About* 35 seconds of ad libs [Black *

Thought] We
go wow ba-da-da-dow-da-dah-ow, Either
stand tall just, sit the f k**down All
the way from the 2-1-5th to Bucktown Brace
yourself it's, about to go down [Mos

Def] Runnin
one on one and only hip-hop bound Yo
Tariq (whassup) how your micraphone sound (It
sound tight) well aight show, em what it's about [Black

Thought] We
got to blow up the spot because, they must have forget We
double (trouble) bubble (bubble) bubble (bubblin hot) Well

it's like smack the track up and leave dents in it The
vocalist bustin, this blunt instrument, spit The
magnificent rapper's, run from it All
fly girls nipples, and toes numb, from it Mc's
in my circumference is, confronted son Get
your growth stunted from this you, don't want it (What
n anus)?The Black Thought and M-O-S Def done it Who
the ultimate Yo? my man speak upon it [Mos

Def] Aiyyo
I stop fools and drop jewels but never run it Rock
mics so nice I make you stock price plummet All
you high noon riders better rally at the summit It's
me and Tariq and your fleet outnumbered Cross
the membrane barkin big game and get hunted Eyewitness
account say, it happened so sudden Just
slid off to the side didn't, really say nuttin Then
blaow blew, away the 1900th [Black

Thought] You
better get your rest cause the next day comin Oh
yes and, mc's they scared to say sum'tin Stop
frontin I'm, in the cut just onlookin Your
get your kings your, rooks rings, and pawns tooken [Mos

Def] Aiyyo
keep, your tape rollin so you catch every bar Of
the Black Thought and the black man from Black Star Illadelph
and Vietnam we conference accomplish, Even
with stakes inclined I, get mine regardless, [Black

Thought] Yo
a, lot of Smurfette mc's carry purses And
rock uniforms, that's, made for nurses I
burst your verses your, words is worthless Only
touchin surface the, fuck's the purpose [Mos?

Def] I
shot the sherriff the, deputy and, head of bank treasury So
mounties in the county got a big bounty stressin me But
tell 'em to hold off they, too short to measure me Mos
and Black Thought blast forth with the weaponry [both

interwined] Like
blaow-ba-dow-da-da-dow-da-dah-ow Either
stand tall or sit the f k**down All
the way from the 2-1-5th to Bucktown Brace
yourself it's, about to go down [Mos

Def] Yo
Tariq (whassup) how your micraphone sound (It
sound tight) well aight show, em what it's about [both

intertwined] We
got to blow up the spot because, they must have forget We
double (trouble) bubble (bubble) bubble (bubblin hot) [Mos

Def] Yeah
now, check your stove top before you take a listen And
make sure beans don't burn in the kitchen These
gassed-up ni z***just ain't fuel efficient I
play the winter breeze to choke hold your piston (eh-eh-eh-eh)
Now you ni z***can't make pole position Class
E chassis can't hold the transmission Crew
pit useless, they, got they tools missin Watch
me grand, prix champy, for wealth driven [Black

Thought] Yo
you, go one for my hustle (hustle) Two
to rock rhyme (two to rock rhyme) From
the muscle kid I'm one of the illets of all time I
swing from chandeliers and wall climb And
specialize in warfares of all kind A
lot of mc's said I'm a run it down rhyme But
half the time they, run it down one of mine Thought
suffocatin em with yet another stunnin line You
dumb and blind kid it's, enlarged and underlined [Mos

Def] What
I memorized leave your whole staff pressurized Melt
down all of your artificial lies Y'all
ni z***is faker than Yellow No 5. Swine
like mono and diglyceride My
vocals got texture you, just texturized I'm
nicer than your writtens even when I'm improvised Step
into my zone get flown like fly By
the b-boy Lazarus who just won't die [Black

Thought] Yo
me, and Kamal and Leanord Hubbard Uestlove, ? and Malik We
go back to dollar hoagies and Tahitian Treat Or
like toast in the oven with government cheese bubblin Me
and Dante like Marvin The, Troublemen travellin Give
me the mic we, on that again B-boy
business off, the top actin and battlin Servin
them cats that forgot But
don't get too close because, you might get shot [both

interwined] Like
blaow-ba-dow-da-da-dow-da-dah-ow Either
stand tall or sit the f k**down All
the way from the 2-1-5th to Bucktown Brace
yourself it's, about to go down [Mos

Def] Yo
Tariq (whassup) how your micraphone sound (It
sound tight) well aight show, em what it's about [both

intertwined] We
bout to blow up the spot because, y'all must have forget We
double (trouble) bubble (bubble) bubble (bubblin hot) We

go blaow-ba-dow-da-da-dow-da-dah-ow Either
stand tall or sit the f k**down All
the way from the 2-1-5th to Bucktown Went
from _Do You Want More _?!??!! to what you want now [Mos?

Def] Yo
Tariq (whassup) how your micraphone sound (It
sound tight) well aight show, em what it's about [both

intertwined] We
bout to blow up the spot because, y'all must have forget We
double (trouble) bubble (bubble) bubble (bubblin hot) [Mos

Def] Say
here's a little story that must be told About
two young brothers who got so much soul They
takin total control of, the body and brain Flyin
high in the sky on, a lyrical plane It's
just two bad brothers who will never quit Mos
Def and Tariq from the 2-1-5th They
rock beginnin to end on, a spiritual blend And
everybody who forgot then baby tell em again It's
just me and Tariq with, Ahmir on the beat The
Roots crew baby yo we got to make it unique We
got the soul-shockinest body-rockinest, Non-stoppinest
_Fortified, Live_ survive the apocalypse Rhymes
we say the, perfect blend Because
we know how to rock when the beat come in Like
zen-zen-zen-zen-zen Zen-zen-zen-zen-zen
zen-zen, zen-zen, Zen
zen-zen zen, zen zen zen zen zen Zen
zen zen, zen zen-zen Zen-zen-zen
zen, zen zen zen Here
we go here, we here we here we go Zen
zen-zen zen, zen zen zen zen zen Zen
zen zen, zen zen-zen Zen-zen-zen-zen-zen
zen-zen, zen-zen, Let
the poppers pop and, the breakers break Then
zen-zen-zen-zen-zen Zen-zen-zen-zen-zen
zen-zen, zen-zen, Two
years ago a, friend of mine Zen
zen zen, zen zen-zen, zen-zen Fades... *
