- Hip Hop is prosecution evidence/ The out of court settlement/ Ad space for liquor
- Restlessness is my nemesis/ It's hard to just chill and sit still
- Hip-Hop went from selling crack to smoking it
- Young bloods can't spell but they can rock you in Playstation
- Universal ghetto life, holla black you know it well
- Peace before everything, God before anything / Love before anything, real before everything / Home before anyplace, truth before anything / Style and stay radiate, love power slay the hate
- Flow greatest like the greatest lakes / Capes on great estates, quiet water major waves
- Reservations, exclusive arrangements / Dinner with the patrons, the scenery is amazing / It's so outrageous, they whisper when they say it / When it's really real it's even realer than "The Matrix"
- Steer the course, make a way / And come ashore on a greater day
