my n*ggaz get hit, I'ma go haywire
Won't hesitate, I'ma spray fire
But everybody's different, you won't know how you react
til you in that position, and that's an actual fact
The hearts of men change as time goes on, who's wrong?
You was hungry when you stuck Duke, he came back to buck you
Who's wrong? Foul all your life, now you 90
On your deathbed you regret bein grimy
What's lust, a bust nut? What's a thug?
A ghetto child raised around drugs, til he's old enough to bust slugs?
Then what's jail, to rehabilitate, or to make a n*gga worse
when he come home to catch another case?
Life's about decisions, you choose it, you gotta live it
You did it, heaven or hell or prison
Who knows when your clock'll stop tickin, get your weight up
Save up before it's over neighbor, I told ya
You gettin older player, look at those who gave up

I'm so independent sh.. i might buy Koch
I might not stop
Places to cop, 76 floors you can call me the Doc
Inspired by Boesky, got my chariots of fire
Everybody took shots, hit my body up, I'm tired
Build me up break me down to build me up again
They like "Hov we need you back so we can k!ll ya as. again"
Hov got flow, though he's no Big and Pac, but he's close
How I'm 'posed to win? They got me f!ghting ghosts...
Same sword the knight you they gon' good night you with
Sh.., Thats only half if they like you
That aint even the half what they might do
Dont believe me ask Michael
See Martin, see Malcolm
You See Biggie, see Pac, see success and its outcome
See Jesus, see Judas, see Caesar, see Brutus
See success is like suicide
suicide is a suicide
If you succeed, prepare to be crucified
Media meddles, ni..as sue you, you settle
Every step you take, they remind you, you ghetto
So its tough being Bobby Brown
To be Bobby then, you gotta be Bobby now
Now the question is, "Is to have had and lost
Better than not having at [all]?"
Everybody wanna be the King then shots ring
You layin on your balcony with holes in your dream
Or you Malcolm X'd out, get distracted by screams
Everybody get your hand off my jeans!
Everybody look at you strange say you changed
Uhh! Like you work that hard to stay the same
Uhh! Game stays the same the name changes
So its best for those to not overdose on being famous
Most kings get driven so insane
That they try to hit the same vein that Kurt Cobain did
??No dangers, so shameless??
Invited to the intersanctum of yo chambers
??Low chained em as the enemies approach??
So raise ya draw bridge and drown em in the moat
And the Spirit I'm evokin
**Mumbles some BS** Hold on...
Everybody screamin they want the old Hov
But the new improved Hov hit like Albert Pujols
Everybody wanna hear me talk that money like Phil Rizzuto
But my mind is on Pluto
Bills that I do fold, i now invest on
Tryna find some loopholes in the IRS
As where I used to have a few bi..hes I am just
Concentratin on makin a new Hov through s3x
I've awaken just in time to school those putos
Tryna follow in my shoes wit jewels froze
Better adhere to this tax 'fore you go
Broke, spendin more than you've accrued on silly baguettes
I know silly baguettes, silly you'll learn on your own
At least my conscience is clear, I'm no longer steering you wrong
Aint nothing wrong with baguettes after you get a home
Take care of your home, you can go back and **Ugh!**
I'm getting courted by the bosses,
The Edgars And Doug Morris-es-es
Jimmy I's and Lyors-es its
Gotta be more than the choruses
They respecting my mind now
Just a matter of time now
Operation: Takeover Corporate
Makeover offices-es-es then takeover all of it
Please may these words be recorded
To serve as testimony that i saw it all before it
Came to fruition, sort of a preminition
Uncontrollable, hustler's ambition
Alias, SUPERSTITION, like Stevie
THE WRITINGS ON THE WALL, like my lady, right BB
Saw it all before some of yall thought I was crazy maybe
Like a fox I'm cagey, Ah Ah!
The more successful, the more stressful
The more and more I transform to Gordan Gekko
In the race to a billion got my face to the ceiling
Got my knees on the floor plz Lord forgive him
Has he lost his religion, is the greed gon' get him?
He's having heaven on earth, will his wings still fit him?
I got the Forbes on my living room floor
And I'm still talkin to the poor, ni..a I want more
TIME's most influential, was impressive
'Specially since, I wasnt in the artist section
Had me with the builders and the titans
Had me right with Rupie Murdoch
Billionaire Boys and some dudes you never heard of
Word up on Madison Ave, is I'm a Cash cow
Word down on Wall Street homie, you get the cash out
IPO Hov no need for reverse merger
The boy money talk no need to converse further
The baby blue Maybach like I own Gerber
Boardroom I'm liftin ya skirt up

That whole verse was real dope.
And a lot of KRS-ONE'S Lines.
even that line in the nike air force song was dope.
"rappers spit rhymes that are mostly illegal, emcees spit rhymes to uplift their people."
